The Über Easy Way:

Say the mod came in a folder, and that folder contains subfolders such as Gostek-gfx, Weapons-gfx, Txt, and the like. Drag that main folder into \Soldat\Mods\. Now, Make a shortcut  to Soldat on your desktop or whatever, right-click the icon, and select properties. Under the target field, change

"...\Soldat\Soldat.exe"

to

"...\Soldat\Soldat.exe -mod spork"

Include the quotes, and replace spork by the name of the folder that the mod is in. Run the shortcut, and the mod should work.

No, the other poeple don't see the mod that you are using. (unless of course, they are using the same mod as you)

Some might've found that entertaining, but I didn't.

@Mistercharles: I thought you keep the end-quote where it is and add [ -mod X] after it, at the very end.

Okay, let me try to be as clear as possible for you:

Up to Soldat 1.2.1, the only way to use mods was through a mod-changer or the method of copying it into your Soldat folder which could fubar your copy of Soldat.

In Soldat 1.3 and beyond, a new command line parameter was included, -mod. To use it:
1. Download the mod you want. It will usually be in a .zip, but could also be in a .rar. Open it up and make sure it has folders like Weapons-gfx, Sfx, Interface-gfx, Textures, etc.
2. Go into your Soldat\Mods folder (usually C:\Soldat\Mods\), and create a new folder named similar to the mod, i.e. "Nerf Mod" (without the quotes).
3. Open the new folder and extract the contents of the archive into the folder. If you downloaded a gostek, create a new folder inside the first folder you made named Gostek-gfx, then extract the archive into that folder. This may take a while.
4. Open the "Run..." dialogue from the start menu. Type in the adress of your Soldat program (usually C:\Soldat\Soldat.exe) into the box.
5. At the end of that adress, add -mod "mod name" (with the quotes), where "mod name" is the same as the name of the folder you created in step 2. The full command in the box should now resemble something like C:\Soldat\Soldat.exe -mod "Nerf Mod". Hit enter. The mod should run now.
If not, private message me or try to contact me over a messenger program for troubleshooting.

This is like the 3rd or 4th time I've done this.

I don't know, I've never done it that way. I always use batch files or the run command.

Quotes are necessary for folder names which have spaces in them (ex:"my mod") otherwise soldat will think its 2 different parameters.

and .bat files are useful for people who want to release a mod because they will work no matter where soldat is installed unlike shortcuts.
