Workshop Content not downloading.

Post by toka » Tue Jan 15, 2019 2:12 pm

My workshop content is not downloading to users. i have the correct workshop ID set but when a user joins my server, they do not download the workshop content. Any clue on how to fix this ?

Are you certain that the workshop content is still available? Are you seeing an error in the client console?

You'll definitely want to make sure that the collection is public, and published. You'll also need to create the .lua file for the workshop that we outline here: viewtopic.php?f=65&t=7337

After testing those, if you're on a standard game server, or one on a managed VDS/full machine, please open a help request on the Help! tab of your game server control panel and we'll be happy to take a look.

To make sure you download content, make a resources.lua file in the following directory:

Garrysmod/lua/autorun/server/

And inside you'd want to add these lines for your addons:

resource.AddWorkshop( '128089118' ) -- M9K Assault Rifles

the number being the id in the URL of your addon on the workshop :)
hope this helps ya
