Mods on Consoles - FAQs & Support Guide

Mods for SnowRunner are now live on PS4 and Xbox One! We're getting a high number of support requests to mod.io HQ right now, so we've created this FAQ to hopefully answer some of the most common questions. :)

Q: How do I use mods with SnowRunner on PS4 / Xbox

A: Everything is in-game, so you just launch the game, enter the mod browser, subscribe to a mod, then activate it when the download is complete. :)

Q: I am subscribing to mods on the mod.io website, but they do not appear in game

A: Only the mods available from the mod browser are available for consoles. Most of the mods on the website are currently PC only (see next Q&A). Subscribing to mods that are not available on the console mod menu will not be available on these platforms.

Please use the mod browser to discover and install mods on consoles, or click here to browse console-approved mods.

Q: I can only see a limited number of mods on XBOX / PS4? Why is this?

A: Mods on consoles must be pre-approved before appearing in the game - and as such, there is a limited subset of mods on consoles. Due to the rules imposed by console platforms, some mods are not suitable for consoles and are not available. More mods are slowly being added to consoles, as they must be manually pre-approved by the developer/console platforms. More will slowly appear over the days and weeks.

You can now read a blog post from Focus Home Interactive about the selection process and requirements for mods on Consoles, by clicking here. Please use the mod browser to discover and install mods on consoles, or click here to browse console-approved mods.

Q: Certain mods were available before, but have now gone - why is this?

A: All mods when they are updated require re-approval and will be unavailable while this process happens. Also, some mods have found to have issues and may be removed temporarily as they are reviewed by the Focus Home team.

Q: Why are mods I have subscribed to not available or downloading slowly?

A: If you are experiencing slow downloads, or mods are not appearing as quickly as you expect, this is due to the large file sizes of some of the mods available. Mods will download in the background only while the game is running, at a fixed transfer speed. Please be patient and allow plenty of time for these mods to appear while the game is running. If you don't wish to wait, we recommend choosing some of the smaller mods that are available instead.

Q: I have an issue with SnowRunner crashing/compatibility with mods within SnowRunner

A: As we only provide the backend API that the developers use to implement mod support - for issues loading the content, please contact the game's developers, Focus Home Interactive, directly- support@focus-home.com

Q: I am getting an error message stating 'Not Enough Space' - but I have not subscribed to any mods yet.

Consoles only have limited space (1GB) allocated for mods across all games - regardless of how much free storage you have. You may need to check what you have installed on your console and remove some things to find the space. Also, some of the Focus Home mods are close to 1GB big, so you may only be able to have 1 mod installed at a time due to the space limitation.

Clearing your cache, or reinstalling the game, can sometimes fix issues around this. If you are still having issues, please contact the game's developers, Focus Home Interactive directly- support@focus-home.com

Q: I am seeing a 401 error code in SnowRunner on XBOX / PS4

A: This error usually appears when there is an issue contacting SnowRunner's servers. Please ensure you have an active internet connection and try again. If you are still having issues, please contact Focus Home Interactive directly for support - support@focus-home.com

Q: I am unable to sign in on my Xbox, or I get an error/spinning loader icon

This is a bug that appears to occur on the console versions of the game. We are seeing reports that uninstalling and reinstalling the game can resolve this issue. This issue can also be caused by the use of child accounts that fall into the age bracket of 15 years old or younger.

Microsoft does not provide us with exact dates of birth for privacy reasons - they only provide us with an age range (i.e. 10-14) - as such legally we must reject the login request as we don't know if its the child is above or below the age of 13 in order to comply with COPPA laws.

if an adult account is failing the check they are signed into more than one Xbox Live account, which is why a lot of games suggest logging out of all other accounts prior to starting a particular game to prevent issues like this. If 2 users are logged in for example and one is marked as Child and one Adult, it's best for us to reject the login request as we don't know if its the Child or the Adult playing.

Q: I am seeing a 401 error code in SnowRunner on PC

A: Mods are currently not available on the Test / Preview server of SnowRunner. If you are using the mainstream version, the typical fix for this issue is to force Snowrunner to reauthenticate. You can do that by deleting the following file and restarting the game: C:\Users\%USERNAME%\Documents\My Games\SnowRunner\base\Mods\.modio\au - you must have a legal copy of the game for mods to work.

Q: The authentication code is not working

A: The security code is only valid for 15 minutes, and you can only request one code every 15 minutes. Please wait for a while, then restart the game and try again after 15 minutes. If you still have issues, please contact us by clicking here.

Q: I did not receive an authentication code

A: Please check your spam/junk folder, and wait a few minutes for the code to arrive. If the code is not in your spam/junk folder that likely means you misspelled your email. Please wait for 15 minutes, then trying again, ensuring you are entering your e-mail address correctly - common mistakes we are seeing in our logs are;

- Users putting spaces or other invalid characters in their e-mail address - e-mail addresses cannot have spaces.

- Users using commas instead of dots in their e-mail address

- Users mis-spelling their e-mail address by mistake and not realizing

- Users not putting the .com on the end of their address, or using .com when the address has another extension, such as .co.uk

Note the security code is only valid for 15 minutes, and you can only request one code every 15 minutes. Please wait for a while, then restart the game and try again after 15 minutes. If you still have issues, please contact us by clicking here.

Q: I am seeing a 422 error code when authenticating

A: The error code 422 usually means something was malformed when it was entered into one of the boxes.

