How to mount CSS to a Garry's Mod server

Sometimes you may need to use textures/files from Counter Strike Source in your Garry's Mod server.

How to mount CSS to a Garry's Mod server

Head over to the Plugins tab and click install next to 'Counter Strike: Source'

Once installed, locate the mount.cfg file in the garrysmod/cfg folder.

You will need to make the following changes to the file.

Remove the // from in front of "cstrike". These are "comment" characters, which tell the game to skip reading anything past the double //. So for the line to be used, they must be removed.

Change the file path name in the second quoted string to "/home/container/cstrike". Why does it need to be "/home/container/cstrike" when you don't see any folder called "home" or "container" on your server? Oh, they're there. Those folders are part of the backend system for Nodecraft that customers normally don't see (you normally don't need to deal with them, it's all handled automatically by our system). But in this one instance of adding CSS files to Garry's Mod, it's necessary for them to be in the filepath.

If the changes are all made correctly, if should look like the sample below, and you just need to save it.

Restart the server. You should now have CSS textures available on your Garry's Mod server using the "changelevel de_dust2" command.
