Are there any additional requirements besides dotnet48 for this expansion?
Current mod version use .net framework 4.8, MonoMod and SlimDX for drawing and directX.
You can try to start game in Wine with original DW:U, it use .net 3.5 if I remember right.

Hello, I don't suppose someone could explain to me how to properly install this mod, I have modded this game before, it was specifically for the bacon mod but it was years ago and I don't quite remember how to do it, I used a video then but I can't seem to find it. I installed it into the same folder that the EXE file is in but I didn't see any noticeable difference, I installed it into the customization folder, same thing. Any help would be appreciated.

Also, I was looking to use DWUR, just FYI if that matters/changes anything.

As far as I can remember the readme in DWUR tells you how to install the expansion mod properly.

From what I've been able to find after diving through the files, there's no mention of how to install the expansion mod within DWUR, maybe an older version had it, but its not there anymore

so if anyone has insight or know-how, it would be greatly appreciated!

There's a little mistake in the first post on this thread in the 'installation' section. You need to copy all the files FROM the Expansion mod zip's 'full' folder to the game root directory, not the folder itself, which sounds like your problem.

The first post in the DWUR thread tells you how to install that mod.

Hi, Google Download won't let me download this mod, it says it has a virus. Where do I download this mod?
