GPS System Ideas


Here's some of my ideas for a GPS system. There's some stuff here that I believe will not just improve general roleplay, but roleplay for several factions and businesses specifically.




- Your own home.

- Addresses (street & number).

- Cities/towns.

- Neighbourhoods/areas.

- Server-owned businesses (24/7's, clothing stores etc).

- Player-owned businesses.

- Government buildings (PD HQ, hospital, city gov buildings, town hall, etc).

- Misc (driving school, vehicle rent spots, train station etc).




- Search through all kinds of locations listed above.

- Set your own custom locations.

- Pin locations & customize names for quick access:

-> e.g. pin your friend's address under the name "John's House"

- See how much miles away you are from your destination in the bottom left of your screen.

- Get notified (in GUI) of current road maintenances/closed roads or any other important traffic info (set by Department of Roads and PD).

- See whether a business is open or closed.

- See opening times of businesses (which owner can set).

- See small descriptions of businesses (which owner can set).

- See phone numbers of business owners.

- See ratings of businesses, you can rate them yourself up to five stars.




/maps - opens the GUI.

/setmark [name] - adds your precise current location to the GPS with a custom name.

/distance - toggles the distance counter.


For business owners:


/opening - shows you the current opening time of your business.

/setopening [time] [time] - sets the opening time of your business.

e.g.: /setopening 8 9 (from 8 to 9 PM)

/changeopening [time] [time] - changes the opening time of your business.

/stopopening - removes opening time.

/setdesc [desc] - sets a description for your business.


For Department of Roads and PD:


/setnotice [time] [reason] - sets a traffic notification.

e.g.: /setnotice 4 Road around Ocean Flats is blocked because of an accident, will be cleared around 4 PM.

/removenotice [ID] - removes a traffic notification (only if set by your faction).

/notices - lists all the current traffic notifications + ID's in a GUI.




- Need to have a turned on phone or be in a car to use the GPS

Same as two above. Looks neat and would be fun to have and also useful for new players who just join the server. Also helpful for helpers.

GPS system has been added in last revision.


There are still suggestions that can be used for future updates on that system in the thread.
