Fancy a few more customization options for your character? Maybe the stamina system isn’t to your liking? Fortunately, there are mods for all your Content Warning gripes.

Virality allows you to increase the size of your lobby, enabling you to play with more than just three other players. If you’ve got a big group of friends, this is the mod for you. It also allows you to toggle late joining on or off, essentially allowing your friends to join an in-session game, which isn’t possible in the vanilla version.

Volume Booster, as it sounds, gives you the ability to increase the General, SFX, and Voice volume limits as high as you want. We found this to be absolutely necessary, as there were often too many times when we couldn’t hear each other. MakeMeRagdoll isn’t a necessary mod, but it’s definitely an incredibly fun one. This allows you to ragdoll in front of your friends by simply pressing ` on your keyboard. There’s nothing quite like dropping to the floor and shaking about while monsters lurk nearby.

BetterSprint allows you to tweak the speed of your stamina regen, your max stamina, and your sprint speed. We found this to be a lifesaver, as the default speeds and stamina limits can be a little restrictive. Similarly, the MoreColors and MoreCustomization mods are absolutely necessary as they allow for even more options when it comes to customizing your character. MoreColors gives you more options when it comes to picking the color of your screen, whereas MoreCustomization gives you a ridiculous 128-character limit for face customization, the ability to copy and paste in the terminal, and infinite size adjustment for your face.

How to Find Mods for Content Warning

You can find mods for Content Warning either on the Thunderstore website, in the Thunderstore Mod Manager app, or via the game’s official modding Discord. If you’re not a fan of Discord, then we recommend the Thunderstore Mod Manager app or website, as they’re incredibly easy to use.
