Rendering glitch?

A Forum Thread for Garry's Mod

Alright, hear me out. Whenever I look away from a prop or entity, it takes half a second second to load back in if I look back (if I'm even close enough). This may not be a big issue for most people, but I make posters and and some movies with gmod.

Props, entities, etc will comepletely disappear if I walk 10 feet away from it. This was not an issue before. This only started happening after I joined a certain sandbox multiplayer server and then left.

I maxed out all draw distance settings (via Life Mod), I factory reset gmod, went through all of the settings and commands. I validated the files, I went thru all my addons ooking for what was wrong, and I got absolutely nowhere.

It's really getting on my nerves. Is there anything I can do? Any settings or addons to help?

If it helps, the name, the name of the server was this exactly:

{Vanilla & No Downloads} Friendly Garry's Mod Server

    Sounds like the fade distance was turned down. I know there's console commands to change that, but if you ran the factory reset, it might be something more serious.

    Try launching GMod with -noworkshop after resetting it.
