📘 Description of Gmod Lockpicking System Addon
Gmod Lockpicking System is an addon for Garry's Mod that offers an advanced and interactive lockpicking system, making it one of the best on the market. It adds an extra layer of gameplay to your server by allowing players to pick locks without the need to spawn additional entities on the map to make it work. This ensures optimal server resource usage and a smooth experience without the burden of physics or network overhead.
The integrated administration system in Lockpicking System provides great flexibility in configuring locks on the server map. You can set the lockpicking difficulty, the number of pins to lift, and even the visual style of the lock during the animation. You have the option to manually set static locks that remain unchanged after each server restart or let the system randomly generate new locks on each restart, adding an element of surprise and challenge for players.
The script also includes an independent leveling system, allowing players to start at level 1 in lockpicking and progress by gaining experience through practice. Players can accumulate experience points by successfully picking locks, and even if they fail, they will gain some experience. This lockpicking skill system is separate from any other leveling system present on the server.
Lockpicking itself is presented as an interactive mini-game. When the player attempts to pick something, they are notified of this possibility on the field. They can then use the swep lockpick kits and choose from the available lockpicks, type /lockpick in the chat, or use the inventory to start lockpicking. An animation is displayed, and the player must find the right angle to lift all the pins of the lock. Once all pins are lifted, they can unlock the lock, and once unlocked, they can lock it again in the same way.
The addon is highly compatible with other systems on the server, such as Gmod Loot Furniture Designer, Gmod Lock and Key System + Door Manager, and Gmod Keypads System. These systems can complement each other without creating conflicts or dependencies. None of these scripts are required to use Gmod Lockpicking System, and they are not considered DLC.
A dedicated administration panel allows you to manage all locked doors on the map from a single menu. Doors can be identified by a numerical identifier, and you can write personal notes to name and easily identify them.
Gmod Lockpicking System also offers great flexibility through its gameplay modules, allowing you to modify the system mechanics by enabling or disabling certain options from the admin menu.
The script allows you to install pickable locks on doors without the need to spawn additional entities on the map. This ensures server optimization by limiting the number of entities present to 0.
Finally, the addon offers 4 styles of spawnable lockpicking kits, each with its own characteristics. Players can drop them to trade with each other, fostering a cooperative environment.
Overall, Gmod Lockpicking System offers an immersive and interactive gaming experience, adding a new dimension to Garry's Mod without overloading the server with additional resources. With its various pickable locks, leveling system, and customization options, this addon significantly enriches the gaming experience for players and server administrators.
🎮 Lockpicking as an Interactive Mini-Game
On the field, the user will be informed if they attempt to pick something. (If you haven't disabled the closed lock notification option).
There are several methods to start lockpicking:
They can equip the swep lockpick kits and choose from their available lockpicks.
They can type /lockpick in the chat.
If you disable the swep, they can start lockpicking from the inventory.
An animation will be displayed, and they must find the right angle to lift all the pins. Once all pins are lifted, they can unlock the lock. An unlocked lock can be locked again in the same way.
✔️ Script Compatibility with Gmod Lockpicking System
The script works very well on its own but can complement other scripts:
Gmod Loot Furniture Designer: Starting from version 3.1 of the lootable furniture system, you can lock the furniture and make it pickable.
Gmod Lock and Key System + Door Manager: Starting from version 1.3 of the key system, the database will be shared with Gmod Lockpicking and Keypads System. You can add the option to unlock a locked key-operated lock by lockpicking.
Gmod Keypads System: You can add the option to unlock an electronic latch by lockpicking.
None of these scripts are necessary. They are not DLC.
💪 Player Lockpicking Skill Upgrade System
Players can upgrade their lockpicking level through practice. If they fail at lockpicking, they will gain a small amount of experience points. If they succeed, they will gain more. The lockpicking skill system is independent of other leveling systems.
⚙️ Admin Panel for Managing Map Doors
Manage all locked doors from a single menu. If the doors are displayed by a numerical identifier, you can still write a personal note to name the door. For example: Police Station Entrance Door.
🕹️ Gameplay Modules to Modify the System Mechanics
This script alone will bring gameplay mechanics to your gamemode and Gmod server. All gameplay mechanics can be modified from the script's administration menu. Click ON | OFF to enable or disable options. See the wiki and screenshots for more information.
🚪 Installing Pickable Locks on Doors without Map Spawning
In addition to being lightweight, the script does not require spawning entities or locks on your map. You add a lot of content at once without spawning anything on your server. The idea is to minimize the number of entities on your server for those concerned about optimization.
🪛 4 Spawnable Lockpicking Kit Entities
The lockpicks in your inventory are spawnable. This allows you to drop them to give them to another player if you prefer a cooperative environment and allow it.
Among the 4 styles of lockpicks, some will be more effective than others, so you can adjust their rarity accordingly.
🔒 Different Types of Pickable Locks
There are 9 styles of locks that you can divide into 3 categories: bronze, iron, and golden locks. This is purely aesthetic. You have the option to display less text on the interface. So if the player cannot see the level of the lock, you can still configure a style for a lock that corresponds to its level. I particularly like the fact that locks can have different styles.
