General utility functions not related to specific entities are listed under idThread. They're accessed in scripts using the dummy "sys" object, e.g. sys.waitFrame(), or float brown_position = sys.strFind("The quick brown fox", "brown", 0, 0, -1).

Is probably useful for stim/response as well Pass useLighting = true to take the lighting of the target entity into account. Use "isEntityHidden" as a script event with a threshold. The constant threshold value for useLighting is defined within the SDK in game/entity.h.

scriptEvent void waitFor(entity mover);

Waits for the given entity to complete its move.
Spawnclasses responding to this event: idThread

scriptEvent void waitForRender(entity e);

Suspends the current thread until 'e' might have been rendered. It's event based, so it doesn't waste CPU repeatedly checking inPVS(). e.inPVS() will very likely be true when the thread resumes. If e.inPVS() is true, calling waitForRender() will probably just wait a frame, unless D3 can figure out that the entity doesn't need to be rendered. Optimizations regarding shadowcasting lights may not apply to this function - it is based purely off whether or not the entity's bounding box is visible.