- Users putting spaces or other invalid characters in their e-mail address - e-mail addresses cannot have spaces.

- Users using commas instead of dots in their e-mail address

- Users mis-spelling their e-mail address by mistake and not realizing

- Users not putting the .com on the end of their address, or using .com when the address has another extension, such as .co.uk

- This may mean that you are entering your email when you should be entering a 5 digit authentication code, or the authentication code you are entering is not valid. Make sure the authentication code you are entering is exactly 5 digits long (i.e. ZAOYC). If that doesn't work we recommend you exit the game and start again, entering your email then authentication code

I’m on Xbox and on my mod menu I do not have most of the other mods that Everyone else has like the IX wrecker and other mods why is this?

Im also looking for the ix wrecker. Tomcat shows it being available but Ive subscribed to it and its not showing on my xbox. Why is it there for him and not us?

FileTrekker
FileTrekker @filetrekker

Some mods have been delisted as they have issues, I believe. This is a question for the developer though.

ES
esorokin @esorokin

Not delisted, mods disappear from approved list after update since we need to re-test and make sure that all works properly after update

So I never received my activation code... I've tried 3 times now each waiting about 20min before trying again, does this mean I now have to wait 24 hours and try again??

FileTrekker

You may get a code when you retry. 24 hours is our current estimate for the issue to be fully resolved - but hopefully sooner. We will share more when we can.

This is so rediculous considering you can already have an acoount but cannot verify on ps4.

TD
tdakrjkzjk @tdakrjkzjk

I have not received my verification email yet either, it is nearly 8:45 pm where I live, has anyone found out what the problem with this is? If so could you please share. I have roughly an hour during the week after work for recreation, yet ive been trying to try out these console mods for nearly 2 hours, like everyone else just want to enjoy this feature. If they know it is an issue, why are they not responding on here and at very least personally give those of us with this problem a code that will work instead of leaving us in limbo. Bad enough the months everyone has waited for mods on console now because I own a PS4 I can "check again" in 24 hours and see if ill be gifted a freaking code to allow me this? Bad form devs... just bad form...

OA
oakensplint @oakensplint

Yeah they could start f-ing giving out the codes on here or pm.
People are just lazy, pathetic and careless.

FileTrekker
FileTrekker @filetrekker

It's not possible for us to manually issue codes, the system does not work like that. Even if we could, over 50,000 new users have attempted to authenticate in a short period of time. Even if just 10% have an issue, there is far too many users to issue codes manually and individually. The team are working *incredibly* hard right now to resolve this and we ask for your patience.

TD
tdakrjkzjk @tdakrjkzjk

And can someone please explain why console brand matters when it comes to receiving an email on the computer?

OA
oakensplint @oakensplint

Ikr its absolutley retarded
Waited for this update since mudrunner

TD
tdakrjkzjk @tdakrjkzjk

it seems that when it comes to games that appear on pc, since the xbox is the adopted sibling of the pc, then ps4 owners are always after thoughts, as long as the majority of customers are satisfied. from the comments the only logical conclussion is that almost all snowrunner players are on ps4, thus why there is such a high demand causing an "influx"

FileTrekker
FileTrekker @filetrekker

Xbox supports Single-Sign-On (SSO) authentication, which means an e-mail isn't needed at all where supported. Authentication on PS4 works slightly differently - but the issue isn't because of PS4 specifically.

FileTrekker
FileTrekker @filetrekker

The issue isn't related to consoles or brands - it's an issue with our e-mail service provider, and the sheer unprecedented volume of emails sent. This will be resolved ASAP.

OA
oakensplint @oakensplint

Saying try again in 24 hours is not asap

OA
oakensplint @oakensplint

Well tyvm. Apparrenty abbab pays off

FileTrekker
FileTrekker @filetrekker

Given we can't predict when the issue will be resolved, all we can do is give you a conservative estimate. It's in nobody's best interests, certainly not ours, to resolve things any slower than "ASAP" - I understand you're frustrated but we're working as hard as we can to solve the issue.

OA
oakensplint @oakensplint

Any of yall still waiting??

FileTrekker
FileTrekker @filetrekker

The issue should now be resolved, but you may need to give it 15 or so minutes before attempting to request a new code, see update above.

This is a function of one of the mods - you will need to disable that mod.

So snowrunner.mod.io doesn't work for consoles

Yes, it does, but you can do everything through the mod menu, and only mods that are validated to work on consoles will appear on consoles - there are only a limited number (around 30) approved currently.

Is disabling mods the same thing as deleting them? I am trying to address the “not enough memory issue” on PS4 pro. This is madness that I can’t have a few mods simultaneously.

FileTrekker
FileTrekker @filetrekker

Consoles have inherent limitations in hardware. Disabling them stops them working in game but keeps them on your storage drive to quickly reactivate.

Does anyone know how to delete a mod once it’s installed on Xbox. A mod that I downloaded was removed and when I try to play co-op, he can’t play because the mod was removed by the devs. I’ve tried disconnecting from the internet like it says when “clean up” but it’s still installed.

You can request a new code - there is no need to wait any longer than 15 minutes if you have not received one by then simply close the game and restart it, and try again. Make sure you are using a valid e-mail address and have typed it correctly.

We're getting a lot of messages exactly like this - insistent they are entering correctly - and when we dig deeper we're finding people are making typos without realising, and even missing the .com from the end thinking its not needed, and things of that nature. We're monitoring and running every test we can and there are no issues on our end.
