How do I compress my mod folder?

Postby ikachan » Fri Mar 27, 2020 6:18 am

I've done a small amount of modding previously and now coming back to it I've found that when I compress my mod to a .zip folder and then rename it to .ftl it no longer works.

I've tried using some of my previously working mods and found that unpacking it and repacking it is enough to stop the mod from working. I'm using 7-zip to compress the files, do I need to use something else?

I haven't done much modding either, so take this with a grain of salt. 7-zip works fine for me. When I had problems like this, it was because I was compressing the parent folder instead of selecting the data, img, etc. folders and compressing those. I hope this helps! If not, then I have no idea what else to try.
