    I'm getting an error with a Porsche and three other cars when I start the game and it goes to syncing content. The Porsche,Vette,Oreca, and BMW GTE cars fail to install with the unknown base mod error. They all are looking to install with a version with the lm at the end. I had the same with the regular cars and had to look in the Steam Library/workshop/content to find the rfcmp and put it in the package folder.
    The error with the Porsche is for v.1.832lm. Needs base mod v.1.823lm. The other cars have the same type error syncing.
    Any ideas?
    I have done the unsub/resub a few times.

    I'm beginning to think this is a Steam problem. I found all the files in my workshop/content folder, but the versions with the lm at the end won't install.

    If you install a custom skins package from another league, you must undo the package and then unsubscribe from the vehicle

    Thank you for your reply juanchioooo. I have a brand new install, no skins at all.

    Thank you, I've done that. I found the files in the SteamLibrary/steamapps/Workshop/Content folder and moved the rfcmp to the packages folder and installed from there.

    Unsubscribe from the srca version, make sure the original is working first, then re-subscribe to it.

    I've got three posts bookmarked. Whenever I see questions like the above, I post one of those links. I wouldn't in a million years remember that I even started this thread. lol. I got tired of trying to write the explanation, then I got tired trying to find my original posts so I finally just bookmarked them all.(beta, dlc, video settings). If those don't work, then I can actually read the dang post ;)

    Thank you for your answers.
    As i've written i already tried everything from this thread without success
    Finally it seems that it helped deleting "Skins"-Folders which were here:
    \Steam\steamapps\common\rFactor 2\Packages

    The strangest little things seem to get under the skin of rF2 from time to time and a perfectly happy install just goes to he77. I'm pleased you found a solution and thanks for posting the way you solved it also.
