i wish valve's refund policy allowed people who purchased bad lazy-made games like yours to get a refund,because i want my money back from this overpriced nothing-to-do simulator. but since i can't get my money back i will at least ask you to fix this game,so here are my demands: 1)fix the loading times in the multyplayer.we need to wait 10-30 minutes to load each map and many of these maps are not even good. 2)give us a proper tutorial for new-players. we need to know everything that we can and can't do.it is not the community's job to do such things. 3)translate the language that the servers are written. there are times where i try to enter a server whose title is in english just to find out that the description of this server is in some foreighn language like french and russian.either change the titles so they match the server's language or change the server's language 4)give us a proper description of each game mode. i don't want to wait half an hour to find out what is the objective and if i will like the objective,in many servers i ask other people to tell me the objective and nobody answers.what is murder?what is truble in terrorist town?what is smash? 5)lower the price to 1 euro/dollar,the game really is not worth the price.10 euros are too much for a game that takes half an hour to connect to an online server and the single player campaign has gameplay which consists of spawning things and sticking them together,how is this fun? 6)fix this bug that happened to me today,i was running on an online server some other player hit me and we were both stuck and could not move for a big ammount of time.
Get better internet or download the maps ahead of time It's pretty self explanatory? I learned how to play around with the tools when I was younger. You can too. The server sets the name, there's no need to translate. Join a non-English server if that's your complaint. Talk to the developer of the gamemode. They are in charge of this, it's community made content. Facepunch Studios has nothing to do with it. No, 10 euro is a completely valid price for the amount of gameplay you get out of this game. Don't play Sandbox if you don't like Sandbox gameplay. That's just how Source is.
if you want a solid singleplayer campaign in gmod just load up one of those "KILL BREEN GM_CONSTRUCT SAVE" maps from 2007.
You should practice better purchasing decisions before you part with your dollars You have the resources to gauge whether or not a game is good or not. It's not the devs fault it isn't to your tastes. Getting buttmad over it won't help you. You should have done it before you spent 2 hours playing it, which is more than enough time to not only set your controls up but play the game. "Nothing to do sim", well golly, it's not Garrys fault that you don't have the imagination to have fun. There are many ways to grab your attention. It's kind of on the nose that a sandbox game will be the way it is, it's even in the name of the genre. All maps are made by third party groups and players. It's made to be open ended like that. The workshop and various sites, including this one, will have maps to download. Maps for sandbox are always empty because its meant to be played using props and built using tools. There are videos, look it up yourself. Gmod is about experimenting with the Source engine. It's literally an experiment in and of itself. What does this have to do with the game itself? Complain to the server owners. Garry doesn't have the power to do this. How is this the games fault exactly? They're all designed by players. The game is purpose built to allow players to design game modes. Shouldn't have purchased it then. You had reviews to look at, read them. 1 dollar is also silly. I think the devs deserve more credit than that, even if its buggy, Gmod was very resourceful in its time and is designed fairly creatively. Blame Valve for not creating a perfect engine that fits your every need. What should I even say really. Do you want Garry to personally spend his time to fix this bug just for you? He has better shit to do.
1)fix the loading times in the multyplayer.we need to wait 10-30 minutes to load each map and many of these maps are not even good. Download ahead of time, 2)give us a proper tutorial for new-players. we need to know everything that we can and can't do.it is not the community's job to do such things. Easy to learn game, servers u join usually have rules and what you can/cant do. 3)translate the language that the servers are written. there are times where i try to enter a server whose title is in english just to find out that the description of this server is in some foreighn language like french and russian.either change the titles so they match the server's language or change the server's language Servers decide the language not valve/facepunch. 4)give us a proper description of each game mode. i don't want to wait half an hour to find out what is the objective and if i will like the objective,in many servers i ask other people to tell me the objective and nobody answers.what is murder?what is truble in terrorist town?what is smash? Youtube?!?!?!?!?!?! 5)lower the price to 1 euro/dollar,the game really is not worth the price.10 euros are too much for a game that takes half an hour to connect to an online server and the single player campaign has gameplay which consists of spawning things and sticking them together,how is this fun? The price for almost 200+ different game modes? bargain 6)fix this bug that happened to me today,i was running on an online server some other player hit me and we were both stuck and could not move for a big ammount of time. Source does what source wants
Pls tell us who/what forced you to buy that "Baaad" game ?
download maps ahead of the time?how do i do that? i was talking about the single player which can be quite challenging.i was told that you need to learn to code. also not all servers have good tips,some of them only tell you things like don't be toxic instead of explaining the game mode. facepunch should translate them so they are accessible to everyone you want me to search every map on youtube?okay i didn't think of this,but i really shouldn't be doing this. the price for a single player mode where there is nothing to do and online servers where nobody knows what is doing os worth 10 euros?yeah too much. dude it's a bug why do you want it to stay unsolved?
