Best mods to get right off the bat?

Hi,

I just bought Gmod 10 and I was wondering what mods are recommended to have for build servers/independent building. Model packs, etc. are what I’m looking for.

Thanks.

wire
phx
spacebuild model pack

If your not a ten year old, dismemberment mod, and also get Adv dupe, star gate and g combat, they are all pretty cool.

In addition to Prismatex, get Stargate.

i should make a mod and name it after myself
good idea

Oh, also a location to where I could get these would be awesome.

you can also use svn

Use SVN. Do not use garrysmod.org unless you can’t find your content anywhere else. If you use garrysmod.org, you most likely will find loads of outdated content, that most likely will NOT work on other servers. Most servers use the most current wire and PHX from SVN.

DO not get Spacebuild Ever.

Get PHX SVN.
Wire SVN
Unnofiical Wire Extras
Extra NPC pack

Just because YOU can’t use something, doesn’t mean it’s shit. Dumb or disagree ratings come from people who think Spacebuild or Wire or any other addon is shit because they are too fucktarded to use it. Bad Reading/Bad Spelling ratings come from people who don’t know how to use the rating system.

Also, get the “Look Back Through The GMod Discussion Forums” addon, you’ll get all you need there

SBMP is worse then PHX. PHX can at least be useful for building a frame, SBMP just makes everything for you. A brain dead monkey could build a ship with SBMP.

As for addons,
Wiremod SVN
PHX3 SVN
SmartSnap
Easy Precision
Weight Stool
Stacker Stool
Conna’s Tool Pack.

Also, some links. To SVNs, for which you need an SVN client and some Garrysmod.orgs.
Just copy and pasted this from my server MOTD.

Like others:
(pretty much copying the above poster)

Wiremod from SVN
PHX3 from SVN
SmartSnap
Easy Precision (Very recommended)
Weight stool
Stacker stool

These are not recommended by me, but you may need them to join a selection of servers:
Gcombat
Easy Engine
Various Model packs

I can use Spacebuild, a F*cking 4 year old could get the hang of it in 15 minutes, i think is stupid and unnecessary that it basically builds the ships for you in sections and all you have to do is put it together, which IMO requires no skill, its a huge and unnecessary addon which anyone could do without, considering they have PHX.

Hey, uh, what’s SVN?
I googled it but I have no idea exactly how to use it.


**SBMP != SPACEBUILD. THEY ARE NOT THE SAME ADDON. LEARN EXACTLY WHAT EACH ADDON IS BEFORE YOU POST SHIT ABOUT IT.**

OK, thread, carry on.

The Dumb Spammer was here

SubVersioning, basically lets you update a file as it changes, instead of updating the entire thing and wasting bandwidth/ time. There is a very comprehensive tutorial in this section, made by Divran. I don’t have a link, but it’s not normally too hard to find.

Thanks.

Another “wut mds shud i gt/” thread. :suicide:
I know you’re new, and I deeply respect your good spelling and grammar, but there’s way too many threads like this, new to the forums or not.

for building: wire, phx

for fun: garrys bombs 3

Someone should sticky one together then. A nice “getting started new to gmod?” like thing.
