Hello. I'm sort of new to this modding thing. If you download mods for Dead Island does it change the way the game play works on multi player or is it only for single player? If the mod works on multi player, does that mean everyone has the mod or only one person? Thanks for anyone who helps =)

The way the game seems to handle multi-player is mostly client side, this means that you can have a ridiculously modded out game and people will see you jumping 100 feet or whatever, but it won't change their game at all.

You could have a 1 hit kill mod on and ruin everything while your buddies still play vanilla, basically. However there are exceptions where your mods can change their game, like if you have a mod that causes zombies to drop awesome weapons or tons of cash, which vanilla users could see and utilize.

In most cases any mod you install will only change your game, they won't get the effects of it unless you synchronize your mod installations with them.
