What is Keymapping?

Allows you to take a REGISTERED command, using the RegisterCommand native, and apply a key binding to it. So instead of having to type in the slash command in the chat, you can just press a single key and execute it. This does NOT work with QBCore.Commands.Add.


RegisterKeyMapping('togglelocks', 'Toggle Vehicle Locks', 'keyboard', 'L')

The purpose of this system is so that players can completely customize their experience on the server and not be subjected to hard-coded key binds.

How to change a bind
  • Open your pause menu in game

  • Navigate to settings

  • Select settings โ€”> keybinds

  • Select FiveM

  • Find the command you want to change the key for and select it.

  • Press the desired key youโ€™d like and thatโ€™s it

Weapon License

By default only a citizen ID and drivers license is redeemable from City Hall. For a player to get a weapons license he needs to see a police officer who will do /grantlicense [id] weapon for that player to be "granted" access in City Hall.

Police can also do /revoke [id] [licenseType] to revoke a players ability to purchase a hard copy of the specified license. Revoking the license will not remove the hard copy from the players' inventory if they have one, it will simply remove the ability for them to purchase a new one.

If you would like the players to be granted by default look for this set of code in qb-core/server/player.lua

PlayerData.metadata["licences"] = PlayerData.metadata["licences"] ~= nil and PlayerData.metadata["licences"] or {
    ["driver"] = true,
    ["business"] = false,
    ["weapon"] = false

and change ["weapon"] = false to ["weapon"] = true

Once a player has been granted a weapons license they will be able to purchase weapons from gun stores that have the requiresLicense variable set to true. To restrict weapon sales to individuals with a weapons license see the example config below from qb-shops/config.lua

[4] = {
    name = "weapon_pistol",
    price = 2500,
    amount = 5,
    info = {},
    type = "item",
    slot = 4,
    requiresLicense = true


Onesync-infinity should be enabled by default but if you ever need to enable it you would just put set onesync on in your server.cfg

Adapting Your Scripts

This is not an easy thing to describe because the code varies so you have to use your own judgement sometimes. With infinity enabled, there is what is called a "scope" and the client (player/you) has a "scope range". Now everything INSIDE this range the client will load via their machine but if something is OUTSIDE the scope then the client is not aware of it. Easiest example being if i am standing in the city and another player is standing in paleto, my machine has no idea that player is there at all. So if i had a teleport to player that was not setup for this then when i tried to go to them i would go to myself because i can not get the other players coords. Now the server DOES know that players coords so what we have to do as developers is gather that information from the server and send it to the client side. Also another big deal is obviously since we do not know about players outside of our scope, if we need a full list of players in the server then we need to get that info from the server as well.

Getting The Coords

This one is relatively simple, you can use the native GetEntityCoords on the server side and then pass that through an event or a callback. If you want more info on how to use this native then you can view that here

Getting the Players

To get a list of players on the server we must use either a native that is like this

for _, player in ipairs(GetActivePlayers()) do
local ped = GetPlayerPed(player)
-- do stuff

Using the QB function you can do it like this

for _, player in pairs(QBCore.Functions.GetPlayers()) do
local ped = GetPlayerPed(player)
-- do stuff

Spawning A Vehicle At A Distance

If you have a script that requires you to create a vehicle at a distance that is outside the infinity scope, you must use the code like below on the SERVER side

local SpawnPoints = {
vector4(-1327.479736328, -86.045326232910, 49.31, 52),
vector4(-2075.888183593, -233.73908996580, 21.10, 52),
vector4(-972.1781616210, -1530.9045410150, 4.890, 52),
vector4(798.18426513672, -1799.8173828125, 29.33, 52),
vector4(1247.0718994141, -344.65634155273, 69.08, 52),
QBCore.Functions.CreateCallback('qb-truckrobbery:server:spawntruck', function(source, cb)
local coords = SpawnPoints[math.random(#SpawnPoints)]
local CreateAutomobile = GetHashKey("CREATE_AUTOMOBILE")
local truck = Citizen.InvokeNative(CreateAutomobile, GetHashKey('stockade'), coords, coords.w, true, false)
while not DoesEntityExist(truck) do
if DoesEntityExist(truck) then
    local netId = NetworkGetNetworkIdFromEntity(truck)

This will spawn the entity and callback the entity id which you can then use on the client side to check if the entity exists. It will NOT exist until a client(player) gets within range of it! While a client is NOT in range, the server โ€œownsโ€ the entity. So whenever a client gets into infinity range it then takes ownership of that entity and can be used by them. I know this one is a bit confusing but thereโ€™s no good way to explain it.

Database Connection

txAdmin does this automatically already but if needed then in your server.cfg put this and fill it in with the correct information. For the database wrapper oxmysql


  • Download the latest build of oxmysql (not the source code).

  • Extract the contents of the archive to your resources folder.

  • Start the resource near the top of your resources in your server.cfg.

  • If you have a lot of streamed assets, load them first to prevent timing out the connection.


You can change the configuration settings by using convars inside your server.cfg. Reference the following for an idea of how to set your connection options. You must include one of the following lines, adjusted for your connection and database settings.

set mysql_connection_string "mysql://root:12345@localhost/es_extended?charset=utf8mb4"set mysql_connection_string "user=root;database=es_extended;password=12345;charset=utf8mb4"

Certain special characters are reserved or blocked and may cause issues when used in your password. For more optional settings (such as multiple statements) you can reference pool.d.ts and connection.d.ts.

You can also add the following convars if you require extra information when testing queries.

set mysql_slow_query_warning 150set mysql_debug true

Using the UIโ€‹

Before using the UI first you have to make sure you have the mysql_ui convar set to true:

set mysql_ui true

Also make sure that you have command ace permission access, then you should be able to use the mysql command in game to open up the UI and see your query data.


Setting up your server.cfg is really simple and is already completed upon a successful txAdmin recipe install! You can also find additional information on server configuration files here. In case of a manual install then here's a template to use

#   ____  ____   _____               
#  / __ \|  _ \ / ____|              
# | |  | | |_) | |     ___  _ __ ___
