Garry’s Mod

FAQ Link

Garry’s Mod is a physics sandbox style game. In the base game there are no goals or objectives. You are just given a set of tools and objects and away you go.
What makes Garry’s Mod worthwhile is the community additions to the game in the form of content and game modes. These game modes then control what you do and what your goal is within the game.

I’m going to be writing a series on the game and some different game modes. As this is all a work in progress the articles may change as they are revised.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have pink and black squares in Garry's Mod what are these?

A pink and black square signifies a missing texture. This means that there is a item or surface that is created with a texture you do not have. The most common cause for this is not having a copy of Counter-Strike: Source installed or installed correctly. The other cause for this is an add-on has failed to download correctly for the server or map you are playing on.

  1. Try leave and rejoin the server with the missing textures on it.
  2. Connect to a different server and see if the issues remain.
  3. Ensure all workshop addons have downloaded correctly.
    1. Ensure you have downloaded any required addons for the server – Not all download automatically
    2. Delete the addon data from your Garry’s Mod folder. (Steam folder\Steam Aps\Common\Garrysmod\garrysmod\addons) These will re-download when you launch steam or join a game server.
  4. If you don’t own CS: Source then the best course of action would be to buy it and install it to fix the above issue.
  5. Delete your install of CS: Source and re-install it and let the download complete before playing again.
How do I high jump in Garry's Mod?

You can perform a high jump by pressing crouch and as you release the crouch button hit the jump button. This will perform a high jump.

Why does Garry's mod download things when joining a server?

Garry’s mod will automatically download additional content that a server is running as you join a server. This content is specified by the server you are joining and may add to the game and server by adding things like custom player skins, custom maps, sounds and different user interfaces.

Do I need Counter-Strike Source (CS:Source) to play Garry's Mod?

The basic answer to this is no you do not need CS:Source to play. However lots of servers use materials and resources that will not display unless you have CS:Source so it is recommend to have it. You can also work around not having CS:Source by getting different addons from the Steam Workshop that provide the resources from CS:Source.
I do not have a list of these addons so it would be a matter of trial and error to find what will work. If anyone does have a list that does work and is happy for me to reference it let me know and I’ll add it here.
