Game mode: All
Type of issue: Missing Mods
Server type: All
So I had an issue with a few mods, I went through the motions and ultimately read that I needed to delete them. Unsub and Resub the mods did not work, they remain in the steamapp folder as program artifacts. All Unsub does is prevent the mod from being updated. Thus I went in to the actual file location for the .pak files, and deleted them all directly. The thought was that the game would simply redownload them when it discovered they were missing. Common sense dont you think but NOPE?
I am currently subscribed to all the important Mods and they do not appear on SP or MP servers. I can download new Mods that I never Sub before but something is telling the game that the old Mods are already downloaded. Yet they are not in the folders. So instead of updating and replacing the files the server Mods read “NOT FOUND”
- Go to \Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\440900
- Delete everything
- Restart the game
- Find that you are still subscribed to but do not have access to your favorite Mods.
Yay for freeing up all that space from unwanted or unused mods, AKA unnecessary consumption of space via program artifacts.
Boo for not being able to play the game because the game cannot perform a simple check to see that a file is corrupt or missing.
I need to know what to delete or edit so that the game actually redownloads the missing Mods from the workshop.
Things I have already attempted
- Unsub / Resub
- Unsub / Restarting / Resub
- Unsub / Validate integrity / Restart Com / Resub
- Unsub / let Auto-Sub & Update do it
- Download Mods .pak = many dont have archive downloadable.
- Growned in frustration.
Thank you for any help.
