When I started making GMod 13 I tried to work out what about GMod 12 was special. What made people want to keep playing?
I realised that it was the crashes. If they were half way through making something and the game crashed – they got to start making it again. If they were playing a gamemode and they were losing – they could reset their score by crashing. That’s why people install so many addons, so many models, so many modules.. they want their game to crash as regularly as possible!
So, no, the crashes in GMod 13 aren’t a bug, I’m giving people what they want.
