[How-to] Have multiple scripts in one resource

So hello guys so I saw someone that asked about how to have multiple scripts in one script. It is really easy and I’m going to show you guys an example:

So first you need to make a loadout as you can see I have 3 scripts in my pack: Script1, Script2, Script3,

script1

When you have made that, then we can move to the fxmanifest

So here is the fxmanifest code

-- Script pack by godgutten

fx_version 'cerulean'
game { 'gta5' }

client_scripts {
    '/**/client.lua'
}

server_scripts {
    '/**/server.lua'
}

Doing it this way will allow all files with the names client.lua or server.lua to be started without having to list everyone individually. (Note: Only works if your client and server files have the same names)


I’m going to give a download for those of you who like to do it that way:

Download: ScriptPack.rar

If your client or server files aren’t the same you can use arrays to declare them in the fxmanifest

fx_version 'cerulean'
game { 'gta5' }

client_scripts {
     "'script1/client.lua",
      'script2/client.lua',
      'script3/server.lua'
}

server_scripts {
     'script1/server.lua',
     'script2/server.lua',
     'script3/server.lua'
}

Another way to do it is to declare each file seperately

-- Script pack by godgutten

fx_version 'cerulean'
game { 'gta5' }

-- Script 1 
client_script 'script1/client.lua'
server_script 'script1/server.lua'

-- Script 2
client_script 'script2/client.lua'
server_script 'script2/server.lua'

-- Script 3
client_script 'script3/client.lua'
server_script 'script3/server.lua'

Can this reduce resources?

You are looking for a way to restrict resources with car addons??

What do you mean?

I believe he was saying he wants to take all his Car mod files , and place them all into one directory such as [gtr, m3, m4] - all within /vehicleaddons/ rather than ensure gtr , ensure m3 , ensure m4.

you need merge meta file.

__resource.lua is no longer supported check out
https://docs.fivem.net/docs/scripting-reference/resource-manifest/resource-manifest/

and what happens with the various configs that you put?

In the manifesto, I propose this:

resource_manifest_version '77731fab-63ca-442c-a67b-abc70f28dfa5'

-- For multiple client scripts (adding on to the example above)
client_scripts {
     '/**/client.lua'
}

server_scripts {
     '/**/server.lua'
}

It will go through all folders and run client and server, you can give unlimited number of script folders
