From 1.1, as well as the above syntax, colors can also be retrieved as RGB values:

Syntax

int, int, int, int, int, int, int, int, int, int, int, int = getVehicleColor ( vehicle theVehicle, bool bRGB )

Required Arguments

  • theVehicle: The vehicle that you wish to get the color of.
  • bRGB : A boolean specifying whether to return RGB values. A setting of false will result in the function returning color ids instead.

Returns

  • Returns 12 ints (if bRGB is true) indicating the red, green and blue components of each of the 4 vehicle colors.
  • Returns 4 ints (if bRGB is false) indicating the color ids of each of the 4 vehicle colors.
  • Returns false if the vehicle doesn't exist.
