[VEHICLE] [WIP] LSIA (LAX) Airport Maintenance Sadler (advice please)



  • So I'm working on some ground crew vehicles for the airport, first of which is a Sadler. But need some help...

    alt text alt text

    1. What would be the best way to have this spawn at the airport? Should I make it into it's own vehicle (eg Sadler3), or is there a way to have it spawn with this livery at the airport while spawning without liveries everywhere else.

    2. Making it into it's own vehicle sounds easier to me, if that's the case, is there a way to make sure it never spawns with the bullbars/pickup cover/lights without editing the model itself? carvariations.meta or something? Templated model is locked, though I probably could retemplate it myself if need be.

    3. Based design roughly on vehicles seen at LAX but not been able to find many photos. Any recommendations where I can find some?

    Any help hugely or feedback appreciated!



  • 1. I'd just create an airportveh add-on that holds your edited LAX vehicles. For this vehicle, you could name it sadlax. Then using popgroups.ymt you can refer to sadlax and only let it spawn in the specified zone. Look at this passage from popgroups.ymt. You could change the caddy here to sadlax, and you're done!
    Via this method you can easily add lines for other vehicles you want to spawn in the specified zone. Inside the vehicles.meta you can specify the variations of peds that drive the vehicles so a set of edited personnel with LAX uniforms can drive them (you could even add those peds to the add-on...same as the guys from RDE did).

    		<Name>NATIVE_ZON_ONLY</Name>
    		<models>
    			<Item><Name>airtug</Name><Variations type="NULL"/></Item>
    			<Item><Name>ripley</Name><Variations type="NULL"/></Item>
    			<Item><Name>caddy</Name><Variations type="NULL"/></Item>
    		</models>
    		<flags>POPGROUP_AMBIENT POPGROUP_SCENARIO</flags>
    

    2. Spawn without extras on the car is controlled in vehicles.meta inside the add-on you create:

      <extraIncludes> <Item>EXTRA_5</Item>  </extraIncludes>
    

    or

      <extraIncludes />
    

    3. Hmmm, I can find more photos of Kim Kardashian at LAX than actual service vehicles :P Maybe ask a resident of LA?



  • @ReNNie Thanks for the quick response! Yeah I was thinking along those lines. Creating an add on seems to be the way to go. Sounds simple enough the way you've answered. Will give that a try.

    Really tricky finding photos! Will just have to exercise some creative freedom I think.
