I presume your asking where to put your mod files in order to play them? If so, you simply need to:

1.) Find and open your LucasArts directory (folder). 2.) Open the (in this case you mentioned FoC) directory. 3.) Inside you may find a Mods folder, if not, create it. 4.) Then, inside that folder you place your mod's folder containing it's Data folder. (Ex. Mods [folder] contains MyMod1.3 [folder] containing Data [folder] which in turn contains all the subfolders that contain all the files that MyMod1.3 uses.)

Hopefully that explains it enough you can manage. If not surely someone else here, Bing, Google, or I can help you further. :nodding:

Edit: 5.) Unless the mod comes with it's own launch shortcut, create a shortcut to swfoc.exe by right-clicking on it and selecting "Create shortcut" from the context menu that appears. Locate the shortcut you just created and edit it's properties by right-clicking it and selecting "Properties" and in the "Target" textbox add a space and "MODPATH=Mods\MyMod1.3" after the already present text. Of course you'd replace the "MyMod1.3" in the text you enter with the name of the mod folder containing the mod's Data.

Now you should be all set to play your mod. If the shortcut doesn't launch the game with your mod files the MODPATH in the shortcut may require a second look.

This is the coding for the target box in the shortcut properties....

"C:\Program Files (x86)\LucasArts\Star Wars Empire at War Forces of Corruption\swfoc.exe" "MODPATH=Mods\Personal"

Now, you need to replace the 'personal' code out and put in the name of the mod you want to play.

"MODPATH=Mods\Personal" is the only thing you ADD to the shortcut! MAKE sure it has the quotation marks at the beginning and ending of the new code. The entire target path will have 2 sets of quotation marks, NOT one!

Hope this helps
