These are functions that can be applied to machines built by players, such as sentry guns.

Usage

CFFBuildableObject:function(parameters)

or

CFFSentryGun:function(parameters)

or

CFFDispener:function(parameters)

Probably mancannons and detpacks would apply here as well

Example

function player_killed ( player_victim, damageinfo )

	-- if no damageinfo do nothing
	if not damageinfo then return end

	-- Entity that is attacking
	local attacker = damageinfo:GetAttacker()
  
	-- If no attacker do nothing
	if not attacker then return end

	elseif IsSentrygun(attacker) then
		attacker = CastToSentrygun(attacker)
		--attacker now refers to a CFFSentryGun object;
		--we can do sentry specific stuff, as well as general buildable stuff.
		player_attacker = attacker:GetOwner()
		--We now know who owns the sentry who killed this player
	end
end
