Why are materials restricted in crafting?

Post  BFG on August 18th 2014, 3:13 am

I went through considerable trouble to make a system that rips materials from props and places them on my guns so I could preview what they'd look like before I burned an emerald on it, only to find that when I finally did find a material I liked, I went to the server to apply it and was denied because it wasn't on the whitelist.

I can understand why this is necessary for builders, but why would gun crafting need this restriction? you cant abuse materials on a gun model like you can with a base, and the worst that could happen is a pink checkerboard (which is easily remedied).

A while ago we started seeing a plague known as "Selling custom materials pm with offers" where people would sell unmodded guns with materials on them simply because they had found how to enter the material filename in it while others didn't.

This created a huge amount of drama and in the end I had to restrict the ability to do that to avoid people exploiting dump people for profit and others getting angry about it and whining.

Well maybe we can dissipate the drama by providing an interface that lets people choose materials by just looking at a model that has the material they want? that's what I did for my script, minus the whole interface part

I mean, people still have these guns. I saw a guy running around with a gatling SA-AR15 with the predator shader. So if anything these guns have become more valuable simply because you can't make them anymore.

All I wanted to do in the first place was to use the soda can texture D:

Honestly the reason why it was disabled is because drama started with me and another old staff member and the person asked for it to be disabled soooo, I doubt it will come back.

Wasn't that person perma banned though? Or am I thinking about the wrong person

Predator is in the list already

And you can just give me the material filename and i'll add it to the tool list

I didn't ruin shit, it's fucking drama that did. Plus I wasn't the one who asked it to be blocked.

I wasn't blaming it on you.

As for Bob's post, I appreciate the offer but I feel this would set a bad precedent where people start asking you to add materials that only they will use... As a server owner myself I find I pretty irritating when people start asking if I could add <x> to the server, and I imagine you'd get pretty irritated too. Asking you to go out of your way to add a material just because I happen to want to use it seems mighty selfish.
