The cycler entity is used to display models in your map. Its collision hull is solid to bullets and will spill black and white blood. The cycler entity will cycle through the model's animations every time it takes damage, of in case it gets triggered- cycle part of current animation. A better, non-solid alternative to this entity is [item_generic](../item_generic], which allows you to set up your own collisions using clip- or null-textured brushes.
OnDestroy Function ondestroyfn : Name of the function to use from already parsed .as script files when entity is destroyed (killed) in any way. If the function belongs to namespace, you must use prefix with the namespace name (e.g. mynamespace::MyFunction) for the keyvalue.
Name targetname : Set name of cycler so other entities can trigger it to pause/unpause model. Every trigger use-type works uniformly. Paused model can't be hit to cycle through animations, some current animation frames are skipped instead.
Pitch Yaw Roll (X Y Z) angles : Where Z means Y and Y means Z, that is, when you're thinking Hammer-grid. (Hammer uses Z for height and Y for depth, while every other sane 3D-application does this the other way round; nonetheless this keyvalue description has the letters in the conventional order) This, technically, is a 3D-vector containing Euler-angles to describe either the entity's rotation or direction of effect. E.g. a func_door_rotating will use this as its initial rotation, while a trigger_push will keep its original alignment and use this for the direction of its push-effect instead. Euler-angles are a hierarchical system to determine an object's orientation in 3D-space. A yaw-value of 0 would mean the entity would face east. (right in top-down view) 90 would mean it would face north. (up in top-down-view) After yaw, pitch is applied. Think aiming up/down with your character in first person. At last, the roll-value is applied. Think your character falling over sideways in first person. Some entities, mostly point entities, do not use the angles keyvalue for any purpose.
Model model : Specify a valid model-file to display here. Path starts from within modification's folder e.g. 'models/cleansuit_scientist.mdl'
Render FX renderfx : Set custom render FX effect. Only works when "Render Mode" is set to different than 'Normal'
Render Mode rendermode : Render mode determines how this entity is rendered.
FX Amount (1 - 255) renderamt : Render amount to use when other than "Render Mode" 'Normal' is used.
FX Color (R G B) rendercolor : Used with "Render Mode" 'Color' and 'Glow' to set color. Also sets color of 'Glow Shell' "Render Mode".
