 Entity:PhysicsInitMultiConvex( )



An advanced version of Entity:PhysicsInitConvex which initializes a physics object from multiple convex meshes. This should be used for physics objects with a custom shape which cannot be represented by a single convex mesh.

If successful, the previous physics object will be removed.


Clientside physics objects are broken and do not move properly. Physics objects should only created on the server or you will experience incorrect physgun beam position and prediction issues.


table vertices

A table consisting of tables of Vectors. Each sub-table defines a set of points to be used in the computation of one convex mesh.



Returns true on success, nil otherwise



Creates a physics mesh for the entity which consists of two boxes.

local min1 = Vector( -30, -10, 0 ) -- Box1 minimum corner
local max1 = Vector( -10, 10, 20 ) -- Box1 maximum corner

local min2 = Vector( 10, -5, 10 ) -- Box2 minimum corner
local max2 = Vector( 30, 5, 40 ) -- Box2 maximum corner

if SERVER then
	function ENT:Initialize()
		self:SetModel( "models/props_c17/oildrum001.mdl" )

		-- Initializing the multi-convex physics mesh
		self:PhysicsInitMultiConvex( {
			{ -- Each sub-table is a set of vertices of a convex piece, order doesn't matter
				Vector( min1.x, min1.y, min1.z ), -- The first box vertices
				Vector( min1.x, min1.y, max1.z ),
				Vector( min1.x, max1.y, min1.z ),
				Vector( min1.x, max1.y, max1.z ),
				Vector( max1.x, min1.y, min1.z ),
				Vector( max1.x, min1.y, max1.z ),
				Vector( max1.x, max1.y, min1.z ),
				Vector( max1.x, max1.y, max1.z ),
			{ -- All these tables together form a concave collision mesh
				Vector( min2.x, min2.y, min2.z ), -- The second box vertices
				Vector( min2.x, min2.y, max2.z ),
				Vector( min2.x, max2.y, min2.z ),
				Vector( min2.x, max2.y, max2.z ),
				Vector( max2.x, min2.y, min2.z ),
				Vector( max2.x, min2.y, max2.z ),
				Vector( max2.x, max2.y, min2.z ),
				Vector( max2.x, max2.y, max2.z ),
		} )

		self:SetSolid( SOLID_VPHYSICS ) -- Setting the solidity
		self:SetMoveType( MOVETYPE_VPHYSICS ) -- Setting the movement type

		self:EnableCustomCollisions( true ) -- Enabling the custom collision mesh

		self:PhysWake() -- Enabling the physics motion
	local col = Color( 0, 0, 255, 255 )

	-- Drawing collision boxes on the client
	function ENT:Draw()

		local pos, ang = self:GetPos(), self:GetAngles()

		render.DrawWireframeBox( pos, ang, min1, max1, col ) -- Drawing the first collision box
		render.DrawWireframeBox( pos, ang, min2, max2, col ) -- Drawing the second collision box
