-Doomsday is able to load the following types of mods: 
- 
-  * .wad 
-  * .deh (DeHackEd patch) 
-  * .pk3 
-  * .ded (Doomsday-specific definitions) 
-  * .box (folder containing a set of mods) 
-  * .pack (Doomsday 2 Package) 
- 
-If the mod is a ZIP archive, it may need to be unzipped first. If you have a ZIP file that isn't being recognized by Doomsday, try unzipping it in your mods folder. The problem with ZIPs is that sometimes it really is a PK3 with the wrong file extension, and sometimes it is a collection of many mods that need to be accessed separately.
