Smart Welder v2.1

PLEASE COMMENT ON THE FORUM THREAD:http://forums.facepunchstudios.com/showthread.php?t=273988
A tool for GMod10 which takes the drudgery out of welding large contraptions and forts.
Rather than manually welding everything, you can simply select the props that you want welded (this can be done with a single click using auto-select), then right click to perform a smart-weld using the chosen settings.
Props are automatically welded to their nearest neighbours, and extra stability welds can be added automatically too.
A video of the smart-welder version 1 in action can be seen here:

By the way, the STool is packaged as a GMod 10 addon, so unzip the file into your "garrysmod/addons" directory.
Changelist:
2.1 :-
+Minor interface fixes and more script comments
+Disabled use of prop protection by default
2.0 :-
+Added welding/nocolliding over time to avoid crashes
+Weld to prop ability (hold use/run when right clicking)
+Settable weld forcelimit
+Props deselected after use and returned to their original colour
+Option to use the run key instead of the use key for smart-snap users
+Existing welds can be removed, using refresh welds mode
+Auto-freeze option to freeze props before the weld begins
+Tool moved to "Weld - Smart" on the constraints tab
1.1 :- Added radius nocollide, auto-unfreezing and ability to weld to any entity with physics.

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
            • smart_welding <-- Addon folder!
              • e.g.
              • lua
              • maps
              • materials
              • models
              • etc

Don't know where the Garry's Mod folder is or how to extract zip files? See more useful installation tips.
