    Me and ary came up with this one. So basically, during the event the props would be sized to match a prop. For example, a paper towel could be the size of a Vending Machine. How you could do this is by randomly selecting a prop. Then having that prop retain its size, while all the props that are smaller than it have a multiplier (ex 1.3x) to make it bigger. And the props that are bigger would have a multiplier to make it smaller (ex 0.6x). Let me know what you think!

    It's (obviously) a year-old response, but to set the record straight:
    • Love the idea! I came up with a similar approach a few years ago, albeit applied to all props indiscriminately.
    • While in theory it'd work nicely for a new round type, with current restrictions (?) in the gamemode's lua and database (?), we'd have to create re-scaled versions of every prop in circulation. File size would be doubled or nearly tripled if small and large versions were added. In addition, such allocations for one facet in the gamemode would not be efficient with space. There'd probably be little use of the re-scaled props beyond the round event.

    Yeah for the second bullet alone I don’t think it’d be worth it. Sounds like a lot of fun in theory though, especially if sizes could have been randomized.
