AKI Mods Installer 1.2

Please do not ask when mod authors will update their mods to 3.9.0
Bothering mod authors will lead to warnings and repeat offenses will lead to eventual bans.

A simple little application that allows drag-and-dropping mods in zip formats.

Simple installation guide:

  • Download the app from the blue button next to the title.
  • Extract SPT Mods Installer.exe to any existing SPT-AKI folder (same place as SPT.Server.exe).
  • Run SPT Mods Installer.exe.
  • Drag and drop any compressed archives into the application (supported extensions: .rar, .zip, .7z).

  • Latest release has NOT been tested against all extensions. I've only tested .zip. It works fine.

    I have tested against several mods, and haven't had any issues. Let me know if y'all run into any!

  • Love the installer worked for all the mods I've been installing, they have been .zip and .7z files. Except for CUSTOM LAUNCHER BACKGROUNDS by Preytolive didn't install for whatever reason idk . Other than that one mod not installing nothing but good things to say about this installer!!

    • Because this isn't designed to be integrated into anything. It's a simple standalone installer. I make my own stuff because everyone has different needs.

      My installer has worked brilliantly for me since I updated it. I also am not a big fan of Mod organizer, but that's a me issue.

  • fair warning, not all mods are installed the same, some need extra plugins, some need you to actually READ the install guide on the modpage. Having a mod installer may just make people complain to mod authors about "how it doesnt work when I install it" so be prepared.

    • I'm very well aware. My responsibility falls short of people deciding to read, and the same issues will forever remain with my tool adding little more to it than "I installed it but no worky bro"

  • just a heads up, this triggers a Windows Defender "severe" alert associated with file "Wacatac.B!ml." could be a false positive.

    VirusTotal also reports a single security vendor is flagging this as malicious. also seems like a false positive.

    • Yes. Wacatac has been a very common false positive for me for the past... year or so.

      Check the VirusTotal result. I asked around with SPT staff, and I was told that the pinged one in the result is a false positive.

      Windows Defender will do a lot of alerts. A solid 90% of them are false positives, in my experience.

  • Does this work with every mod? I'm guessing the implementation is not the same for every mod.

    • Good question.

      This tool primarily works by the structure that the popular mods use, which is having BepInEx and user folders directly in the archive. This allows you to drag-and-drop the entire archive contents to install the mod.

      There is a backup method where it also searches for server mods specifically. I have not figured out how to deal with client mods dynamically yet.
