[EGS/DEDI/WINDOWS] Downloading mods from steam

With the release of Conan Exiles on the Epic Games Store I thought I would post a little how-to for downloading mods from steam to use with the EGS version of the game, this script uses steams “anonymous” login feature to connect to steam and download workshop files (this is how server hosts install mods without owning a copy of the game on steam).

Note:
The “first” time you execute the script “SteamCMD” will download a copy of steam to “WorkshopDownloadScript\Steam”, this version of steam is actually what will download the workshop files and can be deleted after the script has completed, luckily steam is only around 200mb so it’s not too much hassle =)

Instructions.

  1. Download and extract WorkshopDownloadScript.
    WorkshopDownloader.zip

  2. Download SteamCMD from Valve
    SteamCMD - Valve Developer Community

  3. Copy “steamcmd.exe” to “WorkshopDownloadScript\Steam”

  4. Add workshop item ID’s to “ModIDs.txt” file, one ID per line
    see example file.
    3

  5. execute “Run.bat”


    Once steam has finished downloading the workshop files it will magically open the folder which is located “WorkshopDownloadScript\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\440900”

The bat script is pretty straight forward and easy to read if you wish to check it before using, it simply phrases ModIDs.txt and send cmds to “SteamCMD”

Mod ItemID can be found in the mod page link using a browser:

e.g. Less Building Placement Restrictions - ID 1369743238

https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1369743238

If you are using the app, you will need to activate Steam->Settings->Interface->“Display web address bars when available” in order to display the ID:
