when you look the video and the screenshots they look very great. nice sync, great system. etc

but whats with little features like, Day Time, Radio in Car or on Bike etc?

when you sit with 3other persons in a car, do all hear the same radio? and if you change the radio show, by the others it will change to?

and will be the Day Time the same by all people? because i think it would be a bit unfair if by one it is 12 am and great sun and by another its 12pm and dark night O.o

Currently the time and radio are not synced. Those little features are things that will be added over time. First we deal with the Ped and Vehicle sync, which is certainly the hardest and most crucial part of the mod. Once those things are perfected we start syncing some of the easier things like time, weather, radio, wave heights, world entities etc. Hope this answers your question.

Going for ped sync? Thats hard. It seems easier to start small at first.

When I say "Ped sync," I just mean Players that are represented by what GTA refers to as Pedestrians. Not AI Peds or NPCs.

Fido has an ingame model too, so he should be able to become playable...

Don't sync radio...

It's just a waste of bandwith tounge.gif And if we roll in the car with the driver, in example me, listening to rap, my homie right next to me who likes Reggae, one on the backseat who likes rock and the other one - electronic music? confused.gif

I think it would suck for the others, except maybe the guy who likes reggae or electronic (lol cuz i know the rock guys are the ones that hate on rap the most), to be forced 2 listen 2 rap when they drive with me. tounge.gif

It would suck to have to get stuck listening to the country station becuase the driver wants to piss you off. ><

i think it is possible.

a friend tested gtaT O.o and he said that the server admin changed the eather effects and daytime for about 6times. so i think its also possible to give the car driver the right to swich the radio channel for everyone.

Everyone has the radio files stored on their computer. All it would do is tell the game what radio station is playing, and then it would play that sound file from the hard drive.

Should probably send what time in the radio file the driver is to totally sync it

Yeah yeah, but you're missing the point - it's unnessecary, unimportant and would annoy more people than it would please them.

Ewww @ synchronised radio station controlled by driver, I would be more impressed with synced door/garage animations and other pertinent world related events, of course only bother syncing to players within close proximity, no point loading up the server to sync such things globally.

Anyhow, synchronising the fundamental elements of gameplay well, peds, vehicles and combat/collisions when in the same proximity sphere is far more important. I would ditch all the trivial extra's just to increase player limits and lag tolerance, not like any SA multiplayer mods will be well backed commercial releases with powerful dedicated server clusters spread across the globe.

synced radio....nice idea, but if that takes a long time, don't sync it...It has been mentioned earlier-->there's no count for taste (when it comes to music), and I don't think its that important for gameplay...

btw: ur restyled site lookzz sweet keep it up! biggrin.gif

Sync everything! Not just the radio, but peds, sea creatures and those flying birds too! biggrin.gif

But seriously, as most of the people said, the most important is a smooooth gameplay!! smile.gif Then, if there are same spare bandwith and devtime, add some extra from the end of the list (btw, time and weather sync is still much more important smile.gif ) As I saw, the priority list and developing is pretty qood and reasonable (yup, passenger driveby is a cool option!! the new year vid. is great! smile.gif rampage_ani.gif )
