Garry's Mod or GMod is a modification for the Source game
engine. It is a nonlinear physics and role playing video game that allows
to manipulate objects and experiment with physics.
Garry's Mod was created in 2004
by Garry Newman's Team
of Developers. It started out as a mod that allowed
users to rope things to go together, and it made the pistol
shoot out manhacks and other things to build. Since then, the game
through various versions, adding
more and more features until it became the game
based mod it is today. After the tenth version
of Garry's Mod, the mod was no longer referred by its number
called Garry's Mod.
Garry's Mod allows
players to manipulate props from any Source
installed on their computer (or ones created by the community) using the Physics Gun, or Physgun, a blue version
of Half-Life 2's Gravity Gun (the same model
as the Super Gravity Gun at the end of Half Life 2 as well as some
parts of Half-Life 2: Episode One) that allows
objects to be picked up from any distance, adjusted
in mid-air and frozen in place. A second, multi-purpose gun called the Tool Gun can perform many tasks such as weld objects together or rope them together with ropes or controllable
winches, plus hanging lights and lamps, doors and buttons, or whatever the community is able to code
it to perform.
