Example

This example makes every SWAT tank immune from all weapon attacks.

Click to collapse [-]
Client
function handleVehicleDamage(attacker, weapon, loss, x, y, z, tire)
    if (weapon and getElementModel(source) == 601) then
        -- A weapon was used and the vehicle model ID is that of the SWAT tank so cancel the damage.
        cancelEvent()
    end
end
addEventHandler("onClientVehicleDamage", root, handleVehicleDamage)

This example allows the Rhino to take damage from bullets even though they're bullet proof, this example doesn't work with explosions though.

Click to collapse [-]
Client
-- Only let these weapons damage a Rhino
local weaponsToDamageRhino = {
	[38] = true, -- minigun
	[33] = true, -- country rifle
	[34] = true, -- sniper rifle
	[30] = true, -- AK-47
	[31] = true, -- M4
}

function handleRhinoDamage(attacker, weapon, loss, x, y, z, tire)
	if (weapon and getElementModel(source) == 432 and loss > 0) then
		if (weaponsToDamageRhino[weapon]) then
			setElementHealth(source, getElementHealth(source) - loss)
		end
	end
end
addEventHandler("onClientVehicleDamage", root, handleRhinoDamage)

This example will makes all vehicle Fireproof.

Click to collapse [-]

function fireproofvehicle(theAttacker, theWeapon)
	if(theWeapon == 37) then
		cancelEvent()
	end
end
addEventHandler("onClientVehicleDamage", getRootElement(), fireproofvehicle)
