Treat it the same way you did corrupted resources
Under the hood, patching goes like this...
- If backups don't already exist, FTL's dats are copied to GMM/backup/.
- The backups are unpacked to a temp folder, and mods are added. Then FTL's dats get replaced.
When backups are created, there's an assumption that FTL wasn't already modded at the time. They're treated as if they were vanilla, to repeatedly clobber FTL's resources every time you patch.
When you patch with no mods selected, the 'vanilla' backup dats are simply copied into FTL.
This is why when there's corruption, or an FTL upgrade, GMM/backup/ needs to be cleared out, so new backups can be made. But if cleared at any other time, you risk having 'unremovable' mods.
