lost files

In the process of fixing issues with my copy of GSB, I have caused a new one, I am missing a few simple text files. specifically my races file only includes 5 txt files (the originals and the tribe) instead of all of them minus parasites. The game is working fine, except only those races are available, but it shows all those expansions to be included on the front page. I dont know why it kept tribe. I’m also missing the ships files for a couple of the missing races, but not all of them. Ideas? (other than reinstall)

If you have the game through Steam, you can right click it in the library, click Properites, the Local Files tab, then click “verify file integrity” and it should re-download any files you are missing.
