Online Random Events for Single Player v1.2



Support for this mod has ended.

Adds random events to single player that are inspired by those from online.

What's new v1.2:
-Added an option in the .ini to change blips into the default blip (This was done to prevent blips from breaking in the future)
-Changed the arrangement of guards at crate drops
-Crate drops will now sometimes spawn with a flare


How to install:
-Install Script Hook by Alexander Blade then drag the "OnlineEvents.asi" and "OnlineEvents.ini" files into the GTA V directory.

General Info:
-The type of event is picked at random.
-Events include crate drops, armored trucks, assassinations, smuggler vehicles, and special vehicles. All events include several variations that are also picked at random.
-By default, you will have ~7 minutes (real world) to start the event if you choose to do so.
-By default, there is a ~5 minute cool down between events until the next event.
-Events are marked with appropriate blips on the map.
-You are notified of events starting/ending above the radar, along with a beep sound.
-By editing the .ini file you can change times for events, and disable beep sounds.

Crate Drops:
-Crates with various contents will drop around the map.
-Crates are guarded by armed smugglers looking to have the crate for themselves.
-Upon finding the crate you can pick it up to receive loot.
-Loot will consist of an amount of money and a weapon.
-With each crate drop you have a 1 in 25 chance of a special crate drop which includes higher quality loot.
-See screenshots one and two

Armored Trucks:
-Armored trucks will travel around the map.
-If you decide to go hunt one down, you will need to blow the back doors by using a sticky bomb, etc.
-Upon blowing the doors a random amount of cash cases will drop for you to then pick up.
-Blowing the doors of a armored truck will give you a 3 star wanted level.
-See screenshot three

-A random NPC will have a hit placed on them.
-You must go and find that NPC and kill them.
-Upon killing the NPC you will receive money for completing the hit.
-See screenshot four

Smuggler Vehicles:
-Smuggler vehicles are marked vehicles that are known to be used by smugglers.
-You must find the vehicle and destroy it to prevent the smugglers from continuing to use it.
-Upon destroying the vehicle you will receive money for doing so.
-See screenshot five

Special Vehicles:
-Special vehicles are marked vehicles that have been requested to be stolen.
-You must find them and steal them.
-Upon stealing a special vehicle you will gain a 2 star wanted level.
-Before turning the vehicle in you must respray it a different color to prevent the police from noticing it.
-After respraying the vehicle you must drive it down to the docks to turn it in for a money reward.
-See screenshot six

Known Issues:
-The armored trucks doors must be open completely (Open fully on the hinge) for money to fall out of the truck. This means it will take a few seconds for cash to drop sometimes.
-If you use a different time duration for your game, mission times will change (Times mentioned above are for a normal time duration). You can fix this by going in the .ini file and changing the times for events. If you freeze the game time you will not get any random events.

Change log:
-Initial release
-Fixed no payment for assassinations
-Fixed despawning issues if the player died while on certain events
-Added beeps to messages
-Added .ini with various options
-Fixed broken blip

    So has the new update broken anything with this mod? Because it doesn't work anymore, and I have noticed several of my other mods have stopped working all but besides a few.

    @Suppa K
    This mod was design so if RStar updates all you have to do is update ScriptHookV (Not Community ScriptHook V)

    I didn't realize I downloaded this without rating...thanks

    @Euphoria Actually the mod doesn't state if the game updates, that all that needs update is ScriptHookV

    First time this happens. Whenever there is a crate event, when the dudes start shooting at me, the game freezes, giving a don't send type error.

    hey pal can you morph this mod with the one you made that gives online weapons? Like crates would drop those online weapons but in special crates only, that'd be great

    You should release the source code of this mod, it is a very good script and users may improve it with new random events
