Developer Diary #7 - Screenshots... screenshots everywhere...

Recommended Posts

Time for another OwlGaming V Developer Diary! This one has enough media to kill your browser.

 

Be sure to tick "HD" on the video player settings if you want to watch in high quality.

 

Chatbox

We implemented a new chatbox. The new chatbox lets you customize many elements including:

  • Number of chat lines
  • Number of chat tabs
  • Display name of each chat tab
  • Filter which types of messages are shown in each tab to help reduce spam and improve readability so you can focus more on your RP

 

Inactive tabs show how many unread messages you have so you can be sure not to miss anything!

 

Check out the video below to see the new chatbox in action. Note that the settings page design is still a WIP.

 

Achievements

We are introducing an achievement system for V which rewards players in a purely cosmetic fashion for actions performed in game and progression made throughout their time spent on Owl.

 

These achievements do not impact game play in anyway and achievements points can not be spent on any in game item or content. They are purely an OOC progression system.

 

We're interested to hear what you think about this, so please give us feedback below.

 

Police Radar

Police cruisers now include a radar system which reads the license plate of the vehicle in front and within range, as well as the speed. This system also allows the officer to easily run an MDC check on the plate when driving behind a vehicle.

 

Officers are also able to manually position a trigger zone for the speed/plate detector rather than using the automated one, enabling officers to perform speed traps.

 

Below is a screenshot of the system during development to show how we pick a target for the automated system. Check out the beta screenshots below for more examples of this system, including speed traps.

Duty System & Clothing Stores

Clothing stores have been added, allowing players to change their clothes on both premade characters and custom skins.

 

We also added support for skin customization with regards to Duty skins, for all government factions. Check out examples of the cool uniforms you can create below:

UAT Extended Beta

We've been hosting larger 'everyone on' beta test periods, similar to how we schedule UAT meetings. These sessions involve getting the entire UAT and V Development Team on to both RP and perform non-RP actions to try and break things / find bugs as well as determining how suitable the script is for roleplay.

 

This test went well. We found a couple of bugs which have since been resolved and overall we were impressed with the stability of both the script and the modification itself.

 

Now for the fun...

Got skills in Mapping ?

We are hiring mappers for GTA V. This is your chance to have a direct impact on the project and make your mark. Reach out to me on the forums or on Discord to find out more information!

 

Special Thanks to the staff

As always, the UAT has been awesome in helping us test new features.

 

A special thanks to @Chaos and @Eloquent for their efforts in scripting the above.

 

As always, feel free to reach out to us below or via Discord with any questions, concerns, ideas, etc.

 

Thanks for taking the time to read the developer diary and we look forward to making OwlGaming the number one place to roleplay in both GTA V and MTA.
