Hello,
I need a script that does the following:
  • Changes the charset of the boat vehicle only when the first actor (i.e. the player character) is inside the vehicle.
  • Reverts back to the original graphic as soon as the same actor has exited the vehicle.
  • Doesn't contain any other vehicle features.
Does anyone know if this script exists anywhere?

Thanks in advance!

@quackgyver Not quite perfect, yet. But give this a try : Transform Vehicle 1.00
Oh thank you! That's very kind of you.

One thing though, it doesn't always seem to catch all cases of getting on/off.

Also, it seems that the vehicle changes direction before making the switch, effectively making it look like there's a short flicker.

I've attached a GIF to illustrate what I mean.

@quackgyver Hmm, do you have version 1.00? Or 1.01? I did a quick update so perhaps you missed that update.

Yeah I've indeed been using 1.01, so the problem seems to persist there.

I think you can reproduce it by just doing various rapid combinations of walking, running, sailing and getting on/off.

My hunch is that it seems to be related to getting off the boat right after having moved with the boat.

@quackgyver what if you put a 1-2 wait frames when getting out and getting in?
does it persist still?

entering a vehicle (that isvisible on the map) is an event. if you exit it, the boat is left
behind which is also an event (correct me if im wrong).

@quackgyver Yeah, I have very rapidly entered and exited all of the vehicles and I cannot seem to reproduce the issue. I will poke around and tinker a bit more.


EDIT: I don't suppose there is any event running in the background that might be changing the graphic?
