    Smaller American semi WIP. 112 props. That means I have roughly 88 props to make a trailer for it, awesome.










    Edited:

    Do these colours look good for it?

    If your employer started giving you great health benefits on top of your current wages, you'd be pretty happy. if, after a few months, he randomly took it away because it was causing instability, you'd be pretty pissed.
    your employer all along should have been giving you health benefits (or your government). Not having them is a disservice. And we should have all along not had to have our contraptions go to pot because our duper was a pile of shit. Again, having contraptions fall apart upon duping has cost gmod a lot of good builders.

    Yeah, but I don't keep my stuff to about 200 props because of proplimits but due to RSO. So turning stuff into magnets will allow me to 'exploit' myself around the proplimit but not the RSO cap.

    just as warning, sestze's on the warpath and something is conflicting with AD2 on GGG. he's going to remove it. something is causing AD2 to cause server instability.

    this problem is only so exacerbated on GGG, too.


    (he thinks AD1 is perfect and works fine)
    Cool because I like redoing all my constraints all the time.

    Guys, I have the ACF installed and figured out how to make the engines work with gearboxes and stuff.
    Is there anyone willing to help me with expression? As it's totally black magic to me and I would like to create simple cars and tanks with the ACF.

    Are you tired of looking at all these boring shapes of tanks with one barrel? Don't like small pack of crewmen? Mother russia has a solution just for you! Why you play with one turret tanks when you can have FIVE at once!

    T-35! Five turret tank operated by eleven crewmen and it only weights 45 tons!



    Why would you play with one turret when you can have FIVE at once! Drown your enemy in the lead! Fire at him from every gun you can point at him! Make your comrades proud!

    Before using this tank please talk with your doctor about modern russia or read recpie, if you can find any. This tank can be a danger for your life especially while fighting against german tanks. It's impossible to run from a enemy because it moves 30 km per hour and turning takes about 30 minutes. While being inside, cover yourself with additional personal armor like food cans, shovels and wood, because the armor is 20mm thin. Also try not to shoot your engine while operating turret on the back
    All I need to do now is make all these turrets be operational.

    My new Tiger AUSF E tank, soon to be riding in the fields of the server "The Kill Box"

    Shall first see service in:
    "Battle of the brittain"
    An event on the 10th of March wich invites everyone with an ACF build tank to fight on the server against eachother, TANKS only ofcourse.
    I myself, Vindicator will be commanding the Africa Corps with the tiger, good luck!

    Why? AD1 was used over 2? 3 years? More? Has GGG servers died during these years? No. Furthermore you can spawn with AD2 thing saved in AD1.
    that's like saying humankind got by with primitive medicine, and mankind didn't die out from it, why not go back to it?

    Edited:

    To reiterate what i posted in gmod disc; sestze's removed AD2.

    To clarify, sestze nor anyone else (including TB) has found any evidence linking AD2 to GGG's instability and "breaking over time."

    TB tried to help and sestze went off on him, too.

    RIP ggg

    He told me he wants to test running the server without it, which to be honest I would as well. Not really any way to diagnose the issue without trying to isolate it. In the name of community solidarity we ought to give some benefit-of-the-doubt towards GGG and keep at least some combat over there, I'm not going to leave it entirely.

    Watch as Sestze goes off on a tirade and drives everyone away, thus killing off the last decent GMod building community.

    I called it first.

    Oh I did it entirely out of spite. Completely. Utterly.

    Man you guys are such children about it. Please don't tell me what I can and can't do, especially if I'm trying to do something that'll help this shit work better.

    Since removal, we've had all four servers up for seven hours with no crashes. After those six hours, we haven't run into any of the bugs we were facing with pasting certain contraptions, nor has E2 broken on any of the servers. All in all, it's pretty damning evidence towards AD2 if I can leave the server alone and not have any issues with it. This is a Sunday, from 3 PM to 10 PM PST, too. Pretty good hours.

    Oh and if you tell me that it's because "ALL THE GOOD PLAYERS HAVE LEFT UR SERVER TO PLAY SOMEWHERE ELSE U DERP", good. If your shit's crashing us, I don't want you here either.

    I've been using AD2 plenty and never had an issue with my e2. My E2s fucked up on GGG way before AD2 was added anyway; the server's never been totally stable, probably due to the various modifications over the years and the simple fact that gmod is an inherently unstable system thanks to garry's asshattery. I've never heard of this issue on any other server, and most servers with wire now have AD2 (I think it might be included with wire). This should isolate any issues to something else. If not, well, either way you have the community, the people who your server caters to, who your server depends on in order to not be empty, except for one scatmanmech, collectively shaking their heads in disappointment. It seems yet again admin drama has claimed another server.

    tl;dr. I am disappointed. I thought you were more sensible. Now I guess I'm gonna have to go to whatever that other server posted was with the tank battle event named after an air battle or something.

If an internal Geiger counter detects radiation, the flask is shattered, releasing the poison that kills the headcrab. The Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics implies that after a while, the headcrab is simultaneously alive and dead. Yet, when we look in the box, we see the headcrab either alive or dead, not both alive and dead."

    i was once on my friend's server that had AD2 but for some reason he told me to not use it. maybe it was causing his server to crash as well.

    Weird how it varies between servers — Another friend of mine similarly had a number of bugs and crashes caused by ADV2, yet another friend has had it for over a month by now without any problems.

    Amplar and all the other GGG players, lets keep this all on-topic. I saw another topic about this so it might be wise to go there instead to discuss this and keep this topic to the WIP's. Just saying?

    What i've been working on since last evening, a 6-wheeled robotic rover with independent suspension, the mechanics and wiring are nearly done, at least the most complicated part is as well, the robotic arm mounted in the front:

    Stowed position

    Deploying

    Fully deployed

    Business end, utilizes a wire grabber and user

    What the wire panel looks like so far


    To do: Add an imaging mast on the top that can be rotated using the left and right mouse button

    Finished! 46 tons, five turrets, 30km/h, 10* per minute and large amount of the Russia. It has two seats, one for a driver, one for a gunner. There is a chip which controls which turret can shoot (so turrets wont waste ammo when the target is not on their side).
