    I have heard a ton of people mention this for water world (though may be something for others). This is actually an easy fix. This error means that the map you currently have is not the same version as the one on the server. This could mean that:

    1.) you downloaded an older version of the map on the workshop separately
    2.) the one downloaded from the server is old.

    To fix this if you match with 1, just simply unsubscribe from it on the workshop. If you did not download it from the workshop and it came directly from Ice-mod, then you need to go to this directory (Windows) :

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod\download\maps. Look for the issue map .bsp. Then delete it.

    The next time you go on IM, the newer version should download when the map is next played.

    Hope this helped some of you!

    This should honestly be put in troubleshooting and stickied, I mean we're a Garry'smod based community and this happens with all gamemodes.

    It is in Troubleshooting, Slimy. I left a temporary redirect in TTT.

    I am here to extend this help guide a bit. I had a similar problem again and found another possible fix. If you go into:

    %YourSteamLocation%\steamapps\commom\garrysmod\garrysmod\downloads\server\


    and delete everything there, it might fix the issue by having the server reinstalling what was in that folder. I also deleted both the .bsp and .ain files from:

    %YourSteamLocation%\steamapps\commom\garrysmod\garrysmod\download\maps\
    %SameLocation%\graphs\


    I don't know if this did anything (as I'm pretty sure deleting the server files was the fix), but i'm not 100% sure so I'm putting it here anyway.

    I don't think this will work if you downloaded maps from the workshop, but I'm not sure of that either. This fix works for all servers. I hope you find this somewhat helpful.
