func_movelinear is a brush entity available in all Source games.

Entity description

It moves linearly along a given distance, in a given direction. Unlike a func_door, it can be positioned anywhere along its axis of movement.

Note:The SetPosition input and Start Position keyvalue do not perform any bounds checking, so values <0 and >1 can be used. Negative values will move in the opposite direction to the movement direction, and values greater than 1 will move it in multiples of the set Move Distance. Moving past the opened/closed position does not trigger the OnFullyOpen/Closed outputs.

Warning: There are bugs with parenting this entity to another func_movelinear. Func_door can be used as a work around. A fix is located under CFuncMoveLinear_ParentingFix

Keyvalues

Move Direction (Pitch Yaw Roll) <angle>
The direction the brushes will move, when told to.
Start Position <float>
Position of brush when spawned, where 0 is the starting position and 1 is the starting position + (move direction * move distance).
Speed <integer>
The speed that the brush moves, in inches per second.
Move Distance <float>
The distance from the starting point that the brush should move, in inches.
Block Damage <float>
The amount of damage to do to any entity that blocks the brushes, per frame.
Sound played when the brush starts moving. <sound>
The sound to play when the brush starts moving.
Sound played when the brush stops moving. <sound>
The sound to play when the brush stops moving.

Targetname:

Name <string>
The targetname that other entities refer to this entity by.
Entity Scripts <scriptlist> (New with Left 4 Dead 2)
Space delimited list of VScript files (without file extension) that are executed after all entities have spawned. The scripts are all executed in the same script scope, later ones overwriting any identical variables and functions.
Script think function <string> (New with Left 4 Dead 2)
Name of a function in this entity's script which will be called automatically every 100 milliseconds (ten times a second) for the duration of the script. It can be used to create timers or to simulate autonomous behavior. The return value (if present) will set the time until the next call.
Note:Try to avoid expensive operations in this function, as it may cause performance problems.

Parentname:

Parent (parentname) <targetname>
Specifies a movement parent. An entity will maintain its initial offset from its parent. An attachment point can be added to the end of the name, separated by a comma.

Origin:

Origin (X Y Z) <origin>
The position of this entity's center in the world. Rotating entities typically rotate around their origin.

RenderFields:

Render Mode (rendermode) <choices>
Set a non-standard rendering mode on this entity.
Render FX / Transparency (0 - 255) (renderamt) <integer>
Transparency amount, requires a Render Mode other than Normal. 0 is invisible, 255 is fully visible.
Render Color (R G B) (rendercolor) <color255>
Color tint.
Disable Receiving Shadows (disablereceiveshadows) <boolean>
Prevent the entity from receiving shadows on itself.

RenderFXChoices:

Render FX (renderfx) <choices>
Preset pattern of appearance effects.
To do: 18-21, 25

Flags

  • 8 : Not Solid

Inputs

Open
Move the brush to the end position (starting position + (move direction * move distance)).
Close
Move the brush to the starting position.
SetPosition  <string>
Move the brush to a specific position, where 0 is the starting position and 1 is the starting position + (move direction * move distance).
SetSpeed  <float>
Set the speed and update immediately.

Targetname:

Kill
Removes this entity and any entities parented to it from the world.
KillHierarchy
Functions the same as Kill, although this entity and any entities parented to it are killed on the same frame, being marginally faster than Kill.
AddOutput  <string>
Evaluates a keyvalue/output on this entity. It can be potentially very dangerous, use with care.
Format: <key> <value>
Format: <output name> <targetname>:<inputname>:<parameter>:<delay>:<max times to fire, -1 means infinite>
FireUser1 to FireUser4
Fire the OnUser outputs; see User Inputs and Outputs.
Use  !FGD
Same as a player invoking +use; may not do anything. Can also be invoked by creating an output that does not specify an input.
This input is not included in Valve's FGDs.
RunScriptFile  <script> (New with Left 4 Dead 2)
Execute a VScript file from disk, without file extension. The script contents are merged with the script scope of the receiving entity.
RunScriptCode  <string> (New with Left 4 Dead 2)
Execute a string of VScript source code in the scope of the entity receiving the input. String quotation may be needed when fired via console.
Bug: In <Left 4 Dead 2>, the code is executed in the script scope of the entity that fires the output, not the one receiving the input.
Warning: Never try to pass string parameters to a script function with this input. It will corrupt the VMF structure because of the nested quotation marks, which then must be removed manually with a text editor.
CallScriptFunction  <string> (New with Left 4 Dead 2) !FGD
Execute a VScript function in the scope of the receiving entity.
SetLocalOrigin  <coordinates> (New with Alien Swarm) !FGD
Send this entity to a spot in the map. If the entity is parented to something, it will be offset from the parent by this amount.
SetLocalAngles  <angles> (New with Alien Swarm) !FGD
Set this entity's angles.

Parentname:

SetParent  <string>
Move with this entity. See Entity Hierarchy (parenting).
SetParentAttachment  <string>
Change this entity to attach to a specific attachment point on its parent. The entity will teleport so that the position of its root bone matches that of the attachment. Entities must be parented before being sent this input.
SetParentAttachmentMaintainOffset  <string>
As above, but without teleporting. The entity retains its position relative to the attachment at the time of the input being received.
ClearParent
Removes this entity from the the movement hierarchy, leaving it free to move independently.

RenderFields:

Alpha  <integer>
Sets the entity's transparency to a number from 0 (invisible) to 255 (fully visible). Requires the entity to have its Render Mode (rendermode) set to a number other than 0.
Color  <color255>
Sets an RGB color for the entity.

Outputs

OnFullyOpen
Fired when the brush reaches the end position (starting position + (move direction * move distance)).
OnFullyClosed
Fired when the brush reaches the starting position.

Targetname:

OnUser1 to OnUser4
These Outputs each fire in response to the firing of the like-numbered FireUser1 to FireUser4 Input; see User Inputs and Outputs.
OnKilled  (Only in the Left 4 Dead series)
This Output fires when the entity is killed and removed from the game.
