[Current status of personal Gmod Game: Green [No crashes, playable @40-90 FPS]

This is a list of potentially unidentified/identified bugs and glitches one may find in Gmod [not entirely linked to the Monolith Servers]. Solutions and workarounds that are found are temporary until better ones are found. All fixes/solutions have been made on a Gmod game with regular structure and no modifications other then the Monolith content pack. Fixes/workarounds are NOT guaranteed to work on your system. Bugs/glitches and the corresponding fixes/workarounds have been made on a brand new Samsung 860 EVO 1TB SSD with nothing other then Steam and a few games. If my list is found to work, please comment what has worked and the side effects of the fix (what other things have gotten better/worse). Any bugs/glitches found can be posted in the comments section and I will attempt to simulate the bug/glitch in a test version of the game (separate game file).

-- Crashes and severe problems --

1- When you crash randomly every 10-30 minutes and you get no error code then a good solution is to set Gmod to the 64 bit beta via Steam. This has helped many people and has been found to even give better fps and less graphical glitches.

2- You have no textures and everything looks like it's been stolen and replaced with pink and errors. Your Gmod addon files are corrupted and need to be entirely erased. Simply unsubscribe from them and remove them from your addon folder. After doing so you may come across an issue I call "Steam Is a Terrible Program". This is when the addons insist that they are installed, and keep not installing while saying they are. The reason for this is because Steam is utter dog doo doo and should be erased. Now, to fix this issue you must uninstall Gmod (not subscribed to anything) and then uninstall Steam (make sure to copy ALL of your games other then Gmod to another folder entirely so you don't reinstall them). After doing so this should make Steam think that Gmod has no addons, and therefore should stop being one of the dumbest ever creations. After doing so, reinstall Gmod and hop on Monolith, letting Monolith install it's mods so you don't have Steam think that Gmod is missing them again. After hopping on Monolith and loading in, just exit the game and subscribe to your addons.

3- This consults conflicts. Due to conflicts being entirely player-based I can't suggest much. First of all, disable/uninstall all of your addons and play Gmod to make sure it is a conflict and not the game/FLIPPING Steam. If it is a conflict then I (rather then doing the enable/disable test that takes hours) would rather you send me the crash report and the console spam in the comments so I can review it and see what is conflicting and add a confliction list to this guide. Once I review the conflicts you are having then I will dm you what addons are conflicting and tell you what to get rid of.

4- Others. If none of this works, dm me. I will help you out!

-- Graphical stuff --

1- A couple errors. If you have a few errors then make sure you have the required addons, if you do, then make sure you have the required games (CC:S, HL:2, TF:2 etc). If you have a few errors (just a few here and there) on Monolith's map then get C:SS.

2- If some cars seem like they are the very spawn of Satan himself due to being utter messes of spikes and textures then set your model detail to high.

3- If you run a 64 bit system then set Gmod to use the 64 bit beta. This will sometimes fix graphical messes and stuff.

-- Loops --

1- The Monolith Initializing Loop. Wait, just wait. Give it awhile. Consult me via dm or consult the forums if waiting isn't working.

2- Other loops. Dm me if you have other loops.

-- Other --

Dm me if your problem doesn't sit in any of the aforementioned lists.

By the way, you may have noticed I didn't put money-making/jobs in there even though it is highly requested, but rest assured I am putting money-making and jobs together!
