hlss_glow_entity

The glow entities can be used to create not only the L4D style entity glows, but by selecting the icon, also to add Objectives. All the Objectives are tied to the icon, cannot currently be disabled, and there are no custom Objectives.

The entity is used for most of the objectives and glow effects in the mod, with the exception of the Interfaces, Main Frame, Advisor Pod, and players.

Special Rules:
Grenades: Glow entities using the Grenade icon will show up to Revealed Traitor even if the glow entity has been disabled with the input function.
Thumpers: Glow entities using the Thumper icon will always show up to Traitor players. If the glow entity is disabled (which should mean the Thumper is enabled) then the objective to disable the thumper will appear to the Traitor.
