Can't get addons to work on dedicated server

Hello everyone, I’m renting a dedicated server and I can’t seem to get the workshop addons to work.

Here is my .vdf


"addons"{
	"1"		"104601200"	// bone_merger
	"2"		"104502728"	// firearms_source_weapons_for_gmod_13
	"3"		"104619813"	// half-life_2_tools
	"4"		"108424005"	// keypad_tool_+_cracker
	"5"		"104491619"	// metropolice_pack_(npcs__playermodels)
	"6"		"104486597"	// npc_tools
	"7"		"104527283"	// offset_trails
	"8"		"104482086"	// playx_2.6_by_sk89
	"9"		"104771157"	// precision_0.97
	"10"		"111577224"	// re-located_stools
	"11"		"104702792"	// rp_downtown_winter_v2
	"12"		"104487316"	// rp_evocity_v2d
	"13"		"104492363"	// scars_basic
	"14"		"104483020"	// scars_extra
	"15"		"104815552"	// scars_slim
	"16"		"104479831"	// stacker_stool
}

I’ve also uploaded .gma files for the addons over 64mb due to the problem noted on the wiki.

When I go in to my server it just does not show any of the custom content. What do?

I don’t know if this makes a difference in whatever language the VDF is run from, but your bracket is in the wrong place. Try this


"addons"
{
	"1"		"104601200"	// bone_merger
	"2"		"104502728"	// firearms_source_weapons_for_gmod_13
	"3"		"104619813"	// half-life_2_tools
	"4"		"108424005"	// keypad_tool_+_cracker
	"5"		"104491619"	// metropolice_pack_(npcs__playermodels)
	"6"		"104486597"	// npc_tools
	"7"		"104527283"	// offset_trails
	"8"		"104482086"	// playx_2.6_by_sk89
	"9"		"104771157"	// precision_0.97
	"10"		"111577224"	// re-located_stools
	"11"		"104702792"	// rp_downtown_winter_v2
	"12"		"104487316"	// rp_evocity_v2d
	"13"		"104492363"	// scars_basic
	"14"		"104483020"	// scars_extra
	"15"		"104815552"	// scars_slim
	"16"		"104479831"	// stacker_stool
}

I managed to get a majority of them working.

Just a question, I see you have scars there, How do you make it so that scars downloads faster? It will take my clients a long time to download them. Do you have fastdl? Thanks.

My personal two cents would be not to have your clients force download addons anyways, it’s why I set my download filter to none. Considering scars is in the workshop, I’m sure people would much rather get the whole pack and have the functionality when they play single player versus being forced to download materials, models, sounds, and scripts. Especially if people server hop, downloading files gets quite redundant
