Thanks, this is great, very very useful.
Are you going to add more features?? i sugest you add "-datapath" to use with mods that aren't in .big.

i know that, but it's just for the mod in the standard data folder, what i mean is like in my case were i have one wip mod in data/ and other wip mod in dataGC/ for example.
Using "-datapath" we can have multiple mods that aren't in .big .

if you want its possible to define that in custom parameters, just do it like you would with a shortcut
