Confusion surrounding new(ish) features

by cookiemonsta » Post

Just to begin, I'm not 100% sure this is the right place to post this, but:

Since 0.4.8 there's been the "mods" tab on the main menu. Please. how do you enable mods? And the "texture packs" tab, how can you enable texture packs and do you put texture packs for mods in the texture pack folder now or in the actual mod's folder like before.

Thanks in advance,
cookiemonsta

You enable mods with the configure tab under the singleplayer tab of the main menu.

The mods tab shows the mods you've installed and those you can install that way (an alternative of downloading them from the forum and putting them in your mods folder).

The texture pack, idk, just noticed it for the first time when you mentioned it.

Thanks for the help! :D

To enable mods, click the world you want to enable them for, then click "Configure", then click the mod you want to enable and check the "enabled" box. When you have finished, click "save".

To enable texture packs, put them in the "textures" folder (there should be a file called "texture_packs_here.txt" and a folder called "base" in it). Then, click the "Texture Packs" tab, and select the texture pack you want (note: there is no "enable" or similar button, just make sure the texture pack is highlighted in green). On starting the actual game, type "/mods" (without quotes), and you should see the mods you enabled for that world there.

For texture packs for mods, I would assume that you just need to make sure the textures for it are in the same texture pack as the one you selected.

The "Mods" tab is for downloading mods directly from Minetest, and any you download will still need to be enabed in the "Configure" menu.

Thankyou very much. :)
