I have a few things to say in this topic. First is that I need to know what the exact names of all, or at least a few of, the playermodels in G-mod are. I found out that typing in console "setmodel (model)" will change the player's character to something else. I have found so far, zombie, barney, alyx, gordon, and a few others, but I want to know how to become a watermelon or headcrab. I know watermelon is somehow possible, because I saw someone playing as one half underground with their gun floating in mid-air. But I most want to make my char look like gordon frohman. Either him or Barney are the two that most resemble me. And what's the best thing that you've created in G-mod? So far, my best is a shipping container turned into a car. I'd post a picture, but it requires a web address. But it has dynamite on the front and two airboats stuck to the sides. I put a pod in it for driving although it is perfectly ok to stand at the entrance of it. What would be really fun to attack other players with? I don't just go around killing people, but I can't help but make nothing but death machines.:lol:
Oh, and is it possible to save a single model instead of re-building it each time I play on a new server? or do I have to only keep them from saved games in single player?
There are save lua's and SWEP's on the Gmod forums. Take a look there. As for the model of a melon, you would have to mess around with the files I think. Probably sticking the melon model in with the NPC models. But I dont know, I haven't ever tried something like that. As for contraptions, I got lots of em. Here's a few I can remember:
Airboat turned into fully functional airplane Dropship made of Dumpsters Motor Home made out of a Cargo container(hollow) and some blast doors Slow bomb(Baloon'd explosive barrel, thrown with orange grav gun, detonates on impact, and falls really really slow) Cannon, using giant concrete pipe and dynamite Cannon, using two logs and a barrel, and dynamite Cannon, using premade cannon model, and dynamite Cannon, using Premade cannon model+ammo clip, and dynamite Cannon, spring powered(NON FUNCTIONAL, spazzed out and started bouncing around the map) Catapult, using Giant column, bathtub, and elastic Armored buggy, with scrap metal 1 and 2 AT-AT, out of a cargo container, and metal beams(NON FUNCTIONAL, just fell over) House on the lake of gm_construct Giant tower+Elevator, made from hollow cargo containers and blast doors Cargo ship, made of blast doors and airboat, one small one, and one too big for gm_construct's pond Boat from the truck model Lots of elastic "push to open" doors. Person sized, and garage door sized Race track, using gm_construct, and wooden beams with blue rope between them Go cart, made of boat doors, sign poles(axels), tires, trashcan, airboat seat(instead of pod), sawblade(steering wheel, just for looks), engine, muffler, small pipe, filing cabinet, lamp, and a barrel. An NPC arena, made out of blast doors. Two chambers, seperated by a rising blast door. Had openable lids on the top, for spawning. Several pictures, attempted to be used as PoTD for this website(only one successfull so far) A ride-able bike, made of the bike prop, and an invisible'd buggy A surf board out of a blast door. A Giant, 4 story tall, 90+degree ramp, on freespace map. A giant car flinger for the above mentioned giant, 4 story tall, 90+degree ramp, out of a cargo container, sliders, and elastic(park your car in front of it, hit the dynamite button to blow the restraint loose, then punch the gas as the cargo container shoves you towards the ramp). A building out of blast doors A building out of cargo containers and blast doors. A mess. A water monster, using myself and a friend who used the water material on me, making me nearly invisible in water. Invisible zombies, using the color gun on zombies Armored Antlion Guard, welding blast doors around it. "Mechanized" NPC's, by non-permenant-welding scrap metal onto Combine and Rebels, and putting an explosive barrel on their back, for a nice explosion effect when they take too much fire An exploding car, made out of a blast door cube, non permenant welded together, with a dynamite in the middle. Roll it along, then boom, car parts everywhere. Slightly amusing. Should try elasticing the parts together, so it pulls itself back together after the explosion Thats about all I can think of.

Best thing I ever made? Hmm.. Oh yeah, my Rube Goldman. That thing took me forever to build, 9 hours I believe.
I like that armored antlion guard, I need to try that sometime.:lol: I also found out that poison headcrabs are not affected by any outside force, so tying them with a rope of any kind does absolutely nothing. So I went crazy with that and tied two shipping containers to it's sides, and whenever it jumped, the containers would soon follow, crushing anyithing in front of it.:lol:

I don't think my garrys mod can even run for 9 hours, let alone me playing it that long.
You can play it for 1 hour and save in single player mode. Then come back and re play every so often. But another problem I forgot to mention, is that on occasion the chat or any other messaging or wording looks like this [|\#-]-=-\| or something similar to that. li\e [his #s#ally.
Thats a text corruption bug. I don't think it will show up unless you are playing on a server, disconnect, and rejoin another server without starting Gmod. Because I know that happens with your spawn menu's pictures. But, your console won't be corrupted, I don't think. So you can check that. I think.
Actually, changing server doesn't always help as 90% of the time I am playing, there is a noticeable text corruption. And it even happens in single player. But although the console is usually fine, sometimes when the words are REALLY messed up, the console has absolutely no readable text at all and I can't even see what I am typing, everything is just squares.
Jager_57;3307728Actually, changing server doesn't always help
No, I was saying that I think that is the problem. When you join into multiple games without restarting the mod, I think it causes the corruption. I know it corrupts the spawn menu's pictures.
