The October Garry's Mod update is coming soon

Hello everyone!

The next update for Garry's Mod is coming soon.

Currently, the update is planned for the 10th of October.

Pre-release Steam branch
The Pre-release Steam Beta branch for Garry's Mod has been updated and contains all the changes that will be included into the next update.

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

This update will be mandatory. (i.e. Servers will have to update)

This next update will bring the following to Garry's Mod:
* Peer-To-Peer friends only mode - Enable this to only allow friends to join your games
* Substantial updates & optimization to Sandbox Spawnmenu and other UI
* Many updates, fixes and new features to all base Sandbox tools
* NPC networking optimizations
* New and improved features for modders
* Numerous crash & security fixes
* New main menu backgrounds created by the community
* Numerous Physgun improvements

Help us test it!
We ask you, players and modders alike, to help us test this update so that there will be as few problems as possible on release.

We urge you to spend as much time as convenient for you 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:

July 2016 Update

A new update has been released!

This update is optional, however it is strongly recommended that server owners install it.
Clients will automatically update via Steam when the game is restarted.

Peer-To-Peer Listen Servers
Servers that are created via the main-menu's "Start New Game" button can now be connected to via Steam's P2P networking. This means that - on most networks - friends are able to connect to each other's games without any special network configuration being required (e.g. port forwarding).

To use it, all you have to do is use your friends list to join/invite a friend!

Queued (Multi-Core) Rendering
This isn't finished yet, but queued rendering should be pretty robust now. Any changes in performance are entirely dependent on your hardware and the scene being rendered.

You can enable it by running a few commands when you launch the game (press Shift+Escape to open the console):
gmod_mcore_test 1
mat_queue_mode -1
cl_threaded_bone_setup 1


Other Changes
  • Added mat_requires_rt_alloc_first ConVar from upstream.
  • Lua console commands are now removed when disconnecting from a server/changing level.
  • Replicated Lua ConVars are now properly synched with the server.
  • Scripted weapons now function correctly when switching to a weapon with no ammo.
  • Clients will no longer be disconnected with the reason "CL_CopyExistingEntity: missing client entity".
  • Crouch-jumping will no longer cause the screen to flicker after a certain amount of server up-time.
  • Fixed rare crash that occurs when increasing the outgoing network buffer size for game-state snapshots.
  • Ropes no longer cause the game to not properly close on exit.
  • Fixed issue that could cause the "GetLuaTable != TABLE" crash to occur on level change.
  • file.Find() now sorts its results properly. The default behavior is unchanged.
  • HTTP() no longer leaks request references and won't crash if the Lua state is destroyed during a request.
  • Some security fixes.

You can find full changelist here.

“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.

Used to love this game.

+Extremely large amount of gamemodes and servers to play.
+Huge amount of things to do.
+Large variety of ways to build.
+Workshop support.

-Community is toxic.
-Majority of the decent servers are down.
-Roleplay is next to non existant at this point.
-Most servers are full of corruption and you will be banned for simply annoying an admin.
-Requires other games for you to see the textures on most servers.
-I feel the need to say it again: The community is extremely toxic.

If your looking for a review on this game you've come to the wrong place, but if your looking for an outstanding pie recipe you've come to the right place.

Ingredients:
1. 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
2. 1/2 cup white sugar
3. 1/2 cup brown sugar
4. 1/4 cup water
5. 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
6. 1 pinch salt
7. 5 apples - peeled, cored and sliced
8. 1 pastry for double-crust pie

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
2. Combine butter, white sugar, brown sugar, water, cinnamon, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, remove from heat and set aside.
3. Roll out half the pastry to fit a 9-inch pie plate. Place bottom crust in pie plate; pour in apple slices.
4. Roll out top crust into a 10-inch circle. Cut into 8 (1-inch) wide strips with a sharp paring knife or pastry wheel. Weave the pastry strips, one at a time, into a lattice pattern. Fold the ends of the lattice strips under the edge of the bottom crust and crimp to seal.
5. Pour butter-sugar mixture over top of pie, coating the lattice, and allowing any remaining sauce to drizzle through the crust.
6. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C), and bake until the crust is golden brown, the caramel on the top crust is set, and the apple filling is bubbling, 35 to 40 more minutes. Allow to cool completely before slicing.

It's hard to say anything more than what's been said thousands of other times, but this game is worth your money, and it'll certainly take up your time!

