Forgive me if this has been answered already, I tried search multiple times and it returned a 503 Cloudflare host error.
I used to dev for a server community a couple years ago. After a long hiatus I took from the game, they recently reached out to me again to help migrate to a new NFO rental unit. Upon getting everything copied over and setting up the Workshop collection hosting, I noticed that the server started up very quickly on first launch… quicker than I remembered. I checked the FTP in the Addons folder and saw no .gma files. I looked through the console.log files and saw 100 instances similar to this, counting backward, differing for each addon:
Processing addon 100: Skeleton Player Model (104538509)... Addon up to date, mounted!
So I did a server-wide FTP search for files ending in .gma, and what I saw confused me. All of the Workshop files are now located in /garrysmod/cache/srcds instead of garrysmod/addons
Is this the new proper location of gma files? I mean… everything seems to be working fine, so if it’s malfunctioning I can’t really tell. I just can’t find anything through Google (and not here either since search failed me) referencing the change of directory structure for Workshop addon downloads.
