Making a empty mod

Now you'll want to:

  1. Open the Paradox Launcher
  2. Click All installed mods
  3. Click UPLOAD MOD
  4. Click CREATE A MOD
  5. Pick a displayname for the mod, write whatever under version and choose a foldername for the mod and write that after the mod/ bit in the Directory field. You should also check the Total Conversion checkbox.
It should look something like this
  1. Click CREATE MOD
  2. Click OK on the "Your mod has been created" window
  3. Exit out of the menu by pressing X

This should have created a .mod file and a empty folder in your equivalent of Documents\Paradox Interactive\Crusader Kings III\mod

Extraction

Now we need to extract some of the contents of the downloaded file to folder you created for your mod.

  • If you downloaded the mod from Paradox Plaza then you will want to extract all of the files except descriptor.mod and princesofdarkness.mod to the folder of your new mod.
  • If you downloaded the mod from GitHub you'll want to go into princesofdarknessmod-for-ck3\dev\devpod and then extract all of the files except descriptor.mod and princesofdarkness.mod to the folder of your new mod.

Execution

Now that you have done this you can restart the Paradox Launcher, add the new mod to a playset (remember to enable it) and then hopefully launch the game.
