I was asked to pass this information along to you guys here.

When manually downloading a mod from Paradox Mods that has been publish or updated by using the uploader built into the launcher. That downloads in a zip file containing the loose files/folders. This requires a user to create a folder and .mod file for mods uploaded that way.
If mods are uploaded manually with already packed in a folder and beside a .mod file in a way that would be convenient for manual downloading, then it doesn't play well with the subscribe button.
I have also received reports on mods hosted on Paradox Mods that work perfectly well with the Steam version of the game not being able to load with the Game Pass version.

I really do like the implantation of Play Sets and can't wait to see wait to see the ability to use previous mod versions be extended to other games. However, it still needs some work before it becomes as user friendly as the steam workshop.

Time for another slightly delayed announcement - Launcher version 2020.12 has been released.

New stuff
  • MacOS: The launcher is now notarized by Apple, meaning we shouldn't pop confirmation dialogues quite so often. The launcher is now also half the size of previous versions.
  • A “reload installed mods” button has been added to the Manage Mods screen. It will reload the information from disk, or optionally re-fetch information from the Steam Workshop and Paradox Mods backends.
  • Games can now provide a diagnostic tool to help users troubleshoot why their game is crashing on launch. Of course, this require that game teams actually provide such diagnostic tooling, so you probably won't see it very soon.

  • Game Pass: We now shutdown the GDK gracefully, meaning we should generate less crash logs and traffic towards the Microsoft backend.
  • Sorting mods alphabetically did not work for games that had disabled mod load order, most notably HoI4.

From an implementers standpoint, the mac notarization took...quite some time. At least it's done and we can move on with our lives ;)

Well I mucked that up, didn't I ? Moved the above post to be in the more current thread, but I guess because it's older it went at the top here. I don't dare try and delete or move it back ... sorry @Deuterium Oxide !
