What's the actual story behind Spacebuild (post-update)

Yeah I just purchased gmod again and I am trying to figure out what the actual fuck happened to Spacebuild in the time I was gone. What are the svns or version numbers of life support and resource distribution or whatever is needed to be installed to play it these days. With everyone complaining that “x” update broke parts of “x” addon it’s seriously a drag trying to figure out what’s the proper version to use.

Basically you need a lot of addons (around 10 gb) and it 's almost always server specific (you will get missing things everytime you change your server) = A real pain in the ass .I recommend you joining a server ,downloading required things (SBMP ,CAF ,RD ,LS…+server specific addons) and staying on it

There are still the older versions: SB2, RD2, … (although you’ll have to look them up to find one of the fixed versions)
The current version is SB3, RD3, LS3, … and still works with the current gmod version.

As mentioned in the post above, there are other addons to (such as SBEP), but they aren’t required to get spacebuild to work. Although a lot of servers have them installed by default.

Main SVN’s (version 3):
CAF (base addon for SB, LS, RD): http://customaddonframework.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/
SB (addon): http://customaddons.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/Spacebuild/
RD: http://customaddons.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/Resource Distribution/
LS3 (core): http://customaddons.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/Life Support 3/
LS3 (entities): http://customaddons.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/Life Support Entities/

Optional addons (Although you don’t need RD/LS for SB to work per se either):
Petrol Systems: http://customaddons.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/Petrol Systems/
Resource Transit system: http://customaddons.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/Resource Transit System/
Black hole: http://customaddons.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/Black Hole Cache/
SBEP: http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1090864
Gas addon: http://www.facepunch.com/threads/617445

I’m no coder, but based on the folders and how it didn’t show up in CAF or anything else, it seems that Petrol Systems only works with SB2. Could be related to how it didn’t have a CAF folder, but having just typed all this, i’m gonna try it with your link, as that one DOES have it. Edit: upon searching around, I discovered that GmodSVN had different links than you for both PS and blackhole =O glad i found this post.

Blackhole cache by itself did not work for me (possibly due to having the wrong SVN), but it’s included in StargateFreak’s LS entities (which did work). The SVN for that is http://stargatefreak.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/%20stargatefreak/SFLS3/

Gas Systems is pretty sweet if you look into it. SB devs do you have a link for the mining addon? CAF refuses to enable it (it loads, but when i click enable it says it returned nil) and i’m wondering if that’s a case of wrong SVN as well.
