We appreciate their input and are working on fixing this as soon as possible. In the meantime, we advise everyone to refrain from using files obtained from unknown sources. Anyone who plans to use mods or custom saves for Cyberpunk 2077 should use caution until we release the aforementioned fix.
Essentially, CDPR suggest that people avoid downloading mods from unknown sources until they've fixed the issue.
