  • I personally think that wire-mod has ruined Gmod. Before it used to be about the building. Now, 3/4 of the contraptions forum is boring wire-mod shit that half of us don't understand and even if you did, is boring as hell. Don't get me wrong, I think the people that use wire-mod are smart to understand it, and it is useful for gcombat and the like. I just think people have taken it too far, "Wow, another engine, never seen that before!" I just wish we could go back to the old days where building skill still counted. /rant

  • I personally think wiremod has improved the construction. I do agree, if there are too many engines that look and operate like other, it's shit. But if it is a car, for example, with wiremod gears and hydraulics or something like that, it's just good. And you'll learn other things than just construction too :P

The draw I see to wiremod is that in itself is a puzzle. It's an alternate way to do something, and with it you can challenge your skills at logic and the likes. Should see the project I'm working on, fully automating the supply system across worlds on a space build map where each world shares resources and can call in for more from it's neighbors if needed. That's not something you can do with just the number pad.

  • I do appreciate the uses for it, what I'm trying to say is that, like you're doing, it should be built into a well made contraption to allow it to work. The things I hate are all the wire-mod things that serve no purpose, like standalone engines or in game assembly code. What's the point?

  • The only thing that does or ever did ruin Gmod's online counterpart is the community with a collective intelligence of that of a turd with a hat on it.

  • It was far more fun to just build things before wiremod appeared, most people have forgotten this in their quest for more featurezz.

  • Wiremod enhanced gmod and added more depth. No more ent_fire hacking like I did in gmod9 :) But indeed, it destroyed the creativity of most players and it isn't easy to understand.

  • I just can't get my head around wiremod. I miss the days when all you needed to make a car fight was 4 wheels,a box and 4 thrusters.

  • Wiremod is just an addon and can't ruin Gmod. Wiremod is really complex and i don't think its worth getting to know.

  • Wiremod is great big addon. It adds depth to your contraptions, but I can agree that it is annoying seeing every single contraption being automatic engine, computer in a computer etc. I liked it when people could make stuff out of crap, and then show it to the world. Not all this ultra realistic stuff, as much as it looks real, as much as it still looks really good, you cannot shoot down every new contraption that is not like a real life counter part in every way.

  • That's exactly what happened. On garrysmod.org, Half of the saved games/adv duplicates has wiremodded shit in them. Not half, 3/4. Most of it are boring engines that makes a wheel spin or something. Oh god. I hope it just dies because of popularity loss. :3:

On an unrelated note, people really need to calm down and shut the fuck up. They had this old saying we've all seem to have forgotten... [code]Wiremod doesn't kill people. People kill people.[/code]

  • [QUOTE=Caps lock]Nobody is forcing you to use Wire Mod..[/QUOTE] It's not the fact that I dislike using wire-mod, it's the fact that every one else seems to orgasm over it when it just makes the game more boring. Yes, it makes the game more complex an life like, but is that necessarily a good thing?

Keep it to the wire-mod forum.

  • Just because you're to lazy/stupid to learn it, doesn't mean other people can't post their contraptions using it, sure they are repetitive sometimes, but the same thing would happen if there were no wires, if you don't like wiremod contraptions just don't look at those threads...

  • It's impossible not to look at it, I would have to avoid the entire contraptions area, which i don't want to do.
  • Avatar of Citizen 101
  • So... You want people to stop using wiremod so you don't have to glance at threads that you don't happen to like?

  • Wire has been a pain for me. Every time someone comes onto a build server I run, it's always "Where's wire?" Are they incapable of building without wire? I wouldn't call someone a builder if they rely on anything BUT Gmod.

  • Wiremod takes the fun out of building cars and shit and operating them manually. "LOOK AT MY TURRET I MADE WITH WIREMOD" "Hey buddy, I can make a turret without wiremod that I can operate better than yours manually. And it's not ugly as piss."
  • Avatar of MGlBlaze
  • I try and combine the elements of basic Gmod construction, and then enhance that with wiremod stuff. I don't make the same boring crap over and over. Though I'm still learning.
  • Avatar of supertoaster
  • I hate wiremod. One time this wiremod nerd comes up to me "I AM BETTER THAN YOU AT WIREMOD" Then he shows me this engine that looks ugly as fuck. It does alot of spinning things. I ask him what does it do. He says "IT'S AN ENGINE NOOB LOL" So then he drives his engine car, so i nuke it. Then he spams "WHAT THE FUCK" about 20 times. The only things i like about wiremod is the automatic stuff. Sometimes it gets boring, but it is also fun being followed by a car :v: then ramming it :dance:
  • I've been trying to teach myself Wiremod for quite some time now. I keep putting it down and going back to it again. It gets confusing sometimes, and I've not even touched an E-Gate yet! Edit: Or a Delta chip!
