With the introduction of Alpha 17 experimental, the concept of a modlet was introduced. Modlets are smaller mods that don't over-write the vanilla XML files, but are loaded from the Mods folder.

A typical modlet would have the following format.


Not all modlets will have the different folders; it really depends on what the modlet does. For example, a XUI modlet wouldn't necessarily have an ItemIcons or Resources.

However, all modlets will have a ModInfo.xml

Modlets are installed the same on Client as they are on a Server.

1) Create a folder called "Mods" at the top level of the game folder.[edit | edit source]

Client Folder
Server Folder

2) Download the modlets you want.[edit | edit source]

3) Extract the modlet, and look for the ModInfo.xml for each mod you want. Once you find that, copy the folder into the Mods/ folder.[edit | edit source]

Do not copy the contents of the folder, but rather the folder that has the ModInfo.xml

In the above example for the SphereII_PG13 modlet, we would copy the SphereII_PG13 into the Mods folder.

4) Start[edit | edit source]

You can review the output_log.txt to confirm which ones are loaded.
