Does anyone know how to put strobe lights on a truck? I've seen this effect on a few older trucks and wanted to try it on my new Monster Patrol ( that I haven't even started yet! :P )

I used to be really good at this, I gotta really look at it again to refresh my brain, let me look at my Virginia Giant, and see if anything comes back to me, and I'll let ya know. I know what makes em spin faster or slower and the "spray pattern" size, the flashing I know is possible I think, just gotta remember how to do it.... unless someone else knows jump in, if not, I'll be in touch...

its simple really. Just mess with the options for lights in binedit. mostly its how long the light goes on and off in seconds.

Forgot about Snakebite, yeah, just make the number at the bottom smaller to get it to flash faster, then use the upper part to position the light itself to where ya want it, just remember on Snakebite, it faces outwards, on the sides, just mess with the position to get it to aim forward, if thats what yer after.

Monster Patrol (stock) has those Cop lights that actually work like spinning strobes. I saw it when we did a rumble in Night mode, and it looked really cool actually. Maybe could change the color of the lights in settings.
