Mod Installation

As a friendly reminder, we encourage all our users to completely stop the server before doing any modification to the files or settings, otherwise this can lead to data corruption or desynchronization in your server's data.

After locally downloading and unpacking the desired mod, it is necessary to create a folder on the server.

This can be done either using the web interface, or via FTP.

A new folder must be created by clicking on "New directory".


The new directory must be named "Mods" so that the game correctly recognizes the folder, and it’s content.


The mod files can be copied into the newly created directory.


It is recommended to do this with an FTP program such as FileZilla or WinSCP.

Most mods come with instructions on how to install them, please follow them!

Mods will be active after a correct installation and a server restart.
