This entity has no flags.
cycler_sprite will produce a solid sprite which cannot be moved through.
Triggering or pressing use on the cycler_sprite will freeze the sprite. In this state, the cycler_sprite will not animate automatically, only stepping through its animation via being attacked. Triggering it or using it again will return it to its normal function.
Although it seems strange, this entity is one of the better entities for placing a decorative model into a map. It will not stop players nor bullets. Simply place a model into the Sprite attribute.
