It's frag time!
This repository aims to provide ready to play dedicated server docker images for the most popular Valve games.
docker run -d -p 27000-27015:27000-27015/udp -p 27015:27015 inanimate/steamcmd-play:css will launch a Counter-Strike: Source dedicated server ready for you and your friends to join.
Note: This project is still a WIP. Most games should work just as intended/documented, but some may not. Please open an issue or submit a pull request if you find problems! Thanks!
The following table shows a list of the currently generated images. The first two column's are all you need to know to pick your Friday Night Delight :)
|Game Name||Tag Name||Engine||Launch Name||App ID|
|Counter-Strike: Global Offensive||csgo||Source||csgo||740|
|Day of Defeat: Source||dods||Source||dod||232290|
|Half-Life 2: Deathmatch||hl2dm||Source||hl2mp||232370|
|Half-Life Deathmatch: Source||hldms||Source||hl1mp||255470|
|Left 4 Dead 2||l4d2||Source||left4dead2||222860|
|Left 4 Dead||l4d||Source||left4dead||222840|
|Team Fortress 2||tf2||Source||tf||232250|
All you need to do is select the game you want to host, find it's associated tag, and:
docker run -d -p 27000-27015:27000-27015/udp -p 27015:27015 inanimate/steamcmd-play:<tag>
The container will then launch, the dedicated server will start, and you're ready to join up, suit up, and fight!
You can also keep local cache with steamcache, which makes LAN'ing even better!
Useful startup options
srcds is pretty awesome, you can easily pass command line options to the server daemon. Here are a few useful examples:
docker run -p 27000-27015:27000-27015/udp -p 27015:27015 -d inanimate/steamcmd-play:css +sv_lan 1 +map de_dust2 +rcon_password awesomepassword
docker run -p 27000-27015:27000-27015/udp -p 27015:27015 -d inanimate/steamcmd-play:css +sv_lan 1 +map de_dust2 +rcon_password lolcakes +maxplayers 6 +hostname "SuperCool CSS Server"
Keep in mind when you define your own options, they replace the default CMD I configured for you in the Dockerfile!
How is this done?
Basically, I generate a base container (with steamcmd) that specific game Dockerfile's inherit from. I then set the necessary variables in each game specific Dockerfile and an image gets built downloading the necessary data from Steam. After that, I ensure to set a baseline config by providing the bare minimum options via the proper launch command to ensure the server is ready to join on container launch.
Other ready to play games?
I've found, forked, and tuned other popular games in docker image form!
