Orb of Light

Remember the good old days in Gmod 11 where you could use the light tool to generate a very dim, glowing orb of light to use for special effects in comics/machinima? Well, now that simple Orb of Light is back! Not as a tool of course, but as a spawnable entity!

Based off the coding for the gmod_light by Garry Newman (the code that generates the light that you see on the Light Tool) and with the tubular bulb model removed, you can use this Orb of Light for practically anything: magic spells, soul crystals, whatever you desire. It's even colorable via the Color tool, so you can customize the auras to whatever you need. And because it's an entity, the light tool is untouched so you can use the stock lightbulb tool/model for whatever else!

(Updated! There was a model I used that gave the orb 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: This has not been tested on multiplayer; I doubt it will even work there. If someone with a running server can test it and let me know how it works, it would be greatly appreciated.

Happy Comics/Machinima making!

You can't change the size or brightness. My Classic Light stool allows you to change the brightness and radius of the light.
