Most importantly, this cannon does not fire real projectiles, it fires func_physboxes, prop_physics, and prop_ragdoll. This fiel is for no real use, but there are some maps, like svencoop 1s infamous toonrun series, that are centered on fun and stupidity, which my cannon is based on. It can also be used as an extremely innaccurate improvisional cannon, like in the army or something
I am Entih, and this is my FIRST EVER PREFAB!!! (applauds) But really, if you are reading this, you are either psycic, or you downloaded this prefab. Considering this probably isn't the latter, thank you. I am putting in this readme a few instructions as to the use of my cannon. In order to install, just extract all the files via winzip to the sdk/bin/prefabs directory, this will include my cannon and control prefabs, a screenshot, and this readme. Also included is a map called test_cannon, which is a long range for testing a new design and whatnot. Just take the files out of the folder, and put them in the sdk maps file. Yes, I made this, this is my first, and I am Entih. As stated below, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Please email me to congradulate or question me, and please DO NOT email me to flame or scream at me. If I suspect that you are mailing me to be angry or to send a virus, you will be blocked out of my email.

The button is used to fire. The switch on the LEFT is used to aim horizontally, and the one to the RIGHT is used to aim vertically. 3.There are several ways to reload the cannon. First you can use the weapon_physcannon to launch the item into it, as long as the item is not breakable. Secondly, you can build a platform at the cannons straight out position to carry the object inside manually. I created this prefab with such an extremely simple design for a few reasons. The first is that I did plan on making it super complex at first, but after 5 failing designs, each with major flaws, I decided to settle on this, which has near no flaws (but if you find any, email me at email@example.com and I will work on making a version 2). Next is for the people. You are given full capability to change and adjust the cannon, such as retexturing and redesigning without building the main components from scratch. BUT, no matter how you change it, if you use this original form as a basis or a model for building a better more complex version, I simply request some recognition in your readme and/or credits. Thank you for flying Entih, please make your way out the left door with a parachoute, because we discovered the pilot is dead, thank you again.
