Mod Page

Mator Created Sep 18 2016 - Updated Sep 19 2016 Mod picker

The mod page on Mod Picker is the page where information on a mod in the Mod Picker database is displayed. Note that no mods are actually hosted on Mod Picker, we simply provide listings for mods with links to legitimate download locations.

Header section

General information

The left part of the header section of the mod page displays the mod's reputation, title, and authors. You can click on the authors string to bring up a modal displaying all Mod Picker users who are authors, contributors, or curators of the mod.

Actions and status

The right part of the header contains actions and the mod's status. Actions include editing the mod, favoriting it, and adding it to your active mod list.

You will only see the edit button if you have permission to update the mod. Clicking the edit button takes you to the edit mod page for the mod you're viewing.

Favoriting a mod allows you to track when it updates, you can view a list of mods you've favorited on your profile page. Clicking the favorite button a second time unfavorites the mod.

You will only see the add to mod list button if you have an active mod list. If the mod is already in your mod list, the button will change to "Remove from mod list".

The mod's status can be good, outdated, or unstable. Mod status is changed through appeals. You can click the status to bring up the appeals modal. See the appeals help page for more information.

Messages

Messages on the page display below the header section. This includes confirmation messages when you perform certain actions (e.g. adding/removing the mod from your active mod list, submitting a contribution, etc.), and error messages when an action fails.

An incompatibility message is displayed when you visit the page of a mod that is incompatible with one or more mods in your active mod list. The message is displayed if an approved compatibility note with good standing with a status of incompatible or partially compatible exists for the mod and another mod in your mod list. Check out the compatibility tab for details when you see this message.
