Take Gmod Pictures Without .Jpeg ArtifactsI'm making this a journal since it's not a tutorial for effects or posing or anything like that. It's purely simple and is text only anyway. There wouldn't be much to show.Take Gmod Pictures Without .Jpeg Artifacts by NightB1ader
So you make Gmod pictures, good for you. You want quality, right? But every time you take a picture, it's always in .jpeg format. Even when you raise the quality, you still get that .jpeg junk in your image. I'm sure you'd love to take pictures exactly as you see them in the game. Well there's a very simple solution to that.
(If the developer console is on already, skip this)
First, make sure the console is on. There's two ways of doing this.
1. Open Garry's Mod and go to Options.
Under "Keyboard", click "Advanced..." in the window.
You'll see a checkbox with "Enable developer console". Click that.
Now just hit "OK" on both windows and the console is on.
2. Right click "Garry's Mod" on your Steam
Go to "Properties" and look for "Set Launch Options" under the "General" tab
In the box, type -console, and the co
If you are interested in having a Garry's Mod pony model made for you, please go here. DO NOT ask for a request on the comments below
Failure to follow this instruction will result in your comment being ignored, flagged as spam, and an official warning from the administration.
Before submitting any pictures, please read our Submission rules below, and make sure to also read about our Quality Standards program here.
On July 14 2011, meshes of the characters from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic were rigged to Garry's Mod game and released to everyone, allowing them to create all kinds of pictures featuring those characters in this game. This group is dedicated to collect such pictures for everyone to see.
Equestria Daily's articles about them:
See Wikipedia if you don't know what Garry's Mod is: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Garry%27…
Original ponies' meshes were created by KP-ShadowSquirrel and were rigged to Gmod by oogaboogaman.
It's an encyclopedia containing useful information about all original projects, characters and whatnot made by the members of this group.
If you have any questions, ask Stormbadger, the administrator of the encyclopedia.
First, remain respectful to all members; no bashing, insulting etc., always remain nice.
Second, we accept only art featuring 3D models in Garry's Mod, and only models based on the My Little Pony franchise. Also, while ponies don't have to be the main focus of the image, it's unacceptable if MLP characters are barely noticeable on an image that is focused on something not pony-related.
Third, always follow the instructions of any admin, and remain respectful to the staff. Multiple temporal bans, as well as ban evasion, will result in a permanent and unappealable ban.
Fourth, always submit your deviations to the right folders, as detailed below:
If you wish to submit anything to the Other - Mature folder, please follow these rules!
Any pictures with extreme depictions of gore, fetishes, sex and violence belong to this folder, and must have a mature -tag.
On the other hand, any pictures with low amounts of blood, violence, or suggestive themes don't belong to this folder, and don't require a mature -tag.
Fetish pictures and other suggestive and sexual stuff involving children will be rejected, without exceptions.
Pictures with questionable content (Nazis, etc) do not belong to this folder, and don't require a mature -tag.
Pictures with swearing, insults and profanity in general are accepted, and do not belong to this folder, nor they need a mature -tag.
Racist pictures will be rejected, without exceptions.
Hate and attack pictures towards any characters, OCs or members will not be accepted.
Pictures or animations made in SFM are NOT allowed in this group.
If you have something made in SFM, and you want to share it, do it here instead: or
Only characters from the show universe count when deciding where the picture would go. If the picture contains for example several TF2 characters and only one pony, TF2 characters are ignored and the folder is decided based on the pony. Ponybots and changelings don't count, unless they are personal OC's. The deviation goes into one of the Group folders as detailed below:
For simplicity's sake, all non-pony characters from the show are also considered canon ponies, so submit them to the folders related to canon ponies. Canon ponies with different outfits (for example ponies as TF2 classes) are still considered as canon ponies.
If it's a pony with a dedicated folder, it goes into such folder.
If your deviation features one pony or multiple clones of the same one, it goes into the corresponding folder.
If it's a character (Pony or non-pony) from the show but without a dedicated folder, it goes into the "Single Pony - Other Canon Characters" folder.
If it's a character not present in the show, it goes into the "Single Character - Custom Characters" folder.
If your deviation features multiple ponies (but not just multiple clones of the same one), it goes into one of the Group folders, as detailed below:
If it features only canon characters (present in the show), it goes into the "Group - Only Canon Characters" folder.
If it features only custom ponies (not present in the show), it goes into the "Group - Only Custom Characters" folder.
If it features both canon and custom characters, it goes into "Group - Canon and Custom Characters"
If it features any of the G1 Ponies (see here, includes Surprise, Firefly, Posey, Sparkler and Twilight) or generally any ponies from MLP generations older than Friendship is Magic, then it goes into the "Other - Older Generations" folder.
If it's some specific group (Lyra and Bon Bon, CMC, Wonderbolts) or a character from those groups without other characters, it goes into the respective group's folder (Other - Lyra and Bon-Bon, Other - CMC, Other - Wonderbolts). Babs Seed is also considered as one of the CMC.
Pictures with speech bubbles and/or multiple panels go into Other - Comics. This includes possible cover pictures.
If your deviation is animated, or if it's a link to a video, it goes into the "Other - Animations and Videos" folder.
If it features any anthro-ponies, no matter if they are the main focus or if they are in the background, it goes into "Other - Eppaljeck and Company".
Submit your picture to Miscellaneous if:
It features HWM-style silly faces.
It features anthro-models.
It features any no-MLP models reskinned with MLP motives.
It doesn't features any MLP characters but it shows MLP items.
Is a "filler" picture.
Is just too random to fit anywhere else.
You can always ask the admins if you're uncertain where to upload the deviation or does it fit the group at all.
