This mod add new feature - cover car with camo net or tarp. Covered car prevents disappearing during server restarts, because its static object without physics. Covered cars can help boost server performance. (adjust spawn rate - see below)

When is car uncovered, its restored to original state:

- car body damage
- locking state of attachments
- fluids
- attachments (of course inventory of attachments)
- car inventory (all entities like weapon with all attachments and their state)
- locking state of car (Trader keys ,MuchCarKey, CarLock(TraderPlus) and Expansion with addon mod supported)
- Expansion users should use this addon mod (adding compatibility with exp keys) Thx LAVA for creating it.

How it works[]

Right now are supported vanilla cars and some modded cars, but mod is extendable and prepared.
On server is a config file with definiton which car is covered by which cover type and offset for mispositioned car models. CarCover recognize Basic Territory mod - its needed setup permission who can cover/uncover vehicles. Covered vehicles are visible on CFTools/Gamelabs admin map.

Installation: on server side just add mod, config file will be generated. Also dont forget copy key file to keys directory on server. Because mod adding new objects, of course must be installed on client and server too. Add -mod=@CarCover to server startup options. Dont forget add entries from example types.xml - its for persistency of covers on map and of course spawning winter variant of camo net and tarp.
Recommended is extending lifetime of cars - default vanilla 3 seconds is insufficient and can cause problems. Set cars lifetime to something like 3888000
If needed, adjust spawn rate of cars on server too.

I will not support payed crap vehicles like psycho which by malicious scripts broke other vehicle mods or nightwolf helis which contains backdoor.
CarCover is free mod and will support only free vehicles.


Others cars will be added step by step...

First is needed some model of cover. Then define new class in config.cpp which will be based on CarCoverBase.
Good example is TrolleyKart. Just look into config.cpp Then you can create mod with new cover and make it depends on this mod.

There are reference mod - thx to Wolfskymoon.
or another reference mod - thx to Tech
or French Panhard by Sfmplayer
or RedFalcon helis by Nutter
or RusForma Vehicles by DopeSmokez420
or CarsVanillaPlus by Doc
