Tips and tricks

  • Mods may need to be updated after maintenance. Maintenance is announced in the Discord #announcement-channel.
  • Never update mods in the ModHub or from any other place than the FSN Dropbox. The mods have been modified to work in FSN, downloading or upgrading them from anywhere else will mean that you will not be able to access the servers
  • Have 2 different mod folders, 1 for FSN and 1 for your single player saves or other multiplayer games
  • When downloading FSN mods, delete old versions from your download folder, or preferably download them into an empty folder. If you have downloaded a mod named “” before you joined FSN, and then download an FSN mod with the same filename, but modified to work with FSN, Windows will rename the FSN mod to “FS19_mod(1).zip”. As the server is looking for the file called “”, it will tell you that you are missing the mod, and you will not be able to join the server.
