    I download a mod, and get a plain .rar file, so I throw it into my mods folder and it doesn't load, doesn't work. Is there any thing I might be doing wrong, Something else im' suppost to do? Please help, thanks!
  2. You have to extract it....
    You should have a folder with a .modinfo file inside and a bunch of files as the final product

    A RAR file is a compressed folder much like a ZIP file. You have to use a program like WinRAR to uncompress the folder. And put the contents into the folder into your mod directory. It'll look like this when you're done: "..mods\PARTICULARMODFOLDERNAME\" and all the files go in there. Alternatively, the RAR could contain a .modpak file. In that case, put that file into the main "..mods\" folder. Have a good one!
