Ok, there should be this:

- One oceania.dm file in mod folder
- mod\oceania folder with pictures in it.
- mod\oceania\oceandata with more pictures in it

No: On my machine its "dom2/mods/" rather than "dom2/mod/". Be aware of the "s".

However, installing the required latest patch should create the "mods" folder anyway.

You are correct, it's mods not mod. My bad.

Hmm, there is still one problem I can think of, which I once suffered myself:

I once installed Dom2 on my Linux machine globally as root. Forgot about it (because of non-functional OpenGL drivers at that time - never ATI-grahpics for a Linux Laptops again ) and installed it later on again locally.

Afterwards mods would not be recognized, since I was installing them in my local installation while entering dom2 on the commandline would run the global installtion, which thus missed the new files...

So do other mods work for you or is it just a problem with oceania? What is the version shown in the main menu?

Another thing to check that I've run into before, when you start the game and look at the mod preferences, the list is limited to the number of mods it can list - I think it's 50. Anything beyond the 50th mod just doesn't show up in the list. Depending on how many you have, you might have to temporarily remove a few from the folder to see those at the bottom of the list.

It seemed wild to me at first that Dom2 has as many mods as it does, but there are more avaiable than the list can handle at one time. =) That's what happened to me with the Shepherds of Creation mod. I had thought something was broken or I had done something wrong because it wouldn't show up in the preferences list. but after I did a little house cleaning on old mods, there it was. =)
