Conan Exiles | How to Add Mods

In this guide we will be covering the process of installing and updating mods on your Conan Exiles server using our Steam Workshop installer.

 

Helpful tip: if you want to install all of your mods at once, put them all into a Steam Workshop Collection.

Follow the steps in this guide (https://pingperfect.com/index.php/knowledgebase/666/Creating-a-Steam-Workshop-Collection.html) if you're unsure how to do that.

 


Steam Workshop Buttons

In your gamepanel you will see three buttons, Steam Workshop, Steam Workshop (installed) and Steam Workshop (updates). Each of these buttons allow you to have full control over the mods installed on your server, in the next section we will cover what each of these buttons do.

Steam Workshop
Install new mods to your server. Gives you the ability to sort results by popularity over a time period, filter by content type in addition to a search box.

Steam Workshop (installed)
Shows you the mods you have installed on your server. Mods can also be uninstalled from within this window.

Steam Workshop (updates)
Update your installed mods. Allows you to update all your installed mods with the click of a button. This can also be configured to be automatically executed which we will cover at the end of this guide.


Adding Mods to your Server

With the addition of our new and improved Steam Workshop installers, adding mods to your server is as easy as ever. To help you get started we will walk you through all the steps needed to get mods installed and enabled on your server.

  1. In your game panel, press the Steam Workshop button. A new window will appear where you can begin searching for a mod you would like to install on your server. To install a mod, you will just need to press the green Install button.

    A new window will appear displaying the status of the installation process, once this is complete it will automatically close and return you back to the Steam Workshop page.
  2. Restart your server and the mods should now be added.
