Animated Vector Background

Originally uploaded by Corey_Faure on 17th December 2010 04:33 am

FIRST OFF :: Alright, I know that there are tons of backgrounds on Garry's Mod, and just about none of which are any good, so if you want me to remove this, I will if most the users want me to. Just say so in the comments nicely.
Okay, I noticed the quality in most backgrounds is unbearable, so I decided to make my own that spins and actually looks decent. I even had to make the Garry's Mod logo from scratch so that JPEG artifacts weren't an issue.
The background has 59 frames going at 30 FPS for a really nice smooth spin. I added some bonus music as well that fits the mood of the game.

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
            • Animated Vector Background <-- 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.
