by VitalOverdose

Overview[edit]

A is a modified Decoration that reacts when hit by a vehicle. There is no static mesh for this actor and it wont block the vehicle in any way . When the ONSVehicleFXTagger is triggered it will spawn an emitter and hard attach it to the actor that initiated the event (the vehicle) and any other vehicles inside a radius that can be set by the mapper : TagRadius.

Game use[edit]

This is great for adding realism when a vehicle drives though fire or across lava etc.

SFX Emitters[edit]

The ONSVehicleFXTagger can be used as a 'spawner' for any of the SFX emitter scripts which where designed to reduce the workload on this actor for complicated special FX by getting the emitter actor to act as a kind of controller of the vehicle its attached to for the duration of its life.

  • SFXSelfScaling Particles that automatically scale to the actor they are attached to.
  • SFXUltraLight Particles that can change the weight of an ONSVehicle for a set amount of time allowing it to be boosted over longer distances.
