Wow! It was finished before the roadmap does it! Good work.

Gonna take some icons for a blip pack, :P

I think I could make some Hi-res blips? Or a portal icon as a spawn? An ambulance as an ambulance car or a red & blue car as police cars? Awesome! :mrgreen:

This is a very nice release! I'm waiting for this since i came to mta!

But I'm confused (as natural) i didn't see any time limit in the script, why you tell us that we could try it for 6 months. Of course it could be a joke.

And mta it self is planning custom blips for mta v 1.4.

Sorry for asking, but that is in my nature :)

Anyway Talidan, you did a great job again! Thank you for sharing this with us, if you were a girl i would kiss you ;)

Updated the resource to version 1.0.1.

This version makes the radar blips scale to GTA's default size for blip icons on the radar. You can use exports.customblips:setCustomBlipRadarScale(blip,1) to restore to previous behaviour.

New added functions are setCustomBlipAlpha and setCustomBlipRadarScale, see the wiki for details.

I actually sent valhalla this back in 2009 to test. Apparently they ignored it.

some people wouln't know a good thing if it crawled up their butt.

Talidan it seems you've pretty much satisfied all requests relating to radars save for 1: a directional blip so we can see what direction peds/players are facing. any feelings towards that particular challenge?

Doable, though I'm sure there will be messiness i have not anticipated. GTA has it's own built-in directional blips (used on the local player, and on peds during stealth missions) that would be much better to use, if we could hack them in.

Yep, that directional blip just like the player's blip. You can see that in the GTA SA mission Madd Dogg Rhymes.

That would be good if you could hack it.

Yep, directional blips are really cool, maybe you can hack and add them:

That's blip #2, but afaik you can't change the colour of it. I'm not sure about this, but would setElementRotation not work on a blip, to represent their rotation?

And I find 2 problems with this resource, 1 which is already acknowledged.

1. Script is not aware when HUD is hidden.

2. There needs to be a function like setBlipVisibleTo.
