Official MTA Public Roadmap


Recommended Posts

Currently, you can find Milestones on GitHub that track the intended updates for the next MTA release, as well as other issues for future releases (backlog).https://github.com/multitheftauto/mtasa-blue/milestones

There are also several project boards on GitHub that track the progress of certain topics like Framerate fixes. https://github.com/multitheftauto/mtasa-blue/projects?type=classic

I feel like these methods of showing the goals for the platform are limited. The milestones are just plain lists of GitHub issues and pull requests, with no categorization other than basic labels (ie. enhancement or bug).

 

I believe that Multi Theft Auto should have a central development roadmap, like any major work-in-progress project, that lists the general goals for the platform and its services: we are talking not only about MTA:SA-Blue (the GTA:SA multiplayer mod), but also about its web services (like community.multitheftauto.com that should be modernized), and other plans. It is not a small project. It seems crucial that the objectives are organized in categories, and also sorted by priority that is according to the MTA Staff, Contributors and the community's general interest, as well as how everything spans across time.

Why not create a Wiki page, a forum thread or a dedicated web page for this purpose? MTA still has a lot of improvements to make, and this would be a step towards more transparency and coherence. Everyone would appreciate having easy access to such information on the development process & plans. I often see people criticize MTA Staff for their lack of communication on the development of the main MP mod.

PS. I know this Roadmap wiki page exists, but it pointed to a Roadmap on the old Bug Mantis, which essentially just became the GitHub milestones we have today. I believe something more detailed is necessary, like described above.

 

Opinions?

It's important to keep evolving instead of getting stuck in the past. can't keep it 2007 all the time. If we don't move forward or move too slowly, we risk losing people's interest.

". I often see people criticize MTA Staff for their lack of communication on the development of the main MP mod." i agree with this.

Let's not be extreme like that, MTA isn't exactly stuck in time, it has evolved a lot over the years, although slowly.

A roadmap of this nature would be beneficial for showcasing the project's big goals and give people an overview and better understanding of the necessary progress. I can't see any cons/downsides.

absolutely, hope they won't say no as they usually do since it's easy to just disagree lol
