How install an addon (script) on Gmod

The question is often asked. Unfortunately, sometimes, we conclude that there is a bug when it is enough to simply install the addon in the location intended for it and do not forget to unzip it.

What are addons? They are addons on Gmod, which will help you to better share the contents of your servers, mods, gamemode, lua scripts, models, textures (materials), audio files (sound). So your users will have on their hard drive the models and materials. Because yes, it is not the server that sends all this to your clients. They download it from the fastDL or workshop.

We will take as an example a simple script like the whitelist : Job whitelist system

I) Unzip the file nordahl_whitelist_job.zip.
II) Copy the extracted folder to the Addons folder : Steam/steamapps/common/GarrysMod/garrysmod/addons

III) After installation restart your server Garry's Mod.

๐Ÿ’ก Avoid using script refresh commands after installation. A good restart of your server is preferable, it has already solved installation problems and it is clean.

โš ๏ธ N'installez jamais vos addons dans le dossier lua au risque de faire des mauvaises maniement pouvant casser votre Gmod, ainsi entraรฎner un mauvais fonctionnement de votre serveur et des addons installรฉ : /Steam/steamapps/common/GarrysMod/garrysmod/lua
