  • Just tested rev 37. This is EPIC. It even saves [ENTITY] wires. Tool menu done ten times better than Adv Duper one. But i found a bug... I just spawned models/props_c17/door01_left.mdl and copied it with "Paste at original origin" option and got this (in server log): Lua Error: [@addons\[tools!] tbs_duplicator\lua\weapons\gmod_tool\stools\tbduplicator.lua:501] bad argument #1 to '?' (Vector expected, got nil) anyways, other problems (some of them was discussed above): * Everything spawning frozen. This is not always good, so there should be an option to paste frozen. (Adv duplicator in this situation just unfreezes props that wasn't frozen after all entities are created) * Everything spawns at original angles (add an option and/or pitch/yaw/roll sliders) * Z doesn't calculated correctly, so, for example, models/props_c17/door01_left.mdl always spawns partially inside a floor

  • Dunno if this happens with anyone else, but tb's duplicator fails to load sometimes. Is this common and/or being worked on?

  • it just stopped even noticing when I select a contraption...basically it pastes nothing but invisible collision hulls and can't save a contraption. Am selecting by nonparented props, doing everything right, etc. dunno if valve broke it with the new update.

  • If this is still being silently developed, I will help test. I'm always enraged when I spawn one of my 4 cylinder engines and the thrusters fly around the map because the welds are broken.

  • If you need dupes I can whip up some complex stuff. Please tell me this is still active. TB, where are you? :(

  • I'm still here. Duplicator is very close to done. Adding lots of new features and I've found a few things that could have hurt perfect duplications over time, but now they should stay perfect. Making lots of optimization changes, trying to remove every bit of lag and making it very server friendly.

I used adv. ball socket to make the front wheel turn like an actual car, but after a couple of duplications, the wheel got weak and couldn't support the body. Hopefully, This can allow me to remake it without this issue.

  • Please, please keep up the good work on this. I cannot describe the rage I feel at duping a ship I spent 4 hours on just to discover everything's been jelly welded.

  • When I spawn something I just built, all the thrusters fall off and a number of other welds apparently don't happen, so the whole thing spazzes out. Console has this to say: [quote] DUPLICATOR: File opened successfully. Set name: [@addons\tbdupe\lua\weapons\gmod_tool\stools\tbduplicator.lua:271] bad argument #1 to 'SetAngles' (Angle expected, got nil) DUPLICATOR: Spawning... Trying to Spawn Resource Node: resource_node No effect data [/quote]

[QUOTE=MadDog986;32202484]Does this tool use the same hooks as Adv Dup?[/QUOTE] Like what hooks?
