I think this might be engine, But possible in qc. Is it possible to make the screen follow a .enemy entity just  alittle bit? Kind of lik ein the halo games. It kinda locks onto the target but if he moves far enough away, you got free aim. I wanna code this in an dlearn more about vectors( Because I`m sure there is alot in this function). I also need it for my mod, And duke, Im totally giving you credit for some of the things I have added like fusion coils. The coil movement, however, Doesn`t work ( I wish you could find a way to fix). So do you know of any way to make the screen follow an enemy for a certain range? Thanks in advance. And one more quickie : What is the function in client callled when the player only enters the server once. No tthe Function that is called when setting up th eplayer. there Is a main start, I know there is.

Perhaps worldspawn is what you're looking for? It's used to precache models.

What exactly do you mean by the screen following an entity? Do you want to find entites in front of the player and then rotate the player's view so their crosshair stays on that particular entity? I'd know how to find entites in front of the player, however, I wouldn't know how to make the player rotate in their direction.

And for the fusion coils, I'll have to try to make my own so I can see what could possibly be the problem for myself.

Yea. bsp is a map file. But look at some on quakes entities like ammo and health. They are created in worldcraft and are maps. Same with misc_explobox. It is a method called map modeling. I just started and I like it.

I have not added anything even close to screen following. I hope you experiment with misc_explobox and find a nice hackish ragdoll effect still.
