    " if its a folder mod , just drag the folder in same folder (mod)"

    Maybe iam just dumb but i cant find the .pak files in mod folders,i get a MODINFO file saying pak tho. Iam not sure if i extracted the mods correctly or something

    If you are getting any modinfo files, then it's extremely likely that the mod you are attempting to install is well out of date and shouldn't be installed regardless.

    Thats concerning , the strange part is i downloaded them after they updated for 1.0

    The mod author is likely not aware of 1.0 changes.
    You should inform them.

    How do you unpack the assets in 1.0? I've been having trouble with doing and I'd like to look inside the assets to see how they work.

    The method of unpacking has not changed.
    If you are having trouble doing it the manual way - you can try one of the community tools.

    Excuse me? In either of your choices, you are free from blame even though, speaking from experience, roughly 99% of mod installation issues are the direct result of user error. Perhaps you glossed over something important? Perhaps the Elithian Races Mod page (aka Avikan race mod) says something along the lines of:

    ...and you ignored that?


    Not every mod in the mod repository is compatibile withthe current version of Starbound. It's a general rule that any mod which was last updated a long time before the current version of the game should not be considered outright compatible with the game - there are some exceptions but that is true 98% of the time.

    Maybe the mod version and your SB version dont match , do you have a link for the mod ?

    I in my commons bin I only see Team Fortress 2 (the game I play most). Am I doing something wrong?

    All I can find in my common folder is Team Fortress 2. Am I doing something wrong?

    I try to install the Frackin' Music addon:
    I downloaded the .zip from Github, unzipped it, but in that zip there is several files and folders.
    So, I have to manually make a folder inside my mod folder, and put those files and folders inside the created folder? Am I right?
