Basebuild is a Garry's mod multiplayer gamemode in which you play as one of the 2 teams which build their bases in order to win the game. The main goals to succes are cooperation, teamplay and your team strategy.

When you choose your team, you start with nothing, only equiped with a crowbar and gravity gun - the most important weapons in this game. With crowbar, you can leave your base and mine some resources needed for your base to expand. You deliver those resources with your gravity gun, some of them are heavier then another, so you may cooperate and mine together.

Once you gathered enough resources, you can then put them into various boxes which when filled, creates a building. Every building has a reason, whether it is a supply house or a protective wall.

Wood, stone and iron are the most important resources.
Iron requires melting before it could be used.
Get wood by hitting trees located everywhere on the map.
Stones can be obtained by mining rocks and iron ore can be mined by hitting rocks located in the mines or outside of your base.

Once you research the "supply house" building, you can unlock classes.
You can play as an assault, with normal speed and some weapons, as heavy, with slow speed and slow mining speed, but equiped with powerful weapons, or as scavenger, having fast speed and fast mining speed, but very few weapons.
The key to succes is a cooperation with all those classes and assigning roles.

This gamemode is better suited for friend parties, but it can be hosted on servers. The maximum recommended player limit is 8-10.

The main goal in this game is to research new buildings, that you can unlock by building others. Eventually, to end the game, you need to build the final tower, which serves no purpose but to win the game for your team. If no one manages to build the tower, the game results in a draw.

You can also put all your effort into building the final tower, which can be destroyed, or to first protect your base and then aiming to win. You can compromise between those playstyles.

Most of the gamemode is done in Hammer, which means that you could create your own based on the entities from mine. I'll be putting the vmf version online soon.
Until that, this only map that exists for this gamemode is quite large, so it could be laggy on slow computers. Consider turning down your settings if you happen to notice some frame drops. I did what I could to optimize the map, but given the number of entities and the map size, the engine simply handles it badly.

The map bs_greenfields that comes with this gamemode should have all custom content packed. It may require episode 2 for some textures however.

As this being something new for the gmod gamemodes, there could be various bugs. Please report any bugs that you encounter, so I can fix it and update the mod.

--To change the time of the round, you need to have sv_cheats enabled, and then you can type "lua_run test( time )", where time is the number of seconds you wanna set your time to. So "lua_run test(1200)" sets the time to 20 minutes.

As pointed out by El_Ricotero, you can use the command "sk_plr_dmg_crowbar" to alter the damage of the crowbar for more balanced or imbalanced game.

Right now I'm focused on fixing the bugs (see comments below) rather than creating new maps. But for such purposes, I have provided the link to the official .vmf of the included map so that it's easy for the community to create new maps, if they want to :)

Hey. Don't know if you're still working on the gamemode but would you mind making a convar for adjusting the round time instead of lua_run?

There is no console command, you unlock the class menu after researching it and only then can you press F4 to open the class menu.
SPAAAAACE Apr 29 @ 7:20am 
what console command can I type in to bind F4 to the class menu?

I think the iron in the mines also respawn only once, that's great, i can imagine it wasn't easy to do. I forgot to mention, the sk_plr_dmg_crowbar comment i made before was intended to refer to changing the amount of hits that the resources take to harvest, because i thought it takes too long, maybe i wasn't clear, sorry. although, that may cause the players to use the crowbar as a weapon but hey, it could help.
