Suggestion for (MTA, Forum, website):MTA

Suggestion: Change the spike strips from being in the player's inventory to being in the vehicle's inventory

Why should this be added?: If you look in real life, you'll never see officer's just carrying spike strips around. Aside from looking very odd, chances of officer injury from puncture wounds from the spikes would be very high. What I'd like to see is any vehicle accesible by officers at Senior Lead (or whatever the first rank you get access to spikes) and above have 2 sets of spike strips in them, as usually departments have 2 sets of "Stop Sticks" mounted in the trunk

Anything else you'd like to add?:Pretty please? Would free up my limited on-perosn inventory

[FR:SA] Discussion / Taser vs Pepperspray
« on: October 17, 2017, 09:16:12 pm »
I can't remember who exactly was part of the convo, but yesterday we had a talk about which would you rather? Get shot with a taser, or be pepper sprayed. Seeing as I have had both happen to me (although the pepper spray was an environmental exposure, the spray was deployed in the room, but it still affected me) I would definately prefer a taser over the pepper spray. Judging by these reactions, what would you guys prefer?

Off Topic Discussion / Remember this?

So this thread is to show things from our past that seem absolutely prehistoric today. It could be technology related, automotive related, sport related, or anything else you could think of.

Off Topic Discussion / Computer filetype question
« on: July 19, 2017, 05:18:42 pm »
Don't know if anyone will even be able to answer this, but I got a really wierd file type, and I can't find any info about it. I'm almost thinking it may be malware related, because several programs (Application Host, Explorer.exe, ArcGIS.exe) will periodically become unresponsive, and one file that I see in the windows error report is ntdll.dll

I will post a screenshot to show you the files, the file extension is .BKPCPT



Any ideas?

And please, no flame for still using windows XP. this is on my panasonic toughbook, and as much as I'd like to upgrade, I don't want to risk messing up the touchscreen drivers

[FR:SA] Suggestions / Warning system for admins/mods
« on: July 14, 2017, 09:48:59 pm »
Suggestion for (MTA, Forum, website):MTA

Suggestion: A system for staff to issue warnings to players, and it keep a record of the warnings for other staff to see

Why should this be added?: Both @Caracatus1 and @greenops011 agree this would be useful so that we can keep track of if a player has been previously warned by another staff member, we can take that into consideration when/if we have to punish them

Anything else you'd like to add?: I know there are numerous resources out there for warning systems, it wouldn't be hard to tailor one to our liking

Off Topic Discussion / Just a heads up
« on: June 05, 2017, 02:49:48 am »
I know quite a few of you have been wondering where I am. I know @SCPD was concerned, as I was on the server almost every day, and then noone has seen or heard from me for a while. I just want to say I am ok. I don't want to be like the last comissionner of SAHP and disappear without an explanation, so (this will be fun), here goes.

I've been really stressed over the past week or so. I got some news I knew was coming, but I guess I fooled myself into thinking it wouldn't. An idividual I was involved in a court case with will be having a day parole hearing in the very near future, and in October he will be getting what in Canada is called a "statutory release". For those of you who don't know what that is, here is a link: https://www.legalline.ca/legal-answers/statutory-release/

How I originally got involved with this person is not a fun story, but the more I keep it pent up, the more I will get stressed. I know this may not be the best place to discuss this, but I consider you guys my friends, and I know that you will all be respectful.

When I was 3, this man, Majid Abbasy, was in a relationship with my mom. On several occasions, he would babysit me at his apartment. In 1995, is when he began touching me inappropriately. At one point or another, he went away for 6 months, (supposedly for an arranged marriage). When he came back, he started touching me again. After about 2 months, I don't know why, but he disappeared.

It took me a really long time to say anything. I was 7 when I reported it to the teachers at my school, who in turn notified Childrens Aid Society. Because so much time had passed, CAS pretty much said there was nothing they could do.  I didn't talk about it for a long time after.

In 2007, I got into some trouble myself, and ended up getting charged. The detective that I was dealing with was really good, and for whatever reason decided to recommend me getting bailed out. In all honesty, looking back, im surprised.

