This is NOT a request, as I’m making these myself, but should you feel the urge to make them, then by all means, please do.
Also, I am not releasing any scripts here because 1) it’s the wrong section for doing so, and 2) this is still just an idea for the roleplay community, not the general GMod population.
I have never seen this before on a server.
Ever (but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist).
What it is:
You know how most modes force you to use a pre-defined model for your job? Yeah, I hate that, so I’m working on some SENTs that allow you to change your playermodel (useful for undercover police work, criminals infiltrating the police force, etc.). Of course, they’re only cosmetic changes, so your job would stay the same, and anybody who was smart enough to compare your job as listed in the TAB menu to your playermodel would notice (provided the mode lists jobs in the TAB menu, otherwise you’d have to actually interrogate them (ACTUAL ROLEPLAYING FTW)).
How they work:
You get ahold of a disguise/uniform (from the police armory, clothing store, etc.), and just press your +USE key on it (usually “E”, unless you’ve redefined it on your keyboard). Your playermodel is then changed to whatever disguise was in the box. Then, another box containing your old clothes will be dropped on the ground, so you can change back if you feel the need to do so.
So far, I’ve managed to make a metrocop disguise, but that’s about it, because I’m lazy. Last thing I was working on was a way to save your old model to a box SENT, so you could change back, but I was having a hard time doing that, so I gave up for a while.
Some feedback would be greatly appreciated.
And don’t say, “This could be used for minging!”, because really, anything that gives the player even the slightest bit of freedom can be used to minge a server. That’s the major flaw with roleplay in GMod.
But, if the server has good admins, then anything that could be useful for minging can instantly turn around and become a roleplay-saver.
