NPC Spawn Platforms v2

Description
A highly customisable STool that allows the wielder to create a SEnt that will continuously spawn the specified NPC with the specified weapons until stopped, allowing them to stage huge NPC battles, either against themselves, or against rival NPC factions.

You can find the tool in the section "Lexical Tools" which is near the bottom of the tool list.

------------------
This addon has a complete API that allows it to be controlled by Wire, Lua and the Hammer I/O system, allowing it to be easily embedded in Dupes, Gamemodes and Maps.

(Which I will post more information about soon)

(a fgd is now available[raw.githubusercontent.com])

Just wanted to say thank you for being one of the few workshop contributor who actually takes time to answer people who comment here.

@"your anusdefender": Only way to do it would be using wiremod or building your own custom addon right now

@Spec Oups: I've got a ticket on this already: https://github.com/Lexicality/NPCSpawnPlatforms2/issues/5
It's definitely possible but really complicated. I might see about making some kind of control system seperate from the platforms to manage all of these ideas people have.

I thinked about a cool feature, but I'm afraid it would be kind of hard to do it. I have some clues about how to achieve it, but I'm not a programmer in any ways.

SO, what about implementing platform based relationships for NPCs ? For example, NPCs spawned on platform A will hate NPCs spawned on platform B, regardless of their original faction and NPC type.

This means that we could theoretically have two platform spawning the exact same NPC (combine soldiers for example) and they would fight each other, disregarding their faction and their NPC type.

How to enable the activate platform if the player is nearby?

Difficult due to how it's built, but not impossible. I'll make a note

Since it seems that you still actively respond to this comment section... I had a little bit of a suggestion.
Why not have a pool of NPCs that can spawn on an NPC platform rather than limit it to just one... As in, adding NPCs to a pool that have a random chance of spawning on said spawner (add a little mix to NPC battles)?

is there a way to bind a key to activate them?
