Description
ARS its a racing tool that allows singleplayer racing against smart opponents in a modded enviroment. (More info)

-- Key Features --

Route-based tracks
ARS makes use of routes instead of waypoints to build its tracks. This has huge advantages - The tracks' limits are very well defined and curves are well detailed. AI benefits greatly from this as they tap into the route info to try and follow the track to the best of their abilities, meaning they don't need vanilla pathfinding anymore, and they're able to make full use of the track's width, encouraging multiple-car battles and overtaking behavior. Add-on lands are possible to race on thanks to this.

The track contains all the information the AI might need to navigate, and that's huge.

Modding support
ARS is built to support a wide range of game modifications out of the box. Specifically:
  • Add-on vehicles: All kinds of land based vehicles are supported. Add-on included, there's no difference between vanilla and Add-on ingame. In fact, ARS comes with a few IVPack and VWE vehicles added in.
  • Handling mods: ARS' AI taps into the car's Handling to judge the vehicle's capabilities, like tire grip and engine power, for example. This allows the racers to work with almost any kind of handling, from the arcadey vanilla to realistic builds like Killatomate's Realistic Driving.
  • New lands: It is possible to race in add-on lands of any kind. This is because the routes themselves provide the AI with everything they need to navigate, so there is no pathfinding needed at all.
  • Stunt tracks: Tracks can be built on GTAO's stunt props (any prop, really), thus allowing Cunning Stunts' style races to be done too.
  • Surfaces/Material mods: A few mods modify the ingame surfaces to have better physics, and this is specifically supported aswell. AI will account for the new grip modifiers.


Content Creation
ARS has an in-game route creator with prop placement support. It also allows players to create their own vehicle builds, tied to specific disciplines.
Both kinds of creations are stored in .xml format and can be easily shared between games!

You're free to upload vehicle or route files from ARS to 5mods and share them with everyone. If you contact me, I can add them to the script's content and make them official in an update.

Proper AI
The opponents feature a scratch-made AI specifically coded for this script. GTAV's AI is disabled for the races!
Among other things, AI is able to take any kind of corner, overtake each other, make full use of the track's width and respect personal spaces to a great degree. They are also context aware in a fair share of situations. For example, they know to give way or hold their ground regarding side-to-side battles, and can actively look for a gap to overtake.

Discipline system
Basically a glorified tagging system, it lets you define which kind of cars should show up to your races. The disciplines are custom and stored in each car's xml file.

ARS comes with a few basic disciplines like 'sponsor' for sponsored vehicles (livery) and 'drag' for dragsters. Cars' classes count as a discipline too, along their modelname and vehiclename.

REQUIREMENTS
.NET Framework 4.5.2
Visual C++ 2015
ScriptHookV Latest
ScriptHookVDotNet Latest

INSTALLATION
All the required files are stored within the ARS folder. Drop the folder itself on 'GTAV Root/Scripts/'. It will look like \Grand Theft Auto V\Scripts\ARS\(Content).

Ingame, you can simply hold Shift and press E, and the main menu will appear.

SETTINGS
You should open Options.ini and DevSettings.ini inside ARS's folder to configure the script to your liking. All the options in there are explained in the files.

THE INCOMPLETE PACKAGE
Sadly, you can notice this is not an 1.0 release. ARS is not complete and it is not the full experience. I have ran out of time and have not been able to complete this script before my deadline, and I have to move on. As of now, ARS is barebones and only the AI, editor and race behavior are there.

The reason for this is that scripting the route system and AI have been a titanic effort, and it has taken me more than a year to figure out and manage. So I am absolutely burned out and I have also spent the time I allocated for this project completely. Its releasing late, by the way. Should have been done by July.

ARS lacks:
- A complete set of vehicles to race against (Only a few dozen are included)
- Multi-race championships
- Any kind of progression
- Immersion focused features
- A proper interaction menu
- General polishment and intuitive design
- ARS' AI is also unable to handle ambient traffic for now, so traffic is fully disabled while you're racing. Hopefully, this becomes an option in the future.

I will attempt to work on ARS in the future and update it as I am able. It is not a certainty, though.
