Gmod NPCs Spawn Point Creator - Script


Demonstration Youtube video of Gmod NPCs Spawn Point Creator

Dynamically generate spawn points for NPCs and Nextbot customizable, quantity, delay, max life point of each, rally position after appearance, default weapons, original model, and includes a npcs optimization module. Configure how far away the system generates npcs, if the player moves away from it the npcs despawn automatically, can be activated and deactivated from its interface.

Since version 2.3 the system works like in MMORPGs, the Spawn NPCS is despawned depending on the presence of players in a zone. If you set the respawn to 10 minutes, if the npc is not dead it will spawn quickly when there are players in the area (which you will have set the distance so that they don't spawn in front of the players to look ugly). If the players leave the area, the npcs generated by the spawn point disappear. They will then respawn later with all their life points.

If they die then they will have to wait 10 minutes before they can respawn automatically.

๐Ÿš€ Prรฉsentation de NPCs Spawn Point Creator

The NPCs Spawn Point Creator is a gmod addon specialized in the generation and creation of spawn points for Npcs and Nextbot on your map, to automatically animate your gmod servers in an autonomous way.

Specially dedicated to Npcs and Nextbot the system allows you to create several spawn points, to configure a spawn perimeter where you can use a single point that can spawn several npcs in a large perimeter that you can define in metric unit.
It is also possible to assign them default equipment such as weapons, provided that the Npcs works properly with the weapons.

Optimize your servers by predefining a spawn condition if there are players nearby, in fact, do not spawn npcs where there are no players, in order to optimize your server's processor and also its bandwidth in the case of a poorly optimized map. This activation and deactivation distance is configurable from the interface of each point with a simple button.

Create rare npcs, by modifying the spawn chance of a npc, or create spawn points of bosses with a lot of life points, or npcs that are both weak and resistant. Indeed it is possible to choose the health points that the npcs generated by the NPCs Spawn Point Creator must have. If you have decided that a bump must have 1000 life points. Then click on Life in the Npc box from the interface and drag the slider to get the 1000 value, I made it as easy as possible to use and easy to understand by translating the script into several languages: ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ช ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ต ๐Ÿ‡ฐ๐Ÿ‡ท ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ด ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ช.

Optimize FPS on the client side by choosing whether your Npcs or Nextbot Spawn with their shadows or no shadows, from a simple button.

On the management side, I usually create a mini ESP that I call : AdminEyes, which allows you to see all the spawn points of npcs on your map. That's why you can name a spawn point, give it a color and an icon. To help you to have a good visual on your organization. And also to allow your staff members to better organize themselves and to have an overview when working as a team.

Regarding the definition of the rally point, by setting a position to the NPC from the interface, will have the effect that after his spawn, your NPC will start to join the point that you have defined. Useful when you want your NPCs to spawn out of the field of vision of your players.

Since version 2.1 it is possible to configure the relationship of npcs with players. You can choose between, by default, friendly, enemy, scared and neutral.



โš™๏ธ The different optimization tools

Today the maps on Gmod are huge. And the more they are huge the more they seem empty. Because it is impossible to fill it with Npcs without consequence on the performances. This system allows to despawner the Npcs when the players are far from the zone. And to make them respawn when the players approach it.

Optimization is an important key point in this script, different little tricks can avoid overload and give the impression that the server is full of life with Npcs and Nextbot.



โšก๏ธ Optimize your server bandwidth and server CPU

With the distance related optimization module, define if the spawn works or not when there are no players in its radius, the panel allows you to choose the distance in meters. For example if you set the distance to 50m, the spawn will generate the npcs you have configured if there are players in the perimeter.



๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ Npcs and Nextbot removal system when players are no longer in the area

The delete module allows you to delete npcs if the players are no longer in the zone. This frees up considerable resources for your server since NPCs are mostly the entities that consume the most resources on your server.



๐Ÿ’พ Independent persistence system on Gmod

Put away your toolgun, my persistence system is included in the script, open the panel and click on Pertistant : ON / OFF
This system allows me to create a security that makes it impossible to accidentally delete the entity when its persistence is activated



๐Ÿ•น๏ธ Gmod Command list

Command to remove all npcs spawn points on the map: nord_npcspawn_cleanup
Disable all spawn points without deleting them: nord_npcspawn_enable_all 0 : 1 = edit mode enabled, 0 = disabled

Show all cubes: nord_npc_show_all_cubemodel
Make all Spawn Npcs persistent: nord_npc_spawn_persistent 1 (0 to disable persistence of all Spawn Point Npcs)

Compatible with FAdmin
Also works fine without an administration system by adding your steamid in the configuration file
Compatible with all gamemodes, DarkRP, DarkRP clones, Sandbox, Base Gmod, TTT, HogwartsRP, MilitaryRP, StarwarsRP, PrisonRP



๐Ÿค” FAQ

[LN] ใƒ…: "What are the little icons at the bottom of "Life"?"
Author: "You click on them and choose how many hit points the npcs should have at the time of spawn by the dot. So you can make spawn points for for example bosses, which are npcs with higher life points, or make places where the difficulty is higher."

User2: "What are the little icons at the bottom of "Chance"?"
Author: "Chance is inspired by my loot system. You can put several npcs in a spawn point and define which one should spawn more often than another. This makes it possible to make npcs rarer. This makes it compatible with many ideas and gamemodes.

User2 : "Why make npcs spawning without their shadows or with them ?"
Author : "Some NPCs are not configured correctly for this, when you use addons that generate dynamic shadows, the npcs ends up with two shadows, and this option exists to gain some FPS on the client side. Sometimes quality takes precedence over optimization and this is a choice I want to leave to the users of this script.

