No, it isn't, unless you don't load the plugin yourself from a plugin which again lies in Cinema 4D's plugin directory.

You should be able to do this using an Environment Variable set up.
Did this long ago for a while but its very "global" (All Cinema versions see
this link)

well from what i've seen (what i understand) is that you have changed environment variables to force cinema4d to look at the folder u want ...but that's not exactly what i want (as i want my plugin to be shipped and don't know if it will be possible to change other ppl environment variables in windows)

what I (imagined) to be possible is to:
1-make the main plugin file .cdl/.cdl64 inside cinema4d plugins folder
2-make a part in that main plugin file to refer to a custom path of another precompiled plugin file (another .cdl/.cdl64) -_- like loading plugin from another plugin (if this is possible)

1. Load the library (using the OS API)
2. Redirect PluginStart(), PluginMessage() and PluginEnd() to it.

Best,
