    I am trying to get the kineptic race mod and it is downloaded as a zip so I extract it and then a file folder comes out but when I go in the file folder there isn't the metadata isn't there so I look in the second folder that is inside and it isnt there either is it possible that it is in one of the mod folders?

    Ok I did everything like this thing said but it won't activate the mod. Like I can view the mod and it says yup there's a mod in your mod folder even in the actual mod menu of starbound but it won't load the mod. Or at least nothing has changed like the mod said it would.

    So do I Download it, then open the Starbound Mod Loader and then press select, after that I find my file that was in downloads and then put that file into the starbounds mod folder with my other 2 mods that will not load and then allow that to upload to steam and then play the normal starbound?

    Don't add any extra steps - what ever is written only follow.
    If you have further doubts ask the mod author as they may have extra instructions.

    i have no .metadata file and/or when i simply put my .pak mod in the file it crashed everytime i opened starbound

    If it crashes - it is likely that mod is out of date.

    The mod im trying to use has a _metadata file, does that do anything?

    That is just a mod metadata information file, it does something but is unlikely to be problematic.

    rar file is just like a zip
    You have to extract it.

    If you need a free extractor use 7zip
