A dynamic connection between two navigation nodes. You specify the node IDs of the start and end nodes, and then you can use entity I/O to turn on and off the connection. This could be used to create or destroy a connection in the nodegraph because of some event in your map (a bridge being created/destroyed, etc).


Name targetname <target_source> The name that other entities refer to this entity by.

Start node ID StartNode <node_dest> The node ID of one end of the node connection.

End node ID EndNode <node_dest> The node ID of one end of the node connection.

Initial State initialstate <choices>

Allow Pass When Off AllowUse <string> Entity or class to allow passage even when node is off

spawnflags spawnflags <flags>


Kill Removes this entity from the world.

KillHierarchy Removes this entity and all its children from the world.

AddOutput <string> Adds an entity I/O connection to this entity. Format: <output name> <targetname>:<inputname>:<parameter>:<delay>:<max times to fire (-1 == infinite)>. Very dangerous, use with care.

FireUser1 Causes this entity's OnUser1 output to be fired.

FireUser2 Causes this entity's OnUser2 output to be fired.

FireUser3 Causes this entity's OnUser3 output to be fired.

FireUser4 Causes this entity's OnUser4 output to be fired.
