<Half-Life 2> item_healthvial is a point entity available in the Half-Life 2 series.

Entity description

This item restores a smaller amount of health points for players on pickup. This amount is defined by the sk_healthvial value - 10 by default.

Dedicated Console Variables

sk_healthvial <int>
Amount of health restored (Default: 10). (This amount is unaffected by difficulty settings.)

Keyvalues

  • Item:

NewFade:

; Start Fade Dist/Pixels <float>
Distance at which the prop starts to fade (<0 = use fademaxdist). If 'Screen Space Fade' is selected, this represents the number of pixels wide covered by the prop when it starts to fade.
End Fade Dist/Pixels <float>
Maximum distance at which the prop is visible (0 = don't fade out). If 'Screen Space Fade' is selected, this represents the *minimum* number of pixels wide covered by the prop when it fades.
Fade Scale <float>
If you specify a fade in the worldspawn, or if the engine is running under dx7, then the engine will forcibly fade out props even if fademindist/fademaxdist isn't specified. This scale factor gives you some control over the fade. Using 0 here turns off the forcible fades.

Shadow:

Disable shadows <boolean>
Prevent the entity from creating cheap render-to-texture shadows. Does not affect shadow mapping.
Disable ShadowDepth <boolean> (New with Portal 2)
Used to disable rendering into shadow depth (for projected textures) for this entity.
Projected Texture Cache <choices> (New with Portal 2)
Used to hint projected texture system whether it is sufficient to cache shadow volume of this entity or to force render it every frame instead.
  • 0 : Default
  • 1 : No cache - render every frame
  • 2 : Cache it - render only once
Disable flashlight <boolean> (New with Portal 2)
Used to disable projected texture lighting and shadows on this entity.

Angles:

Pitch Yaw Roll (Y Z X) <angle>
This entity's orientation in the world. Pitch is rotation around the Y axis, yaw is the rotation around the Z axis, roll is the rotation around the X axis.

Targetname:

Name <string>
The targetname that other entities refer to this entity by.
Entity Scripts <scriptlist> (New with Left 4 Dead 2)
Space delimited list of VScript files (without file extension) that are executed after all entities have spawned. The scripts are all executed in the same script scope, later ones overwriting any identical variables and functions.
Script think function <string> (New with Left 4 Dead 2)
Name of a function in this entity's script which will be called automatically every 100 milliseconds (ten times a second) for the duration of the script. It can be used to create timers or to simulate autonomous behavior. The return value (if present) will set the time until the next call.
Note:Try to avoid expensive operations in this function, as it may cause performance problems.

Inputs

  • Targetname:

Kill
Removes this entity from the world.
KillHierarchy
Removes this entity and all its children from the world.
AddOutput  <string>
Evaluates a keyvalue/output on this entity. It can be potentially very dangerous, use with care.
Format: <key> <value>
Format: <output name> <targetname>:<inputname>:<parameter>:<delay>:<max times to fire, -1 means infinite>
FireUser1 to FireUser4
Fire the OnUser outputs; see User Inputs and Outputs.
Use  !FGD
Same as a player invoking +use; may not do anything. Can also be invoked by creating an output that does not specify an input.
This input is not included in Valve's FGDs.
RunScriptFile  <script> (New with Left 4 Dead 2)
Execute a VScript file from disk, without file extension. The script contents are merged with the script scope of the receiving entity.
RunScriptCode  <string> (New with Left 4 Dead 2)
Execute a string of VScript source code in the scope of the entity receiving the input. String quotation may be needed when fired via console.
Bug:
In <Left 4 Dead 2>, the code is executed in the script scope of the entity that fires the output, not the one receiving the input.
Warning:Never try to pass string parameters to a script function with this input. It will corrupt the VMF structure because of the nested quotation marks, which then must be removed manually with a text editor.
CallScriptFunction  <string> (New with Left 4 Dead 2)
Execute a VScript function in the scope of the receiving entity.
Note:This input is missing from some games FGD files.
SetLocalOrigin  <origin> (New with Alien Swarm)
Set this entity's origin in the map.
Note:This input is missing from some games FGD files.
SetLocalAngles  <angles> (New with Alien Swarm)
Set this entity's angles in the map.
Note:This input is missing from some games FGD files.

Outputs

OnUser1 to OnUser4
These Outputs each fire in response to the firing of the like-numbered FireUser1 to FireUser4 Input; see User Inputs and Outputs.
OnKilled  

(New with Left 4 Dead)

This Output fires when the entity is killed and removed from the game.


OnPlayerTouch
Fires when the player touches this object (activator is the player).
OnCacheInteraction
