Entity Description

This entity is a duplicate and functions the same as a prop_physics_override. The only difference with the db_prop_sphere_override is it uses a coded collision model, a perfectly round sphere (and is cheaper then a regular prop_physics). Use this entity with models such as marbles, rocks, buolders, etc. It will roll perfectly with no rockiness (that you'd usually get with a prop_physics). It has no use as a standard prop physics, only use for something round shaped that you want to roll smooth & perfectly.

It also adds an extra key value (Radius) for overriding the radius of the collision model (regular db_prop_sphere will use the squared radius of the model you're using). As most of Dreamball's physics props require the use of prop_physics_override to be used (instead of prop_physics you'll most likely need to use this entity instead of db_prop_sphere.

  • This entity uses all the same functions as prop_physics_override. See that entity for a list of it's properties you can use.


  • Radius
Overrides the sphere-radius (collision). A negative value means using the radius calculated from the model. Using a higher value, i.e. 30 units will make the model's collision sphere be 30 units, but if the model was only 20 units big then you'll have a floating model with 10 units extra space. Only override it if you really need to.
