[REL|SA|CLEO] GPS

Recommended Posts

Silent

Global Positioning System mod

  1. What is it?
  2. Download mirror
  3. Installation
  4. Usage
  5. Known bugs
What is it?
    This mod is a first one, that brings real satelite navigation in SA.

    Mod can navigate you straight to target marker position, including leading to highways.

Download mirrorInstallation
  1. Extract files from archive to game directory.
  2. Open gps.ini from CLEO folder and configure mod settings as you want (more information about options in gps.ini file).
  3. [optional] Download voices and extract them to game directory.
  4. [optional, but recommended] Download latest routes.dat build and extract it to game directory.
Usage
  • Press F12 in vehicle after placing target marker on map to enable GPS. Note that you might have to press that button for about 0.5s.
  • Pressing F12 again or getting out of the vehicle will disable mod.
Known bugs
  • Sometimes GPS leads are inaccurate (routes.dat updates should solve some of that problems, so please check regularly for updates).
  • [only for CLEO3] Voices sometimes gets stuck (enabling and disabling game menu solves it) and they're played unsmooth.
  • [only for slow PC's] Voices gets bugged in SA-MP (if you have Dual or Quad Core CPU, then setting gta_sa.exe process to all CPU's should help, it's SA-MP bug).

Wow sounds great! Is it possible to have those lines on the radar that highlight what path to take like on the real GPS? It sounds pretty complicated but I'm sure you can do it... You're one of the best coders I know! biggrin.gif

Sadly it won't be possible, so GPS also won't recognize blind ways (streets that have connection with only one road, like Grove Street or street new Loco Low Co).

 

GPS is working for now, but I have to make that instructions more accurate - for now mod has problems with some roads, like confusing Las Colinas ones. Also I have to test it deeply on whole San Andreas state.

After 2 days of working, got that arrow to work properly smile.gif

 

To-do:

  • fix some bugs with GPS leads
  • tell mod that highways exists (she [GPS has female voice] can't drive properly from SF to LV so far) tounge.gif - DONE!
  • block overlapping commands (sometimes when car is stopped, GPS can tell 'after 200 meters turn left' or sth repeatedly)
  • add some INI options - DONE!
  • add support for some CLEO4 options (mod will recognize if you're using CLEO3 or CLEO4 by itself) - DONE!
  • test in game
  • test in game
  • test in game again tounge.gif
  • release!

Hm, sounds nice, and I hope it works well! I wonder, did you implement this using manual reading of path nodes, using stuff like the 'get next route' command, or did you use some other weird hacks? tounge.gif

I've used get_path_nearest_to_coords opcode, but I'll have to implement some constant points manually, like ramps to highways etc.

I wondered the same question as NTAuthority said but how did you manage to work with that opcode? To be more correct, there are a few opcodes which are really similar and have a "type" or "in_direction" param. These descriptions don't mean anything but I found out they were used by R* to skip the nearest route path and get the next closest one by a specified number (from 0 to n).

 

What's your ace in the hole? Does the arrow follow each route path found? If so, it'll rotate every time the route changes. confused.gif

Simple and easy tounge.gif

 

Arrow is pointing straight to target marker, not to paths.

So how do you call it GPS if there's no indicator which shows the real path to follow?

 

I cannot see that in the first picture though. tounge2.gif

Wait, wait. I'm talking above white arrow above my car - pointing to target marker. Textures and voices are showing path way, and it is working ~75% fine smile.gif

 

'Telling' GPS about highways and other constant points for now...

Yeah, I realized it by myself before your answer. There should be a better way like R* made with DRIVE_TO task which always follow the shortest path. smile.gif

Completed path routing, GPS now will recognize highways smile.gif

 

However that option will read data from external routes.dat file, which will be updated often (and will be uploaded on GTA Garage separately, like voices will be). So when first release will be uploaded, that option might be still a bit buggy, but DAT updates will solve all bugs. I think that files for map mods would be done too*.

 

BTW. Sadly mod will work ONLY with normal SA map, or maps that have car paths!

 

* Because routes.dat will have map coordinates, INI file will allow to disable routings, to prevent leading to SA highways when user has modded map.

 

Because that CLEO is one of my biggest and the most complex mods, at the moment I have 21 backups of source on my PC - one backup after each important change cookie.gif

Mod is finished, currently I'm doing some finish stuff, like readme etc.

I think that I'll upload files (files - script, Polish and English voices, routes.dat file will be separated uploads - voices are optional, and routes.dat will be updated more often than script) soon, in around 30 minutes.
