    Server mods never left!

    In fact, server mods are now in the live build as well! :-D

    The box to choose the default server mods(like the copy+paste one) doesnt show up in the lobby screen. T_T

    You need to have appropriate mods.json file in "server_mods" directory, e.g:
    Code:
    {
        "mount_order":
        [
            "com.uberent.pa.mods.stockmods.server.cheat.allow_mod_data_updates",
            "com.uberent.pa.mods.stockmods.server.cheat.allow_create_unit",
            "com.uberent.pa.mods.stockmods.server.cheat.allow_change_vision",
            "com.uberent.pa.mods.stockmods.server.cheat.allow_change_control"
        ]
    }
    It's part of work that mod managers doing.

    Is the .json file there already, or do I just pop open Notepad, paste the code in, save and im good to go?

    Is this the right directory? C:\Program Files\PA\Planetary Annihilation\PTE\media\ui\mods\server_mods

    I'm pretty sure that its somewhere in your appdata that you put that folder. That path is for UI mods

    C:\Users\*username omitted*\AppData\Local\Uber Entertainment\Planetary Annihilation\mods\Server_mods\?

    Or is the Server_mods folder in the same folder as that mods folder?

    Yes server_mods is similar to mods (which is an alias for client_mods now)

    Just to double check, is that all of the cheats in the latest gamma version?

    It's all built-in cheats, possible there is more on mods forum, but I didn't checked. ;)

    The thing is I made a mods.json file inside of C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Uber Entertainment\Planetary Annihilation\mods\Server_mods and put your code inside with notepad but it did not work. I am not great with this sorta stuff so could you please give me a quick run down of what I have to do to get the cheats working? Thanks in advance.

    1. Make a new text document in the server mods folder.
    2. Copy and paste that code into the text document and save it.
    3. Rename that file to mods.json

    Fire up PA and create a game. It should list 4 mods in the bottom right hand corner.
