Arrest Warrant testing
I've been working for a while now on version 1.0 of my Arrest Warrant mod. Like Minecraft's Adventure Update, you might call this the Vehicle Update. I've added a bunch of stuff related to vehicles! :D And also several non-vehicle things.
The script has grown so large and complex that I'd like to do some closed testing before release — I say "closed", but basically anyone who asks can test the new version.
- You need PM rights (i.e. 10 posts or more), or some other way I can send you the download.
- You should provide bug reports and/or other feedback.
Big thanks to anyone who volunteers!
Here's an abridged list of changes in the update:
- Police can identify vehicles.
- Police can tail vehicles (poorly).
- Stolen vehicles are often reported.
- Traffic felonies alert police.
- When investigating cops lose you, they randomly guess which way you went.
- Improved detection of jumping, bumping people.
- Improved alert indicator flashing.
- More cop speech.
- You have to meet a contact to pay bribes.
- Police radio sounds disabled.
- Lower chance of being identified at night and/or in rain.
- More INI settings.
- Bug fixes, tweaks, etc.
Haven't tried out your previous version, but I'm definitely interested after hearing the possibilities. Count me in, pm me or you can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
*edit* just found out that I don't have PM rights (how do you obtain those anyway?) so u can email me If u are still looking for volunteers
@Killerfist666 you have PM rights now
Hello! I would love to be a part of the beta testing! I love the other version of this mod and hope I can help! Thanks! PS I'm not sure is I have PM rights but I can give you my email.
Oops, I could've sworn I subscribed to this thread, but I guess not. :facepalm:
Killerfist, I've PMed you the download. gwizzzy, to earn PM rights, you need at least 10 posts. Or your e-mail address is fine.
Oh okay! I don't think i have PM rights just yet as I'm fairly new but my email is email@example.com (that is 3 Z's by the way)
E-mailed the update. :)
P.S. I am subscribed to this thread, yet I didn't get a notification for the last reply. Hmmm...
I've been really busy for the past several months, but finally I have an Arrest Warrant update ready for testing. Anyone who's interested, please download and let me know if anything breaks or weird shit happens.
Changes in v1.1 Prerelease 6
