    When I try to use FastDL for my server, It results to people who haven't joined the server before disconnecting due to missing map, even though I already synchronized all the files needed for fastDL including the map and it said Fast Download Synchronization successful. But yet people who haven't joined before can't join

    Mounting Addon 'rp_downtown_evilmelon_v2' (360661973)
    Download Failed!

    This is what happened, when the map tries to download, any idess?

    It's too big in file size.

    In my server.cfg I put sv_netmaxfilesize 60

    The map itself is 47MB

    Workshop has the flaw on dedicated servers of not being able to download addons bigger than 64MB.

    Just don't force clients to download it from the workshop when they join.

    Which is how?
    I'm kinda new to the downloads/server hosting.

    Remove it from your workshop collection and stick with a .bsp in the maps folder. Make sure this file is also synced with FastDL and sv_downloadurl is set.

    What if people still can't join?

    You also need a webserver to do a normal fastdl... If people still cant join its probably because you have not set up the folder structure of the fastDL correctly.

    What do you mean?
    I do have a web server.
    How do I set it up?

    The folder structure needs to be set up like you would find on a server, so you need a maps folder. You also then need to point the server to the right location.

    Pab what you want to do is download the map then use gmad to extract the folder. Go into the folder and grab the .bsp take that .bsp and then go to filezilla then navigate to garrysmod>maps.

    Drop your .bsp file into the maps folder.

    now you need to setup download for your clients create a file in garrysmod>lua>autorun>server

    called "resources.lua"

    in that file needs to be code that makes them download from the server:

    should look something like this

    Code (Text):

    --[[ Create recursive add file function ]]--

    local function AddDir(dir) --recursively adds everything in a directory to be downloaded by client
            local files, folders = file.Find(dir.."/*", "GAME")

            for _, fdir in pairs(folders) do
                    if fdir != ".svn" then // don't spam people with useless .svn folders
    --[[ Maps ]]--
