Damn. You need a stand alone mod.

Chicken , I've already gone through them.
The first one is about menus ( A dialog box that comes up , not an in-world entity) and the second one is expanding on more menus.
I'm not entirely sure if they use the same basis. If they do , then I'm pissed , but the code structure looks completely different comparing the files

in VGUI screens - how the hell do you use t Post #273749
I have to say , I've been looking them up , and it is the only thing that pretty much has no documentation on it. For example , there is pretty much no code anywhere saying how you can use buttons , images , etc.
There's pretty much nothing apart from what little there is in the "example" vgui screens. And they don't have any comments or showing how stuff works.

If anyone has any documentation on it , or hints , tips , or saying that it's pointless wasting so much time on it , please say so - I'd really appreciate it.
lolthanks

Reason why: In the end , I want to be able to make a crappy vending machine which can "dispense" 4 items ( Due to the 4 fire outputs). I know how to do everything for it APART from the VGUI screen.

in Anyone good at texturing (Modelling) Post #273538
You may have seen from my journal that I've made a flak cannon.
(from unreal tournament 99)
I'm hoping to make this into a GMOD swep , but I've got one problem.
No textures.
The guy I asked seemed reluctant to do it , and has not spoke to me since.
I've got a guy to rig it for first person ; he's done.
I've also got somebody to code it ; he's almost done.
Just no textures.
It's probably better for you if you can unwrap it and texture it , because then you'd know exactly what goes where.

If somebody could please help or even create the textures , I'd be very happy. Thank-you in advance.

Well , guys , I've stopped mapping , and started doing some other work.
Firstly I've been doing some weapon model concept designing , working on the story and well , Working on a theme.
I really want to hear what you guys think of it.

http://filesmelt.com/Filehosting2/downloader.php?file=themetest2.mp3

Now anyway , I'm now thinking of adding 2 companies into the story. Of course , the Cyclone corporartion , and AMD. Possibly , AMD would send you in because they are essentially the "Hardcorps" of SiN / SiN Emergence.
Of course , Cyclone are going to come after you.

I have a minimum of 3 bossess planned.First one , the "X31-B" which is essentially an NPC boss ( eg. Antlion guard.).
the second and third are going to be logic scripted in valve.
the second one is called the " Excavator". This is mechanically used to seperate ores in mined material , for direct-to-chip processing. Ofcourse , this beast flails sawblades in practically all directions , and you have to shoot 4 weak points , opening the "Control hatch". you then shoot one of the 4 control rods , then the process restarts , but getting harder each time , with yet more shooting sawblades and floor cutters.

The third is the mainframe , and that will be under wraps.

But yet again , anybody with door sound effects or that can do materials , PLEASE CONTACT ME @ hoopdedoo@hotmail.co.uk or STEAM USER pirate_454

or post in this thread :/

@Urb: I like the sounds from HL1 but they are.. well , They wouldn't fit in audio quality wise.
I also searched a bit and split up a pneumatic door closing sound , so I have 1 different door sound.
I also have a sci-fi train passby , which sounds mental.
I'll still look though.

ALSO:
If anybody could make some materials for me , I'd be really happy.
Just a few , transparent button textures , eg. Arrow up , Arrow down , bog-standard button , etc. Holograms.
I suck badly at potatoshop so..

I have a question though.
Does anybody know where I can get some Hi-tech door sounds ( Say the ones that have that hydraulic / pneumatic PHHSSHH thing at the start) for free or for a low cost?

Because HL2 lacks some smooth , hi tech sounds.

Yeah , I agree.
I agree with Jeff's idea of the Terrorists framing you. Combing that with current ideas could work. And I think I will get rid of the RL References.
I only chose Dubai because in my head A scene of this gigantic tower with a blaring sun behind it and alot of eastern buildings in just does it for me.
And I'm still not sure what to do , but I am starting to map for it and am still coming up with Concepts for it.

