    Nope, in the 'mods' section of.. Free Stuff, I believe it is, there's version 9 available.

    I did love this game, though I had a lack of awesome people to play it with. My creations included a huge spaceship with an even huger hammer on top, a chariot driven by roller mines and a weird flying hovercraft thingie driven and steered by jacks (that one was pretty ingenious in my opinion).

    Because of my crazy time zone (gmt +1) I doubt I can play with the PA crowd though, if there is one.

    Is there one?

    It links to the website but there's no actual download link available there. Strange.

    edit: In reply to Steam having the ver.9 GMOD.

    This is why I should try things out before talking about them as fact. Hmm.. well, there you go, learn something new every day.

    SPACEBUILD!

    IT HAS FUCKING OUTER SPACE.

    http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=29356

    Also life support, so instead of floating in space forever you freeze to death/run of out oxygen.

    http://www.garrysmod.org/downloads/?a=view&id=29357




    Best shit ever in spacebuild: me and my friends were having a race to the moon. I finished my spaceship first. So naturally I drop a timed nuke and hightail it the fuck out of there. I'm almost at the moon when it detonates, apparently not far enough from earth though though, and it unwelds my entire spaceship. I was sent careening through space in an airboat chair for a little bit before I ran out of oxygen.



    Also this:

    Spacebuild can be very fun, if you know what you're doing. Extra points if you know the console commands to change the models of the various devices!

    Oh also, that zombie mod that people used to play a lot (do they still?) is lots of fun. Most maps end up with the people barricading a small room, and then the zombies win by throwing wave after wave of their own men (and headcrabs) at them.


    I need to play GMod now.

    If anyone wants to throw up a server, I am totally up for a game. I kick the balls off of GMOD.

    I played up till version 9 with no mods. From the first beta to version 9 with only basic props. I can build soo much stuff with just boxes and shit.

    The Metal Mallard's structure is mostly done.

    I just need to figure out what type of landing gear I want.
    I went with a bomber instead of a passenger liner. Theres going to be one sittable seat near the bomb bay, for a player to operate the bomb bay doors and ordinance. The rear gondola seat will be for turrets and the like, while the pilot sits atop. That fin mod really helped too. I need to put this into glide testing. I also added a hinged door on the right lower side.

    I LOVE Gary's mod.

    I'm not very good at all, but I've made a few funny things, including a hovercouch that shoots and a death machine (a big wheel with a bench on the side and a turret at the end. It spins around and either hits stuff really hard, shoots stuff, or both)


    I still haven't figured out how to put in other mods, except for that space map that was in the video posted earlier (which is a must have by the way).

    I downloaded the Pheonix mods, but where do I put all the files? In game I go to where the items should be listed, but all the little pictures that should show what the item is shows "ERROR" in big red letters. HALP.

    Also, Hover-Tubs are cool.

    If you think that's bad, the Pyro has exactly the opposite problem. That fireproof suit of his fills up pretty fast.

    I think we should have competitions on who can build the best "what" in multiple categories including, but not limited to, catapults, combustion engines, flying machines, automobiles, boats, and fruit fuckers.

    For Gods sake, look at this thing.
    It has an arm cannon, that shoots cargo containers.

    Just a note: It wasn't purchased by Valve. Garry was going to stop working on Gmod after version 9 since it was eating up a huge portion of his time and he wasn't getting paid for it. Eventually Valve convinced him to make a new version to sell on Steam.

    I've always thought a 'Wacky Races' or Scrapheap Challenge/Junkyard Wars style game would be perfect for this, give people a whole bunch of crap to work with, let them make a vehicle of choice, then race it around some kind of circuit while trying to blow the crap out of each other.

    Those are always great. Until someone (usually me >_>) starts attaching explosives to the undersides of all the loose objects and setting them off at random :lol:

    It pees when he burns?



    Wouldn't that be the opposite? :)

    You'll need HL2 or HL2:DM at least. If you have CSS or DoD:S then you can use their assets in Gmod also.
