Assuming the file you downloaded is called, unzip all the files into: ~\Documents\This War of Mine\Mods

Rename all the extracted files to the following filenumber + _ + filename. As an example, assume had a file called common.dat, rename common.dat to 1234567_common.dat.

There is a file in ~\Documents\This War of Mine\Mods called Mods.list. Add the following line to it: 1234567|GreatMod|Description|enabled|local

Voila, your mod should appear in game

Here is a picture of the file structure:

Hope this helps!

level 1 · 2ySo instead of downloading a mod, I made my own mod using Storyteller.exe. I renamed all the dat files inside the mod folder and did as you have said and its still not working. I was hoping if you can be more specific on these files.

For instance I've made my own mod and repacked them giving me a folder with a random generated name (3e4g....) with 3e4g... .dat so I named those 2 dat files into 0001_3e4g.... and 0002_3e4g.... and types into the form

(forgot to mention inside storyteller.exe I named the mod Inventory Expander)

0001|Inventory Expander|No Description|enabled|local

and same with the other file

and both didn't work

Can you please make a tutorial on that please

It would be really helpful

level 1 · 2ySo, I'm on the Epic launcher, not Steam, and this interests me.

The website you mentioned has a very limited number of mods in it. Also, when I click on "download" it takes me to another website asking me to login/signup. How many places are we supposed to sign up? smods? or that other website? Also,, doesn't really have many mods. I counted around 5, at best. Suggestions? Pointers? I'm interested in mods like more loot, improved crafting, etc., etc., to make the game less grindy.

I personally did not have to sign up anywhere. After clicking download, it should take you to Afterwards, you click on `Free Download`, then on `Download File`.

Hope that helps.

Doesn't work for me. I see the mods in the game with check marks next to them but on the right it says "Status Not loaded". And I don't see them in the storyteller.exe when I start it.

What am I doing wrong?

At first, I had the _common files situated in the unzipped downloaded mod folder, wich was inside: (Documents\This War of Mine\Mods).

So, there where 2 folders*. The first one to place the* downloaded mod (literally comes with the game), and the other one that IS the mod.

2) I renamed the _common files with the (in my case) "1355265191" mod number, and added to the mods.list file: 1355265191|Stacking|Nodescription|enabled|local like the tutorial said. Example (for me):




3) But when I entered the game, it said that the mod was enabled but not loaded. So here’s the solution:

The unzipped Mod being inside a folder was the problem. The _common files have to be loose inside "Documents\This War of Mine\Mods", not contained in a folder.

5) Erase the unzipped mod folder that contained the _common files. In my case was "1355265191 Better Stacking Items".

6) The Mods.list file remains the same: 1355265191|Stacking|Nodescription|enabled|local
