Impromptu Races 1.8c



This script greatly benefits from Faster AI Drivers's effects.
Consider installing that mod if you're going to try Impromptu Races to get the best experience.

Traffic variety mods would also be a good idea to install, so you have different cars to race against.

This script lets you race anyone in the GTA V world. You see a nice car you want to race against? Do a burnout near it and challenge its driver!

You will be able to decide the starting and finishing points, simply go to the starting point and wait for your opponent. If you have a waypoint set, that will be the finish line. If not, the game will pick a random place ahead.

The latest version includes bets! You can now make bets with the challenged driver! Depending on the vehicle you have and theirs, they can bet high, low or not at all. The AI actually gains the money bet! This can be useful if you want to take it back. You can either challenge them again and betting higher (they will have more money so they will allow higher bets) or, you know, you can just kill him.

Visual C++
NativeUI 1.5

Put "ImpromptuRaces.dll" and "impromptu_races.ini inside the Grand Theft Auto V/Scripts folder.

To start a race, do a burnout / honk near a vehicle.

------ "BUGS" ------
No matter how many times you challenge a driver, he will have money, due to the script giving them more money if they don't have enough to bet again.

------ CHANGELOG ------

- Drastically improved Brake AI helper, the AI cars will now actually brake instead of magic stopping them.
- Improved AI Helpers in general, granting more general stability to the AI cars.

- Fixed incompatiblity with Drift On Demand.

- Changed max betting to 2.000$ Only Supercars allow for this, lower tier cars have the bet capped to something lower.
- Added various AI helpers to make the races more fair.
- Added a Nitro ability for the NPCs, with some tweaks to allow them use it inteligently.
They will only use nitro if you have Realistic Nitro or TurboSystemV installed (auto-detected).

    @MrVibrating Yea I own 3D Vision and Occulus Rift.....I play it in 1440p 3D which is beautiful the car mods look amazing especially interiors at night lit up speedos.

    As for VR have to use VorpX which isn't a good native experience.
    It looks like crap honestly
    Now VR in Assetto Corsa and Project Cars is amazing.

    When I do a burnout and press W+S, impromptu races starts. The flag icon appears and it sets a car to races with me. Can I make the toggle to be only the horn, E?

    Did you ever go back to vanilla handling for the AI???

    Did for a week or so - done what you suggested, added Killatomate's handling for the few cars i mostly use, to the vanilla handling meta.

    It's a good workaround, since OpenIV causes any and all entries the main handling.meta in mods/update.rpf to supercede any others anywhere - so you don't need to maintain separate handling.meta's for all the DLC vehicles, just paste your new entry into the main handling.meta and you can ignore the DLC files.. this is the technique Killatomate's using, so you only have to maintain the one single file.

    And it works a treat for Impromptu Races. I also installed the Community Races mod, deleted all the races that came with it and installed one called "the run", an epic 40-car race around the full map.. there's also a destruction derby race for the horse track that's good fun..

    So yeah, with vanilla handling for all the other cars, the AI make half-decent competitors. The "all peds / cars invincible" options in ENT help, too.

    Gone back to just using Killatomate's handling for now, though.. as getting into any car with R*'s Tonka physics is kind of a jarring immersion-breaker...

    If ENT can make all other cars except yours invincible, it's probably possible to set a flag that gives all AI cars super-traction, too. Then you could just toggle it on any time you want a challenge, and leave it off the rest of the time..

    Might make a request for this on the suggestions forum..

    Still having blast with this mod, I have no idea how you did this, but when I enable cops, sometimes they randomly chase either me or opponent, incredibly realistic and awesome!

    As a small request, I don't know if it's possible but can you make cars that we race against gain max performance upgrades automatically? I'm currently solving it by racing with vehicle one class lower than opponent (thus I lose pretty often, and that's cool), but would be better to race in the same category and be able to race with my max upgraded supercars at last =)

    @Forrest Gimp I could, yeah. It's old so I don't know when I'm going to come back to update it, though. Meanwhile, maybe could be of help finding good cars to race against.

    Actually I have tested it and it needs a quite few fixes yet, so I'll wait, but recently I have came across Southern San Andreas Exotic Traffic mod. By tweaking popgroups.ymt I'll be able to spawn more cars where I need them (like supercars on highway). For the time being, it will work out quite well I think.
    Anyway, thanks for suggestion and response.
