    Hi, like written in the headline Steam is acutally downloading the whole rFactor2 content again without any changes made by me. Whats the reason for that?

    Sorry, but I can't see any connection to my question.

    I can´t see any reason why Steam is downloading the whole content today again, something what was downloaded in the past.

    What's funny about that? Maybe I don't understand something wrong here, English is not my native language, but I've been sitting here for hours now and waiting for more hours to download workshop content that should have been on my hard drive for a long time. I just want to know what's changed since yesterday. I haven't changed anything on my PC, rFactor2 is always up to date, so I would like to know if there are any errors.

    When was the last time you ran rFactor 2? We did migrate workshop content but that was a couple of weeks ago.

    I ran it yesterday the last time without any problems.
    I subscribed to the Flat 6 4.0 Mod yesterday it was downloaded and today it is available for download again.
    Maybe the migration was delayed in my case`?

    Same thing happened to me yesterday, and when I got tired of waiting because you cannot see what it is downloading, I restarted rf2 with no downloading continuing. Strange.. I was expecting the flat six mod to update but it took forever to complete, yet installed perfectly after reboot.
