Download Links, Map Links, and Server Info

INFORMATION - READ ME FIRST
There are a minimum of three downloads you need to install to cover 95% of content used on the server, the bulk of it will be auto-downloaded when you join the server. As such, make sure you have "Allow all custom files from server" selected in the Multiplayer tab of the in game Options menu. Each addon has multiple download methods, and a short description for each.
Only install one from each section, they are all (mostly) the same content.


SBEP (Spacebuild Enhancement Pack) - REQUIRED
Contains a lot of models used for constructing spaceships, bases and more. If you do not install this, almost every ship you see will be a cloud of errors.
Workshop Link - Rejoin Required
Easiest install method, but not 100% reliable.
Git .zip download - Game Restart Required
Requires manual installation, and can not be updated without redownloading, but does not require any knowledge of Git.
Unzip the 'sbep-master.zip' archive and move the produced 'sbep-master' folder into "<Steam Library Location>\steamapps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod\addons"
Git HTTPs Clone URL - Game Restart Required
https://github.com/spacebuild/sbep.git
The recommended method, as it is the easiest to update. If you're not already familiar with Git, you can refer to this tutorial. Clone into "<Steam Library Location>\steamapps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod\addons"


SBEP Spawnlists - RECOMMENDED
The workshop download in particular gives single a basically unusable list with every model in, so to make building your own ship much easier, you will want these spawnlists.
Spawnlist Fix .zip download - No Restart or Rejoin Required
Extract the 'spawnlists.zip' and merge the produced 'data' folder with the data folder in "<Steam Library Location>\steamapps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod", letting it overwrite any changes, though there should be none. There should then be a folder in 'garrysmod\data\' called 'sbep', and a folder in there called 'modellists'


Maps - RECOMMENDED
The server has an active map-rotater that cycles through a number of maps to keep things fresh, so to avoid being disconnected with 'Map Missing' when a rotate goes through you should download the full collection.
Workshop Collection - Rejoin Required
Easiest install, but not every map is available on the workshop. Missing is: sb_spacewar_v6.
Maps zip Archive (MEGA) - Game Restart Required
Faster download, but the file is larger by about 100MB. Once downloaded, unzip, then take the three folders produced, 'maps', 'materials' and 'models' and drag them all into "<Steam Library Location>\steamapps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod", merging them with the existing folders.
Maps 7zip Archive - Game Restart Required
Slower download, but smaller compressed file. You will need 7zip or WinRAR to extract it, then follow the same install guide as above.


Workshop Addons - RECOMMENDED
These are automatically downloaded to your client, but subscribing to them will give them their own sections under Browse - Addons, which makes it a lot easier to find the models.
Diaspora Content
Diaspora Content 2
Diaspora SB3
SProps Workshop Edition
Wiremod
Sci-fi Props Megapack


CAP (Carter's Addon Pack) - OPTIONAL
A very large model pack (2.5GB) of Stargate themed models, materials and sounds. These can come in handy for more creative spaceships, but since they are not very commonly used, you don't need to download this pack unless you really like Stargate or really hate seeing errors.
SVN Checkout Link - Game Restart Required
http://carterspack.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/carterspack/cap_resources
SVN (Subversion) is the only way to download the version of CAP we have, so if you've not used it before, you can follow this tutorial:
  • Get the latest version of TortoiseSVN from their website: http://TortoiseSVN.net and install it.
  • Go to your addons folder, right click an empty space, and select "SVN Checkout"
  • Put one of the below links in the URL field
  • For SBEP, Spacebuild3, and Wire, replace the text "master" in the Checkout Directory field with the name of the addon.
  • Make sure HEAD revision is selected, and press OK. This will download the addon.
OR watch this tutorial video. It was recorded back when Wire and SBEP were distributed through SVN, but the same method is needed to install CAP.

    I've updated some download links, as well as cleaned up the thread.

    gooniverse is on workshop, so we dont have to go to garry'smod.org- I hate the login on there as it says "this account does not exist!" no matter what I put in.
    No one here really supports the workshop, its kinda crappy for a lot of reasons. Go read the TOS for uploading to the workshop, valve basically says "If you upload something here, you have to give us ownership of it so we can do whatever we want with it, including selling it for profit without asking you." so preferably just use garrysmod.org or get it from our fastdl like almost everyone who joins the server recently.

    The tutorial is kinda, uh... well its shit. You need to install each of those addons to a separate folder, you can't just dump all the svns in addons, it will try to checkout to the master folder and tortoise will be stupid and not do it.

    Whoever added the widget for the Build Server #3, the one that is now Waterbuild, never thought to add the server to Gametracker, leaving a derped widget. So I went ahead and did that, now we have stats.
    Hurray.

    Lambda217: oh oh i am kanzuke and i love my little pony and now i'll make all the brandonphysics myself cause i know fuckin everything because now i'll make a big pony fighter drone squad and a big fuckin portal ship and i am a fuckin idiot

    Thats been there for ages, was originally for factional warfare. Gametracker automatically adds servers after being up for a couple days btw.

    Please edit some outdated links like SpaceBuild 3 and stuff (or maybe my firewalls are blocking it).

    All of the links are current, we update them whenever they change.

    Yeah nevermind my foolishness, I just found out about the GIT method and I'm using it right now. It works
    way better and faster than SVN.

    Thanks you for your offer, I'll look at it.

    Readding Sb_LostInSpace. Found a working version of that map. :D

    EDIT: Also fixed Server #2's readout display, nobody ever updated it after the move.

    garrysmod.org is offline. Recommend mirroring all the maps from the server maps folder somewhere else, as I cannot join the server (stupid gmod never simply downloads when I join the server. And yes, I checked my download settings. It SHOULD download them.) without them.

    CAP SVN link doesn't work. Got any alternate links or tell me exactly what it is so i could download it from somewhere else?
  • LtBrandonLtBrandon Posts: 506Registered, Administrator

    I'll try to get an alternative download up tonight, no other download will work right now because the server uses a really old version which isn't compatible with the newer one. Not many people use CAP as far as I know, so tbh it has a chance of being removed due to its massive size for a gmod addon. If I remember right its something like 5GB on disk, so we could replace that with a lot of other highly requested addons like SProps or any number of other things. I might throw up a poll to see what people think about swapping it for other addons in a few days.

    tl;dr: There is no alternative download, will try to get you one soon.

    If it's not required then i can live without it. I was just making sure that i had everything to run the servers without any problems. Take your time on the file uploading. Thanks for responding.
