I have the following Problems:

1. i can't use the installed Addons because i don't see them in campeigns etc.

2. I want to change the standart pathes, because i don't want the save dir in f:\saves. The addons also are installed in the drive root f:\, thats of course isn't very practicle.

Hope someone can help me.

Bye

In your Steam library, right click on the game > Properties > General tab > SET LAUNCH OPTIONS, then in the text box enter:
%command% --userconfig-dir "F:/your/path/here" --userdata-dir "F:/your/path/here"
but replacing "F:/your/path/here" with the folder you want to use.
