UT2004 :: Actor >> Triggers >> ONSVehicleEjectionTrigger(Package: custom)


This custom Triggers actor is designed to detect any ONSVehicles that come within a certain distance and if a driver is present it ejects the driver.

  • Optional damage can be applied to the driver : DriverDamage.
  • Optional damage to the vehicle : VehicleDamage.
  • Also the force of the ejection multiplied : EjectMultiplyer.
  • There are optional extra sound FX for when the ONSVehicleEjectionTrigger is touched by a valid/non-valid actor :RejectSoundFx/ValidContactSoundFxand.
  • Optional sound FX for the ejection itself.

Both the DamageTypes for the diver and the vehicle can also be set by the mapper.
