I was just wondering how to run the dedicated server with mods downloaded from the workshop. I can't find the location of the downloaded Workshop mod files to direct the server config file to load.

Thanks,

They are stored in steamapps/workshop/content/'content ID here'. Put its probably easier to install them manually in your mods folder.

Tried it out.  Seems like you cant load workshop mods directly even with folder numbers.
But it works if you copy from workshop folder to mods folder and load this in config.

Quote from: initial_server_config.cfg
# Mod folder names in a comma separated list
mods=691382449

This did work, but I quess you could also rename the mods if you want.

First copy mod from C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\workshop\content\228380\
to mods folder, then yes.

I don't understand why you can't load mods directly.

Nice work Mazay  :)

So other players will have to copy their mods to join the server as well I guess. I hope BB can make it easier in the next update.

copy the individual mod folder or all mods from inside folder \Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\228380\

I don't think that's needed. As long as files inside the mod folder match to workshop mod it seems to work.
