    Hi there,

    I bought RF2 yesterday and played it all day today.
    Installed a couple of mods from the Steam workshop which worked great,

    But then i saw a KZ1 shifter kart mod for RF2 By @Gijs van Elderen .

    So i search a couple of videos on youtube on how to install mods from a third party website like RaceDepartment, They all started with the package map, - drop the RFCM file in there and let the Launcher download it.

    So i repeated that process and noticed that i had no packages map at all! (Steam Version btw)

    there were so packages file to from 0 to 6 but those files couldn't be opened since they were blank. Picture below VV

    Did i do something wrong?

    Thanks.

    Have a nice Christmas and a happy 2017!

    I installed rF2 for the first time yesterday & had to create a "Packages" folder to install downloaded mods into.

    I didn't have a package folder after converting to Steam but after subscribing to a few mods in Steam's workshop a package folder was then automatically created.

    I can't create a Packages folder because there are already 6 other standalone files which are named Packages_1 2 3 4 and so on.

    1. You could create the Package folder in any place on your HDD/SSD. Copy desired mode/track there.
    2.Open Launcher >> Content. You'll see the address of the current Package folder below.
    3. Press small "+" incon on the left of the address and chose your newly created folder.
    4. Press "Refresh List" button (just above the address on the right). After that you'll see your package files.
    5. Select all or one by one and press "Install" button. Done.

    I have rF2(Steam) installed on my SSD C: drive, and a packages folder (E:/packages) on another std. drive. As written above, just point the content loader to that drive. Saves a lot of memory on the SSD, of course.

    Update build 1108_1

    • Added an empty “Packages” folder to the dedicated server and to rFactor 2 itself. Both distributions were missing this folder, which caused some confusion.
