The Better Gimkit Creative Tutorial

Hello GimCreators.

Today I present a guide to you that is a better version of the default gimkit creative tutorial.
So here we go.

What is Gimkit Creative

Gimkit Creative is a way that YOU the community can make your own maps inside of Gimkit. You can then share these maps with your friends via showcase links, or even publish them on gimkit.

The Add button

You'll Find this button located in the top right corner or you can press e

Terrain is well. Terrain is the floors & walls of your map there are so many to choose from that you can make so many cool designs with them. Experiment around with terrains and other stuff like that. You can also assign layers to terrain but will get on that here in a second.


Here’s the big button devices are how you add mechanics into your gimkit creative game Ill link the ultimate guides to every device guides these will give you a basis on every device in the game


These are things like boats and tables and the other stuff you may see in gimkit 2D modes these are 3Dish props to add into your game in these props you can customize there shadows, collision, and more. There are hundreds of props to choose from so go crazy.


There are 2 types of ways you can connect 2 devices together the first option is wires which this button opens the wire configuration for you or you can press z, but anyhow to use these connect 2 devices together and select the options you want. The other option is channels which are in each device’s settings. Some devices will have an option like Run Wire Pulse Block will touch on that here in a moment.

So yeah that’s basically it for the add button lets move onto the next button.

The Eraser Button

You'll Find this button located in the top left it's the button that looks like an eraser, or you can press q there's an eraser mode button below I have all the options for those.

This allows you to erase anything and everything in your gimkit game.


This one will allow you to erase only the terrain we talked about earlier this is good for if you have devices or wires in the way. You can also change the size of it when selecting the terrain option. As well as select the layer of terrain you want to delete.

Props & Devices

This allows you to only erase the Props and Devices inside of your game.


This allows you to only erase the wires inside of your game.

The Layers Button

The layers button is very unique as it allows you to layer your devices and props. There are 3 layers Above, Primary, and Below


This layer is above players which means that if a player walks into it with a collision off on the prop they will go beneath it. This is useful for creating objects that players can hide under.


This one will go Above or Below the player depending on their position. This is the default one for most interactive devices like buttons, triggers, and more.


This layer is below the player which means that if a player walks into it with a collision off on the prop they will be above it. This is useful for creating objects that you want player to not be able to go under it and hide.

The Settings Button

This button will allow you manage settings on your game that are useful to gimkit

I really appreciate the time and effort you put into this. The result is a very good guide for beginners. Also how long did it take you to write all that!?

I did I think is it not there

Oh oof. I looked specifically to see if you had that there, and it turns out I didn’t look close enough…

You’re fine, I always appreciate feedback. Let me know if you have anymore.

Did you add holding H and V for horizontal and vertical movement lock?

Really good guide, @Brayden_Shelton!

You might want to add concepts to prepare new gims to make complex maps. But then it might turn into a copy of other guides…

No but I will now thanks

Thats what I feared I figured that this guide would be like a basic tutorial and they can go look up things on here for more information on specific concepts.

Nice guide! You might want to add some pictures for new users

True but I didn’t want to make it 2 cluttered.

this is not in any way better (and if anything, worse) than this guide:

and please, please, please fix your grammar, AHHHHHHHHH


But mine is more centered for beginners. Also as for my grammer what do you suggest I think my grammer is fine
