Idea: LCS/VCS/IV styled multiplayer for San Andreas. aka p2p.

So this is something I have been thinking about for the past few years, I have been wanting to see a multiplayer for SA that has synchronized peds and traffic, just like how IV's multiplayer is basically.

 

I decided I'd post the idea here, I want you to tell me your thoughts. Is P2P a good idea? (If we remove the fact that hackers can do basically whatever they want *cough*)

Is anyone willing to start such project? (I am, but I am lacking a lot of network-knowledge)

 

Who else would wanna see this in the near future?

 

I truly want to attempt in making a p2p multiplayer for SA just for the sake of that true ped/traffic sync across players. If anyone wants to help out, it'd be great.

 

Let me know your thoughts. :D

Ideas are cheas. Execution is everything.

There are plenty of people with the ideas, but only a few of them create what they have thought of.

You idea requires a team of highly specialized people in GTA programming and that makes it too much of a hassle.

Considering that, your project will not get done. It would be rather hard to find the people willing to spend their time on your idea. The time is valuable.

Progress report!

 

Right, apparently I decided I'd start working on this after all despite having no team or anything. And you know what? I've actually come somewhere with this. I've posted a video here if you wanna know what it's gonna be like:

 

Spoiler

 

 

Recently I made a custom launcher for San Andreas which you can use to launch singleplayer, or SA-MP on 5 different servers. (+1 custom server that you can add yourself)

The idea is that I'll implement a lil "p2p" protocol which will sync peds and traffic across all clients that uses my launcher to play.

 

As of right now, only 1 ped can be synced at once, the current path isn't synced properly, and neither is the state of the ped. (fleeing/fighting/walking etc) I will however get to sync this as soon as possible, and when that's done, I've basically got all the key ingredients for adding, and syncing peds. And very easily so.

 

Later on, it's time for vehicles. So that'll be really interesting. Wish me luck!

 

 

My discord exists HERE if you're interested. :)

 

 

 

Also, yes. It will get done regardless, fastman92. ;)
