A per-game selection for steam file modification.
My friends and I are avid game modders, using standard modding tools such as the nexus, mod organizer, and others for different games. The issue with this is that any time steam looks at files, it overwrites them with the defaults, completely breaking the game, or there will be a new patch from the dev, and the game *will not* launch without first patching, which breaks the entire game. The "do not update my game" checkbox is currently a lie. This prevents steam from auto-updating on patch release, but if I launch an unpatched game there is no option to not update before playing. This is unacceptable at the very fundamental levels of computer operation. Forcing file overwrites on working software is bad. Adding a "Do not touch my files please Steam, I may have changed one or two" checkbox would help us tremendously.
