Mandatory properties

This prototype inherits all the properties from Prototype/EntityWithOwner.


Type: double
Must be positive. Weight of the entity used for physics calculation when car hits something.

braking_power or braking_force

Type: Energy or double
Two different ways to set braking force. At least one must exist. Must be positive.

friction or friction_force

Type: double
Two different ways to set friction force. At least one must exist. Must be positive.


Type: double
The (movement) energy used per hit point (1 hit point = 1 health damage) taken and dealt for this vehicle during collisions. The smaller the number, the more damage this vehicle and the rammed entity take during collisions: damage = energy / energy_per_hit_point.

Optional properties


Type: float
Default: 1
Must be in the [0, 1] interval.


Type: double
Default: 1 / 60.0
Must be positive. Sound is scaled by speed.


Type: double
Default: 1.0
Must be positive. Sound is scaled by speed.


Type: double
Default: 0.0


Type: TriggerEffect


Type: TriggerEffect


Type: string
The name of the equipment grid this vehicle has.


Type: Sprite
The sprite that represents this vehicle on the map/minimap.


Type: Sprite
The sprite that represents this vehicle on the map/minimap when it is selected.


Type: bool
Default: true
Determines whether this vehicle accepts passengers. This includes both drivers and gunners, if applicable.
