Updating game via launcher causes mods to be removed

For some odd reason whenever I update the game via the launcher it removes any preinstalled mods. while not game breaking, it certainly is annoying

Hey, we’ve got a FAQ page with answers to questions this like:


The FAQ actually doesn’t answer this question though…

The reason the launcher scrubs pre-installed mods is because it overwrites the data\mods folder.

There’s another folder in the .exe’s root directory called mods. It shouldn’t have anything in it by default and if you put your mods there they shouldn’t get deleted.

so does that only apply to manually installed mods? I havent updated my game because of this
