Yes, you can (even CS:S maps)! Downloading the appropriate files from here (click on 'Garry Content') as shown in this video will work (He'll show you where to place the files). It's just textures (and maps, if you need it) for use as an addon to Garry's Mod. This is completely legal because there is another [more complicated] method listed on the ...

Actually, there's now a new tool called the gravity hull stool I think. It makes a localized physics field so you can move around on any surface even if its spinning or moving at light speed and you won't be affected by the outside world. Extremely useful for moving spaceships and vehicles.

Posting this question/answer here, since the solution doesn't appear to exist anywhere else (outside of my own steam forums post): Apparently Garry's Mod uses Internet Explorer somehow for its "FastDL" downloading. If Internet Explorer can't connect to the internet for whatever reason, then Garry's Mod won't download anything. In my case, IE was set to ...

The addons that really do "add on" to GMod; that improve it as a sandbox, toolset, and game - the ones I'd consider "essential", are: Advanced Duplicator 2 Wiremod The unofficial Wiremod extras pack (UWSVN) Fin Easy Precision Weight Buoyancy Unbreakable Stacker The less essential but not on the list (due to being too specific or too akward for ...

I'm not familiar with DarkRP, but for all non-Workshop addons I've ever used, you put them in steamapps/common/GarrysMod/garrysmod/addons. If it is on the Workshop, just subscribe to it and it will be installed automatically.

Open the console (Press "~") and enter sbox_weapons 1. Respawn and the weapons will be restored

As far as I can tell, you cannot priorities addons for now through the Steam Workshop I have tried for games such as Portal 2 & Civilization 5, and there is no possible way to control there It is possible that this can be different in Garry's Mod, but unless the game controls the downloading of addons through the game itself, I would highly doubt, as it ...

Maybe I found something around (and your idea is awesome, actually) In your GMOD installation you should see a folder like this: lua/autorun/server/ Create your LUA script (noguns.lua) with a text editor and paste this in: function StripAndGive(ply) ply:StripWeapons() ply:Give("weapon_physcannon") ply:Give("weapon_gravgun") ...

Some common ones that online servers will use are Wiremod and PHX. Up until a few months ago, PHX had to be downloaded manually, but now comes with Gmod. Wiremod will help avoid those pesky purple squares on some servers, as well as the absolutely huge download. I recommend owning and loading Counter-Strike: Source on in the extensions. A HUGE number of ...

When you subscribe for a garry's mod addon, it will automatically download. You can see this as a sort of DLC. To play it, you have to buy Garry's Mod

If popularity is a good measure, then you should take a look at available addons sorted by number of downloads : http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=list&b=downloads The top 3 right now is: Nuke Pack 4 (official) Dismemberment Mod MP3 Player With Remixes.zip If you prefer video, there is a video on Youtube you might find interesting. ...

There is no such command built in, but if you have Wiremod installed, it provides a toolcpanel command that sets both toolgun and its context menu. You can use it like bind t "toolcpanel wire_adv". Found the answer in this thread.

Based on the convars and defaults listed here, 25% (rounded down, min 1) of players will be traitor, and 13% (rounded down) will be detective. Note that both settings are adjustable for servers and there are also settings (listed on the page linked) for setting a max for both. ttt_traitor_pct (def. 0.25): Percentage of total players that will be a ...

Are you downloading the legacy version of DarkRP from Garrysmod.org? If that is the case, the garrysmod folder is now located in Program files\Steam\steamapps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod Also, you will need to change the text file name inside the DarkRP folder from info.txt to addon.txt. Once that's done, just drop it in the addons folder. However, I ...

Looks like the latest GMod update, broke the Mac version. I would suggest waiting for a update, that fixes it.

Are you running the server on a local machine at your place? In that case, try using internal LAN address to connect to it. If that still fails, the issue is with your computer's firewall, possibly. Try disabling it momentarily and connect to the server again. If that also fails, then the problem is most likely with SteamCMD. Check that you haven't ...

This is actually an extremely common problem. Whether intentional or a part of the code, fading doors do not rebind to their respective keys upon reloading a save and also when rejoining a server. The only way I can recommend to fix it is to manually go to each door and then recreate it as a fading door. I understand this is painful, but I have not found ...

If this question still is valid: Garry's mod has no permission management by default. You will need a plugin / addon for this. There are several plugins you can use for permission management in Garry's mod. One of the best out there in my opinion is the ULX mod. You can find a tutorial on how to install and configure it here: ...

As far as I know, the only limit is your computer's performance!

I think they just used the see name. The console command used to send a quickchat is "ttt_radio". You need to supply which quickchat text to send by adding its name, for example: "ttt_radio help" to send the "Help!" chat. Binding that to a key could look like: bind "h" "ttt_radio help" Entered into the console of course. These are the possible quickchat ...

This can happen if your keybindings get messed up. Try resetting your keys from the options menu. Failing that, delete the Steam\steamapps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod\cfg and Steam\steamapps\<your username>\garrysmod\garrysmod\cfg folders. As a last resort, uninstall and reinstall Garry's Mod.

You can't find them because Garry's mod uses the props and textures from other games like Counter-Strike:Source. Look in these files and you will find everything you need.

The best thing to try first with games on steam is to check that your local files for the game are not corrupt. Right click on them in your library, Click properties, click on the local files tab and then click "Verify Integrity of Game Cache". That pretty much sorts all of my issues with Steam games.


1

Have you tried clearing your local cache from gmod? Sometimes a corrupted file or virused file will cause a game crash. Also have you checked any extra mods/other games linked to Gmod such as CS:S and HL2:DM for errors/corruption? Could be that a file is corrupt or damaged.

It depends. If the server is running a CS:S map, you probably won't be able to join. (I have CS:S so I can't say for sure) If they are running a map not prefixed for CS:S (de_, cs_, etc.) then you should be fine. However I have friends who have Gmod without CS:S, and they're reported issues. In playing a lot of Gmod gamemodes such as TTT or PH, they ...

This seems to happen whenever the Steam workshop goes down. The only solutions I know of are either switch to offline mode or wait for it to come back online.


1

What about running a local multiplayer game with a low player count? (to prevent others from joining) That should make the gamemode behave as usual, without the extra people. (You can probably create a server through the Multiplayer menu.)

What do you specifically mean by TTT stats? Every server you go on with TTT stores your "stats" separately. I'm assuming you mean your karma/kills/deaths etc, you can view them by pressing and holding TAB while in a TTT server. Some TTT servers have a custom shop where you can buy hats/clothes with currency you earned while playing, this can be accessed ...

Just choose a tool from the menu and it will appear.
