This function gets position of the dummies contained in a vehicle model.

Syntax

bool getVehicleModelDummyPosition ( int modelID, vehicle-dummy dummy )

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: Vehicle.getVehicleModelDummyPosition(...)
Counterpart: setVehicleModelDummyPosition

Required Arguments

  • modelID: The model ID which you want to apply the change to
  • dummy: The dummy whose position you want to get

Allowed dummies

  • light_front_main: Primary front lights position.
  • light_rear_main: Primary rear lights position.
  • light_front_second: Secondary front lights position.
  • light_rear_second: Secondary rear lights position.
  • seat_front: Front seat position.
  • seat_rear: Rear seat position.
  • exhaust: Exhaust fumes start position.
  • engine: Engine smoke start position.
  • gas_cap: Vehicle gas cap position (shooting it will explode vehicle)
  • trailer_attach: Point at which trailers will be attached to vehicle.
  • hand_rest: (?)Hand rest position.
  • exhaust_second: Secondary exhaust position (for example in NRG-500)
  • wing_airtrail: Point from which air trail will show in airplanes, visible while in sharp turns.
  • veh_gun: Vehicle gun position (ex. Rustler)

Returns

Returns the position of given dummy if everything went fine, false otherwise.

Example

Given example will draw rectangle over every dummy in vehicle player is currently sitting it.

local dummies = {
	"light_front_main",
	"light_rear_main",
	"light_front_second",
	"light_rear_second",

	if not veh then return end

	local mat = getElementMatrix(veh)
	local vx,vy,vz = getMatrixPosition(mat)
	local fx,fy,fz = getMatrixForward(mat)
	local lx,ly,lz = getMatrixLeft(mat)
	local ux,uy,uz = getMatrixUp(mat)
	local model = getElementModel(veh)

	for i,dum in ipairs(dummies) do
		local v = {getVehicleModelDummyPosition(model, dum)}
		if v[1] ~= 0 or v[2] ~= 0 or v[3] ~= 0 then
			local px,py,pz = vx,vy,vz
			px = px+fx*v[2]+lx*v[1]+ux*v[3]
			py = py+fy*v[2]+ly*v[1]+uy*v[3]
			pz = pz+fz*v[2]+lz*v[1]+uz*v[3]

			local sx,sy = getScreenFromWorldPosition( px,py,pz,0,false )
			if sx then
				dxDrawRectangle( sx-10, sy-10, 20, 20, v[4] )
				dxDrawText(i-1, sx-5,sy-5,20,20,tocolor( 0,0,0 ))
			end
