This guide is provide by Shutnik.

Step 1. Create Folder

Open your dota 2 folder, go to:
Steam > steamapps > common > dota 2 beta > game > and create new folder with any name you want. For example let me use "dota2mods" folder.
dota2mods folder

Step 2. Edit

Go to Steam > steamapps > common > dota 2 beta > game > dota > and search file with a name "" and open it with notepad++. Look carefully at red box, add with your mods folder name whatever it is.
*Note : every big update / verify cache, you should change it again. So you better keep the 2nd one in other folder.

Step 3. Download VPK Creator and Mod

Download -->> VPK Creator and extract it.
Look up the folder named "pak01_dir" > and Paste any mods (materials, models, particles, sound, etc) that you can download for sample from Sven - Arms of Rising Fury, Invoker - Dark Artistry or Shadow Fiend Arcana mod inside it.

Step 4. Create pak01_dir.vpk

After all mods are placed in pak01_dir folder, back to VPK Creator folder and double click "Create vpk-archive from pak01_dir folder.bat". It will create pak01_dir.vpk.

Step 5. Copy pak01_dir.vpk to folder

Cut or Copy "pak01_dir.vpk" to dota2mods folder that already you've created before at Step 1. Run Dota 2 Reborn and Have Fun guys.
