How to Use Buttons in Gmod


Garry's Mod (GMod) is a sandbox-style computer game that allows players unlimited freedom to create scenarios and simulations. Players can summon items such as weapons, vehicles, explosive barrels, rag dolls and non-player characters (NPCs) to fulfill any of their desires. Buttons in GMod allow any player to activate the mechanism it is attached to. This is helpful when playing on a public server online and you want other players to be able to activate your creation.

  • Create an item that uses a mechanism, such as hydraulics, thrusters or winches. This must be something that uses the numpad for activation.

  • Open the creation menu by pressing "Q" and select the "Button" option under the Construction category.

  • Select the button model you want and set it to the same numpad number as the mechanism from step 1. If you made a hydraulic door and set the hydraulic system to numpad 1, set the button to numpad 1.

  • Place the button down wherever you desire.

  • Stand close to the button and press the "Use key (E)" and it will activate your mechanism.
