Before continuing, it's expected that you've installed the plugin and understand the core concepts of Sonoran Radio.
When you install the script, your users can use and configure the keybinds or commands to open your radio interface and interact with the physical buttons on the outside of the radio.
You can click on the dial on the top right of the radio to toggle the radio on and off. You will also see this reflected in the teamspeak interface.
To move the radio on your screen to a more suitable position, you can click the
Config button with the radio open, then click
The color of the bar next to your current frequency indicates the state of your radio.
Status Color: Gray
If you are disconnected from TeamSpeak the indicator will be gray.
Status Color: Blue
If you are connected to TeamSpeak, the indicator will be blue.
Status Color: Green
If you have configured the sonrad correctly and you are logged into the CAD system, the radio status indicator will be green.
When your status indicator is green, your radio panic button will activate your panic through CAD, and you will be able to view basic call information by clicking on the Call Details button.
To change your current frequency, either use the dial on the top of the radio, use the keybinds that you set in the Keybinds Menu, or click on the change frequency icon. In the change frequency menu, you can either set a custom frequency or you can select a preset. You can click on either side of the knob on the top of the radio to go to the previous or next preset.
You can click on either side of the preset selection knob to cycle through preset frequencies. Cycling through next and previous frequencies can also be done via keybind. To set the keybinds, navigate to your game keybinds and set prev and next.
The button that resembles a house is a new button that you can click to automatically change to the first preset frequency. In future releases this button may be configured on an individual or server-wide basis. For now, the home button will change you to the first preset on your list.
To add frequency to scan list, set your radio to that the frequency you would like to add, click on scan list, and press the plus button. Press the x button next to a frequency to remove from the scan list.
Usage of the Sonoran CAD integrations requires the sonrad plugin for the Sonoran CAD. You can download and install that plugin here.
Or, learn more about the Sonoran CAD radio plugin here.
To activate your panic from your radio, you can use the button on the top of your radio. This button can also be pressed by a keybind that you can set in your FiveM Keybinds.
If you have configured your Sonoran CAD sonrad plugin correctly, and you are attached to a call, you can click on the "Call Details" button to review the details of the call that you are attached to.
Our custom in-game towers allow you to dynamically place repeaters around the map, customize the signal range, and more!
Learn more about tower configuration!
Tower locations are controlled by the server owner, and they may not always disclose the location of their towers. Look out for signal towers that look like the above and have the Sonoran Radio logo on the top dish!
If enabled, towers are able to be destroyed by anyone in server with weapons. By shooting the four dishes half-way up the tower, you are able to disable them one-by-one. As more dishes get destroyed, the more the tower's performance is impacted.
Once a tower is either partially or completely destroyed, anyone is able to locate and repair that tower. To repair, go near the ladder and cable at the bottom of the tower, and a popup will show telling you to press
G to repair.
If you set the configuration option
Config.enforceRadioItem = true the radio will only operate if the player has the "Radio" item in their QBCore inventory. When you enable this option, you will need to disable the
qb-radio script as the two scripts will conflict. When the player has the radio item, they can use the
/radio command or "Use" the item from the inventory by dragging it to the "Use" button or double clicking on it. When the radio item is in the hotbar of the inventory, you can also use the hotkey to open the radio.
You can bring up the Sonoran Radio HUD using the command
/radiohud [size]. Currently supported sizes are
medium. You can use the command
/radiohud off to disable the radio HUD. More sizing and movement of the radio UI will be coming soon, however please feel free to try it out and report any problems that you encounter.
