Featured by Wooden TroutPropeller Tool GuideWhat to Expect
I'm writing this article for the people who are currently confused about the propeller tool found in SS Dark RP located in "PHX Tools". In this guide I will teach as much as I know about the propeller tool. I may not know EVERYTHING about this tool but at least I'm giving you some information about how to use this tool. The main thing to know is safety, if you don't do anything about safety then you'll be in big trouble for propkilling (Maybe other stuff if you are really that bad).
-EnjoyBasic Stuff to Know
☼Propeller Force: How much your propeller will pull. Depending on how much your device weighs, your going to want more force (I recommend placing the force somewhere near the weight of your device).
☼Speed: This only changes how fast the propeller spins, not how fast the propeller will pull your device.
☼Acceleration: Kind of delay before your propeller will start pulling your device where where ever your aimed to towards (I recommend not using this at all, it is very hard to control)
☼Decceleration: Opposite effect of Acceleration
☼ For RP and stuff Leave the Sound Pitches at Zero. No one wants to hear those sounds, it gets annoying after some time. Leaving then at Zero or leaving Sound box unchecked will turn sound of propeller off.
Those are really all your need to really know about the tool options. Something I do is switch the propeller force until I like that way my device moves. The buttons like Toggle or Sound are pretty easy to unsderstand unless you have never used these options before in your building.Safety First
As you probably know, the propeller tool only has 1 model to selet from. This model is HUGE
so when it spins it will most likely kill people near it. You can prevent this by right clicking the propeller tool with your No-Collide tool so that all players and props will be no-collided with the propeller. I recommend no-colliding the device you built too because that will be moving along with the propeller. These are the only things that will ensure everyone's safety.Locations, Locations
When building dangerous things like propeller devices, would should build in areas where not many people will be walking around. Some places I build my devices are the back entrance to the PD and the Park. These places have a decent amount of space for the device and at the same time not many people around. You can try building in some of the warehouses if you aren't going to fly your device too far or if the device is small.Easy way to say it
☼ Place where not too many people hang around
☼ Decent amount of space
☼ Place your device will fit inOther Info
This guide may not answer all of your questions but at least it helps a little bit so you may succeed in what you do. The guide will also be updated because of some missing information I couldn't recieve because of a GarrysMod Update that wouldn't let me play Gmod.
I hope this Guide helped you at least a little bit.
