    someone needs to make a powered hanging monorail car with a tiny little engine that swings around when it goes around curves
    Was planning to do that, but the chip I was using didn't swing around and stuff.
    I might make something like the Wuppertal railway, who knows :P

    Ogh god, new page!? errrrrm gotta think of something shit


    Redid tailights on Junior, because one year anniversary or something is coming up.
    and

    Trabant 1.1s are the new meta.

    So errm, welcome to

    I guess.

    Turret looks a bit 'dark' for now because PAC3
    Also it'll be hell for me to convert it to E2 because of holoclips and I have to manually invert ~9 domes in e2 unless Cheese wants to help (because inverting shit in pac and making size -1 makes stuff super fast and easy)
    Already doing a bit of hull detail over on the engine part:
    This is my first time doing a 'proper and realistic' cast design btw so don't judge too badly if I suck at PAC

    You know I'm fine with turrets or parts of hulls being holo to make them as accurate as possible, But only if it looks remotely correct. That turret really dosen't.

    Thanks,but that's just visuals. When it comes to functionality I can't make a goddamn box move in a straight line. That's what I meant.

    I would change the colors to a more brown color imo. The gun and surrounding bits being different shades is weird

    i lied sherman isn't finished
    modelled the suspension and now it has a roof-mounted .50 and a hull mg thanks to lenin

    also started on a T-50

    and my old shilka is now detailed and works

    there's also the ZSU-23-4M4 with the dual igla rocket pods, just slapped some stingers on the back and improved its engine
    and inside the shilka I tried something new, I made some E2s into large boxes and holo'd some computers and shit into them to make it look neat and now it's easy to disable

    Have a hologram 88mm,proper size,but at the cost of not being able to color the gun and not having a recoil animation...


    OR

    Have a legit 100mm gun sticking out of the mantlet like a giant dong?

    Go with the 100mm and give it a new Ausf one notch past what the real tank used. Call it a theoretical/prototype vehicle where they were experimenting with larger guns.


    Hell, you could even use the Soviet muzzle brake and call it a field experiment tiger mounting the gun from an SU-100.

    Hey good idea,but I'm thinking about making a separate version with that. Kinda like what they did with the 10.5cm Tiger II. However,I'm trying to make a Tiger H1...so yeah. :P

    EDIT: Also,I forgot holos are colorable lol

    ACF Guns have parent attachments on their models, you can do this:

    Code:
    holoParentAttachment(1, Gun,"Muzzle")
    To have whatever holo 1 is move with the muzzle, which coincidentally has the recoil animation.

    I made a public radio e2 to put in cars

    It outputs a string for the link, which can be used in stream radio

    Code:
    @name Radio
    @inputs Next Prev Active
    @outputs Song String:string Title:string
    @persist Files:array Dur Line:array
    @trigger Next Prev Active
    
    #[
    Please fucking read this i don't wanna help you do things that i've already listed in here cause you're too lazy to read this..
    
    
    Link the stream radio "Stream URL" to the chips String output
    Link the stream radio "Play" and the chips "Active" to a toggle input
    Link Next and Prev to inputs to change song
    
    Make .txt document at /garrysmod/data/e2files/ named "radio"
    
    Variables are split by "," in the document
    A song should look somewhat like: 
    
    1,230500,http://megan-allen.memory-of.com/uploads/audios/audio633701952397827500.mp3,Seven Nation Army
    
    This is my first song in my radio.
    The first number is the song number, first = 1 and so on
    
    The second number is the song length in milliseconds, so 5 minutes is 300000 milliseconds
    The number makes sure that the radio switches song when the song is over.
    
    The string is the string for the stream radio, outputted by "String:string"
    
    The fourth variable in this case "Seven Nation Army" will be outputted according to the current song.
    The first number doesnt actually matter, however it makes changing songs and links easier, since many links expire after time.
    
    You cannot upload music from youtube or soundcloud, and i wouldnt reccomend using "youtubeinmp4", since their links expire after time.
    I use "musicpleer.audio/" to copy links for all my songs.
    
    You can download my radio that i use for all my cars. I might update it and i might not...
    
    https://pastebin.com/hd0uDSG5
    
    good luck o/
    
    oh and also be sure to validate your links once in a while and replace broken ones
    ]#
    
    if(dupefinished()){reset()}
    if(first()){runOnFile(1),Song=1,fileLoad("radio.txt")}
    if(fileClk()){Files=fileRead():explode("\n")}
    if(changed(Next)&Next){Song=Song+1},if(changed(Prev)&Prev){Song=Song-1}
    if(Song>=Files:count()+1){Song=1},if(Song<=0){Song=Files:count()}
    if((changed(Song)&Active)|(Active&changed(Active))|first()){
        Line = Files[Song,string]:explode(",")
        Dur = Line[2,string]:toNumber()
        String = Line[3,string]
        Title = Line[4,string]
    if(Dur!=0){timer("continue",Dur)}}
    if(clk("continue")&Active){Song=Song+1}

    This is only made to play local links, however if you set one of them to the live radio and set the duration to a really high number then i think it works

    Looks nice but you really need to use any other colour than dark gray / black. In GMod, it sucks out all the life and soul of an otherwise very nice shape since the curvature just blends together and becomes a big blob. Paint it any other colour on the spectrum and give it some chrome to contrast it - will make it pop much more.

    Also, 8x8 APC I plan to release, but I need more ideas for vehicles. Terminator suggested a modern light tank.

    It's 26t, amphibious, speedy, and can carry around 8 dudes with some thick, but brittle armor.

    Turret container thingies isn't complete yet obviously, but it's coming together real nicely for me. So hyped to see this badgirl get painted in action because it looks ugly as hell with sprops material.
    The 2a46m looks sick though. Thanks AW models for being gorgeous.


    Once i'm done with it i'll move on to its brothers, sisters and cousins. (t72b m84 t72s t72b3? Asad Babil, bmt-72 and so on.)

    Also something extra.

    Because it's a ridiculous amount of props/holos

    Anyway, working on a M8 AGS/Thunderbolt ll/Buford

    The 3d model next to it is from AW, its shit and broken and only using it for hull angles and scale.


    It's 26t, amphibious
