Please post FEEDBACK. THANKS! (SVN ADRESSES ARE LISTED LATER IN POST!)
WARNING: Some mods are HUGE; make sure you have enough disk space to install. DO NOT UPLOAD ANY SVN MODS TO GARRYSMOD.ORG. This makes the developers very angry!
Also, The more files you have in your garrysmod folder the slower garrysmod will load. This is because the program must load all your mods!

INSTALLING MODS USING SVN
*If you are in need of troubleshooting post the trouble on this thread. Comments are also welcomed. FEEDBACK is awesome!
Using the following method you will always have the most up-to-date version of the mod available at the touch of a few buttons. But getting this setup can be quite complicated.
This may be alot to digest and will probably take a lot of time, be prepaired to spend a few hours if you plan to install all the following mods.
Many of the most popular and useful mods use SVN. Yes, it is worth the wait!
WHAT IS SVN?
SVN means the most up-to-date version of the mod.
It is the project’s set of working files that have been edited since the last release came out.
HOW TO DOWNLOAD WIREMOD FROM SVN: Wiremod is a mod that is essential for garrysmod. Follow the steps and Install wiremod. *HINT: The addons folder is Usually located in: C:/ProgramFiles/Steam/Steamapps/YOUR STEAM NAME/garrysmod/garrysmod 1.

Make sure you remove the "*wire* " folder from inside your addons folder 3. If you have Tortoise SVN, right click the addon folder in your garrysmod folder and choose "*SVN Checkout* " HINT: Wiremod.com sometimes goes ofline - If you get one of these error messages (**Cannot connect to host OR Unknown Host Name**) try another time. Wiremod.com goes ofline sometimes. 4. Enter this address: "*https://svn.wiremod.com/svn/wiremod* " If prompted for a username and password use anonsvn for username and anonsvn for password 5.
