Manually download all mods or scroll to third post for a guide on how to find the .pack file for your Attila workshop subscriptions Rename all .pack files to lowercase as linux is case sensitive (ex: Radious_Mod.pack to radious_mod.pack) Place .pack files in Attila data folder (/home/username/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Total War Attila/data) Right click on .pack files and make sure ownership matches vanilla files Also make sure "is executable" box is checked (also found done by right clicking in properties) open /home/username/.Creative Assembly/Scripts/preferences.script.txt file Here you include your mod at the bottom of the file mod sharp_mod_v2.4.pack; ^^ Type "mod" then your modpack and add the semicolon at the end ;
Almost done! This file (preferences.script.txt) overwrites when you exit the game. This means you need to add your mods to this file every time you want to play Attila OR you can prevent this file from overwriting using a few different methods
Please note by preventing this file from overwriting your settings will no longer be saved! You manually tweak your settings by using this file (Your linux users after all so this shouldn't be too hard) or you will have to reverse the following instructions and reload the game.
First Method is right clicking preferences.script.txt file and setting it to read only (very simple) Second Method is to open preferences.script.txt file and find this line at the top of the file write_preferences_at_exit true; # write_preferences_at_exit , Write preferences at exit # Now make the following change write_preferences_at_exit false; # write_preferences_at_exit , Write preferences at exit # ^^This is pretty self explanatory
Done now your mod(s) will load everytime you start the game You just need to ensure all the mods you have enabled are compatible
As a side note if you want to place all the mods you have in this file so you don't forget what you have this is possible For example sharps mod and radious mod are incompatible but you want to play radious and not sharp this is how you would write it mod radious_mod.pack # mod sharp_mod.pack # ^^Just use hashtags to ensure the line is not read I know some of this will be very obvious for some but I want to include everything in this guide to avoid any questions
