Cannot get a mod to work - manifest.txt shows up as a folder and contains nothing

Hey, so i've been trying to install mods with a non-steam copy of the game recently. I've been using the steam online converter to download the .mod files and open them up. Some of them work fine and have a manifest.txt, but some of them have this folder thing that doesn't work. Image
This manifest.txt folder does not contain anything!
I would love to get some help soon, because some really useful mods are locked away from me due to this!

I happen to be running both of those mods in my Steam version of the game without issue. So most likely the problem is with the tool you're using to obtain the mods. I've tried downloading the power station mod right now through https://steamworkshopdownloader.io/ and it did work. So I'd say your best bet is to retry any mods that came out mangled.
