1 - Open vegasE.IPL in Wordpad and change the 'timy1' line in the 'grge' section so it reads like so;-
2389.6, 1483.26, 9.81843, 2398.11, 1483.26, 2389.6, 1497.84, 15.6841, 1, 5, timy1
2 - In tonywob's IPL editor, I repositioned the 'vgsEspdr01' object (the garage door) so it was set like this;-
PositionX = 2393.77
PositionY = 1483.69
PositionZ = 12.7109
RotationX = 0
RotationY = -360
RotationZ = -90
If you want to redistribute it, you'll have to make sure to include 'vegasE.IPL Stream 7' from your GTA3.IMG file as thats where the door is amended.
You still get the 'slight' COL problem just inside the garage door where its technically possible (but tricky) to descend into blue hell, but with those settings above I found the problem was minimised.
Hope that helps!

|In the PS2 version, the tattoo parlor in San Fierro took you to Los Santos instead of San Fierro. That error was fixed in the PC version.|
Was that an error? I always thought it was done on purpose because the San Fierro one had hidden tattoos in it. Then in the PC version they just unlocked it for the sake of it. But then again, maybe your idea sounds more realistic .
@DeeZire - Ah, i remember when you PMed me with that info, will come in handy again, because i lost all the info when my computer wad formatted. Thanks again .

|Yes it was an error. It was just a simple misnaming. Why would anyone want two of the same tattoo parlors in the game?|
Yep, i know, i guess i must have read it somewhere. I just always thought there was a reason for it. But like i said, your idea sounds more realistic. . Sorry bout that.

50 = helicopter blade
51 = explosion
52 = 058A create gunshot
54 = hit by object, damaged by falling
56 = fist, gift, melee weapons
57 = ANY weapon that shoots something

And does it apply to 031E (vehicles) too?
Posted 14 August 2006 - 02:58 PM
The numbers are the same for actors. I just discovered the "object_hit_by_weapon" opcode and I'm going to test it out later.
For some reason, the Vortex is a special type of vehicle. It's in a category by itself.

object_hit_by_weapon is gonna be useful for 'manual' SCM object destruction.
Also, sorry for not testing myself, but do these opcodes still work if the 'thing' was immune to that damage (explosion-proof etc)? Will make them even more useful.
Also that reminds me, no ID for fire damage? You could use the molotov/flamethrower weapon IDs first, but what about 'explosion-fire' etc. Perhaps 53/55?
And thanks for all your contributions, they help a lot.
Posted 21 August 2006 - 02:52 PM
The object_hit_by opcode is wierd.
50 - vehicle
51 - explosion
56 - fist, melee, gift weapons
57 - any weapon that shoot something

This is incorrect. I realize it happening during Vigilante appears that way, but it is actually your criminal rating. This comes with the additional discovery that 0433 (unknown since GTA3!) is actor_is_criminal. Now I don't know what stat is actually criminals killed, but I know it's incremented automatically as it always has been thanks to a 0433 marked actor dieing. More specifically: dieing by your hands. At least SA was just proven to make the differentiation.

This is incorrect.
Well it is correct :
Try it yourslef you'll see that the game tell you that 152 IS that.
There might stats not correct but this one seems good.
I don't know what the criminals killed (all the time not only on Vigilante) stat number neither, the increments might be hardcoded anyway.
[EDIT]: I've forgot to say Dem, that I love the black and white girls of TFB they're just so nice, and so beautiful. Actually all your signature girls are just so nice !!!!!!!! But I must admit that the TFB ones have took my fancy !!!!! Thanks for that and for everything else.

