How to get better graphics even while on random servers?

I was wondering if there are any updated/up to date tutorials to make gmod look amazing graphics wise, while still stable. I was really looking for like texture overhauls, blood textures, bullet hole textures, etc. I’m not really interested in like immersive addons that add leaning, recoil, etc.

Go search the workshop. You’ll find some terrible “Realism Mods”
