Hi, welcome to this post, This Garry’s Mod – Modest Map Manipulator Tutorial Guide was created to help you.

This guide explains how to use Modest Map Manipulator. With this tool, you can edit map entities while playing in any type of gamemode and add new ones. It contains both basic as well advanced topics.

The Interface

The interface is straightforward to use. The best way is to use the console to bind keys.

  1. Use the tilde (2A05418469A key) to open the console. Look under your “ESC” key.
  2. Enter “bind mouse3 +mmm“, sans quotes.

Other keys can be used instead of the “mouse3“.

  • mouse4“, mouse5 – Additional buttons on specific mice.
  • alt” – Your left ALT key. Normally, it’s used to stroll.
  • g“, – your G key. It’s frequently used to spray out images.
  • You can program the buttons on your computer mouse. Use the included computer software to set up one of the buttons as PAGE-UP or PAGE-DOWN, and then bind either “pgup“, pgdn or any other programmable buttons you may have on your mouse.

Once you’ve bound the key you can press the button any time, except when in the main navigation menu. To keep the interface from closing, click the bar on top or bind it to:

  • mmm_cl_toggle


Object permanence

This feature is available in all game modes, unlike many other add-ons. A tool gun or an physgun are not required.

  1. Open the interface of the addon.
  2. Right click the item you want. (such an a prop that you’ve spawned).
  3. Click on “Make Permanent”.
  4. Make any other adjustments you wish (disable collision, set color etc.).
  5. Click “Save”, at the top of the interface.

You can open up the interface to confirm that your changes are permanent. Click on “Commands”, followed by “Cleanup Map”. This will bring up the map’s default settings.

Removing Entities

You may also find something you’d rather not be there. You may find a button that causes your player to be bothered. It could even be clutter that is eating up framerates. You might find something offensive. We can eliminate any entity. Permanently.

You can do this in two ways. The context menu works well, but only on entities that are already on the map. The Entity Whitelist is a second option.

Context menu

  1. Right click on the entity with the interface open.
  2. You’ll notice “Auto-Delete”. Press it.


Entity Blacklist


  1. Click the entity’s name by clicking the right mouse button. Click to copy.
  2. Click on “Commands”, top left, and then “Open Blacklist”.
  3. Copy or type in the name and then click “Add”.
  4. Before your progress is lost, make sure you click “Save”.

The blacklist lets you ensure that anything spawning with a particular character name at any moment will be immediately deleted. This is especially helpful when removing NPCs from HL2.

The Entity Finder

The EntityList allows you edit or remove all entities, even those that are only available on the server. This is also a method to get the names of those entities in order to add them to your blacklist.

  1. Click on the “Commands”, followed by “Open Entity List”.
  2. Click the class of your entity (such at ttt_traitor_button).
  3. Click on each entity and use the “Look at” button until you find it.
  4. Press “AutoRemove” if you’d like to delete it permanently. “KeyValues”, on the other hand, allows you to edit these values.
  5. If it doesn’t, press “Persist”. If not, then press “Persist”.
