The steamcmd module installs Valve Corporation's "Steam Console Client".

To customize the installation, the following parameters are available:

installdir: The location to install steamcmd to. Default on Linux is /opt/steamcmd and Windows is C:\Steamcmd

user: This will create a user that owns the directory. Default is steamcmd

group: This will create a group that owns the directory. Default is steamcmd

For instance, to install to a different location with different users and groups:

class { 'steamcmd':
  installdir => '/home/steam',
  user       => 'steam',
  group      => 'steam',
