How to Make a Carbomb

by silversound

Yes I did. And it works. Just don't honk the horn unless the guy in front of you really has it comming. BOOM!

 

Editing the Objects.rfa directly

This is the small tweak I did to the Lada Civilian Car. It turns the horn into a proper weapon. I simply slapped the;
ObjectTemplate.ProjectileTemplate SCUD-BRocketS into the CarHorn FireArm.

From: c:\...\...\OBJECTS\vehicles\land\common\weapons.con

rem *** CarHorn ***
ObjectTemplate.create FireArms Carhorn
ObjectTemplate.setNetworkableInfo PlaneFireArmInfo
ObjectTemplate.loadSoundScript Sounds/CarHorn.ssc
ObjectTemplate.projectileTemplate SCUD-BRocket
ObjectTemplate.projectilePosition 0/0/0
ObjectTemplate.magSize -1
ObjectTemplate.numOfMag 1
ObjectTemplate.magType 0
ObjectTemplate.fireOnce 1
ObjectTemplate.reloadtime 1
ObjectTemplate.roundOfFire 1
ObjectTemplate.AmmoType   6
ObjectTemplate.velocity 0

rem *** HummerHorn ***
ObjectTemplate.create FireArms Hummerhorn
ObjectTemplate.setNetworkableInfo PlaneFireArmInfo
ObjectTemplate.loadSoundScript Sounds/HummerHorn.ssc
ObjectTemplate.projectilePosition 0/0/0
ObjectTemplate.magSize -1
ObjectTemplate.numOfMag 1
ObjectTemplate.magType 0
ObjectTemplate.fireOnce 1
ObjectTemplate.reloadtime 1
ObjectTemplate.roundOfFire 1
ObjectTemplate.AmmoType 6
ObjectTemplate.velocity 0

rem *** TruckHorn ***
ObjectTemplate.create FireArms Truckhorn
ObjectTemplate.setNetworkableInfo PlaneFireArmInfo
ObjectTemplate.loadSoundScript Sounds/TruckHorn.ssc
ObjectTemplate.projectilePosition 0/0/0
ObjectTemplate.magSize -1
ObjectTemplate.numOfMag 1
ObjectTemplate.magType 0
ObjectTemplate.fireOnce 1
ObjectTemplate.reloadtime 1
ObjectTemplate.roundOfFire 1
ObjectTemplate.AmmoType 6
ObjectTemplate.velocity 0

I also beefed up the SCUD projectile splash effect from 50 to 150 so as to get one hell of a blast from the Lada. But that makes the real SCUD a MONSTER.

This works as a server-side script.

 

Editing a map .rfa only

If you only want the carbomb on a certain map, the following code can be added to the bottom of your ObjectSpawnTemplates.con file in your map .rfa:

 

ObjectTemplate.Active Carhorn
ObjectTemplate.projectileTemplate SCUD-BRocket
ObjectTemplate.projectilePosition 0/0/0 

FireDelay Option:

ObjectTemplate.Active Carhorn
ObjectTemplate.projectileTemplate SCUD-BRocket
ObjectTemplate.projectilePosition 0/0/0
ObjectTemplate.FireDelay 10

FireDelay will delay the ignition of the SCUD by the number of seconds

Increasing the Radius of the SCUD Explosion (NOTE: this affects the realk SCUD rocket too!)

ObjectTemplate.Active SCUD-BRocket
ObjectTemplate.radius 100

Some other projectiles to use besides the SCUDB-Rocket (From BF1942):

 

      Torpedo
      AircraftTorpedo
      FighterBomb
      DiveBomberBomb
      HeavyBomberBomb

 

Changing the Damage SCUD does

This can be done to any of the above listed projectiles. Just follow the same procedure, but replace SCUD-BRocket with the Projectiles above.

Materials 854 and 852 are unused materials, and we go ahead and create them (server side only) and this will allow us to adjust the damage they do to certain materials (for more information, see the Tweaking the Damage System).

The following code can be added to the end of your ObjectSpawnTemplates.con file in your map rfa. The values are the normal SCUD values

ObjectTemplate.Active Carhorn
ObjectTemplate.projectileTemplate SCUD-BRocket
ObjectTemplate.projectilePosition 0/0/0
