"A LAN party masterpiece. Plain GMod is already fun, but it also has hundreds of integrated player-made gamemodes that amplify the fun. TTT, ZMod, etc!"

The Summer Hotfix

A minor update containing a few hotfixes for last update just came out. Restarting your servers is strongly recommended.
If there are any persisting issues left, please report them on the official GitHub issues page.

GLIBC_2.15 dependency on Linux dedicated servers
Some Linux dedicated server owners may have noticed that the game now requires glibc 2.15. This is a necessary change since the version we were using before was really outdated. If your server is running on a relatively old distro which does not include that library, you can find instructions on how to install it here: Linux Dedicated Server Hosting.

Fixed non-ASCII characters being removed from player names
This was accidentally introduced in an attempt to fix an exploit which would let servers tamper with a client’s configuration file, sorry for that! Everything should be back to normal now.

Fixed model scaling not working correctly on some models
Entity:SetModelScale and Entity:EnableMatrix had an issue with some models which would cause transformations to be applied twice. This issue is now fixed, you can see the difference below:

This will break scripts that rely on the old broken behaviour, so I also added Entity:SetLegacyTransform for those who want their current scripts fixed with minimal effort. This function basically brings the old scaling behaviour back for the entity it is called on, so it should be used exclusively as a temporary fix.

Full Changelog

Fixes
  • Fixed plugin_load not doing anything
  • Fixed players being removed when sitting in a vehicle parented to another entity
  • Fixed non-ASCII characters being removed from player names
  • Fixed tabs in RichText selection
  • Fixed properties not correctly working on vanilla
  • Fixed Color.__tostring not outputting alpha
  • Fixed render.CapturePixels crashing when used on render targets
  • Fixed Weapon:CallOnClient crashing when called on a weapon owned by a NPC
  • Fixed player names not updating in scoreboard and voice panels
  • Fixed weapon holdtypes not always updating on the client
  • Definitely fixed Entity:SetModelScale and Entity:EnableMatrix applying transformations twice on some models
Additions
  • Added Entity:SetLegacyTransform(bool)
Deletions
  • Removed properties.HaloThink
  • Removed _restart from blocked concommand list

“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.

Garry's Mod: The one and only true Sandbox game. Anything goes here.

Build contraptions and complex machines in Sandbox, the builders' dream.

Roleplay as a cop, as a gangster, or even a hobo in DarkRP.

Play as an innocent bystander or the cold-blooded murderer in Murder.

Get your own virtual suite and socialize in Garry's Mod Tower.

Or perhaps try your hand at fighting the zombie horde in Zombie Survival.

If players versus players in Zombie Survival isn't your thing, try Zombie Outbreak.

I wouldn't have 4.5k hours on a game that's boring.

Despite its release date, this is still one of the best games out there, where only your imagination is the limit to what you can do.

The base game is sandbox with Half-Life 2 weapons and it supports models from most Source engine games such as Counterstrike Source, Team Fortress 2 and Left for Dead 2.

New features aswell as modifying exisiting ones can be done through modding, and the language used in the mods is lua, which is very easy to pick up on and learn.

Garry's Mod is one of those games that probably everyone played, and even if you do not, you definitely seen it. So really, you can not even call this creature the game, because it does not have any plot. Actually, this sandbox giving people great opportunities, and it is the players that make the Gmod playable and want to play it.
