Customizable Flashlight

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.

Settings & Customization
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.

swat calls it the best flashlight, frankly, i prefer the default, also, i only have 6 variations, is this what you meant by, "...stripped some features from it"? also, i really love this addon

So it was. This guy took this addon, stripped some features from it and removed every reference to me. For some reason, however, he still felt the need to leave my comments about my inspiration.
