How to Install Mods for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II on the Mac
So you bought Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II – The Sith Lords on the Mac, and you’ve been hearing about some mods for the game that you just must install. In particular, you want to add the most popular mod for the game, The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod. Well, young Padawan, whether you’re on the Mac App Store or Steam version, we can help you learn.
Installing The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod on the Mac App Store
Download and install the mod from the link below:
For other mods, you can manually drag and drop them into the Mods folder located in User/Library/Containers/com.aspyr.kotor2.appstore/Data/Library/Application Support/KOTOR 2.
OSX 10.7 and up now hide this directory, so please press cmd+shift+G to bring up a search window in Finder and type in '~/library' to access this directory.
Installing The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod and Other Mods on Steam
Adding The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod and others through Steam is incredibly simplified through the Steam Workshop function. In fact, we’ve already written up a fairly extensive guide on how to use the Steam Workshop; be sure to check it out to learn a little more.
If you’re only interested in KOTOR II, though, just follow these steps:
- Open your Steam client and navigate to the Steam Library page for KOTOR II.
- Once there, select ‘Browse the Workshop’.
- From here you’ll be able to browse available mods, including The Sith Lords Restored Content Mod.
- Once you find a mod you want, select ‘Subscribe’.
- Now just launch KOTOR II and enjoy the mod!
If you ever want to disable a mod, just navigate back to where you subscribed to it, and select “Unsubscribe.”
That covers the basics for mods in KOTOR II. Keep in mind that Aspyr can’t guarantee that any particular mod will work as advertised. And always, always be careful about where you try to download them.
If you run into serious technical trouble, a clean re-install of the game can help, or you can also reach out to Aspyr Support. Otherwise, enjoy the game and any mods you choose!
