    I want to host my own dedicated server. I would like to use audi_tt cup. I made the package file and installed the event. Set the server, it shows up in server list, everybody can join who has the tracks and mod which included in the package (tried with friend).
    The problem is that ppl who don't have the files getting this messege "Package not Available".
    So what should i set if i want the server let them to download the content through the launcher, as normally i do when i join a server which i've never played on before and the launcher automatically start downloading.
    What should i do?

    After i set allow download in multiplayer.json, and saved the package folder like "Audi_TT_cup" then i have to set up downloadlinks via dropbox?

    Not sure, but I think that's only neccessary when the hosted tracks/cars are not already installed on the client's side.

    Allowing download in your multiplayer.json, should enable the connecting clients to download the event package file you created in MAS2 tool.

    Be sure to leave the content to be downloaded in the server package folder. It is the place where the game tries to find the content to be downloaded.

    You mean the rfactor2/packages folder, where the .rfmod is?
