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!

All you need to do is right click to spawn it without the tether. If that doesn't work let me know.

I'm sure you may have answered this somewhere, but I can't seem to find the light without the tether attached. It shows it's in my spawn menu but nothing in it.

I wish there was a mod to bring back the phone camera

Oh... that's what you were talking about.

Unfortunately there is little that can be done about that. I wish I could, but that would probably involve messing with the duplicator code itself, something a little advanced for me yet

Did you forget about the duplication bug?

What's that all bout? This is the classic light stool, it's got the models needed. You can just use this one... it's working fine as far as I know.

Well, Corridore, how about asking Garry Newman on Twitter on how to fix the Classic Lightbulb? Its optional. I was making a Garry's Mod video and I have to be forced in order to make a scene all over again. If not, then Garry Newman has to add the Classic Lightbulb to the mod himself.

The dupe tool has never really worked well with this tool for some reason, not since the change to update 13. Try using Advanced duplicator.
