1. Introduction

1.1 Basic Information

The graffiti system allows members of official gangs to tag various images/text slogans around the city at preset spray locations. Members of official gangs will automatically be equipped with a spray can and the option to use the command "/graffiti." Each tag costs $25 ICly to cover the cost of paint.





2. /Graffiti

As an official gang member, using the command "/graffiti" brings up a text box to allow you to customize your graffiti tag. As you select each option, a confirmation message in the chatbox will display what you have chosen. Use the "<<" button or "ESC" key to head back a menu/exit the pop up. You will need to fully exit the /graffiti text box before you can start spraying your tag.

After you've set your text as you want you just right click and aim at the tag then you proceed to spray. You will then see a timer come up and begin counting down. The more characters your text has, the longer the timer is. If you take your finger off your right mouse button or "fire" button, the spray will be cancelled.

2.1 Pick A Graffiti Image

The first option allows you to select pre-defined graffiti images stored in the GTA game. You can select from the following tags:

Image
Grove St 4 Life
Image
Seville B.V.V.D Families
Image
Varrio Los Aztecas









Image
Kilo
Image
San Fiero Rifa
Image
Temple Drive Ballas









Image
Los Santos Vargos
Image
Front Yard Balas
Image
Rolling Heights Ballas











2.2 Want Custom Text Instead?

Alternatively you can select to write your own custom text on a wall instead. When selecting the second option in the /graffiti menu, you'll be presented with the option to type your text and a brief description of the options available to you.

Custom text supports BB-Codes so you can alter the layout or colour of your text. Simple put the code before the word you wish to colour. For example:
(r) = Red (e.g. (r)Red = Red)
(w) = White (e.g. (w)White = White)
(b) = Black (e.g. (b)Black = Black)
(bl) = Blue (e.g. (bl)Blue = Blue)
(y) = Yellow (e.g. (y)Yellow = Yellow)
(g) = Green (e.g. (g)Green = Green)

Use (n) for a new line of text.

For example, the code (y)Graffiti(n)(b)System(n)(r)Is(n)(g)Cool! would result in the following tag:

2.3 Pick A Font (For Custom Text)

The graffiti system also supports different fonts to be used alongside your custom text. Note: You will need these fonts to be installed on your computer to have the tag display properly! Failure to install the required font will cause the tag to be shown in regular "Arial" font. The custom fonts we use are:

Image - Comic Sans

Image - Diploma (Click HERE for download link)

Image - Dripping (Click HERE for download link)

Image - Levi Brush (Click HERE for download link)





3. Commands

  • /graffiti
    This command opens a box to allow you to customize your graffiti tag.




4. Frequently asked questions

  • How do I install the fonts that I can use?
    For a full guide on how to install new fonts to your system, please click HERE
  • Can I do a tag inside a property?
    No, you can't, sadly.
  • How do you get a spray can to make graffiti?
    You need to join an official gang. The spray can will automatically be default in your weapon list.
  • If I am in an unofficial gang can someone else create a tag for me?
    Yes, they can.

Bit of a late response but still.

It's there until server restart or even possibly crash.

The font size is predefined to avoid extra-large graffities which might quickly transform into abusing.
