  New developers wanted - scripter and modeler
Posted by: bartekPL - 05-05-2018, 13:13 - Forum: News - No Replies

New developers wanted - scripter and modeler!

Due to situation that our team don't have much time to do anything for server like before, we decided to open special recruitment for new scripter and 3D modeler.


Scripter Recruitment


To apply for NFS:SA scripter, you have to meet requirements listed below:
  • Age: 16+
  • At least 6 months of experience with NFSSA
  • At least intermediate skills in Lua and MTA:SA and some general programming skill
  • Should be familliar with MySQL
  • Communicative English skills
  • Some free time and not expecting high revenue (which depends on amount of donates – so it’s only symbolic)
Also, you have to answer those questions:
  1. Name/nickname:
  2. Age:
  3. Country:
  4. English skills (1-10):
  5. Experience with NFSSA:
  6. Experience with programming in Lua and MTA:SA:
  7. What’s your general programming skill? Do you know any other programming language?:
  8. [Lua] What’s the difference between local and global variable? How we declare them and when/where should we use them?:
  9. [Lua] What’s the difference between passing variable to a function by a reference and by value? How are passed tables, strings and numbers?:
  10. [Lua] What are coroutines? Can we do something useful with them?:
  11. [Lua] What’s OOP? What are advantages of using it? How do we declare classes and create their objects? Show some example of your code of OOP in Lua (declaration + usage example, max 40 lines of code):
  12. Do you have some powerful MTA:SA script, made by you, that you can show to us and prove your skills?:
  13. Why do you want to become an NFS:SA scripter? What would you like to take care of and how much free time would you have to achieve this? How can we trust you to give access to files?:
  14. As an NFS:SA developer, what do you expect from us?:

And to show your skills, you have to make a following MTA script as a task:

Make a script, that draws 3D icons in front of few garages in doherty.
  • Script loads XYZ position, icon RGB color, garage name and icon file from XML database, which is client-side.
  • Each icon should be stored as own OOP class object.
  • Used OOP class should have own render function (with all required calculations for a single icon) that is called from master render function (with loop through global container).
  • You should render icon only if you are nearby it and it is on screen (also should be properly scaled according to distance to keep perspective).
  • Icon should be rendered using dxTexture, which is created from given file (you can hardocde few icons in meta.xml, icons can be random images in grayscale with alpha channel, becuase they are colorized using given RGB color, but with proper power of two resolution).
  • DxTexture format: loaded as DXT5 texture from .PNG files.
  • If you use one icon file for few garages, you have to keep only one copy of texture in memory instead of having own texture by each icon – to achieve this you may need additional utility functions with table with data or utility OOP class for managing textures.
  • If you enter an icon (you may need invisible marker for each icon), client sends message to server which outputs on chat (and additionaly saves to own log file with current date and time) name of entered icon and nickname of player who did it. After it, server sends back message to player and then this icon is destroyed on  client-side and is no longer accessible for player (until resource restart or reconnect).
  • If all icons that share same texture get destroyed, this texture should be also removed from memory – you may need additional counter for each texture in texture utility script and destroy texture when it gets down to 0.
  • Same with loading textures – only needed textures should be loaded into memory.
  • For destroying icons, icon class should have a Destroy function that releases memory used by object, removes object from global container and calls texture manager to release used dxTexture (if possible).
  • When resource stops, Destroy function should be called on all icons that exist yet to make sure that memory is cleaned properly.

If you have problem with some part of this task or understanding something, just contact and ask for help Quindo or bartekPL.

Filled application and done task script please send to bartekPL.

  Second Server Anniversary! + Sad news?
Posted by: bartekPL - 03-03-2018, 00:16 - Forum: News - Replies (20)

Second Server Anniversary!
We are glad to inform you that in the 4th March (sunday) evening there will be exactly 2 years since server started!


That's a lot of time but for us those 2 years passed like 2 days. We are so happy that you, players, are still with us! It's amazing how this project changed and improved with you. We hope you will be with us for next 2 years.

Due to this special time we would like to give you few bonuses:
  • since 3th to 5th (3 days, saturday to monday) x2 RP and cash from all races
  • all diamond hunts done on 3th, 4th or 5th March will give you guaranteed jackpot with guaranteed extra reward! (current progress doesn't matter, it can be even day #1)
  • if you join server on 4th March you will receive free premium for 2 days! (you must join server at least once between 00:00 and 23:59 4th)
  • many special URL events with high rewards multiplier

Special event for anniversary?

And here we start sad part of news.
We will try our best to organise an anniversary event in the sunday evening but we can't promise that.
If anything will change - we will inform you and update this post immediately.
Reason for this is described below.


What's next?

In every sideproject developer life there is a moment, when he has less and less time and motivation to do anything related with that project.
Exactly same situation happened here. After two years of intense and volunteer work, our whole NFS:SA Team is too tired of it. Many of you already noticed less activity from our side. Everyone started following their own path and focusing on more important things - university, work, family...

