WARNING: Some of the content on the Steam Workshop may be inappropriate for younger players. I recommend that younger players first get help from an adult before heading onto the Addons menu! After all, the majority of Steam's userbase are mostly older players...

In this section, we will look at the Steam Workshop, a service on Steam which allows users to create, download, rate and share addons for various games on Steam, including Garry's Mod.

An "addon" is a small modification for a video game, which could be a new car, gun, prop, map, etc..
My guide on how to create maps for Garry's Mod explains how to upload addons to the workshop via the game's creator's uploading tool, although every type of Garry's Mod addon (Except maps)
can be uploaded in-game.

First, we return to the main menu. There is a button that says "Addons". Click on it. Now, there should be a massive menu containing a bunch of stuff with lots of pictures and text. These are all addons made by other players! There are many types of addons available, but you should try looking for a good map. Click on "Maps", then click on "Top Rated", if it's not already selected. Search for a map, and if you think it looks good, hover over it, then click "Install". Garry's Mod will then start downloading the addon. Once it's finished, you will be able to try it. If you want to make your own addons, it is EXTREMELY complicated!! I have a tutorial on how to make a map for Garry's Mod here, however you will need another game that is built on the Source engine, and the Source SDK for it. See the next section for the conclusion to this guide!
