Weapon Storage Re-Structure

Post by Damian » Sat Jun 16, 2012 2:25 am

Technical overview
Script name: Weapon_Utility
Script author(s): DamianC
Authors comment: Weapons are not only a huge part of LS-RP, it's a huge part of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, and gaming in general. It's a very controversial feature here at LS-RP when it comes to the general storage of weapons. The biggest issue I noticed was the constant "If it's on you, it's on you" statement that people hate so much. The weapon is claimed to not be on them, but rather in the bushes behind them.

When it's not in the bushes behind them it's hid behind the corner in an alley somewhere. When it's not there it's in the car- which raises an eyebrow for me personally. If it's in the car why is it not /place'd there? "Because /place is not convenient enough." Either not enough room or people just generally prefer having their guns inside their vehicle next to them rather than in their trunk. The issue overall I noticed was a lack of convenience and creativity towards the player when it generally came to where a gun is exactly or where can they put it exactly.

Personally, I just want everyone to be comfortable when playing this server; actually it's what everyone wants around here. No one wants to tab and see screenshots of where a gun was placed via /me, nor do they want to go through the hassle of trusting you OOCly before agreeing/disagreeing with what you did IC. It's distracting towards roleplay in general and we just can't have that here.

We're listening, and hopefully throughout this weapon re-structure system everyone can go back to being happy and clear at mind when it comes to weapon storage.

General information
  • /place
      Works inside and outside a vehicle now. When outside of a vehicle the trunk has to be open. When inside the vehicle the /engine has to be on.
  • /takegun slot_id
      Works inside and outside a vehicle now. When outside of a vehicle the trunk has to be open. When inside the vehicle the /engine has to be on. It now relies off of a slot_id rather than the Weapon ID. Just incase you want the Deagle in slot 1 rather than the Deagle in slot 5 for instance.
  • /check
      Works inside and outside a vehicle now. When outside of a vehicle the trunk has to be open. When inside the vehicle the /engine has to be on.
    /leavegun *
      When you perform this command you will drop your weapon on the ground. Meaning it will fall from your stats and will not be on you at all. The difference between /leavegun and /dropgun is that with /leavegun your weapon will be visibly on the ground for anyone to /grabgun.

      It will stay on the ground for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes it will be removed from the server, to save resources. This command does not work inside of business, houses, HQs, etc. Only outside.
      *This item is able to be /confiscated.
  • /grabgun *
      If you see a gun laying around, /grabgun to pick it up. It will save to your stats on pickup.