โ˜ฐ 5. Name a Npc spawn, configure a color and icon
What is it for? When you have several spawns you will like to have a global visual, and know from a map which spawn it is.

1. When you enter a point name you will see it displayed when you activate the admineye. Which is a small ESP to see the position of each point placed.
2. Allows you to choose the color, for example I have the points where the bosses spawn in red.
3. Assign an icon to a point. Click on Spawn Icon to display the list and make your selection.

Rename NPC Spawn Point
โ˜ฐ 6. What is the purpose of Spawn Timer and Quantity?
Quantity NPC Spawn Point

In blue : Spawn Timer allows to define a loop in which a npc will respawn. If the npc is not dead or deleted then others will not spawn.

In green: The quantity will allow to configure the number of NPCs that will spawner.
โ˜ฐ 7. What Chance of Spawn is for - Ratio 100%.
This allows you to set a chance if a npc should spawn or not. For example if you set it to 50% then an npc will spawn 50%.
Leave it on 100% if this variable is not relevant in your project.

En bleu : Set radius of spawn
โ˜ฐ 8. What is the purpose of Spawn Within a radius 1m?
While existing spawn points generate at a single point an Npc. This one allows you to spawn several in a large area around a single point. To say in terms of optimization that for a single spawn you can generate the appearance of several Npcs randomly in an area.

1m is the distance configured in metric units.

In Green : Set chance of spawn
โ˜ฐ 9. What is the admin eyes?
The admin Eyes allows you to see all the spawns you have placed on the map. Because once configured you will disable the visibility so that users connected to your server can not see them.
ESP NPCs Spawn Point

The admin Eyes also allows you to better organize all the points of Spawn of Npcs.

The admineyes is activated by clicking on the Admineyes button of any Npcs spawn point.
โ˜ฐ 10. I would like the Npcs not to spawn when the players are not in the zone or to delete themselves when they are far away
The novelty with this script is that it is possible to activate a module of optimization of npcs on your server, this one will allow not to make spawning npcs where there are no players on your map.

And also to make them disappear automatically if players leave the zone or disconnect from your server.

In short put npcs where there are players. This is useful in various gamemodes. And nice not to have to put 200 poorly optimized Npcs on the whole map to animate a server.

Optimisation mod NPC spawn point
In red 1: Configure the distance
In purple 2: Activate or deactivate the module
โ˜ฐ 11. What is the Detection button? And Add Manual?
Detection button NPC spawn point
Detection allows you to add Npcs to the spawn. Spawning a Npc next to the spawn point you want the spawn to generate. Click on Detection. The NPC will then be removed and a copy of it will be in the list. This means that the spawn will spawn it at the rate you set.

Add Manual, is a manual addition of an NPC by entering the name of its class.
โ˜ฐ 12. I would like one Npc to spawn more rarely than another in the list, is that possible?
Yes, the Chance system allows you to set a chance rate per NPC added in the Spawn point. Just click on Chance to set the value.

Set rarity npc spawn

In the example of the single zombie that will have a 90% chance of appearing and the rest, 5%, the zombie will appear more often than the rest.
โ˜ฐ 13. Is it possible to force a NPC to join a position after his spawn?
Yes, click on the small position icon at the bottom left of the Npc.
Set NPC move point

You will have several ways to proceed:

Method 1 : Select my current position to define the point where the NPC will join after his spawn.
Method 2 : Go to the position you want and paste the command indicated, it is automatically copied in your clipboard so you will only have to paste the command in your console.

If you want to assign the rally point to several NPCs then the best way is to open the interface with the command and apply your position.

Works with all NPcs. For Nextbots they must already work with the MoveToPos function for this to be possible.

The Npcs must already be able to move on the map to be able to move to the position. If this does not work then the map needs a nodegraph (for Npcs) and a navmesh (for Nextbots)
โ˜ฐ 14. What is the small 3D icon under the image of a NPC?
Some Npcs have the same class name but several models, the 3D Button allows to force a model. They are usually registered automatically when you insert an NPC with the Npcs detection system around the spawn point.

But you can change it from the interface:
Set NPC model
โ˜ฐ 15. What is the small weapon icon under the NPC image?
Set NPC weapon

This button allows you to add a class name to an existing weapon that already works on the Npcs.
The NPC will be forced to spawn with the weapon chosen here.
โ˜ฐ 16. How to configure the max life points of NPCs?
Set NPC life max

Click on SET LIFE and choose the value that suits you. With this system you can for example create zones where the NPCs have a higher level and are more difficult to eliminate or create low level zones with weaker NPCs.
โ˜ฐ 17. What is the shadow icon for?
Disable shadow gmod npc

By default NPCs spawn with their shadows even in dark areas, which is a pity for the clients' FPS.
With this button force the NPC to spawn with his shadow or without his shadow, the shadows have an impact on the performance, you choose.
โ˜ฐ 18. How to remove an Npc from the list?
Cleanup NPCs Spawn Point

Click on the image of the Npcs. If you want to empty the whole list then click on Cleanup in the bottom right corner.
โ˜ฐ 19. How to add Npcs in the spawn point?
Go back to question 9.
โ˜ฐ 20. I would like to be able to increase the hp of mobs beyond 1000 hp what should I do? Its to place a boss.
You can change the maximum value of the interface with a simple variable in the configuration file:

cfg.interface_setmaxhp=1000
โ˜ฐ 21. I would like there to be npcs only where there are players on my server, is that possible?
Yes, then configure the radius. The spawn distance from the interface.
โ˜ฐ 22. How do you remove all the NPCs generated on the map by spawn points?
The npc_cleanup command added in version 2.6 (december 2023) will allow you to delete only the npcs from spawn points. It will not delete the spawn points themselves.
