Welcome to Garry's Mod Answers. What would you like to know?

This function can be activated via the Garry's Mod Dedicated Server Console, or the user (that is hosting the server)'s developer console.

User-hosted games Edit

This server type requires the sv_cheats cvar set to 1, rather than the default 0. By default this function is disabled, and can be enabled by gmod Options > Keyboard > Advanced > Enable Developer Console. Open the console by pressing the `/~ key under the esc key. Below is the sv_cheats command that should be executed:

sv_cheats 1

The command that enables the ability to kill other players without changing other user's gamemodes or needing a custom server gamemode is the below command.

sbox_godmode 0

The above command (by default set to 1) enables user invincibility to other users, not NPCs and non-user controlled weapons.

Garry's Mod Dedicated Servers Edit

This server type involves the dedicated server console being opened and executing

sbox_godmode 0

Editing server.cfg Edit

Sometimes neither of the above server types accept this change as regal, and that requires editing the server.cfg file for gmod. Below is an example of a cfg file generated by the gmod-servercfg generator utility with a slight addon made to it.
