    Lightbulb [E2] Instant Chassis - Steering and Suspension

    An E2 that allows users of any skill level to have an instant steering and suspension system.

    You can place this on effectively any prop

    Customise the wheel size, positions etc.

    Wire(link) an adv pod controller to it and you have an instant car! WASD controls, Space for handbrake.





    1. This E2 will work on most props, but I recommend flat squares or cubes such as:
    * models/props_phx/construct/metal_plate1.mdl
    * models/hunter/plates/plate1x1.mdl
    * models/props_c17/FurnitureShelf001b.mdl

    2. Make sure any other constrained props (like a car body) all have a mass of '1' or less.
    If you need some to be heavier, do not make them weigh over 100.
    Try to balance any larger (10 ~ 100) weights equally over the chassis.

    3. I also recommend parenting all props and using the 'Main' prop,
    (The one the chip is placed on) as the Parent.
    Parenting makes contraptions more stable and reduces lag.

    4. For advanced users: It is also best to leave some props unparented to
    create a collision box around the vehicle, such as bumpers.

    Download:
    Cipher_Ultra's Instant Chassis.zip Download!

    Contraptions that have used this code:

    M12 Warthog - Halo Series

    Jelknab's High Speed Rally Car


    If you use any of this code for a contraption that you release, please credit me.

    I've been wishing you'd release this. Thankyou, I'll try it out now

    EDIT: Fantastic. The best thing ever released, imo.

    I can make you hate me with five words:
    "I made Balls of Steel".

    After Balls of Steel, OFC.


    OP: why not put the code here on wiremod, rather than gmod.org? Do the extra downloads on gmod.org give you bigger e-pen?

    (Nothing against gmod.org, I just hate loging in each time)

    Thank you a lot, Cipher! <3 I might go and learn from it!
    To 3:
    Do not parent to the E2 chip, if you want the parent to work as customizable as possible, use a separate "add-gate".

    To Unsmart: If you want to support this chip...and awesome car builders, put the prop limit up to 300!!!!

    You don't parent to any gate. You parent to the plate you weld the e2 to.
