  • I'd like to see a version of this in sandbox, The original hasn't been updated in ages, and I would love to see an addon which makes props into props that can be killed and targeted by warmelons, while only allowing warmelons props to be able to have the melons weled to them. I'd rather see a server of warmelons which anyone could join at any time and not have to worry about resources, and instead just screw around and build mock wars with friends.

  • [QUOTE=Shadow_Hedgehog;18128830]Hey hey hey, it's november the first! Release date, noaw.[/QUOTE] I'm operating on GMT-6 and I still have many hours before the day is over (even more due to daylight savings time! wooo!). I haven't forgotten about release and it's still getting released today. I'm cracking down on a crash bug and finishing up the documentation.

As far as worrying about resources the gamemode has tons of convars. Switch a few settings and there are no resources.

  • gamemode? I thought this was a lua release, if it were a gamemode, wouldn't you put it in the gamemode releases section? Also, it's november the first for you, now. About 1 in the evening or so?
  • Avatar of Lap
  • Because it was an addon and not a gamemode when this was initially released. It'll be in gamemodes when I release it. Thanks for reminding me what day it was as if I didn't know. I didn't say by November 1st. I said it will be released on November 1st so I'm afraid you'll have to wait a few more hours for your free stuff.

  • Oh God I remember seeing this a few months ago, any chance of a fuck-around sandbox singleplayer mode?
  • Avatar of Lap
  • Though it is technically a gamemode you can choose to allow any sandbox tools and screw around singleplayer.

  • So.... Is it gonna be released in the next 20 minutes? Because next to the 10 GB update coming to the SBEP project (Hopefully coming out before 2011), i'm dying to play and have fun with this!

So he is already in the next day and not us so the release is still in for today. Depending on Time Zones.

  • It's 7:41pm in central timezone here and I like cutting things close to the wire. The documentation compiling is taking forever.
  • Avatar of Toggle
  • That's okay... I'm just glad your still working on getting it out there. [editline]08:55PM[/editline] Cutting it close.......... [editline]09:12PM[/editline] So.... uhh...... Hmmmm...... [editline]09:12PM[/editline] How big is the Documentation stuff anyways? ARE YOU EVEN STILL AWAKE!? [editline]09:12PM[/editline] Edit

  • Despite many retards claiming this would never get released or wouldn't get released at the said date....guess what? It's released and on the day I said it would be (Day light savings time + GMT-6 = 50 some minutes to spare. A technical victory). [url]http://www.filefront.com/14841741/WMRTS-a1.zip[/url] Extract everything to the garrysmod/garrysmod folder (you should see addons, gamemodes, etc here). Documentation is mostly nonexistent in this release. The in game help introduction and encyclopedia are present, but not fleshed out. I have a 30+ page pdf manual that is shaping up and I'll release that as well as any hotfixes in the coming days. Main issue I've noticed is that starting a game in singleplayer causes the selector gun to bug out. My testers and I never actually use the singleplayer button even if playing by ourselves so it went unnoticed. Either use the binds instead of the gun or start a multiplayer LAN game (make sure you are using something like ULX or you have manually added yourself as an admin through your users files. [url]http://wiki.garrysmod.com/?title=Admin[/url]). Joining team 0 by saying /join 0 will put you on the admin team where you can do whatever you want. Most rules are automatically disabled in singleplayer though. Server operators should probably wait until the documentation out if you are going to put up a serious server. For those of you who are mostly new at this tell me how it goes using just the in game help and provide feedback on what would have helped you learn things faster. I'll be making a big announcement to the news node, throwing up a new and better thread in the gamemode section and throwing this on moddb in a few days.
