How To: Install and Use Mods


Recommended Posts

Hello, I have a problem installing mods in GoG's Linux build and couldn't find something about it anywhere.


I've got this:



And found this:

Steam/Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\dont_starve\mods\
Standalone/Windows: C:\Program Files\dontstarve\mods
Standalone/Mac: /Applications/Don't Starve/Don't Starve.app/Contents/mods/
Steam/Linux: /home/username/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/dont_starve/mods

Nothing about GoG builds there, so I located:
but it doesn't have the games files and putting the mod anywhere in there doesn't work.


Help me, please.

Ok, I'd have never thought that it's installed outside of
but it actually is in


GoG/Linux 64bit: /root/opt/GOG Games/Dont Starve/game/dontstarve64/mods/

Maybe it can be implemented in this guide alongside the other GoG versions:


That's really odd. Having blank spaces instead of _ is quite unclean too, I wonder why they chose such a path.


Anyway, it works now, the mod "Compromising Survival" should be delivered with the game and unlocked with a cheat code or something like that, a lot of people seem to only play it with this. I died a few dozen times and survived some weeks in permadeath before being fed up to die instantly every time I discover something new (which happens quite a lot with all the content in the game), so this mod actually makes me play it again..