If it doesn't work out I'll just make it some crappy singleplayer story with no actual words or anything. just a sling of maps.

The AI , I wanted it to be so similar to the Deadly Brain from ONI. As in the lasers spinning around. Crazy shit , there.

Idea for a mod. I am going to make it. Hopefully.

Anyway , so after alot of dreams , Oni and modern studies , I decided to make up this mod.

So , basically , you start off as this random person. We'll call him James now. (Level starts black, hear two people talk , and you can see. You are tied up and in the back of a black van.) Basically , you are a person being charged for suspected terrorism , which you did not commit. Two members of the CIA have given you a deal which they rarely do but undergo due to your connections with the US government. Anyway , you are given the decision to help out the CIA with a terrorist attack or to be shoved into the non-exsistant Guantanamo Bay. You have to agree.

The story is:
Terrorists ( The Hand of God ) take over the Cyclone Corp. building in Dubai. Cyclone is a company which has expertees in Artificial intelligence , Science , robotics and microprocessing technology. The terrorists have tampered with the Building AI called SIAMFMDAAI (Structural integrity and minor feature monitoring device and artificial intelligence) and has activated a device which can bring all buildings fitted with Cyclone Corp. Technology down. You are sent into the building , and take an elevator to the basement where the AI is found. You encounter the terrorists and you escape to the top floor and gradually through puzzles and fights use the stairs to get back to the basement , to fight the AI and end the battle.

Ofcourse , It's going to need alot of maps , sounds and custom models.
But I'm going to start mapping this asap ( And hopefully model )
Comments , suggestions , and recruitment are accepted.

Not to mention that stupid Indian teacher who can't even spell raisin properly ( According to her it's "resinis" )

And don't tell anyone to stay away from there , That site cured my typos and now I'm a grammar nazi.
yay.

And also : Mods go in the gamemode section. If that is considered the wrong section , then go to LUA scripts.

To be honest , Posting a thread on the best GMOD mods in the mapping section is quite... "thoughtless"

Yes. It's me. Big whoop.

Anyway , I've made a map with a ... spawner , Which , Stops working after ten tries. That part is iffy ; It subtracts by one every time the hatch door is opened ( I could use it via the buttons ).

The problem is resetting.
I made a prop , name activator.
And made a trigger in a box.
The trigger_multiple would test the activator on a filter_name with the target activator.
Except It .. doesn't do anything.

Should there be another way to test the activator? It's tested via a "starttouchall" output.

Any help is appreciated.

Does anyone know their email.
If tehy do , I am sending this to them.
Dear Will Wright / Spore designers.

I am getting severly pissed off at the nubmer of the delays of your title , SPORE. Now that I hear it is pushed back to September 2008.
I think you should take this advice :
Produce the PC Version first. Although It has probably undergone alot of beta tests , I am sure it would be ready for release Maysih. You should finish the other ones later.
Take a look at Resident Evil 4.
They first released the Gamecube version , later the PS2 and then the PC.
The good thing was It didn't take long to make since they did everything seperately. I seriously think you should shove all console versions ( BIN THE MOBILE PHONE IDEA. THAT IS JUST STUPID ) in the fridge , and work on the PC Version. Then the Wii and DS , Since they are incredibly similar , and then the PS3 / XBOX 360.
No mobile phones! NO!
Anyone agree?

I've just started to make a roleplay map - Without the preset stuff.
I'm thinkign of making all owners of a shop to have a " Warehouse " card.
The warehouse spawns many things , chairs , tables , combine equipment , signs etc. But I was wondering about spawning Spawners ( say Computer spawners or wepaon spawners) and realised if I have more than 1 , If I press one it will toggle them both.
Is there soem output to make the name of the template's entities + 1 so It doesn't toggle them all.

For example : I press spawner , I get "spawner". Press the spawner again , the buttons and entities change to "spawner1". Again , "spawner2"?
Is this possible or OD I need to explain it more?
