Sourcemod
  • Introduction

    Sourcemod is a modification for the Source Server that works on games such as TF2, L4D2 etc. It allows you to load addons such as administration plugins (banning, kicking etc), custom game modes and more. You can find a full in-depth guide here: http://wiki.alliedmods.net/index.php/Category:SourceMod_Documentation



    Installing Metamod

    To install Sourcemod you also need to install Metamod. You can find detailed instructions on installing Metamod here: http://wiki.alliedmods.net/Installing_Metamod:Source
    For now I'm going to give a simple guide in relation to the example in Source Dedicated Server
    1. Download Metamod from here: http://www.metamodsource.net/downloads/mmsource-1.8.7-linux.tar.gz
    2. Connect to the server via FTP
    3. Navigate to ~/tf2-main/orangebox/tf/
    4. Copy everything from the zip file into this folder. You should now have ~/tf2-main/orangebox/tf/addons/metamod/
    5. We now need to make a .vdf file to tell the game to load metamod. Go to the following link: http://www.metamodsource.net/?go=vdf and select the game (e.g. TF2).
    6. After you have generated the file from the above link, upload it to your server in the addons folder. It should look something like this: ~/tf2-main/orangebox/tf2/addons/metamod.vdf
    7. Done!



    Installing Sourcemod

    After Metamod is installed, Sourcemod is very simple to do:
    1. Download Sourcemod from the following link: http://www.sourcemod.net/downloads.php
    2. Upload the contents to ~/tf2-main/orangebox/tf/
    3. Sourcemod is now installed!



    Verifying the Installation

    You can check both Metamod and Sourcemod are properly installed by doing the following:
    1. Start your server
    2. Type meta version into the console. If it says unknown command, you need to check the Metamod installation
    3. Type sm version into the console. If it says unknown command, you need to check the Metamod installation
