This topic will be a guide on how to install mods, worlds, components, and probably some other stuff to the PC edition of Total Miner. I'll even include pictures so you can be lazy and not read stuff.

HOW TO INSTALL MODS:
Download the .rar/.zip file of the mod you want, and open it using Winrar, .7zip or whatever archiving program you use.
Extract the folder to C:Username>Documents>My Games>TotalMiner>Mods
If there is no Mods folder, simply create one and extract the files there.

Start the game, and go to Setup > Manage Mods
Then activate them. In the setup screen, you can select whether these mods apply to all worlds or only new worlds.

Example of a Mods folder


HOW TO INSTALL MAPS
Follow the same instructions as with mods, but instead extract the folder into the Maps folder.
Example of a Maps folder:


HOW TO INSTALL COMPONENTS
Ok, you'll never guess how to do this, so I'll just tell you. Same thing as before, but with the Com folder. Just make sure each folder has a unique name so there's no conflicts.
Example of a Components Folder:



Picture Guide:
Spoiler for Hidden Content:



These three folders will be the ones we use. If there is no Mods folder, simply create one yourself. The Com folder is for components, the Maps folder is for worlds, and the Mods folder is for mods.

Thanks GK, This is mostly self explanatory, but it makes finding things a bit easier now! The pin was well worth it!
