Physics keep turning off!!!

Post by hakkuo23 » Tue Oct 26, 2010 4:58 pm

Alright, I'm going to use mg_smash as an example.
Sometimes after the server has been up for a while, the physics stop colliding with the brushes. So, in mg_smash, when the blocks fall, they fall through the floor and through the players. I have to do a server restart to fix this so how can I prevent this from happening?
Thanks

You're problem is not one that I'm familiar with, but it sounds highly game/mod specific. What type of server is this?

It is a mini games server.

If it's a Garrysmod minigames server, than did this problem just begin today? A Garrysmod update was released today and I have had one other customer who said that it broke at least one of his addons.

No it is a CS:S server.

Do you have a plugin or config that might be changing a physics variable? There are quite a few of them, including sv_turbophysics. It might be worth taking a look at what some of their values are after the problems start, and comparing it to the fresh server.

Here are some of of the physics variables that might change.

Code: Select all

npc_vphysics                             : 0        : , "sv"           :
phys_impactforcescale                    : 1        : , "sv"           :
phys_penetration_error_time              : 10       : , "sv"           : Controls the duration of vphysics penetration error boxes.
phys_pushscale                           : 1        : , "sv", "rep"    :
phys_speeds                              : 0        : , "sv"           :
phys_stressbodyweights                   : 5        : , "sv"           :
phys_timescale                           : 1        : , "sv"           : Scale time for physics
phys_upimpactforcescale                  : 0        : , "sv"           :
physicsshadowupdate_render               : 0        : , "sv"           :
sv_bounce                                : 0        : , "sv", "nf", "rep" : Bounce multiplier for when physically simulated objects collide with other objects.
sv_pushaway_clientside                   : 0        : , "sv", "rep"    : Clientside physics push away (0=off, 1=only localplayer, 1=all players)
sv_pushaway_force                        : 30000    : , "sv", "rep"    : How hard physics objects are pushed away from the players on the server.
sv_pushaway_max_force                    : 1000     : , "sv", "rep"    : Maximum amount of force applied to physics objects by players.
sv_pushaway_min_player_speed             : 75       : , "sv", "rep"    : If a player is moving slower than this, don't push away physics objects (enables ducking behind things).
sv_turbophysics                          : 0        : , "sv", "rep"    : Turns on turbo physics
vprof_scope_entity_gamephys              : 0        : , "sv"           :

It's an engine problem caused by an oncolide hook error, I don't think there's a fix for it other then restarting the server. Seems to happen a lot to mini-game servers on piratewars, smash cannons, and other maps like that because of the amount of moving objects. Been having problems with it myself, If I do find a fix ill let you know :).
