Back in the days there used to be a good old Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas server running the cops and robbers gamemode. Some of it's features were: Businesses you could buy, personal cars which you could change and put modifications on, and in general a cops and robbers atmosphere, people would rob stores and cops would come flying into the store trying to arrest or if needed use force to get the robbers.
SA-MP used to be a really tight community which I were very fond of and enjoyed very much.
A few days ago I was reading up on some gaming news and found out some people had released custom software for GTA 5 online, GTANetwork. It only recently brought it's first release and it seems very promising. I created a basic server and such as came the following idea. The streets were empty, just like in the old SA-MP server. I instantly thought of Team NeO, I'll get to the point.
My idea is to recreate the old SA-MP server in GTANetwork. GTANetwork has proven to me to be stable enough to handle such gamemodes and shouldn't drive Anderson's finance into a wall as servers are fairly cheap to host. I have already started programming some of the fundamentals of the gamemode, easy selection of jobs and attributes and given weapons. But I can't test a gamemode that's in essence completely based on multiple players all by myself.
I really hope that I've made you enthusiastic for this new idea to recreate the SA-MP spirit in GTA V. If you would like to become one of the testers or help with development of the server you could always private message me or reply to this post.
Looking forward to a new era of GTA on Team NeO,
(A quick side note, cracked versions of GTA 5 will not work with GTANetwork)
