Steam Mods and addons not working.

Question

Hi,

I am trying to get addons and mods working (although im not sure what the difference is), but i cant seem to get the game to recognize them.  steam saves the game into C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Kerbal Space Program\ and although i have put a few addons in the GameData dir, the only one it loads at startup is this one C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Kerbal Space Program\GameData\Squad

Here is a directory listing of the GameData on my machine but none of the addons will load at startup. Does anyone know what Im doing wrong here?

I think all of those mods are available via CKAN, which will install and update the mods for you.

Did you put the zip files in the Gamedata folder? If you did make sure you unzip them. But it might have to do with your game being in program files.
