    I don't usually post on Nebulous but I think what I'm about to talk about will be well received so here goes. I've been working on a website for the past couple of years called Clockwork Constructors. It's a web application that lets you fill in basic info then spits out a download link for Clockwork file(s) in Lua or as applicable. For example you can enter info for an item such as its name, description, weight, cost, etc. and then it'll take that data, format it properly in a Clockwork item file and then voila, you've got your very own item file just by entering some basic info and pushing a couple buttons.

    I figured I'd post about my website in this section because anyone can use the website to make stuff for Nebulous' HL2RP server.

    You can check out the website here: https://ClockworkConstructors.com/

    Right now there's 4 constructors available: Blueprint, Faction, Item, and Plugin. In the future there'll also be support for commands, libraries, and maybe even classes. There's also the "Quick Construction" menu where you can download a basic version of an item, plugin, etc.

    Updates are posted to the Cloud Sixteen forum thread I made awhile back (you can also find more details and pictures there): http://forums.cloudsixteen.com/thre...wn-items-factions-and-plugins-released.29756/

    If there's any developers for Clockwork here at Nebulous I'm sure they'll find this website very useful. Also if anyone has any feedback, suggestions, comments, etc. then please go ahead and post them. I'm always open to new ideas and ways to improve my website!

    If I'm not allowed to post this kind of stuff here then any mods/admins feel free to let me know.

    fork and knife =/= ammo
    scissors =/= weapon
    water bottle =/= grenade
    glasses =/= clothes

    but apart from that insignificant thing, good job.

    Hmm, that may work actually. I'll consider it, thanks for the suggestion!

    Then you should check out the Quick Construction, it lets your download templates for items, blueprints, etc. :grinning:

    What are you changing to if I may ask? NutScript like cloudperson mentioned?

    Or was he just kidding around?

    Welp, time to pack it in. It was a good run with this programming stuff but I guess my career is over. :stuck_out_tongue:

    Joking aside, there's other communities/developers using Clockwork Constructors right now. If you check out the Site Statistics menu you can see the kind of usage it gets, although the numbers there don't account for how much it was used before February 26th, 2018. Now let me show you my statistics:

    Can you guess which point on the graph is for when I posted about the website here? Lol.

    was joking, i don't think we'd change to nutscript as it's mainly used for semi-serious servers
    and i dont think the community would like it that much :shrug:
