    I have MAC and I dont understand what to do. I installed https://community.playstarbound.com/resources/human-beards-and-accessories.3829/ this mod. Somewhere i read that you need to do next - Go > Go to folder > ~/Library/Application\ Support/Steam/SteamApps/common/Starbound . Or something like that (My main language is Russian, sorry). But my MAC says that this folder do not exist. And when i extracted that file i got a folder. In this tutorial, tho, you didn't say what I suppose to do with folder with no PAK file...

    okay, I understood that you need to copy those two files into folder 'mods'... Last trouble is that i dont know how to find that folder

    Why you want to do that? If you subscribed to that mod from steam, then you don't need to do anything else.

    But there is no such mod in steam

    Oh, I was missunderstanding what are you trying to do, sorry.

    To found the "mod" folder (where you should put any pack file), you should Open Steam > Library > Right Click on Starbound > Properties > Local Files > Watch Local Files (or something like that).

    That will open the main directory of starbound, where you can find the "Mods" folder.

    Hello, and excuse me but i have a problem with a mod, the spawn object though but they are invisible. Should you drag the folders as "item" and "stats" in files other than metadata ?

    The problem is that the folders are .rar files. they can't seem to be opened on my mac so I assume thats the same problem. I also don't get any trace of pak/rar files in starbound.

    okay, I've been trying this for like 2 hours now...
    I have a mac, downloaded the Skath Race mod but it's not working, it is already placed in the mods folder.
    but the .metadata is missing
    also I dont have the option of using the launch mod uploader tool when starting the game, I don't have that option...
    really desperate and I have no idea what to do anymore...anyone got an idea?

    "Eeveefuelhatch" from the mod Eevee 1.3 seems to be broken. That is your issue.

    Someone should update this cause the images are just a small rectangle with an red x in a corner for me. Luckily i just tried dropping the unpacked Rar/zip file in the mods folder and it seemed to have worked.

    I have a few mods, when I try to use the Avali mod, my starbound crashes
    You said something about the .metadata file
    well, this mod has more then just two files before the metadata, what do I do?

    take the second Avali-triage folder and move it to the mods folder WITHOUT the first folder.

    Since you still have it in downloads:
    go to downloads and open the FIRST Avali-triage folder
    Copy/Move the Avali-triage folder (found within the one you just opened) to the mods folder within your Starbound install
    You're done

    Just curious, Why do you not use Windows 10?
