Garry's Mod
A sandbox game for the PC, Mac and Linux

Garry's Mod is a Sandbox Game based around the idea of building. Unlike most other games there aren't any objectives - you can't lose and you definitely can't win.

      Make sure your switched to steampipe don’t use srcds use steamcmd

  5. thanks garry
    June 7, 2013 at 8:13 pm

    Thanks garry, steampipes broke all of my addons.
    all of my dupes as well

    • Idiot Informer
      June 7, 2013 at 9:36 pm

      No, it didn’t break anything. You just didn’t move your addons and data out of the old garry’s mod folder which is still there. New gmod folder is in steamapps/common. Now go fix it!

    • Thanks garry
      June 7, 2013 at 9:47 pm

      I did that.
      It screwed up wiremod models quite a bit, none of my ADVdupe2 dupes will work, im getting a lot of missing tetrom sprops for some reason…

    You guys need to switch over to SteamCMD in order to get the latest patch for a server. Note the directories are changed from $Server_directory/Orangebox/garrysmod to $Server_directory/garrysmod so it will use a different executable.

    i do not understand how garry keeps managing to break EVERYTHING if not allot of vital functionality. i mean faster addon loading my ass, he literally made uninstalling downloading and installing addons freeze gmod for upwards of five minutes every time for me, please garry do much more thorough testing and stop spoiling peoples fun.

    yours a gmod fan.

  16. Ertug Erdogan
    June 16, 2013 at 7:44 pm

    Garry simply switched to steampipe, this would make clients faster but im not sure about the serverside only because from what I have experienced they don’t use compressed formats in servers until after the update via. “hl2_misc_*.vpk”. I think that if he hadn’t updated to steampipe, Garry’s Mod would have still been using hldsupdatetool which little to no other source games still use.

    Here is another problem for me. My garry’s mod will not detect and use workshop addons. When I look at the catergory that lets you see the addon’s models they are unspawnable and a majority of them are ERRORS. Please type in a solution.

    I would love to see all the hold types from DoD and CS:S be in this game. I bet modders would be so happy. And maybe then you could add those game’s weapons to default if you have the game.

  25. Quinn
    July 15, 2013 at 8:04 pm

    Anyone know where the directory for my addons folder should go? I tried dropping it in steamapps/garrysmod/garrysmod instead of steamapps/garrysmod/garrysmod_old. Is it steamapps/common/garrysmod?

    gmod support all games that are on steampipe format like in common folder
    just half life source is on old file GCF format so, what about creating a folder or vpk file that have hls contents thought gmod on who those have purchased the game

    Do you have to install gmod onto a disk? Because steam says there is not enough disk storage left.