From Sandbox mode, to cinema where you can watch youtube videos with your friends, to Prop Hunt where you either become a prop or hide from the hunters, to Stop it, Slender, where you play "Slender" but with others...and one person IS Slenderman, to many other modes and maps, silly weapons, and so forth.

Even at the full price of $9.99, this is a bargain for what you get as everything else is free to download overall. Some things require Half-Life Episodes 1-2, CS:Source or Team Fortress 2 to be mounted onto the game, but get them on sale, and it's still not bad.

Absolutely get this game, get some friends and have fun!

How to Make Cabbage Kimchi

Makes 1 quart
What You Need
Ingredients
1 medium head (2 pounds) napa cabbage
1/4 cup sea salt or kosher salt (see Recipe Notes)
Water (see Recipe Notes)
1 tablespoon grated garlic (5 to 6 cloves)
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 teaspoon sugar
2 to 3 tablespoons seafood flavor or water (optional, see Recipe Notes)
1 to 5 tablespoons Korean red pepper flakes (gochugaru)
8 ounces Korean radish or daikon, peeled and cut into matchsticks
4 scallions, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces

Equipment
Cutting board and knife
Large bowl
Gloves (optional but highly recommended)
Plate and something to weigh the kimchi down, like a jar or can of beans
Colander
Small bowl
Clean 1-quart jar with canning lid or plastic lid
Bowl or plate to place under jar during fermentation

Instructions
Slice the cabbage: Cut the cabbage lengthwise into quarters and remove the cores. Cut each quarter crosswise into 2-inch-wide strips.
Salt the cabbage: Place the cabbage and salt in a large bowl. Using your hands (gloves optional), massage the salt into the cabbage until it starts to soften a bit, then add water to cover the cabbage. Put a plate on top and weigh it down with something heavy, like a jar or can of beans. Let stand for 1 to 2 hours.
Rinse and drain the cabbage: Rinse the cabbage under cold water 3 times and drain in a colander for 15 to 20 minutes. Rinse and dry the bowl you used for salting, and set it aside to use in step 5.
Make the paste: Meanwhile, combine the garlic, ginger, sugar, and seafood flavor (or 3 tablespoons water) in a small bowl and mix to form a smooth paste. Mix in the gochugaru, using 1 tablespoon for mild and up to 5 tablespoons for spicy (I like about 3 1/2 tablespoons).
Combine the vegetables and paste: Gently squeeze any remaining water from the cabbage and return it to the bowl along with the radish, scallions, and seasoning paste.
Mix thoroughly: Using your hands, gently work the paste into the vegetables until they are thoroughly coated. The gloves are optional here but highly recommended to protect your hands from stings, stains, and smells!
Pack the kimchi into the jar: Pack the kimchi into the jar, pressing down on it until the brine rises to cover the vegetables. Leave at least 1 inch of headspace. Seal the jar with the lid.
Let it ferment: Let the jar stand at room temperature for 1 to 5 days. You may see bubbles inside the jar and brine may seep out of the lid; place a bowl or plate under the jar to help catch any overflow.
Check it daily and refrigerate when ready: Check the kimchi once a day, pressing down on the vegetables with a clean finger or spoon to keep them submerged under the brine. (This also releases gases produced during fermentation.) Taste a little at this point, too! When the kimchi tastes ripe enough for your liking, transfer the jar to the refrigerator. You may eat it right away, but it's best after another week or two.

First off, the game doesn't have crazy demands of your PC. I am not gonna post the specs required because the store page has that, but I can tell you my crappy old laptop can run it no problem so you should be good if you have even a basic desktop or laptop.

Now, I have to admit, I don't have nearly as many hours as most players. I am learning new things everyday, however I don't play this game to be serious or competitive. If you are looking for a game with near limitless opportunity to be ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥, laugh or just have fun, usually doing nothing, this is the game for you.

The community is very mixed. You have the young "squeakers", the "girl gamers" that constantly rant about "girl stuff" or how they are different but "don't want the attention", the jokers/trolls, a few anal types that scream for a mod/admin any time someone is even remotely mean or breaks a supposed rule, but also alot of chill and laid back guys or gals that just enjoy playing a round with friends.

All in all, I would say its a good game and recommend it to anyone, just don't go in expecting a hardcore serious MLG experience.

-Savage

P.S. Feel free to add me and ask to play.
