Editing Entity (section) From Quake Wiki Warning: You are not logged in. Your IP address will be publicly visible if you make any edits.

Do not fill this in! ==Overview== Entities can be broadly defined as belonging to one of two different types, point entities and solid entities (also known as brush entities). A '''point entity''' is an entity that can be placed at any point in the level, and its geometry (if any) is predefined in the game data. For example, a monster is a point entity. A level author might place many [[monster_ogre|ogres]] in their level, but each ogre will be the same shape and behave the same way because they are defined by the game already. The name stems from the fact that a point entity has one single coordinate (a point) determining its position. A '''solid entity''', on the other hand, is made by the level author out of [[Brush|brushes]] and can take any shape the author wishes. A [[func_door|door]], for example, is something that the level author needs to be able to design themselves in order to fit into different [[level_theme|themes]], different sized holes etc. The static level geometry itself is also defined as a [[worldspawn]] entity, but it is a special entity that is treated differently by the [[Map_compiling|compilers]], and depending on the [[Mapping_tools#Level_Editors|level editor]] being used, its settings might be accessed from a different place to that of other entities. The worldspawn is always the first entity defined in a .map file.
