The First

The First

Originally uploaded by German Sniper on 20th December 2010 21:13 pm

On 24th December, 2004, Garry's Mod 1.0 was released. For the first days of this mod there were very few players. All the players were noobs who did not know what they were doing. They created simple creations that paved the way for master players, but back in those days simple wild life like the Desert wondering Greko's often looted players' creations. As players became more and more advanced they learned ways to defeat these creatures and drive them out of the mod. The map seen in this background is gm_flatgrass before it was worn down with years of players and machines flatting the map. The grass also came from when a few players decided to make a weather machine. It worked but it blew up shortly after it was used.
This is my fourth background. I put in some effort into this so I hope at least one person likes this.

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
            • The First Days <-- 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.
