    Feature Overview

    Script Category: Damages/Weapons
    Script Author(s): michael
    Beta Tester(s): LakeB, Lamar_K, Tom, Kiko, Ryhes, Jason, Respi
    Comments/Description: It have been suggested several times to create an injury system for more realism, there have also been suggestions about custom/realistic damages, you might think they were left out without being noticed, that's not true! Some of you may know or may not know about our previous injury and damages system, damages were unbalanced and you weren't able to kill an injured person with any weapon except fist, which was pretty much retarded in my opinion, when you have a shootout - you go and stomp every victim that lays on the ground... well, we've put an end to that! With this new rewritten system, the injured person can move his camera around, can be killed (ofcourse with weapons too, not only fists) and what not, you'll no longer have to roleplay shooting them and ask them to /acceptdeath instead of shooting them for real!

    Feature Explanation

    The system is simple, it consists of few important commands, everything else is automated. Every hit/shot the player took the last 15 minutes are stored in their /damages information, which will show up above their head if they're in injured mode, screenshots will be shown below.

    † Weapons that do actual damage are:
    • All melee weapons from Brass to Chainsaw
    • Colt45, Silenced Colt45, Deagle
    • MP5, Tec-9, UZI
    • Shotgun, Sawn-off Shotgun
    • AK-47, M4, Country Rifle, Sniper Rifle
    † Below is a screenshot of how the custom damages are defined:
    [​IMG]
    If the player got hit or shot and 15 minutes pass, their /damages information will be reset unless someone hits/shoots them again in the meantime, the timer resets and this player will have to wait 15 more minutes in order for their damages to reset, it's made like that, so if they heal and get shot at again, their damages information won't be spammed with 30-40 shots that a normal person can't survive.

    Commands, restrictions and screenshots

    [​IMG]
    Once you get in injured mode, ofcourse, you won't be able to do some actions, we thought of it and we didn't want to restrict too many commands, so the final decision was the following:

    † Available commands & limits/restrictions:
    • [​IMG] /revive [playerid] - Self explanatory, revives an injured player nearby if you have a first aid kit.
    • [​IMG] /rm [playerid] - Removes the mask of an injured player nearby.
    • [​IMG] /damages [playerid] - Shows the damages information of an injured player nearby.
    • [​IMG] /acceptdeath - Ends your life if atleast 60 seconds passed since you've been injured.
    • [​IMG] /passfa - Pass a first aid kit to a nearby player.
    • [​IMG] /exitdm - Exits the death/afterlife mode after the time's up.
    • [​IMG] You can't carry more than 2 first aid kits on yourself.
    • [​IMG] You can't use the first aid kit on yourself, another player must revive you.
    • [​IMG] You can't use the /shout, /sms, /maskon & /maskoff commands.
    • [​IMG] You can't use the normal talk, you'll use auto-/low instead.
    • [​IMG] You can't jump, walk, run, crouch, roll, swim etc.
    • [​IMG] You can't use any animation or special action.
    • [​IMG] You can't get in a vehicle as passenger or driver.
    • [​IMG] You can't drop any weapon, you can still /passgun, though.
    • [​IMG] You can't revive/unmask any injured player while you're in injured/death mode.
    NOTE: Trying to abuse RETURN/G to enter a vehicle will NOT work, you'll be put back in injured animation on the place you've been injured, the second time the system will force death on you!

    If that still doesn't make it clear for you, we've prepared few screenshots to see the system in action!
    (The following screenshots may be outdated as the system was improved recently!)

    Shown on the right, is how other player see you when you die or bleed out, we're taking advantage of the SA-MP 0.3.7 actors so we can leave a dead body laying in blood on the place you died.
    After you die, you'll spawn normally, noone will be able to revive you and you will not spawn at the hospital, but your normal faction spawn/house spawn.
