Most mods aren't map specific

Okey but they dont work, most are outdated according to g-portal...

Contact g-portal support with the mods that aren't being updated.

Cyberwolf, i work the forums for g-portal. All mods work on gportal that work anywhere else. its a matter of the age of the mods, if you are trying to add mods, look through the workshop for waht you want. there are after all so many mods that are now out of date.

Dont take their word for it.

Every single mod in the workshop has a "last updated" note on it.

also, this is just a warning, not a rule. any mod that is over 6 months since an update carries this warning.

I have never heard of a host restricting access to mods whether they work or not.

That end of things is 100% user discretion.

they dont, its just a warning.. thinking of it like an advisory...

some new server owners, who have never run a server before, will add mods from 2016, which arent really compatible anymore, might cause crashing etc etc, but the user will blame the hosting service before looking at the mod itself. Hence the warning.

What I mean by outdated is the delay in g-portal getting mod updates and getting them deployed to their customers. So server admins are stuck with their players getting mod mismatch due to having the newer version of the mod.

I ran a g-portal server for about a year before switching to a personal LAN server. Mods updates were 30 mins to a hour after the workshop updated.

You're now preaching to the faithful lol

I was talking to the OP :)

Sorry Vesuvius,

@kitsuneShiro, if the servers are hosted in ny, its instantaneous... and yes you ahve to wait a bit for the rest to update, but its far easier and faster than uploading via ftp like we used to do. Especially for admins like me, who live in australia and host in la.
