    Hi,

    We all know the problem of having too many mods, right? But when you are going to delete some mods you are like: nah, I totally still use that. (nope)

    I personally think It'd be great to have a tool in beamng that lets you know when you havent used a mod for some time, so that you can delete it and make your game faster

    Do you agree?

    How a=exactly do you mean, Horrible spam? It could be just a simple notification similar to the one you get whne downloading a mod with the green button, saying unused mods detected

    It would happen every time you released beamng and then people would delete the mod due to that.

    Lets suppose right

    Theres this one map, Which you hated but forgot to install and do not care about right

    And

    You get this message that a mod hasnt been used for a while
    You press the message
    You are brought to an interface which shows you the mods you havent used for a while.

    You can press "delete" or "keep", as well as "disable notifications for this mod"

    By adding random (and frankly useless) Gui apps, it takes time and work, with no return. 90 percent of people would just disable the app.

    Its not an app, its a page such as the page where you can see your computer specs in beamng

    Some way of knowing how often one uses a mod would be cool if it's a simple "time since last used" on the in game mod manager. Anything with notifications would need to be personizable to not be annoying though, or else it might have too many notifications or notifications for mods you know you don't use often but it doesn't matter that you don't.

    This is a TERRIBLE idea.

    And to be quite honest: If you forget to remove a mod you dislike/dont use the fault is in yourself for your lack of management skills.

    I was thinking of something like that because I have some mods that I don't know what the hell they are and I don't know if I ever use them or not. I would use it.

    I wouldn't really use this... I just clear out my mods folder after awhile, and usually don't notice what's missing anyway. And if I do I go back and find the mod. No need for this :p
