To add a map to Garry's Mod, it is necessary to subscribe to it first under Steam - Garry's Mod - Workshop.

  1. Navigate to Garry's Mod in your Steam library. Then click on Workshop there.
  2. Under the title screen are the categories "Home", "Browse", "Discussions" and "About".
  3. Click there on "Browse" and on Collections.
  4. Now there is a button on the right side with "Create Collections". Click on it.
  5. Create the collection according to Steam's instructions. (The more unique and individual the name of the collection is the easier it is to find it later).

When the collection is finished by "Save and close", in the next window on "Select the objects for your collection". There then on the tab "Subscribed objects" and add your subscribed mod with the + sign on the left to the collection.
At the bottom right click on "save and continue".
