And then finally, click the "Home" tab at the top, next to "View." Press the "New Folder" button. A new folder will be made, which you now need to Rename to "Mods". To rename the folder, simply right-click on it and choose the option for "Rename".
Note: This folder MUST be named exactly as 'Mods' with the captial 'M'.

Lastly, drag the extracted mod which you downloaded earlier, and drop the folder into your newly created "Mods" folder.
It should look like this:

That's it! You're now all set up with CTVI Zombies mods to allow for enhanced gameplay when playing on our server.