Speaking of confusion, the Unleashed / CommUNITY pair of sigs are very old school. The first came in Sept 2004 IIRC. I'm only reusing them because somebody shared it with me in my 30K topic. They only link to TFB because my TFB sig did and it was faster to update But thanks for the appreciation. The Unleashed one took some time to make and I really liked the shadowed outcome. So did she

|0506: set_vehicle_model #PONY next_variation 0 0|
Variant -1 is the default model with no extras. Variants 0 through 5 are possible extra variants which will fall back to the default if the model doesn't have that many extras, and variants greater than 5 will crash the game.
For most vehicles, only one extra can be added so both the second and third parameters should be set to the same wanted variant to avoid confusion. However, some vehicles can have 2 different extras active. I have only noticed this so far for some of the motorcycles (BF400, FCR900, NRG500) which can have both an exhaust variant (0,1,2) and a fairing variant (3,4) added. So in those cases you can specify both extras in the parameters. For example, to have a BF-400 with dual exhausts and the larger fairing, you would use:
|0506: set_vehicle_model #BF400 next_variation 2 4|
The game's traffic spawner seems to always give these bikes one of the exhaust variants, but the fairing extras are sometimes omitted.
Additionally, for some vehicle models, the game's traffic spawner will always add an extra and so you'd never see the default variant (-1) unless you explicitly spawn it. This seems to apply to the hotring and bloodring cars which always have a number and may apply to other models as well. For example, the slamvan may always spawn with one of the two steering wheel extras but I didn't really feel like trying to check that.
Note that these were originally found by searching the vehicle model files for the strings "extra1" through "extra6" and then checking them in-game with an SCM vehicle spawner; I used a little reference help from an old SA section topic posted by Sweets to find out what some of the extras were. In a couple cases, I was unable to determine what the actual extra is; someone who can actually view the model in a modeling program might be able to determine those. The first column is the model id shortcut used by some compilers and the second column is the actual vehicles.ide ID for that vehicle in the original game.

EDIT: (13 Oct) Realized that the reason the opcode has 2 variant parameters is because some motorcycle models actually can spawn with two extras added, so I expanded on the intro to cover that.

1. The first parameter is useless. This opcode sets a variation of next created car independently from the model specified there.
|0506: set_vehicle_model 0 next_variation 2 2|
would save one byte in scm

Traintypes model sets:
These model sets could easily be changed via SCM using this method. It allows to create really long trains
I posted memory addresses for that.

I'm adding this because it confounded the hell out me for three hours - why does my actor keep trying to drive even if I tell it not to? I think this is why.
From the VCDB:
P: $carID, int (pedtype), #model, $actorID - creates an actor in the driverseat (spawn_actor)
Here's the pedtypes (Vice; SA adds a couple more at the end):
|0=player1 / 1=player2 / 2=player3 / 3=player4 / 4=civmale / 5=civfemale / 6=cop / 7=gang1 / 8=gang2 / 9=gang3 / 10=gang4 / 11=gang5 / 12=gang6 / 13=gang7 / 14=gang8 / 15=gang9 / 16=emergency / 17=fireman / 18=criminal / 19=special|
(I'll assume this applies to SA, since the opcodes are the same, although I haven't tested it there yet.)
Anywho, if you set the pedtype to 4, the driver will do nothing. If you change it to 16 (emergency), the actor will try to find the closest path to drive on REGARDLESS OF WHAT VEHICLE COMMANDS YOU GIVE (like setting the behavior to 0, max speed to 0, etc).
The other interesting part is that the ped type seemingly must be correctly applied to the proper ped loaded. So loading a ped type of 5 with a male ped crashes the game. I'm guessing that the pedtypes have to be matched up right with the peds you are loading. HOWEVER, ped type 4 seems to be universal, as I can spawn male or female peds with it. I couldn't find this documented anywhere, hence the post.
Hope this is useful to someone.
EDIT: Fixed the ped type from 4 to 5 in the explaination. Sorry, I was sleepy when I wrote it!

| It is easier to use "TrainLimiter"|
You can set your own train with 14 carriages
That's not really the point of his post, which is to document how to create trains via the SCM.
And I'm quite shocked I missed space's variables update. Been looking for something like this FOREVER. Thanks a bunch for that. For anyone else, if you use op9080's SA Loader, you have to define your global and local variables with numbers (i.e. G PLAYER_CHAR(2), PLAYER_ACTOR(3), etc). So that list space made a few pages back should be invaluable to those using this hook. Cheers buddy!

And thanks for that updated list. I'm using 3000-3150 and have had NO issues thus far. Yay!
