Find the mods you want to install on the steam workshop. For this example, we will be using “Better Sorting” which is a mod that categorizes items in the game.
On the Steam workshop page for Project Zomboid mods there is a workshop ID and mod ID (Typically listed at the bottom before the comments). Mod IDs are usually the name of the mod, and the workshop IDs are a set of numbers. You can also find the workshop ID in the URL for the page.
Note: Some mods may have multiple mod IDs. In this case read the description of the mod to find out if you need all of them or not.
Step 2: Listing workshop IDs and mod IDs
Open the Advanced Game Settings.
Find the line that says Mods=
List the mod ID from before here. For multiple mods, list them separated by a semicolon. Example: Mods=BetterSortCC;mod1;mod2;mod3
Find the line that says WorkshopItems=
List the workshop IDs here. Example: WorkshopItems=2313387159;123456;7891011
Save and restart your server. If you have a lot of mods, the server may take some time to download them for the first time. You will be prompted to install the mods when you join the server.
Note: Some mods may require a soft reset to work, such as map mods. See our map mods and soft reset tutorials for more information.
