Summary0001266: Give the mod access to GUI functions
Description

I think adding GUI functions to the LUA scripting system would really raise the quality of the maps / game modes that people create.

It would also be useful for the mod as a whole, and hopefully it would mean that voice chat can be brought back, which may be useful for clans.

It was mentioned pre-R1 that R2 would feature this, but I haven't heard any more about it so I'm posting this as a reminder.

we need to make the GUI funcs accessible by the mod 1st, atm it can only be done in the core

I think that we should leave that for r2.x/r3

It might take a good while to incorporate it (I might be wrong though), we should focus on making r2 a quality release (like r1 was), and leave some features to be added later.

Ultimately it's up to the devs to see if it's practical or not.

I have no idea how long this would take or how much work it would be, but with the scripting system at the moment, you can only communicate with players via text, which makes it still like MTA:mA. GUI functions would offer a lot of flexibility to scripters and also help the mod itself (e.g. notification icons for voice chat).

Also remember that the race mod didn't have any competition, whereas the SA DM arena has 2 other big names. We need to differentiate MTA:SA as much as possible.

According to the Road Map it is, so I'll mark it as resolved.
