I am one of three people using a Steam account and I am not the original owner of that account. We all have Skyrim Special Edition and I want to use a mod in my game, but I do not want the mod to get into their games, or be linked to the Steam account, in case the mod has malware or breaks the game.
When I click mods in the game menu, it says I have to log into my Nexus account and I do have one. But it says the Nexus account will be linked with the Steam account. If I log into my Nexus account, will my mod activity be visible through the email account tied to that Steam account or on the Steam account itself?
I worry that if that Steam account is linked to by the Nexus account and I get malware from a mod then it might infect that Steam account. I also don't want any of my mods to get into the games that the other two people are playing because I know that mods are sometimes unstable and I do not want it to ruin the game for them. I just want to keep the mods I use on my computer only and use them in my game only and not have the mods affect the Steam account at all because of the risk of getting malware but I'm not sure that's possible because I'm using that Steam account to play the game in the first place.
By the way I am using the Vortex Mod Manager, if that's important, and I haven't started using any mods in the game yet and I am planning to use a race mod and combat enhancement mods.
Please give me very detailed answers to all my questions because I am confused about what to do about those things.
