I didn't make it!

I am trying to stay as organized as possible, because I used to just put everything in the root Override and that didn't work out too well.

1. Can I put mods into sub folders? 2. Can I put multiple .2da files in the override foler (ex. 2 spells.2da in separate sub folder) 3. If no (for #2), is there a way I can make mods work together easily for conflicting mods with different appearance.2da files and they both don't have TSL patcher?

Some of these may be stupid questions but I haven't really looked into this before. Thank you.

lococop;45601791. Can I put mods into sub folders?

Yes, you can put mods in sub-folders, but not mods in folders which are in sub-folders.

2. Can I put multiple .2da files in the override foler (ex. 2 spells.2da in separate sub folder)

If you do not use the TSL patcher for the installation of those two spells.2da you will have to edit the spells.2da by yourself in order to reduce the errors.

3. If no (for #2), is there a way I can make mods work together easily for conflicting mods with different appearance.2da files and they both don't have TSL patcher?

Once again, whenever you have multiple mods, and .2da files, it is recommendable to use TSL patcher. As for the conflicting mods part; if you use mods that are created by the same author, it's not conflicting, as he won't let his own mods conflict. If it's of multiple authors, be sure to check if they are compatible; or ask the author if you don't know.

You can put mods in subfolders, but all 2da's need to be in the main override. Usually mods now are compatable because of the TSLPatcher. If not you can always manually edit them.
