I’ve had Gmod for a couple days and it is both brilliantly fun and brilliantly confusing. So basically here are my questions:
Some weapons won’t show up on the spawn menu. This is one example: http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=89612 I upload to addons first, then when it didn’t work, I uploaded to gmod directory, then tried lua/weapons and still don’t show up anywhere. Am I snowballing by constantly extracting to different folders? What’s the difference between extracting to the directory and extracting to the addons folder? What about the difference between hitting the “Extract to” button and drag-and-dropping them? I’ve tried searching for these answers and I get lost every time.
And how do you apply skins to the models in Garry’s mod? I’ve seen endless tutorials on how to download skins to your gmod folder but not on how to do it in-game.
I don’t have TortoiseSVN or any other extra programs so if there are any additional programs I need then directing me would be awesome. I greatly appreciate the time anyone takes to answer my noobish questions.
