Tutorial Bullet Proof Non-Solid Walls!

    I used this trick to fix zm_officespace from letting humans be able to launch zombies with an AWP. I found the trick on an archived TF2 forum.
    So basically:
    • Depending on the thickness depends on the damage and how hard a bullet penetrates through the wall.
    • Can walk through it
    • Bulletproof
    So make yourself a block the size of the area you want to block with Nodraw. Approx. 20 units will block bullets from all weapons on Zombie Mod.

    Once you have created your wall, press CTRL+T to create it into an entity, and make it a func_physbox and disable the shadows. Then switch on over to the Flags tab, and check the following boxes:
    • Start Asleep
    • Debris - Don't collide with the player or other debris
    • Motion Disabled
    • Generate Output on +USE ---------- Probably don't need this, but use it anyway.
    • Prevent motion enable on player bump
    • Only Break on Trigger
    • Don't take physics damage
    • Don't allow bullet penetration
    Save make sure you hit Apply, then test out your wall against a bot to make sure it works!

    Here's the download link to my test version of it, if you want to play with it.

    To my knowledge, there isn't a tool texture that can do this.

    UPDATE: Here is a list of thicknesses that you need to block each bullet type with Nodraw or Block Bullets (or anything not glass really) Look at the value on the right, middle value is for glass. 45 unit thick glass is huge :neutral:
