Conan Exiles - New Ordering System for Mods

With this new system, you can finally select the order Conan Exiles will load your mods!

This particular problem is well known across games like ARK: Survival Evolved or Minecraft. The order in which you install mods sometimes plays a bigger role than you expect. With Minecraft, you always need Forge first, because, without it, you have no mods. The same can be said for ARK or Conan Exiles. Some mods change more of the core code for the game and should be loaded first.

Thanks to this new system, Conan will now install the mods in a specific order. This will open up the door to many more possibilities for mods for Conan Exiles. Most large scale mods change the framework of the game, rather than just a few cosmetics. A good example for this would be the ARK mod Annunaki Genesis, which changes dino attributes, adds new creatures, implements new strengths and weaknesses, and so much else. For Conan Exiles, this is now a possibility.

One of the biggest mods this will help are custom maps, which need to be prioritized when loading. If ARK is any example, players can see how the modding community for this game should explode with this change. There are so many possibilities: new graphics, new textures, new sounds, and so much more.

To summarize, this is a step in the right direction. At the end of the day, a mod developer can only do what the game developers allow, and things tend to work out so much better when game dev and mod dev work together. We can now say that is happening, at least to some degree. This feature is already implemented into our server system, and loads in order as you would read form left to right.
