The first script in the Eris collection, Eris F4 menu is a step towards bolder and better F4 menus in Garry's Mod. With a design based around circles and geometry, Eris F4 is very pleasing to the eye and has everything you and your players would need in an F4 menu, and a lot more to boot.

Installation

Drop the addon folder into your garrysmod/addons folder and restart your server if it was already running. That's literally all there is to it.

Creating Themes

Copy and paste a file in lua/eris/themes and rename it to something (preferrably your theme's name). Open it, change the title (first argument of Eris:AddTheme()) to the name of your theme, then proceed to change the colors. Additionally, add a third argument to restrict your theme to specific ULX ranks, like so:

This example will restrict this theme to superadmin and vip ULX ranks only.

Configuration

Open up lua/eris/config.lua. All configuration is done there.
Some (not all) settings you can change:

  • Unify job backgrounds (have the backgrounds for each job be a certain color instead of job's color)
  • Center preloader (have the website preloader centered in the f4, or the containing panel
  • Save the last tab you were on
  • Model enabled, title bar enabled, title close button enabled
  • Amount of avatars on each row of online staff in the Dashboard
  • Let people change their names by clicking on their name in the top left of the F4
  • Give the pie charts a radial glow in the center
  • Ranks of staff (for online staff of course)
  • Default theme
  • Enable/disable clients picking themes
  • Text to display as the server at the bottom (picks hostname by default)
  • Have the tabs square instead of triangular

Planned Features

Popup modal when you right click a job showing description and model selectors, configurable on/off if you don't like the description in the tooltip (long descriptions, etc) or rightclicking job models to swap them.

Common Issues

If the pie charts or other circles are pixelated, it is due to your antialiasing settings, not the script. View these comparisons:

This, unfortunately, cannot be fixed.