People that make the servers, made the code for those servers, made the gameplay for those servers, made everything for those servers. Facepunch gave them to tools to be their own developers. No different to game engines like Unreal Engine its down to the people that make the games ( in this case server gamemodes admins) to make the correct adjustments. Its pioneering hence why since 2004 when Gmod was released the community is extremely active and shows no signs of slowing down.
The Workshop, you know the thing that you should be using to look for community content rather than complain at Facepunch for developing the base you only need to code if you want something that’s not already on the workshop, literally everything new in life is going to be challenging the first time around I don’t have anything else to say to you other than you’re dumb So you complain everything is too challenging, yet you refuse to look somewhere you can learn? There is plenty to do in single player, it’s called using the workshop. GMod was created to do what you want to do, you can get mods or make mods and give yourself more to do, it’s not other peoples fault you’re not creative enough to think of fun stuff to do in a SANDBOX game no one wants bugs to be unsolved. GMod is an old game and you can’t just simply fix game engines, the engine the game uses I believe is the 2006 Source Engine, what did you honestly expect from a game that is already pushing the boundaries of Source? Why do you think S&Box is in development?
this game had a 98% likes on steam and tons of comments saying that it is perfect and you can't go wrong with buying it.how was i suppossed to know that this game is the most overated game ever? also 2 hours are not enough to test it. this part of your comment does not make sense,i complain about how long it takes to load maps and you type some shit totally irrelevant just because there are videos does not mean that the developers need to become lazy and not do their job. are sure that they don't have such power?prove it! how hard is for the developers to put a fucking window that explains what each game mode is about?there is a game mode called smash,i entered it and we were just walking around.stop defending their laziness. the devs deserve more credit?most of the content is made by the community and it is not even good most of the time.but okay let's say that i am wrong about the qualitywhy should the devs make money over other people's jobs?stop defending their laziness. this game is made on the same engine that tf2 is made and i have never seen this bug on tf2 all these years that i am playing it.for the last time STOP DEFENDING THE LAZINESS OF THE DEVELOPERS.what do you mean better things to do?like what?i doubt if he has anything remotely better to do.it is a game breaking bug it needs to be fixed.
Garry's Mod No need to learn Lua if you just download already existing things. Blame the server owner for having b ad tips. That's not their job, it's the server owner's. No? I don't know where you got that. If you have a complaint about someone's addon/map, you talk to them about it. They made it, Facepunch did not. Single Player gave me and plenty of other people hours of fun. It's an engine bug, they are not capable of fixing it because they don't have the ability to.
download ahead of time?what does that even mean and how do i do that? i was talking about the single player,which i am told requires to know how to program. and not all online servers explain what is the objective suppossed to be. facepunch should force some translation according to increase accessibility stop defending their laziness,it is not the community's job to do things that the devs should do. it does not have these many modes,and many of them are shit and don't make any sense.not to mention that they are made by the community not the developers so it is kinda greedy to make money out of other people's work. what do you mean it does what it wants?it's a bug,bugs need to be solved.we should demand from the developers to work not defend their laziness.tf2 is made on the same engine and it does not have this bug it's not like this bug is unfixable.so shut the fuck up.
Stop blaming Garry's Mod devs for this. All gamemodes besides regular sandbox are unofficial and the devs have nothing to do with them. As for the game relying of community content ? This is LITERALLY what it was made for. Garry simply wanted to make a template for sandboxing with Source engine and he delivered. He owes you nothing more.
i never said that i was forced,i just saw how much people loved it,how they claimed that"you can't go wrong with buying gmod".2 hours were not enough to understand how bad this game was.
