  • Madjawa, do you mind if I make a version of this for my Doctor Who pack? All I'm going to do is add 2 models to the spawnlist. So can I? Tried adding the models to the list myself and none of the options for the stool came up. Any reason why?

  • You don't have to make another version of this to add new models. In your addon, just make a lua file in autorun/ and put this code : [lua]list.Set( "LaserEmitterModels", "path/to/your/model.mdl", { laseremitter_angleoffset = 0 } )[/lua] It should work

  • It's sbox_maxlaseremitters. I think I already said it on this page :rolleye:

  • Okay, great STool, but I have an issue: I made it so it shows up under Construction, but it appears at the bottom rather than being alphabetically categorized along with everything else. Please help.

  • For some reason, having ten of these brings me down to 5 fps. This didn't happen with laser v1.2a.

  • Would it be possible to make a laser absorb another laser? Like pointing a laser (laser 1) at the base of another laser (laser 2) would make laser 2 double damage and width? You could use it for... umm... stuff =D (And, YAY FOR ADV. DUPE SUPPORT :excited: ) [b]Edit:[/b] Hmm... Get an SVN up? :D

  • That sounds like prism towers on Command and Conquer... That'd be pretty cool, but then you'd have people put like 10k damage lasers point at each other and end up having a laser that crashes GMod due to overload of damage. But if you could have a damage cap... That'd be good. Example, have a damage cap of 100, have 10 lasers with 10 damage, all point to one laser and make 100 damage. Then have two 50 damage lasers. You get the idea...

  • Last time I tried to spawn a laser on my server I couldn't delete it so some people decided to try and cover it up. :P. I posted this bug earlier but I don't think you saw it OR it was something wrong with the server.
  • Avatar of Valeour
  • Dumb question but; Did you try the remover stool? Clean up everything? Also, Is your GMod a pirate version? That'd probably explain why if you do.
  • Avatar of steveya
  • Tried both of those. And I'm admin but it still didn't work. I've got the retail version of GMod to otherwise I might be a bit more in hiding.

  • I said that in one of my last posts. Like, it shoots a prop for X amount of seconds, then the laser goes through the prop until the prop moves. So it's like a hole.

  • No free edicts is caused by this addon. I'm 100% sure. How are you checking the max bounce thing? It might be that. [b]Edit:[/b] Cause I was thinking it might check for how many laser bounces it does and then it removes if there's too many. The no free edicts error is caused by having too many entities. So it has to spawn lots of laser entities somehow. Just debug it and see what happens.

  • Hmm.. i would like it if you could look into the "no free edicts" error, it's the only thing stopping me from hosting it on my server. However it might be difficult, as you seem to sound as if you never get it yourself, making finding the problem a bit tricky... but I suppose that's what we are here for =D

  • I set my max bounces to 256 just messing around and I found a bug. The 'damage' laser doesn't get reflected after so many bounces, Yet the visual laser does. The damage beam (invisible) just goes straight through the mirror. The visual beam bounces of the mirror as normal but doesn't do any damage. This is obviously not an urgent bug, It required a LOT of reflections, I'm not sure how many exactly though.
