Previous Version:
Previous description:
I loved how fun Devenger's Spawnplatforms were, but I was annoyed at all the little bugs.
When I decided I wanted to make an event that used them, I knew I couldn't just shove them onto my server in their current state, so I did a complete rewrite of them.
Visually they're pretty much identical to the previous version, but this one has much more efficient code and lots of features for developers wishing to integrate them with their own gamemode.
Goes well with:
Update: I just noticed Devenger called his latest version "v2".
However, all the code said "v1" and I'm not going to do a reupload now, so oh well

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
            • npcspawner2 <-- Addon folder!
              • e.g.
              • lua
              • maps
              • materials
              • models
              • etc
