Do player clips cut visgroups? Also, what textures cut visgroups?

    So, I have recently come to learn that the blockbullets texture cuts visgroups. Does the playerclip texture do the same?

    I'm also curious as to what other utility textures cut visgroups.

    This page tells you almost everything you need to know about tool textures.

    I think you mean visleaves, not visgroups?

    Also as far as I know playerclips won't cut them

    You want to be using blockbullets2, which was made specifically to not cut visleaves.

    Nodraw, blockbullets, skybox and hint tool brushes cut visleaves.

    Oh! I was wondering what that texture was for. Thank you.

    Couldn't you just func_detail the normal blockbullets? Or would that affect its behavior in some way other then making it stop cuting visleafs?

    You can do that. Blockbullets2 just doesn't need the extra step, otherwise they should be identical.
