YOU MUST HAVE A WORKING INTERNET CONNECTION AND A CONNECTION TO STEAM FOR THE STUFF IN THIS SECTION!!!! I CANNOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CONNECTION CHARGES OR FEES FROM YOUR ISP INCURRED FROM THE ACTIONS PORTRAYED IN THIS SECTION OF THE GUIDE!!!!

In this section, we will play on a Garry's Mod multiplayer server with other players on the internet!

First, pause the game by pressing the Escape key (Esc). It will pause the game for you, and show you the menu, as seen below:
Click on "Find Multiplayer Game". This will show a list of gamemodes in use by all servers. For now, you should search for, and click on the one that says "Sandbox", with the icon being a wrench. I could not take any screenshots of the multiplayer server screen due to some limitations. I apologize for this. You should then search for a good server that has a low ping, (Higher ping = slower connection to server/high traffic on server) is in your country, is not empty or full, and the map it's on is either gm_construct or gm_flatgrass. If the server has custom content that you don't have, (E.g. Custom map, object, NPC, vehicle, Tool Gun tool, etc.) it will automatically download it for you while connecting to the server. When you have fully connected to the server, you will spawn in the map just like in singleplayer, except there will also be other players playing in it too. While you are there, there is a couple of other things you should know first: pressing the Y key lets you type in a message to send into the server's chat, letting you talk to other players. With some configuration through Steam and a little bit of settings tweaking, you can also use a microphone to chat to other players! Also, you can change the appearance of yourself in multiplayer by opening the Player Model menu by holding down the C key, then clicking Player Model. You can change the looks of your character, their color, and also the physgun's color, too! Changes to your player model take effect when you respawn, by dieing or disconnecting from the server, then reconnecting. Have fun playing with other players! Make sure you don't misbehave on it though. It could get you automatically disconnected from the server, (Known as being "Kicked") or even banned from it! See the next section on how to download addons from the Steam Workshop!
