HullTrace

Description

Table used by util.TraceHull.

Parameters

Vector start
The start position of the trace
Vector endpos
The end position of the trace
Vector maxs
The 3D vector local to the start/endpos with the highest values. This will represent the corner with the upper bounds of the box.
Vector mins
The 3D vector local to the start/endpos with the lowest (often negative) values. This will represent the corner with the lower bounds of the box.
Entity filter
Things the trace should not hit. Can also be a table of entities or a function with one argument:

  • Entity ent - The entity that the trace hit

Using a function here is super slow. Try to avoid it.

Default: {}

number mask
The trace mask Enums/MASK. This determines what the trace should hit and what it shouldn't hit.

Default: MASK_SOLID

number collisiongroup
The collision group Enums/COLLISION_GROUP. This determines what the trace should hit in regards to the entity's collision group.

Default: COLLISION_GROUP_NONE

boolean ignoreworld
Should the trace ignore world or not.

Default: false

table output
If set, the trace result will be written to the supplied table instead of returning a new table

Default: nil
