(GTFO) Grid Drive Videos from 2022-04-16

Today the post by me (not sure, if all works well) ...

... editing the pictures and creating a video takes usual a bit longer,
than the streaming and maybe fixing some issues with the sound
(or better: music and copyright-complaints).

Here now the different videos, so far we was knowing about.
If you have knowledge about others, give Pyo, Kimberly or me a "poke".



I hope you all was enjoy the drive ...
... and we looking forward to the next one.


PS:
Was someone on the "Bellisseria - Anniversary Race" on Saturday?
I totally have missed that ...

PPS:
You also can find all videos, I was able to catch since July 2021, here:

How To Become A GTFO HUB Provider?

Get the Freight Out! - GTFO!

A logistics and exploration game in the virtual world of Second Life™

How to become a hub provider?

We get asked about this a lot.

The GTFO! website now has a page dedicated to becoming a hub provider.

Most GTFO! hubs are owned by players of the game. If you have a space station, airport, marina, petrol/gas station or other location with access to protected road, rail or waterway (or air/space), you could host your own hub.

If you want to find out more, please visit https://sl-gtfo.com/how-to-become-a-hub-provider.html

Thanks for your support!

Configuring Visible Cargo with GTFO!

GTFO Logo

Configuring Visible Cargo


If the vehicle is modifiable and tolerates changed links (ie, it won't explode if you add a box or two) you can add as many containers as the vehicle is raided for, and name them CARGO!x from 1 to how many the vehicle will hold. If you add more, extra containers may remain visible in the unloading process.

So, CARGO!1, CARGO!2, etc.

Depending on the load/unload time, items will be visible/vanish at blocks.

e.g. Containervessel Andrea Doria, all above of 12 container are visible/vanish at once.

Some vehicles needs a special procedure for unlinking/linking. Please consult the creators manual!

Since HUD 1.9.0 the cargo part got separated from the HUD main script.

To operate visible cargo, take your vehicle to edit and drop the !GTFO!CARGO V.1.9.0a into the content.

To configure, how the cargo appear, edit the VAPI-notecard content accordingly.

qty(cargo quantity) times secs(number of seconds to load each item) qty x sec can not exceed 115 seconds else last cargo will not show loading

sample: qty=6

secs=6

These figures will not replace actual carrying capacity of your vehicle only the loading/unloading of it.

Advanced Multi-Face, Compressible Cargo 


THIS WILL MOVE THINGS AROUND, SO MAKE BACKUPS

If you are an advanced scripter, you can set the following in the block's descriptions:

[ Prefix ] [ Number Of Containers In Prim ] [ Prim Size ] [ Prim Local Position ]

"CGO,0,<1,1,1>,<0,0,5>"

CGO - Prefix the API looks for, it wants to see this when it's scanning the link-set.

Faces - 0 or 1 = Single Container

If you have multi-element cargo prims, set up to 8 faces.

Prim Size - The vector size the prim will be expanded to when made visible

Prim Local Pos - the LOCAL position it will move the cargo to.

How To Set Up Your Vehicle for GTFO!

gtfo logo
GTFO Logo

Setting Up The Vehicle ID (VAPI code)

    
    GTFO! identifies your vehicle by a specially named notecard in the vehicles content.
    
  1. Create a new notecard.
  2. Rename the notecard "GTFO!xxxx" where xxxx is the 'VAPI Code' for your vehicle
  3. Example: "GTFO!SUPERCUB" if you have Laminar Cub
  4. Enter some "space" to the notecard content
  5. Save the NC. By this NC, you can now also configure how many pieces of cargo that show and the time between each piece.
  6.  This figures does not change the actual job cargo or replace the actual carrying capacity of any vehicle.
  7.  More in "Configure visible cargo", below
    
    VAPI (API code) https://sl-gtfo.com/vehicle-creators/ 
    

Installing The Vehicle Scripts

  1. Rez your Vehicle
  2. Edit the Vehicle's contents
  3. Insert the named NC "GTFO!xxxx" into contents.
  4. Insert the GTFO! API script included in this package
  5. The API script will now tell you if it found the api block or it will present an error.
  6. To find your GTFO prepared vehicle in inventory, add e.g. GTFO to the end of the vehicles name. Some vehicle, like Shergood heli's, need parts of the name unchanged, to have all features work. Consult your manual.
  7. Take it back to inventory, then rez it again.

Using GTFO!


You don't need to be in a GTFO! Hub Region. 
Presently, those are on mainland continents, Fruit Islands/North Sea.
Click the GTFO Hud and there will be a button labeled 'Find Hubs'.
If you're in a mainland continent, you will see hubs in your proximity.
    
  1. Visit a GTFO Hub Region
  2. Rez a Vehicle you have prepared for GTFO
  3. Sit in your Vehicle and wait for GTFO to tell you it is connected.
  4. Click the HUD.
  5. Select 'Get Cargo'
  6. You will see some options depending on your vehicle.
    "Courier Job" - Deliver goods from here to another hub.
    " Freight Job" - Deliver goods from here to another hub.
    "Air Drop" - The same as above but to non-hub 'mission regions'.
    You can not load freight at such locations and is not available for all vehicles.

After updates you may see some new jobs types,
these are pretty much the same thing but with different margins

  1. Pick a job, then select a destination from the menu.
  2. Look through the cargo options for the highest value or funniest name,  you pick.
  3. For the initial launch the cargo names may really random.
  4. You may start of with insufficient funds if your vehicle is too large, you may need a smaller vehicle until you can earn more money.
  5. Click 'Load' and then 'Confirm'.
  6. Wait for the HUD to tell you the job is loaded and you are ready to depart.
  7. You can move the vehicle if necessary for traffic, but do not leave the sim as this will cancel the job.
  8. Travel to destination in the allowed time.
  9. Click HUD then 'deliver'.
  10. Wait for cargo to unload.
  11. Collect fake game money.
  12. Repeat.
As you progress, you'll gain levels, as you level up you'll get better margins and more profitable cargos.

Freebie Version Limitation

The Freebie Edition has access to all vehicles and destinations, but...

  • Freebie HUDs will not level up past Level 5
  • They will not gain xp or money bonuses from extra distances traveled
  • They will not gain perks or unlocked items
  • They will not be able to participate in leader boards
            
However, XP and money gained with the freebie edition carry over into the paid versions! 
            
If something does not work as it should, de- and re- attach the hud solve most problems.
If you find anything suspect or is obviously a bug, please let us know.
Fastest help you will find in our in-world group secondlife:///app/group/0de2c89b-6213-91e0-c0a5-6936fd1201e6/about
