Where are Pointshop Models?

Click the dumb button as much as you want, but where are the models for the pointshop stored? I’ve searched endlessly in the GMOD folder and I can not find them. I’ve done a computer wide search for things like w_357.mdl and haven’t come up with anything and yet they show up in pointshop.

ITEM.Model = 'models/weapons/w_357.mdl'

They’re in the garrysmod/models/weapons/w_357.mdl folder or your download(s) folder.

If it’s on a hosted server then chances are it’s in a shared resource space which you don’t have access to.


They are in your Garrysmod vpk. Which is located in the Garrysmod/Garrysmod dir and can be opened with GCFScape.

  1. Computer’s download folder or GMOD
    2.I don’t have the models folder in my gmod directory.

it’s in garrysmod/models


You can rate me dumb all you want. That is where the files are located.

no, the files are located in garrysmod/models.

You can try to ‘show me up’ again if you’re really that thick but good luck trying to use vpks in the addon structure.

Like seriously, who packs their stuff as VPKs? Absolutely no one.

He was asking for the default pointshop models, like the HL2 magnum. Not custom ones that are downloaded.

I know. They’re still stored in the virtual directory of garrysmod/models though. There isn’t a way you can really “reference” the vpk. Any model, default, workshop, or downloaded, is stored in garrysmod/models. Same with sounds, materials, scripts, and LUA files.

Yes, but he was asking for the direct location, which was in the VPK. If he wanted a virtual directory, then the pointshop code already provides it.

Why would he need the direct location? Does he want to make a retexture or something? Not very relevant to pointshop.

I think he was just curious since it wasn’t in the normal garrysmod/models folder.
