Okay so first off I'm not a modder so I'm not familiar with them on a technical level, but I've run into some issues with them on the mod manager that are rather confusing, so I'm looking for some clarification here.
So recently I went through the mods I was subscribed to on Steam and unsubscribed from many. Now in the mod manager those mods are still there, and I cannot delete them like I can the other mods that I'm still subscribed too; what is weirder is that it shows that I am the creator of them and may upload them to the workshop. Now my question is are the files for these exclusively located in the games data folder, and will deleting them directly file by file have any unforeseen consequences on the vanilla files? (I absolutely do not want to go through the process of reinstalling with my current wifi connection, God forbid.) Forgive me if this comes across as obtuse, I just don't want to take any risks here.
