EngineFreeModel

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki

BETA: FROM VERSION 1.5.7 r20147 ONWARDS
This function is used to un-assign the specified model ID from the engineRequestModel assignment.

Syntax

bool engineFreeModel ( int modelID )

Required Arguments

  • modelID: the model ID you want to have un-assigned.

Returns

Returns true if the model was successfully freed, false otherwise.

Example

This example creates a ped and then gives you the opportunity to change its model. If the resource stops, then the IDs allocated will be deallocated. Use /cap for creating the ped and /sap to skin the ped. You will need some skins added to a folder and to the meta.xml for /sap to work.

local peds = {}
function createAllocatedPed()
    local x, y, z = getElementPosition(localPlayer)
    local id = engineRequestModel("ped")
    peds[id] = createPed(id, x+0.5, y, z+0.5)
    outputChatBox("New ped with ID "..id.." created.")
end
addCommandHandler("cap", createAllocatedPed, false, false)

function skinAllocatedPeds()
    local txd, dff;
    for id,ped in pairs(peds) do
        if fileExists("skins/" .. id .. ".txd") and fileExists("skins/" .. id .. ".dff") then
            txd = engineLoadTXD("skins/" .. id .. ".txd")
            engineImportTXD(txd, id)
            dff = engineLoadDFF("skins/" .. id .. ".dff")
            engineReplaceModel(dff, id)
            outputChatBox("Model ID "..id.." changed correctly.")
        else
            outputChatBox("Model ID "..id.." couldn't change. REASON: skins/" .. id .. ".txd or skins/" .. id .. ".dff does not exist.")
        end
    end
end
addCommandHandler("sap", skinAllocatedPeds, false, false)

function onStop()
    for id,ped in pairs(peds) do
        engineFreeModel(id)
    end
end
addEventHandler("onClientResourceStop", resourceRoot, onStop)
