Just wanna know some major & minor differences between them!
trigger_catapult will aim you towards a specified target, trigger_push just sends you in whatever direction you set it to.
Trigger push only works for players in mid-air.
Not necessarily, for April Fools I was working on a map (never finished it, rip) where players were pushed along a pre-determined path using trigger_push and it worked even when they were on the ground.
trigger_push was there first. trigger_catapult was backported from Portal 2 relatively recently.
I've only really gotten trigger_catapult to work, and it doesn't have to launch you towards a target, it can just launch you in a direction. Though the ability to launch towards a specific point is very useful.
Trigger_Catapult launches you instantly while Trigger_Push just slowly accelerates you in the set direction. The thing about trigger_push only working when in midair is when it's supposed to fling you straight up.
trigger_catapult can be used to fling things across a map. Useful for explosive or flaming barrels. if you set its power to 0, you can use it as a hovering display stand for physics props.
That sounds a lot like koth_conveyor.
Thanks a lot guys & girls for your help!
I really appreciate it!
