You have the Steam version of Don't Starve and you clicked on subscribe and then went to the mods menu and that mod didn't show up in the list?

Hi. I'm having the same problem, but only on Linux version. I have a dual boot machine and the Linux version doesn't show me the mods I subscribed on Steam (they appear normally on Windows version in the same machine). When I enter the Mods area, I receive a message "Verifying mod details...", then another one informing that the mods are being downloaded (these messages appear every time I enter there), but nothing happens. Here is a shot of the screen after the messages:

And the mods were downloaded. When I enter "~/.local/share/Steam/SteamApps/common/dont_starve/mods/" I can see them all. Is there any problem with Linux version? I don't have any problem playing the game, only with mods.

I did not know that there were "versions" of the game.Is there a way for us to get mods as files from the workshop instead of as direct downloads into the game?

 

Could I ask for clarification? Are you playing Don't Starve through the standalone game client or through Steam?

Standalone, and that's the problem. I didn't know about the Steam nonSteam bit when I bought and want to know if I can get Steam mods on nonSteam Don't Starve. 

 

Ah thanks for clarifying that for me. The only way to download and install mods for the standalone version is to get them from the downloads section of the Klei forums. Here's a handy how-to for installing mods from the Klei forums.

 

If the mod is only available on Steam and not on the Klei forums, you may have to contact the mod creator and ask if he or she can put it on our forums.

Thank you for the help. I know how to get mods from the forum already, and have even begun construction of one rather amateur mod. I suppose I will just have to hope more modders mod for standalone.

Honestly, I'm not sure why they don't, assuming they know of its existence. It's not difficult at all to upload here.
