Roadmap - December
We have to come to a conclusion that we need to make the script a lot more player friendly. Due to the fact that the script is not a simple edit, a lot of players are facing new command names, some features that they probably haven't even seen yet in SA-MP or just overall confusion about the locations. Therefore we need to dedicate this month and let players know that what we want to focus is clarification, so that you as players also can help us understand what needs to be more obvious to new players.

Secondly, we want to make Montgomery "the place to be", the active town. Montgomery has most of things already such as businesses, cheap houses and the park (which is where we want players to meet up and roleplay at least at the beginning). This does not mean that we will make other towns inactive, but we do not seek to spread the players around the entire Red County to perform minor tasks (such as cutting wood).

If you have any suggestions please do use the suggestion tab or the section on the forums to help us understand. A lot of feedback has already been given and we appreciate it heavily so keep it up!


Sincerely,
Management
Terry

Major Step Toward Friendliness
To make the script a lot friendlier we have implemented FAQ, GPS and helpful dialogs whenever typing in "/job help". The FAQ and GPS systems are fully dynamic, meaning that we can add, edit and delete listings during run-time of the server.



Global Positioning System (GPS)
You are able to search for a lot of things in the GPS.
  • Common Locations will display the dynamic list of locations admins have added.
  • Search Business Types... will help players find the different business types, especially if they are truckers and want to deliver specific products.
  • Search Closest... will allow the player to search for a lot of features that also are dynamic such as payphone, gas pump, ATM and so on. Because all these systems are dynamic, they are able to communicate to each other and finding the closest location to you is easy to display.
  • Search Address... will allow you to type in an address and it will give results based on it (look below).

Friendly Search Queries
When filling in the address "Bottom" it will give multiple results, helping the player find the one they wanted to search for.

Helpful Dialogs for Jobs
A lot of the jobs were at first confusing for players. That's why we have decided to improve the "/job help" to make it explain every command and instead of writing it to you in the chat box, it will display a dialog to avoid spamming you.
