Barring my one-word post, I’ll elaborate my final opinion on the SBEP Addon.
It’s not bad. But it’s not the greatest thing ever either. Yes, it has some very impressive, well, modeled props, and a lot of props in terms of variety. It has some well-coded SEnts, Fully-functioning turrets, functioning doors and hatches and airlocks and vehicles with snap-together parts. It is probably one of the greater addons to grace Garry’s Mod, up there with PHX and Wiremod.
However, SBEP by itself get’s very boring very quickly. It’s not so much the textures(The props and hull parts all have varied and well-done materials and skinning), but the repetition. Those same octagonal hull pieces, repeated over and over again. The same flatgrass-scale spamfests that would need divine intervention to function, let alone move at all. Ships like the one the OP ‘created’ are what give SBEP a bad rep: idiots who have no clue of aesthetics, functionality or even scale.
I would go into detail about what I do when I use the models and hull pieces, but this is turning into an essay so I’m going to cut it short. Bottom line, SBEP’s not the greatest, but it beats boxcar and train spaceships any day of the week.
I demand to know how you made that smexy space station. I can’t even tell apart individual props there.
