New Explosion Effect

Originally uploaded by The Vman on 10th April 2011 10:30 am

Tired of the drab old default explosion? Wish you could to something to make gmod look like a game that came out later than 2004? Here's a fancy ass new explosion particle. Affects most explosions except for dynamite and grenades.
Totally stole the script to get the effect to show up from this guy:
(who in turn stole it from some other guy)
Youtube demonstration:
(FYI, the FPS drop is because of Fraps, not the explosion)
Facepunch thread:

This download looks like an unpacked addon. You can either convert the files to an addon or merge the folders in the zip with the folders in your Garry's Mod folder.

Convert to Addon (Recommended)

You should end up with a directory structure similar to below:

  • steamapps
    • common
      • garrysmod
        • garrysmod
          • addons
            • New Explosion Effect <-- Make this folder!
              • e.g.
              • lua
              • maps
              • materials
              • models
              • etc

Or, Merge Folders (Not recommended)

This option makes it difficult to remove the content should you no longer want it. Merge any folders from the zip with the equivalent folders in your Garry's Mod folder.

Don't know where the Garry's Mod folder is or how to extract zip files? See more useful installation tips.
