Ok im doing it now… u think this will definatly fix it?

Don’t know, it’s just a suggestion.

didnt work :frowning:

Don’t know then mate :frown:

I think it’s your garrysmod settings.
A friend of me had all his settings low, and the whole map was black cause he spawned a really small prop.
So I suggest to turn some settings on and off, to check if that the problem is.

i tryed that… should i try turning them up and down again?

It’s obviously due to shadows being fucked up (flashlight fixed it so it’s not textures!). Try changing up the shadows settings!!

mmk,thanxs for the tips, ill try editing them/turning them off… maybe its because of somthing i added? like maybe phx or wire?
