I have a sliding gate on my modmap and im trying to automate opening and closing.

I first tried it as an animated object. The trigger is working fine if i press the specified button but i would like the door to open automatically on approaching the trigger.

<animatedObject index="BayWa_Gate">
<sound file="maps/sounds/OpenGateDoorSound.wav" pitchOffset="1.00" volume="0.50" indoorVolumeFactor="0.55" indoorLowpassGain="0.85" pitchMax="1.15" />
<animation initialTime="0" duration="3" >
<part node="1"> <!-- node -> child index -->
<keyFrame time="0.05" translation="0 0 0" /> <!-- translation, rotation, scale, visibility -->
<keyFrame time="1.00" translation="13.5 0 0" />

Alternatively, I tried the SlideDoorTrigger script. Which is also working but not with a Vehicle, only by foot. I changed the collision mask to e00000 and I used e02000 from the barrier trigger script, but without success with a vehicle.

Is there a chance to automate a sliding door just on entering a trigger?

See FS17 install folder "sdk/collisionMasks.txt" for right combination of trigger bitmask.

I tried various bit combinations without success. The trigger is working fine in FS15, in FS15 only by foot.

Is there any chance for opening a gate without user interaction on approaching an appropriate trigger?

Scripts from FS15 will barely work in FS17 anymore.
Use the FS17 door trigger SDK from here. Read the instructions carefully.
Perhaps also examine a FS17 map with working sliding gates.

I know the SDK. Opening a door as an animated object is no problem, as I mentioned in my first post.

Its not a FS15 specific trigger or function. Its implemented in FS17 by default (like the barrier trigger) , so i assume it should work, but it behaves in a different way than in FS15.
