Chaos Mod V
Feel free to join the Discord Server for announcements about this mod (and a better chance for support).
Chaos Mod V is an attempt to mimic the Chaos mods found on SA and VC.
Basically, every 30 seconds the game will trigger a random effect. This effect can be anything from giving you an RPG to exploding all nearby vehicles or making every nearby ped dance.
There are one-time and timed effects. One timed effects will run only once when the effect is started, while timed effects will run for 90 seconds (by default) after they've been started.
This makes gameplay significantly more surprising, as literally anything could happen every time an effect starts. Right now the mod features around 320 unique effects.
The mod also comes with a simple configuration tool. You can do anything from changing how often an effect should start to toggling individual effects and changing all kind of settings individually for any effect.
Also this mod is open source and licensed with GPLv3. Feel free to do whatever you want with it as long as it doesn't violate the license in any way.
