I know a lot of people will not want to hear this, but gmodtheater will not be appearing on gmod13.
Its been many long years but I think its time to let the project rest. I want to thank everyone for their support whether it was morally, suggestion wise, or financially.
Gmod theater started over 3 years ago as spare time project while I was in college. Over the years it has evolved and become quite large, nothing is really left of that original code base. After all this time I have honestly lost all interest in the project, there’s not much more I can do, sure I can add more models and items but they don’t really “add” to the gamemode.
The scripts of gmodtheater are very messy, as anyone that has looked at the clientsides knows, this is mostly due to me being very messy with it (especially the older parts. my excuse being I was less educated). Every time I look at the scripts it pains me to just fix things and not rewrite the entire gamemode.
I now work full time in the game industry as a Programmer, my job eats up a solid 8-10hrs a day leaving little for much else. (I also absolutely love my job so its hardly work)
I have a handful of side projects I slowly grind away on (none related to gmod or gmodtheater), and the idea of having to put what little time I have for them aside so I can fix a gamemode I can barely look at anymore is almost painful to consider.
All that said, I have little doubt gmodtheater alternatives will pop up for gmod13! I cant wait to see what someone else can put together and accomplish.
Thanks Everyone for your support.
“Will Gmod Theater ever come back?”
“Will you release the scripts? / Can I have the gamemode? / Can I use it as reference?”
“Is gmod theater not ready for g13?”
- Kinda irrelevant, but this was getting asked a lot so I may as well answer here. The scripts are mostly ready, there’s a bunch of quality of life stuff and menus that are broken.
“Will the server still be up running another gamemode?”
- I have arranged to have the server running for the rest of October, afterwards I am no longer paying for it, so I cannot tell you what will become of it.
“What will happen to the website?”
Feel free to ask any other questions I will get to them as I can.
