Where do I place this?

Hello. I have a map I would like to use for my gamemode. The problem is when people join the game they get disconnected because “they don’t own the map”. Where do I place the map file so it downloads whenever they join? I don’t know if this is the right section or not so if it ain’t the right section then please move it.

Stick it into your fastDL in the maps folder.

fastDL? Can you please explain what fastDL is?

ugh beginners… first you posted in the wrong section

Not very helpful camcole, even if it’s in the wrong section.

If clients aren’t dling the map it is either not on the server or you don’t have your server’s fastdl working properly.

  1. Make sure that the map is in your garrysmod/maps dir of your server.
  2. If you are using fastdl make sure the server is connected correctly using http://wiki.garrysmod.com/?title=Setting_up_sv_downloadurl
