    This might be fun, but who's judging it? If it's self-judged, what are you going to do to make sure people don't cheat?

    I am judging them, it will be on a server where I can see the trains for myself.

    Spiff.



    Oh yeah, do you not care for realistic functionality, or are you going to mark down for thruster power?

    Well, our good old friend "dupe rape" and "misclick" just shot about 4 hours of work in the face. I sneezed while parenting and ended up parenting half of my contraption (including the mechanism that allows turning) to... the cow catcher. The dupe has the consistency of jell-o, and it can barely round a corner at a little bit less than sprinting spreed, let alone high velocities.

    Here's what it looked like:


    Featuring (lit. Featured):
    -- Alternating smoke stack puffs.
    -- See those things in the middle, behind the smoke? They went up and down. It was cool.
    -- Motherfucking flames, dude. This thing was a hot rod on train tracks.
    -- See those completely pointless looking shiny wheels on the front? That's a fucking generator. This thing can power itself and an entire city.
    -- Room for 5 people, letting 3 of which let their legs hang free!
    -- Brakes (for pussies).

    I went for a unique design, if it wasn't obvious already. Like the 3rd feature says, I wanted this to be a hot rod on train tracks. 'Cept I got boned by the game, and frankly, I don't have the will to recreate it. Sure it was only about 4 hours worth, but that's about the only 4 hours I really sat down and put time into.

    Since we're on the subject of propulsion, my train will be powered by the sheer awesomeness of Bruce Campbell's biceps...

    hey. would it be an idea to have an idea on how close the max speed of the Gmod train is to the actual train in real life? because some locos (eg. American freight locos) cant exceed 70MPH but the Acela Express can reach 150 mph max. how about that?

    lol hey Ben. I don't really get what your asking but snow said that you need to make it go atleast 100 for 4 stars. I have a GP38 which only goes 65 IRL. But he said 'Well gmod isn't limited to realism'.

    Edited:

    Oh yeah. Hey guys. We don't have engine mod on the server. So i dont sugest using it....

    Trolling max needs to learn to be better troll.

    I'm the only one judging this competition, it'll make things much simpler for me.

    Unfortunately due to real life events the morning part of my schedule today will NOT be achievable. I'll be at the server posted in the evening to make up for this.

    Holy hot damn. That one looks nice!

    And I found out I wouldn't have been able to make it anyways, Wolf. Maybe next time! My comp won't start up GMOD.

    Soon as I fix it, though, I'm gonna MAKE time to come join you and show you my trains XD

    lol. Easy fix. Since we all know that Garry Newman is a total dumb!@#. You have to manually dismount Team-Fortress 2. To do so - go to garrysmod/garrysmod/cfg and open content.txt. Replace the text with this...

    "Content"
    {
    "240"
    {
    "mount" "1"
    }
    "420"
    {
    "mount" "1"
    }
    "380"
    {
    "mount" "1"
    }
    "300"
    {
    "mount" "1"
    }
    "340"
    {
    "mount" "1"
    }
    "360"
    {
    "mount" "1"
    }
    "400"
    {
    "mount" "1"
    }
    }


    There ya go. You just manually dismounted TF2. Now GMod will start normally.
