How do I load a mod?

Postby DanTheTerrible » Sun Feb 23, 2020 9:22 am

Sorry to ask a question that has certainly already been answered, but I have been poking around Stars in Shadow forums for an hour and can't figure out how to load a couple of mods I am interested in. I'm confident I just haven't looked in the right place, but please have pity on me and any lurkers wondering the same thing. I am particularly interested in Siyoa's UI improvement mod and harpy eagle's improvement to Siyoa's population panel. Can someone please give fairly detailed "explain like I'm five" style instructions how to load these mods? And hopefully a board moderator can sticky the post to the top of the mod board so it doesn't get buried?

Basically you just unpack the mod into the "Mods" directory.

So using PopReport as an example, you would end up with
\steamapps\common\Stars in Shadow\Mods\PopReport\

And that contains the subfolders Drawers and GUI

Thanks! I'll try that now.

Edit: I got harpy eagle's population panel to work. I seem to be stuck on Siyoa's fleet cargo icon thing, my computer doesn't know what to do with his .7z file type.
