    Hello to all Garry's Mod engineers and mingebags! I know we have talented people on Facepunch who know wiremod and every other tool inside out, some of these people are: Jackpody, Mr.White, Balto-the-Wolf-Do, and many more! I also know a lot of people are struggling with something in their Gmod projects, wether it be not knowing how to make a fading door, a robot-mech that can walk sideways, and etc... That's why i'm making a thread for user generated tutorials. So if you have your own tutorials you made already post them here!

    Format types: The tutorials can be in video form, simple text, and photos.

    Note: If your going to make video tutorial please remember words and voice are recommended.

    How it works:
    Some one may request how something is done
    Ex: "How can I use wiremod to make an advanced car engine?"
    Then someone else will create a tutorial on that topic as a response.

    Rules: 1. If you're stuck with your project, be specific and be descriptive as possible as what your current sate of the project is and what you think and know you need help on.

    2. Don't reply to someone just to make fun of them for not knowing something (basically don't reply just to be an ass.)

    If you have a request for any other rules just tell me.

    PRIZES! If this thread is successful then after 3 months starting now, the top contributor of the thread that's been most helpful will receive a prize of 1 of the following 2 hats for Team Fortress 2!



    or

    The handy-mans handle


    The following tutorials belong to their respectful owners.

    Mingebag tutorials:

    Minge-Mech

    Simple wire-turret

    auto gun shop for dark rp



    Advanced tutorials:

    How to use e2

    How to make a wire-engine

    Side note: Another reason why I am making this thread is to maybe inspire Garry to bring back the old construction (or whatever it was called) subforum that a lot of people want back.

    Have fun!

    I know a lot of people like making cars so why not a car alarm?

    What you need

    Target finder
    Set to track players
    Set the radius to 20

    Sound emitter
    Set to a sound that you want to go off

    Input
    Set to a key that will toggle the alarm off and on
    Check Toggle

    Greater than gate X2
    Found in the "Gate->comparison" menu

    And gate
    Found in the "Gate->logic" menu
    Wiring it

    Wire a Greater Than to the Input
    Wire a Greater Than to the Tracker
    Wire the And to the 2 Greater Thans
    Wire the Sound to the And

    If it is wired correctly then when someone enters your vehicle with the input active the alarm will go off. of course this can be modified to do anything when someone enters your car because all it does is send an output of 1. This output can then trigger anything you want. Be imaginative

    Note: Improvement: remove the greater than gates and wire the numpad input and target finder directly to the and gate as they alreay output 1 or 0.

    Actually, Instead of teaching noobs to use laggy and cumbersome gates, Things like this should have e2 tutorials.

    If you want to work using methods that haven't been used since 2007, feel free to. Don't make it so others who are just getting into this stuff have to carry the completely unnecessary baggage of outdated techniques. If you're going to offer tutorials, make sure they're new. You wouldn't teach a Computer Science class with text from '95, would you? Exactly.
