You can simply update the mod_info.json file, the latest version seems to work just fine with 0.95.

Not for me. Crashes with a null error with more than a few of mods (what mods doesn't seem to matter).

This mod seems to have been included into the base game.

It's Nexerelin that integrates Version Checker, not vanilla. Though that seems to have worked without me doing anything for compatibility.

Sounds like you're implying Nex isn't the basic state the game should be in. XP

By looking on the forums once a playthrough is over just as we always did  :P

Feature request: read version from mod_info.json instead of .version file. Data duplication is the root of all evil.

... The version file contains useful _other_ information, so it's sensible to retain that, but its version field even has the same syntax as the one in mod_info.json and the latter is already required. So... yeah, just drop the duplicate (or rather deprecate and make optional now, drop in the next major version).

Alternatively, is there a legitimate use case for having different values in mod_info.json and in .version? Say, "1.0.0" vs. "1.0.1" or "1.0.0" vs. "2.0.0"?
(I cannot see one, but it might well exist? MS Windows, for example, has no less than three different version numbers but truth be told, I do not find that helpful at all.)

Same for field "modName" - it duplicates mod_info.json field "name". There, it's not so much a problem, because the name will not generally change. But better be tidy as a general rule.
