How To Reset NSC

How To Reset New Ship Classes & More

This forum is to give instructions on how to hopefully avoid any issues with Steam partially downloading or not downloading the latest version of NSC after NSC is updated. We do not guarantee in any way, form, or fashion that these instructions will work 100% of the time, however, these instructions should work most of the time and give you the best opportunity to get the latest NSC files.


Reseting NSC – Short Version:
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 1: Go to one of these locations and delete the folder listed, depending on which version of NSC you are attempting to reset:

  1. NSC Main: Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\281990\683230077
  2. NSC Streamlined: Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\281990\932869910
  3. Playable Guardians Standalone: Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\281990\949022828

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.

Reseting NSC – Full Version:
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.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 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. 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.
