Hi lads, after seeing it mentioned a couple of times as a problem I looked into this a couple weeks ago and found a functioning workaround with some dedicated searching and the helpful documentation of others (shoutout to Roxette on the KSWH forums). Figured I should share my findings here as well. You can see how to do it at your choice of the:

Written guide ("master" version of the guide):

Video version:

Steam mirror of written version:

Basically you can use SteamCMD to package / update a VDF file outside of the native method available in RoN's own mod manager. This process can then also be used to easily update the contents or thumbnail of the mod later if you want to.

You can see the working thumbnails on my Workshop page. Until doing this research I had just shy of 0 RoN modding experience so I'm glad I could make a novel contribution that should help out other modders.
