As of Beta 1.9, you should be able to simply download a mod from your favorite mod site, and drop the .ZIP or .DAZIP file into DAModder and install it. No manual packaging or changing anything around. Just download, drag and drop, and boom.

If you run into any mods that do not properly install in this manner, please post the name of the mod here as well as the link you downloaded it from, so that I can look at it and see why that mod did not work.

Also if you run into any mods that do install properly but for some reason do not uninstall properly, please again post the name and link of the mod here.

Please post both the name of the mod and the link you downloaded it from. Please specify if the problem is with installing, uninstalling, or both.

    Known Issues

    • Only mods packaged as .DAZIP or .ZIP are supported. Mods packaged as .RAR or .7zip are not, and will not, be supported. Sorry. Ask the author to use ZIP!
    • Mods that have multiple "versions" will not install properly. DAModder may try and install the first version it finds, or may not do anything. It depends. These types of mods will eventually be supported in the sub-packaging system in a later version.

    Is a core override mod in a rar package, even when unpacked cant be installed with damodder, its just incompatible in the provided form, and it relies onto 3 other mods to work, actually it is just a replacement file for the 3 other mods to work together.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Is that the reports like you want to have it or shouldnt i report those incompatible core override mods?
    I know its a known issue, just dont know if you want such mods reported?

    If you can extract the file, and then install it fine then that's ok. Such as with the DLC Merchandise.

    If you extract the file and it still won't install, that is an issue. However I should say its a known issue at the moment. I'll work on that one next.

    Mods packaged in RAR or 7Z packages should now be installable by unpackaging them manually then dragging the folder onto DAModder.

    I personally didnt try this one, but i am quite sure its not "plug and play" compatible with damodder, it has several downloads/options and i think they are 7zips, so there is a manual installation necessary. Its also the biggest mod i found. I guess when its correctly assembled in a propper directory with all files you want you could install it with damodder.

    Is a core override mod in a zip package with multiple directories/options, its not "plug and play" compatible with damodder, If setup correctly within a folder with the files the user wants it can be installed with damodder.

    Ok nice, but these are all mods that you wouldn't expect to be compatible due to the way they are set up.

    anything that has multiple parts or versions, isn't going to work until sub packaging is in. An EXE obviously isn't going to work, since its not a mod.

    i am aware of that john, i just mention everything that cant be installed or makes problems now for reference, its not meant in a bad way.
    Maybe we can discover things that need fixing/need to be adapted when we are aware of these mods. thats why i am listing them.
