i know you are putting in Docs truck (the one that he put the DeLorean in) but my question is will it have the ability to lower and raise the back and put cars in the back?

Jul 30 2007, 2:53pm Anchor

heh i was wondering about that my self too would be cool but i doubt if coz no cars in vice have that ability

Jul 30 2007, 2:55pm Anchor

i know that would be awesome

Jul 30 2007, 3:12pm Anchor

As far as I know, this function had not appeared untill San Andreas, so I'd say...No.

Jul 30 2007, 4:27pm Anchor

ok well thats a bummer but i hope it can be done

Jul 30 2007, 4:50pm Anchor

wait how do you know as far as i know your not on the modding team!?!?!?

Jul 30 2007, 5:28pm Anchor

yeh that is true, but i think he's right on this one though

Jul 30 2007, 6:14pm Anchor

It was never introduced until SA, so no. We'll just cheat and include the delorean as an extra, but don't expect it to behaive right. After all, truck-trailer support wasn't added until SA either.

Jul 30 2007, 7:14pm Anchor

thats bogus

Jul 30 2007, 7:31pm Anchor

yeah i know i kinda can get the car in the back nbut the wheels go through the walls and when i floor it the car trys to fall out but instead the van catches fire and explodes like it was geting damaged by the car in the back

It's more weird when it starts jumping insane.

ermu could use a lorry... make it smaller and then to open it get in the truck and press something and then it turns into the smaller truck (the original isnt a truck) so u could drive it in and out but im unsure if u make it change like the delorean how would it stay? you can figure that one out if its a good idea (=

Delorean88us, it could be done with a truck that has an object on it's back (through SCM coding), by coordinates (placing them minus something behind the truck) and moving the object (where the coordinates are), then to make it open or change position or rotation, but I'm not sure if that's possible but I remember so. But that might delay the script a lot because it has to be updated all the time, dunno

I'm afraid The vehicle in the back will hop out during transformation. Or just disappear.

Aug 9 2007, 5:36am Anchor

if you recall the flying delorean in hover mode, dropping it on a vehicle would cause it to disappear, because it was teleporting to the same location as that vehicle and overwrote it. The hoverboard is like that too and thats why it is so far back. Putting a car within a truck by code would cause the truck to disappear

Aug 9 2007, 5:53am Anchor

could you just put a marker inside the truck? so that if you drove it in the truck model would change to one with the delorean in or the door closed?

Aug 9 2007, 11:00am Anchor

I'm afraid that if you push the truck, the marker will stay the same.

Aug 9 2007, 1:35pm Anchor

But what if it is a scene where it is droven into the truck, which is actually an object, deletes the object when fading out and creates the truck with the back closed?

Aug 9 2007, 6:05pm Anchor

marker's won't work. Worked with fuel feature with the delorean. Even though the place where you fuel it is always behind the delorean, the marker stays in one position (the pink cylinder).

More like spawning, but then there is a huge problem in actually driving the delorean out. Now that part isn't possible. I'm sure i can drive the delorean in, hit some button to delete the delorean and truck, and create a truck with delorean extra in it. But when it comes to taking it out, the whole car teleport erase thing kinda kills it.

Aug 9 2007, 6:19pm Anchor

have a value 1 or 2 if its 1 delorean inside if its 2 there isnt and if there is and u press certain keys the animation for the delorean coming out starts???

Aug 9 2007, 8:13pm Anchor

animations only apply to peds, not objects. Fact still remains that spawning something in the truck will delete the truck itself.

Aug 10 2007, 4:47am Anchor

y don't u spawn it ouside of it, like screen goes dark then reappears with it out, that eliminates 2 problems, 1 getting the car out and 2 the erase problem

Aug 10 2007, 5:47am Anchor

then there is no point in having the delorean in the truck, since doc would never have the doors open. And obviously i can't animate that.
