Grappling Hook v3.4

Originally uploaded by HOLOGRAPHICpizz on 1st November 2011 19:08 pm

I recently started playing gmod again, and realized that this addon is still slightly popular, so I decided to release this updated version with some minor changes.
I remade Hxrmn's Grappling Hook with lots of bug fixes. I have Hxrmn's permission to edit and redistribute this.
This addon is realeased under the MIT license, which gives you the right to use, distribute, and modify as long as you give me credit.
It has a cvar (grapple_distance)that defines its maximum range. The default range is -1 (unlimited). It will not latch onto anything that is out of range. This makes it useful in applications such as stranded, spacebuild, or roleplay.
Changelog 3.4:
- Changed default grapple_distance to -1 (unlimited)
- Replaced the zoom function, it will now respect the users' default FOV, and zooming is snappier.
- Cleaned up the code a bit and updated the contact info.

This download looks like an addon. You need to extract the downloaded zip and put the addon folder in your Garry's Mod addons folder. You should end up with a directory structure similar to below:

  • steamapps
    • common
      • garrysmod
        • garrysmod
          • addons
            • grapplehook <-- Addon folder!
              • e.g.
              • lua
              • maps
              • materials
              • models
              • etc
