Stronger Car Glass/Windshield mod. Please help.

  • Hey guys, I really want to figure out this glass and windshield thing with the vehicles. I know it has something to do with the deformation, but is there a way to make it so that the glass on the cars doesn't break as easily? I actually want to make it so that the windshield never breaks, more like in GTA IV. I don't think its realistic that when I have a tiny fender bender that my windshield explodes. So anyone with experience in this, please help me. I will do the work, I just need to know where else to look. I can't seem to find this in the handling files which is where the deformation is located. Please help.

  • bump, please help guys.

  • Seriously, no one has even a clue of how to do this?

  • Change ID of windows in polygon mode in for collision objects in Zmodeler to 123.
    Explained here: http://forum.zmodeler2.com/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=7349&sid=258b78038390804a48f98a379e8c3cfb

  • @CP What about increasing the overall health of the traffic vehicles? Im using Real Vehicle Damage by TrophyHunter & Im trying to make it so every car isnt instantly exploding after being hit. I know I would have to go in & change each vehicles values manually. Do you know what file/files Im looking for? I have no addon/replace vehicles.

  • I have no idea, sorry.

  • Thank you guys for responding.
    @CP So are you saying that I would need to do this Zmod for each and every car?

    I am also using a higher deformation and this is what is causing the instant windshield exploding out, but there has got to be something specifically for the glass right?

    I have no idea why Rockstar would think this would be realistic. I have seen hundreds of accidents and I have never once seen a windshield fully explode out. If it were to come off, it usually stays together in a broken sheet.

  • Yes, you have to do it for every car. But Zmodeler is unreliable and buggy, there is no alternative for now.

  • @CP

    What is the file that is being edited in zmod. Is there some way to edit this file with notepad outside zmod such as like a handling file or vehicle file?

  • @Spitfire7 i think there was a flag you could put in vehicles.meta file to make the windows undistructible. But sadly ibcant find it anymore. I'll let you know if i findout. May be someone else remembers?

  • @yeahhmonkey not exactly the one i was talking about. But i am sure this would work better. Thanks. I think you just helped him out.

  • @yeahhmonkey i usually prefer making the glass unbreakable in Zmodeler 3 :P but yes. This flag thing is very useful in many cases. such as a locked model.

  • Wow, thank you both so much. So it looks like there are a few things you guys are referring to that might help.




    Does the RWINDOW COLLISION refer to "R"ear window or is that both?
    I would assume Disable through windscreen would be the action of flying through it no?
    Bulletproof glass referring to bullets only?

    I will give all these a shot. Have you guys tried these yet? Thank you guys so so much. I really appreciate it.
    Trying to remember where my vehicle files are at again in all the new file system of GTA V.

    FLAG_HAS_BULLETPROOF_GLASS i checked it. and even an rpg can't brake the glass. vehicle impacts don't crash it either.

    You rock man, thank you. Any way to make all cars have this flag really fast? I know there are handling editors, but the generally don't allow you to add flags. Any ideas?

  • @FoxtrotDelta and @Spitfire7 Sorry I joined the party late. I have read the entire thread found the vehicles.meta file which is located in Grand Theft Auto V\mods\update\update.rpf\common\data\levels\gta5
    however, after adding these 3 lines

    to the flags it still did not achieve bulletproof glass. Am I doing something wrong? It is a modded car (added. not replaced) I am dealing with:

    I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you in advance.
