PS: Its good that we can play it already to fix em and make them right.
Okay all the big bugs are dealt with. Now i just need to fill a server with players and see what happens.
It'd be nice to have an official server. I'd need FTP access as well as rcon.
Ok guys, this is a radbox test server. Add it to favorites, right now just testing for bugs.(It's locked atm.) Also, give us a few suggestions.
The IP is: -snip- Probably going to take down the server, the most players we've had is 6 and we haven't gone over that.
It's currently on revision 40, and has no extra mods. 32 Slots.
I keep dying from radiation :psyduck:
Huzzah! :science: If you buy Anti-Rad you can get rid of Radiation! Who would have thought, huh?
There's the problem.
was playing on 126.96.36.199:27015 and I walked into one of those electrical fields. I heard the sound play and at the time I should have disintegrated i lost connection with the server, so that appears to be broken.
Also, connorclockwise could you give me the password for the server?
188.8.131.52:27015 doesn't seem to be restarting...
Also, the stashes are a bit broken. You can't open them from every angle.
And PLEASE add a crosshair for everything. It is difficult to aim at small objects like dropped vodka bottles.
And prevent important items (from the job) from spawning within the radius of radiation.
I also made a post in the mapper thread, would be nice if you gave it a read.
we need an steam group for radioactive sandbox players :P
Yeah I would join, but Merzbro would you let us? :D
Vandooz, its me Timbo :D
Someone can go ahead and make a steam group for this if they want. Maybe post all the server IPs in it too.
I'll join the group.
But I think I screwed up while adding my own ammo system :(
Is there a 3 ammo box limit for the whole gamemode or something? Every time I try to spawn a faction trader and if I get near them, the game crashes.
And all I did was mod the ammo system and set current weapons to my new ammo system. If it was a lua error, wouldn't the whole gamemode bug up with errors and not crash?
Hey, I'm the guy who owns the 184.108.40.206:27015 IP server with it on it, I just noticed that now it isn't working properly, I'll try and get it up. Also, make sure you have the map gm_atomic before you join.
I'll edit this post once I got it working, it was working great last night. Only problem is with those purple things that just randomly teleport you (those don't make much sense) or those things that insta-kill you (those are just unfair, I call them shit-storms)
EDIT: It's up :D That was fast.
Actually, I don't think its on me. I renamed a separate folder and downloaded it with the http://radioactive-sandbox.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ SVN link and played it. Even then when I spawned an npc_trader_exodius or something like that, the game still crashed.
Am I doing something wrong or is it a glitch?
Can someone help me on this one?
Strange, yesterday when we played for 4+ hours straight and had tons of those field things none of us ever crashed.
A suggestion: Sometimes you get stuck in the inventory menu (doesn't happen often, but still happens a bit) and you have to rejoin to get it away.
Another suggestion: Maybe something more to do? I'm not sure how the gamemode would play with a full server, as so far highest we've had was 6, but it doesn't seem like there is that much to do. And how do you get into the "Loners" faction anyways, or is that just a random unneeded part of the scoreboard?
I'd like to somehow take a populated RP server and switch it to radbox and see what happens. All the necessary tools are there, just need people to play.
I'm also working on an option for servers allowing players to build things since people like to build shit in RP.
The inventory bug (where you can't leave the menu after opening a stash) can be circumvented by crouching, since that ability is not disabled in the menu (and is probably best left that way). Just crouch and you can leave by pressing e as usual. It appeared when I opened, chose take all (the button in the lower right corner) and quickly tried to exit.
Also, consider posting some data like item list/function. Include health and stamina gain for foods and such.
Also, it appears as if I am missing some sounds and textures. Shouldn't these automatically be downloaded upon connecting? If not, maybe add a complete install instructions in the op (for the client and not just for server owners), maybe also reference this thread somewhere in the game (I lose) for bug submission, feedback and troubleshooting.
It is turning out great. I have high hopes for this thing.
Also, you should make the prop drop if you're holding it too close, then people can't prop surf, and if it no-collides with only players when it's being held, that would be great too.
In the meantime, I'm going to update the server to Rev 37 and possibly change the map to rp_apocalypse. I'll edit my post saying the server IP/Map if it does change.

You can find what map it's using on the post I made above (Page 3).
Okay, new features added.
- Added convar to allow players to spawn with a physgun + limited prop spawner tool.
- Added prop spawn limit convar. Default is 10 props.
- Admin placed props are protected.
- Fall damage hurts more now.
- Radar is fixed.
- Loner team doesn't show in scoreboard if it's disabled.
Prop surfing is near impossible since i boosted fall damage to be more realistic now. I might just make props nocollide while you're carrying them with the physgun though.
In what way was the fall damage broken?
Wasn't broken. I just made it more realistic now.
Is the error with the npc_traders crashing gmod fixed as well?
just type "sv_radbox" in the console to see all the available convars.
There is no prop protection in place since it might lead to people trolling (someone could just spawn a metal panel and block off aa doorway).
I know I'm posting a little too much but, no-one got back to me so far. The game works fine until I spawn a npc_trader with the item placer. And when I do place one, this happens:
Are there any suggestions to fix this at all or do I have to reinstall Garry's Mod...
Gah, that didn't work >_<
I think my only option here is to reinstall Gmod...
Edit: Well, reinstalling gmod did work. The gamemode works pretty good, even with my ammo mod. So that crash was on my end, sorry.
But when I shoot the standard glock, It shoots but also clogs up my screen with this lua error:
Code:[gamemodes\radioactivesandbox\entities\weapons\rad_base\shared.lua:531] attempt to index field '?' (a nil value)
Is it because of your changes? There's nothing wrong with my versions.
Also if there are any gmod news sites looking for something to write an article about, my gamemode could use some publicity.
Hmm, I didn't quite modify the swep base, but I'll see what went.
Also, I'll give you the IP to my friends server once I finish up with a few more touches.
Hey Rambo I'm the guy who hosted the official server last time, I still have a dedicated box; and I can give you that server back if you want. I don't think you're on my list anymore, however, so PM me your steam community page or something.
He's got access to the Invision Gaming server so expect the latest updates on that server always now.
I'm working on a new anomaly, hoverstones. They're chunks of rock with strange gravitational properties. you'll see them hovering above the ground, moving randomly around the level.
Problem is, i don't know what to make them do. They aren't dangerous as they are now... Give me some ideas for ways to make them dangerous!
Or maybe i shouldn't make them dangerous?
random raddiation weirdo poison shit on them so if they get VERY close you explode or get radiation poison
