Damage for HL2 Vehicles

Hello, and welcome to my very first original public add-on for Garry's Mod!

This is a simple script that adds health to vehicles and the ability to damage them, i am surprised how no one has ever made this before.
Initially i wanted to make it be able to damage the vehicles on physical impact as well but it did not really work out...
But don't worry, this may become a feature in the future once i figure it out!

Anyway, this mod features:

- Adjustable health / damage system for the jeep, airboat and even the jalopy from Half-Life 2: Episode 2!
- Console command.
- Visualizer for damage (the vehicles will become gradually more scorched / darker as they take damage).
- Fiery explosion effect (once the vehicle reaches 0 hp, it will burn for a few moments before exploding, signaling you to stand back from an imminent explosion).
- Detailed vehicle gibbing that uses gibs from the vehicle models themselves with some randomized additional gibs shared across all vehicle types.
- Random chance of items such as SMG ammo boxes and suit batteries being expelled from the vehicles when exploding and gibbing.
- Optimization (only 4mb filesize, and checks were added in the code in order to make the action run only when the requirements are met, additionally, the vehicle gibs have no collision and despawn after 10 seconds)
- NEW! If a vehicle is destroyed while a player is driving it, there will be a chance of some bones and other body parts being expelled from the vehicle, so keep an eye out for any skulls, spines and legs!

Console command: set_vehicle_health (the default is 100, but i have clamped it to 100, so you can only decrease the health for now, i may change this in a future update and if there is a demand for this change to happen)

Potential upcoming features in the future:
- Options tab for adjusting the vehicle health without the need of running a command on the server, for convenience.
- Command/option for controlling the item drop chance when a vehicle explodes.
- A way to heal vehicles (probably through a SWEP).
- Vehicles getting damage on physical impact proportional to acceleration and velocity (if i manage to figure it out).

Credit to for the models of the jeep and airboat parts, and to for the models of the jalopy parts.

If you encounter bugs or have suggestions whether if it's for this mod or an idea for a new mod that i should make, let me know in the comments!

Either way, i hope you enjoy this, and stay tuned for more mods!

I uncompressed the textures for the jalopy gibs, now it's a bit heavier

well, would you rather have like 20mb just for a damage mod?
Virgiliu314  [author] Jul 13 @ 4:24am 
it does?

why this addon makes the jalopy low quality?
