Example 1

This example implements a serverside set_vehicle_color console command.

-- Define our function that will handle the command
function consoleSetVehicleColor ( playerSource, commandName, col1, col2, col3, col4 )
	-- If a player triggered this in-game
	if ( playerSource ) then
		-- Get the player's vehicle
		playerVehicle = getPlayerOccupiedVehicle ( playerSource )
		-- If the player is in a vehicle and we've got at least 1 parameter
		if ( playerVehicle and col1 ) then
			-- Get the vehicle's existing color and use it if fewer than 4 arguments were passed
			exCol1, exCol2, exCol3, exCol4 = getVehicleColor ( playerVehicle )

			if not col2 then col2 = exCol2 end
			if not col3 then col3 = exCol3 end
			if not col4 then col4 = exCol4 end

			-- Set the vehicle's color
			setVehicleColor ( playerVehicle, col1, col2, col3, col4 )
		else
			-- If we didn't get at least 1 parameter or the player doesn't have a vehicle, display some help text
			outputConsole ( "This function will set your current vehicle's colors. A vehicle can have up to 4 colors.", playerSource )
			outputConsole ( "Syntax: set_vehicle_color color1 [ color2 color3 color4 ]", playerSource )
			outputConsole ( "You must be in a vehicle to use this function.", playerSource )
		end
	end
end

-- Register the command handler and attach it to the consoleSetVehicleColor function
addCommandHandler ( "set_vehicle_color", consoleSetVehicleColor )

Example 2

This example changes all vehicles color to random every 0.5 sec.

function randomVehColors()
	for i, car in ipairs( getElementsByType( "vehicle" ) ) do
		local color = {}
		color[1] = math.random(0,126) -- random from 0 to 126, because colors is from 0 to 126
		color[2] = math.random(0,126)
		color[3] = math.random(0,126)
		color[4] = math.random(0,126) -- we take 4 random numbers because setVehicleColor have parameters with 4 colors
		setVehicleColor ( car, color[1], color[2], color[3], color[4] ) -- setting color to vehicle
	end
end

setTimer( randomVehColors, 500, 0 )	-- timer changes all vehicles colors to random every 0.5 sec.
