In this guide, we'll walk you through everything you need to know to harness the full potential of BepInEx and elevate your Subnautica gameplay. Whether you're on Windows, macOS, or Linux (including SteamOS), we've got you covered.

What is BepInEx?

BepInEx is a versatile framework designed for Unity modding. It empowers gamers and modders alike by providing a platform for loading custom code, patching in-game elements, configuring plugins, and managing dependencies. It's the key to unlocking a world of possibilities within Subnautica.

What's Inside Tobey's BepInEx Pack for Subnautica?

Our pack comes preconfigured and ready to use, specifically tailored for Subnautica modding. Here's what you can expect:

1. Tobey.Subnautica.ConfigHandler: A configurable BepInEx patcher that effortlessly manages BepInEx configuration for QModManager compatibility.

2. Tobey.UnityAudio: A configurable BepInEx patcher that seamlessly integrates Unity audio support, ensuring your mods sound just right.

3. Tobey.FileTree: A configurable BepInEx plugin that logs Subnautica's file structure, a handy tool for troubleshooting any issues that may arise during your modding adventures.

Compatibility with QModManager:

We understand you may have questions about compatibility with QModManager. Rest assured, BepInEx and QModManager can coexist, but there are a few things to keep in mind. For detailed information, refer to the FAQ section in the Posts tab.

Installation (Automatic, Windows Only):

Let's get started with an automatic installation on Windows using Vortex Mod Manager:

1. If you haven't already, install Vortex Mod Manager and ensure it's up-to-date.

2. Click the Vortex button at the top of the page to initiate the installation process.

3. Keep an eye on the notifications area in the top-right corner of Vortex. You may receive prompts related to QModManager. Simply follow the on-screen instructions.

4. Launch the game, and if all goes well, you'll witness the BepInEx console appearing on your desktop.

Installation on macOS for Beginners:

Installation (Manual):

If you prefer a manual installation or are using a platform other than Windows, follow these steps:

1. Download Tobey's BepInEx Pack for Subnautica from the Files tab.

2. Extract the downloaded archive's contents into the game folder. On Windows and Linux (SteamOS, etc.), this folder contains the game executable (Subnautica.exe). On macOS, it's the folder housing

Configuration (Linux and macOS):

For Linux (SteamOS, etc.) and macOS users, configuring your system is essential:

Linux Configuration:

1. In Steam, access the game's properties and set the launch arguments as follows:
WINEDLLOVERRIDES="winhttp=n,b" %command%

2. Launch the game via Steam.

macOS Configuration (Steam Only):

1. Make the file executable by running the following command in Terminal:
chmod u+x "<path to game folder>/"
Replace <path to game folder> with your actual game folder path.

2. In Steam, visit the game's properties and set the launch arguments to:
"<path to game folder>/" %command%
Again, replace <path to game folder> with your actual game folder path.

3. Launch the game via Steam.

4. If you encounter a prompt warning about "libdoorstop_x64.dylib" not being opened due to an unverified developer, follow these steps:
- Open System Preferences.
- Navigate to Security & Privacy and select the General tab.
- Look for the "program was blocked from opening" message and click "Open Anyway." Confirm any resulting prompts.

Please note that BepInEx may not exhibit clear signs of operation on macOS. To test its functionality, consider installing a simple plugin like ConfigurationManager and use the F5 key to open the Configuration Manager window.

For those wishing to use QModManager alongside BepInEx, follow the Installing QModManager on macOS guide to ensure compatibility.

macOS Configuration (Non-Steam Platforms, e.g., Epic Games):

While the best modding experience on macOS is via Steam, there is a workaround for those who own Subnautica on non-Steam platforms. Please note that this workaround supports BepInEx plugins but does not extend to mods requiring BepInEx patchers or QModManager.

Unlock the full potential of your Subnautica adventure with Tobey's BepInEx Pack for Subnautica. Explore new horizons and enjoy a world of customized gameplay. Dive in today!
