so basically this command is for those people only, who fail at handling normals on models? :P --Jike 02:32, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

so you would make grass with 4 triangles instead of just 2? --Pfannkuchen 14:15, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

Who said this was just for models. --DanielHands008 11:42, 26 January 2011 (UTC)

That a pretty dumb comment Jike. $nocull has plenty of uses. One of it's uses applies to surfaces that need to share the same face, or where an extra face would be a waste of polygons for both brush and model wise performance. It can also be used for foliage, and glass.--MrFourVideoCards 03:52, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Don't forget sprites!--1/4 Life 12:04, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
Not to mention the occasional effect; I used it for an excursion funnel a while back. --Omnicoder 12:50, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
That's really cool! Fairly impressive considering you did it without any additional programming.--1/4 Life 06:03, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
Excuse me Master Gear for the dumbness I have brought onto this page. I clearly yet have much to learn.

Then please explain to me, why use this command, if you can just apply the material onto the correct side of a face, if it simply is reversed. Excuse me for my "lack of knowledge"... :( --Jike 08:29, 24 February 2011 (UTC)
