Reply With Quote #1

Hello, I'm trying to create an entity that follows a player, I've tried multiple threads for using the "SetParent", but none of the entities are "following" the player, and neither is it being teleported to the Players correct cords. The entity must also trigger "trigger_multiple" too, the flags on the "trigger_multiple" is "1088".

I've tried 0.1 timers between using SetParent and SetParentAttachment etc.

The 1.0 Timer includes me moving in-game too.

PHP Code:
void EntityPlayer(int iClient) {
    
float fPos[3];
    
GetClientAbsOrigin(iClientfPos);
    
PrintToChatAll("CReating: %i, %f, %f, %f"iClientfPos[0], fPos[1], fPos[2]);
    
int iEntity CreateEntityByName("trigger_multiple");
    if (
iEntity && IsValidEntity(iEntity)) {
        
char[] cBuffer = new char[512];
        
SetEntityModel(iEntity"models/error.mdl");

        
Format(cBuffer512"cclient%i"iClient);
        
DispatchKeyValue(iClient"targetname"cBuffer);

        
SetVariantString("!activator");
        
AcceptEntityInput(iEntity"SetParent"iClient);  
        
SetEntityMoveType(iEntityMOVETYPE_NOCLIP);

        if (
DispatchSpawn(iEntity)) {
            
PrintToChatAll("Spawned %i"iEntity);

            
DataPack pack = new DataPack();
            
pack.WriteCell(iEntity);
            
pack.WriteCell(iClient);
            
CreateTimer(0.1Timer_Assignpack);

            
CreateTimer(1.0Timer_EntityiEntityTIMER_REPEAT);
        }
    }
}

public 
Action Timer_Assign(Handle hTimerDataPack pack) {
    
PrintToChatAll("Running");
    
pack.Reset();
    
int iEntity pack.ReadCell();
    
int iClient pack.ReadCell();

    
PrintToChatAll("%i, %i"iEntityiClient);
    
//AcceptEntityInput(iEntity, "SetParentAttachment", iClient, iEntity);
}

public 
Action Timer_Entity(Handle hTimerint iEntity) {
    if (
IsValidEntity(iEntity)) {
        
float fPos[3];
        
GetEntPropVector(iEntityProp_Send"m_vecOrigin"fPos);

        
PrintToChatAll("Entity: %i, %f, %f, %f"iEntityfPos[0], fPos[1], fPos[2]);
    }

You should try to attach it to a valid attachmentpoint with :

SetVariantString("facemask"); as example.

You could get a list with attachmentpoints on HLMV Modelviewer for your game......

iirc m_vecOrigin of a parented entity gets the local origin, essentially the Entity being parented to becomes it's 0,0,0. There's another netprop that gets the absolute origin of an entity.

I've tested with that too still not the correct position.

Do you know what the netprop is called? I've looked at them all still cannot find it
