How to work func_forcefield?
« on: September 12, 2018, 02:00:25 AM »
This feature also declared in code and func.def, but looks like not used in vanilla assets.

What is main idea of this entity?
Thanks!

For throwing things I think.  It's been used for jumppads.

Not sure. It's more like volume inside of which specified entity will be affected with force in specified direction (defined by vector or just target_null). The Volume is most important definition, because all experiments with very small brushes are not informative.

There is a good definition on darkmod wiki:

Just remembered that i did use this once to simulate a "space vaccuume" effect in my space sjip map. 

Took a few tries to get the hang of it if i remeber correctly.   :riflenade:
