Hi all sorry to be a pain.
I want to create a dedicated server for my son and have the mods download automaticaly from server.
Now some of the mods are not on the workshop.
I have looked at this fastdl thing and am trying to avoid it at the moment though I do have a server at my house with win 2012 on it and I think its capable of running a HTTP file server of it using my home network for no cost other than electric.
BUT I am sure about a year ago I could plonk extracted workshop mods into the servers addons folder and it would all work fine and upload models,sounds etc etc.
but doing that now I if I join it shows a ton of models,textures etc etc downloading on the clients screen but when i get onto Gmod and go to say SProps tab on the left I dont actually see the models,icons etc.
But I can select one place it down etc but its invisiable.
is there realy no other way now other then this fastdl or is this not the issue seeing as I can actually select a part from SProps,and place it on the floor or drop it and see an impact as such but cant actually see the model in game nor in the SProps part screen its just all blank.
