Garry’s Mod is a sandbox mod for the Source Engine. Unlike normal games there aren't any predefined aims or goals. Players are given tools and are left to entertain themselves. The player is in a world where objects can be created and destroyed on demand. Where people can be created and destroyed with the click of a mouse. A world made for him. A world he made.

Yes peeps thats right a new update of Garrysmod has just been released. News Posted 1:45pm 16th Jan 08.

Posted by Lucífer on Jan 16th, 2008

The latest Version of GMod has been released, here are some of the changes:

  • Switched to new EP2 Engine
  • Added support for TF2, EP2 and Portal
  • Updated Spawnmenu
  • New 'Start Game' menus
  • Lamps now cast shadows (if supported by hardware)
  • Lamps texture can now be changed
  • Updated gm_construct
  • New loading screen
  • New player models (thanks to Nickolas George)
  • Added map icons (thanks to PaddyMazz, Honkers, SirMikesAlot, Jake Tott and Dash)
  • Added new NPC options

At the moment there seems to be two major issues that are causing people heartache. (Update a patch has been released which hopefully fixes this)

Multiplayer: The problem being that it doesn't work. Dedicated servers don't work either. I'm 90% sure that this is something Valve has to tamper with, but I'll be looking into it more today.

Addons: If it's crapping out because of old addons you have installed, it's time to clean gmod. I'm not going to release a patch that magically fixes broken addons.

The Servers need to update themselves to the latest version released, thats all.
Hopefully the admins of all the servers will have it sorted by tomorrow. ^^

Steam Have now updated Garrysmod meaning the servers should be back to working order now.
Though scripts may be damaged or broken as well as model packs.
(Do not worry, most popular Model Packs still work, like the PHX)
However some servers may either need a restart, or relaunch in order for the patch to take effect so people can join them again.
Happy RP/Build/shipbuilding All. ^^

Na, you can't do it without owning them because you wouldn't have the content.

Mods are supposed to be free, Garry gay made a fatal mistake when he began to charge people to play the "mod"

I don't hear you bashing DoD or Counter-Strike for doing the same as Garry has, more power to him for getting as far as he has. "fatal mistake"? Yeah right thats why it's sold rather well and considering the price I don't understand why you're moaning anyway.

oh...I'm sorry, is that an empty wallet you have sir, surely you can spend such a small fee as $10 on a game.
And to say all the work he put into it(remember its not solely just him), I think he deserves it to be honest, I hear no complaints about Natural Selection 2 either(though not released, it will cost).

Im sorry, but this mod is worthy enough for a price. Each tool in the mod is crafted well enough to be user friendly and enjoyable. All the work put into it deserves the price we pay.

Go play Counterstrike on HL1. thats free.
