table

The model info as a table with the following keys:

Example

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
