How can I make this throwing knife activate the countdown once it hits something?

Just add a lua script to the Active Explosive Throwing Knife.

Code:
function create(self)
self:Activate();
end


Then, when it's created, it's gonna activate itself.

Thanks!

Edit: How do I get it to do a trigger delay?

MOS Rotating doesnt work with TriggerDelay. I had to use MOS rotating because TDExplosive would just create the explosive and not activate it.

You'll have to use a script that gibs the MOSRotating after a set period of time.

Code:
function Create(self)

   self.gibtimer = Timer();

end

function Update(self)

   if self.gibTimer:IsPastSimMS(4000) then
      self:GibThis();
   end

end

Would That be in 2 different files, or in the same one?

Same script file, attached to the MOSRotating.

I attatched it to the MOSRotating, but it wont detonate it. it just sits there, even when I set the timer to 1.

Are there any errors in the Lua console?

This is the console.

Code:
function Create(self)

   self.GibTimer = Timer(1);

end

function Update(self)

   if self.GibTimer:IsPastSimMS(3000) then
      self:GibThis();
   end

end

It should just be "self.GibTimer = Timer();" - you do not put a number within those brackets.
