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.

December 2016 Update

👤 🕔 December 19, 2016 72

A new update has been released! This time around we’ve mostly got bug fixes, but also some changes to the server browser.

The update will be automatically downloaded through Steam when you restart your game.
All servers will need to be updated before you can play on them.

Game Changes

  • NEW Added ‘-nogammarmap’ command-line parameter. This will disable the game’s built in gamma correction and use your system’s settings
  • NEW Hunter helicopters now perform behaviour from Half-Life 2: EP1 and EP2
  • UPD Server browser now shows more servers and ranks them slightly differently
  • UPD Burning props no longer have their gibs ignited on destruction. This was causing some performance issues
  • UPD Disabled the VGUI hotkey system (freaky internal behaviour that made ampersands work weirdly)
  • UPD Improved error messages when failing to initialize the Steam API
  • UPD Updated resource/HALFLIFE2.ttf
  • UPD Re-enabled some fixes for d1_trainstation_05/ep2_outland_01 plug sockets
  • UPD Improved performance of voice-chat mouth movement animations
  • UPD Improved performance of traces (traces that have a function as their filter no longer have the filter called way too many times)
  • UPD Improved performance when checking if entities have a RenderOverride method
  • FIX Fixed some animations not looping (e.g. noclip animation)
  • FIX Game no longer crashes when applying decals to models with a high amount of polygons
  • FIX Fixed buggy behaviour when a player dies whilst climbing a ladder
  • FIX Fixed crash that occured when printing some characters to the console when Windows is set to use certain non-english languages
  • FIX Game no longer attempts to load vaudio_miles module. This caused issues for some people who had weird installations of the Source SDK on their system

Lua API Changes

  • NEW Added Entity.GetFlexIDByName
  • NEW Added Player.SimulateGravGunPickup, Player.SimulateGravGunDrop
  • NEW Added Player.GetPreferredCarryAngles
  • NEW Added ITexture.__tostring
  • UPD GetConVar moved from C to Lua, results are now cached
  • UPD IMaterial.__tostring now acts more similarly to other __tostring metamethods in the game
  • FIX game.CleanUpMap no longer crashes when called too early on maps containg AI nodes
  • FIX game.GetTimeScale/game.GetSkillLevel now return nothing when called too early
  • FIX Entity.GetPoseParameterName no longer crashes when given an invalid input
  • FIX RunConsoleCommand’s error message now ends with a new-line when trying to run a blocked command
  • FIX render.PopFilterMag/render.PopFilterMin now properly apply changes when the filter stack is emptied
  • FIX render.Pop* functions no longer crash the game when over-popping

GMadChanges to the GMad program.

  • UPD Improved error messages when trying to create addons

    Heh… Everything pleased it “Hunter helicopters now perform behaviour from Half-Life 2: EP1 and EP2″ And so, it is better to correct the fire in a future update… Burning Objects have glows. And not to let particles.

    When I used to run servers (TTT and such) for my friends across hamachi (and now the Peer to Peer), They would only have to download the addons I had enabled. Now for some reason (I think since the July update?) they have to download all addons, enabled or not. Is this a new change, or a fixable bug? Any help?

    Did a fresh install after not playing for a while and keep getting a crash to desktop with no errors displayed when trying to generate new spawn icons (game will freeze for a few seconds before the crash).

    removed all addons after this and tried refreshing a hl2 character icon to see if the problem still occurred, which it did.

    have made sure all games that gmod is depending on are also installed. have validated all of them.

    • N/A
      December 31, 2016 at 2:45 am

      Found the issue, seems gmod does not like hardware monitoring programs like MSI afterburner running when attempting to create spawn icons.

    What id like to see is Gmod stop “quitting unexpectantly” on Mac OSX and the TF2 textures when mounted will have tf in front of their directory so they dont get mixed up with the HL2 textures
