CProjectedDecal defined in world.cpp

info_projecteddecal is a point entity available in all Source Source games. It projects a dynamic decal (same type of decal as bullet holes, blood splatter etc.) onto anything capable of receiving one. If it has no target name then the decal will be applied as soon as the map loads; otherwise it will wait for the Activate input.

Note.pngNote:This is a preserved entity in Counter-Strike: SourceHalf-Life 2: DeathmatchPortalLeft 4 DeadLeft 4 Dead 2Portal 2Counter-Strike: Global Offensive.
  • On a new round entities with this classname will intentionally not reset. You can use logic_auto to emulate resetting it.
  • Killing it removes it forever, as it is not respawned on a new round.
  • It cannot be spawned with a point_template.
  • Parenting this with non preserved entities may have undesirable effects.
Icon-Bug.pngBug:This entity marked as preserved is most likely a mistake because decals it places are dynamic which don't stay between round restarts making the entity effectively usable only by vscript
