GMod is a Sandbox Modification. Using GMod you can pose ragdolls. This means can position people from HL2/CS/DoD and change their faces. A big comic book creating community has popped up around this feature. Using GMod you can build. Take props from HL2/CS/DoD and weld them together to make walls. Axis a wheel to it to create a working car. Rope some cans to the back. A big contraption creating community has popped up around GMod - creating such things as Rube Goldberg devices, catapults, cannons, bridges etc.. Using GMod you can make your own weapons. That's right, make your own weapons. Using Lua you can create a custom weapon to do just about anything. If you're new you can change simple things like rate of fire, models, sounds. If you're awesome the world is your oyster, mass changing guns, melon cannons, jetpacks. GMod gives you the freedom to do any of these things in single player or online with your friends.

Garrys Mod allows the player to manipulate objects and experiment with the physics, often with interesting results due to the Source engine. The construction of complex machines within the game can also be a contemporary spin on the Rube Goldberg machine principle. This is the latest version and has is no longer in active development due to GMOD 10 (a commercial game being released)

I just recently found out that you need all three games to use gmod.
(Half-Life 2, Half-Life 2: Deathmatch,and Counter-Strike: Source)
So, far I only have Half-Life 2 and the
Deathmatch, I think thats my problem.....

uhkdusrysya Jul 27 2010, 11:10pm replied:

to play gmod 9 u need a source game, after that u might have a tool called 'Source SDK base 2006' if u have it u need to put the gmod in folder 'Steam>steamapps>sourcemods' open steam, go to library>tools and right click source sdk base 2006 and then properties. click set launch options then write -gmod9 then press ok and then restart steam. after u restart double click source sdk base 2006 and u can play! (if it doesnt work i think u shuld do it on source sdk base 2007 and if it still doesnt work im sorry.)

for all who wanna play gmod 9.0.4, you need Steam for a start. to play gmod you need to have hl2, hl2: deatmatch and cs:s.
if you cant find any servers, make a shortcut at your desktop open content by right clicking it and chose the last option, at destination copy this command (D:\steam\Steam.exe -applaunch 215 -game "d:\steam\SteamApps\SourceMods\gmod9" -console) without the (), or just change the -appluanch to 215, and the destination to your gmod destination. it will fix the "cannot see/run gmod and the cannot find servers/make server"

mema Apr 2 2008, 11:54am replied:

1. Create a New desktop Icon for gmod
2. Right click on it and go to properties
Yours may say something different, used -gamelaunch or something
3. Under path it will say "C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 220 -game "c:\program files\valve\steam\SteamApps\SourceMods\gmod9"

this is what it should be changed to, assuming your path is the same.
4. Change it to look like this "C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\Steam.exe" -applaunch 215 -game "c:\program files\valve\steam\SteamApps\SourceMods\gmod9"
