May 2017 - Security Hotfix

An update has been released which fixes an issue that allows malicious clients to cause game-servers to crash. If you don't want this to happen to your server, you should update it.

All dedicated servers should be updated through either your Game Server Provider's control panel or SteamCMD.

Edit:
If it says 'content file is locked', contact Steam Support for help.
http://support.steampowered.com/

Your free antivirus is most likely deleting the game or update files causing it all to die. Add Steam to your AV exclusions, restart Steam, and try updating again.

April 2017 Update Hotfix

A new client update has been released!

The entire change log is as follows:

  • Fixed a crash related to certain models and model detail setting
  • Fixed another crash related to decals
  • Fixed a very common crash to do with .png material unloading
  • Fixed a very old and common crash during loading screen when loading a map from an addon
  • Set r_radiosity back to 3 by default because 4 breaks community maps too much
  • Stopped reserved_spot from ever being created as it breaks ladders

This should improve client stability after previous update.

The update will be automatically downloaded when you restart your game.
Servers only need an update if they want the ladder fix.

“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.
