Nexus or Steam?
Sorry if this has been asked recently, but I was wondering what was better/easier for modding. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

The Nexus offers you a mod manager which allows you to safely download and install mods.
It also deals with the common laodorder issues.
For a new modder, its a good choice

Cool, bro.

Nexus. Workshop is for nubs and will only limit your selection and flexibility with mods.

You can use both, both have their ups and downs.

This. I prefer to use nexus when I can, but there is nothing stopping you from using both.

Nexus is BY FAR better. Because there is like 50,000 mods on it that Steam doesn't have and Nexus let's you be more in control with the Nexus Mod Manager.

Steam fine if you want basic or small mods that steam has. Personally I use both myself, but if I had to pick just one I personnally would take Nexus over steam.
Why? because Nexus has far more mods and the unoffical patches.

I agree Nexus is the way to go

Thanks for all the help all! Looks like Nexus is more preferred, so I guess I'll grab that!

Sitting down and planning your mod environment is far more important than pondering about current differences between Nexus and Workshop.

Don't just upload what you think is cool. Take your time to search around and build your mod environment around central mods, frameworks and themes. Similar popular mods tend to support each other - as you can often see from ReadMe - and don't mess up others scripts and conditions.

I am personally using Nexus. It has more co-work between different modders.

Lets not pick on Steam for the unofficial patches having to be moved to Nexus. It is better that they are there all the same. Even if NMM refuses to load them for me. I had to reinstall the older versions to get my game back working. I use both Nexus and Workshop. I too prefer Nexus over workshop. As someone already said. Each has it plus and minuses.

Use both; if you choose to use only one or the other, then you're missing out on mods that aren't provided from both sources.

Then there are the mods which appear on neither and in a lot of cases there's a good reason for that.
Like the ones on LL
