Notable Changes

Click to collapse [-]
  • You can now use the new onPlayerResourceStart server-side event to trigger when client is ready! Thanks to Lpsd.
  • You can now detect element interior or dimension change through two new client and server-side events onElementInteriorChange and onElementDimensionChange – should reduce some of your code! Thanks to Patrick and Strix.
  • You can now edit element bone behavior through 7 new bone manipulation functions! Great for some dynamic animations. Get started at setElementBonePosition and setElementBoneRotation. Thanks to Saml1er.
  • More vehicle customisation options! You can now edit vehicle dummy positions per vehicle. See setVehicleDummyPosition. Thanks to botder.
  • More audio customisation with sound effect parameters! See setSoundEffectParameter. Thanks to Strix and Sarrum.
  • More client download transfer box customisation options! See for example onClientTransferBoxProgressChange. Thanks to botder and CrosRoad95.
  • You can now allocate custom objects and vehicles through engineRequestModel. One of the most sought after features in a long time. Thanks to TheNormalnij.
  • You can now use scalable vector graphics (SVG) in MTA! See svgCreate for more info. Thanks to Lpsd.
  • You can now use peds and vehicles as the camera target. Thanks to TheNormalnij.
  • A lot more features for scripters to build even more immersive experiences with!
  • Many synchronization improvements!
  • Many varying size fixes, quality of life improvements, updates and security enhancements!
  • Many default resource fixes, refactors and upgrades, including webmap working once again! We have also improved the detection of world objects in map editor (editor_main resource), so you can select many more objects that you couldn't before - such as bushes, fences and many more! You can now also remove world objects inside interiors. This should help mappers a lot.

Backwards Compatibility

6 Backwards Incompatible Changes

These changes will take effect in 1.6.0:

  • callRemote callbacks currently set the error code to nil when there is no error. In 1.6.0, to be consistent with fetchRemote, the error code reported will be 0. See GitHub #294.
  • Since July 2016 if you provide an invalid string like "randomstring" when a function expects a number, the string will be treated as 0 and raise a script warning. In 1.6.0 this will be an error. You will still be able to provide strings containing numbers (e.g. "100" and "12.34"), this change only affects invalid strings. See GitHub #1043.
  • When providing a width and height of (0, 0) to createBrowser or guiCreateBrowser you will encounter a script error instead of a warning. The warning was introduced Feb 2019. See GitHub #1069.
  • Some functions expect only unsigned integers (positive numbers), and since Jan 2016 providing negative numbers would be a warning. This will now be an error. See GitHub #1070.
  • Since Aug 2015, we replaced the custom mtalocal:// URL scheme with http://mta/resourceName/blah.html. This mtalocal:// URL scheme will now be removed. See GitHub #1071.
  • The previously unused z argument in getElementsWithinRange now calculates elements in 3D space instead of 2D space. See GitHub #1994.

This list is incomplete and we may introduce more changes later.