In 2011, I decided I was going to formally report what happened to the police, but I wasn't going to just go to any officer. I was able to get in direct contact with that detective I dealt with. I felt, if he was willing to trust me enough to let me out on bail, I could trust him. I told him what happened to me, knowing full well the likelyhood of a conviction was very slim as it would literally be my word against his, as 15 years had passed, and I knew they could suggest I confused the facts (which they did). But he felt that there was enough of a chance to get a conviction to arrest him. http://www.lfpress.com/news/london/2011/12/15/19126741.html

So this scumbag gets out on bail. and you know what he does? He sexually assaults the children of the person who bailed him out. The person who said he was like a brother to him. He gets taken into custody again, with 26 new charges.

Fast forward to 2012, to my trial. After almost a whole year in court, he is aquitted. The judge made it clear, that while he did believe that the accused did something to me, unfortunately it wasn't proved beyond a reasonable doubt. However, the accused was not released, as now he had to face the other charges.

I could have gone to that trial, but it would have been too difficult for me. I went to the court date where they read the verdict. Guilty of 11 charges of sexual assault, 5 of sexual interference, and 5 of invitation to sexual touching.  He was sentenced to 6 years less time served, which gave him a total of 3 years in custody.

As I was a victim, I was able to get (and still am) all the parole updates, and information from the Correctional Services of Canada.

The part that makes it hard for me, is that while he was out on bail in regards to my case, he was under a no contact order. That means he is not allowed to communicate, directly or indirectly, including by electronic means, with me. I found out, that he had done a google search on me to find out where I lived. Unfortunately, that wasn't a violation of his conditions.

Now I'm worried that when he does get released, he may come looking for me.

I know its a long way off until October, but it is weighing heavily on my mind. That is why I haven't been online and in game for the last little while. I will be trying to get in game next week, I just don't want you guys to think somethings wrong (even though really, there is), and I don't want you guys to think I've just abandoned the server. I just need some time to work through this.

I know @Blast3r or @Nick will maybe say, "we aren't your counsellors". But sometimes its nice just to have people to talk to, that won't judge you.

I'm sorry to dump this on everyone, but I feel its healtier for me to at least get it off my chest

Off Topic Discussion / What do you think? Hero, or traitor?
« on: May 19, 2017, 12:30:05 am »
Just watched "Snowden" today, and I gotta say, I never realized just how deep in the shit we all are. The fact that sooooooo much data is being collected on innocent people is shocking. Of course people treat him as a villan, a traitor if you will. But I think of him as a hero. What do you think?

So as we all know, gtapolicemods has been down for quite some time. What many people don't know is you can still visit an archived copy of the site. I'm not 100% sure if you can download the mods from the archived site, but I say give it a try.

This thread is for you guys to either A: request someone find an archived copy of a site that is no longer online, or B: share a link you have to an archived version of a site that is no longer online.

Just a note, as it is an archived copy of a site from a previous date, there is no guarentee about content you're specifically looking for being there, as well as no guarentee about functionality

Without further ado, GPM:  http://web.archive.org/web/20140715101406/http://gtapolicemods.com:80/content.php

Off Topic Discussion / Post your PC specs
« on: May 18, 2017, 01:09:46 am »
This topic is a place for you to share in depth details of your computers specs. The reason for this is sometimes while in game, people talk about the different mods they use, and you want to find out if your PC can handle them. Rather than trying to type the details in game or in discord, it may be easier to just save your Belarc Advisor computer profile page as an HTML, you will need to convert it to an image file (png) as the attachment limit is 128 kb and the html file is about 293 kb. use http://www.page2images.com/Convert-HTML-to-Image-or-PDF-online to convert it to an image file

[FR:SA] Suggestions / Ability to use speed radar while in vehicles
« on: May 17, 2017, 05:12:02 pm »

Suggestion for (MTA, Forum, website): MTA

Suggestion: Add the ability to use speed radar while in vehicles (i.e. helicopter, policecars)

Why should this be added?: Would definately make things more interesting, as if you are partnered with someone while in a heli, one of you could fly, and the other could run radar, and you could radio in the target vehicle to ground units

Anything else you'd like to add?: Just looking at the default "realdriveby" lua files, it is definately possible to restrict the driveby function to specific vehicles, and to specific weapons. I can try to mock up a script file that would be perfect for the server. I can also look into making it so only the player in the passenger seat can use it.

