Acquire Persistent Vehicle account_uid

5 posts in this topic

I'm dipping my toes into some code (semi-reluctantly) and want to see if something is even possible before I get too over my head.  

Is it possible to populate a local variable with the account_uid of a vehicle that a player is interacting with? The script in question uses a CfgInteractionMenus action to perform a task.  I want to have the script check to see if a vehicle has a specific account_uid assigned and either complete the task or throw an exception.  The specific account_uid that is being checked for will always be the same.

Any help or guidance here would be immeasurably appreciated.

It might be of help to you to have a look into how AVS tracks persistent vehicles as it gives them a database ID which by way of a tag which acts as the uid in the database. This seems similar to what you're asking.

Not exactly, but it might help me see how to access the uid. All I really need to do is acquire the account_uid for the vehicle that a player is interacting with.  The account_uid for that vehicle will then be entered into a variable in the script.

Thanks for the reply.
