    I just played this, thinking it wouldn't run on my PC. It's so awesome! Does anyone know where I can get new levels for sandbox mode? How do you rotate objects?

    Where intellect matters
    You should try some of the other game modes like Gmod Tower, Zombie, Stranded, etc.

    Also you rotate things, iirc, by holding and and moving the mouse (while you're holding it with the physics gun of course).

    New levels? http://garrysmod.org. To rotate an object, while picking up an object with the physgun, hold down the middle mouse button and move the mouse.

    Hmm, I use E and move the mouse around...

    You can scroll through your weapons (or equip new weapons from the Weapons tab in the context menu), and for a vehicle, spawn from the Vehicle tab, enter it and use WASD to move.

    It's a bit confusing to get a hang of the interface, but just fiddle around and you should be able to create /something/. [​IMG]

    An easy project to do is a catapult.

    Put an object like a washing machine then weld it to the ground.
    Make a long stick rotate on the washing machine
    Weld a trash can to the stick
    Move the stick til its about straight up, then freeze it there.
    Attach a rope to it and the ground

    Spawn explosive barrels and have fun.

    Another fun thing to do is a space ship thing.
    Spawn a seat.
    Spawn something for your seat to weld to. This will be your chassis.
    Use the 'weld' tool to stick the seat to the chassis. Line it up first, freeze both things, weld then unfreeze both of them.
    Now, lift up the chassis. Using the hoverball tool, attach 4 hoverballs on the corners.
    For propulsion, use the jets tool. (Set the numpad keys to different ones than the hoverballs!)
    Spawn a turret with the turret tool. Map this to another numpad key.
    Weld the turret to your ship. Done!
