    L4D engine: I don't want funny movie-like pixels when I'm playing gmod.
    Crytek engine: I'd like to still be able to play gmod.
    You do realise Film Grain is an opton in L4D because it's supposed to be like a B Rated Horror Movie

    The only thing that was missing in GMOD...

    You can choose which form of blood you want to paint while using the Paint tool.

    Seriously this will be helpful to a lot of Posers like me.

    I'd want the update to make the game a little bit more stable, fix those annoying Lua Viruses, make the weld tool actually weld rather than have stuff flop about, maybe have a seperate tool for the floppy mode. I agree with Jaycob that the wheels should be able to turn and also have a way to change the weight of a prop.

    One thing I would like is the ability for users to add their own content like animations and rigs/skeletons with their models. Seems odd that it is specifically limited that all the models have to conform to HL2 skeletons. If that were implemented we could probably have tons more player models. Idea coming from Unreal Tournament having worked with it some.

    Course not sure if this would be possible. Not an expert on how game engines work or why or why not those options are chosen to be "left out"

    I'D MAKE IT LOAD FREAKING FASTER! IT TAKES WAY TOO LONG!

    Also I'd like better error handling, so that my game doens't suddenly crash, and then I'd have to start it over again...yuck :(

    Someone made an addon for this a while back. I don't know if it still works or not though.

    You just need to clean up your addons. You probably have thousands and don't ever use them.

    Models don't need to use the HL2 skeleton. That is just a rumor that has gotten out-of-hand.
    The model only needs to have the same activity names and several attachment points.

    Edited:

    I'd add some hooks that allow mods to load content from other GCFs without conflicting filenames overriding them.

    Get rid of errors! Fair enough people don't have certain props installed, but they should still be able to see what the prop looks like and just not be able to spawn it until they do get the packs, because I always make things people can't see :( I can't spice things up with prop packs that aren't really popular because no one would have it, so yeah. No errors would be win.

    they can't see them because they don't have them. if they don't have the model/material/etc. the game doesn't know what it looks like. If your hosting the server, make them download the stuff, if not, there isn't much you can do.

    If the server made someone joining download the models/materials of every person on the server, think how long it would take! (not mentioning the server crashes that would occur to be overloads).

    tl;dr

    if they don't have the prop, there is no way for them to see it without downloading it (and then they would have the prop).



    ruskiarmy; as for text going invisible, that means you either have corrupt files, a mess up addon, or a lua-virus.

    1. Better addon support.
    2. Background music that changes with gamemode.
    3. Built-in weight tool.
    4. If someone doesn't have a prop, don't show an ERROR. Instead, show nothing at all. Similarly, replace the pink/black error texture with gray.

    I'd really like him to remove the limits on map size- It would seriously be way more awesome if we could have like flatgrass double size. It would be way better for jets too, or spacebuild maps.

    He can't, that is a limit of Source, besides, flatgrass isn't even a damn quarter of the limits (on all axis)

    The thing with these error props is if the error prop is huge and you walk into it, you're stopped before you actually touch the error because it is so big, this shows that the game clearly knows the shape of this error because you can run into it. Why can't it just show a outline or the no texture texture?

    I don't think it knows the actual shape, cause that's what the model is for. I think is just the Collision model.

    Downgrade to the half life 2 engine because since the orange box update, all went to hell. Phys_house/temple lags like hell on gmod now, it lags to pieces, and now it's getting worse. :munch:

    I would at the very least change the color of the annoying purple and black checkered missing texture thing. It's obnoxious to look at, especially when a map is completely covered in it. Change it to a more solid color, or colors that don't so greatly contradict one another.

    I would also fix the fact that fire burns under water. Many of the very basic laws of physics don't seem to apply within Garry's Mod.

    I would add 100% working versions of both WireMod and the latest version of PHX into Garry's Mod. I find it increasingly annoying when a bunch of the PHX props show up as ERRORS after I downloaded the whole damn pack. Especially annoying in multiplayer servers when many of the PHX props I can't see because for some reason they didn't come in the pack.

    I would also try to fix many of the game related errors and random crashes (and not any graphical related errors because that's the computer owner's own fault).

    A lot of stuff talked about in here like better welding and physics related shit is all havok-based and garry probably wouldn't be able to muck with that without making it worse or at all.

    Havok just isn't that great for realistic physics but I don't know that there's too much out that's moderately better.

    Guys.

    The pink-and-black notex is pink-and-black for a reason: IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE OBNOXIOUS. IF IT WASN'T OBNOXIOUS, MAP MAKERS WOULDN'T KNOW A TEXTURE SCREWED UP.

    Anyway.

    I'd remove CS:S support from GMod for a few months, so the damn game doesn't revolve around it.

    The fire bug is in all source games, due to the Fact that Valve didn't make Half Life 2's or CS:S's levels to have fire and swimming elements

    No, you wouldn't have to restart, have you ever alt-tabbed out of GMod just to download a mod? But you would have to re-connect to a server if you were on it.

    Garry's Mod is absolutely amazing, and I would be happy if nothing was ever added, but a few of the things that have changed just annoy me. For some reason I can't see over the dashboard of the car anymore. I can't pick things up, which messes with the scripting of the original levels of the game. (Sometimes I like to just play through the original game with GMod.) But most importantly, I cannot stand the fact that I have superhuman running ability.
    Yes, I know that people will start flaming me for suggesting these things, but these are the only things about GMod that bug me at all. And hey.. You asked.

    For GMod, add an option to disable dynamic flashlights.(I have a custum flashlight that lights the entire room, not just part of it, but it creates stupid dynamic shadows). And make it so that the camera's secondary fire, if double-tapped, records a .AVI or other video file that Windows Media Player can read.

    And for Facepunch, I would bring back Instaban, and make it so that if a single post had the words "revert", "back", and "HL2"/"EP1" it would ban the user for a month. So that the whiners will stop whining that they're broke/have a shit PC/etc.

    A masterserver which supports the Gmod mass.

    Also to have this mass server connected to Facepunch so that whoever is banned from Gmod is banned from Facepunch

    Lower the lag in gmod also make realistic water physics that could be manipulated and can be picked up and go in other objects like buckets ect. and could have waves and you could change wave hieght and power ect.
