1 boolean bDrawingDepth
Whether the current call is writing depth.
2 boolean bDrawingSkybox
Whether the current call is drawing skybox.


Draws a solid black sphere at where the player is looking at, but not when the skybox is being drawn.

You can see why this is needed if you disable the skybox check and look into the sky on gm_flatgrass (or any other map where the 3d skybox is below the map) and you will notice 2 spheres and not 1.

hook.Add( "PostDrawTranslucentRenderables", "test", function( bDepth, bSkybox ) -- If we are drawing in the skybox, bail if ( bSkybox ) then return end -- Set the draw material to solid white render.SetColorMaterial() -- The position to render the sphere at, in this case, the looking position of the local player local pos = LocalPlayer():GetEyeTrace().HitPos -- Draw the sphere! render.DrawSphere( pos, 500, 30, 30, Color( 0, 0, 0 ) ) end )
