Hi all! Now I do have a little programming experience, I've programmed a lot of  PHP wtih classes and database interaction. But this LUA scripting stumps me a bit. Setting variables etc is easy but where can I find the functions that I can manipulate objects in DCS. Specifically I'd like to introduce engine failure to an airplane when e.g. passing a certain trigger zone. I have a feeling this can be done by a line or two of code in the mission editor. Using the GUI I have no issues making the plane explode when i.e. entering a tringger zone.
