  • [QUOTE=Uberpro;28126719]Such awesomeness needs a server! I'd recommend gm_atomic for a server map, rp_apocalyptic is nice but it needs all the episodes which a lot of people don't have EDIT: svn still ain't working for me[/QUOTE] Well I did make a version that only uses hl2 textures, and except for a few ep2 trees which would be pak'd into the map. So if I create an updated version for apocalypse (call it rs_apocalypse or some shit) You guys only want the hl2 shit... And probably add more stuff to the map while I'm at it. It would ruin the look of the mountains and all that jazz, or I could just make custom textures, ehh idk I'll figure it out while I'm working [Editline]mydick[/editline] Scratch the hl2 only version of the map it removes to much stuff

  • I think the map is lovely how it is. My built in prop/spawn placement weapon lets me set up the map as i need it. It's really atmospheric and creepy, well done.

  • After reading about how this Gamemode works, it's nothing like my idea. I can now make something original!

  • Hmm this seems extremely STALKERish and looks like a rather dumbed down SRP

  • [QUOTE=RG4;28140756]Hmm this seems extremely STALKERish and looks like a rather dumbed down SRP[/QUOTE] It is quite stalker-esque, but not SRP. If anything, it's an upgrade version of SRP, with the RP elements removed.

  • So you guys are saying that if I were to set up a server with RadBox, you'd flock to it like so many desperate men to a dating website? Hot damn, I think I'll give it a shot.

Hot damn, I think I'll give it a shot.[/QUOTE] Haha I would. Edit: On a more serious note one thing that I like about this is that it isn't based on RP and solely based on having fun which I like because we already have a ton of post-apocalyptic RPs out there and this is a nice change of pace.

  • Big update on the way. I've added some convars that control a bunch of stuff! Just gonna post them in code form. [lua] NameConVar = CreateClientConVar( "cl_radbox_player_name", "", true, true ) CreateConVar( "sv_radbox_team_dmg", "0", { FCVAR_ARCHIVE, FCVAR_NOTIFY, FCVAR_SERVER_CAN_EXECUTE }, "Controls whether teammates can hurt eachother." ) CreateConVar( "sv_radbox_dmg_scale", "0", { FCVAR_ARCHIVE, FCVAR_NOTIFY, FCVAR_SERVER_CAN_EXECUTE }, "Controls bullet damage scaling." ) CreateConVar( "sv_radbox_allow_loners", "0", { FCVAR_REPLICATED, FCVAR_ARCHIVE, FCVAR_NOTIFY, FCVAR_SERVER_CAN_EXECUTE }, "Controls whether players spawn initially as a loner." ) CreateConVar( "sv_radbox_custom_names", "0", { FCVAR_REPLICATED, FCVAR_ARCHIVE, FCVAR_NOTIFY, FCVAR_SERVER_CAN_EXECUTE }, "Controls whether players can name themselves." )[/lua]

  • [QUOTE=Banana Lord.;28154605]Merz, I can provide a small dev server if you want. Note, it's Linux.[/QUOTE] Nice to see so many people offering me a place to test shit! :v: I have made a big big update. Some shit i added: - RP chat commands. Whisper, local OOC, OOC, and /me. - Added loner faction (can be enabled and disabled, search for sv_radbox in console). - Added RP names (can be enabled and disabled). - Added bullet damage scale convar for RP server admins. - Updated map configs. - Factions now have an arbitrarily picked "leader". Its purely cosmetic, your playermodel just changes. - Fixed possible bug where too many entities are spawned in one frame when the map loads. - Uhh more stuff i forget atm. The only way i can test if my changes are more condusive to roleplay is if a community switches over to this and tries to use it. Like, take a roleplay server that runs rp_downtown or something and is usually full, then swap to this gamemode and see how well people roleplay with it. And then improve where it needs improvements.

  • This has to be the best, customizable gamemode out in the world of gmod. Like other people, I actually a bit more about lua from looking at the gamemode files. My friend and I used to run RadBox along time ago. But radiation storms crashed the server at random. But then I also customized the gamemode, added 2 new quest's (I made a mechanical part hunting quest using the Rouges, but when the arrow pointed to them and you killed them, they didn't drop any parts :( ), added new items and a weapon system where you can purchase a customized weapon, rather than a stock one. This gamemode can't die.
  • If you guys tell me a good map, I should be able to get a server running this. What map is best for Radbox? :psyduck:

  • [QUOTE=.\\Shadow};28162621]If you guys tell me a good map, I should be able to get a server running this. What map is best for Radbox? :psyduck:[/QUOTE] Gm_atomic or rp_apocalypse. Rp_apocalypse does require all the episodes though.
  • To anyone who wants to host a server, replace your clientscripts.txt with this: [url]http://pastebin.com/hU24NVxP[/url] So far I found 3 scripts (jerk.lua, butt.lua and shitbot.lua) allowed on that ("That" being the one included in SVN. I removed them). Doubt anyone wants them allowed. Or if you want to do it yourself, search for those three lua file names with notepad++ on the SVN. If gmod doesn't even use clientscript.txt anymore, rate me dumb and move on. Goodday. :3: Also will probably put the server on gm_atomic.

  • Trying to fix it up, the gamemode is insanely broken - clientside, that is.

  • I remember hosting this when it was new. Was it really a year ago? It feels like much less. Drinking out of bottles should give empty bottles that you can combine with gas to make molotov cocktails. Adding ways to combine things will probably make this slightly more interesting, and getting harder, more rewarding quests from factions the more quests you do. Also, make it more persistent, so you won't have to start over all the time. Adding ambient music based on what's happening a la falloutmod would also be cool. If there's a lot of shooting going on, it'll play stressy music, etc. Another idea would be objectives that factions take over, granting that certain faction a major buff against the others. That way, there'd be a lot more fighting faction vs faction to hold these objectives.
  • Done some temporary fixes to the gamemode - it's in a playable state, server is up here: [url=http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/89.145.94.194:27045/][img]http://cache.www.gametracker.com/server_info/89.145.94.194:27045/b_350_20_692108_381007_FFFFFF_000000.png[/img][/url]