I'm sure you're all aware of the global ransomware crisis thats currently taking place. And as most of you probably know, the most at risk systems are those running older versions of microsoft's operating systems, including XP, and server 2003. Even more problematic is the people who either can't update their systems, or don't even know its still possible.

If you are still running Windows XP (My panasonic toughbook has XP Pro because the touchscreen drivers for windows 7 don't work properly), it is extremely recommended you read the info at this link, and follow the instructions. Yes! It is still possible to get Windows XP updates, all the way until 2019

Greetings officers,

As your newly appointed Commissioner of the San Andreas Highway Patrol, I want to tell you a little about my goals and plans for the department. First off, many of the activities that the old Command had will still take place (see http://forum.sapdfr.advanced-gaming.org/index.php?topic=209.0 for info). However, there will be some minor changes as well as some new things brought forward.

First off, I will be changing the requirement to use Teamspeak to using Discord. In addition, having a microphone WILL BE required, as we will be using the voice channels for dispatch duties (reporting in traffic stops, requesting license plate checks, when on scene keeping dispatch updated). We want to avoid having our activities flooding central.

The vehicle requirement (downloading and installing mods), will be slightly changed so that even people with lower end PC's can use them. Please download and install from this thread (thanks @SCPD ) http://forum.sapdfr.advanced-gaming.org/index.php?topic=460.0


In addition, when on patrol, you MUST wear this (http://www.mediafire.com/file/53v1bxhx2k67a4i/RCMP_POLICE_SKIN_ROAD_TRAFIC_%5BBETA_V1.0%5D.rar) high-visibility skin. I know it says RCMP on the skin, but its the only skin I could find with a high visibility vest (that wasn't orange of course). The reason for this requirement is officer safety. You are going to be working on the highway, where the risk of being struck by motorists when outside your vehicle will be greater. Studies show when officers wear high-visibility clothing, their safety is greatly enhanced as motorists can see them better.

With admin approval (I'll DM @Blast3r on discord regarding this), I would like to do "I'm a civilian" type patrols, similar to what is shown here:
, just to make things fun and interesting.

On a final note, if you are interested in joining SAHP, please direct-message me on discord to discuss how to get involved.

Always on duty,
Greenops011

I am planning on making a video series to answer frequently asked questions that players ask in game. First few topics in the videos will be:

How to pull someone over?
How to run someone's ID/ license plate check?
How request transport/towtruck/medics?
Proper response protocols (ie, responding code 1, code 2, code 3)

As we all know, there are players from many different countries, who use many different languages. In the videos, I will be giving a verbal explanation of how I'm doing each thing. So that we can better help all players, I am looking for people who can translate english to the following languages, and who would be willing to provide a voice-over for the videos (of course any people helping will be given a credit in the videos :) )

Languages to be translated to: Polish, Spanish, Turkish (not high priority, but would be nice)

Also, let me know what other things might be good for this video series.

Hopefully with this seires, not only can we attract more players, but also reduce the amount of people who just kill peds out of sheer frustration because they don't know how to do something

Archive / vehicle check
« on: May 09, 2017, 02:55:02 pm »
Bug Title: Vehicle check always showing no results
Description: When running ALPR I get a notification that a vehicle has an entry (unpaid tickets, warrants, etc). When I right click on the vehicle, and then click "request info", central runs the plate, and it always comes back with "I have no results for that vehicle". Clearly not every single vehicle should result in that. While you can request a tow, and you still get the exp as if it is a valid tow, it seems very unrealistic that there would be a discrepancy between the ALPR database and what the dispatcher would have. There has to be a way to link the two together properly
How can we reproduce the bug?:  Just try to run a license plate through central. 100% of the time you will get no results
