ModSaber is No More, New 'Beat Saber' Mod Solution Coming Soon

231



Mods that enable custom songs in Beat Saber are unofficial and community-made, so every time the game is updated, mods inevitably break—that’s the same song and dance users have dealt with for some time (and probably will well into the future). Now, it appears ModSaber, the game’s most popular mod repository, has gone offline for good, effectively killing the associated ModSaber Installer in the process.

Update (2:10 PM ET): ModSaber developer ‘lolPants’ posted a statement on modsaber.org, which details their reasoning for stepping away from the project. Thankfully ‘lolPants’ is okay, which is a relief to hear.

The creator also pointed users to some definitive instructions for anyone looking to get their mods back before a more permanent solution (loosely speaking) arises.

ModSaber went down under mysterious circumstances yesterday. According to admins of the modding community’s Discord, the shutdown of Mod Saber is for good.

There’s no clear reason yet as to why (see update), but Discord admins say they’ll be moving their modding efforts to a new platform, which should arrive soon.

This is the message left for community members:

The mod repository ModSaber has shut down. This means that the ModSaber Installer will no longer work.

– Mods are not lost

– This is not because of the new EULA

– It’s not the end of the world.

We are in the process of moving to a different service. Currently all mods are available on Beast Saber.

Thank you for your patience and understanding

Thankfully there’s a temporary way to install many of your custom songs manually while you wait. VRFitnessInsider has created a handy guide on how to get many of the mods updated that are already designed to work with Beat Saber 13.2.

We’ll be updating our guide ‘How to Fix ‘Beat Saber’ Custom Songs and Mods After an Update’ once the new service is live and ready to fight the ongoing war to keep Beat Saber custom songs alive and well.
