 Vehicle:SetVehicleParams( )

Contents

Description

Sets the vehicle parameters for given vehicle.

NOTE

Not all variables from the VehicleParams structure can be set.

BUG

Because this method uses miles per hour but Vehicle:GetVehicleParams returns Hammer units per second, this method incorrectly modifies the vehicle engine's "boostMaxSpeed", "maxRevSpeed" and "maxSpeed" even when not explicitly set in a call to this method.

Workaround: In order to retain the original values for these fields, call Vehicle:GetVehicleParams yourself, convert the mentioned fields from Hammer units per second to miles per hour (1 MPH ≈ 17.6 HU/s in this case) and add them to the table passed into the call to this setter. Avoid doing this repeatedly to avoid floating point inaccuracies over time (store the ready-calculated value for next time if possible).

Issue Tracker: #2625

Arguments

table params

The new new vehicle parameters. See VehicleParams structure

Examples

Example

Adds 25 horsepower to every vehicle spawned.

hook.Add("PlayerSpawnedVehicle", "VehicleParamsExample", function(ply, ent)

    local params = ent:GetVehicleParams()


    params.engine.horsepower = params.engine.horsepower + 25


    ent:SetVehicleParams(params)

end)
