Subscribing to mod downloads it in theory. In practice, the Workshop sometimes doesn't download subscribed mods immediately, if at all, and so there is the direct download in the top post if this is the case for you.

The direct download is missing the .mod files.

Edit: I did notice it was claimed to be somewhere in the folder itself, but I was unable to find it. Not sure if that's because it's hidden in a load of subfolders or it was simply forgotten to be included?

it crashes when you select religion
Could you clarify what you mean by that?

The download I literally just grabbed from this post doesn't contain the same things as that screenshot you just posted. There is no Class Features.txt, EK021.mod, or Mechanics_for_EK.rtf.

Edit: How do I attach a screenshot so I can show you what I'm talking about? I wish it was simply that I was too stupid to see it the first time, but that is really not the case.

As you can see, there are discrepancies between the images that I cannot explain, perhaps you could illuminate me.
