    Hey TB, you've got a good duplicator here..
    The only problem I'm having with it is that when you spawn ANY item or contraption, the props do not automatically become yours. So when I spawn a contraption, the owner is "N/A'. I have to interact with the prop to become it's owner; ie. use the physics gun, gravity gun, or a tool gun. And then it'll say, "You now own this prop".
    Is there any way around this, a fix, something I have done wrong, or maybe a conflict?
    [EDIT]: I've got it resolved by reinstalling everything on my server.

    Can't believe I haven't seen this before now. I'll test this out, I've got a project that Adv. Dupe has turned into a jumbled mess on quite a few occasions.

    Very cool someone has taken up the job of making a new duplicator. I am installing this on my server right now and will be sure to report any bugs I find. Thanks!

    I need to do some testing with Advanced Duplicator dupes, or TB duplicator dupes. I'm going to be checking for errors and making sure they work correctly. I don't want a bunch of stupid easy stuff. I need them advanced and complex. If you want to help provide this to ensure future functionality zip up a file containing the dupes( please tell me which duplicator the dupes belong too ), upload them somewhere common(if I don't recognize the link it's not getting clicked on) and post it here in the thread or send me a PM if you don't want it to be all public.

    Things I'm looking for: advanced constraining, advanced wiring, parenting, and E2 stuff.

    Thanks.

    Worked on as in, it's being actively developed. I know you posted above me..

    Yes, it's always been worked on(silent development). I started over with a new one. It's getting close to release which is why I need dupes to test with. I've been using gmod.org for dupes but I ran out of good dupes on there.

    Out of curiosity, there isn't a way for your dup to take Adv Dups and convert them, is there?

    Should be possible to script that for batch conversion.

    But then you assume people are smart enough to do that on a DarkRP server..

    Just tested rev 37. This is EPIC.
    It even saves [ENTITY] wires. Tool menu done ten times better than Adv Duper one.


    But i found a bug...
    I just spawned models/props_c17/door01_left.mdl and copied it with "Paste at original origin" option and got this (in server log):

    Lua Error: [@addons\[tools!] tbs_duplicator\lua\weapons\gmod_tool\stools\tbdupl icator.lua:501] bad argument #1 to '?' (Vector expected, got nil)



    anyways, other problems (some of them was discussed above):
    * Everything spawning frozen. This is not always good, so there should be an option to paste frozen. (Adv duplicator in this situation just unfreezes props that wasn't frozen after all entities are created)
    * Everything spawns at original angles (add an option and/or pitch/yaw/roll sliders)
    * Z doesn't calculated correctly, so, for example, models/props_c17/door01_left.mdl always spawns partially inside a floor

    Dunno if this happens with anyone else, but tb's duplicator fails to load sometimes. Is this common and/or being worked on?

    it just stopped even noticing when I select a contraption...basically it pastes nothing but invisible collision hulls and can't save a contraption. Am selecting by nonparented props, doing everything right, etc. dunno if valve broke it with the new update.

    If this is still being silently developed, I will help test. I'm always enraged when I spawn one of my 4 cylinder engines and the thrusters fly around the map because the welds are broken.

    If you need dupes I can whip up some complex stuff. Please tell me this is still active.

    TB, where are you? :(

    I'm still here. Duplicator is very close to done. Adding lots of new features and I've found a few things that could have hurt perfect duplications over time, but now they should stay perfect. Making lots of optimization changes, trying to remove every bit of lag and making it very server friendly.

    Nice. I made a Reliant Robin and I was working on it for a couple of days. I used adv. ball socket to make the front wheel turn like an actual car, but after a couple of duplications, the wheel got weak and couldn't support the body.

    Hopefully, This can allow me to remake it without this issue.

    Please, please keep up the good work on this. I cannot describe the rage I feel at duping a ship I spent 4 hours on just to discover everything's been jelly welded.

    Does this tool use the same hooks as Adv Dup?

    When I spawn something I just built, all the thrusters fall off and a number of other welds apparently don't happen, so the whole thing spazzes out. Console has this to say:


    DUPLICATOR: File opened successfully.
    Set name:
    [@addons\tbdupe\lua\weapons\gmod_tool\stools\tbdupl icator.lua:271] bad argument #1 to 'SetAngles' (Angle expected, got nil)
    DUPLICATOR: Spawning...
    Trying to Spawn Resource Node: resource_node
    No effect data

    Of Course.

    Like what hooks?

    The errors in this tool don't apply anymore to the new one. The new duplicator is very different.
