Extract

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

Install

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.

Windows

Version 0.4

Simply place the mod into your mintest mod directory.

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

minetest-base-directory/mods/minetest/

For Version 0.4.dev-20120322:

minetest-base-directory/mods/mesetint/

Linux

Version 0.4

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

~/.minetest/usermods/

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

~/.minetest/mods/minetest/

If you use RUN_IN_PLACE enabled your mods folder is:

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