How do I change my character in Garry's Mod?

The default character you control is Dr. Kleiner, but is there anyway to change it so that you control Gordon Freeman, or Barney, or Heavy, etc.

Just uninstall the game and save some poor server the trouble of banning you.

I dare say that your comment was quite rude, dear sir! p_o

But my question is just for messing around in single player anyway >_>

Press q, go to the options tab. Player model should be in there somewhere.

I don't think you can do Freeman, and unless someone made TF2 playermodels for Gmod you can't do heavy either.

But that aside, you should be able to do it from within the spawn menu. It's one of the menu tabs off to the right when you're holding Q (default spawn menu button). Won't take effect until you die if I'm not mistaken.

Also, the reason for not being able to use TF2 characters for your player character in Gmod is because they use a different skeletal animation system than most other Source based game characters.

Scarred got ninja'd on a thread about Gmod by an hour and a half.

This is crazy stuff.
