1.1 Basic Information
The graffiti system allows members of official/unofficial gangs to tag various images/text slogans around the city at preset spray locations. Members of official gangs will automatically be equipped with a spray can and the option to use the command "/graffiti." There is no additional cost when it comes to tagging walls. It's open to all players
Using the command "/graffiti" brings up a text box to allow you to customize your graffiti tag. As you select each option, a confirmation message in the chatbox will display what you have chosen. Use the "<<" button or "ESC" key to head back a menu/exit the pop up. You will need to fully exit the /graffiti text box before you can start spraying your tag.
After you've set your text as you want you just right click and aim at the tag then you proceed to spray. You will then see a timer come up and begin counting down. The more characters your text has, the longer the timer is. If you take your finger off your right mouse button or "fire" button, the spray will be cancelled.
2.1 Pick A Graffiti Image
The first option allows you to select pre-defined graffiti images stored in the GTA game. You can select from the following tags:
2.2 Want Custom Text Instead?
Alternatively you can select to write your own custom text on a wall instead. When selecting the second option in the /graffiti menu, you'll be presented with the option to type your text and a brief description of the options available to you.
Custom text supports BB-Codes so you can alter the layout or colour of your text. Simple put the code before the word you wish to colour. For example:
(r) = Red (e.g. (r)Red = Red)
(w) = White (e.g. (w)White = White)
(b) = Black (e.g. (b)Black = Black)
(bl) = Blue (e.g. (bl)Blue = Blue)
(y) = Yellow (e.g. (y)Yellow = Yellow)
(g) = Green (e.g. (g)Green = Green)
(o) = Orange (e.g. (o)Orange = Orange)
Use (n) for a new line of text.
For example, the code (y)Graffiti(n)(b)System(n)(r)Is(n)(g)Cool! would result in the following tag:
2.3 Pick A Font (For Custom Text)
The graffiti system also supports different fonts to be used alongside your custom text. Note: You will need these fonts to be installed on your computer to have the tag display properly! Failure to install the required font will cause the tag to be shown in regular "Arial" font. The custom fonts we use are:
- Comic Sans (DEFAULT)
- Diploma (Click HERE for download link)
- Dripping (Click HERE for download link)
- Levi Brush (Click HERE for download link)
This command opens a box to allow you to customize your graffiti tag.
