So What is The Gims?
It’s a gmod take on the sims quite simply. I made this before and to be honest it was a total disaster. it didn’t work properly in single player and there where loads of bugs and it did not work at all in multi-player. Not this time though i have put alot of thought into how i was going to do it this time.
Last time you where just a player in noclip and you pressed E to tell the gim where to go. Even this was bugged you could not walk more than a few steps before the gim would just stop in its tracks. This time however it is a top-down camera and you use the mouse to guide the gim, using left click to tell them where to go and right click to bring up a menu of using things, as seen in this picture:
Last time the map was just 1 house quite small cosy but hard to move around in, especially with the old Gim. Now i have a large map and i can tell my gim to go from 1 end to the other and it won’t even stop.
Last time i never put anythough into chat becuase it didn’t work in mutiplayer but today i reallised that because i’m not viewing the world through the eyes of a player (i’m using a camera i made) i cannot see the default chatbox so i was thinking how am i going to do this, then i thought why not use the same system as i am using to create the name above the head. So thats what i did. Anything you say will appear above your head as seen in not very good detail in the picture below:
I am currently in the beta stage and will hopefully have a server up soon. Ignore most of the mosts on page 1 this is the old release thread that i resurrected.
Let me know what you think.
