• Following Object

  • Is it possible in hammer to make something that can follow you? I wanted to make something like light that can follow you. If it is possible.
  • What do you mean by "follow"? Like a player holding a flashlight or a static light that points at the player as he moves around
  • I'm pretty sure he means something like an "irrlicht", like a glowing ball of light or such that follows the player, kinda like a slender npc? Definetely possible with the use of entities, but don't ask me how.
  • You can parent things to the player by typing "!player" in the parent field. env_sprite doesn't actually cast light, you could try a light_dynamic or env_projectedtexture
  • Nope. You would need a trigger to create a object and parent it for every player every time they spawn.
  • Hey just saying you can set the target of a light entity such as a projected texture to !player and it will track the players position.
