Make loading a save without esm/esp show which ones are missing

Post by MinerMan60101 » 16 Sep 2017, 17:06

I had an idea that would help quality of life for OpenMW. When loading up a save after telling the game not to load certain files, make the game say which files aren't being loaded. This way, if you screw up in a way that isn't obvious when uninstalling mods, you are able to find out easily.

I have no idea how easy or hard this is, or if this has to wait for 1.0. I just had an idea and wanted to say it.

See openmw.log (path here). The information you seek can be easily found there.

Still, it doesn't seem like a bad idea to include this for convenience. It doesn't seem like it would be hard to include, maybe with a statement telling the user where to find the log in case the list of differences is rather large.
