  • My class idea was a bit too much to handle; everyone's schedules made it damn near impossible. I'm offering tutoring for building in gmod. I can teach pretty much anything except advanced expression 2. Thing is, my server cost money, and I usually don't have the spare cash to do so. I'll offer my services for a fee; 5 USD and i'll teach a single subject (IE how to use acf, or how to build suspension, not just a general HOW2GMOD; but I can do that if you're willing to do more subjects. We can do the sessions at any time, and it doesn't have to be done all at once, we'll be done once the client fully understands what he wanted to learn. I may be an impatient ass, but I know when not to be. It's an odd concept, but I feel it's a productive use of my many years of gmod. Here's some examples of my work if you don't know me: [URL="http://s890.photobucket.com/albums/ac109/XanderKarbine/Gmod%202/"]http://s890.photobucket.com/albums/ac109/XanderKarbine/Gmod 2/[/URL] [URL]http://www.youtube.com/Amplar2[/URL] If you are interested, the easiest way to transfer funds would be paypal, or my host's Clanpay system (anything paid to that goes directly to my server). Hit me up on steam, pm me here on fp, or just say so in the thread. Thanks

  • It is possible and even fun to use trial and error as well as tutorials or asking your friends to learn stuff in gmod. Hell, you could even look at videos if contraptions until you figure out how they work, that's what I did. I don't think there's going to be any demand for this when people can learn it for free.

  • there are a lot of things you can't learn by sight; that would be like watching martial arts and thinking you can do it

  • Shall we place our bets on whether or not this will work? I'll put in one wrench that says it wont. If it does work, interdasting. I wish people would just give building a shot before coming to one of us saying omg how do you build like that though.

It doesn't compare to real-time tutoring sure, but vid tuts for fairly complex subjects are certainly possible.

  • i'm not charging 5 bucks to teach a simple thing; i'm teaching whole things such as building tanks for acf, building an entire car, how to build effectively, etc. [editline]11th July 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=Rustep;36705341]will you teach how to acf tank(except for the suspension)? EDIT:I am from Russia[/QUOTE] yes, I can, and suspension is included with that; it's easier than you think

  • Amplar why don't you just have someone host a server for you and teach people for free?
  • Avatar of Amplar
  • I have a server, and not a lot of time. that would be the same of a math tutor, why not host a class and teach for free? i'm not teaching run of the mill shit you can learn off youtube. what I teach will make gmod a lot more fun for those who want to learn it.
