Entity Description

A constraint that constrains an entity along a line segment.

Keyvalues

<vecline> Can be set with the Hammer helper tool.
  • slidefriction
<float> Resistance/friction in the constraint
  • SystemLoadScale
<float> Scale of the mass load connected to this constraint (1=just the objects directly connected)

Flags

  • 1: No Collision until break
  • 4: Start inactive
  • 8: Change mass to keep stable attachment to world
  • 16: Do not connect entities until turned on
  • 2 : Limit Endpoints
  • Template:Fl TwoObjectPhysics2

Inputs

Break
Force the constraint to break.
TurnOn
Enable the constraint; do this if the constrained objects don't exist when it spawns. Note that broken constraints cannot be turned back on as they have been deleted.
TurnOff
Disable the constraint.

Targetname:

Kill
Removes this entity from the world.
KillHierarchy
Removes this entity and its children from the world.
Note.png Note: Entities already remove orphaned children upon being removed, but this input removes all children on the same frame, being marginally faster than Kill.
AddOutput <string>
Adds a keyvalue/output to this entity. It can be potentially very dangerous, use with care.
KV Format: <key> <value>
I/O 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 depending on the entity. Can also be invoked by firing an output that does not specify an input.
RunScriptFile <script> (in all games since 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> (in all games since 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.png 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.png 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> (in all games since Left 4 Dead 2) !FGD
Execute a VScript function in the scope of the receiving entity.
SetLocalOrigin <coordinates> (in all games since 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> (in all games since Alien Swarm) !FGD
Set this entity's angles.
  • SetVelocity <float>
Set linear velocity along the constraint

Outputs

OnBreak
Fired when the constraint breaks.

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 Left 4 Dead Left 4 Dead 2)
This output fires when the entity is killed and removed from the game.
