FTL modding
Hey yo,

Does anyone playing modded ftl? If so, how do you do it? If I'm not mistaken the problem is that slipstream creator decided to name mod folder mods/ and of course we on linux cannot use "/" symbol in directory name so all I get is folder named "mods" instead of "mods/" and slipstream manager cannot find that folder. Is where a way to overcome this?

Slipstream was working just fine for me, there was no problem with the mods directory. I have not tried with AE, since there is so much new content I am not bored enough to mod yet.

When you press "open mods/" directory on slipstream does it open it? Cause mine don't.

Yes it opens. When you press that button it tells whatever DE you're running to show that directory. For me (using XFCE) it opens up in Thunar. The directory is just called "mods".

I guess it's just me when... Great

It should still work, just put your mods in the "mods" directory. For example, ~/Slipstream Mod Manager v1.4-Unix/mods/ - you can use whatever file manager you like, or command line.

I put them in, but no go, slipstream don't see any mods.
Erik Apr 21, 2014 @ 6:03am 
You put the .ftl files in there? They can't be zip'd or in subdirectories.
algiuz Apr 21, 2014 @ 6:11am 
Yes, .ftl file, but manager don't see them or open mods directory
algiuz Apr 21, 2014 @ 6:14am 
Wait, do slipstream directory havet to be at home folder?
Erik Apr 21, 2014 @ 6:20am 
No, mine is in ~/FTLMods/Slipstream/

Same problem Like Algiuz.
I am on Ubuntu 12.4 and the button "Mods" don't open anything.

And the .ftl I drop in the Mods file from the mod manager aren't detected by the manager.

Vhati find a solution, Thank's for him.

Vhati commented 10 hours ago :
"This can happen if you're double-clicking the jar.
You should be clicking "modman.command" instead.

I've heard from some Ubuntu users that "modman.command" may not run when clicked. A workaround for that is to open a terminal, drag the file onto the terminal, and hit enter."

That work perfectly for me!
