Some mods let you edit key bindings, which are controller/keyboard/mouse buttons which do something in-game. This page explains how to configure them.

How to configure a mod's bindings

  1. Install the mod (see help).
  2. Run SMAPI at least once with the mod to let it generate its config file.
  3. Edit config.json in the mod's folder with a text editor.
  4. Change the key options using the values below.

Note that some mods may not be configurable.
