NPC Spawn Platforms v3

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)

  • Can you add a new feature?
    Unfortunately not. I am not adding new features right now as I'm focusing on other things.
  • No NPCs spawn/NPCs stop spawning
    There are a few other addons out there that break this one. Every time I find one, I inform the author but new ones keep showing up. Try disabling or removing any addons you're not using right now to see if that helps.
    If it doesn't help, disable all addons except this one and try to spawn zombies. If it still doesn't work, put a message in the forum.
    Also, if you find an addon which breaks this one, please leave a comment so I can try to fix it!
  • I found a bug
    Please make a comment, I will always fix bugs
  • I want to use a SNPC/nextbot/vrej that's not on the list
    Some NPC addons use their own system for spawning NPCs. This addon only works with the built in GMod NPC system. Sorry.
  • I want to use a weapon that's not on the weapon list
    Most weapons that are not on the list are not compatible with NPCs. The weapon coder has to add a bunch of extra code to let NPCs use it.
    If you know for certain a weapon works with NPCs, please speak to the coder to ask them to add it to the list.
    If the coder refuses to add it to the list, as a workaround you can write an autorun file to add the weapon classname to the NPCUsableWeapons list.
    If you don't know how to do that, please ask a friend for help. I don't have time to help you.
  • Does this addon work with addon X/NPC Y?
    I don't know.

Is there anyway this is gonna get updated?
When I have the DRGBase addons, and I'm possessing an NPC, when I press the button for them to spawn at the platform, they spawn at where I'm aiming instead of at their platforms.

I have been looking for this

They only do damage if I spawn the headcrabs or the other enemy manualy
MosinNagant Oct 7 @ 12:40pm 
I disabled all my headcrab mods and tried a different map but they still did no damage
MosinNagant Oct 7 @ 12:30pm 
When every I spawn a headcrab spawner and a human/combine spawner the headcrabs don't do any damage. I'm not sure if it's because one of the mods I have.

I'm not surprised that something isn't working for me since the last update was over two years ago. I want zombies to spawn randomly so I don't have to half-click my keyboard to turn on individual platforms, but that's impossible frome what i see. I thought the option didn't work for me due to other mods, but not this time. maybe it's too complicated for me, maybe the mod is "bad" idk
