  • The mod has no dependencies at all. I'll gladly send you the zip if you email me so I can reply with an attachment (or does fp allow PM attachments?). Going to remove the 8-slot from the OP so it doesn't continue getting flooded with players, though it has been helpful in finding several huge bugs. I'll replace it with an invitation for anyone with a large server to host for me.

  • I've set up a server. Vanilla sandbox, etc - so just waiting for the addon really. [QUOTE=SuperLlama;29633241]The mod has no dependencies at all.

Just upload the zip to a file sharing site (or your own webhost, if you have one) and link to it - much easier. Alternatively, I'll pm you my email and you can send me it attached, if that's what you want to do.

  • Correct, and thanks for disguising the at/dots. Spambots are evil. I would upload it somewhere but I find it easier to keep track of all the people using it if I just send emails. I have no problem with forwarding it, but anyone you send it to will be your responsibility to satisfy as far as explanations, bug reports, etc.. same with server hosting, if a server user reports a bug to you, it's your job to report it to me. Tomorrow when it's released though, anyone can just post in the topic.
  • If this creates a room outside the map, does that mean that if you make a submarine, the submarine won't fill up with water?
  • Avatar of SuperLlama
  • Correct, submarines do not fill with water, however it still renders the water effect inside them and there is no fix for this. The water physics are not present, though, and wire water detectors will not report being underwater.

Because the overlay can be overridden and probably the floating particles too.

  • [QUOTE=DainBramageStudios;29634429]How far does the gravity extend from a prop?[/QUOTE] Look at the second video. From what I can see, the gravity extends across the entirety of the objects welded to whatever the designator was set on, if the giant spinning cube is any indication.

  • I have no clue, the whole camera thing seems to be an addon conflict since there is no possible shortcoming in my calcview hooks.

  • Mother of God, its finally done. After a year of following the allmost dead thread on wiremod.com, it is finaly done.

  • Indeed, I picked may 6th 2011 as a release date due to may 6th 2010 being the day I first posted the attempting the impossible original post, so it will have been exactly a year from start to finish. *gaben voice* Hopefully, it was worth the wait.

  • The server was a shambles but it finally got prop protection and now it's all good.

And it got Evolve, so now more people can ban than the few who had Rcon.
