  • I'll get a better name for it later :v: You post your GMod WIP Contraptions here. Good place to get some constructive criticism. Balto's OP from last thread: [quote=Balto] To those that don't know the drill, this thread is for posting contraptions that you are currently working on or contraptions you've made that are too minor to warrant their own thread. It generally gets pretty big, and is a great community assimilator.

  • Updated my mek for all these planes im now seeing [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/8682580/GMOD/gm_bigcity0034.jpg[/img] also added a self destruct that deactivates the e2 when the ammo lights up aka it falls over and dies
  • [QUOTE=Uncle Bourbon;34509910]Add some useful tools and links to them to the op. It might help new builders.[/QUOTE] Good idea. I'll do that tomorrow. [editline]edit[/editline] I'm in Sweden what.
  • So I go the second last post in the old thread, and asked for a tutorial on how to power something with an engine, not how to make an engine, sorry for the misunderstanding :v [editline]2nd February 2012[/editline] I think I got an idea of how to do it from some of mrwhites videos.. anyway does anyone have a package/list/svn of what tools to use for building engines?
  • I'm making the list now for the most used addons for building shit so you should look back in a moment. There's probably more addons that's good for building engines than I can list though.
  • Well for engines I'm not so much into yet, I just wanna build some cars for now, seems more simple. [editline]2nd February 2012[/editline] but thank you for doing a list :)
  • [QUOTE=Jackpody;34510017]Good idea. I'll do that tomorrow. [editline]edit[/editline] I'm in Sweden what.[/QUOTE] So, what's it like to be in Sweden? :v:

  • Corsair combat ready with four alternate firing 30mm HMGs. Retracts by way of fading door. It even stalls realistically if it pitches too sharply out of relative wind, though I have no idea how I got it to do that, I certainly didn't strike out for that, but it kind of pleases me. Feels strikingly similar to Il-2.

  • Beautiful. Can I get a close shot of your windscreen design? :v: [editline]3rd February 2012[/editline] also I added a bunch of neat tutorials for building shit. there's also a transcript of the OP if someone needs to quote it in another thread when this one is closed at 30+ pages in the future.
  • I tried to do that BRD system, could not do it to save my own life, and then once I thought I got it working, it just sprung back and forth... maybe I should just stop trying.

  • There shouldn't be any reason to ever use PHX 2 metal props, yet I see that you have some on your wings there. Please don't tell me you like that texture.

Do you guys use specific stuff to build the vehicles?[/QUOTE] In terms of props or tools? Tool wise I use a mix of Percision Alignment, Easy Precision, and careful, manual physgun placement. In terms of props, we are usually using phx flat or superflat plates in useful and explosive in combination with phx tubes in specialized. Detail props are usually vanilla

  • Working on a hatchback; my first car. The suspension's bottomed out with the weight of the engine and gearbox so the height looks a bit off.
