    Sorry for posting this here but it seems no one visits the acf thread anymore and since most of you here use ACF I was thinking maybe you could help me with this?



    When I spawn an engine or something it's invisible when I look directly at it missiles make my ACF menu completely disappear.

    Also errors spam everywhere..

    Yeah but it helps retards like us who aren't E2 gods to make a decent engine. If I make a car it doesn't rely on e2 too much, like literally all it does is control the throttle, steering and gear selection. Think about it from that perspective.
    WITH SLIDERS AND THRUSTERS YOU NOOB >.< PISTON ENGINES ARE THE ANSWER TO THIS
    acf is good for nooby lil shit like driving around thinking you know EVERYTHING about engines in real life when really its just a video game. at the end of the day your not some italian grease monkey nommin on a hogey in a garage. you a zitty child in front of a computer and when you slap that acf engine o your car and weld it there your like ZOMFGOMOMBBQSAUCE I MADE AN ENGINE!!! I MUST POST TO FACEPUNCH!!! PEOPLE BE IMPRESSED WITH MUH SKEELZ!!! and the reason people use apply angle/torque is to make it realisticly powerful. who the hell makes a car and doesnt want it realistic. im just sayin acf is nooby as hoverballs and dragging mossman behind a jalopy

    applytorque is only acceptable for crawling.

    thank you thats my argument.

    Edited:

    While I know the creator's will probably rip off my head and shit down my neck, I think that ACF should have a custom engine maker. Like a separate engine that you can modify to your own needs. Weight, power, torque all that lovely shit, so we don't have to complain about not having the right engine for what we need.

    A stretch, but I think it would help out car builders alot.
    they do its called piston engines

    Woah woah dude, let's not go full intolerant retard.

    ACF engines exist and are popular for a variety of reasons. It's not like I'd ever build anything powered with them - I prefer slider engines - but it makes it easier for people without engineering degree to build contraptions.

    My opinion on the topic of engines (and gmod engineering in general) is: Each to his own. You can make a bathub car with wheel tool and run it about if you want to, I'm not going to yell at you for how nooby it is. If you claim it to be better than piston engines, go ahead. Gmod is a sandbox game, there's no goal. There are no "proper" ways to play it. You can do whatever you like, if you find it fun.

    1. You didn't need to rage.
    2. I'm not a noob for using ACF for my cars. Just because YOU think I'm a noob, doesn't mean I am.
    2a. Noobs are people who use ACF without the slightest clue of how it works.
    3. Piston engines, fucking suck. I have tried a few engines from people, and they just suck badly. Not too mention they lag the entire server when used. They mess up VERY easily and are not too reliable for really anything. I don't really care if I'm "doing it wrong" or whatever it is you're going to justify the use of them for.

    ACF has never done me wrong and I'd like to keep using it.

    Next time you have want to rage on here, have a valid reason, or at least one that's correct.

    Thank you, and have a nice day

    Hey.

    Can't we just calm down.

    And not yell at each other for liking different things?

    I mean, these childish arguments about nothing at all really are getting ridiculous.

    Lol.

    Face it, "piston" engines are good for two things; working poorly, and lagging servers, and with your history of horribly inefficient prop use, I sure hope you don't strap thruster engines on your cars in multiplayer. Acf is good for people who want some sort of standard to go by(for comparison/competitions and whatnot), or judging from the replies I got earlier, those who don't have the time/knowledge to code their own.

    Not to start a flame war or something, but thruster engines used to be accepted before acf quite well. People usually had a couple of them spawned on a single server at once, nobody complained.

    These days, I don't really have the balls to spawn a thruster engine car dupe anywhere...

    if one were to determine what attributes
    the noobs share with a beast, it would be
    that of the rat.
    Now the Fuhrer and Gobbles propaganda
    have said pretty much the same thing.
    Where our conclusions differ, is I don't
    consider the comparison a insult.
    Consider for a moment, the world a rat
    lives in. It's a hostile world indeed.
    If a rat were to scamper through your
    front door right now, would you greet it
    with hostility?

    Has a rat ever done anything to you to create this animosity you feel toward them?
    Rat's spread disease, they bite people -

    - Unless some fool is stupid enough to
    try and handle a live one, rats don't
    make it a practise of biting human beings.
    Rats were the cause of the bubonic plague,
    but that was some time ago. In all your
    born days, has a rat ever caused you to
    be sick a day in your life? I purpose to
    you, any disease a rat could spread,
    a acf user could equally carry.
    Yet I assume you don't share the same
    animosity with noobs that you do with
    rats, do you?

    no you dont

    Yet, they are both rodent's, are they
    not? And except for the fact that one
    has a big bushy tail, while the other
    has a long repugnt tail of rodent skin, and the wheel tool,
    they even rather look alike, don't they?

    yes they do, dont even try to argue with me


    What a tremendously hostile world a rat
    must endure. Yet, not only does he
    survive, he thrives. And the reason for
    this, is because our little foe has a
    instinct for survival and preservation
    second to none. And that Monsieur, is
    what a noob shares with a rat.
    Consequently, a gmod soldier, conducts
    a search of a server suspected of hiding
    noobs. Where does the hawk look? He looks
    in the barn, he looks in the attic,
    he looks in the cellar - he looks
    everywhere, he would hide. But there are
    many places it would never occur to a
    hawk to hide. However the reason the
    Fuhrer brought me off my Alps in Austria,
    and placed me in Facepunch threads today,
    is because it does occur to me. Because
    I'm aware what tremendous feats human
    beings are capable of once they abandon
    dignity.

    looks better than your hon :>
    but no sure they lag a little bit more but th reason i steer twoards them is this

    if you where given the choice between a car with a piston angine and one with acf slapped on it with the weld tool, which one would you pick? the piston of course, simply because it involves more engeneering. it takes more skill to make a piston engine than slapping acf engines on the base of your car. dont get me wrong acf is an amazing addon which has its uses for testing chassis for me, but still

    how do you use hoverballs
    slappem on with weld, wirem up
    how do you use acf
    slappem on with weld, wirem up

    surely temple you can see where im coming from.

    That makes no sense whatsoever. So tell me, where does acf draw its power, if not from magic? The mobility components are coded entities with specific limitations. Its no different than coding your own with e2, in fact acf is rather pointless in that regard.

    You missed the point, I meant that a chip can just be turned up in power whenever you want. In acf you have to use an engine with certain amounts of power/torque.

    Stop. Stop being such a fucking moron. You're making yourself look like an idiot. You had potential, at least I thought, when I saw your 4x4 in action, and then you go off saying that ACF is noobish when it's the widely accepted method of making vehicles work in these forums. ACF is NOTHING like slapping hoverballs on something and calling it a plane like you claim. You probably tried learning it and couldn't understand how it worked. Stop telling people that the way they build is noobish compared to your way, because it makes you look like a fucking moron.

    Awesome dude! But how on earth are you planning to make it be able to survive on any server?

    Stuff+Video
    Dude, now you're taking it too far, unless you want to be the newest hated player then stop. Your 4x4's were awesome, but don't think you can just
