How to add mods to your sever

Note: The process for running mods outside single player is very crude and manual right now. The developers will make the process simpler in the future and hopefully add support for automatic download of mods when you join a server.

Installing Mods on your client
The easiest way to install mods is to subscribe to them on the Steam Workshop. Once they are downloaded you can find them in the "Mods" menu from the Main Menu in game. You can also use mods that you get outside of the Steam Workshop - put the mod .pak file in "<SteamLibrary>\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Mods" and it will be available in the in-game mods menu.

Note: You have to restart the game before changes to the selected mod list has any effect. The ingame gui doesn't make this very clear right now.

Client side:
To join a server with mods, you must first have the same mods the server is running, with the same load order. When joining a server, you will get a message box telling you which mods you are missing. You cannot connect to the server unless you have those mods installed and activated.

Server side:
To start a server with mods you put the mod files (<mod name>.pak) in "/ConanSandbox/Mods/" and add the mods to modlist.txt with the file names of those *.pak files, one per line like this:


You can edit modlist.txt from Configration Files on our control panel.

The easiest way to upload the *.pak files is to go to the File Manager on our control panel, browse to /ConanSandbox/Mods/, click on upload and select the file from your local computer. (<SteamLibrary>\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Mods)
