Post TF2 Sentry Gun
I am making a sentry gun for my Team Fortress 2 mod but I don't know how to make a TDExplosive spawn my sentry ACrab (on the right team too) when it gibs on contact with something.
Can anyone help?

Hey, if you're gonna post just to say that other topics exist, at least link those topics.



@OP: The cleanest way to do this is with a quick Lua script attached to your TDExplosive, something like this:
Code:
function Create(self)

   self.alliedTeam = -1;
   self.enableDeploy = false;

end

function Update(self)

   if self.ID ~= self.RootID then
      local actor = MovableMan:GetMOFromID(self.RootID);
      if MovableMan:IsActor(actor) then
         self.alliedTeam = ToActor(actor).Team;
      end
   end

   if self:IsActivated() and self.ID == self.RootID then
      self.enableDeploy = true;
   end

end

function Destroy(self)

   if self.enableDeploy == true then
      self.deployActor = CreateACrab("Whatever your crab name is");
      self.deployActor.Team = self.alliedTeam;
      self.deployActor.Pos = self.Pos;
      self.deployActor.AIMode = 1;
      MovableMan:AddActor(self.deployActor);
   end

end

It's untested, so it may not work 100% guaranteed. There are also INI-only methods to gib actors as well, but they're a lot hackier.
