How To Reset New Ship Classes & More (Or Any Other Mod)
This “shorter” version is for those we are just looking for the quicker fix, and this should work for most users. If this doesn’t work, try the “Full Version” below.

Step 2: Unsubscribe/resubscribe to the mod whose’s folder you just deleted. This should force Steam to redownload the mod zip file. Now that there isn’t any zip to confuse Steam about needing a download or corrupting one, it should download a fresh, clean, up-to-date copy of the mod zip file.
This is the “hard core” reset for all your mods, basically with you removing all of them and refreshing all files. This takes some time, but it’s the best measure we know to guarantee you get the latest mod files from Steam and make sure your game working, short of uninstalling/reinstalling Stellaris.
Step 1: Go to: Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\281990. You’ll see either a few or a lot of numbered folders depending on the number of mods you have. Delete all of them.
Step 2: This shouldn’t be necessary, but to be absolutely sure, go to: Documents\Paradox Interactive\Stellaris\workshop\content\281990. Make sure it’s empty. If there are folders in here, delete all of them as well.
Step 3: Go to the Stellaris Steam Workshop, and on the main page, and beside your user avatar (image) should be “Your Files” with a down arrow. Select that down arrow and then select “Subscribed Items”. All your subscribed mods are here. Unsubscribe then resubscribe to each one in order, usually from last to first so they appear in the same order once finished. This takes time, but it should refresh all your mods.
Step 4: Final step to make absolutely sure this worked: Go back to your Steam Library page, right-click on Stellaris, select “properties”, select the “Local Files” tab at the top, and then push “Verify Integrity of Game Files”. You can also use this method in the “Short Version” instructions after Step 2 if you believe Steam isn’t downloading a fresh mod zip file for you.
Step 5: That should have forced Steam to redownload all your mods, and since you delete all the zips for them in steps 1-2, it should download without any issue, confusion, and hopefully without corruption.
