Thanks,  I was able to make one of my own.  I don't know much about JavaScript.  Since this one was short and simple I figured I could get it to work.

How about a script that makes something rotate the part back and forth like a radar or oscillating fan?

Thanks again.  Very useful.
Glad you figured it out!
You can take a look at the Ilyushin_Il14P's script for the cab fans. I think that's exactly what you're looking for.

This is the code:

Code: [Select]
Line 544   //Misc
                //CabFans
//base
if(fans_base>=1){fans_inv=1;}
if(fans_base<=-1){fans_inv=0;}
if(fans_inv==0){fans_base+=dt*0.5;}
if(fans_inv==1){fans_base-=dt*0.5;}
geom.rotate_joint_orig(left_fan_base, fans_base, {x:0,y:0,z:1});
geom.rotate_joint_orig(right_fan_base, fans_base, {x:0,y:0,z:-1});

The variables are declared at the beginning of the script.

Code: [Select]
var fans=0;
var fans_base=0;
var fans_inv=0;

Love how Acetone has these scattered around his test scenery. I would love it if they were spinning.

Thank you Levi.  It helped me.  Are there any books or links on the scripting?  How come you know so much?

I tried to keep them on a realistic pattern (oriented toward the north entry of the valley where I suppose most of the wind come from) but it's purely a fantasy, there are no wind turbine here in reality. Same thing with the various water tower, there is not a single one in this area, but I've placed them in realistic locations (a higher than the other buildings).
Side note : have you found that poor guy trapped on the top of one of the turbine?  ;D

And I would cut my arm for a way to set some animations as automatic when the object is loaded on the scene, it will really be a nice addition to make the scene a bit more living :)

Glad it helped!

I know very little about scripting, that's only basic stuff...

But you could start reading this book: JavaScript: The Definitive Guide, 6th Edition. It's one of the best books about JavaScript out there. :)

Is it possible for these windmills to autostart when Outerra is launched, yet?

No, not yet, unfortunately.
