Gmod Resources Collecting System - Addon
With Gmod Resources Collecting System, place resource collection points, gather, or extract ammunition depending on the use you give it, it will adapt to all such situations without the slightest effort, nor the need to have knowledge of Lua / GLua. The user will be able to spam the "USE" key in the environment to collect hidden resources. Like all my gmod addons, it is still a standalone, meaning it doesn't need a gamemode to work, so it is compatible with all of Garry's Mod gamemodes. A nice progress bar will indicate the progress of the collection followed by a nice animated notification displaying the result of the collection in the colour of the point you have predefined. This system is customisable.

📘 Description of Gmod Resources Collecting System
Gmod Resources Collecting System aims to bring to your Gmod server points of resources to loot, or resource extraction, the name you give it will depend on how you use it, the idea comes from an old reference on super nintendo "Secret of Evermore" the player digs each nook and cranny to collect and extract resources, I really liked this principle and I dreamed to reproduce it on my servers, so I propose you a similar system which will not be of too much of the gameplay of your server at the same time discrete and useful it will allow your players to explore the least recesses of it to discover its secrecies that you will have simmered with the help of my addon.
On the Admin side:
First create the bases, add either a model that will be visible or a simple cube that can be invisible. Name it and insert the different entities that the collection point will be able to output when the user presses the USE key when it is nearby.
The player searches the map near a point and will see a progress bar indicating that they have started collecting something.
Once the bar is complete, the resource is displayed nicely on his HUD, and ends up in his inventory or in his hands. If you have an inventory system the item will be in the inventory, it can be any entity specific to your server like weapons or ammo for example.
I imagine this script to be perfect for plant collection. It's up to you to imagine what you could do with it.
