How do Steam Workshop mods and Nexus mods interact


All of my mods so far are on the Steam Workshop, but there are a few on Nexus that look to be quite useful. My question before I dive in is are there any potential problems that I need to be aware of mixing and matching mods from different sources? And if I use Nexus Mod Manager to manage the mods from Nexus, will I have problems with my subscriptions from Steam Workshop?

The problem you'll face are the same that what you'll have if you mix mods from the same source: some mods may be incompatible.

The only thing I can see that may be specific to the workshop is that workshop mods can take the priority, so if you have two mods that, for example, changes the same texture, the workshop mod may force its texture when updating itself.
