- Particle System Name
- The name of the particle system to spawn. NOT the name of a PCF file!
- Start Active?
- Whether the particle system should begin as soon as the entity spawns.
- Flag as Weather?
<boolean>(New with Source 2009)
- Is this particle system going to be used as a weather effect? If so the particle system will not be rendered if the user has disabled weather effects.
- Control Point 1 to Control Point 63
- Parents a control point to the given entity's origin. If any value is left blank all those following it will be ignored. Tip:Control point 1 is the origin of the info_particle_system itself.Note:Because the control point is configured on the client, the entity you specify must exist there. This means that most invisible entities (info_target in particular) will not work. Your best bet is an info_particle_system, e.g. itself.
- Control Point 1's Parent to Control Point 7's Parent
- The control point to act as a parent to this one.
- Pitch Yaw Roll (Y Z X) (angles)
- This entity's orientation in the world. Pitch is rotation around the Y axis, yaw is the rotation around the Z axis, roll is the rotation around the X axis.
- Entity Scripts
- 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
- 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.
- Tell the particle system to start/stop emitting. Note:To forcibly restart an effect, you must fire
Starthas no effect if the server thinks the system is already running.
DestroyImmediately(New with Portal 2)
- Particle System disappears immediately instead of fading out
StopPlayEndCap(New with Portal 2)
- Seems to be the same as stop
- Move with this entity. See Entity Hierarchy (parenting).
- 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.
- As above, but without teleporting. The entity retains its position relative to the attachment at the time of the input being received.
- Removes this entity from the the movement hierarchy, leaving it free to move independently.
- Removes this entity from the world.
- Removes this entity and its children from the world. Note:Entities already remove orphaned children upon being removed, but this input removes all children on the same frame, being marginally faster than
- Adds a keyvalue/output to this entity. It can be potentially very dangerous, use with care.
<output name> <targetname>:<inputname>:<parameter>:<delay>:<max times to fire, -1 means infinite>
- Fire the
OnUseroutputs; see User Inputs and Outputs.
- Same as a player invoking +use; may not do anything depending on the entity. Can also be invoked by firing an output that does not specify an input.
- Execute a VScript file from disk, without file extension. The script contents are merged with the script scope of the receiving entity.
- 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 , 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.
- Execute a VScript function in the scope of the receiving entity.
- 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.
- Set this entity's angles.
- These outputs each fire in response to the firing of the like-numbered
FireUser4Input; see User Inputs and Outputs.
- This output fires when the entity is killed and removed from the game.
