modCleaner is a 2 part toolset that consists of a 1-page browser-based application and a batch file.
you run the web page, export a list of mods. then, run the batch file to build a new, clean folder of your active mods.
why use it?
it is so, so easy to get "mod bloat"; and before you know it your game is loading in hundreds of mods.
while it's fun to play with lots of mods, it can create performance issues. or, you have the dreaded feelings of... "am i even using that mod?" so, you just leave it there to be safe. and so starts the mod-bloat :(
with this toolset, you can quickly identify the mods YOU ARE USING... those that are actually ACTIVE.
and then, use that list to make a nice, clean new directory that only contains those mods.
and, if you want to export your game to a server, this is an excellent way to build a directory of mods you need to ftp to your server.
or maybe you want to try out a new map? instead of heaving over all your mods, just get a nice active sub-set of them from your currently played map to use.
here's a "use case"...
let's say you have 100 mods. when you launch your game, the "checked" mods to load into your map is only 75 of the initial 100. however, of that 75 you are only actually using 25 in-game (trucks, tractors, plows, etc). using this tool, you can get those 25... make a copy of them and then only place those in your mods folder for that specific map; saving you the load times, resource use and potential conflicts of
