Remember when I was working on that open source project called Open Source Roleplay. This is also known as O:RP. An Open Source Roleplay Framework for alt:V that was an initial attempt at getting other's and myself familiarized with the intricacies of the API built for alt:V.

That project had many flaws and issues that slowly cropped up overtime and I made sure to take mental notes of all the things that went wrong with it. I even attempted to push the server further and kept building on top of a foundationally broken game mode.

I can safely say that the few successful servers using O:RP have mostly patched foundational issues. Anyway, let's talk about what alt:V Athena actually is.

Athena will go further...

It's a fully customizable pay to access framework for alt:V. It does the heavy lifting for you so you can focus on the little things.

It provides a simple Discord Authorization that only requires you to open port 7790 for your server. After opening the port and authorizing through Discord it greets you with a Character Selection Screen or a Character Creation Screen depending on how many character(s) you have.

It comes with a permission based command system that lets server owners define what Permission Level can run what commands in-game.

Note the toggleable Voice Server built into alt:V

It even has a few built in Admin commands to assist with your world building and server management. NoClip is great to fly around in.

We also automatically synchronized the time and weather. As well as creating a simple weather pattern simulator that carefully waves itself over the GTA:V map.

Building a Better Framework

The goal of this framework is to seek funding from those of you who are passionate about running your own server and providing a stable and easy to use framework that can be expanded.

It may take a while to build out some of the core features for a Roleplay framework. However, after they are complete anything additional will be add-ons.
