Medieval Engineers | How to Add Mods

Updated 4th Febuary 2019

1. Stop your server
2. Follow steps 1-5 here to open your worlds sandbox.sbc file
3. Find a mod that you want on the workshop (eg. https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=440847161)
4. copy the number at the end (for the example it would be 440847161)
5. Open your worlds sandbox.sbc file and find '<Mods />
it should look like this:

<Mods />

6. Change it so that it looks like this (minus the square brackets):

<Mods>
    <Mod>
        <Name>[number from step 3].sbm</Name>
        <PublishedFileId>[number from step 3]</PublishedFileId>
    </Mod>
</Mods>

For more than 1 mod it should look like this (Again minus the square brackets)

<Mods>
    <Mod>
        <Name>[number from step 3].sbm</Name>
        <PublishedFileId>[number from step 2]</PublishedFileId>
    </Mod>
    <Mod>
        <Name>[number from step 3].sbm</Name>
        <PublishedFileId>[number from step 3]</PublishedFileId>
    </Mod>
</Mods>
 

If you have done it correctly the mods will load up and your Sandbox.sbc file should look somthing like this

<Mods>
<Mod>
        <Name>294555339.sbm</Name>
        <PublishedFileId>294555339</PublishedFileId>
    </Mod>
    <Mod>
        <Name>294534489.sbm</Name>
        <PublishedFileId>294534489</PublishedFileId>
    </Mod>
    <Mod>
        <Name>294617824.sbm</Name>
        <PublishedFileId>294617824</PublishedFileId>
    </Mod>
    <Mod>
        <Name>295393216.sbm</Name>
        <PublishedFileId>295393216</PublishedFileId>
    </Mod>
    <Mod>
        <Name>297207615.sbm</Name>
        <PublishedFileId>297207615</PublishedFileId>
    </Mod>
    <Mod>
        <Name>294621451.sbm</Name>
        <PublishedFileId>294621451</PublishedFileId>
    </Mod>
    <Mod>
        <Name>296437598.sbm</Name>
        <PublishedFileId>296437598</PublishedFileId>
    </Mod>
</Mods>

7. In the main server config (Game panel > Configuration files > MedievalEngineers-Dedicated.cfg) make sure the world where you just edited the sandbox.sbc is set as persistant or the mods will dissapear
8. Start the server

NOTE: If you have copied the mods list from your game on your PC make sure to remove this line from each entry <ModItem FriendlyName="">

Troubleshooting Steps

So you have just set up all the mods you wanted but now you cant connect to your server? Just follow this guide

1. Have you waited long enough? To download the mods from the workshop, unpack them and add them into your server can take a few minutes.
2. Are you sure you have formatted them properly? Even a single missing [ will stop is from working
3. Are all the mods you have added in date/still working/public?
4. Finally remove all the mods and add them one by one to see which one is stopping it
