I purchased a new computer very recently, one that is capable of running almost anything one it’s best quality (which I funny because my other computer was a crappy lappy) and I wanted to know, what are the best recommended mods, models, and tweaks for making Garrysmod look the best?
I have done some searching on sights like Gamebanana and found some pretty high quality HD stuff as far as models, and i collected HD sounds from other sources (Mostly HL2 Mods) and other games as well, and I even gathered up several addons before switching computers. While I do remember some of the major tweaks, I cannot find the old addons anymore. One was an addon that added enhanced bullet impact effects (that were highly reminiscent of BF3), yet I cannot find it on Garrysmod.org anymore.
I also want to see other suggestions for upgrading the graphics. I already run it on it’s best quality plus I add two console commands that I strongly recommend:
phys_pushscale [# Value] - This turns back on the ragdoll and prop physics that were present in HL2 depending on how high you set the variable. No more corpses simply falling down after explosions. I usually set this to 15 for the best results.
mat_motion_blur_intensity - Setting a value after these changes the effect of the motion blur in game. So If you like SMOD motion blur, set it to something high (for both, I usually use 5). Be warned, setting the values too high causes the screen to jitter when moving the mouse slowly.
So what other suggestions do you have?
