Starting yesterday I was unable to access any of the addons I had downloaded. I was investigating this and realized that not only could I not access those addons I was not able to properly access the steam workshop through the ingame link. I had used this method to get my mods before and I just felt that I should report this bug and hopefully you have an answer for me. Sorry if this has been asked before.
Its an issue with your connection and not the game or workshop.
It is an issue with the game - it shouldn’t be preventing you from using addons when your connection cuts out or Steam takes the Workshop/Community down for maintenance.
