Oct. 21 HOTFIX - Deliveries not possible unless you owned the business - FIXED
Please read ReadMe!!!!
Complete version 2 changes:
-Robberies added to certain purchasable businesses. Details in ReadMe
-Ability to hire/fire employees added to all businesses. Some locations will have extra peds, vehicles, etc spawn when employees are hired. Hiring employees also gives a chance to increase income. Details in ReadMe.
-Lunatics added: Certain businesses now have a chance of a lunatic spawning and killing patrons of your business. Details in ReadMe.
-Jobs added: There are now various jobs you can perform around Liberty City, including (paramedic (ambulance driver), food delivery driver, and fuel recovery. Details in ReadMe.
Previous Changes are as follows:
-businesses still appear as "destination" blips on the map, but are now named (each business is named on the map when moused over)
-when a business is purchased, the blip will change into a tie, signifying ownership of the business
-when the income reaches a certain amount (varies for each property but is usually near the property income cap) the blip will change into a dollar sign. This signifies a high income at that property that should be collected soon.
-most businesses are enterable to allow future updates to add employees and scenarios (different for each type of business)
-SAVING THE GAME will now save all businesses owned and statistics of each property (time owned, current income, etc)
-you can now change which keys are used for purchasing and collecting income in the ini. Change "RControlKey" and/or "RShiftKey" to whichever key you prefer to use (i.e. "O" or "J") and save the ini.
NOTE: The script runs once every 6 seconds, and it is big. If no prompt appears while Niko is under a marker, please wait a few seconds before reporting it as a bug.
PRECAUTIONS: Due to the mod running on play time, I recommend SAVING in a safehouse before quitting the game, as the "Properties owned" file will be written on each save (time,income,owned status). (i.e. If you own a property, play for an hour, then reload without saving, the total play time will not be updated, as well as income, time, and owned status)
INSTALLATION: Place the "businesses.net" and "businesses.ini" files into the "scripts" folder of your root GTA IV directory. DELETE the business.net.dll and business.ini files from the first version of this mod, as they will not overwrite.
Tested on GTA IV V1.0.4 and v1.0.7 using scripthook.net 184.108.40.206, scripthook 0.4 and 0.51, and latest xliveless 0.997.
COPYRIGHT: Please do not upload this mod anywhere else, reuse, or modify it in any way. Please respect others work.
Hope it is fun, keep an eye for future updates.
