Ive got everything working for the most part, but i feel like ive set up a few things incorrectly. (Or at least, I dont know if I’ve set them up efficiently).
Currently I add every swep icon, model and sound i add to the server, to downloads.txt.
Is this necessary/excessive?
Also, Ive had to add some models to my resource.AddFile lua script to make the models show up without errors in game.
Whats the difference between adding a file to downloads.txt, and adding it to the resource.AddFile script?
Finally, I have FastDL set up and running, but im not sure if theres more i can do to speed it up.
Ive read about zipping files into .bzip to speed up the download, but im confused as to how to do it.
Should i just zip the files, and place them right back where they were in the server folder structure and delete the original files?
Thanks for any help, i know the answers to these questions are probably obvious to some of you but im just starting out here.
