Description: A map that's almost like an extended version of gm_flatgrass! If you like to build on gm_flatgrass, you will like this map even more.
If you don't like simple maps that allow you to build everything yourself, then this is not for you.
You are now thinking: "Wtf, this isn't very original, there are tons of maps like this".
But that's not entierly true, because most flat maps that combines grass and water are pretty crappy, for several reasons: like bad water placement, too deep or too shallow water, unecessarily large filesize, way too advanced geometry, etc.
- Expect a very simple map. It's what any pro builder wants.
- This map when unpacked is only 3mb
- It has a very nice transition between grass and water. it goes from grass, to a sandy beach, to water.
- The size of the grass area is approximately the same as gm_flatgrass
- The size of the water area is about half the size of the grass area, which is still big enough for epic sea battles!
- Depth of the water is deep enough for underwater building, but shallow enough so you don't lose props, or the surface starts glitching. In other words - it's perfect.
This map will be able to replace all use of gm_flatgrass, because this is like an extended version of it that also allows water contraptions.
I know that's pretty bold to say, but it's true. Try the map before telling me I'm wrong.
IMPORTANT:
Do not re-upload this map anywhere.
If you have a friend that cannot download from garrysmod.org, give them this link instead: "dl.dropbox.com/u/50211087/gm_flatbuild_pb.zip" (Map is also available in Toybox!)
If you have any other questions, either post a comment below, or send me an e-mail. You can find my e-mail in the "important.txt" file included in the .zip.

This download looks like an addon. You need to extract the downloaded zip and put the addon folder in your Garry's Mod addons folder. You should end up with a directory structure similar to below:

  • steamapps
    • common
      • garrysmod
        • garrysmod
          • addons
            • garrysmod <-- Addon folder!
              • e.g.
              • lua
              • maps
              • materials
              • models
              • etc

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