basically what i want to do is get the client to subscribe to a workshop addon when joining the server to lessen the fastdl load is there a command or lua function that does this or is it even possible to code one?

Well that is a bugger then, as I too do really wish I could find a way to enable clients to download Workshop items automatically. But now that I think about it this might not even be possible because it could be used in a negative way.
I think this should be a default feature, when you join a server it lists the missing workshop addons and asks if you want to download them before joining, it would be very useful.

You can't force people to automatically subscribe to addons. It would be abused INSTANTLY. This is [B][I][U]never [/U][/I][/B] going to happen as a default feature or an automatic one.
I didn't mean FORCE, I meant having an option to, like having a list of the addons it would download, just to make sure you're not downloading anything stupid.

If that's what you want, why not just create a content pack, and link the players to it on an MOTD or something? However, I stand corrected about it never being implemented.
