Hi everyone, I´ve just installed North (pkm file in windata folder).
The Mods category in main menu is empty. I guess I need some help.
The game has been purchased from GOG.
Hello and welcome! It sounds as you did all right actually. Just unzip, move the pkm file to banished/windata, start the game and enable in mod list. It works with the GOG version of Banished. If it doesnot recogize it as mod, the file might be broken and downloading it again could help. I don’t know what else could be the cause and did not hear about this problem so far. You can also try another pkm file to check if it’s the file or a general problem.
Please let me know.
Thanks for your help. Did as you advised, didn´t work.
GOG doesn´t support mods, the question about an update to banished still waiting for their answer.
Also tried the 2 GB MegaMod, same problem.
I´m just a jinx, have to live with it.
I found a talk of people having the same problem with the GOG version and they solved it by moving the pkm to c:\gog games\banished\win64\WinData or c:\gog games\banished\win32\WinData. Seems there are more than one windata folders in your installation and you just have the mod in wrong place.
Then it would probably work with mods in win32/Windata. But instead of moving the mods there, I would use the x64 version and start the game with win64/Application-x64.exe. I guess your icon on desktop or in start menu is connected to win32 and that should be changed or you create a new icon to start Banished.
It seems to be a specific thing in GOG installations with separate folders. In Steam installation are both exe files in one folder using the same windata. I hope its helping and not just more confusing. :)
Updated the game and it works now. Thank you very much for all your help! Cheers!
