Well, maybe not completely confused.
The games I have are Portal, TF2, HL2 with E1 and E2. I’m running the Steam version of GMOD, if that matters.
I got Gmod just three days ago. Already clocked in 18 hours into it. I still have no real idea what I’m doing. The first thing I made was a box car. Took me three tries to get it right. When I did, I promptly smashed it into a wall. I’ve now managed to make flying box cars that can turn with thrusters. I’m pretty proud of myself.
Except then I see other people with these massive starships and vehicles and auto locking turrets, and I’m amazed. I can’t even get most of my plates and whatnot to line up properly, much less make something that complex. I’ve tried looking for help, but there don’t appear to be any “Here’s how to not suck” guides.
The next problem is that my addons don’t seem to be working properly. I got every addon from http://bunglist.com/gmodwiki/Required_Addons , except the ones that say “don’t get this if you’re getting this”. I’m pretty sure there was only one of those anyway. The SVN client appears to be working well, and I followed the instructions on that site to the letter. I’m still getting errors and the like from things that won’t work properly, or models just showing up as massive ERRORS. And on top of that, this added even MORE things that I don’t know how to use.
An example of my failings in this game (XD): I tried making an auto turret from a guide, but I can’t seem to get the hula dancer to follow me. Eventually I gave up.
Basically, I love this game. I just wish I could find some help so that I know what I’m doing, and some guides for what addons I SHOULD be using, and what I should move on to once I’ve gotten better. Also, just some general advice would be glorious too.
