<Alien Swarm> trigger_asw_synup_chatter is a brush entity available in Alien Swarm. It makes Crash or Vegas comment about 'SynUp Cola'.

Recommendations

  • For best effect place near an actual 'SynUp Cola' Prop(machine or can).
  • The Machine model is found via 'Swarmprops\furniture\sysnupmachinemesh.mdl'
  • The Can model is found via 'Swarmprops\miscdeco\synupcan.mdl'

Keyvalues

Start Disabled
Should the trigger start disabled?
Filter Name
Name of the filter defining what type of entities can activate this trigger. Mostly unecessary in Alien Swarm.

Flags

  • Marines And Aliens
  • Pushables
  • Physics Objects
  • Only Marines
  • Everything(not including physics debris)
  • Physics debris
  • Only NPCs in Vehicles (respects player ally flag)
  • Correctly account for object mass(trigger_push used to assume 100kg) and multiple component physobjs (car, blob...)

Outputs

Trigger:

OnEndTouch
Fired when an entity stops touching this trigger. Only entities that passed this trigger's filters will cause this output to fire. (activator is the exiting entity)
OnEndTouchAll
Fires when the last entity in the entity's area exits this trigger or when this entity is disabled. Only entities that passed this trigger's filters are considered. (activator is the last exiting entity)
OnTouching (New with Half-Life 2: Episode Two / Source 2007)
OnNotTouching (New with Half-Life 2: Episode Two / Source 2007)
Fired when the TouchTest input is called.

TriggerOnce:

OnStartTouch
Fired when an entity starts touching this trigger. The touching entity must pass this trigger's filters to cause this output to fire. (activator is the toucher)
OnTrigger
Fired whenever the trigger is activated. (activator is the activator)

Targetname:

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  (Only in the Left 4 Dead series)
This Output fires when the entity is killed and removed from the game.

Inputs

Trigger:

TouchTest (New with Half-Life 2: Episode Two / Source 2007)
Triggers either the OnTouching or OnNotTouching outputs for whether anything is touching this entity.
StartTouch (New with Half-Life 2: Episode Two / Source 2007) !FGD
Fires the OnStartTouch output.
EndTouch (New with Half-Life 2: Episode Two / Source 2007) !FGD
Fires the OnEndTouch output.
DisableAndEndTouch (Only in Team Fortress 2)
Disables this trigger and calls EndTouch on all currently-touching entities.

TriggerOnce:

Toggle
Toggles this trigger between enabled and disabled states.

EnableDisable:

Enable
Disable
Enable/disable this entity from performing its task. It might also disappear from view.

Parentname:

SetParent  <string>
Move with this entity. See Entity Hierarchy (parenting).
SetParentAttachment  <string>
Change this entity to attach to a specific attachment point on its parent. The entity will teleport so that the position of its root bone matches that of the attachment. Entities must be parented before being sent this input.
SetParentAttachmentMaintainOffset  <string>
As above, but without teleporting. The entity retains its position relative to the attachment at the time of the input being received.
ClearParent
Removes this entity from the the movement hierarchy, leaving it free to move independently.

Targetname:

Kill
Removes this entity and any entities parented to it from the world.
KillHierarchy
Functions the same as Kill, although this entity and any entities parented to it are killed on the same frame, being marginally faster than Kill.
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) !FGD
Execute a VScript function in the scope of the receiving entity.
SetLocalOrigin  <coordinates> (New with Alien Swarm) !FGD
Send this entity to a spot in the map. If the entity is parented to something, it will be offset from the parent by this amount.
SetLocalAngles  <angles> (New with Alien Swarm) !FGD
Set this entity's angles.
