I am not certain but I think I heard somewhere that for a Mac they need unzipped then rezipped.  If this not true then somebody please correct me.

The unzip & rezip thing is more for texture issues, but it may be of use in this case. Wooly, have you any mods downloaded directly from the Giants mod hub? And, are they doing the same thing? Also, are you selecting your mods before you start the game on the mod selection screen?

Okay. So none of the mods you provided as examples are being loaded by the game, or else they'd show there. Are you absolutely sure you put them in the right place? If there is an issue with why the mod can't be loaded, the game is really good about throwing an error for it.

Try a new save game with one of the stock maps and only one of the mods giving you trouble, and re-post your log.
