    Install Mods

    To install an absolute mod, unzip it into the Mods folder in the game folder. Make sure each mod has its own ending subfolder with no number. For the post, if you have the PineapplesEverywhere mod, the families should have this assembly file:

    Stardew Valley/
     Pineapples Pineapple everywhere. dll

  • If you have multiple mods together, you can organize them into subfolders. SMAPI automatically searches each folder until it finds only one file.

    Stardew Valley/
          fruit modifications/
             pineapples everywhere/
             Apples are divided /
     null ApplesNowhere.dll
              manifest .json
  • To disable a folder, simply put a dot in front of the user’s folder (for example, Name.mods disabled). If Windows doesn’t allow it, also put a dot at the end and leave them (for example, .disabled mods.).
  • Load the mods into a folder other than Mods, unzip them there, and then move the folders directly into the Mods folder. This helps avoid extra file errors.
  • If you have a file like PineapplesEverywhere-1234567890, check the mod’s actual folder. These folders most often contain folders and selected readme files.
