Making the fire extinguisher work?

Recommended Posts

I'd want to do this without a mod; Searches turned up not much that is recent...

 

Now that we have a fire extinguisher object in the vanilla game, it seems a shame to have it just as a prop.

 

I realise that the fire on a recently destroyed vehicle can't easily be put out, at least, not the last time I fiddled with it, but it is possible to use a fire object to simulate a fire.

 

I'm thinking, have an addaction on the object, attachto it to the player's hand.

 

Create a fireobject as required.

 

When the extinguisher is pointed at a fire, have it spew some particles, delete the fire object. Objective complete.

 

Is it that simple?

Hey Mr. "Hold my beer!",

 

check this out:

Might help to delete the burning effect on regular vehicles, no idea if this still works.

 

Cheers

Oh, that's cool. It makes a working extinguisher even more desirable!

Thanks grumpy, I was just about to search for that post :)

I'd really love to see a mod that adds spreading fires along with that extingquisher. Might be a bit tricky to do and probably quite performance intensive, but still...

That would be awesome, with varying spread by terrain type. That sounds like something I would like to do in the not so distant future

Have you looked at the SC Mod? That may give you some ideas.
