Installing mods is extremely simple.

Contents

Extract

Use your favorite extraction program such as 7Zip or WinRar to extract the mod files from their respective download location.

Install

As of the latest dev builds (0.4.dev-20120326-b9b56ba onwards); simply move the mod files to the

/mods/minetest/

directory in your minetest folder.

Each mod should have it's own folder within the default mod folder.

So for example:

/mods/minetest/MODHERE/.

Windows

Place the mod into your mintest mod directory.

For Version 0.4.dev-20120326-b9b56ba and newer:

/mods/minetest/

For Version 0.4.dev-20120320:

/mods/mesetint/

For Version 0.4.dev-20120318 (must be created):

/user/server/addons/mesetint/mods/

For Version 0.4.dev-20120122-1 through Version 0.4.dev-20111129-2:

/data/mods/

Linux

RUN_IN_PLACE Disabled

If you installed the game from repository from your Linux dist, then you need to add the mods in:
(~ = homefolder) And only works when you have the setting: RUN_IN_PLACE=0 (disabled)

~/.minetest/mods/minetest/

If your minetest is a system-wide installed version on Linux your folder is something like one of the following (create if needed)

For Version 0.4.dev-20120326-b9b56ba and newer:

~/.minetest/mods/minetest/

For Version 0.4.dev-20120320:

~/.minetest/mods/mesetint/

For Version 0.4.dev-20120318 (must be created):

~/.minetest/server/addons/mesetint/mods.

For Version 0.4.dev-20120122-1 through Version 0.4.dev-20111129-2:

~/.minetest/data/mods/


RUN_IN_PLACE Enabled

If you use RUN_IN_PLACE=1 (enabled) your mods folder is in your minetest base directory (the place the game is):

For Version 0.4.dev-20120326-b9b56ba and newer:

/mods/minetest/

For Version 0.4.dev-20120320:

/mods/mesetint/

For Version 0.4.dev-20120318 (must be created):

/user/server/addons/mesetint/mods/

For Version 0.4.dev-20120122-1 through Version 0.4.dev-20111129-2:

/data/mods/
