Example usage of the function. We use util.KeyValuesToTablePreserveOrder in order to preserve multiple keys with the same name.

local ModelInfo = util.GetModelInfo("models/combine_gate_vehicle.mdl" ) print( ModelInfo.SkinCount ) // The skin count PrintTable( util.KeyValuesToTablePreserveOrder( ModelInfo.KeyValues ) ) // Physics data
Output: 1: Key = solid Value: 1: Key = index Value = 0 2: Key = name Value = Vehicle_Gate.Gate2_L 3: Key = mass Value = 1 4: Key = surfaceprop Value = metal 5: Key = damping Value = 0 6: Key = rotdamping Value = 0 7: Key = inertia Value = 1 8: Key = volume Value = 68522.9296875

.......

6: Key = editparams Value: 1: Key = rootname Value = 2: Key = totalmass Value = 1
