This is on PC. If you can edit the modlist.txt text file and get it right, the game loads mods fine. If there is any mistake and the mod loading feature comes up, it takes many minutes with the game paralysing the computer so badly that it will even take minutes to alt tab.
Why does the game need to slowly decompress all mod files just to figure out what mods are chosen when that information is in a simple text file?
Sitting with a PC paralysed for 5+ minutes just to figure what mods need to be loaded is dysfunctional and really no fun at all.
