Description of Gmod Escape Menu Editor
"Gmod Escape Menu Editor" is a Gmod addon that is used to fully edit your own Escape Menu in a custom way. This script will contribute to the aesthetic identity of your server to make it unique.
Bring out your personality through a visual identity that you have entirely imagined and that you can modify as you wish!
It is intuitive, pretty, modern, and will allow you to simplify many things such as your event communication, the history of your universe in order to inform your players of its context, to provide crucial information to your operation, to quote the rules, but also to put news with custom images.
Choose your colours, text font, images and even music!
You will be able to move each element or customize the click action on each element and also choose if the click opens a link, launches a command or allows to join a server, in order to easily access your donation page or shop or addon collection. If you associate the click with a command, for example to open the interface of another script or commands related to your gamemode this is possible. The command will also concern the connection to another of your servers.
With only one addon, create an exclusive Escape Menu on your server, make your aesthetics evolve whenever you want without rebooting your server, without having to buy another Escape Menu, without touching the source code, since everything is completely editable from its interface.
I guarantee that this Escape Menu will be the only one on Originahl Scripts, I won't sell a new version of this script since each update will be free, you pay for it and also for the support. You will buy only one here and this only Escape Menu will be updated according to the suggestions made to me, support guaranteed.
The script is translated by default in several languages.
It contains :
A fully editable News bar, the action when a user clicks on the news image. The storybox block which will have several features, the background image, your server logo. The action of each button, banner, image in the storybox (e.g. putting a link will open a web page if the user clicks on it or will launch a client or server command if the user clicks on it)
How does it work for the user? The user when connected to your server, when he presses the Escape key the menu you edited will open instead of the Gmod menu. Your own banner ads will scroll and change automatically.
Support for static and live backgrounds with simple image links. With caching allowing a single download of the resource stored in the client's data folder.
Includes a server hopping feature to connect to other network servers by configuring the command to a banner, or button or in the Storybox.
Structure your buttons as you see fit, connect players to the server donation page, your store, the forums, your Discord etc. Remove / Add and modify the buttons you need.
A block I call StoryBox that can be used to tell the story of your server, list/memorize your seasons and scenarios. This Storybox can be used as a message of the day, a MOTD, set up a link or a command for your users to go and see or get something. For example "Click here to get your daily credits" or "Vote for us", etc. I think you'll have no shortage of ideas on how to use this to your advantage!
If you have news you want to broadcast to your players in a non-intrusive way, "Gmod Escape Menu Editor" is the tool for you.
You dream of blocking access to your console, this script allows you to do that too. On the security side you can choose which users can access the console in game.
