Is it just me or are a lot of the mods listed on the mod tab out of date. Most of them seem to go threads that haven't been updated in a year+.

I was using the CDDA Game Launcher and I accidentally clicked the "Restore Previous Version" button. >_<

When I launched the game all my current save data was goneO_O

It was several weeks worth of gameplay is there anyway to get it back? T_T

I think the launcher just deleted my files. What can I do?

The launcher goes to great lengths not to delete any file that could be important to you. Whenever it deletes files that could be important, it will prompt a confirmation from you. When doing an update or installing the game, it will move all files from the selected directory into the previous_version directory inside your game directory (unless you selected one of the settings to prevent that which is not the default behavior). When restoring the previous version, it will move all files from the selected directory into a temporary directory, it will move the previous version files into the selected directory and it will move the temporary files into the previous_version directory. This means that restoring your previous version twice should bring you back exactly where you were.
I've tried pressing the "Restore Previous Version" button again but it does not appear to bring back the saved game I was playing.

I think I've figured out my mistake.

After clicking "Restore Previous Version" I also clicked "Update Game" to bring the version of the game back up to the more recent release version.

The CDDA Game Launcher then replaced the game files and also the saved games being stored in the "Previous Version" directory with the ones that existed prior to the update. 

Thus I permanently replaced my more current saved games with the older ones from the last time I'd updated CDDA.

Although it is frustrating I don't think there is anything to be done about it except to start a new world and explore. ^_^
