This mod is used for installing all of the template configuration and language changes needed by the NearDawn and NearDark templates. The mod also makes the changes that support left-side icon/link clustering, which used to be supported by the mod Icon Gravity.

  • A working TNG installation.
  • A backup of all affected files (see the list in the summary in the upper right corner of the page)


See the Wiki pages for NearDark or NearDawn for installation instructions. This mod only needs to be installed once, since it will make changes for both templates. Although this mod can be used without the NearDark or NearDawn templates, it is not recommended. Users wishing to get the benefit of left-side icon/link clustering should install the Icon Gravity mod by itself.

  1. Download the appropriate zip file as shown in the mod summary in the upper right corner of the page.
  2. Extract the file from the downloaded zip file into the mods folder or FTP the extracted file to your mods folder.
  3. Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the mod.
