Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Mods

Do I need to purchase any content for your mods to work?


While our mods are free, most of them do require official Downloadable Content (DLC) to work. Which content is required is always listed in the mod description in the Steam Workshop. In many cases, it is possible to install and use our mods without having all of the required content installed, but you can expect some error messages and issues along the way.




I get an unresolvable error while loading the cars or tracks.

I own all the required DLC, but I get an error saying “Missing unknown base mod”


This is a known issue of rFactor 2 and can be solved by uninstalling and/or unsubscribing from all mods that use the content that causes the error. Then restart the game and the content will now install correctly. Then you can resubscribe to and/or reinstall the mods and the error should be gone. If the above doesn't work, try following these steps:

  1. Close the game and go to the Steam desktop client
  2. Uninstall our mod by following steps 1 to 5 from solution number 2 above.
  3. Open your profile page and go to Inventory
  4. One by one click on the GTE cars > Show Workshop Item and unsubscribe and re-subscribe to them
  5. After starting the game again, it should reinstall all of the cars
  6. Now close the game and subscribe to our mod again
  7. Start the game and it should install correctly this time




I have the URD EGT Detroit, but I still get the "Missing unknown base mod" error when installing the Global Endurance Mod - Season 2018/19


With the release of the Global Endurance Mod - Season 2018/19 and the disbandment of the Ford GT Add-ons, we chose to only support V1.1 of the URD Detroit, because it's not doable for a small group to create and maintain 2 versions of a mod with this size and complexity. If you bought version 1.0 of the Detroit back in the day, you can contact URD to request the full version 1.1 package. Once you've installed that package, the Season 2018/19 mod will install correctly.
