OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: vehicle:setIdleRespawnDelay(...)
Variable: .idleRespawnDelay

Required Arguments

  • theVehicle: The vehicle you wish to change the respawn delay of.
  • timeDelay: The number of milliseconds the vehicle will be allowed to remain unused until it respawns.


Returns true if the vehicle was found and edited.


This example creates a vehicle and sets its respawn delay to 20 seconds.

theVehicle = createVehicle ( 400, 1, 1, 1 )       -- create us a new vehicle
if ( theVehicle ) then
    toggleVehicleRespawn ( theVehicle, true ) -- enable vehicle respawn as it is necessary for the idle respawn to function
    setVehicleIdleRespawnDelay ( theVehicle, 20000 ) -- tell the server to respawn the vehicle 20 seconds after it's been left.
