Sup facepunchers, I hate to make yet another cluelessism thread but I’ve looked all around as usual, and I dont see other people having these problems, and if they do i havent seen them being fixed.
First and most important things first.
I make my models all fine and dandy (apart from the alpha problems explained in my “Naughty” alphas thread which hasn’t solved itself yet) and when used from spawn menu they work a charm. BUT I’ve been told that GM_spawn does shit to models to fix their shitty physics, and sure enough whenever my models are spawned as entities in the server I work for physics tends to do it’s own thing.
my examples include things that will only stand a certain way up (otherwise they half sink themselves in the ground) things not reacting to being shot or thrown very well, or at all. and getting stuck in objects in ways that were impossible when using Gm_spawn.
so my first question is how in notgod’s name do I get physics as fixed as it is while using gm_spawn? any tips for getting really lifelike feeling on physics?
My second problem is pretty straight forward, I simply want a portion of my model to glow/emit light (without the aid of hammer, obviously) so far I’ve only found selfilum which uh… is pretty useless.
tl;dr give me tips on physics and lighting for models please
I love you guys, keep doing that amazin’ shit.
