I sometime even make custom .ico files for the mod's shortcut icon if there isn't one already with the installer .exe or mod folder
However, I'll often use Six Updater/Launcher nowadays if I want to play the game with beta patches in addition to mods.
I use launcher with custom presets and doubt anything easier exists.
tnx for the intell
Add "Save as preset" and "Load preset" buttons and it will be perfect.

The reasons I don't recommend this method to my friends:
1. You have to start the game twice. This takes a lot of time.
2. If one of the mods you activate have a problem that prevents the game from loading, you will need to have some good knowledge how to edit the ini file to get rid of it, since you can't start the game to disable the mod that is preventing the game from starting.
3. No option for presets.
While I appreciate Bohemia trying to make mod usage easier, I find this feature not very useful for this purpose due to its very significant disadvantages.
SU for me, make ‘Preset’/s, short cut them to ‘Game’ folder, rename them with a short name ‘Game 1’ etc, job done. Only open up SU when I want to update, which with everything going on at present is quite often...
