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 ...

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 ...

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") ...

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 ...

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 ...

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.

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. ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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: ...

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 ...

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 and absolute max on both. ttt_traitor_pct (def. 0.25): Percentage of total players that will ...

Here you have disscusion on Steam Support about it. Go to ~/Library/Application Support/Steam/SteamApps/[your username]/garrysmod/garrysmod/addons Place the folder containing the info.txt file in that addons folder. ( ~ means your user directory, your "home" directory) Hope it helps.

Garry's Mod only works with the props from the games you have installed, and as far as I know you have to own the games in order to have access to the content. However, I'm sure if you were to look hard enough and ask nicely, you'd be able to come up with a way to get some of these games without having to pay for them, or at the very least, at a ...

In the following path, %STEAMROOT% refers to your Steam install location, eg. C:/Program Files/Steam, and %STEAMUSER% refers to the name that you use to log into Steam. (These aren't environment variables Steam sets, so you'll have to replace them yourself.) The install location for Garry's Mod addons is ...
