Launcher icon not there when importing a .desktop file from 18.2 to 18.3

Can the subject line be any more specific?

So I installed Mint KDE 18.3 alongside my existing 18.2. I imported my ~/username/.local/applications folder which contains a number of custom launchers I have been using for like ever, along with the ~/username/.icons folder which contains the .png icon files which said launchers point to.

When I drop one of these launchers onto my desktop, though, I get the name, but no icon. The launcher is referring to a valid icon... what gives?
Try politeness; people will like you for it.
