This function allows you to change the state of one of the six panels vehicle's can have. When executed on the server-side resources, the damage will be synched for all players, whereas the change is only client-side if the function is used in a client resource.


bool setVehiclePanelState ( vehicle theVehicle, int panelID, int state )

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: vehicle:setPanelState(...)
Counterpart: getVehiclePanelState

Required Arguments

  • theVehicle: The vehicle you would like to modify the panel of.
  • panelID: An ID specifying the part of the vehicle. Possible values are:
  • Cars:
    • 0: Front-left panel
    • 1: Front-right panel
    • 2: Rear-left panel
    • 3: Rear-right panel
    • 4: Windscreen
    • 5: Front bumper
    • 6: Rear bumper

    • 3: Elevators
    • 4: Ailerons
    • 5: Unknown
    • 6: Unknown

NOTE: Settings are not applicable for all vehicles of these types, for instance panel 0 effects a Dodo, but does nothing to a hydra.

  • state: How damaged the part is on the scale of 0 to 3, with 0 being undamaged and 3 being very damaged. How this is manifested depends on the panel and the vehicle.


Returns true if the panel state has been updated, false otherwise
