Don't Starve Together Mods FAQ

95 posts in this topic

Does anybody know if you can install mods in the Mac version of the game? If so, how do you go about it?

 

I don't have a Mac machine myself. I "made" a couple of mods for a friend of mine who does, though, and I'd like to gift them to her with the most crystal clear instructions possible.

 

Incidentally, is there anything I should do to the files to make them usable in Mac? Giant noob here.

@Kanedork, Modding is the same everywhere. The best way to do it on all platforms is with the Steam Workshop-- it makes it really easy, you just subscribe and then open the mods menu in-game to enable them (opening the menu will download updates for them in the future, so do it every so often).

 

@matthewserns1, You shouldn't need to touch that to use mods anymore.

The problem with that is that this is a personal favor and, quite honestly, too much of a hack job to upload publicly. The Workshop is exclusively public, right? This is another person's character with a bit of an adjustment to accommodate a medical condition, so...

 

I am very glad to hear it's possible, though.

@Kanedork, When you upload to the workshop you can set the visibility to friends-only. Otherwise, you can get the mod's folder and look up how to find the game files for Steam on your platform-- there's a mods folder in there, and just drop it inside and it should show up in the mods menu.

Aha! Thank you very much, I did not know this. Again, massive newb here. :-)

hello, I need help, I have tried everything to get these mods to work for hours now, even using the metod you showed, and the mods do show up in my sever mods (some without icons tho), but when I go to charcter select, they are not there, and I have hit apply, restarted the game, etc. but i can't get them to work for the life of me, I think it might have to do with windows ten? or maybe I am dumb as bricks and can't find the serch button half the time. thank you for your time!

@Kairi, which mod are you trying to use? It might be worth contacting the mod developer via the comments section on the mod's Workshop page.

@BUTTERSKY11 Check your log and try to fix it. Any changes to worldgen since then that would've messed up the mod are more syntactic than structural, so it should be a fairly simple process of "look at where it crashed, figure out why, and fix" until it works again.

@BUTTERSKY11 Documents/Klei/DoNotStarveTogether/client_log.txt. You may also get crashes later that happen only server-side, if you're doing a surface+caves world, which will be in (if this is the 3rd save slot) Documents/Klei/DoNotStarveTogether/Cluster_3/Master/server_log.txt (and also Cluster_3/Caves/server_log.txt).

Hi, I'm playing DST on a Mac (Steam), and I seem to be having issues with Mods, when I install them and go to the mods section, they appear, but there is no checkbox in order to activate them (unless I'm just blind) and I tried going into the game and the mod didn't seem to have activated.

@OskarDiLondra, welcome to the forums.

In the Mods menu only client mods can be enabled. Server mods for a particular world can be enabled in the Host Game menu, Mods tab.

What mods were you trying to enable? Maybe they were all server (server_only or all_client_require_mod) mods?
