Car Horn (Framework)
Current version 1.1

-Fixed OffroadHatchback Internal Sound to match external.

Installing this mod will give a "Toot Horn" action to cars in DayZ. Warning: Infected are not happy when they hear it!
It also allows modders who create custom vehicles to set a custom horn sound for their vehicles for servers who use this mod (no dependency required).

Install the mod on your client and join a server that uses it!

Server Owners:
Install the mod on your client to download.
Right click on the mod in Launcher and Browse Files
Copy the @CarHorn directory to your DayZServer directory root
add -mod=@CarHorn to your launch parameters (or ;@CarHorn after other mods)
Copy CleetusV3.bikey from inside @CarHorn/keys to the Keys directory in the root of your DayZServer

NOTE: This is required on both client and server to function. I highly suggest verifySignatures=3; to be set in serverDZ.cfg.
Be sure to copy the provided Key from Keys to your Keys folder.

Vehicle Modders:
To provide support for your custom vehicles, you simply create a pair of SoundSets (internal muffled and external clear) in your config.cpp and add the following line to your CfgVehicles entry class for your vehicle:
hornSoundSetINT="myHornINTSoundSetName"; hornSoundSetEXT="myHornEXTSoundSetName";
It's as simple as that!.

Customizing existing horns
To edit an existing horn all you need to do is create a config.cpp and pack it into a pbo using this template sample:

Hi Cleetus, I would like to creat a own carhorn soundset and swap it with the existing Horn. Becouse I´m new to modding I have a few questions on how to do it. You wrote that I have to create a config.cpp an pack it. That meens i creat a own mod wich only contains the config.cpp and the new sounds, with your carhorn mod as a dependensy? What file type is used for the sounds, is that .ogg? And am I right that the different sound shaders have to be created manually? I would be realy happy if you find the time to give me further advise on how to properly do the customizing of existing horns. Thank you in advance, kind regards.

hello Cleetus

we may install your carhornmod on our server but change it beforehand so that only the police cars can use the sierre and the zievile vehicles cannot use their horns

Can you make one with police siron or let someone repack one it would be amazing since the police light crash servers.

@💎𝓩𝓸𝓶𝓫𝔂𝓒𝓩 - sorry, no.
@Lucky - It is an interaction action on the car when you're in the seat, not a hotkey
@TheBogiman - It doesn't create a folder as there are no external configurations for it.

Hey, this mod does not create a folder itself after installing it to my server? Could you give us an external link for it? Thanks

cool mod, but I can't work out how to change the honk key from F - if its possible to do so, why is F the default key, when that is the same key to open the car door and get out?

@Vash1598 It does work on 1.10. Fix your shit instead.
