Function Lock(bool abLock = true, bool abAsOwner = false) native


  • abLock: Whether to lock or unlock this lock.
    • Default: True
  • abAsOwner: If true, and on a door, it will behave as if the owner unlocked or locked the door, and flag the adjoining cell as public or private as appropriate.
    • Default: False

Return Value



; Lock the door

; Unlock the door, flagging the cell on the other side as public
PrivateDoor.Lock(false, true)


  • If you add a key to a door, and then call this function on it at run-time because the door was unlocked or opened for some reason and it's a vanilla door that already required a key but a key was not chosen for it, your modded version of said door will not override it. The door wont accept your modded version's door key.
