"GMod," or "Garry's Mod," is an online sandbox-style computer game that uses the Half-life source engine. This allows players to create endless scenarios with Half-life characters, items and weapons. The keypad in GMod allows players to network a contraption to a button or switch that can turn on or power that contraption. To use the keypad simply open your creation menu and select buttons from the tool category and set that button, as well as your contraption, to a keypad number.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Load GMod and open the creation menu by pressing "Q". Select an object or device from the Props category and attach a device to it that requires power, such as thrusters, hydraulics or winches, which are found in the tools menu. When you pick the device, select a keypad number to map the power device to using the on-screen keypad in the device set-up.

  2. 2

    Open the creation menu and scroll down through the tool categories to find the button selections. Choose a button and select to wire it to the same keypad number as your device, then place it somewhere near your device.

  3. 3

    Press the button in the game to use the device you created.
