This page explains how to install SMAPI (the tool which lets you use mods) on Mac. See also:


  1. Install Mono.
  2. Download the latest version of SMAPI.
  3. Extract the .zip file somewhere (but not in your game folder!).
  4. Run mono install.exe:
    1. Open the Terminal app.
    2. Type mono then a space.
    3. drag & drop the install.exe file onto the Terminal window to paste its file path.
    4. Hit enter on your keyboard.

That's it! Just launch the game to play with mods. You don't need to change your Steam launch options (that's only needed on Windows).

To install manually instead, see instructions in the installer's readme.


Just install the new version; the installer will automatically clean up previous versions.


Run mono install.exe and choose uninstall.
