Check the legitimacy of anything you plan on downloading to make sure that it is safe for your computer.
- Download the mods. Simply press the “Download” button next to any mods that you might want to try out. This will typically initiate a download of a .ZIP or .RAR file that contains the mod files. You’ll need a program like WinZip or WinRAR to open these types of files.
- Check to see if the mod can automatically install itself. In some cases, mods will be designed to install themselves so that you don’t have to worry about digging around in the game’s installation directory.
