Is it possible to call an URL from the script ?? I tried lot of things but nothing look like to work.

Is it possible to call URL or SQL databases from LUA script ?

yes, but the url must start with


an examlpe:

local link = "mods.php?lang=en&title=fs2019&filter=org&org_id=65115&page=0#";
openWebFile(link, "");

Arg yeah i saw this function but i want to call another website :D and it don't have to open web browser , is it possible ?

No - the FS lua engine works in a 'sandbox' (for safety).
General system I/O operations are disabled.

Aw yep i saw this, because if IO is enable i could call an URL with a shortcut-file read :D or even execute the explorers from cmd with io ("start"). It will not be possible to run libraries too ? Like i wanted to create a custom DLL who could be encrypted for a mod to call databases , this will not be possible ? :( using loadLibrary function.

No, all of it is not possible. Otherwise you could crazy weird things outside the scope of FS.
