CRagdollMagnet defined in CRagdollMagnet.cpp

phys_ragdollmagnet is a point entity available in all Source Source games. It acts like a magnet for ragdolls. Useful for crafting exaggerated ragdoll behavior (i.e. guys falling over rails on death). If the Bar Magnet spawnflag is set, the magnet works like it was a cylindrical magnet i.e. it attracts ragdolls to the nearest point on a line.



Name (targetname) <string>
The targetname that other entities refer to this entity by.
Bar Magnet Axis (axis) <vector>
Axis of the bar magnet, if the spawnflag is active.
Effective Radius (radius) <float>
Radius in which ragdolls are affected around this entity's origin.
Force (force) <float>
Magnetic force to apply to ragdolls within the radius. Expressed as kilograms per inch per second. So a force of 1000 will add 10 inches/second to a 100kg man. It will add 100 inches per second to a 10kg headcrab.
Tip.pngTip:Using a negative value will propel ragdolls away from the magnet.
Entity to affect (target) <string>
If specified, the phys_ragdollmagnet will only affect the target entity.


Start Disabled (StartDisabled) <boolean>
Stay dormant until activated (with theEnableinput).
