Clients aren't downloading the map.

This must sound like a pretty noobie help post huh, well you maybe right…

I’ve download a rp_downtown map and have extracted its one map file and placed it inside of my “map” folder within the server and fastdl synced it… What do i do now? people still cant download the map.

This is the workshop addon. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=452404339&searchtext=rp_downtown_v4c

What error are they getting?

Make sure you also have the filling in your cfg/server.cfg


sv_downloadurl "http://mywebsite.com/fastdl/"

It should go to the directory where maps/, materials/, and models/ are.

http://forums.tf2maps.net/showthread.php?t=18108 see if making a bz2 of the .bsp helps

Would “mywebsite.com” be the ftp ip or server ip? they’re both the same just different ports, or will i need to ask my server host for the infomation?

That look right?

sv_downloadurl “ftp://CallumC@37.59.56.62:8821/37.59.56.62_27015/garrysmod

No it would be a legit website like http://google.com/fastd/
Add me on Steam and I could further explain it if you want.

Yes please thank you :slight_smile:
