So we are here to announce our new ModLoader for The Forest to modify your game and add / balance new features. You just have to download the Tool, go to Mod Browser and load a mod.
The Forest Mod Loader Server
The ModLoader will access our mod server and download the newest mods on first launch. Unfortunately, if the game will be updated or new hotfixes are out, the old mods will not work anymore. Thats the reason, why we choose to use a mod server.
Our team will update and add all available mods as soon as possible. So if there are new mods for e.g. version v0.03, just click on “Update Modlist” and get the latest mods.

We’ve created a small tool to fix your The Forest loadingscreen crash due to 32bit system. If you have 32 bit Windows, your The Forest game will crash in some circumstances.
Tutorial: Download our Crashfix Tool and run our crashfix with administrator rights ( right click extracted .exe and run as admin ) Now you can see a button labeled “Try to Fix That Bug”. After clicking that button the tool will fix some values in your registry to allow The Forest game to allocate more memory of your 32bit ram.
Reboot your system and disable your antivirus system before starting The Forest ( some antivirus software is in conflict and can cause loading screen crashes, too. Now your problem should be solved – if not, we’ve got an english section in our Forums ( you can set the forums to english language, too ). There you can create a thread with your problem described.
We hope that our small “The Forest loadingscreen crash fix tool” will help you play The Forest on a 32Bit system.

You may wonder how you to save in The Forest. Unfortunately there is no quicksave function to save The Forest game. So how to save at The Forest now?
The answer is crafting a “schelter” ingame. Therefore you have to look for a couple of sticks and stones and then open the crafting book using the B button . There you will find the possibility to build a shelter. If you have crafted this object, you can save your game there. Many players with the version 0.01 The Forest have problems saving the game . Do you have this problem too? Are you able to save your game? How ?
The first “The Forest” fanpage was launched. Here you can find all infos, news and downloads related to The Forest.
A community forum and more is in development, stay tuned !
