    First time I've experienced this, but now I am struggling with paid content, e.g the Q2 BTCC cars.

    Also, how do I unsubscribe to a workshop item now? This is all I get...

    EDIT: Man, I thought it was just the BTCC Q2 cars, but it's a random selection of Endurance Pack cars, the Formula E car as well... With no way to actually unsubscribe I am at a total loss of what to do.

    all the DLC cars and probably more have this issue. It is due to STEAM changing the way the inventory is accounted for. This has been a growing issue for several months. As of yet, S397 has not been able to fix this problem. If you are having issues with cars you can try deleting the vehicle folders inside the INSTALLED/VEHICLES folder. Some users have stated you have to get to the Steam inventory folders which are only numbered.
    Perhaps that might be a good community project. Catalogue all the Steam folders and identify which carset is residing within.

    I got it to work by validating files every time there is an update. Fun side effect... I now keep old versions as well. Like the rF2 and rF2 related folders aren't taking up space as it is!

    You can unsubscribe by deleting the various BTCC car folders inside the rfactor2/installed/vehicles. However, you won't get v1.0 back when you do, I think all the BTCC cars & tracks have been updated so the original versions won't re-install, you will only get the most recent version. You may have to unsubscribe from the CS_ (someidentifyingtext) event that used those cars and register into a new series.

    I have the same problem with Formula Pro and I cannot unsuscribe in the workshop (same error as in quoted screenshot). I have deleted folder from Installed and it does nothing, now I don't even have the previous version.

    Find the FPro in the steam workshop folder (its folder name will match its steam id; or search the whole workshop folder for the car name) and delete the file there. Start rF2 so it uninstalls (you may need to remove any events that use it). Then verify rF2 files in steam to download the car again. Start rF2 again to install it.

    Sometimes this all happens to me too o_O

    I noticed, that some Workshop items refer their Update to an older version.:oops:
    But very unlucky (quick and dirty) some modder name their update “XXXX.rfcmp”, same as their older version, without a “version- indication”.
    That overwrites the older version and from this point it’s impossible to install them again, if both versions are deinstalled, because the older version is lost.

    My two workarounds::)
    - (very time consuming): rename conflicting “XXXX.rfcmp” to “XXXX_Vyyy.rfcmp”
    - (very space consuming): Backup of all versions in “..\common\rFactor 2\Installed”

    Thanks, I deleted the workshop folder but I hadn't verified the files. After verifying, it has downloaded the latest version.

    PS: This also happened at least to 1 other member in our league, this had never happen before... I say it in case someone wants to check how the item is updating in steam....

    I don't have to delete them if I try to verify the files.
    It's just very time consuming to have to do this for what seems to be every DLC atm.
