Steam Workshop integration was introduced in April 2021.

Installing Steam Workshop Mods[]

  1. Open the Steam Workshop tab.
  2. Browse to any mods you'd like to install, and click the "+ Subscribe" button.
  3. Launch Garden Paws and click the blue Steam Workshop button in the upper right.
  4. You will see a list of whatever mods you subscribed to. Click "Install" for the mods you'd like to use.
  5. Exit and relaunch the game to apply the mods to your next play session. They will not work if you do not relaunch the game after installing them.

Uninstalling (2 methods)[]

  • Go to the list of mods after launching the game, and click "Uninstall".


  • Navigate to the Steam Workshop and unsubscribe to the mods you'd like to remove.

Third Party Mods[]

Questmark New.png Installing third party mods incorrectly can affect gameplay or corrupt your game folder or save files. Always back up your save folder first, just in case. Be careful when downloading any external files, and always run virus checks.
Use at your own risk.

For mods not available through the Steam Workshop:


  1. Close Garden Paws if it is running.
  2. Download the .zip archive file for the mod you want to use.
  3. Navigate to the GP data folder. The folder you want is not in the Steam folder in Program Files, but linked to your user account folder. Paste the following in Explorer/Finder and hit Enter (substituting your account name for <you> on mac). You may need to create a Mods folder if one does not exist:
         Windows: %AppData%\..\LocalLow\Bitten Toast Games\GardenPaws\Mods
         Mac: /Users/<you>/Library/Application Support/com.BittenToast.Gardenpaws/Mods
  4. If there is no Mods folder in the main GardenPaws folder, create one.
  5. Unzip the archive file into GardenPaws\Mods, under a new folder with the mod's name.
    There should now be a new "..\Bitten Toast Games\GardenPaws\Mods\Modname" folder with the mod's files inside.
  6. Delete the original zip file if you wish.
  7. Relaunch Garden Paws.


  1. Close Garden Paws if it is running.
  2. Navigate to the Mods folder:
         Windows: %AppData%\..\LocalLow\Bitten Toast Games\GardenPaws\Mods
         Mac: /Users/<you>/Library/Application Support/com.BittenToast.Gardenpaws/Mods
  3. Delete the folder belonging to the mod you want to remove.
  4. Relaunch Garden Paws.


Questmark New.png The following mods are fan-made and not part of the default Garden Paws game content.

Make sure you trust the sources (ask on Discord if you're not sure) and run virus checks on everything you download.

If you are unsure about a specific mod for any reason, don't hesitate to ask for help in the #modding-corner channel on the Bitten Toast Discord. Many of the mod authors are regular Discord users, and may be able to answer questions directly.

Using Custom Skins and Faces[]

An official Skin Editor is planned for the Steam Workshop. Until it is available, you can download and use a separate Skin Editor program, provided by the developers.

Once you have a custom skin or face you'd like to use:

  1. Close Garden Paws if it is running.
  2. Navigate to the GP data folder:
         Windows: %AppData%\..\LocalLow\Bitten Toast Games\GardenPaws\Skins
         Mac: /Users/<you>/Library/Application Support/com.BittenToast.Gardenpaws/Skins
  3. If there is no Skins folder in the main GardenPaws folder, create one.
  4. Create another new folder inside the Skins folder, with the name of your skin. Make sure it is a unique name that won't conflict with another skin.
  5. Place your .png skin file inside the named folder. The path to your new skin file should look something like this: "..\Bitten Toast Games\GardenPaws\Skins\SkinName\SkinName.png"
    You will need to create a new folder for each specific skin file, or it will not show up in game.
  6. Relaunch Garden Paws.

For custom faces, follow the same as above but with a "Faces" folder instead of "Skins".

The new Skin or Face should now show up in the Customize Character menus, with the following differences:

  • Your skin will show up on all animal tabs, regardless of what base it was intended for.
  • Custom skins will not have the same "face" thumbnail as official skins, but will show the full png file instead.
  • Since the file is local, other players will not be able to see your custom skin. It will only be visible to you.
