  boolean Entity:PhysicsFromMesh( table vertices, string surfaceprop = "default" )


Initializes the physics mesh of the entity from a triangle soup defined by a table of vertices. The resulting mesh is hollow, may contain holes, and always has a volume of 0.

While this is very useful for static geometry such as terrain displacements, it is advised to use Entity:PhysicsInitConvex or Entity:PhysicsInitMultiConvex for moving solid objects instead.

Entity:EnableCustomCollisions needs to be called if you want players to collide with the entity correctly.


1 table vertices
A table consisting of MeshVertex structure (only the pos element is taken into account). Every 3 vertices define a triangle in the physics mesh.
2 string surfaceprop = "default"
Physical material from surfaceproperties.txt or added with physenv.AddSurfaceData.


1 boolean
Returns true on success, nil otherwise.
