So I know the basics of LUA and I thought I would try to make something with it, my idea was to make a simple weapon vendor. You click on an entity, a menu pops up and you click on one of "x" buttons. I just can't seem to get it to work. If anyone has any idea of how I should go about making this I'd appreciate any and all feedback. I've thought of multiple ideas now, but I just can't figure it out
What have you got so far?
Make a normal entity.
Set usetype to SIMPLE_USE.
Create ENT:Use function and use a net message to open a clientside menu.
Alright this is what I have now.
util.AddNetworkString( "ClientSide" )
util.AddNetworkString( "Weapon1" )
function ENT:Use( ply, c)
net.Start( "ClientSide" )
net.Receive("Weapon1",function (ply, len)
local button1 = vgui.Create("DButton", frame )
button1.DoClick = function()
I thought I'd send a signal to the server that the button was pressed so the server can give the player (ply) a knife, but I get this error message:
There is more code, but this is the part im struggling with, I can get the frame open and a button works to close the panel if I press it, but it doesn't spawn a weapon.
[ERROR] lua/entities/testent/init.lua:30: attempt to index local 'ply' (a number value)
1. func - lua/entities/testent/init.lua:30
2. unknown - lua/includes/extensions/net.lua:32
The order of the callback arguments matter, for net.Receive it's (len, ply) not (ply, len).
