-Step one: Copy the "maps" folder from this ZIP file.
-Step two: Go to the directory "C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\SteamApps\Common\GarrysMod\garrysmod"

-Step three: Paste the "maps" folder into that directory.
-Step four: Go into Garry's Mod and load the map.

I spent the last month or so working on this map time to time. The name is "Eclipse" because I was listening to the song of the same name by Pink Floyd when I got the idea to make this map. The map doesn't have as much content as I wish I could put in it, and I might've gotten overly ambitious with the project.

As some mappers might tell, the file size is quite big for not being that huge of a map. I'm fairly beginner at making maps, and I'd like to further point out that if the map is un-compiled, there's no cubemaps and the brushes are an absolute mess and do not follow the binary scale that Hammer uses to render. If anyone wants to update the map to have good cubemaps and optimization -- be my guest, but I'd also appreciate it if you at least credit me as the designer of the map.

Beyond that, I hope this turns out to be an enjoyable map for a lot of people, and I mostly intended it to be used in TTT, but it can be used for anything, so I decided to label it "gm_eclipse".

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
            • GM_Eclipse <-- 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.
