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.

GMod 9.0 will be released tomorrow (Friday 28th) at 10PM GMT. There's a awesome countdown on the official site.

For the most part I'm keeping the complete changelog secret until release, but I'll talk about what GMod 9.0 adds in general.

First of all GMod 9 fixes everything that is broken right now in GMod 8. The modcache, the colour mod and whatever else.

Laserdance Birdpoo building games scripted weapons Snakes

The biggest feature is Lua scripting. What does this mean? It means that you can now make your own gamemodes and weapons. A few maps will be released with GMod 9 showing some of the things you can do.

Some examples of the gamemodes in v9 are in the screenshots above.

As you can see, this turns GMod into a completely new mod.

Dear Carni:
Something I have found while designing my own mods is very often people come up with similar ideas, even when it's absolutely impossible they had any contact with each other. It can be frustrating when you come up with a truly innovative feature, only to read in a magazine a few months later about a commercial game doing the same idea. It happens, and since you cannot copyright game design, all you can do is: a) think harder, and b) learn from their success and mistakes.

1) I do have contact with Garry, he even commented on the link i showed

2) I made my mod in 3 hours, and it holds most of the things capable of achieving in Garry's mod when created. The difference is mine wasn't swarmed with hl2 fan boys.

3) this isn't jealousy, or a "YOU STOLE IT AND NOW IM GOING TO BE OVERSHADOWED".. its more like a "i told you so" on his part
