Mod Types

The type=“” attribute for each of the mods in your pack tells the ATLauncher how to deal with the mod and how to install it. Some mod types contain extra attributes which must be added to your <mod /> declaration in order for it to work.

The ATLauncher admin website doesn't check to make sure these work, so you must make sure and test yourself to make sure they work and install correctly.

Minecraft Forge

Specifies that this mod file is Minecraft Forge and should be installed in the Jar or placed in the Root directory for Minecraft >1.6 server installs.

type="forge"

Jar Mods

Specifies that this mod file should be extracted into the minecraft.jar file.

type="jar"

Normal Mods

Specifies that this mod file should be placed into the 'mods' folder. This is what most mods will use as their type.

type="mods"

Flans Mod Addons

Specifies that this mod file should be placed into the 'Flan' folder.

type="flan"

Dependency Mods

Specifies that this mod file should be placed into the 'mods/(MC Version)/' folder, for instance for Minecraft 1.6.4 it would install in the 'mods/1.6.4/' folder. This generally includes CodeChickenLib, WorldCore and ForgeMultiPart. Please note that's not a complete list and may include more mods and all mods may not all apply to your pack.

type="dependency"

IC2 Library

Specifies that this mod file should be placed into the 'mods/ic2/' folder. This is used at the moment only for adding the EJML library that IC2 externally downloads when started up. This is not a specific type just for the mod IC2.

type="ic2lib"

Den Library

Specifies that this mod file should be placed into the 'mods/denlib/' folder. This is used at the moment only for adding the SQLite JDBC library that denLib externally downloads when started up. This is not a specific type just for the mod denLib.

Puts the files in the mods/ folder.

extractto="coremods"

Puts the files in the coremods/ folder.

Extract Folder

Specifies which folder within the extracted file that should be acted upon. Any folder slashes should be replaced with %s%, so for instance if there is a folder in the zip file called SomeMod/Put In Mods Folder/ which contains all the files which need to go in the mods folder then you would have extractfolder=“SomeMod%s%Put In Mods Folder%s%”. A trailing %s% should always be added.

extractfolder=""
