Spaw NPC with playermodel?
« on: March 30, 2019, 09:38:50 AM »
I have a playermodel Miku and I want to spawn a npc_citizen with that skin using "ulx ent". Is it possible to do? Note: that's what the Q menu in sandbox does - spawns a Citizen with model of Miku when I press on Miku.

This is what such a command would look like:

ulx ent npc_citizen citizentype:4 | model:models/yourmodel.mdl

How to find the path to a model?
Start a new sandbox game, open the spawn menu, right-click the model and select "Copy to clipboard".

What do the flag and value pairs mean?
citizentype:4This sets the citizen's appearance to "unique", making it use a custom model. (source, citizentype values)
model:models/yourmodel.mdlPath to the custom model.

See Topic: Pro tips for more "ulx ent" examples.

Thank you! The part I was missing was citizentype:4. I tried to do it like type:unique and type:4.
