    This is a notice regarding recent upgrades to the Hub. Over the last month, we have added several new features to improve your experience.
    You can check out the details in our official announcement!
VAR Manager

Other VAR Manager

  Admin warning: this resource contains an exe and could contain malicious code. Users accept all risks associated with using this resource
Are you a .var hoarder? Does VAM take several seconds to load any menu because you have 4000 .vars? Well do I have the solution for you!
VAR Manager allows you to quickly backup files that you don't want/need at the moment, making VAM much snappier to navigate.

Built with .NET 7.0, You need the .NET 7.0 Desktop Runtime
You can grab it here: https://dotnet.microsoft.com/en-us/download/dotnet/7.0
Direct link to 64-bit: https://dotnet.microsoft.com/en-us/...u/runtime-desktop-7.0.2-windows-x64-installer

This is open source, link to github repository: https://github.com/bill-prime/VAMvarmanager
I build free stuff for VAM Community, if feel like buying me a coffee here you go: https://www.buymeacoffee.com/billprime

WHAT DOES THIS DO?

  • Moves your .var files between active VAM Addonpackages folder and a specified backup location.
  • Has various functions to move specific files including:
    • Move Old Versions of vars (Unreferenced)
      • Moves old versions of vars that are not needed, keeping only the latest version in the AddonPackages folder.
      • Moves these files to a new folder in the VAM root folder called _oldvars
    • Move All Unreferenced .vars
      • Scans files for dependencies, does not move any files that are referenced in any .var
    • Move All Unreferenced .vars of Specific Types
      • Same as above, with additional filter to only move .vars containing specific type(s) of content
    • Move All .vars of Specific Types
      • Same as above, but without check for dependencies
    • Restore Needed .vars
      • Restore .vars from backup location that are referenced in VAM dependencies
    • Restore Specific .vars
      • Restore all .vars containing content of the specified type(s)
    • Restore All .vars
  • Filters available (default on) to EXCLUDE moving .vars from specified creators or folders within the AddonPackages folder.
  • Configuration of folders/filters is saved automatically for re-use when re-opening the app.
  • Takes a few seconds to do operations depending on how many .vars you have, though still faster than VAM loading up.
  • Ability to save/restore var configurations to quickly move hundreds of vars
  • Function to disable preloadMorphs on all packages.
  • Skip Favorites to skip backing up any vars with Favorites set
  • Date Filter to only backup older vars.
  • Undo: Saves last config before each operation, quickly undo changes with Undo button.
  • DOES NOT modify/extract .var files in any way.
USE CASES
  • I want to create a new look but don't want VAM to be slow while I am navigating skins/textures/morphs.
    • Option 1: Backup all unreferenced .vars
    • Option 2: Backup all .vars containing scenes, restore all .vars containing Skins/Textures/Morphs/Plugins etc.
  • I want to build some clothing presets but I don't want VAM to be slow.
    • Step 1: Backup Unreferenced .vars
    • Step 2: Restore all Clothing-type .vars
  • I want to try out an amazing new scene from SlamT but I don't want VAM to be slow.
    • Backup all unreferenced .vars with exception of creator = SlamT
  • I grabbed some new .vars from the HUB/wherever but now I have some reference errors.
    • Step 1: Restore All Referenced vars from backup location (to check if you already have them).
    • Step 2: Use VAM to download additional missing vars.
  • I want to keep my current var config but want to temporarily restore all clothing!
    • Step 1: Save var Config file (which can be later restored).
    • Step 2: Restore all clothing.

    • Use Duplicate Item Resolver to hide the duplicates

This is a godsend! Went down from 8k VARs to 2.5k and VaM no longer takes 15 minutes to start >_<