We don't have as much time for the server as before and we have to use it smartly.
Because of it we decided to suspend updates with new features and only time to time give you update with maps, improvements and bugfixes.

The last "new feature" update we are going to release are promised Muscle Cars in few weeks (in the worst situation even months, but we try our best to make it as soon as possible).
After that we will work only on bugfixes, improvements, and sometimes add new maps and vinyls.

Of course we don't abandon project - we will still moderate and manage server and help you like before.


NFS:SA Team

Posted by: bartekPL - 17-09-2017, 00:57 - Forum: News - Replies (24)

Update 16-17.09.2017
Server will be closed for about an hour or two.



Dyno Tuning has finally appeared on NFS:SA!

Dyno Tuning allows you to adjust:
  • Drivetrain
  • Tire pressure
  • Brake bias
  • Suspension stiffness
  • Suspension bias
  • Steering angle
  • Ride height
  • Center of mass
  • Downforce
In performance shop you can make dyno setups and assign them for each race mode separately. You can have unlimited amount of dyno setups, but every next setup costs $1,000 where everyone has 1 free setup per car. Premium users have 3 free setups per car.

Every setting requires to have some performance upgrades installed. If this upgrade is higher level (Street/Race/Pro) then effect of setting will be stronger.

Dyno Tuning also contains test mode on URL Bayview Speedway track.

[Image: KW3h2oz.png]

Also, now while changing performance parts you don't have to rebuy them every time - now they will save and next time you can install them for free. Remember that this happens only for performance parts and bought parts don't share between cars - even if you have 2 mananas, parts bought on first won't be available on second car. If you sell your car, you will have to buy the parts again.

Score system changes

Yes, again. In last update we introduced dynamic score but we realised it was fail - scores were changing too often and get bugged too often. We decided to come back to old static score system with some improvements.

URL system changes
  • Increased rewards - mostly money
  • Increased rewards from custom events - up to x3.0
  • Now even last player receives points and reward
  • Slightly improved lobby matching system
  • Added auto-lockout for rejoining rooms too often
  • Added reminders about incoming custom URL events
New cars - Club and Kuruma + Buggy change

Yes! Two new cars!

Club is a regular FWD car which belongs to D class.
Kuruma is AWD and it's a new D class unique car. Kuruma replaces Buggy and you have to find parts for it. Players who already started searching Buggy parts or have already unlocked it will have it reseted and will have to search for parts again, but for Kuruma as it's new unique.

What about Buggy then?

Buggy got totally changed - it belongs now to SUV class and has it's handing and stats, but to unlock Buggy you have to finish task Off-Road Champion Level 3 - Win 60 Off-Road races - just like with Locust 69 which is a reward by winning URL tournaments.

Players who didn't unlock Buggy yet but got this task finished, will have it unlocked after update.

B Class Tuning Update
  • All B cars except Mamba got full tuning update with secondary bodykits.
  • Jester is first car on server which got 2 new bodykits and has 3 in total!

  Update 19-20.08.2017
Posted by: bartekPL - 19-08-2017, 22:27 - Forum: News - Replies (17)

Update 19-20.08.2017
Server will be closed down for about an hour due to required maintenance


Optimization - NFS:SA Booster

[Image: cBmVLSR.png]

This update provides some optimization and memory usage improvements and tweaks.
The most important thing is NFS:SA Booster - external Windows application to increase performance and quality while playing on NFS:SA server!
Detailed info about what is this and how does it work you can find here: https://www.nfssa.com/booster.php

NFS:SA Booster is already supported by server and you can try it now without waiting for update.




Changes in URL system
  • Because problem infinite loading screens while joining URL has been solved, we turned back on URL bans but with little changes: 24h for connection lost, 48h for normal leave and no URL ban for IRC / kick / bugged loading screen (rare)
  • Added limit - max 2 tournaments per event
  • Improved matching system - now players will be matched slower, but it will be based now on general skill with URL instead of "who first" rule. It means that there will be low chance to match up newbie with very good player unless there aren't enough players in lobby


Score system and handlings

Score system has been changed a bit. It should be now much more accurate than before and performance test less bugged.
  • Changed amount of score gained by upgrading parts like engine, tires or suspension
  • Changed score range (min-max) for every class and car
Major handling changes for:
  • Futo
  • Buffalo
  • A-Type
  • Blista Compact
  • Flash
  • Euros
  • ZR-130
  • Mamba
  • Turismo
  • Counthash
Because Futo and Buffalo handling changes are serious, there also changes characteristic of their toptimes and records. Due to that, all Futo and Buffalo records have been disabled. It means that in-game those records won't be visible and will have to be done again, but you can still check them on website as archive records by selecting proper option here: https://www.nfssa.com/racestats.php?week=topofalltimes


Other changes
  • New rankingboard's algorithm - now it should shows proper position all the time
  • Disabled collision of torches at start lines on maps
  • Minor fixes and improvements
