How to setup admin and community groups
In 2.3 we added the ability to display admins on the scoreboard with an Admin tag using integration with the Steam Community. We also added this support for Server Groups that can use a custom tag relating to the name of their server for building communities around your server.
The first step is to create your admin or community group in the Steam Community.
Next load up the game and type the command list_community_groups
. This command will list out every group you have a membership to and give their ids. Find the name of the group you would like for your admin or community and note its id.
Next you will type either sv_admin_groupid xxx
or sv_community_groupid xxx
. The identification of players will only occur on those new players joining or when the server changes to a new map. For the community group there is also an sv_community_grouptag xxx
which lets you specify a tag to use for your server group.
If your admin(s) or community members want to go stealth and not be noted as an admin/community member they can go to their Options-Multiplayer-Advanced and uncheck the show special player status in scoreboard checkbox.
