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. See example events.xml file[] (Thx ^kätzchen for this example)

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

Is there a way to prevent car covers being ruined. Seems to be an issue with players griefing covered vehicles
Sandstrüm May 13 @ 6:28am 
I know....nevermind...
Hunterz  [author] May 13 @ 6:26am 
its different object, it have nothing to do with vehicle lifetime, vehicle is different object
Sandstrüm May 13 @ 6:25am 
Thanks for the reply, yes I understand that they are separate. This lends to my question, if for example, I make the lifetime of "Volga_Cover" in the carcover types to be 2 days, after 2 day of not being touched, will that expiration effect the vehicle that it is covering, therefore despawn the vehicle? The point being, if a vehicle lifetime was maxed at 3888000, would it be overwritten by that car's carcover of 172800?Therefore, players would lose the vehicle at 172800 (2 days) instead of the 3888000 (45 days)?

covered vehicle with carcover is different game object than vehicle, both have different types.xml entry, jusch check files shipped with mod
Hunterz  [author] May 13 @ 4:44am 
carcover object just represent covered vehicle and have own lifetime - see types.xml. Most of server admins make longer lifetime for covered cars and shorter for normal uncovered vehicle.
Sandstrüm May 13 @ 4:27am 
Is the lifetime of the carcover conected to the lifetime of the vehicle? If I have the carcover set for 2 day lifetime, after the 2 days, the vehicle will despawn with the carcover? I am wanting to control the lifetimes of the vehicles we have on the server. So if a vehicle utilizes a car cover the lifetime of that vehicle is then controlled by the carcover lifetime and not the vehicle lifetimes?

hmm, mistake... will be fixed in next update
