• How do I stop players from exploiting the Duplication tool?

I am using both Falco's Prop Protection and URS to try and restrict the tool, the problem is that players can easily just bypass this by using the duplicator tool on a prop to remove their restrictions entirely. https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/418566/5be9c5fc-fe9c-4564-b5c1-36880ebb0487/image.png Then, when players left click to paste anything on another item, this happens: https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/418566/4adcbb21-933c-4490-8b05-ea7d280b92b8/image.png My workshop collection is: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1640747185 and I have tried to fix this myself for several days, but I haven't found a way to fix it.
not allowing the duplicator
Now how would I do that? Clearly me telling that to people verbally won't make them listen to me.
typing in google "gmod restricting tools" helps. How do I restrict weapons/entities/tools?
You just sent me the exact same thing that I have on my server already, URS and FPP are broken, their exploit is if you place it on top of a prop. That's what I'm trying to figure out, not how to restrict tools because that is mostly clientside for the selection.
you can disable tools, and then they cant use the duplicator anymore. also just saying "URS and FPP are broken" is really short thought
I mean I want the tools to still be on the server, but the problem is, I want staff members to use it. URS and FPP don't exactly get the job done as they still have exploits which bypass their restrictions entirely. I linked the workshop collection to see if any of those items conflicted with the restrictions, but I'm not getting any help out of this. I have owned many servers and I have never experienced this glitch happening before, clearly it is an addon or something, but I don't know that.
That's weird. Did you try to uninstall everything but ULX/URS/FPP? Or did you try any alternatives (e.g. Vermilion 2, other prop protects)? Also why do you need to restrict duplicator when you can just pull the prop limit down?
Theres an exploit with just abusing a net message within the sandbox gamemode. There is another crash exploit with bouncy balls. You only can disable bouncy balls and disable the net message for duping.
SNTE offers a solution against abuse concerning bouncyballs as well as the toolgun tool "Duplicator" https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1308262997 otherwise there are two nice scripts to help staff https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=896579220&searchtext=spam+tool https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1538129802
hook.Add( "CanProperty", "stopusingmyduplicator", function( ply, property, ent )     if ( !ply:IsAdmin() && property == "duplicator" ) then return false end end ) This basically just only allows admins to use the duplicator tool.
