Mods are some of the best ways to add features and improvements to games and one of the best things about being a PC gamer. While mods are awesome, they can be a lot of work to maintain and keep functioning especially when games are newly released like Palworld. Newly released games are constantly getting updates which means modders constantly need to keep updating their mods in order to keep things working.

So if a modder hasn’t updated their mod for the latest game up there’s more than likely going to be a problem. But that isn’t the only problem, so follow along as we guide you mods causing Palworld to crash. If you do plan on modding Palworld we highly suggest sticking with the Steam version of Palworld and Nexus mods Vortex Mod Manager. Game Pass versions of games are a lot more problematic and sometimes unsupported.

As we mentioned above, the first thing you need to check are mod updates. So head on over to the place you got your mods and download any updated mods. This will probably be Nexus mods and you’re probably using the Vortex mod manager.

  • If this is the case, open Vortex on your computer then click the Update icon in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. If you have quite a few mods, this will take some time to process. If any updates are detected, you’ll get a notification. Some will auto-update, while others will require a manual update.
  • To manually update a mod, just right-click on the mod and select view on Nexus Mods, then download the latest file.
  • When checking for and updating mods, pay close attention to the primary mods (dependencies). If a core mod is broken you can expect a lot of other mods to fail.

If you aren’t using Vortex Mod Manager you are going to have to update and replace all of the mod files you added manually each and every time a mod is created. This is a time-consuming process which is why most people have switched to using Vortex.
