Please use setElementAngularVelocity instead.

bool setVehicleTurnVelocity ( vehicle theVehicle, float rx, float ry, float rz )           

OOP Syntax Help! I don't understand this!

Method: vehicle:setTurnVelocity(...)
Variable: .turnVelocity
Counterpart: getVehicleTurnVelocity

Required Arguments

  • theVehicle: The vehicle to apply the spin to.

Returns true if it was succesful, false otherwise.


function onColShapeHit ( thePlayer, matchingDimension )
    -- When a player hits the collision shape, check if he's in a vehicle
    local playerVehicle = getPedOccupiedVehicle ( thePlayer )
    if playerVehicle ~= false then
        -- If so, give it a spin
        setVehicleTurnVelocity ( playerVehicle, 0, 0, 20 )
addEventHandler ( "onColShapeHit", getRootElement ( ), onColShapeHit )
