Player Made Mods

From Istaria Lexica

Below is a list of game modifications and tools. These are created by players and may not be absolutely compatible to the game. If you encounter any problems your best bet is to contact the authors or other players on the official community boards. Each article below contains detailed information about the authors, as far as they are known.

Another good resource for mods is

If you know of any missing modifications, feel free to leave a comment in the talk page, or contact an administrator.

Please be aware on what you do[edit]

Alot of mods are not compatible to each other. That is because some of the files you install may have been installed by another mod prior.

Here are some basic hints for installation:

  • Mods are installed in the resources_override directory, never the resources folder.
    • Background: on patch day, the istaria launcher will replace all manipulated files located in resources, but not in resources_override.
  • Watch what you're copying!
    • Some of the downloadable zip files come with erroreous folder structures.
    • Refer to the mod article on Istaria Lexica for hints, or the official resource linked on our article.
    • If Windows asks if you want to overwrite a file it is better to stop here and compare the source and destination file.
    • Incase those files do not match, an existing mod conflicts with yours. You must merge them to be able to use both mods.
    • Merging is sometimes complicated, you will want to ask for help on the official community board or your preferred personal game-modder. :-)
  • Some of the mods are very, very old (back to 2004!). Since the game client structure has changed in all those years they may not work as expected.
  • Some of the older mods may have become obsolete, because they were added into the official client inbetween. If you encounter these, let us know it! Contact an administrator or leave a text on the talk page!
