'Angle' input-type

Is this format proper?

... angles <angles>

Shouldn't it be:

angles <array>

OR

angles <vector>


  • "angles", I thought, is the one that should point to the angles page...like targetname does here:
Name targetname <string>
  • "<angle>" on the other hand, is the input... is there such thing as an 'angle' input-type? Is it supposed to somehow signify that it's not just a vector/array etc. I'm lost. Angles in source/hammer and their implementation is confusing to me.--TheFixer333 02:16, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Y-Axis Inversion

A note should probably be included in the description...because the transform tool rotates by an inverted value on the Y axis. Presumably, this was to prevent Y from rotating the opposite direction in the 'XZ' viewport when using the transform tool. Would it be proper to note that the Y value of 'angles' is inverted in the transform tool?--TheFixer333 00:15, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
