Drawing extra stuff on the HUD

Well, i’m creating a DarkRP HUD and it’s going well, I was just wondering how to draw stuff like the players name and job like normal above their heads and like door owners/groups. If anyone could help
that’ll be great.

Take a look into cam.Start3D2D.

For example:

If you want a better or more in-depth example, _Undefined’s pointshop actually comes with a text hat where you choose your message. It wouldn’t be very hard to change the text to ply:Nick or whatever DarkRP uses.


Alright, but DarkRP has it built in but I can’t find it to place on my HUD i’ve tried checking the original HUD but I can’t find anything.

Bump – I’m still trying to find the default draws, if anyone could help that’ll be great.

Look around the other client side lua files, it has to be somewhere.

Default draws? As in the code for draw.SimpleText(), etc? If so look here: https://github.com/garrynewman/garrysmod/blob/master/garrysmod/lua/includes/modules/draw.lua
