Shuttle Script 1.1.2

MODDERS RESOURCE: For modders who want to have a flying vehicle

  1. Lefl
    This is a modified hoverbike.lua which is a modders resource, which allows modders to easily have a flying VTOL vehicle just like my UT-47 Shuttle Mod

    The script has support for Guns. Headlights are disabled-

    To enable the Shooting, uncomment the code blocks in controls() and animate()
    and add your animation parts to the vehicle (take a look at the humanmech as an example)

    Inside of the vehicle config (vehiclename.vehicle) you will need to set
      "occupiedMovementSettings" : {
        "collisionPoly" : [[-6.7, 0.7], [-6.7, -2.7], [6.7, -2.7], [6.7, 0.7]],
        "mass" : 4,
        "gravityEnabled" : true,
        "collisionEnabled" : true

      "occupiedMovementSettings" : {
        "collisionPoly" : [[-6.7, 0.7], [-6.7, -2.7], [6.7, -2.7], [6.7, 0.7]],
        "mass" : 4,
        "gravityEnabled" : false,
        "collisionEnabled" : true
    also you will need to put this in somewhere in the same file:
      "AimLimit" : 40,
      "shuttleFireCycle" : 1.5,
      "shuttleProjectile" : "standardbullet",
      "shuttleProjectileConfig" : {
        "power" : 50
    (if you put it at the end you will need to remove the last comma)

      "targetVerticalVelocity" : 80,
      "targetHorizontalVelocity" : 80,
    I hope to make a video on how to do it this week, but i cant promise anything

    Great! It's really helping me with a project I'm working on, but it's kind of confusing as I just want to add a gun to the hoverbike. If you could help that would greatly be appreciated. My steam name is The_Daily_Herp

    This is awesome! I've always wanted to make a vehicle, but all the built-in systems are insanely clunky and I'm not quite good enough with Lua to build my own. Thanks a ton for this opportunity!

    I cannot resist...
