Lesh's Towing Mod


Lesh's Tow mod allows for towing of vehicles by other vehicles.

The goal is to provide a framework for towing so that various mod makers can allow their users to use their vehicles with towing without having to bundle your own towing solution with the mod. Much like what ASDG Joint Rails does for weapons and attachments.

I have been hacking away at many different methods to achieve smooth and believable towing. And after a year of working on the project on and off I have finally reached a solution that satisfies me.

The functions are written completely from scratch. However i'd like to aknowledge Rundll's excellent work on the original goto towing script for providing me with insight to the problem and a place to start from.

How does it work

Very simply you grab a vehicle that is capable of towing and drive it in front of a vehicle that is capable of being towed. By pressing Shift+B the towing commences and your good to go. To stop the towing just hit Shift+B again.

If you are not quite in position to tow but close 2 spheres will appear for guidance for several seconds. When the spheres are lined up pressing Shift+B should initiate towing.

The mod doesn't require any setup in the mission. Just running the mod is enough to enable towing in scenarios.

Hey, I can't add this Mod to my Server, because the Key is outdated I believe. Would be nice if you could fix that. :)

I'm not that good with scripts, where do i need to input the fix for firewills f-16? had a read and have no clue where to put this:
LESH_canBeTowed = 1;
LESH_towFromFront = 1;
LESH_AxisOffsetTarget[] = {0,8,-0.75};
LESH_WheelOffset[] = {0,-2};

Any update on key?

Hi Leshrack,
any idea when can we expect the update for the fixed key? Disabled key check is causing issues in dedicated servers..

@Devastator Having the same issue on our server

I did a key verification via DSUtils and here is the result.
I think you need to resign the files and some servers like mine which does key check will not suffer :(
