When I create a server by SteamCMD, should I see my addons I subscribed? just like when I play an offline server? or my addons aren't active in the dedicated server?

Your addons are not active. You have to set up an addon collection for your server and set it so that it'll download and make people who connect use them. How you can set that up can be found here.

It basically is, get an apikey, create an addon collection and note down the collection's id and launch with +host_workshop_collection WORKSHOPID -authkey YOURKEYGOESHERE

  • @deadmanwalking78 that includes EVERYTHING. It'll be like vanilla gmod if you don't set it up- even TF2 etc. props won't show up.

  • Thanks<3 but I do that for every single addon? or I can do it once for all my subscribed addons? Commented Mar 5, 2016 at 16:00
  • @deadmanwalking78 you have to put your subbed addons to a collection, and do it just for that. You can use one by other people too though.
