SetSpeed <float>
Set the speed of the train, as a ratio of max speed [0, 1]
SetSpeedDir <float>
Set the speed of the train, as a ratio of max speed. Negative values reverse the direction [-1, 1]
SetSpeedReal <float>
Set the speed of the train. Must be a positive value from 0 to max speed.
SetSpeedDirAccel <float>
Accel/Decel to the specified speed, as a ratio of max speed. Negative values reverse the direction [-1, 1]
SetSpeedForwardModifier <float>
Applies the given modifier to all forward speeds. [0, 1]]
TeleportToPathTrack <targetname>
Teleport the train to the designated path track.
Stop the train.
Start the train moving forward.
Start the train moving backward.
Bug.png Bug: If the train's corresponding path_tracks do not have "New Train Speed" set to a nonzero number, StartBackward will exhibit undesired behavior including the train freezing or moving in the wrong direction. This bug can be a pain if the train needs to ride through the path_track again at a different speed. This can be fixed by firing an "addOutput speed '#'" input at the path_track in question.
Resume the train moving in the current direction after it was stopped via the Stop or Toggle input.
Reverse the direction of the train.
Toggle the train between start and stop.


Removes this entity from the world.
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.


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.
Removes this entity from the the movement hierarchy, leaving it free to move independently.


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.


Turn dynamic shadows off for this entity.
Turn dynamic shadows on for this entity.
DisableReceivingFlashlight  (in all games since [Portal 2])
This object will not receive light or shadows from projected textures.
EnableReceivingFlashlight  (in all games since [Portal 2])
This object may receive light or shadows from projected textures.
