    This was originally made for GMod 9 by KuroNeko so credit of idea goes to him. I have recreated it for GMod 10. Also some credit goes to Joel_Yeah for starting it off.

    M-way is a scripted entity that multiplies until it hits something.

    This video can explain it further.






    Changes colour depending on state.
    Press use to expand/retract.
    Wire inputs/outputs are included by not required.
    Inputs: Toggle, Expand, Retract
    Outputs: Expanded, Retracted
    Makes sounds
    It's a SENT, put the MWay folder in /lua/entities/

    I strongly welcome suggestions and criticism.

    Edit:
    gm_construct_vamp
    Map in video

    Edit:
    Raiden0899 has modified this to add some stuff.



    Raiden0899 posted:
    I edited this to include a third wire output for the length of the MWay and so that the extending parts can't be physgunned.

    That's my own construct map, I'm always getting requests to release it but it's not really finished. There's some pictures floating around here if you want to have a look. :keke:

    Do these fade in? I know the gmod9 version's didn't, if they don't I suggest you make them do so as it'd look incredibly cool.

    Awesome SENT. By the way, where can you get a decompiled version of gm_construct?
    All I find is Gmod 9 versions.

    Good idea, how should I do that? I'm using timers to create them.

    Are your "M"s custom entities? If not, make them custom entities and do the fading via setcolor on their think event.

    Cool, So it acts sort of like a bridge. Please release that map. (When it's finished). That's so cool, it's a portable bridge. Gold star.

    I just got done playing with it on freespace06, and it is exactly what I wanted.

    Brings back great Gmod9 memories.

    Again, excellent job.

    That's awesome!

    They should make portal like game mode where you use the portal gun, this thing for bridges, and other stuff to get through the level, and using limited bridges, portals, etc.

    There was a version of this, I remember seeing Absolute Zero and KuroNeko playing with it on Kuro's server, that had a different model. Looked like a panel but the ends curved back, like this:
    Code:
    //
    ||
    \\
    It was a lot better than just an M. :)

    Sounds good, if you want to change it there's a line in init.lua that says TheModel = Model("whatever.mdl") and you can just change it. If you find that model and it's in the main hl2 model gcf then I might consider changing it tp that.

    Hot damn, you people should learn to ask.

    I had this remade within 2 weeks of GMod10 coming out, just I didn't release it because I couldn't work on Lua stuff for a while. You didn't even give a sales pitch.

    Edit:

    Hang on, I'll find my version.

    I attached it to this post - can anyone see it?

    Just a hint; if you're going to recreate it, at least drop me a PM.
