Wassup, modelling section.
If there is one thing that I get enraged that in GMod, it’s that how I can’t have a specific size prop, that reduces prop usage and makes it easier for me to create a type of train I want to make.
Currently in GMod is the implemented infamous pack, Phoenix Storm’s Model Pack. In there are certain props, they used to belong to someone called Hunter, I don’t know who this guy actually is, so I can’t find him and ask him to add on to the pack. Phoenix Storms comes and goes and I think I recall asking him about this and he said he couldn’t do anything about it.
Another problem is that the sizes ‘jump’ over sizes. I call them thick plates, because that’s essentially what is shown mostly throughout the thread. But the same applies to thin-plates, where they only go from 1x1 size to 1x8 size. Then, for the thin plates, they skip over 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, and go straight to 1x16. Then 1x24, then 1x32! What happened to the props in the middle? The thick plates don’t even have a 1x16.
Basically, these props:

And I want them to have a more varied size of props. People have complained about how unstable their cars, trucks, planes, trains, boats, ships, all types of things are because of the fact they have to use props in awkward places that could be filled easily with a bigger or shorter prop, but sadly, it makes it harder for us to actually BUILD something sometimes because there aren’t enough specific prop sizes.
I get that there are ways to make things stable, but the problem is also prop count, and the more props you use, the more unstable and laggy your contraption and maybe the server will get. No-one wants that. Plus, if you’re not the parenting type, lots of props fly about and that is just a pain in the ass.
In this picture, you can see the following:
These are currently the only big sizes you can get, though there are some really big props that are 8x8, 16x16, 24x24, and 32x32. Obviously not good for a car is it?
In these pictures, each new colour represents one extra size. So, for example, the first colour means 1x9, the second means 1x12, and so forth to 1x16. The white prop is a 1x8 prop.

So basically, if we could have more varied sizes, not just for the Thick Plates, but also the Thin Plates, that would be brilliant. Having them included in the current PHX implemented in GMod would be EVEN BETTER.
TL;DR look at pictures, make more sizes for these props
Anyone want somma dese?
