[Release] Area of Patrol - Set Area of Patrol, Draw Text & Time Included [AOP] [2.9]



This is a simple script that will set an RP area when a command is entered (see images). As of update 1.2 the RP area will also be displayed in the server list under the map title. Below is all the information you need to get started with this script. In update 1.6 I remade the voting system and made a drawtext function!

Usage / Common Commands

/pt - Peacetime toggle
/aopvote - Sends a message for players to vote for an RP area. In 1.6 and above this has a 3-minute timer.
/vote [Place Here] - This command is only active whilst there is a vote in progress (start vote with the above)
/aop [Some Place You Want]

It’s Features

  • Ability to set / change the area of patrol
  • Ability to have area of patrol votes
  • Peacetime toggle
  • Vote system (Still a WIP)
  • Drawtext on screen so people never forget the area of patrol
  • Time and date displayed for easy access
  • No PvP when peacetime is active
  • Area of patrol displayed on the server details on the server list
  • Big messages that stand out from other area of patrol scripts
  • Permission based, so those kiddos don’t change the area of patrol (ACE Perms)
  • Move the AOP text location easily from within the config. See config table below!
  • Unlimited* words to use as the AOP eg; this image
  • Toggle whether you want to use permissions for the commands in the config - No longer use No Perms version
  • Disabled ability to do drive-by’s when peacetime is active
  • Auto-AOP’s - Script can auto set AOP with x amount of players

*As many as the drawtext allows

Does it permanently show the AOP until changed so people don’t keep asking what the AOP is? Nice release though by the way!

No it does not. I might update to change the spawn points in the area of the RP so people know. or a join message in chat that says it idk.

I’m going to work on permissions first though so people don’t change it themselves.

@Johnyf1 Thanks appreciate that



Okay, thanks for the heads up. Will be using this on my server.

Question: If the AOP is set somewhere will new players spawn inside the AOP? Also a slight suggestion.



@JHodgson1 Maybe ^^^



Agreed. Set the spawn points with AOPs and keep it showing constantly! Will definitely be using this, thanks for the script.

You should add it so when a player joins, it displays the current spawn area.


@FAXES You could do it with this function with an event handler “onClientMapStart”

A small update

  • Added a feature for when the resource is first loaded to say RP : Not Set under the map name in the server list.

I may have a auto select RP area every x mins having it on a timer or random pick in the near future.

I am also focusing on getting the message to display the RP area when you join.
