How to add something from workshop to dedicated server?

^

If you want clients to get the models and sounds without having to subscribe, you have to decompile the workshop’s .gma file using some software that Garry doesn’t approve of (so it’s difficult to find links here as the threads are deleted) and then set it up as you would a FastDL. The link does show you how to set it up without FastDL, as to just mount it to the server, so people with the mod can see it, and if there are new models, people without it will see errors.

However, if the mod is purely lua, with no custom models or sounds, such as PAC3, all clients will be able to use and see it no problem, regardless of whether they have it or not.

Thanks but,

do you know if that is fixed already? Because the page was last updated in October

The limit has been increased, but I don’t know the exact new size restruction. There aren’t many mods that go above the new limit. I believe SCars Basic is the only one that does so, though Scars Slim and Extra do not. Neither do mods such as Silverlan’s NPCs or any of the large Siminov weapon packs.

Just put the workshop.vdf in your server with a workshop addon, if it’s too big, it’ll say “Download Failed,” and move on to the rest in the list.

ok, thanks a bunch dude! :>

Well, my code looks like this:


"addons"
{
    "1"        "105982362"    // GM_BigCity
    "2"        "104601200"    // Bone merger
    "3"        "108720350" // CS:S weps
    "4"        "104604943" // body group tool
    "5"        "109987740" // bigcity nite
    "6"        "105989066" // kjakariko
    "7"        "115352418" // lonlon
    "8"        "114991608" // modernweps part IIi 
    "9"        "114774852" // modern weps re up
    "10"    "114982884" // murder thon
    "11"    "114984820" // ditto
    "12"    "114986206" // ditto
    "13"    "104527283" // offset trails
    "14"    "104691717" // pac
    "15"    "104466547" // particel maker
    "16"    "106516163" // playX
    "17"    "104910430" // rape swep ( prolly dont work
    "18"    "104483020" // scars slim
    "19"    "104858249" // skypaint
    "20"    "104637365" // dragon shouts
    "21"    "104479831" // stackurrr
}


And I get an error like this,

https://dl.dropbox.com/u/62227821/erhhh.png

It only downloads like 4 addons. (Bone Merger, CS:S weapons, Bodygroup tool, bigcity night and bigcity.) Any help on this?

bumps :smiley:

Here’s the issue. If one addon is broken in the list, the subsequent ones won’t get loaded, but the broken one still will. For instance, here’s your list for example:


"addons"
{
    "1"        "105982362"    // GM_BigCity
    "2"        "104601200"    // Bone merger
    "3"        "108720350" // CS:S weps
    "4"        "104604943" // body group tool
    "5"        "109987740" // bigcity nite <-- Broken mod
                ^^^LOADED^^^
            \/\/\/ NOT LOADED \/\/\/
    "6"        "105989066" // kjakariko
    "7"        "115352418" // lonlon
    "8"        "114991608" // modernweps part IIi 
    "9"        "114774852" // modern weps re up
    "10"    "114982884" // murder thon
    "11"    "114984820" // ditto
    "12"    "114986206" // ditto
    "13"    "104527283" // offset trails
    "14"    "104691717" // pac
    "15"    "104466547" // particel maker
    "16"    "106516163" // playX
    "17"    "104910430" // rape swep ( prolly dont work
    "18"    "104483020" // scars slim
    "19"    "104858249" // skypaint
    "20"    "104637365" // dragon shouts
    "21"    "104479831" // stackurrr
}

Let’s assume Bigcity Night is broken, either it’s out of date, not properly set up, whatever the case may be, for some reason, certain addons won’t work on servers until their creator fixes them, which sometimes doesn’t happen. So what’ll happen is the first five addons will load, including the broken one, and the rest will not.

The solution? Well, if only one of the addons is broken, you can mount it last, and since no other addons come after the broken one, all of the listed addons will be mounted. Only issue is if there are more than one, but we’ll assume that Bigcity Night is the culprit, so just make that the 21st one and make stacker the 5th and see what happens.
