Fuel Script V Mod 0.8

Fuel Script V 0.8 by Sakis25
The first fuel mod for GTA V!

  • Fuel bar above the minimap
  • Engine stops if you run out of fuel
  • To refill fuel stop the car near a petrol station and sound the horn
  • You can also refill your car using the jerry can (hold L near vehicle)
  • Car fuel is stored for the last 10 vehicles
  • When you run low on gas the fuel bar turns red
  • Blips with petrol station locations on map
  • Map with petrol station locations included in archive

What's New in 0.8:
- New fuel bar design and colors
- Fuel consumption is now working only if you are in driver's seat
- If you run out of fuel a text is displayed above the fuel bar
- Bug fixes


To Do:

    @Narobic All right man, it's not that hard, actually. Just open the 'FuelScriptV.lua' file in Notepad. Find the '-- refuel key (for jerry can)' line (without quotes) and add the following line right after it 'local startfuelKey = Keys.G'. You must understand that 'G' can be replaced to any key you want 'cause this is your activation key. Well, the next step is to find this text 'PLAYER.IS_PLAYER_PRESSING_HORN (player)' and replace it with 'get_key_pressed(startfuelKey)'.
    That's all buddy. Enjoy. :)

    p.s. hello to California. I've been to LA two times as a tourist. :)

    @Slash_Alex Thanks so much! Really appreciate the help. LA's a nice place to visit, not the best place to live LoL. Let's just say that the crimes in GTAV aren't even close to how bad it can get here

    So since you can't set the price under 1, is there a way to change the price-to-fuel ratio to be more realistic? So like $2 for every gallon (roughly 4 liters)

    @Narobic You again. :) Listen, there is one way that could probably resolve this problem.
    You can speed up or slow down refueling. Faster you gas your car less money you spend.
    There are two these lines 'value.fuel = value.fuel + 0.0005' in the file. They are responsible for jerry can refueling.
    And two other lines like 'cars[1].fuel = cars[1].fuel + 0.001' and 'cars[1].fuel = cars[1].fuel + 0.002'. The first one for cars and the second one for bykes. So, higher the number - faster refueling.
    Try to play with these figures. At least that's all i can help.

    @Slash_Alex hi! You're tips have been helpful and I have modified this mod accordingly. However, is there a way you could prevent cash from being deducted completely (atm it's removing $1 from my account for every ???) I've had a look myself (and I have no idea what I'm looking at) but I'm not sure what I could change to make this happen without breaking the script. Any ideas?

    It may defeat the purpose, however, I'm currently running a zombie mod and I'd at least like to keep the immersion in tact. Who pays for fuel in an apocalypse anyway? We take, we don't bother.

    @Slash_Alex nevermind, I worked it out. However, now I need to work out how prevent the cash popping up in the top right hand corner when refueling and also how to toggle the refuel on and off, any ideas?

    also, is there any possibility of randomizing the amount of fuel that's available in cars?

    @fredofrog Yeah, man, it's all possible. Actually i did it. I can stop refueling by pressing the 'S' key and i made different amount of fuel and different fuel consumption for every TYPE of vehicles. Not for different car models (it would be too tricky and boring), but planes, boats, bykes and cars have different fuel consumption.
    If you want to prevent cash popping up in the corner while refueling just find this line 'UI.DISPLAY_CASH(true)' and replace 'true' with 'false'.
    And yes, it's possible to randomize the amount of fuel in cars (i did it). Just find this line 'value = {veh, fuel=math.random' and change first two figures. The first number is a lowest amount of fuel and the second one is a highest (AFAIR 12 is the highest).

    Actually i have reprogrammed this mod a lot and it would be too labor intensive for me to put all the changes i've done here. You can give me your e-mail, if you want, and i will sent my .lua file to you.
    p.s. I think it's even possible to make different fuel consumption for every vehicle model in the game, but i don't know how to do that and don't want to do that.

    @Slash_Alex thank you!!! It's funny, I tried to change the line below 'UI.DISPLAY_CASH(true)' to false trying to get that to work... However, It's now so obvious that was the line to change *face palm*.

    Also because I'm new here, I'm having trouble finding the pm tab to message you my email privately... :(

    @fredofrog It's not that hard actually to send me a PM. Pay attention of a green bar at the top of the site. There, on the right, between your name and a bell symbol you can see a dialogue symbol (like in comic books). Press it. The next step is to find on the left, on the same green bar a human bust symbol. This is the rightmost symbol from the left. It's called 'Users'. Press it and find me there. Just type my name in the search box. After you found me, click my name and you will see a huge green circle with three vertical dots on the right. Press it and choose the first line: 'start new chat with'. Here we go. It could be simpler, but it's not that hard anyway.

    @HECTOR1911 Actually this mod is dead and i had to reprogram this lua script myself to add the functionality you're talking about. That author himself won't do anything about this mod anymore.
