What is SAES Features Showcase?
A list of features that SAES server offers to its players, explained to the detail in text and further elaborated with screenshots. Features may range from scripted events (SR, PBR, GBR, VIP, Turf, Racing, JB, etc.) to mere individual job descriptions and instructions on how to perform them, or what abilities/commands each spawn comes with.
We're currently using the archaic F1 menu to offer explanations and information. While it surely serves its purpose, it is often very bland, confusing or simply not showing enough details. It is also impossible to add images to F1 which can often enhance a player's understanding of a function. When a new player joins the server and cluelessly asks what he can do here, he is almost always sent to read F1 which is hardly interesting or motivating, or can hope to find some of tutorials scattered all over the forums. Having access to a detailed list of what you're able to do on this server, well detailed and backed up by images, is more likely to catch interest than a bland bulk of text in F1.
Considering the amount of features that need to be covered, help is largely appreciated. Every feature will require a text of its own written either from scratch or built upon from F1 text base. Information should be listed in correct order of actions (you don't explain how to crack a bank safe before ever explaining how to get past the lobby) and needs to cover everything from first to last detail. Personal advices are not encouraged, the point is to explain how things work by default.
Each "tutorial" should be simple, easy to read and not too long while still covering all the information. If you're willing to give it a go and try to write an explanation, join this https://discord.gg/wmjvZU8. If you need additional information, feel free to contact me directly. Eventually all contributed texts will be looked over and polished to fit the general tutorial theme just so that one tutorial doesn't get more love than the other. Details from multiple contributors might be combined into a single more solid explanation, individuality of authors does not matter.
Afterwards through use of adequate images and banners; the entire guide will be made clearer and more representative. Although you're not required to submit images of your own and the focus is entirely on text part, if you believe that you should include them in your work this early anyway, for whichever reason, then go ahead!
Additionally, each contribution deemed helpful will be rewarded upon the completion of features showcase.
List of features that need a written explanation:
- Dust Arena
- Motocross Arena
- Mod Shop
- Car Shop
- Stores (general)
- Criminals (general)
- Police (general)
- Gangs (general)
- Squads (general)
- Groups (general)
Some features might be explained in as few as a couple of lines while others may require more. You're not expected to submit a fully polished, finished version. Contribute however you can, texts will ultimately be combined and edited. Eventually once finished, the entire topic(s) will be set in a more appropriate and accessible forum area. If you need a starting point for writing, check out the current descriptions in F1.
