How to Download and Install Custom Player Models for CS:GO
If you want to spice up your Counter-Strike: Global Offensive game with some new and cool player models, you might be wondering how to download and install them on your server. In this article, we will show you a simple and easy way to do that using Sourcemod, a popular modding tool for Source games.
Sourcemod is a plugin that allows you to customize and enhance your game server with various features, such as admin commands, chat commands, voting systems, scripting, and more. One of the features that Sourcemod offers is the ability to change the player models for different teams or players on your server.
To download and install custom player models for CS:GO using Sourcemod, you will need the following:
A dedicated server running CS:GO
Sourcemod installed on your server
The custom player models that you want to use
A text editor (such as Notepad) to edit the configuration files
Here are the steps to follow:
Download the custom player models that you want to use from a reputable source, such as GameBanana. Make sure that the models are compatible with CS:GO and Sourcemod.
Extract the files from the downloaded archive and copy them to your server's csgo folder. The files should include a models folder, a materials folder, and a .kv file.
Edit the .kv file with a text editor and change the names of the models to match the ones that you copied to your server. For example, if you downloaded a model called ct_urban.mdl, but you copied it as ct_custom.mdl, you need to change the name in the .kv file accordingly.
Create a new file called playermodels.cfg in your server's csgo/cfg/sourcemod folder. This file will contain the commands to load the custom player models on your server.
Edit the playermodels.cfg file with a text editor and add the following lines:
// Load custom player models
sm_cvar sv_precacheinfo 1
sm_cvar sv_allow_point_servercommand always
sm_cvar mp_teams_unbalance_limit 0
sm_cvar mp_limitteams 0
sm plugins load optional/playermodelchooser.smx
sm plugins load optional/randomcycle.smx
The first four lines are necessary to enable the custom player models on your server. The fifth line executes the .kv file that contains the names of the models. The last two lines load two optional plugins that allow you to choose or randomize the player models on your server. You can skip these lines if you don't want to use these plugins.
Save and close the playermodels.cfg file.
Restart your server or type rcon exec playermodels.cfg in your console to apply the changes.
Congratulations! You have successfully downloaded and installed custom player models for CS:GO using Sourcemod. You can now enjoy playing with your new models on your server.
