Default When do sticky bombs bounce off a surface?


hello there, I've checked the standard spots for this, like the last part of badwater or the nucleus bridges, but didn't find any apparent brushes or options causing this.

So, how can the "bounce effect" be used on props and/or brushes?

Thanks,

B.

When they're solid entities (not func_detail).

Things like func_brush, func_lod, func_door, etc. They all reflect stickies.

If you purposefully want them to bounce off props then make them non-solid and fill it with a func_brush or the sorts.

huh, well, that's pretty cool. I suppose the same goes for displacements?

Yes. Although matching the shape of a simple brush to a displacement would be harder.

Well, I also saw sticky bombs that sticked to a func_door.
It happens if a certain texture was used.
We had this situation some weeks ago on koth_pc. The stickys floated in air, after the spawn door was opened up.

I don't know what texture it is, but you can see this often in alpha maps.

Are you sure this isnt because the door was a prop? Stickies stick to props, for instance in freight or well, put a sticky on a passing train and it will float in the air

If i recall correctly, a few weeks/month ago, valve broke something and make stickies stick to things they shouldn't. I remember people sticking stickies to trains on fright and then having a sea of them floating in midair when they left. I think they fixed it now though.

They were probably stuck to the prop_dynamic that was parented to the door. Sometimes people have the same issue with the payload if they leave the prop_physics collision on. Stickies will stick to the prop and then suddenly appear to float in mid air as the cart moves forwards (or backwards).

If I recall correctly stickies also stick to surfaces textured with block bullets.
