July 2019 Update is live!



Art by Nicnac

Update Highlights
This update finally brings the Half-Life: Source weapons and entities, which were added a few updates ago, directly to your Spawnmenu.


(Note that this requires Half-Life: Source owned and installed on Steam, as well as mounted in Garry's Mod)

This also means the weapons were given proper art pass treatment - third person animations, models and all effects included, which is why the weapons weren't available in the spawnmenu previously.

In addition a lot of Half-Life and NPC related changes and fixes are introduced in this update for your enjoyment. NPCs can now use more built-in weapons (.357 Magnum and Glock) and use others (RPG Launcher) more effectively, some progression stopping bugs in Half-Life campaigns have been resolved.

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive map support has been improved as well, static props now get their proper color and there is no longer any weird issues with Physics Gun and bullets hitting the air. The maps also are no longer extremely shiny.

The update also brings some general fixes and improvements to the game, including security, stability and minor performance improvements.

Notable among Lua API changes and improvements is the addition of util.GetModelMeshes. This new function will allow modders to modify existing models in ways not previously possible. This and all of other new Lua API additions and changes are documented on our our Official Wiki.

Notice
This update will require servers to update before you can join them. We try to keep such updates to a minimum, but it was necessary for this update.

This means that for a certain time after the update you may get a message such as "The server is running an older version of the game" when connecting to your favourite servers. You will have to wait for servers to update before you can join them again.

You CANNOT downgrade to a previous version of the game.

“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.
