Easy Prop Damage system for those that feel the need for destruction.

However the first copy you’ll see on there should be the same as the last release, and may break as I update it, so be aware.

Nice release.

Also, you sound out of breath throughout the whole video.

yea, I was really tired when I made it, it was like 3am or something

Is there a convar for when the constraints of a prop break?
Oh cool, I just read it again, that’s exactly what I wanted.


Though in the video, your voice reminds me of someone:


haha, LOL, I… Don’t… Know… what you’re WHEEEEZ* … Talking about.
I was getting very frustrated at the fraps demo, it’s hard to do a video 30 seconds at a time.

Add some better effects on prop destroy, smoke puff or something.

The effects are selectable in the options menu, there’s a bunch in the list.

Updated to v2.1: Added Ammo Entity for Heal SWEP

Updated to v2.2:
Fixed Health Display To Center On Entity
Changed Text Style and Added Green to Red Fade based on Health
Added sv_tags ability to code

You should use img_thumb tags in the opening post so we can see the pictures, and makes it look more professional.

will make

And media tags for the youtube video.

I wanted to, but I couldn’t find the list of tags availible, so it’s img_thumb for images and media for videos?

Why don’t you code a nospread so you can actually hit the object. You miss like half your shots.

[editline]26th December 2010[/editline]

nice script though

Is it just me, or is this script VERY laggy?

I was noticing that just last night, i will work on optimizing it over the next couple of days, but my internet at home is down at the moment.

what do you mean?

Also, this script looks really nice

on gm_flatgrass I get < 10 fps with this addon enabled and a fin plane I built while i usually get > 60 fps

Oh, well, maybe the script contains some loops?

(and thanks for clarification)

Optimized Code - A Lot of internal Changes
Added Option to Unfreeze Props on low health

Finally, a good alternative to SPD, and even better too.
