Hmm... haven't really thought about it. I suppose you could do it using a bunch of func_trains, but there's probably an easier way to do it.

I tried to do one for my level but never found out how. In trigger push I think it mentions a conveyor option you can select. It has a little description about it, somthing about RELATIVE that needs to be used.

well, maybe i'm going to use my idea of a space-age, floating pallet jack like we use at Home depot ( only ours is not floating and spaced aged, lol)
I jsut wanted to make the force field blocked conveyer system to seperate my normal room temperature cargo bay from the Feezer where the beer is stored....

i'll figure something out.

Here is what the entities definition file says about fx_explosion_trail:

Creates an explosion type trail using the specified effect file, damaging things as it moves through the environment

Can also be used for something like a meteor, just add an impact effect ( fxFile2 ) and a splashDamage and splashRadius

GRAVITY - object uses gravity instead of linear motion

"fxFile" - name of the effect to play for the trail ( default "env/exp_trail_comp" )

"fxFile2" - effect file to play on impact

"model" - model to attach to the trail

"target" - direction to aim the trail in, required unless you specify angles

"targetname" - (required) trail effect spawns only when used.

"speed" - velocity through the world, ( default 350 )

"radius" - damage radius around trail as it travels through the world ( default 128 )

"damage" - radius damage ( default 128 )

"splashDamage" - damage when thing impacts ( default 0 )

"splashRadius" - damage radius on impact ( default 0 )

"soundset" - soundset to use, start sound plays when explosion trail starts, loop sound plays on explosion trail, end sound plays when it impacts
