    There's a lot of props that are admin only for some reason, and I'm not sure why.

    For example:

    models/props_phx/misc/fender.mdl (Guitar prop)

    models/props_phx/misc/bunker01.mdl (Small Bunker Prop)

    Players can spawn giant trucks, buildings, etc, but they can't spawn a bunch of smaller items like said guitar prop. I'm not sure why this is, maybe they're admin-only by default and nobody bothered changing it?

    Also:
    Players can't spawn any ragdolls, I'd suggest a max of like 2 per player.

    KROT resources were disabled as well, they had a lot of neat smaller props, and I'd suggest they are put back on the server and added as a required download to the TNB packs.

    Thanks!

    Ragdolls I would say no to. Far as I remember, those can be the most straining on any server due to their 'freedom' and what I remember back in Legacy, donators were granted extra prop limits and 2 ragdolls, but thats not really relevant with this.

    I was curious about the bunker phx prop though

    I thought donating granted you Ragdoll perks.

    If you really need any of these things 90% of the time there's an admin on that can spawn you what you need within reason.

    I'm pretty sure you're joking but I'd honestly donate so I could have access to these props. xD

    Back in HL2 there was a donation panel that could accomplish this exactly. We simply don't have it for TRP since /a works.

    That's because there's just a stark contrast with TRP and HL2 in which /a actually works.

    As far as I know though in HL2 people couldn't spawn ragdolls either, unless I'm forgetting something. Not even with ATT.

    Too many ragdolls had the tendency to fuck with performance so it’s understandable as to why it was limited to few trusted people.

    I think it's a good idea that ragdolls aren't spawnable by anyone so that there can be a bit of control over how many messages in /a say, "hey can i loot this dead guy for all his gear and a gun?"

    Giving ragdoll privileges out with event flags seems like a good option

    Idk bout the rest of the props though
