Simplified code taken from sandbox's commands.lua

local function MakeRagdoll( Player, Pos, Ang, Model, PhysicsObjects, Data ) local Ent = ents.Create( "prop_ragdoll" ) duplicator.DoGeneric( Ent, Data ) Ent:Spawn() duplicator.DoGenericPhysics( Ent, Player, Data ) Ent:Activate() Ent:SetSpawnEffect( true ) return Ent end
Output: Spawns the ragdoll and then sets the spawnEffect flag to true.
