Finding and downloading models Edit


First you will need to install either Garry's Mod or Source Film Maker on steam, once either one is fully installed you can enter the workshop by clicking the workshop button, as shown by the yellow highlighted area on the embedded image.

Unpacking Garry's Mod Addons Edit

Garry's Mod workshop files are in .gma format, to unpack them you will need to create a new folder and place a copy of Gmad - Easy Addon Extractor.exe program and gmad.exe from Garry's Mod install folder.

Then you copy over your .gma workshop files to your newly created folder and run Gmad - Easy Addon Extractor.exe. You will now see your addons as unpacked folders containing their models and textures.
