### Re: Code Help

You dont need quotes around 512 and 1 there. Ok, so you have 1 tiny car within a radius of 512. Might take a while to see it.

### Re: Code Help

But is there a way to make it automatically spawn and roam around (only on the track) like emergency vehicleS?

Yes there is!

Please search the documentation. Keywords flags, x flags, own cars, spawn.

### Re: Code Help

Your rally cars cannot drive on your rally track because you didn't set flags for them. You might add

Code: Select all

"flag user5": true,
"flag normal": false,
to the car, too.

For bigger cities it might help to add

Code: Select all

"car local only":true
as described here to your building so a valid target building is always found.

### Re: Code Help

I have a question Lobby. May a building spawn more than one type of car?

Jsonlint says there are duplicate tags when I try, but Theotown doesn't complain. Should I place them in the code like "car": [ 1, 2, 3]?

Ah, I see. They need different flags.

### Re: Code Help

If you define a flag multiple times only one will be used... when I added the feature I had not in mind that you would like to do such things

### Re: Code Help

Let's see. I think an array of four would be sufficient. One type of road on each side of a building = 4.

### Re: Code Help

Lobby is there any code I can copy from the emergency vehicles, the code which makes them instantly spawn and free roam, its exactly what I need

### Re: Code Help

As former member said, it's not the same thing for operational cars. However, the behavior should be exactly the same when you use the "car"-flags as you try to do. Operational cars also "search" for buildings they drive to randomly then.
