Area of Patrol (AOP) Installation

  • Install the base resource like any other resource. Otherwise known as the drag and drop method.

  • Open the config.lua file and change the settings to your liking. See the Variable Documentation to see what these are and do.

  • If you have usingPerms set to true (usingPerms = true) you will need to set up a method for permissions and a way to authenticate users when they perform actions to interact with Fax-AOP. You have an option to either use the hexadecimal method or Discord ID method.

Steam Hexadecimal Method: Simply copy and paste the below into your server.cfg and replace the HEX_ID_HERE with your steam hexadecimal. If you're unsure on how yo get your hexadecimal see How to get your Steam hexadecimal.

add_ace Fax.AOP faxes.aopcmds allow
add_principal identifier.steam:ID_HERE Fax.AOP

Discord ID Method: Make sure you have installed discordroles and have it working correctly. Once you have done this put a role ID into the discordRoleNames config value. Once this is done set usingDiscordPerms to true to enable. See the installation guide for this.

All done!
