hey i was wondering cause it looks like we are going to still have the fuel feature which is great so why not a tow truck system.
Would it be possible to take the tow truck from san andreas and put it in vice or mod a car to work like a tow truck that when u run completely out of fuel and ur in a year that has gas stations u press a key combo that calls the tow truck service and they tow u to the nearest gas station or you can leave your delorean or car where it is then go find the car with the towing capabilities and tow it your self?

Just thought maybe that would help the people who didnt really want the fuel feature in because then it would make it easy for them to get to a gas station in years that have them and it would add more realism for the players that did want the fuel feature in (like me).

so would this at all be possible?

it won't work like sa, and the car won't be angled, and at some points, it might be floating or stuck in the ground depending on the incline.

can't you code the angled part?

Aug 9 2007, 8:50pm Anchor

nope. VC does not support angles at all for vehicles using a teleporting method.

teleporting ok what if you drive the tow truck

in order to tow, the car has to be constantly be teleporting behind the truck.

Now this is heavy... means if lybians try to chase you :) They'll disappear?

Aug 10 2007, 7:17am Anchor

good point. Any car that comes in contact with the car behind the tow truck WILL dissapear.
