So I want to put sv_cheats 1 on my server on gmod but when I do everyone can use it. Is there anyway only the creator of the server can be the only one to use the cheats?

1 Answer 1


sv_cheats is a server side flag. That means it's set for everyone that connects to the server, no exceptions. You likely want to do some investigation into Admin Mods like ULX and Evolve which can give you cheat like abilities but only for "Administrator" users you choose.

  • Will ULX and Evolve work for non dedicated servers? My server uses hamachi Jan 27, 2015 at 22:36
  • Listen servers will work, most of the time it's simpler since by default the owner of the listen server will be set as an admin.

  • Is ULX and evolve an add on or is it something you have to download (like a .exe) Jan 27, 2015 at 22:39
  • You will have to download it and install it. There are numerous guides and YouTube videos detailing how to install and setup the mod.
