i dont have the addon or the 2nd garrys mod folder that you are supposed to paste the css maps folder in. how do i fix that?

If your talking about getting all the css maps, you have to have counter strike source. Hope this helped

Do have to have Half Life or counter strike play Garry's mod or can you buy it and play?

No, but you need counter strike source to play on most ttt (Trouble in terrorist town) servers.

I have a couple addons installed already, but I can't access any ragdolls/props/whatever included with the addon. How does one install an addon so that you can get to said ragdolls?

I did all the stuff you said and i know that i have to make an addons folded but i havent a clue where my C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\\garrysmod\garrysmod\addonsn folder is or whaterver it is called!!!
I got the winrar files but idk what to do wit them bekuz i havent a clue where my folder they go in is called
im not talking about the addons folder im saying the whole thing!
You've gotta kidding me! WinRar is an outdated program that is not worth your time. Use 7zip instead.

7zip sucks... WinRAR is such a better program.
