This is a short tutorial on how to make a chassis with fully working suspension and steering in GMod 13.

IS YOUR E2 GIVING YOU ERRORS?
The error which revolves around propcore is very easy to fix. When I made this tutorial, propcore was automatically enabled on startup - it isn't anymore, so you'll have to do it yourself!
The way you do it is by opening the console in GMod, then first entering: wire_expression2_extension_enable propcore
and then afterwards, this: wire_expression2_reload
This enables propcore and reloads Wiremod so that it's enabled. You can add the above commands to your autoexec.cfg if you don't want to keep doing this on every GMod start up. This applies to servers as well, but then it needs to be added to the other start up commands.

IS YOUR E2 NOT CHANGING MODEL?
If the E2 does not change to the model in the video, go into the Garry's Mod console and type in "wire_expression2_model models/sprops/rectangles/size_3/rect_24x24x3.mdl" without the ".

A duplication of the vehicle in the video, if you want something to compare to:

Place it in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\NAME\garrysmod\garrysmod\data\advdupe2
OR
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\garrysmod\garrysmod\data\advdupe2
Location depends on if your GMod is on steampipe or not. The folder will only exist in one of those two locations, so go check it there.



BALLSOCKET SETTINGS:
Force limit: 0
Torque limit: 0
X Minimum: -180
X Maximum: 180
Y Minimum: -0.10
Y Maximum: 0.10
Z Minimum: -0.10
Z Maximum: 0.10
X Friction: 0
Y Friction: 0
Z Friction: 0
Free movement: ON
No-collide entities: ON
NOTE: I see the video says stuff like -0.10000000 but all the 0's at the end of 0.10 don't actually make a difference. Doing 0.10 instead of 0.1000000 is going to work just the same.

This is a tutorial for constructing a vehicle in GMod, however primarily by suspension and steering. It's sort of like an updated one of MrWhite for Garry's Mod 13.
It's made to be simple and for beginners, while still keeping it to a professional level of build-quality.

*DISCLAIMER:
This is not a showcase of how I build. This is a simplified method of building a chassis.
