Introduction

After the great summer of 2013 we brought CAP slowly but in its entirety to the Steam Workshop! Now you can profit from automatic updates by simply subscribing to the collection.

Carters Addon Pack Installation

Steam Workshop

The only thing you have to do with the Steam Workshop Version of the Carter Addons Pack is go to the Steam Workshop Collection which can be found here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=180077636

Then simply press the button labeled as "Subscribe to All" located under the description to subscribe to the entire collection.

You now have successfully installed the Carter Addons Pack. But do not get too hasty as you still require the Wiremod addon. More information about this addon can be found in the Wiremod section below.

Side Note: For some Linux Distro users the fonts via Workshop still does not work, so for those they still require to download and install them system-wide manually. These fonts can be downloaded from: https://github.com/RafaelDeJongh/cap_fonts

GitHub

To download the Carter Addon Pack via GitHub, you will first need to install the GitHub Native Application. You can download this for Windows here: windows.github.com

An alternative would be to download the whole repository as a .zip file from GitHub, but we do not recommend this as it is easily corrupted while downloading and is hard to keep updated (you will have to re-download the whole package every time there is a new update). However if you do, you must extract the .zip file(s) and then place them in your addons folder.

CAP (https://github.com/RafaelDeJongh/cap)

CAP_Resources (https://github.com/RafaelDeJongh/cap_resource)

After downloading it via the GitHub Application, copy and paste these folders into your addons folder which is located in "Steam\steamapps\**COMMON**\GarrysMod\garrysmod\addons".

You can then change the directory of the repository in the GitHub client under options and click the "sync" button every time there is an update which will synchronize the local files with the repository.

Alternatively, you could change the directory of where you want GitHub to download the folders and files to. You could select your garrysmod addons folder before downloading so it will automatically be placed there when you hit the clone button without the need of manually moving the folders.

Spacebuild

To make use of the energy system where entities such as the Stargates, Weapons and other entities that use power, provided by ZPM's and Naquadah generators, you require to have the Spacebuild Addon. You can download it by following the Steam Workshop or GitHub pages below.

The two spacebuild packs consists of one being the pack that has the Life Support system and is required for energy usage and two the Spacebuild Enhancement Pack, a pack that adds the ability to build and wire up flyable ships. While the enhancement pack is not required for the energy system, we do recommend it, as most servers that make use of Spacebuild together with CAP, also make use of the Enhancement Pack.
