boolean Entity:PhysicsInitBox( Vector mins, Vector maxs )


Makes the physics object of the entity a AABB.

If the volume of the resulting box is 0 (the mins and maxs are the same), the mins and maxs will be changed to Vector( -1, -1, -1 ) and Vector( 1, 1, 1 ), respectively.
This function will automatically destroy any previous physics objects if successful and call Entity:SetSolid( SOLID_BBOX ), Entity:SetMoveType( MOVETYPE_VPHYSICS ), and Entity:SetCollisionBounds( mins, maxs ).
Clientside physics objects are broken and do not move properly in some cases. Physics objects should only created on the server or you will experience incorrect physgun beam position, prediction issues, and other unexpected behavior.


1 Vector mins
The minimum position of the box. This is automatically ordered with the maxs.
2 Vector maxs
The maximum position of the box. This is automatically ordered with the mins.


1 boolean
Returns true on success, nil otherwise. This fails when the game cannot create any more PhysCollides.
