Everything is gone when I load a saved game

So I’ve been working on a save for about a week or so, filling a map full of scenes and such. I had no problem loading until recently, when I load my save everything is gone, no errors or anything, just as if you would start over from scratch on a new map.
I find it strange since this never had happened to me before (started playing Gmod in ~2008). Yet the image where you load you can still see the props and such, is there anyway to fix this or is it just to start over from scratch? And if I have to start over from scratch, how can I prevent this from happening again?


I remember when I made that save, the save didn’t show up when I looked for it in the saves section when I decided to exit the game, so I decided to make an extra save - and then it showed up, and now when I load the save is empty.


Same place as the tumbnail photo, but empty…

run around hitting everything with your body where the props used to be, should make them show up
if not, use physgun and do the same thing

It’s a Garry’s Mod glitch that doesn’t load saves with lots of props, had this problem before.

Nothing happened

So you mean its impossible to make a maps with lots of props in it? Sorry for the late reply, been away for a while

Console log after you load that save please.

Can you replicate it on gm_construct? Can you replicate it on that map with 1 prop? Can you post the save?

I am having this exact same problem :frowning: everything is just gone, and if I try and spawn props on the map they just disappear, and I have to start a whole new game, only for it to happen all over again :frowning: is there anything I can do to fix this?
