Okay, don’t get me wrong, PHX 3 is a wonderful addition to GMod. It’s also over-rated and mostly useless.
Everyone seems to be ranting, “get PHX 3!” Well, yeah the props are great and stuff but I’ve only ever used what - 30 of them ever (and I like building things)? The excess props just make me load spawn icons and take up space. GMod takes 130 mb to get on my P.C., but adding PHX 3 makes it over a gigabyte. It’s like forcing a 30 pound turkey down someone’s throat. Okay, I’ll definitely have some of it but I don’t want all of it.
So here’s my suggestion: How about a seperate SVN is made that only features the bare essentials? The ‘General Construction’ tab, along maybe with a few other tabs that are popularly used. I only ever use the General Construction one.
Another idea, maybe a seperate SVN could be made for each category of props? That’s asking quite a bit I’m sure but it’d definitely be nice.
Yes, I do realize I can go into the folders and delete the parts of PHX 3 that I don’t want but that makes updating the SVN tedious and very time consuming - I also don’t know by the folder names which props they contain.
So, how about some input? Bash me silly for saying bad against PHX?
