April 2016 Update

An update has been released!

This update focuses on fixing bugs and improving performance as well as adding some new features for modders.

As usual, servers will need to be updated.
The update will be automatically downloaded when you restart your game.

Thanks to everybody who helped with testing the update and reported bugs/problems.

You can find full changelist here.

Don't panic if when you join you will get "Server is running an older version of the game" - let the server update to the latest version of the game first. Just wait a few hours at most.

April Update Is Imminent

The next update for Garry's Mod will be coming later this month.

We ask you, players and modders alike, to help us test this update so it won't be as problematic as the first March update.

We have added a new pre-release branch that contains all the changes that will be included into the next update.

You can see the full changelist for the next update as well as how to join or leave the pre-release branch here:
http://wiki.garrysmod.com/changelist/prerelease/

We urge you to spend around 15 minutes in single player, testing your addons and whatnot, and report any issues you find that did not happen before here:
https://github.com/Facepunch/garrysmod-issues/
Or at least in the comments of this announcement.

If you own a Garry's Mod server, we highly recommend you test your server on the pre-release branch. Information about using experimental branches on dedicated servers can be found here:
http://wiki.garrysmod.com/page/Hosting_A_Dedicated_Server

The Dev branch is not going anywhere and contains latest changes that may not be included in the April update, but will be included in future updates.

“It brings back the silly glee of unbridled experimentation, intuitive learning and playful social interactions that most of us haven't experienced since childhood. For that, it's essential.”

About This Game

Garry's Mod is a physics sandbox. There aren't any predefined aims or goals. We give you the tools and leave you to play.

You spawn objects and weld them together to create your own contraptions - whether that's a car, a rocket, a catapult or something that doesn't have a name yet - that's up to you. You can do it offline, or join the thousands of players who play online each day.

If you're not too great at construction - don't worry! You can place a variety of characters in silly positions. But if you want to do more, we have the means.

Beyond the Sandbox


The Garry's Mod community is a tremendous source of content and has added hundreds of unique modes to the game. In Trouble In Terrorist Town, you can be a detective solving an online murder as criminals attempt to cover up their homicides. Be a ball, a plant, a chair, or anything else in Prop Hunt's elaborate, shape-shifting game of Hide & Seek. Elevator: Source is gaming's first elevator thrill ride, delivering players to airlocks and kitten dance parties.

We have one of the most vibrant Steam Community Workshops, with over 300'000 models, maps, and contraptions to download. It has everything from new tools to improve your builds, to guns that fire rainbow-tinged nuclear blasts from space. Take as much or as little as you need: it’s all free.

Please note: Some multiplayer servers and game-modes might require you to own other games - such as Counter-Strike: Source and Team Fortress 2.

Basically, Garry's Mod in a nutshell:

Download the game.
Install the game. (Or not.. I guess you could just buy it for swag, then be like.. Oh yeah, I use a Mac.)
Be confused as to how to do anything.
Spawn in a vehicle.
Discover what this "Thruster" nonsense is.
...
End up spending an entire hour making a flying hoverboat from Half-Life 2.
Thrusters Included!

You know, this game reminds me a lot of my childhood.

Like:
-Making vechicles with lego's.
-Building a wooden fortress in my backyard.
-Burning down my wooden fortress with innocent people in it.
-Find new guns and shoot my friends.
-Stealing military jets and fly them into buildings
-Creating giant atombombs without permission from my parents.

Yeah, good old times.
10/10 Would get nostalgia again.

This is the game you literally cannot be bored of. At least I know I can't. Other games are good and all, and might have some good mechanics and maybe even a brilliantly crafted story. But Garry's Mod takes the cake in my opinion. Garry's Mod doesn't need any of that fancy stuff, because it already HAS it. You can literally do ANYTHING. From nuking your entire map, to taking in game selfies with your friends, Gmod is capable of anything. The countless mods, the countless maps and weapons and NPCS all make the game what it is. It is just such an incredible game. I know what you're thinking, "why is this guy going on and on about this sandbox game?" Well, my answer is, because I simply, truly, absolutely, love this game. It is the "do whatever the hell you want game", it is awesome.

So, if you have $10 on steam, don't get undertale, get Gmod :)

What keeps this game alive is its user created content, limitless possibilites and an amazing variety of gamemodes and content. If the base game wasn't enough you should go check out the Workshop with millions of mods like props, weapons, models, vehicles etc. You name it!
This game treats you like a god (if you're the admin of course), and lets you play the game however you want it. You could go create a zombie apocalypse or even recreate a school shooting (but if you do, you're phycotic), heck you could even create a rocket that could go to space! But the skybox will block you anyway.

And that's only the singleplayer part.

The multiplayer part consist of a huge selection of gamemodes all spread to different servers for all over the world. Gamemodes could be sandbox, murder, sled racing, rp etc etc. The funniest gamemode being TTT (Trouble in Terrorist Town).
Though, it would feel alot more satisfying if the server list wasn't so lazy developed. Server list only updates once you start the game up and the legacy server finds all random gamemodes that you won't play.

Limitless possibilites and user friendly godlike status in both singleplayer and multiplayer (only when admin).
Hours and hours of content, still expanding by the help of Workshop and user created content.

I'm going to recount my entire GMod experience onto this.


In the beginning of GMod, Gmod 12, I always played with this thing called the Toybox. We always used it, and it was basically the dupes and addons combined, where they downloaded while you played, and spawned them in.
Fast forward a little to where I played the first version of Extreme Football Throwdown, where we still used the legacy browser, and I'll just say it was a BLAST.
Fast forward to the GMod 13 update, they removed the Toybox. This meant that we had to start new, and clean. There was absolutely no mods on the workshop, and everyone played vanilla GMod. We still had fun, though.
Eventually, I was hooked onto HL2RP, a serious Roleplaying Gamemode.
Do. Not. Try it. It is addictive. I've played nothing but GMod for 2 years because of it, and my cousins that were new to steam saved me from it. Read below if you want to know my entire HL2RP Experience.
I had played this gamemode for quite a while, with no friends to have understood. Eventually, I found a server named something like Cracked Reality or something like that. I had made friends with the server creator named Kingo. Eventually, this guy named Horse had played on the server too, coding for Kingo and all that jazz. Kingo did not pay him, one day, and Horse had gotten so outraged, that he made his own RP server. I basically got stuck between the two, having to play with the two that are now enemies, even though Kingo had no beef with him. I was made the DvL of the CPs in HL2RP of Kingo's slightly populated server. This forced me to play more with kingo, as I had more of a responsibility. I made a crap load of friends and eventually each server I went to on HL2RP, someone knew me. Now, I had gone to Horse's server, who now named himself Jeremy. Jeremy had a friend named Chubbger, who I quickly became friends with. With the help of Chubbger, and my Cousins, I had left the HL2RP Insanity. Seeing that Jeremy was still in it, he repeatedly invited me to several spinoffs of HL2RP, such as Star Wars Nutscript RP, along with the CW counterparts. At last, the last thing he became, before he left me, and dissipeared from my friends list was, he started up a discord server, yeah? Well, he started one, which was in fact, warframe rp. If that wasn't low enough, he downgraded his steam name to be Rule 34 Warframe, and had warframe porn for his profile pic
In short, basically that gamemode is more addictive than krokodil, and only your friends can save you. GMod is a good game, take it in healthy doses, and hopefully you don't get addicted like I did. If your addicted, try getting someone into steam, by getting them a starter game like TF2 or CSGO. That'll force you into playing with them to keep them interested. GMod is dangerous, I'm lucky that most of my friends left HL2RP.

Thank you for taking the time to reading this review, have a good day.
