Witness Crimes (Basic)

by YourGrace
Please explain why you're reporting this file:

Feb 11 update:

-renamed mod page as this version is a little different than the new version. I don't want to delete this one as it still allows crimes from vanilla gta to occur and not a complete rework of crimes like the new version. So if u want something more basic and works with vanilla wanted system, then try this version. I no longer support this version so any bugs will not be fixed and I recommend the new version which completely changes how a player becomes wanted.

Difference from new version is this one enables vanilla wanted system when any ped can see u and only prevents getting wanted when hidden. The new version enables vanilla wanted system only when cops see u. So the new version requires plugins to replace the job of the original crime detection when cops are not around so the newer version is more realistic but people may still want a version like this ;)

January 27 Update

-Added police response to scene of shooting. If you shoot too much while hidden police will respond to investigate. Now more realistic. Police wont know you were involved unless someone witnesses u shooting. A patrol car and any cops on foot nearby will respond. So you will need to move to a new area to avoid attention. If you are then spotted by a cop near the scene of shooting while armed, u will receive a wanted level. So best to leave the area.

-ini setting for how much shooting triggers a shots fired investigation

-F10 Key Now Toggles on and off the witness notification

-Added Ini setting for Key to Show or Hide the Witness Warning


WitnessCrime by YourGrace v1.0

This script changes how you receive your first star. Now a person needs to actually be able to see you when you are commiting a crime. This is perfect for snipers who want to use stealth while they hunt. As long as you are somewhere hidden then you don't have to worry about being reported to the police. You will know when you are being observed by an ! icon near the top right corner of the screen. So if you see that symbol, then the game will handle crimes as normal. When that symbol is hidden, you are prevented from receiving a wanted level.


-Make sure you have scripthookdotnet v1.7.1.7 beta installed
-Place the .net file into your scripts folder... load game

You think you can remove the exclamation point? It'd be more hitmany to actually have to make sure there's no witnesses nearby yourself. Maybe make it optional?

Hey man ive been waiting for this mod since release!!!!

U finally did it. 10/10

just one question can you set an option in the .ini or something to disable the text that pops up to show you how man shots you fired or in your other mod hiding form the police how many seconds have passed. some players might get annoyed of that text popping up.

Anyway awesome mod

Could you make GTA V Police AI? like when your are (whether on foot or vehicle) in front of them, the will honk their horn and if you didn't move away for 10 seconds, you will have a star.
