How did you get into Garry's Mod RP?

June 5 years ago was the first time I created a steam account, and also the first time I had ever played Garry's Mod, which I had bought as a bundle with CS: Source. When I first got into gmod, I really had no interest in the community servers. Most of the time I would play singleplayer and just build away with some popular 2013 timeframe music playing on my computer. After a while, I stumbled across DarkRP, which brings back a lot of memories. I do remember my tireless efforts of getting staff back around that time, all summer really, but it never actually happened as server after server shut down. I really just got attached to DarkRP I guess? It's hard to explain but after my first couple of servers that I played, I really got interested in garry's mod and decided to play a lot more of the community server side, which almost 5 years later, has led me here to Gaminglight

 

So, Whats your story? How did you get into gmod/how did you become interested in the RP style gamemodes?

Is it bad that I just downloaded it cuz my friend gifted it to me on steam, and then I enjoyed the game so I kept playing. Similar to you Snar I used to just build in the sandbox, but then I hit multiplayer and I enjoyed that jailbreak gamemode that has died out and most servers that I played have shut down. 

So then I checked out dark RP and one day confused police RP for dark RP and found Gaminglight.

I made my steam account 5 years ago. The first game I ever played was Terraria. Then after not playing in a while, I forgot my password and 5 days and 3 years ago, I made my steam account I use to this day. The first game I played was Unturned, and then I started to play many other indie games with my friends and I loved them so much. Eventually I started to play Counter Strike after watching my favorite youtubers playing it. I got into watching the majors and then my friend told me about Garrys Mod, and I fell in love at first sight. See, Minecraft used to be one of my favorite games and to see another building game was awesome.  I loved playing Sandbox and I was an admin on a certain multiplayer sandbox server. Then my friend @nowhere man told me about Roleplaying servers, and said i should try out DarkRP and then Gaminglight PoliceRP. I tried it out, and thats when i got into RP servers! (January 2018)

I first got gmod about 4 years ago to mess around on with my friends (will be about 5 years next month). I didn't play it much atal for about a year and then I got into a game mode called Jailbreak. I played there and Kitty also played there as the username Kitten. After about a year playing there, I started getting into SWRP and got my first staff rank on a very popular SWRP server. I got up to the highest non management position possible but then later left as I discovered GL PRP where I got up to sergeant major. After that I dedicated a lot of my time in PRP and now here I am, as the Deputy Chief. When I first started activley playing PRP, Kitty was there as well. We didn't even know we were on the same Jailbreak server until a couple months after activley playing.

 

My story pretty much

I used to and still do love to GMOD youtube videos, and years of watching made me so badly want to have the game, and I had finally gotten it and played in a community for almost 2 years, then I went towards other gamemods and such, and finally tried out PoliceRP, and here I am now.

@Tim Brown told me about a game mode called Prop Hunt, and while at work I decided to check it out and join it. At first I was super Mingy and that’s when I accumulated my 12 warns that I have today, but then I started to go up in the department and I started taking this sever seriously. I joined Low command in Police and now I am a Major in the department. I was Staff on this server for a total of about 5 months. That’s my story!

I created a steam account and then I got gta4 as my first game, I watched a lot of the RCMP clan for gta4 and i stumbled across someone playing gmod and they were on a police rp server. 

so I got gmod and I searched for a police rp server witch was called tknation which was a rp server back in 2016 but is now abandon. when the community faded away I hoped around some servers, then I found gaminglight and I joined it, the people on the server was so nice so I stuck around and here I am in 2018.

Around 4 or 5 years ago on my mac book, I used to always play league of legends and Warcraft 3 Frozen throne custom games. Then one day my friend that used to live down the street from me finally convinced me to waste my money on CSGO i spent like a year or so playing it got bored and figured i wasnt going to spend any more time actually trying to get better so i did what anyone else would and bought an aimware hack and got like 10 csgo accounts vac banned. Then after i ran out of money I realised that i had actually bought a bundle of csgo and gmod so i tried gmod out with my friend. We went on TTT and mass rdmed for awhile and then darkrp which we actually had a lot of fun on, but the admins were really aids. Then my other friend begged me to play on GL milrp and i did and really enjoyed it. Thats pretty much how i found the community i stayed on milrp for like 6 months then stuck to prp. And now im a 6'7 250lbs full muscle, i bench 325, and spend the rest of my day serious roleplaying on the best police rp server there is:GAMINGLIGHT

I bought Garry's Mod when it became Garry's Mod 13. Ever since I haven't even gotten bored of the game. First time I played, I stumbled upon any servers I could find that are interesting. I saw a DarkRP gamemode and I gave it a try. Up to this day, I am still interested in Garry's Mod roleplay. After a DarkRP server that I used to love shut down, I went and found Gaminglight PoliceRP. Gaminglight is probably the most organized Garry's Mod community I've known, the staff is nice, the players, etc.
