No, it's a dog. Flying an airplane. In Spain.
... What kind of a question is that? :P Just read the title.

MAN! I might be able to use this in my mod somewhere. Downloading now.
EDIT: I can't even begin to imagine how you did this, even with the enire setup in front of me. 5 stars for awsomeness, but next time please use HL textures.

Thanks :D
I thought I used HL textures... guess I was wrong. I'll see if I can fix that.
Edit: fix'd. No more non-HL textures.

It is a jetpack. If I wanted to demonstrate how to make a brush entity follow the player I would make a black cylinder and call it a hat. To fly, you have to bind a button to +jetpack (just like the text in the beginning says), then hold down that button.

Binding buttons to commands is done using the bind command:
bind <button> <command>
So if you want to use the button V to fly you would enter
bind v +jetpack
in the console.

I thought of adding flame effects but wanted to keep it simple so I didn't.

That really boosted my understanding of spirit's entities, thank you!
Two questions:

What was the purpose of killing restart?
What was the purpose of the explosion? Nothing seemed to trigger it.

1) restart (which triggers the console command with the same name) is automatically triggered at start after sv_cheats has been set to 1. To prevent the game from restarting over and over again, restart is killed once cheats have been activated.
2) Damn, I must have forgotten to remove it. I'll upload a new version without it.

Ah,.. this doesn't work for me...

Which SoHL version were you using, Bahurs1? I've only tried this in 1.5a4.
