I've installed some gamemodes from the workshop but I have no idea how to get this in my server.

For example I get the gamemode Hide and Seek which gets put in the directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod\addons

So I copy the add on and paste it in my server hosting map which is in: C:\Users\Loko\Desktop\steamcmd\gmodserver\garrysmod\addons

Now I used steamcmd to host the server and use srcds.exe to host it.

enter image description here

Now I can host gamemodes such as TTT and prophunt but those aren't from the workshop. To change the gamemode I have to type in: gamemode terrortown or gamemode prop_hunt

Now I have no idea how to change it to hide and seek or murder or anything else from the workshop.


You can use an extractor tool, like the one that comes with Garry's Mod by default (official thread here) or you can host it without using an extractor by signing up for a Steam API key (you can get one here), creating a collection on the workshop which includes whatever addons/gamemodes you would like to host and finally, adding something like +host_workshop_collection COLLECTIONID -authkey APIKEY +gamemode GAMEMODENAME to the launch parameters.

You will have to replace COLLECTIONID with the ID found at the end of the URL for the collection you created, APIKEY with your Steam API key and GAMEMODENAME with the name of the gamemode you would like to run (eg. murder).


Gmad extractor

  1. Extract file
  2. Copy to server folder
