UPDATE LOG - 15/09/2017

[​IMG]

After lots of preparing and development, we have finally finished something we've been keeping a secret for a while now! You can now head down to the Hungriges Schwein Casino to play a game of Poker, rules of this type of poker follow Texas Hold'em.

Joining the table:
To join the table, press E on a chair.

Currently you can access the low stakes tables, in the near future higher stake tables will be added.
The lowest amount you can put in to start is $2000, and the maximum $60,000.

Your dealt cards & your chips.
You will be given two cards for the game, these will be your cards for the entire game. You can peak at these
cards throughout the game using left click. Don't worry when peaking though, other players can't see your
cards, only you can. Your chips will be on the right side of your cards throughout your time at the table, once you
run out of money, you will have to exit the table and put more money in.

Betting menu:
The betting menu gives you four options, you get a minute to choose an option based on the cards...

The couch and sofa props ingame can now finally be used to actually sit down:

And as a small bonus, we made the bed work too:

Additionally, all of the broken radio stations were swapped out for working ones, and we also got a few new ones:
  • 86.1 Eurobeat The Meat FM (@Tom Hill)
  • 90.2 Retrowave
  • 98.8 TeaTime FM
  • 105.7 I Love Radio

And adjusted a few things with the new courier job:
  • Courier is not getting paid by the city anymore, instead all of the NPC deliveries were made more frequent and pay out more money
  • The amount of NPC contracts now gets scaled by amount of couriers
  • Players do not require a car to join courier anymore
  • Players can not order food items when they have more than 20 food items already on them

New Courier System
The Courier system has been updated! You can now enjoy a re-worked system which features some cool new additions to how the old system worked, with also an addition of scripted contract jobs from stores and NPC’s across the city!

Head to the Delivery Warehouse to sign up for the job!
(Two Couriers can now be in service, rather than the one slot before)

[​IMG]

Wait for an order from another player, or an NPC.
The text message you receive will display the order value and where you’ll be delivering it to.
(You will receive 10% of the order value once delivered)


[​IMG]

Collect your package from inside the delivery warehouse
Your package will display the location and what type of client you are delivering to.
You can put up to four parcels inside the van at a time.

[​IMG]

Place the parcel inside the van!
Take the parcel to your delivery truck, and place it inside.

Bank robberies have received a complete overhaul in how they work and how much they will reward participants. You will need to speak with the drug dealer who can get you in contact with someone.
[​IMG]

After a brief period you will be texted by this person and told to wire their bank account $5000 to get the heist underway.
[​IMG]

Afterward, you’ll be requested to gather a crew who will need to text the number which contacted you with a certain code provided, this gets them in on the action. In a bit, you will make your first face-to-face contact and get the vault cracker from an associate of theirs as the leader.

Once you’ve assembled at the bank, place the vault cracker on the door and get ready to defend it, possibly with your life. Police will get alerted to this after some time and start coming for you.
[​IMG]

Unfortunately, the vault cracker is not flawless so it will be up to a member of the crew to reset it on occasion.

When the process is...

Today's update mainly fixes many bugs that were reported by you on the github issue tracker, such as
  • Fixed fall damage
  • Fixed undraggable ragdolls
  • Fixed windows being unbreakable after being shot out once
  • Ragdolls disappearing after respawning
  • and many more

The map app is now actually usable.

If you experience your values changing, then it's probably because you entered a color that is out of the allowed range (so that we don't get super bright pink cars blinding us).

There will be many more updates over the next few days/weeks, so stay tuned.

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!...