Oh my god, @garry just please give this idiot his money back, this is so awful to read. I tought even braindead people could enjoy Garry's mod, guess I was wrong.
seriously addictive?do you even know how addiction works? i really don't see how waiting for half an hour to connect to a map which is usually bad is with any way addictive,unless if you are talking about the totally boring single player mode,where all i do i fly around spawn some shit and stick them together.i don't see how is that suppossed to be fun.also some people told me that i need to know programming for the best single player experience(because that's what makes the games fun,going to programming schools). but fine,if you want me to give it "an other chance"then just tell me what to do.i really want to give it an other chance,i tried it multiple times(i have 27 hours on this thing)and i really didn't see anything that justifies it.
Talk about being so entitled that your head can't even be seen that far up your own ass.
please give more details about the whole process of downloading maps ahead of time. so i don't need to code,okay fine i admit i was wrong about the language thing. i complain that everything is too lazy made,and i don't refuse to search,i just didn't think of it,i will do it from now,but again this game should not require me to search. the workshop does not seem to have anything interesting,i found some maps where i can do exactly the same things that i can do in the default maps,some other items that i can spawn like cars and models,and some gamemode thing that only does not let me use my weapons for some reason. none of these adds anything to the experience. i tried to craft an airplane once which flew and it got boring 2 minutes later. what the fuck am i suppossed to do in the single player? nobody wants bugs to be unsolved?yes sure,they want these bugs to be solved so much that they defend the laziness of the developers here in the forum instead of agreeing with me. team fortress 2 is made on the exact same engine and it does not have such bug.not to mention that it receives bug fixes for years now.i don't see what's so difficult about fixing it.the developers are just lazy that's all.
Gonna explain something to you that you clearly don't understand since your head is so far up there. This game, Garry's Mod? It's a sandbox game. This means that it's a big game that you can do WHATEVER your little heart desires. This also means that the game is mainly ran and has content created for it by the community. So mileage will differ from content to content and server to server. So the download times? The "poorly coded gamemodes"? All on the community and their servers hosting them, as well as your own network and distance from them. Which I personally believe the long download times is on you. Yes. You will be expected to search for what you want for your own time and experience. Stop being lazy. Stop whining about things outside of our power.
whatever my heart desires? can i craft things like in minecraft?things don't spawn when i right click on them so no exactly. can i play overwatch with bot teamates and opponents?no. can i built a robot that shoots things?no,or at least not without programming. weird i have never seen a game that takes so long to load a map.are you sure that my location has something to do with it? okay i will search more.
Yes.
have you tried left clicking?
isnt lifewill a little young to be on the fp forums
left clicking activates whatever weapon you are holding.
Akbar Akbar, a powerful vampire, was burnt when the Mother and Father, Akasha and Enkil, were put into the sun. He resides in Antioch, in search of the Mother and Father, and leaves his victims on the steps of the Temple. Akbar threatens to kill Pandora unless Marius allows him to see and drink from the ancient couple. He drains Pandora to near death before Marius allows him to see the Mother and Father, and is later destroyed by Akasha when he attempts to drink from her. https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/114748/b7f8bcb9-8267-4271-8aa5-7efcd27d5abe/image.png
Press Q and click on what you want to spawn lol
Yes. It requires you to actually get off your lazy ass and learn how to code, or find someone whose made it already. Someone doesn't buy you a bunch of legos already pre-built into things you can do (unless your parents hated creativity). No, they buy you it, and you get to work on making your own fun. Seriously, stop being such a self-entitled baby wanting to be spoon-fed.

Heres your food, you'll have to find your own spoon now.
If you can't decide you hate a game in 2 hours you might be screwed, because that's the refund policy of Steam. Don't think Steam will do anything, only thing you can do is to see if another store has a better refund policy and go use that in the future. It's a miracle they even added it at all, it's one that was backed by a lot of people being legally pissed at them. Obviously I agree that it'd be nice to have more than two hours but it's a good enough time that it protects people from abusing it. To be honest though I'm happy with the way it is.
The answer to all of these is yes. Even the Overwatch bit, you can absolutely go download Overwatch bots on the Workshop and have a deathmatch with them. Use your imagination. You can do anything you want but you complain about not having a fixed set of objectives. Make up your own then.
