$contents

The QC command $contents specifies a list of the content_types to use for SolidMask tests during non-hitbox traces.

  • This feature was specifically added to allow us to make things like fences out of props instead of brush models.
  • See also $jointcontents.

Example

$contents "monster" "grate"
  • Available content_types are:
grate
Makes it a grate.
(Grates are not solid to bullets or line of sight, but solid to everything else.)
monster
Marks it as an NPC.
notsolid
Makes it not solid to anything.
solid
Makes it solid.
Solid is the default value, so this parameter is usually used only for the $jointcontents command, to make a solid child of a non-solid parent.
ladder
Makes it a ladder.
