• A dialog will appear telling you where to place your mods.

 

There are 2 different folders for Rebellion mods, the released folder with version, and the developer folder with version.

Regular EXE access --> ...<Mod Path>\Mods-Rebellion vX.XX

C:\Documents\My Games\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\Mods-Rebellion v1.85

Developer EXE access --> ...<Mod Path>\Mods-Rebellion vX.XX Dev

C:\Documents\My Games\Ironclad Games\Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion\Mods-Rebellion v1.85 Dev

 

Sins Mods are very specific to version and expansion type.

vX.XX is the version of Rebellion. There may be multiple folders for different versions of each upgrade. Place the mod in the most current version folder only if the mod was made for that version. Older version folders or the mods in them are no longer used by the game.

 

Create a new directory here. The name of the directory will be the name of the mod. You must restart the game to see any new mods. You won’t have to restart the engine to change a mod, just to create a new one and have it appear in the list.

 

EnabledMods.txt

Use a text editor to manually add what Sins loads on start-up.
