How to set a custom data path


Recommended Posts

[Mod Edit] Moved discussion from https://www.vintagestory.at/forums/topic/301-client-cheat-free-client-side-chat-commands-v020/


On my desktop, I have my C drive in a small Solid State Drive and 4 x 4 TB Hard Drive in Raid mode. That's my Drive D.

 

I always keep all the Data in the D drive and reserve the C Drive just for the Operating system and essential software.

It actually bothers me how more and more games nowadays keep inserting data into the appdata folder. No option for the player there. When I noticed Ark Survival evolved had already used almost 50 GB of my C Drive.

I will change the Drive if it is the only way to make it work though.

There is. Edit your VintageStory shortcut and add append something like this to the target

--dataPath="D:\vsdata"

I've followed this to move saves out of AppData, however I now have the issue that when I open the mods folder from in game it opens a mods folder inside the game location, but still only recognizes mods inside the AppData location.  Is there a way to shift the mods location to the game files as well?
