The Walt Garry World/Garryland Project

Alright folks, lets cut the blablablayadada and say it:
Garry’s Mod needs a recreation of Walt Disney World/Disneyland

Why, well, I shall give you some reasons.
**1. **Garry’s Mod is a game that has many options. Imagine this: your favorite Disney theme park with more interaction and the option to design your own car and take a picture? How about that? Also, Garry’s Mod would open more options to the recreation of the parks.

**2. **You don’t like something at Disneyland? Would love to change an attraction in Walt Disney World? Well, in this project you have a chance. After all, its our recreation. If we don’t like it, we will remove it and create our own mix of Walt Disney World and Disneyland.

**3. **I have an acess to lots of sounds and soundtracks from around the parks. So we got at least the music part guaranteed with no problems.

**4. **Some people already re-created Tower of Terror in GMod and the Haunted Mansion in Counter Strike, showing everyone that this is not too hard. Thats why this project will focus on getting everyone together to do one big aim - to recreate the entire Walt Disney World resort.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present you:


  • The project’s aim is to bring the whole community together and create the definitive version of the Walt Disney World or Disneyland resort on Garry’s Mod, with new options only available at the game and things just created on it.


  • As said before, the aim is to create the definitive version so both singleplayer and multiplayer can enjoy.


  • No. I will contribute too, not mapping, but doing all the sound things. I have an 2GB collection of Disney Parks sound effects and soundtracks for attractions. The idea is not that you do something and I get the credit. I will explain more as we go.


  • Good thing you asked. As everyone thinks, a big map will just be laggy or/and won’t even be playable. Thats why we will divide the map in sections.


  • Either we release just that and call it Garryland. Also add updates, new rides, new things and Holiday/Halloween overlays…
  • Or do the other parks of Walt Disney World, and call it Walt Garry World. You choose it.
    (Both are just ideas.)


  • We will first start with Main Street. Then head to Adventureland. Next is Frontierland, then Fantasyland and Toontown. The last one will be Tomorrowland.


  • We currently require:
  • Mappers
  • Modelers/Texture Dudes
    Thanks for looking at the project. We will go steady and slow. If we need to stop, we will stop. One thing at a time, thats how we will reach our goal!

Great idea, just you have not started, I hope this works out.
Its a bit to much too.

Just like I said: “We will do it slowly, steady as she goes, so everyone can do your jobs well”.
Thanks for the comment.

How may I help? I can’t map to well.

You can help by doing researches on informations and what attractions can we port to GMod as well as recruiting some good mappers.

Very few people have done amusement rides in Gmod, because they are usually made in Gmod rather than Hammer. The only person I’ve seen make a ride in Hammer was Dasmatze, but he seems to have disappeared again.

can hammer cope with this much brushwork?!

Yeah, that got me thinking…

DasMatze did it well, but he wanted his ride to be physics based… Most rides here will folow a pre-made track.

Hmm… I’ll be honest, I would LOVE to help. I think it’s a great idea. Anything I can do? I’m sure it would take several mappers to do this. It would be a miracle for just one to do this. I may not be the best mapper ever, but when I work at it, I don’t do too bad. I made this:

That was a pretty good effort. I could do better though. I constantly am learning.

Looks AWSOME if you need to test any thing PM me.

id love to help you with any research im a total disney fanatic and ive always wanted this so much

You forgot Star Tours… And a bunch of other rides… I could help with this thing, it looks like it has future!

I loved that map, simply beautiful. Your help would be greatly appreciated! If you can call more friends, especially mappers, we should get a team up shortly!

Remember: Not only mappers will be needed. If we have anything like parades, we will need to have people who do skins and models, since the stock HL2 NPCs won’t help.

You and me both, pal. For now, I am just going to repeat: mappers, modelers, skinners and also, people who can do research for photos or anything so we can use as base for the videos

As I said before, those are the basics. If we choose to do a Garryland, more rides like Star Tours, Honey I Shrunk the Audience, Storybook Land and yadayada will be added. But if we choose to do Walt Garry Land, we will do Epcot, Hollywood Studios and more.

Remember folks, Walt Disney once said: If we can dream it, we can do it!

P.S.: I will be at WDWNTunes, where you can listen to music from around the parks and chat with other people.

Steam group now! Zuimzado, create a steam group and invite me. It would make gathering mappers much easier. Steam ID: live4u123

Right-o. Creating it guys, please wait!

Link to group?

Join there, folks, group is open.

So, when are we going to start?

We will start today, but slowly.
Let’s begin, first of all, we need the buildings for Main Street U.S.A with developer textures. Take the time you need and want, we aren’t requesting it NOW.
Here are some pictures:


  • Railroad to Main Street U.S.A

This looks like a good project but keep in mind Hammer can only have so many brushes/entities in any map. You’re probably going to have to scale back on detail to get the whole map down, even to the point of completely removing parts of the park or whole sections.

Also, bear in mind that if you’re planning to make the whole park (Animal Kingdom, Epcot, etc), you’re not going to fit every “sub-park” into one map. If you plan on doing the whole park, you’re going to have to divide each “sub-park” into it’s own map.

That having been said, I might be able to help with this map. I’m not the best mapper in the world, but I have mapped for a good while and I do have (some) experience. I might be able to help with other things, too.
