"Garry's Mod" is a popular game that allows players to use the objects and characters from "Half-Life 2" to create their own worlds. The game comes with plenty of models, but players often want to expand their selection by adding other ragdoll models, such as the characters from "Left 4 Dead." Adding ragdoll models requires minimal modding experience, but the models will need to be in a .VTX file format.
