Example

Example 1: Server and client

This example will blow up every vehicle in the game.

vehicles = getElementsByType ( "vehicle" )
for vehicleKey, vehicleValue in ipairs(vehicles) do
	blowVehicle ( vehicleValue )
end

It is worth noting that the same could be achieved with the following:

blowVehicle ( root ) -- root (getRootElement) is a built in MTA variable and therefore we do not have to define it.

Example 2: Server

This example will blow a player's vehicle when he enters the car, like a carbomb.

riggedVehicle = createVehicle(445, 0, 0, 5)
function blowVehicleEnter ( thePlayer, seat, jacked )
	--ENGINE START BOMB. 
	if seat == 0 then --check if the seat the player got into was id 0 - i.e. driver seat
		blowVehicle ( source ) --if it was, toast him
	end
end
addEventHandler ( "onVehicleEnter", riggedVehicle, blowVehicleEnter ) --trigger the function when a certain vehicle is entered

Client Class Example

Heads up! Client classes only work on MTA 1.4, therefore we highly recommend you to visit Client Scripting Classes first.

Example 1: Client

This script will create an Infernus at the center (0, 0, 3) of San Andreas upon execution.

addEventHandler( "onClientResourceStart", resourceRoot,
    function()
        infernus = Vehicle.create( 411, Vector3( 0, 0, 3 ) ); -- Create an Infernus and spawn it at the middle of SA.
        infernus:setColor( 0, 0, 0 ); -- Set its color to black.
    end)
	
addCommandHandler( "blowinfernus",
    function()
        if not infernus.blown then -- Check if the Infernus is blown up or not.
            infernus:blow();
        else -- Ouch, it's blown up, let's output an error to the client.
            outputChatBox( "The Infernus has already been blown up by you.", 255, 0, 0, false );
        end
    end)
