    PROPOSAL

    Integrate Flood with the clientside Workshop addon GMOD Legs 3 (enables viewing of 3rd-person legs).


    CONSIDERATIONS

    (1) Incorporate a settings option that would allow players to toggle client view [ON] or [OFF].

    (2) Switched to [OFF] by default, just to be safe. Some people use GMOD Legs 3 temporarily while others stay away from it.


    OUTCOMES


    (1) Would help players have a better sense of how close they are to ledges (and possibly falling off of them).

    (2) Would help promote addon consistency across our servers–Jailbreak already has GMOD Legs 3 implemented.

    This is a good suggestion, but sometimes it might be disorienting when people are using props with missing textures (e.g. snowman bodies).

    Indeed. That's where the idea of allowing players the option to turn it off manually comes in handy.

    Good way around it, yeah. What would the default setting be when someone first joins the server? On or off?

    Good question. We don't want to risk turning away people that either don't like GMOD Legs 3 enabled for extended time periods or completely altogether. It'd probably be best to have it switched off by default. The feature would be available for use at any time (just like CTP (Custom Third Person) viewing mode).

    I'll add that to the first post.

    This is a good idea I have seen it on other Gmod servers.
    it would be very useful on flood half the time you don't know where you're standing.

    Would be great! Now you can actually see if you're standing on your boat or not, not perfectly, but see a lot better.
