Checkpoint Chaser

Recommended Posts

trx

Hello,

 

I've had this mod which I worked on last year(?) out of boredom playing the standard missions. I forgot about it untill now, and I thought I'd share it here with you.

Although there are some things that might need to be added/fixed, the mod works fine, and since I don't think I'll ever finish it myself, feel free to add/change things as you see fit.

 

This mod is what GTA is all about for me: Drive to destination, kill a few people and start moving to next target. The Mod is very customizable through the ingame settings menu, and should offer some fun settings for all of you GTA fans.

 

Take a look here.

 

Enjoy.

 

Disclaimer: I know the code could probably be more clean/effecient, but it works, so don't knock it tounge2.gif

Did anyone try this yet? -I'm curious what you would think of it... smile.gif

This sounds really intersting. I'll try it out tomorow.

Also, is it possible to put police roadblocks at each checkpoints in this mod? Cause it kinda sounds like it from the description.

Judging from the description and screenshots it looks AWESOME! And since I'm a scripter myself I really appreciate all the time and effort that must've gone into planning, implementing and bug-testing such a complex script.

 

However, I doubt that I'm going to get the chance to try it out anytime soon - I'm too busy at the moment.

With the default settings (my favorite one), there is a Police blockade on each checkpoint that increases in difficulty each time you pass one. Wanted level does not go below 2, but there's a policebribe, armor and health on each checkpoint.

There are 5 difficulty levels for police blockades though. Setting 5 being the one that gets increasingly harder to beat. (eventually you'll face up to 20 law-enforcement agents, packing quite some firepower. (I've not gotten that far myself)

 

Another one of my personal favorites is cruising around in a vehicle of choice having 5 times its normal hitpoints and a wanted level that doesn't go below 5 stars, with each checkpoint passed fully repairing the vehicle.

 

You can customize the waypoints as much as you like, with up to 5 police bribes, armor, health and vehicle repairs.

It's possible to make the mod insanely hard, or as easy as you feel like.

How do I acces the menu after I started the game?

 

Oh, and this mod f*cking rocks.

Best mod I've ever played. inlove.gif

The sheer amount of settings is UN-f*cking-BELIEVABLE.

 

Definitely a must-have for EVERYONE!

 

 

How long did it take to write this script?

 

 

EDIT: One absolutely minor error:

When you go back from Player -> Weapons -> Starting Weapons -> Throwables, the 'Special weapons' entry is highlighted, and vice versa. That's actually the only oversight I've noticed up to now.

You cannot. You make the settings, then play the game untill you die or get busted.

Then it's New Game again. (with other settings if you like)

 

Thanks for the feedback guys. smile.gif

Good work. Good idea, new gameplay system.

You should make it as mission to can start the checkpoint chaser from normal game state

and save the settings.

To make the setting by every new start isnt fun.

Also the checkpoint chaser should have a end.

I choosed 4 checkpoints in setting but i got checkpoints again and again.

 

And then, the NRG500 have a bad handling

I assume its because

0423: car $player_starting_vehicle improve_handling 1.5

I dont like this code. I think its a mistake to believe to get better handling by using this code.

 

Keep it up. I hope you can do it as mission.

Nah..

That was the plan, but didn't work so I left it.

There's no end.

Checkpoint strength 4 means difficulty on passing the the checkpoint is 4, not the amount of checkpoints to pass... it's not a race.

I assume its because

0423: car $player_starting_vehicle improve_handling  1.5

.

You're probably right. I used that code to make the car stay on the road better when it's controlled by AI during the menu.

I reversed the effects after the game starts, but for bikes this doesn't seem to work.

Perhaps different opcode for bikes/cars?

 

You seem to know scm coding, so just make it how you like... I'm not going to do anything with this mod anymore.

That's too bad - I'm certainly going to use and modify it though, so THANK YOU for sharing it. Simple concept, but the implementation (customization!) and the fun factor are both great.

It shouldn't be that difficult to add the missing menu functions but I'll need to dig into SA menu coding first. bored.gif
