Ability to update workshop items / mods

Post by the1trujok3r » Wed Feb 15, 2017 9:26 pm

With many games having mods in the steam workshop it would be nice to have an option for servers that support mods to also check and update mods / workshop items.

The largest to note would be ARK: Survival Evolved.

If not specific to the game / template is there currently a way to do this?

We want to move away from using Ark Server Manager which is for a local dedicated box to a control panel solution and have purchased 2 licences and looking to buy more but the ability to update mods / workshop items is crucial to running our environment.

I'll have to do some research on this, I'm not familiar with how workshop items and mod updates are pushed. If you have any info on where to start looking I'd greatly appreciate it.

Workshop items and mods can be downloaded using SteamCMD. It's quite simple. Example command:

Code: Select all

./steamcmd.sh +login anonymous +force_install_dir (path to mod location) +workshop_download_item (appid) (workshop_id) +quit
Two downsides to this:
  • Some games require you to login to steamCMD with an account that has a license for the game that the workshop item is for.
  • Some workshop items come packed up and need to be unpacked before the game will actually use them. Ark for example.
