If I try any method, they re-install themselves.
Theres sometimes a few things you have to do:
- Un-sub in workshop and then close steam.
- Go to your gmod folder and look for “addons” folder and remove any addons in here you don’t want.
- Go into your gmod folder and look for “download” (or Downloads) and you are looking for anything that has a long number and GMA on the end e.g. 29293323.gma and delete the gma files with a number that matches the addon ID (Number in the URL at the top of each of the addons workshop page)
- Start steam up.
When you sub to workshop addons they end up in your addons folder, when you join a server, even if you HAVE the addon subbed already, workshop forces another download and stores it in one of the downloads folders.
I assume this occurs to stop people modifying the GMA’s and then using them in-game or similar.
