Classic Light Stool

Don't like the new light stool? Want to go back to a simple bulb/light orb to light up hallways or create special effects in your comics/machinima like the one in Garry's Mod 11? Now you can with the Classic Lightbulb Stool!

It has the fully customizable rope tether, colors, brightness, and radius settings that the GMod 11 Light Stool did. It's also usable as a prop, just like in the old days. As a bonus, it does NOT overwrite the new light stool and has its own cleanup options, so you can use them both in tandem!

Credits: Garry Newman for the Light Stool, of which this code was loosely based off of.

(Updated! There was a model I used that gave the Classic Light nice ball-like physics, but it turned out to be from HL2:EP2 and not HL2 like I thought. Rather than telling everyone to go out and buy ep2, I simply ripped the model and updated my content accordingly. Sorry for the inconvience!)

NOTE: Several friends and fellow Gmodders have tested this mod on their server and confirm it works well. The default maximum spawn limit of the Classic Light is set for 10, however, admins can change this in the console by this command: sbox_maxclassiclight + the limit you want to set. For example, if you wanted the limit to be 100, you would type "sbox_maxclassiclight 100" in the console. Thank you server admins for testing this for me!

right click to spawn one without rope, then pick it up and freeze it where you want to go.

That is a problem with the duplicator, unfortunately. Try Advanced Duplicator.
