At the moment I have stayed clear of using steam workshop to download mods. Simple reason being almost total lack of control for modding. I do however enjoy the idea of auto-updating mods. What im wondering is if it is possible to somehow divert steam workshop mod downloads to a new folder as archives? This would allow me to transfer them to WB for customization and re-packaging. I really do not want steam to auto install the mods it downloads as this could lead to serious compatibility issues. Atm i launch Skyrim through the WB SKSE function, just to bypass Skyrim's launcher mod ordering tool to make sure WB's package install order and plugin order are applied. Any ideas if this would be possible? Thanks.

Here are a few threads along these lines you may be interested in automatic downloading and skyrim unplugged .

We will work on a steam version if it is feasible and necessary.

Thanks frihyland. Already use skyrim unplugged and im happy to hear that a SW mod version is being considered. Having a look at the automatic downloading as well. Will present thoughts in the thread. However, what i was really wondering is if currently anybody knows someway of tricking skyrim launcher downloads to divert to another folder, and a way to block installation? I assume i could copy from the dl location and quit the launcher right before it starts to install the mods. The archives have to be downloaded to somewhere, maybe a temp folder? Tried looking but really cant find the location.

It could potentially be tricked by altering the registry key for the installation directory and having a copy of Skyrim Launcher in the alternate location. After done downloading, change the installation location back. No idea though if it's tie-in with steam would cause any problems, or if it does any checks on the installation. The latter could be tricked, it's Steam we'd have to worry about.
