How would I tie something to 2 entities? For example, say I wanted glass that shatters and also rotates. I know how to make it breakable or rotating, but i can't seem to make it do both.
Thanks!

You can't, pick one entity. It would be stupid to be able to assign multiple entities to one object. How would you expect it to function?

As sprinkles said in a very mean way that was meant to frighten off new mappers, you can't do it.

However, there's a mod called Spirit of Half-Life that enables you to do this. Happy mapping

Why would it be stupid to have more possibilities? I'm going to have to disagree here...

the rotate entity would make it rotate and the breakable entity would make it breakable.. sounds reasonable to me..

Don't take this reply the wrong way though, I do appreciate the help! Thanks!

I think Sprinkles was being sarcastic and making fun of how little the halflife engine can handle... I think.

Haha maby, but at least I got an answer so I don't waste time trying to figure it out

Not my first intent.

Because, the game engine wouldn't know how to render it, or how it would function.

How does the game engine know how breakable-rotating objects function?

Now I'm not saying you can't have an entity that can break and rotate. I'm saying the game engine doesn't know how to render two entities on one object.

To be fair to the guy, yes it could, if Valve had included support for it. They've not, but you know.

Spirit of Half Life does allow this but is a little limited and buggy about it.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.
