Banished Modding - installing mods

Updating old versions of the game

With Steam

Simply make sure that the game is updated (you need version 1.0.4 or greater).

With a standard install

Uprade your game to at least version 1.0.4 and extract the patch into your game folder. Make sure to preserve the directory structure of the zip.

If your game version is 1.0.4 or higher, you don't need to upgrade.

Installing a mod

To install a mod for Banished, you just need to move the mod file (modname.pkm) into the WinData folder. The default locations are:

  • With Steam: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Banished\WinData
  • With standard install: C:\Program Files\Shining Rock Software\Banished\WinData

Running the mod

  • When running the game, click the mods button on the main menu, and select which mods you want to be active. Any new games you start will have those mods enabled.

To run mods on an existing save, first load the saved game, then enable mods through the in-game menu (press Esc).
