This article is about suggesting mods and plugins. If you want to suggest a modpack, check out this article: Suggesting new modpacks
If you want a mod or plugin to be added to the Aternos mod/plugin list, you can suggest it here.
To submit your suggestion, enter the URL of the mod/plugin and click the Suggest button. If the requirements are met, we will manually review your suggestion. This process might take a few days.
Mods/plugins have to meet certain requirements to be considered for Aternos.
Only mods/plugins that are hosted on a supported website can be added to Aternos. Supported websites currently are:
Mods/plugins should have reasonable popularity before they are added to Aternos. If a mod/plugin was published only a few days ago or only has a few downloads, it won't be added. There's no specific required download count for a mod or plugin, it's case by case decision that takes many different factors into account.
Mods/plugins should still be actively developed and receive updates regularly. If a mod/plugin has been discontinued or is only available for very outdated Minecraft versions, it won't be added.
Mods/Plugins must be downloadable directly from a supported website. If the mod/plugin links to an external downloads page, it can't be added to Aternos.
For example, if the download button for a plugin on spigotmc.org says "Download via external site", the plugin probably can't be added.
Some of the supported websites might offer paid mods/plugins. Only mods/plugins that are available for free can be added to Aternos.
Mods/Plugins need to have a detailed English description to be accepted. This can't be replaced by a YouTube video.
You can see all of your suggestions with their current status listed on the Suggest page.
A suggestion can have one of three different statuses:
The suggestion is waiting for manual review.
The suggestion was accepted and the mod/plugin is now available on Aternos.
The suggestion was denied.
Reasons for a mod/plugin being denied
If we deny a suggestion, we will always give a reason for our decision. If you are trying to suggest a mod/plugin that was already denied, no new suggestion will be created. Instead, you will be shown the reason for our previous decision.
The entered mod/plugin URL is invalid. Make sure that the URL works and that the mod/plugin is hosted on a supported website.
The suggested mod/plugin is not popular enough. See requirements.
The suggested mod/plugin is outdated or no longer receives updates. See requirements.
The suggested mod/plugin is not compatible with Aternos. For example, if a plugin requires an additional port, has a huge negative performance impact, or changes the online player count of a server, it can't be added.
The suggested mod/plugin can't be downloaded directly. See requirements.
The suggested mod/plugin can't be downloaded for free. See requirements.
The mod author disabled project distribution for this project, which means that it can't be downloaded outside the CurseForge/Overwolf ecosystem. You can read more about it here.
