Newbie Needing a Start

Hey guys can some of you help me out?

Ok I’m new to gmod so we all know im a newbie now. So heres my question, "Where do I put the files at? Like is there a tutorial explaing, where weapons, Maps, Player Models, etc… go at?

All I need is a push start.

C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\YourLoginUsername\garrysmod\garrysmod

When you want to install add-ons you go to C:\Program Files\Steam\Steamapps\Steamname\Garrysmod\Garrysmod\addons. This is the file for SWEP’s and other things, no-one told me that when I first started. http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/ is a good place to get shit.

ok cause ive been adding them like i do in Halo CE, What ever it ends with or is folder in i place it in Gmod. So like the lua files go in the Lua folder and sounds go in sounds, Right?

Most addons you download will have an info.txt in them.
If it does put it in the addons folder
Unless it is a gamemode
Simple as that

i will give you a head newbie
