Workshop and Fonts!

After the Garry’s Mod APRIP Update and CAP Revision 490, the fonts are now included in the CAP CODE part of the Workshop files! Therefore you do NOT require to manually download and install the FONTS anymore. However this feature might stop functioning in the future and if this will happen, then we might re-enable the font-checker to make sure everything works as expected.

Sidenote: For some Linux Distro users the fonts via Workshop still does not work, so for those they still require to download and install them system-wide manually.
These fonts can be downloaded from:

Cap Rev 490 Update

Rev 490 changes:

* Removed check for font install on workshop, now fonts included in the cap code (workshop part).
Thanks to latest gmod update with fix for fonts not working on workshop addons.
NOTE: on linux fonts still can not work on some distributions, you need install it manually system-wide.

* Arthur mantle “font error” after latest gmod update, also fix for linux (osx may also work now but not tested).
* Stargate menu column width and glyph displaying fixes for linux (may also work for osx).
* Fix for server crash/incorrect input when use wire gate “TransferResource”, thanks to TheMerkyShadow.

Cap Rev 488 Update

Cap Rev 488 changes:

* Changed how e2 functions stargateAddressList/stargateAtlantisTPAddressList works due to latest changes in wiremod.
* Updated all cap e2 chips what used stargateAddressList for new syntax.
NOTE: this means all player chips what used stargateAddressList will no longer work without those changes!
* Now ragdoll created after death using zap weapon can be grabbed.

* Added temporary fix to shield and wraith harvester what turn off randomly after latest gmod update.
* Possible fix for expression advanced function stargateAtlantisTPAddressList (not tested).
* Fixed wraith harvester can suck planet atmosphere on spacebuild servers, and some other entities without physics.

Happy New Year!

From the whole CAP team we wish you a happy and lovely New 2016!

Enjoy with your friends or family this wonderful new year full of new experiences and interesting moments.

Best wishes,

The CAP Team.

Cap Workshop Update

Workshop version of CAP was updated to fix issue with cap workshop detection script, it not working correct and cap workshop users actually was initialized like git version. This not including any code changed to github version, because its just wrong addon name what i used when updating workshop addon.

Also important note:
Latest gmod update broke something and now with cap installed hl2 vehicles (and probably other) is unusable, this is Garry’s Mod issue and not CAP. It was already fixed on gmod dev branch, so we can’t do anything with this until new gmod update come (and we don’t know when).

The future and end of CAP!

The winning logo

First of all we need to thank everyone who participated in our little design contest for a new logo of CAP, and with this we’d happily say that we really liked the logo created by Ivan of Spades with it’s simplicity yet quite powerful look and feel of the Stargate universe.


Created by Ivan Of Spades


However as we intended to switch the winning logo for the official logo we’d sadly have to announce the following news.


The future of CAP

After many years where lots of talented people came together to make this addon possible, where others supported the addon in their own way by donating and assisting with the forums we sadly need to announce that of this day the Carter Addon Pack’s team will be disbanded.

Alex our main coder and pretty much the life extender of CAP: who joined after the main team’s coders had left, made amazing updates and improvements to the addon. Announces that he’s in a very difficult situation and doesn’t finds the time to work on any updates in the future anymore.

With this happening we also made the following decision for the future of CAP and a general Stargate addon for Garry’s Mod that our content may of today be remixed, transformed or build upon to make adaptations of CAP or make a complete new Stargate Addon that builds upon our addon. The whole addon will as of today be licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.


You are free to:

Share — copy and redistribute the material in any medium or format
Adapt — remix, transform, and build upon the material

NonCommercial — You may not use the material for commercial purposes.

ShareAlike — If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your contributions under the same license as the original.



Even for the current remaining people in the team it is still quite hard to swallow this news, as it was still a very long road to get where we are today. But real world events and other things eventually takes more priority which makes a hobby creation like this impossible to maintain forever.

While we will probably stay active on the forums, and update from time to time, the actual development will be postponed until further notice.

So for everyone and we really mean everyone who played, supported and enjoyed CAP all these years we really need to Thank You! As without you, we would never have gotten this far!

Thank you for reading and hopefully may CAP live on in a future Addon!
