GMOD Server Update files

Hello everyone, I have a question: Is it possible to make the client download a file that it already has? (Because some users have outdated files)

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

Only via workshop, and that’s presuming the files don’t already exist on the client.

A server will always send their version of a .gma to a client regardless if they already have it or not.

However if the client already has a file (eg a .mdl), last time I checked that file took priority.

Yeah, but they still have to download it.
