Partially allow "dropzone"
« on: March 15, 2018, 08:33:41 pm »
Why not allow the owners of servers to use the files "dropzone"? Make the "Use Modifications" function in the server config. You could also make filters .blz, .bin, or .eez. For example, you do not want the .bin files to be used on the server - you take it and disconnect it, but others will work.

I'm like a person who has almost 1500 hours and the owner of the server would like to see the function, since I was already bored with the original models of transport, character and so on.

And believe me, I'm not the only one who wants to see this. And maybe this will even a little revitalize the client.

It is due to this and SAMP is more popular MTA, because it's good when the game can be customized to suit your tastes. But here in SAMP there are no filters for modification and that's why there are cheating modifications.

I hope that you will implement this. Good luck.

Dropzone folder is meant in the original game for modifications.This creates a few problems:

Loosing synchronization - the server has no idea what the client is doing.
how do you deal with people with a huge variety of mods?

I dont know you and your tastes but the main problem is the lack of original game mods.From what I know there is only 1 role play server -- RLS.Most of the others are freroam style with some mods.

The kind of modifications that can be done in JC2 MP are mind boggling since there is direct access to the game files(sounds, textures,collision files, game events ). The server allows complete control of the player and game enviroment.

Cheating happens.Even Billion dollar companies  like Rockstar EA UBISOFT cant really stop the cheaters.

Almost everything that you can do with dropzone mods can be recreated or closely emulated with the scripting API, with the benefit of knowing exactly what assets your clients are using.
