    Wiremod has it's uses and can be fun to mess around with at times, but I wouldn't like it if thats all gmod turned into. It should be a balance of both building/creating and a little wire contraptions and stuff.

    Team Garry should merge wiremod with gmod with an option to disable it.
    I'd have to disagree. Wiremod is seemingly updated at least twice a day, and I'm pretty sure Garry would only add it during "major" changes.

    I personally think that wire-mod has ruined Gmod. Before it used to be about the building. Now, 3/4 of the contraptions forum is boring wire-mod shit that half of us don't understand and even if you did, is boring as hell.
    Don't get me wrong, I think the people that use wire-mod are smart to understand it, and it is useful for gcombat and the like. I just think people have taken it too far, "Wow, another engine, never seen that before!" I just wish we could go back to the old days where building skill still counted.

    noones is forcing you to use it, and i think press buttons is easy, with wiremod gmod is better, without wiremod gmod is nothing

    You're retarded.

    Wiremod has contributed to the ultimate deterioration of the Garrysmod community, as it has put advanced players in an "adapt or die" situation that many could not overcome. This, coupled with the disastrous conflicts that arose from the GM10 update, saw many leaving the game.

    And your comparison of Wiremod to household computers was stupid.

    You just need to find the right place to go if you actually want to see people using Wire correctly. I mean hell, if I go onto a random server, I see people doing silly stuff like coding an E2 Holo that will have an effect going around them. And that's it. Then there's the servers were people do useful stuff (like GGG (was)) like engines, airplanes, cars, trucks, tanks and all that jazz. Good stuff. Quitting GMod because of Wiremod is pretty silly, you really just need to look around.

    Also maybe we should let this thread die down (for a couple weeks, until someone bumps it again). I mean, this is from 2007 were Wiremod looked quite differently.

    I beg to differ. Wiremod has revolutionized GMod and in a good way. So because people use Wiremod to build things you think it's killing GMod? I hope you know that GMod is not just about making things out of stuff you would find in a junkyard. GMod is about building and creativity, which Wiremod has. Anything you can make with vanilla GMod, you can make with Wire.

    On one hand, you're building with your physgun and toolgun. On the other hand, you're building with code and syntax. Same concept dude, just a different way of doing it. And if you don't like the different way of doing it, you can build using your normal tools.

    This thread has been going for 5 years I think, it's not worth arguing in here anymore. I think we've already come to a conclusion which is "your opinion".

    Before Wiremod, people used their artistic side to build things. Now its programming skills.

    For me, I would have stopped playing gmod ages ago without it. And if e2 never came around I would have never understood how easy the basic concepts of programming were, and I would never gotten into programming and web development.

    So because I use Wiremod and quite a lot of other aids to build this, I'm not using my artistic side?

    That's quite a weird thing to say. Yes, contraptions were a bit more creative before Wiremod, and people who don't use it are probably still rather creative. Thing is, most people realize that the simple thruster car made out of fridges and doors just won't cut it in the end. How would I make an engine powering a vehicle with regular GMod stuff? How would I be able to fine-tune a suspension or even make one properly? It's either impractically hard and wonky or just impossible.

    also holy shit let this die already.

    I think it screwed up Gary's Mod is not destroyed yet, most enjoy it. But most severs that use it learn quickly Wire Mod not made for Gary's Mod Multiplayer as it easily abused.

    And yet most servers still have Wiremod installed years later.

    Yeah, Wiremod opens up a lot of possibilities that weren't possible to begin with. I remember someone saying on this thread, if you don't like it, don't use it, if you do like it, keep on using it.

    I believe WireMod has improved Gmod a lot. I used to get pissed because I didn't know how people made these crazy things but then I slowly made my way up and can make some cool things now. Wiremod gives me a LOT more things to do now like make computers in the game using Z-CPU or Expression 2. It's fun.
    I've seen people on wiremod servers make some crazy shit and didn't know how they did it, but once you learn how to use it good, you can show your stuff off too.

    Wiremod helped people in some ways, I believe. There's a few people that got into programming and such because of E2. So I think wiremod has helped quite a bit of people. It's just wiremod can be used in bad ways too, so it's mostly a person's opinion rather it ruined Garry's Mod or not.

    Wiremod has it's advantages and disadvantages. What Wiremod's objective is is to create a new perspective of creation. There's many new opportunities thanks to Wiremod.

    For one, Wiremod's advantages. Wiremod has opened up many new opportunities to be both constructive and/or an idiot. I for one enjoy wiremod; I like how the controls are made simpler with the Vehicle Control Unit; I can press W to go forward, instead of 8 on the numpad. Wiremod makes complex ideas easy.

    On the down side, I can see where the original poster is coming from. Wiremod has made GMod users think a bit more inside the box, where as before that, they had to think creatively on how they'll set up a trap.

    But remember this, you don't have to use Wiremod. It's not a crime to use GMod without it. Wiremod is a choice, not a requirement.

    radical idea: you can use or not use wiremod


    this is like saying ACE has ruined ArmA

    completely voluntary to use it, point is void of ruining the game

    I like that it's a running 5 year long history of hemming and hewing with respect to Wiremod, and wiremod still exists as an important part of our community.

    It's still here, and still kicking.
