This guide explains the scripted drugs in current SA-MP scripts.
Dealing drugs is an activity known to be an easy way to earn money because drugs can be resold to another player. Currently available scripted drugs are weed and heroin, using which provides a variety of graphical effects on the user's screen. Law wise, usage and possession of heroin is completely illegal, while weed can be gathered for private purposes (selling and using in public is still illegal).
There are a few steps a player needs to follow in order to obtain weed:
- Purchase seed(s). Seeds can be purchased at 24/7 stores for $50 (by using /buy seed when in one) or from other players. Note that, when purchasing in store, the script gives out only one seed per every $50.
- Find an available field. There's a number of fields available on the server (see map below) which players can use to grow weed on. If someone used a field, it will be locked from growing for next 15-25 minutes. A field is marked by a bunch of flowers standing in a group (picture on the right).
- Planting and harvesting. Growing Weed is something that couldn't get you arrested, therefor it's a legal act, yet smoking Weed in a public area can get you arrested. Once on a field, by using /growweed, a seed will be planted to grow the weed. It usually takes 3 minutes for the plant to grow, after which a plant object will appear. To harvest the weed, use the /harvestweed command.
Usually, one seed can bring between 9 and 20 grams of weed per growing (minimum 10 grams, and maximum 19 grams).
Gathering heroin is a bit different than gathering weed. That's how it's done:
- Find a heroin spot. Like weed, there is a few spots for gathering heroin scattered around the map (see map below).If someone used a field, it will be locked from ordering for next 20-30 minutes. Heroin spot can be distinguished as it contains a small white jar (picture on the right).
- Ordering and gathering. Unlike weed, using and ordering Heroin is an illegal act and can get you arrested, yet it earns more in the Drug Deals. By using a command /orderheroin on a field, a package containing it will be ordered; these packages cost $1,000 each and contain 25 grams of heroin. After the package has been delivered, a message about it arrival will appear and you will be able to gather it using /collectheroin.
