SetVehicleGravity

From Multi Theft Auto: Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Sets the gravity vector of a vehicle. The vehicle will fall in this direction, and the camera of any occupants will also be rotated to match it. Can be used for e.g. driving on walls or upside down on ceilings.

Syntax

bool setVehicleGravity ( vehicle theVehicle, float x, float y, float z )

Required Arguments

  • theVehicle: the vehicle of which to change the gravity.
  • x, y, z: the components of the new gravity vector. If this vector has length 1, the strength of the gravity will be same as the global gravity for other entities. If it is 2, it will be twice as strong, etc.

Returns

Returns true if successful, false otherwise.

Example

This example will set 0 gravity to the vehicle if a local player enters it

addEventHandler("onClientVehicleEnter",getRootElement(),function(thePlayer)
	if (thePlayer == localPlayer) then -- if thePlayer is localPlayer
		local gravity = setVehicleGravity(source,0,0,0) -- Set the gravity
		if (gravity) then -- If the gravity was set succesfully
			local gravity_pos = Vector3(getVehicleGravity(source)) -- get the gravity vector
			outputChatBox("Gravity was set to "..gravity_pos.x.." "..gravity_pos.y.." "..gravity_pos.z,0,255,0) -- output to chat
		end
	end
end)
