Hey everyone!

Recently senior administration witnessed a post created by @Slayerduck, the post essentially detailed that the community were incredibly confused on NLR and disconnecting. Because of this I decided to attempt to organize a small gathering with as many staff members as possible in order to attempt to create an addition that would solve this problem that we all had. During this meeting we all discussed the rule, how some of us enforced it, and then voted toward a new addition (the new implementation being the most voted).

However after the change was added and implemented we still seen discouragement by not only users, but staff as well. It is because of this, that senior administration has decided to open a google form that everyone can respond to, here you will voice your opinion regarding the rule and then from that we will implement a new re-written or edited rule.

Please remember to try and be as constructive and as detailed as possible when filling out this form, as wasted and unhelpful responses don't solve anything. Again I want to formally apologize for the issues that everyone has faced, and I hope within the next few days we have a rule that the community can be satisfied with.

Best regards,

Senior administration.

PARALAKE NEWS
After a few months of planning, designing and developing. Paralake News is now here! We're really excited to announce that the first edition of the newspaper is now out and can be purchased in-game at any Gas Station. The concept for Paralake News was made a while back, we wanted to give you guys the ability to view player-made news, covering a bunch of different topics from in and out of the game.

The Hub
The initial idea was to have just a Newspaper, however after realising that not all stories would make it in the weekly newspaper, we decided that we'd create 'the hub' in order to create an online utility to view all news created by our Journalists. You can also view OOC news here, such as update posts and talks with the staff team, where as the in-game newspaper includes only IC news.

Weekly Newspaper

Each Sunday, a Newspaper will be released into the public domain which will include the best and most eye-catching stories of the week. We also understand that a week is sometimes a while to wait, and we didn't want to make the Newspaper useless after reading all the articles so we added the ability to view taxes, city funds and the current mayor of the city. Keep your newspaper handy to have instant access to these stats!
Get involved
We're always looking for fresh faces to write new articles, so if you think you have what it takes to join the team then go here and write up an application to become a Journalist!...

Defences and Constructions Handbook
Suggestions & Discussions

With the recent implementation of the Defences and Constructions Booklet, we try to keep it updated at all times. However, before we decided to push out the Booklet, we asked for your feedback on what we could improve on the booklet itself. We received a lot of feedback, but also a lot of requests to have certain defences added, changed or even removed. We used that to improve the handbook the way it is right now.

We are not planning on stopping it there. We still rely on the Community to come forward with suggestions, and for you to discuss these suggestions with the Staff Team.

Before we get to the fun stuff, please read the following part carefully. I'd like this thread to be as tidy as possible, thus being said the Forum Rules are to be followed at all times (like you supposed to anyways) with zero tolerance for any violations. Users are to be constructive with their comments/replies, and any type toxic behavior will be punished accordingly. Suggestions for the entire handbook to be removed will be ignored.
What are you proposing to add, edit or remove a current defence ?:

What Section would it fall under (see handbook) ?

What are you suggesting:

Why should it be considered:

We are open to suggestions, and are looking forward to your replies....

Hey everyone!​
So as previously announced me and @Bolli decided to post a poll asking the community if they'd favour a guide as to whats allowed and what isn't allowed in terms of defences within the gamemode. After leaving it for 24 hours the community voted for the booklet. As such me and @Sgt.James cleaned it up, and now it's finally ready for release. Couple of pointers below for those who want a little more information:
  • To access the booklet, simply hover over the "Rules" hot bar and it will appear, simply click on it and there it all is.
    [​IMG]
  • There may be a few loopholes here and there, if that's the case simply contact me or @Sgt.James and we will go ahead and remove or add content dependant on what we need to change.
  • Information within the booklet covers and explains the following: All bases and possible amount of barricades allowed in each one, Player movement and overall realistic prop placement.

We hope you all enjoy this change, remember this is for you all, therefore if there's any issues in the slightest please do let us know. Anyways we hope you all enjoy this and use it to it's full potential, bare in mind an official rule will be put in place to make sure everyone is following this booklet.

Thanks guys!

Yesterday @MrLewis somehow managed to delete the whole News and Announcements section and all of the posts inside. The forums were rolled back to Thursday 9:00PM, all of the posts made after that are sadly gone and need to be remade. Sorry for the inconvenience, blame @MrLewis and he is very sorry.

PARALAKE CITY COUNCIL
INTRODUCTION

Since the formation of the modern Police Department, I have been thoroughly interested in creating some sort of governing body for the city that can operate independently from the Police Department. At the moment, the Police Department is in-charge of the laws, which I disagree with, I think it's important we have an independent body to make legislative decisions, the City Council will be responsible for the city law making and changes. Additionally, the Police Department will be answerable to the City Council which means matters of public interest will be challenged by the council.

ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE:[​IMG]
The City Council members will be elected by the community to ensure a fair independent body can be created. Find below the proposed organisational structure;

Chairman: @Skudist
Vice Chairman: @TinySlayer
Councillor: @Chrissy
Councillor: @Feng Yamaguchi
Councillor: @Rogue Matiz Tyres
Councillor: @Col. Collier
Councillor: @Testa Lagusa

Hey everyone! Some of you may know (most of you may not) that the Staff Team has been working on an official construction Handbook. The Handbook contains every base and specifically defines which defences are permitted and how many concrete barricades are allowed within each base.

Now obviously the handbook is already finished, however considering the recent concern regarding 'strictness' of the rules we wanted to see if you guys wanted it. Below I'll add a Poll, please vote honestly and if after the weekend users want it we'll go ahead and implement it.

Below I'll show an example of one of the pages, bare in mind with each base the amount of barricades and permitted defences tend to change.

Thanks Everyone!​
