[Release] Nearest Postal Script

Nearest Postal

This is the nearest postal script, it shows your nearest postal below the PLD display and will also show you the distance from it. This can also draw a route from your location to a postal of your choice.

Installation

  1. There are 2 ways to install it, and I recommend the first
    1. Run the following command in a terminal
      • git clone https://github.com/blockba5her/nearest-postal.git
    2. Download the code from the GitHub releases
  2. As of now, this script supports 3 postal maps. From what I have seen, these are the most popular
  3. To setup the postal map, open the __resource.lua file and change the variable postalFile to one of the files above
    • NOTE: This defaults as the new-postals.json file

Command

To draw a route to a certain postal, type /postal [postalName] and to remove just type /postal

It will automatically remove the route when within 100m of the destination

I love this script and its function. Awesome work!!!


For those of us who use the server side pld (note this is not the scripthook pld) use these cords in the pld scrip to raise it high enough so the postal script can be seen

in the config.lua change the default x & y to this:
x = 1.050
y = 0.975

and if your a ocd person like myself and want the postal to be aligned with the pld, use this in the pld script:
in the cl.lua change the default text to this:
DrawText(0.225, 0.963)

Should look like the below photo if done correctly.

(Update fixed problem so I am removing this report.)

I do not believe this is a problem with the script… Try restarting your game or deleting caches.xml

Upon running the /postal command, it errors in the console.
“Error running call reference function for resource postals: citizen:/scripting/lua/scheduler.lua403: cl.lua:89: attempt to index a nil value (field ‘format’)”
Any help?
