Default Make vehicle lights come on at night, off at day

The title basically says it all.
I may be dumb, but I thought SAMP did it by default and that the only function preventing it was 'ManualVehicleEngineAndLights'

Any help is appreciated.

Do you already have a system to track and sync time between players?

Automatically or when a player toggles vehicle lights on?

Automatically. When it turns dark, it should turn the lights on and when it turns light, it should turn the lights off.

If you want to synchronise time between players you need a 1 second repeating timer to increase the time stored in variables. You can then set a players time when they spawn and every few minutes to keep it in sync. Use TogglePlayerClock to enable the clock and slow-transitioning interpolated weather.

Now you’re tracking the time server-side you can easily detect when the time reaches your predetermined ‘dark’ time (8/9pm?) and loop through all players that are driving a vehicle and turn their vehicle lights on with SerVehicleParamsEx. Same for when it gets light (6am?).
