How to Automatically have Players Download Workshop Addons When They Join Your Server

When you have added add-ons to your server, you also want to have those automatically downloaded to the players joining. This can be done by providing the IDs of the addons.


  1. Login to your pterodactyl panel.
  2. Click on Your Server > File Manager tab at the top or if you want to connect via an FTP, click on Settings to view your FTP information.
  3. Navigate to garrysmod/lua/autorun/server/.
  4. Edit the file workshop.lua or create it if it doesn't exist.
  5. In this file you want to add the IDs of the addons you want the clients to download in the following format: resource.AddWorkshop("123456789") or if you would like to add an entire collection use this handy tool Workshop.lua Generator.
  6. Save the file and restart your server for changes to apply.
