EF_NODRAW prevents any data about an entity from being transmitted to the client, without affecting it on the server. In other words, it makes the entity disappear from the player's view without deleting it.

It is defined as 0x020, or 32.


To use this effect, turn off SmartEdit mode and add the following keyvalue pair to the entity: effects 32.

Note:If it is desired to use this with other effects, you should add the integer value of each effect to the value.

Remember that you can set the effects value during runtime using an entity's AddOutput input with the input value effects x (x being any summation of effects flags to enable).

Warning: Using the AddOutput functionality for this, the new value may interfere with an entity's simulation functionality.
