Harder Hotwire

This mod is mostly useful for multiplayer when cars are enabled.
Current vanilla skill level requirements of 1 Electrical and 2 Mechanics can be gained with perks from the very start, so many newcomers to servers can hotwire and take others' cars without significant effort.
As a bonus the mod has an ability to revert damage done to the cars and even craft a key if your skills are high enough.

Project Zomboid: 40.43, 41.64, 41.77.
Other mods: mods that overwrite ISVehicleMenu.showRadialMenu will be incompatible.

New Skill Requirements
  • Metalworking: 1;
  • Electrical: 4;
  • Mechanics: 6;
  • Time: 200.
Metalworking is now required in addition to upped Electrical and Mechanics levels as a person should be able to at least know his way with metal to open ignition in most cases.

  • Metalworking: 4;
  • Electrical: 6;
  • Mechanics: 8;
  • Time: 900.
Increased requirements. You should not only be able to revert the damage done to electrical circuits, but also put the lock back in place and weld it all together.

Craft Car Key
  • Metalworking: 8;
  • Electrical: 10;
  • Mechanics: 10;
  • Time: 2100.
Overkill? Maybe. But consider that each player now can craft keys if they pass the checks and even become a key dealer on the server - a feature that only administrator could do previously.

For the time being this mod has full translations to following languages:
  • English (EN)
  • Russian (RU)
If you'd like to translate this mod, send me your translation file and I will add it with credits in-place.

can we get a key craft standalone? because that's some masochistic levels of skill grinding

Мод очень крутой! Но некорректно работает с модом W900 Semi-Truck, радиальная менюшка накладывается и из за него не цепляется цистерна или контейнер, а так в целом вообще всё замечательно

Классный мод но есть минус это что роль взломщик отныне не дает бонус взлома, но при этом остается такой же дорогой по очкам. Возможно стоит добавить 1 электрик и 2 механик ему, чтобы хоть так компенсировать стоимость и позволить все же быстрее достигать взлома машин, как и полагается роли.

I love this mod, but I would change some stuffs. May I make my own version of this mod?

I know that it's stated in the compatibility section of the mod, but I just wanted to point out for anyone else who may have both mods that this mod breaks the Agrotsar Farming mod. A shame that I'll have to remove this mod as I really liked it, but that's my fault for not reading the description thoroughly enough. Regardless this mod was fun while it lasted for me!

@Ankha он конфликтует с модами, которые влияют на круговое меню транспорта. Типа Агростара.

@Ankha, у нас на боевом сервере на актуальной версии 41.77 работает. И на 41.73 работал. Скорее всего какой-то мод конфликтует.
Ankha Oct 15, 2022 @ 12:07pm 
Этот мод совместим лишь с версией 41.64?
У меня просто на версии 41.73 не робит
