Hello, I don't know anything about Gui and I want to ask how I can make or call notifications like this ?
Not necessarily for vehicle. For example when player enters trigger in placeable building.

Thank you in advance !

The easiest method is the usual notification in upper right corner:
g_currentMission:addIngameNotification(color, text);
where color is an array { red,green,blue,saturation } like eg. { 0.0, 1.0, 1.0, 1.0 }

I can add this type of notification, I care about notification like on the screenshot I have attached. My guess is it will be more demanding doing this. Where could I possibly see how it is written ? Because I could not personally find it in the documentation.

I don't know. But quite sure it is a GUI element listed in LUADOC Script -> GUI.

I was just looking for something else and randomly came across this attach display.
It is part of AttacherJoints.lua function onUpdateTick():
line #646: g_currentMission:showAttachContext(info.attachable)

Doesn't look like you can use it for arbitrary custom purposes.

If you don't like the upper right notification, you could use a general alert
g_currentMission:showBlinkingWarning(text, duration);

Actually me too already found it, and I found its source. Now I have to figure out how to do it. Thanks for help ;)
