NPC Hull

From Valve Developer Community
Jump to: navigation, search

An NPC Hull roughly defines the space taken up by NPCs and players. They mainly affect what spaces something can move through.

This is a list of the NPC Hull types used for nodegraph calculations. They are (currently) listed in the sequence followed by the ai_next_hull command (see ai_show_connect).

Warning:I have included some empirical min pathway data, however it seems inconsistent with cpp 'specifications'... see talk page. --Beeswax
Note:info_node and info_node_link have spawnflags corresponding to each NPC Hull type; eg 2 : "Force small_centered permission" : 0 and 2 : "Force small_centered connect" : 0 respectively.
Note:The player's Hull and Viewpoint are defined by CViewVectors g_DefaultViewVectors in gamerules.cpp
