SetVehicleHandling

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

This function is used to change the handling data of a vehicle.

Implemented also for client-sided vehicles.

Syntax

bool setVehicleHandling ( element theVehicle, string property, var value ) 

Syntaxes for reset configurations:

bool setVehicleHandling ( element theVehicle, string property, nil, false )  -- Reset one property to model handling value
bool setVehicleHandling ( element theVehicle, string property, nil, true )   -- Reset one property to GTA default value
bool setVehicleHandling ( element theVehicle, false )  -- Reset all properties to model handling value
bool setVehicleHandling ( element theVehicle, true )   -- Reset all properties to GTA default value

Required Arguments

  • theVehicle: The vehicle you wish to set the handling of.
  • property: The property you wish to set the handling of the vehicle to.


[[{{{image}}}|link=]] Note: For functionality reasons suspension modification is disabled on monster trucks, trains, boats and trailers.

handlingFlags Hexadecimal/Decimal N/A N/A Property uses a decimal value, generated by a hexadecimal value. Either use 0x12345678 or tonumber ( "0x12345678" ). See projectcerbera for possible values.
headLight String N/A N/A Get works, set is disabled. Available values: 'long', 'small', 'big', 'tall'.
tailLight String N/A N/A Get works, set is disabled. Available values: 'long', 'small', 'big', 'tall'.
animGroup Integer ?? ?? Get works, set is disabled due to people not knowing this property was vehicle-based and caused crashes.
  • value: The value of the property you wish to set the handling of the vehicle to.

Returns

Returns true if the handling was set successfully, false otherwise. See below a list of valid properties and their required values:

Example

This example will make Infernus handling very fast and also make it damage proof from collision (handling by Mr.unpredictable). this example will help you in creating your own vehicle Handling.

This example will add a command for players with which they can change the mass of the vehicle.
