Hello,
I want to create a camera mod, that saves the camera angle and zoom when leaving a vehicle and restores it when entering again. But I have no idea where to start.

Hi,

you can find the original scripts at:
http://ls-mods.de/scriptDocumentation.php

Propably you should check out:
VehicleCamera
( http://ls-mods.de/scriptDocumentation.php?lua_file=vehicles/VehicleCamera )
which is loaded by the Steerable specialization
( http://ls-mods.de/scriptDocumentation.php?lua_file=vehicles/specializations/Steerable )

So you have to read out the current values of the camera node(s) when the players exits the vehicle and set them when the vehicle is re-entered.

Cheers,
Emil

Hello,
how can I save these values in the savegame?

Hi,

there are two functions (of a specialization) which get called either during the saving process or during the loading process.

as an example you could have a look at the plough specialization:
http://ls-mods.de/scriptDocumentation.php?lua_file=vehicles/specializations/Plough

getSaveAttributesAndNodes
and
loadFromAttributesAndNodes

How these functions work should be obvious, i guess.

Regards,
Emil
