What is the Weight Tool?
The Weight Tool can be used to easily modify the weight of props. It is one of the most common building tools for Sandbox servers.

How does Improved Weight tool compare to the original Weight Tool?
Improved Weight is an entirely rewritten version of Marii’s Weight STool. It has been cleaned, optimized, and provides many new helpful features for clients.

What is new about Improved Weight?
> Firstly, Improved Weight adds language support.
Using my Localify module, I have added the ability to easily support many different language localizations. Players can freely switch between supported languages using a drop down menu at the bottom of the tool menu.

If you are multi/bilingual, please consider helping by providing translations into other languages.
You can find the list of phrases to translate at (helpful descriptions included for context) or (without descriptions for readability).
Please add me on Steam or contact me via private message if you are interested.

German localization support has been added! Big thanks to Time SchocK for providing these translations.

Spanish localization support has been added! Big thanks to **IFerPe01 **for providing these translations.

Small update (2016/01/08):

Improved the language switching feature.
You can now switch between languages instantly without the spawnmenu needing to reload (which can be intensive for lower-end computers).

• **Moved the language combobox to the top of the menu. **
The language options were being cut off on small resolutions, making some of them inaccessible. This should also help increase visibility for language changing feature.
The toolmenu screenshot in the OP has been updated to reflect this change

Small update (2016/01/13):

Notification bug fix
The Sandbox test environment I use must have an addon that defines the NOTIFY enumerations serverside, because I wasn’t aware they weren’t defined serverside otherwise. I only discovered this after finally setting up a DarkRP test environment.
I’ve made the enums fallback to their hardcoded values if they aren’t found. The issue has been resolved.

Let me know if there are any other issues, and thanks for your support!

Small update (2016/04/17):

Danish localization support has been added! Big thanks to The Outrageous Dane for providing these translations.

• Switched over to the new HUD style of showing the left-click, right-click, and **reload **buttons and usages.

Let me know if there are any other issues, and thanks for your support!

I can translate to Russian!

Small update (2016/05/21):

Cached client convar objects for the HUDPaint hook rather than calling GetConVarNumber (same way I do it in Improved Stacker)
Korean localization support has been added! Big thanks to FCB for providing these translations.

Two-update Tuesday!

French localization support has been added! Big thanks to **Vulpelix **for providing these translations.
