    Real Car Names

    New Suggestion/Idea



    What does it affect?
    Tick all that apply
    [X] MTA:RP Gameplay
    [ ] User Interface
    [ ] MTA:RP Forums
    [ ] UCP
    [ ] Only MTA:RP Staff (Administration Tools)
    [ ] Other _______________

    Please provide a brief summary of your Suggestion/Idea
    > Yes I know it's been suggested before... but it's still a huge want from a huge chunk of the MTA RP (not MTA:RP) community as a whole. Vehicle enthusiasts love realistic vehicle customization it's about time we add it so we're able to compete with other RP communities. The more in-depth customization can come later, but this would be a good start.

    Advantages/Benefits
    > Attract vehicle enthusiast roleplayers to MTA:RP.
    > Brings some realism to the community.

    Disadvantages
    If any
    > None.

    Does it require scripting?
    Tick one
    [ ] No.
    [ ] Yes, I have the script.
    [X] Yes, but it still needs to be scripted.

    How would you go about implementing this suggestion?
    > Implement.

    Impact the suggestion would have if implemented
    > Could bring new & old roleplayers to MTA:RP.

    Additional information:
    > None.

    You don't have to pay loyalties to vehicle manufactures... if that were the case vehicle mods for GTA would be illegal lol... If you were an actual developer like Take Three / Rockstar for example you would have to pay royalties.

    You couldn't legally distribute these more for profit, or you would have to pay royalties. There MIGHT be a law suite depending on how much mtarp makes if they have real car names

    I honestly doubt vehicle manufacturers would file a law suite against a tiny community that uses their creations just for fun.

    Re: Real Car Names

    For as far as I know, donations are considered revenue, and does not belong in the 'profit' area.

    And in a response to Luka, i don't think there's enough money to make for those car-companies when they sue us. The costs of an attorney would probably make them just let it slip.

    The difference though is we're just using vehicle names via a string of text to describe the vehicle... We're not using actual vehicle models with logos via modding. So I'd strongly believe we'd be far in the clear when it comes to being sued by a vehicle manufacturer. Not to mention it'd be a huge waste of time to sue MTA:RP... the amount they'd have to pay for a team of lawyers would surpass any amount of money they'd receive from a law suit with MTA:RP lol. It's not illegal to create mods for GTA, it's only illegal to sell them because reverse engineering is against ToS of Rockstar/Take Three.
