Modding on Servers[edit]

Undocumented feature


Place a ModConfig.xml in the serverfiles root (next to executable).

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<ModConfig xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="">

Assign a number to each entry you want to add.
Numbers seem to default to 4 digits for mods when generated by the client,
so try and keep the same structure in the server to prevent complications.
1 is core file and always need to be enabled

Storing Mods[edit]

WIN: C:\Users\USERNAME_HERE\Documents\My Games\Stationeers\mods\
LIN: /home/USERNAME_HERE/My Games/Stationeers/mods/
OSX: /Users/USERNAME_HERE/My Games/Stationeers/mods/

\Modname or workshopid\About\

(file containing description about mod and thumbnail)

\Modname or workshopid\GameData\

(files you want to append to the core gamedata)

It's recommended to only put entries in the mod files you want to add or replace,
do not try and replace the whole file for compatibility issues and errors.

There are some examples of how to make your own mods in:
