auto-update server + download/update mods script [WINDOWS]

Recommended Posts


I have setup dedicated server on my localhost. I setup it via Steam Dedicated Server application. Configured mods and configs manually.

Each time when there is an update of server or mod, I need to do it manually. I want to have it automated.

Here is script that I am working on for Windows.

I am not good with batch scripting, for that reason, I am seeking help with this. I will share my results for community. I am sure, that somebody will benefit from this too.


Here is what I have so far:


@echo off

set "steam=C:\steam"
set "server=C:\dst"


%steam%\steamcmd +login %login% %pass% +force_install_dir "%server%" +app_update 343050 validate +quit

:: Mods
set mods[0]=885426046
set mods[1]=928691537
set mods[2]=378160973

:: Force download
del /f %steam%\steamapps\workshop\appworkshop_322330.acf

set "x=0"
if defined mods[%x%] (

    call set "id=%%mods[%x%]%%"
    echo Downloading %id%

    %steam%\steamcmd +login %login% %pass% +workshop_download_item 322330 %id% validate +quit
    mklink /J "%server%\mods\workshop-%id%" "%steam%\steamapps\workshop\content\322330\%id%"
    set /a "x+=1"
    GOTO :loop

First of all, you don't need to use your steam login to download the DST dedicated server, so just replace

%steam%\steamcmd +login anonymous +force_install_dir "%server%" +app_update 343050 +quit

(No idea if the paths are correct, I just kept them as you provided them.)

If you have the steam authenticator enabled, the authentication code might've already screwed you over with the login there.

Second, don't try to force download or somehow hackibly enable your mods, just use the standard functions that the dedicated server provides, as described in my Guide here:
