How to add mods to your KSP server when using DMP

This article only applies when your Kerbal Space Program game server is hosted using the Dark Multiplayer Mod (DMP), this is the default setup when ordering here. We do also support Luna Multiplayer instead, please contact us if you'd like to switch to this. (there may-be extra charge)

First you must have DMP installed on your computer.

Install the mods you want in Kerbal Space Program on your computer. (You place them in the Game Data folder on your computer. more info. )

Run KSP on your computer

In the DarkMultiplayer - status box, click "options"

Click on either:

(A) Generate blacklist DMPModControl.txt

Users on the server will be able to use any mods. Unless they are listed in the blacklist section. Some people will be able to see and use other peoples modded parts, and others will not, recommended for public servers where you cant communicate your mod list to other people on the server.

(B) Generate whitelist DMPModControl.txt

Users will only be able to connect to server, only they have all the required and optional files (mods). This ensures that everyone can see everything, and is recommended for servers where you can communicate the mods.

Tell the other people joining the server what mods you have, so that they can install them too, so they will be able to see your mods.

Find the newly generated DMPModControl.txt that will be found in your KSP root directory. Located in a simlar place to this: SteamLibrary\SteamApps\common\Kerbal Space Program

Upload the newly generated DMPModControl.txt to the server and replace it with the one currently there.

Restart the server, and reconnect

The name must stay as DMPModControl.txt

You can also look at the instructions and other notes inside the file. Which show you how to do other things, and change a few things, so you can customise to your exact requirements.
