Is it possible to read a vehicles script through lua, settings such as its max, of lets say prop_vehicle_jeep?
file.Read could work. I know that lua can get all the files in a directory such as the maps folder, but idk about reading them.
Never used file.Read before, ran this console cmd to see if it works:
prints out nil. I’m in a vehicle, am I doing something wrong?

Just checked the gwiki for it, in additional notes: “Relative to garrysmod/data”
By the way,it’s
file.Read will not output anything if the file is loaded from a .gcf,it should work fine if you are using a custom vehicle with a custom vehiclescript.
It will work on a dedicated server for sure.
GetKeyValues() is pretty expensive, I figured that with VehicleTable it just have to cycle through a small table. Tried it on SinglePlayer, doesn’t work, anyway, I’m scrapping the idea that needs this, so thanks anyway.
