Outdated mods can cause problems, especially when combined with other mods like in a Nexerelin setup.
They are not outdated when I put them. And I can check if they are by myself thank you very much.,

@LazyWizard What are your thoughts with adding a CompatibleWith property that is a version number field to better show when there are breaking changes and that you probably don't want to upgrade unless you know what your doing?   Could use pattern matching like '3.*' to match all 3.X versions for example.

Sounds needlessly complicated.

Just adding a simple integer field, and then increasing it by 1 when and only when you break comp, achieves the same result without any glob or pattern matching.

Both of those solutions are unworkable due to well, the chance of every modder changing their versioning system is exactly 0%.

Edit: To clarify not saying it is bad idea, but without universal adoption it would be of dubious help.
