Installing Factorio Mods For Headless

  • Last Post 16 May 2021

I am trying to get my headless Factorio instance to run with mods, how do I go about doing this? Is there a special folder that they need to go in so that they will be detected when server is started?

OS Name/Version: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS

Product Name/Version: AMP Release "Ganymede" v2.1.1.4, built 07/05/2021 19:00

Problem Description: Cannot get factorio instance to register/ install mods

Actions taken to resolve so far: Created a mods folder in root directory using the file manager, however, no matter which / how many mods I put in, the instance is started without mods.

IIRC just make a "mods" folder in the game folder and install the mods there like you would normally. Factorio will take care of the rest
