Description
This weapon is meant to be a recreation and improvement of Zoey's (Magenta's) Zombie Master Flashlight once available for Garry's Mod 10.
This weapon is recreated from scratch to provide a similar function to the weapon removed from garrysmod.org years (a year? two years? I don't know, two computers.) ago.
This weapon replaces regular flashlight functionality with a new flashlight held in the hand of the player. The player can use a simple melee attack while holding the light and the light source follows the weapon's view model.

The light source in this weapon, however, will never be bound to the model at the wrong angle. This is because I have bound the light to an attachment on the model, so it will always face in the proper direction. This weapon is also customizable, with the ability to select different textures and colors for your flashlight beam and the ability for the server to disable the flashlight when necessary.

To change weapon settings, a menu is available under the options tab. To add new textures to the menu, the method is essentially the same as adding a new rope texture, or a new texture to the standard lamp tool. Make a new .lua file in the autorun folder containing a line with the following format:

list.Set( "FlashlightTextures", "effects/flashlight/flashlight_crappy", { Name = "Crappy Example" } )

This weapon hasn't been tested online, but hopefully won't pose problems for anyone planning to use it online.

Model and animations are originally from an older version of Zombie Master. Diffuse map is based upon a texture originally by Bobba Fett, and the normal map is my own.

It doesn't remove the ability to use the F key does it?
The last flashlight weapon addon I downloaded removed the use of the key.

It does. It's in the Options tab, under flashlight. The option says something along the lines of "Use engine flashlight".

I find it quiet annoying if im building, I got this addon for Roleplaying but sometimes in dark areas, I need a flashlight, but I cant acces my physics gun at the same time. I want this addon to have an Enable button to change if you want you flashlight as a weapon. Right now, im just gonno uninstall it.
