Constraint Information Tool

Select a prop and it draws out all the constraints attached to it. Handy for trying to build efficiently and minimize lag on a contraption.

Update on 2/25/13:
- Optimizations to draw functions, better FPS while drawing constraints
- Text overlapping should be less of a problem now
- Right click a prop to get even more constraint info

This tool is broken, as it no longer displays any constraints.
Tested in both single- and multiplayer.

+FreeFry You've never used the Undo list, have you? You get a timeline of everything you've done, and you can undo specific tool events by clicking on them in the list. Go to utilities and be amazed!

As of today, tool wont work on new creations, but does for dupes.

Removing specific constraints is impossible without removing all of the same type and then recreating all of them - blame garry/source engine.

I agree with Eduardo; that would be incredibly useful. Even without, this is going to help a lot. Thank you!

It would be cool if this could remove the constraints.

All I wish Is is that I could edit the welds such as removing them specifically. That would be the god tool.

sorry, im fairly new to gmod. what exactly does this show? is it just how much a rope or weld can take before it breaks? thanks, and sorry for the noob question :P

I agree. I've been playing around with it trying to figure out some sort of workaround for the overlapping text but I haven't come up with anything that doesn't look like a complete mess yet lol... I'll update this when I do.

I really like this tool, but it's annoying when props with more than one constraint to each other have overlapping text and draw lines. It makes it hard to tell if I did weld and no collide stuff, or if I forgot something.
