Car Functions and Indicators v1.2

by LetsPlayOrDy
Please explain why you're reporting this file:

What this mod does is give you car controls like engine toggle, cruise control, open doors, and a check engine light.

To use this you need Aru's Scripthook and HazardX's .NET Scripthook.

To install copy the .net.dll and .ini files from the zip to the scripts folder in your GTA:IV directory.

Renamed from Car Indicators to Car Functions and Indicators

Added ability to disable individual GUI elements.

Added ability to move individual GUI elements.

Removed RPM meter.

Added ability to open doors.

Changed how the cruise control works. It is now more like real life cruise control.
When you brake, it shuts off cruise control.
You can speed up, and when you let go of the gas, cruise control will go back to it's original speed.

VERY small update. When you are not in a car, it will not show the GUI.

Fixed weird cruise control turning when braking.
Also, when you reverse, cruise control pauses.

Fixed the lowering of your car when you have cruise control (probably not totally fixed but its been changed a little)


Buttons are now customizable with the ini, so if you don't want Cruise Control to be the default Q, you can change it to whatever you want!

Fixed flying when cruise control is on.

Made it so if you hit a vehicle, the cruise control will pause. And when you get away from said vehicle, you will speed up again to your original speed.

Moved the cruise control GUI thing a LIIITLE bit to the right.

Added a Script Toggle feature, so you can be undisturbed when you want.

Please do not redistibute without my permission. Thanks Replaces: Car Indicators v1.1

could you do a version with only cruise control?
Posted on October 8, 2013 12:04PM by niko98fin
Yes, only cruise control is the most useful thing

@niko98fin & @Solarix

You can just disable the other GUI elements in the ini file. I just put this feature in lol.

Nice mod.

The gui is just a bit ugly and too big, maybe try making it smaller and have it fit alongside the HUD.

Anyway still a 9/10

Keep up the good work. 10/10.

The gui is the best I could do. I am better at coding than making pictures. Could you show me what you think they should look like?

Alongside the HUD? Could you make an example or a picture or something of what it should look like?

Thank you. :)


Thanks. :)

@LetsPlayOrDy this is brilliant, iv been just driving round for hours now :)

i have a question though.... would it be possible to map the indicator keys in as joypad buttons? or maybe there is a way to build a script for this? i think being able to use the joypad for indicators would be truly EPIC! so thought id put the idea forward as i know nothing about scripting etc

the mod gets a clean 10/10 from me :)

Thanks! :D Lol.

What do you mean as joypad? Like a xbox controller? If that is what you are talking about then I might be able to add support for that. I am not sure though, the controller for xbox doesn't really have enough buttons to put all of these on it.

Download ControlMK

It allows you to set the buttons on the XBOX Controller to control keyboard commands. So you'd set the indicator to the "J" and "K" keys lets say, you'd set ControlMK so left and right on d-pad simulate keyboard commands "J" and "K", and voila.

@MarkC9 thank you very very much il try this right now :)

@LetsPlayOrDy yes i mean Xbox controller... maybe to use D-pad left and right as MarkC9 said. this would be perfect :)
Posted on October 9, 2013 8:47PM by twattyballs2011

I do agree, but there are some issues. With Car Functions and Indicators, there are 4 functions: engine toggle, cruise control, open left door, and open right door. I do not know how I could fit all of those on the d-pad, or anywhere else on the controller. Maybe I could just put only 2 of the functions instead of all of them on the controller. If I was to add that, what functions should they be?

RE: Indicators/Turn Signals -- I have the Turn Signal Script mapped on my Steering Wheel... so the Left Button for Left, and Right Button for Right.

@LetsPlayOrDy i see what you mean... :/

from a developer point i completely understand your reasoning too, if you were to map it youd want to map it ALL... i think just the indicators mapped to D-pad would be fine as they are a basic driving function and would make for good vehicle showcasing videos etc

I understood most of what you said, except for the 'just the indicators' part. In this mod there is only 1 indicator (the check engine light), so that doesn't exactly make sense, because there is only 1.
Posted on October 10, 2013 12:28PM by LetsPlayOrDy
i mean turn signal lights
Posted on October 10, 2013 4:35PM by twattyballs2011

I researched some more on the turn signal lights. What I have found is that scripthook doesn't have the feature to turn on/off specific lights. Advancedhook does this though, as IVindicators uses this. I do not want to use advancedhook though and change a bunch of code for just some turn signal lights. :/
Posted on October 14, 2013 1:50PM by LetsPlayOrDy
i see. no problem. it turns out, i have your script, and the turn signal one installed too, so apologies to you for mistaking your mod for that one... :/
Posted on October 15, 2013 4:37AM by twattyballs2011

Lol. It's alright.
Posted on October 15, 2013 7:50AM by LetsPlayOrDy
after a few minutes, I get a pop up that there is an error in the script :(
Posted on October 30, 2013 7:15AM by LOLXDXPLOL

Did you read what the error was?

What is your game version? I have only tested on

Go into your GTA IV directory, open scripthookdotnet.log, copy the text from the file, and send it to

whats the controlls?
Posted on January 28, 2014 11:45AM by usher999

Sorry for late reply. E is engine on/off, Q is cruise control on/off, etc. If you want to see all of them, look in the .ini file.
