Mall:

Post by Damian » Wed Dec 14, 2011 2:10 am

Technical overview
Script name: Mall
Script author(s): Damian.
Authors comment: Re-Opening the mall has been a dream for all of us here at LS-RP. It was attempted once before but with the escalator crashes it was quite a hassle and shutdown after a while. Luckily Kye shared the same dream of re-opening the mall and thus came the new SA:MP client- 0.3d.

One of the main thing I wanted out of this mall was for people to get a nice general atmosphere of human interaction. A place for a new player to run to because they know it's where people will be. The second thing I wanted to do is make it so people can customize their player as much as possible, rather than just having a skin now you can have a skin, hat, glasses, and a backpack. Or a skin, a purse, and a hat. Or a skin, and just a hat turned backwards. So on and so on.

General information


    SA:MP has opened up the mall for servers to take full advantage of- 14 open shops. We will be using all 14 shops, and every single one of them will have something unique about them all.

Spoiler: show
Masks are OOC
    The mask system is an OOC system. That means when you place it on it does not effect anything ICly. It is just a tool to hide your name OOCly from others- that's it.

    • It does not mean you have a bandana or sunglasses on. Those items are available at the mall so if you want to roleplay wearing them you must buy them and place them on.
    • You are still recognizable ICly.


    As a result of that and possible other reasons behind it, we'll be getting new objects such as various head gear, the same sunglasses, and multiple other electronic / tool objects.

  • The mall itself consists of a few stores on the ground and upper level, in some of them you'll find floating text - /buy - followed by the class of the items the store has to offer (See the spoiler below). In total there's five stores - one for clothing (hats, berets, sunglasses, bandanas), tools (Such as screwdrivers / wrenches / crowbars), musical instruments (guitars only so far) and sports items (from helmets to hockey masks) respectively.

  • You'll have a total of five slots for all of your objects that are from now on, also save-able, that is somewhat similar to the vehicle modding system. You'll be able to access the list of objects, drop some or adjust them in a specific store through /clothing [place/drop/adjust].
    /clothing place <slot number (0-4)> - puts the item on/off.
    /clothing drop <slot number (0-4)> - self-explanatory.
    /clothing adjust <slot number (0-4)> - lets you re-adjust the item without buying it all over, while in a clothing store.


  • All items except for hand-held objects sometimes may require additional positioning to fit precisely your skin - as the sizes, height, width of models are different - you will not just be able to get those for yourself, but also adjust them to your particular skin for a better look.

    Simply put, once you decide to buy an item or adjust it, you'll enter a familiar menu that will allow you to navigate the item in different directions (up/down/left/right/forward/back + resize / rotate) to make it suit - switch between menus by pressing "H", arrows for navigations and Y/N keys to confirm position / purchase or cancel the menu; refer to screenshots below for examples. Keep in mind that unrealistic positioning is punishable.
