Long time without posting any of my contraptions. So here I'm fixing that.
KTO Ryś "Kobuz" - with a remotly controled 20mm HMG.
Still need to adjust ACF engine and gearbox to work properly (as of right now it's 33 km/h fast, and it can't climb nearly at any elevation angle)
gm_mobenix_v3_final.bsp <- writen in comments.
Mobenix is crap. I want to know what the first map is. It looks wonderful!
Looks like the giant desert map from empires mod. I loved that, especially combat around the dam.
it's the map i converted from empires to gmod. gm_emp_mvalley.
A new plane I started approximately 3 hours ago. The chassis is ready, but I need to figure out how to balance it and where to add the thrusters. This is also going to be thruster-only.
Cockpit view, thanks for FuDy in the first page of this thread, got some inspiration from that one. ;) (Don't ask why the C-4 is there.)
why the FUCK does it do this?
the wheels all spin correctly but the wheels flop like that for some reason, all of them, I thought it was the weights at first, but I fixed the weights... then it decided to still fuck with me... the fuck is going on?
Anyone have good tips for parented vehicles by the way? It seems that vehicles using many props cause quite a bit of lag, yet parenting them seems to completely disable any possibility for wheels, since parented wheels bounce like mad when the hit the ground even slightly.
How do you people do it?
Karbines Multi-Parent Tutorial
Oh yeah, thanks a lot. :)
try adv ballsocketing the wheels on each axle together too. Like, so that they spin freely of each other, but if one twists one way the other will keep it in place.
Also, hopping is fixed using a tool called makespherical, or very light wheels or an RPM limiter (but that kills your speed)

Youtube memes? In my FP?
Really, youtube does have some seriously retarded memes. Every third comment is "dear santa", "I'm X and I find that Y", or "X people Y". Like, the site's been up for half a decade, and that's all they came up with? Shit, even I get sick of it. Between that and those "youtube poops" and the "hurr fuck america fuck israel 9/11 is an inside job evil jews vote for ron paul yay china" shit, it makes me wonder: can people really be that dumb?
Also, nice cockpit up there.
Anyone knows why this keeps happening? The problem can be reduced a bit by increasing the weight of the wheels, but they will still go half underground after hard bouncing against the ground. The parented props are nowhere near the wheels either.
The black PHX wheels that are in many sizes don't sink through the ground at high RPM's. You sure you're using those?
Most of these older PHX wheels sink into ground because their physbox is so high-poly that the source engine can't keep up calculationg the collisions and ignores them.
This is my first time posting in a wip thread but all of these are wip.

I hate to say this, but there are kind of.. horrible.
Bunch of planes. Challenging myself to build things I suck at building. They all use E2, not fin, because using E2 and making realistic flight might be harder but means they can be used on servers without fin.
Bathtub cockpit cuz i'm lazy.
The stick on the left moves according to control inputs, the bar on a stick thing is linked to throttle and pulls out.
Some shitty transport that was inspired by an equally-shitty looking STOL prototype.
and just for lulz, my noobplane, complete with repetitive thruster sound.
just as warning, sestze's on the warpath and something is conflicting with AD2 on GGG. he's going to remove it. something is causing AD2 to cause server instability.
this problem is only so exacerbated on GGG, too.
(he thinks AD1 is perfect and works fine)
Oh lordy. And so begins the fall of the last proper build server.
also ggg has always been unstable as far as I can remember. Then again all gmod servers are. As amplar's pointed out in other threads, and as I fondly remember, there was a time when 100+ welded prop contraptions actually were feasible. The engine's getting worse and worse.
If we had the 2006 engine and 2011 building methods we could have full-server wars and probably 1000+ prop servers.
I asked TB if he knew anything about these bugs, didn't talk to him very long though. While if I were Sestze I'd be equally frustrated, I think he'll really be shooting himself in the foot with this one in terms of community. On another related note, Waxx is running a server now. My current damage control plan is to differ all my complex building (Swashplates, etc) to Waxx's server and use GGG for combat and mechanically simple building like tanks and simple planes.
The answer to 99% of questions regarding addons, server administration, and engine features in gmod: Don't fuck with it.
If your employer started giving you great health benefits on top of your current wages, you'd be pretty happy. if, after a few months, he randomly took it away because it was causing instability, you'd be pretty pissed.
Take that into GMod; People have learned to use AD2, and have grown accustomed to it. Hell, I know that I can't play on servers without it anymore, because my building habits have evolved over it. it's part of the building infrastructure, and removing it will prevent many people from being able to build at the same caliber they did beforehand.
It'd be like suddenly removing SmartSnap. There was a time when build servers didn't have SmartSnap at all, and nobody complained about it since it didn't exist, but if we took it away randomly like that, I promise you there wouldn't be all too many people who'd want to build anymore. This wasn't the best example, since PA has nearly replaced the need for SmartSnap, but you get the idea. The community has grown accustomed to AD2, and have grown around it and integrated it into their building practices. To take it away is taking away the building technique progression that evolved from it.
