You do not need to unzip your mods (unless you want to edit them in any way).
If you want to "re-zip" them you need to make sure that you do it correctly...

I read in another thread about this and the most common misstake seems to be that the "folder" is included in the zip-file.
When making the zip-file ... do not select the folder you want to zip ... instead, mark all the files (within the folder) and then create the zip-file.

I hope I am making any sense to you ... and that this helps.

@spauldinger94: welcome to the forum!

The best way to fix this is to download the zipped versions of the mods again, because in order to be able to use the mods in multiplayer games the zip files have to be the identical versions that your friends use. Even if you manage to re-zip the files so that they are useable in the game they most likely won't work in MP games because the new zip file is not the same as the original one you downloaded.

BTW. you can find some more info about using mods with the game in the following post: viewtopic.php?f=833&t=87820
