Add instructions for mod manual installation
A '''mod''' (short for ''modification'') is an alteration of the game. There's a large variety of mods, everything from small tweaks to total conversions.
Mods can be downloaded and installed manually from [http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?682-Crusader-Kings-II-User-Modifications User Modifications sub-forum] (game registration needed), or automatically from [[Steam Workshop]]. This page is intended as a list of biggest most popular [[Crusader Kings II]] mods and tools, and what version they work with.
Alternate lists of mods are available on:
*[[forum:847776|User Mod Index thread]]
 
==Installation==
 
Mods can be downloaded and installed manually from [http://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?682-Crusader-Kings-II-User-Modifications User Modifications sub-forum] (game registration needed), or automatically from [[Steam Workshop]].
 
The mod installation folder is:
* Windows: ~\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Crusader Kings II\mod\
* Linux: ~/.paradoxinteractive/Crusader Kings II/mod/
* OSX: {{sup}}
 
Never install mods in Steam directory (ex: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Crusader Kings II\mod), as mod would not be properly loaded.
 
Check in the mod description the CK2 version compatible with the version of the mod. If needed, rollback to an older [[patch]], using Steam Beta tab.<ref>https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/how-to-rollback-your-version-of-ck2-to-a-previous-one.764752/</ref>
 
In case of manual installation, the steps are usually the following (refer to specific mod instructions, if any):
 
#Remove any existing installation of the mod (mod folder and .mod file). This is very important, as the game loads all files present in mod folder, so old mod files that are no longer present or were renamed in a new version of the mod would conflict.
#Clear your gfx cache, by deleting the folder ''~\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Crusader Kings II\<mod_name>\gfx'', if any.
#Extract the downloaded archive, so that CK2 mod folder contains the .mod file and directory of the mod.
#Launch CK2 and select the mod in the Mod tab. Note that the mod may have a different name in the launcher than the name of the .mod file.
#Play!
