Installing mods for your Vintage Story server

To download mods for your server you'll want to go to Vintage Story mod selection on their site. When connecting to a Vintage Story modded server, Vintage Story will automatically ask if it can download the necessary mods needed for the server.

Adding mods to your server.

  1. Download the mods that you want to install. For compatibility, they need to be the same Vintage story version as your server. For example, if your server is 1.18.0 the mod must also be 1.18.0. The mods will be a .zip folder, do not extract the contents.
  2. Log into your server though SFTP.
  3. Navigate to the mods folder in your SFTP client/vintage-story/Mods
  4. Upload your mods (one at a time, repeating these instructions as necessary) into the mods folders. The mod’s installation instructions should specify the folder(s) to place them into if they are different.
  5. Log into Command Center. From the server list, find the server you want to install mods to and click the Manage button on the right.
  6. When you’re ready, restart your server.
