Gmod "Shutting Off", then the server?

Hello Facepunch. I have been having recent problems on my DarkRP server where Garrys Mod will literally “shut off” then moments later, we crash. Here are the symptons of my baby:

  • You will not be able to spawn props
  • You will not be able to activate toolguns. You can select tools, but using them is impossible.
  • You will not be able to see your Phys Gun beam.

Shortly after these things all happen, it will crash about 1-2 minutes later. Rarely will it recover from itself and the server will return to normal. This ONLY occurs when we have a high population (about 20+) I am really not sure what it is, nor do I have any leads. I’m hoping someone on here could help me out.


I’m no expert with DarkRP, but this sounds a lot more like a server issue than the gamemode itself.

Yeah, that’s what I’ve been thinking as well. But it’s so spontaneous and weird, I just don’t know where to start.

Lol make a prop spawn log. My guess is someone is spamming props.

That could be possible. We did have a similar instance. Could you guide me on how to make a prop_log?
