So, after a very long time away, I’ve decided to come back and get a couple old mods to play with some friends for an upcoming birthday. Workshop’s worked fine for the occasional random night we’ve played for the past couple of years, but nostalgia was on my mind this time. Looking back, I can’t find the old Garrysmod.org, or whatever the exact URL was. Looking back, most of the Gmod forums around here seem to be deleted.
As far as I can tell, there’s no sticky. There’s no explanation. The closest I’ve found was mention of some accidental deletion of the old site at a new .org, deprived of any of the old mods, much the same as the workshop is. Much of the old mods I’ve loved are gone, save a couple left behind on old hard drives.
Not much a complaint, and maybe this is a support request (Not quite sure of that), and I’d hate to ask if it’s in some sticky I’ve missed, but I can’t find it if it exists.
What exactly happened? What’s the history of this? Are all the old mods and all the old posts on the forum gone? Any trace or archive of them, or just gone without recourse? Above any need to find them, I’ve spent a lot of time here and a lot of time on Gmod. More than anything, I just sort of wonder the history of it, what exactly happened.
So really, like the title says, where are we now? What’s the status of the mod, the community, the old mods and the game itself?
