▸ About

Arivia is an F4 menu designed for RP-based gamemodes, including DarkRP, HogwartsRP, and StarwarsRP. It allows your players to switch between jobs that you provide on your server. As an F4-menu; this means that your players will use this to pick between your server's various jobs, buy entities, shipments, food, and more with a simple interface that lists everything as clean as possible.

This addon includes two versions which customers are able to choose between. Version 2.x is the original Arivia that has been used by so many over the last few years; which still continues to get updates, fixes, etc. However, version 3 is now available as well; which is a complete re-write of the addon, but packed with even more features, a more modern design, optimizations, and all the trimming you'll need for your players to enjoy.

Since Arivia is so feature-rich; view the Features page to get a full description of everything it includes.
