<Synergy Logo> info_vehicle_spawn is a point entity available in Synergy. It spawns a vehicle for each player.To do: Make Template:Synergy point

Bug: Multiple instances of this entity may causes crashes under Linux. [confirm]

Entity Description

This entity spawns vehicles entities at its origin. Using an 'ownership' method, players will 'own' the first vehicle they enter, thus preventing other players from using it if the player were to exit it later on. Unoccupied vehicles will appear translucent to players who do not 'own' it.

Keyvalues

StartEnabled <choices>
Initial state of the vehicle spawn.
VehicleType <choices>
Type of vehicle this spawn will use.
0 : Jeep
1 : Airboat
2 : Jalopy
3 : MP
RespawnVehicle <choices>
Deletes the player's vehicle when they die, and respawns it at this entity's origin once the player respawns.
VehicleScript <string>
Vehicle Script File. (ex. scripts/vehicles/jeep_test.txt)
VehicleSize <integer>
Radius at which active vehicle must exit before spawning the next vehicle.

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.

Angles:

Pitch Yaw Roll (Y Z X) <angle>
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.

Inputs

Enable
Starts spawning new vehicles.
Disable
Stops spawning new vehicles.
MoveSpawn  <string> !FGD
Sets the origin and angles with the specified info_target

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.

Outputs

OnSpawnVehicle
Fired when a vehicle is spawned.

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.
