Hi everyone,

To run the tool, you need to execute file vintage_story_mod_downloader.exe  in /dist directory.


  1. During first run, you have to provide ABSOLUTE path to your mods' directory.
    (for ex. C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\VintagestoryData\Mods, paste path to program using right mouse button)
  2. Then just choose if you want to search mods by manual search (y) or rather let the tool do the job for you and search according to mods' directory content (n).
  3. Any downloaded files will appear in /dist/output directory.
  4. If you want to update your current mods' directory just copy files from /dist/output and use them to replace old ones in your mod directory. 

I hope this tool will save you some time. Feel free to look through the code and modify it by yourself. 

Best regards:

Thank you for your review, I'm glad to hear you liked it. About copying this tool to mod's folder, actually you don't have to, just copy full path to your mod folder at first time tool is starting and asking you for mods directory. Then you can also manually add or modify it by pasting/changing mod's directory path in file modsdir.txt in tool's location.

NOTE: you have to put this in the mod's folder. else it just closes.

just tested it, i thought it will bring an UI and i would have to manually select what do i want to update but... it does not, at least not in automatic and IT'S AMAAAAAZING!!! :D i just let it run by itself and it's fantastic. the only thing someone may be concerned is the fact that sometimes it doesn't "find" the right mod BUT if it finds more than one "possibility" (for example i have visible terra pretta) it will ask for which one you want (in my case it was also the visible ores option), which, again, is AMAZING.

you should update a bit the description to tell people what does it do because at first sight it may not be interesting for everyone. i closed the tab and in the last second i re-opened it and i'm glad i did it :D
