    What is the difference between the addon and the gamemode?
    The addon contains the content for the game. The gamemode is the code/server side files needed to play the game.

    We separated them so we could do code patches that don't affect the content.

    Just get both and install them to your garrysmod folder.

    I shat bricks when the elevator actually interacted with the NPC's onboard.

    I want to play it by myself, but I can't get it to work. I get in the elevator, then it stays there and the doors don't open.

    Make sure you're playing the map with the Elevator gamemode set.

    Was a very fun experience playing Elevator: Source with friends. Truly amazed at the amount of
    detail put into developing this gamemode experience, very nice texturing and variety of map themes,
    a nice wide selection of 28 elevators that are randomly selected, different characters entering and
    leaving to their death, some amazing elevator music that leaves me grooving even though a gigantic
    hand just took one of the characters into the depths of hell, I will certainly be awaiting crazy DLC.

    Awesome way to end the round.

    I would recommend creating your own server with a group of friends for the time being, the public server is getting pummeled.

    Starting the game in the Elevator gametype

    GMod doesn't automatically detect what gamemode to start a map on, so here a handy 2 step process to get going.


    1) Select the Elevator map from the other category.
    2) Press the wrench icon


    3) Select 'Elevator' in the default dropdown box under the gamemode category.
    4) Hit Start Singleplayer if you want a solo game, or Start Multiplayer if you want to host a server!

    Hey, fixed some bugs you guys were reporting. Thanks by the way!

    This is only an update for the gamemode code.

    You can get it here: http://www.pixeltailgames.com/elevat...ode/latest.php

    Revision 409
    - Fixed issues causing players to get stuck in the ceiling.
    - Added elev_reset, which allows players to reset their position when they're on the end floor (in case of other issues).
    - Fixed bonematrix Lua error.
    - Added precaching of particle systems. This may solve particle issues people were reporting.

    Stay up to date via http://www.pixeltailgames.com/elevator/.

    I just wanted to say that this is amazing and really great fun to play with a good group of friends.

    I honestly wasn't expecting much when I first looked at it but I was proven entirely wrong. This managed to pack more lasting fun into an elevator ride than a lot of games have in their entirety of not elevator rides.


    It's a really original idea too, there was a great variety in the floors. There were the floors that made me laugh and the floors that absolutely terrified me.


    I look forward to gathering some more friends and playing through it again.


    Great job.

    I see a lot of potential for the community elevators as stated
    by Foohy; they are planning on releasing how to make your own
    floors and maps, thus community elevators, this opens the gate
    to every possibly thought idea to be processed into a floor just
    for us to admire.

    All the different floor styles come into
    place, but how many artists are in a regular Garry's Mod
    community that are really great at making show case maps like
    pixelTail development team? I guess there are those gems out
    there.

    Another thing is, I really want to have over
    one-hundred floors; variety of elevator DLC and map packs that
    goes to the engine limit, but, I don't just want a showcase of
    the artists work(truly amazing), I would love exploration,
    puzzles and all sorts of cooperation needed.

    I see a lot of potential for this gamemode, plus the team's innovation
    makes this an everlasting project that could last hours upon hours of
    content.

    Imagine an exploration floor where the elevator
    breaks down and your objective is to find the repair tools which
    is hidden inside that floor you are stuck on with puzzles to be
    solved to find these repair tools, that is when cooperation with
    some friends or forty players comes into play.

    The only limitation is the Source Engine but I know it's a solvable
    problem: Map change once the server has done every possible
    floor combination to a second map with twenty-eight floors, I
    guess I'm saying more elevator maps to choose from. And maybe
    before every map change, it gives the players the option to
    chillout, for small servers of course.

    I just wrote up instructions on how to install and play Elevator: Source for those who are struggling with it.
