After an excruciating week of setting up our first map change (as voted for in the poll), we are finally done!
The first map in the pool is Evocity, we hope you enjoy a little nostalgia! Please note that there may be some issues/bugs with the current map, we are aware of these and we'll be working hard to push out fixes over the next few days.
We hope you enjoy this little update, we also have a number of other great updates in the works which will be released soon!
A recent suggestion was made not too long ago by @Dom_, where he suggests a map rotation. We have decided to give this a go, to try and give some variety to the game. The purpose of this post is to give you a chance to vote on which map should be the first one, and how often they should switch around.
This is currently being worked on by @Bolli, so hopefully it should be ready in the near future.
There has been some minor updates to the following rules: 3.4, 3.18 and 5.3.
3.4 Putting your Life at Risk
A few examples has been added to the rule, to hopefully help clarify it a bit more.
3.18 Storages and trunks
The rule now specifies that this also includes government officials, this has always been enforced but this should help clarify it.
While their life is in immediate danger a player must not use their storage boxes/trunks to avoid losing valuable items that the player is currently holding on their person, this is also including the confiscation of firearms or illegal items whilst on duty as an LEO. This also includes detaching weapon attachments with the intention of avoiding their loss.
Civilians can now return to raids where they died, as long as it is the same raid/RP sit.
Civilians are not allowed to raid, or assist others who...

A new update just went live, with a very long list of changes! All of this has been possible due to the hard work by @Carrot, @Fredy, @Bolli and myself. This is also the first update that @Ayjay has helped to write some of the code for.
Firstly, we have added Vehicle Registration Plates:
Here are some of the features of the new plates:
All cars get given a random plate when you purchase them
Most job cars have their own distinctive plate, including the badge number for the PLPD
Custom plates can be purchased at the City Hall front desk
Vehicles no longer display the owners name on the HUD
The police computer can search for vehicle owner by the car registration plate

An update went live this morning, here are the changes!
After the first phase of weapon balancing, I have gone through every pairing of firearms to make sure there is always at least reason to choose one gun over another. Previously there were several weapons that were worse or equal to another in every variable, but costed more. This is no longer the case. The following changes are to make this happen:
Reduced the recoil of the Spas-12
The MP7 Grip now requires 3x25% Refined Metal and1xChunk of Polymer
Fixed bug in the crafting mixtures of the following magazines: HK45, MP7, MP9, MP5K
The HK45 now requires an additional piece of metal
The Luger now requires 1x25% Refined Metal instead of 1x50% Refined Metal
In varying amounts, reduced the recoil of the following firearms:
This is an update that @StephenPuffs and @Fredy have been working on for a while, although few gameplay elements were changed, a very intricate day/night cycle has been introduced. A few other things are included in this update.
What we've done:
Realistic day/night cycle (longer days during summer, longer nights during winter)
Visible moon with phases.
Solar system model
Emote wheel with selectable acts
All car sounds have been levelled due to being too loud (thanks to @Bolli, if there are any missing or broken sounds submit a bug request or contact @Bolli)
Lighting has been improved generally
Weather effects have temporarily been removed (will be included in future update)
Following on from yesterdays update, a smaller update went live this morning. The focus of this update was to provide a first phase of balancing to firearms, while we have feedback from the small group that helped test the changes, there will be a further phase of updates after monitoring the impact of the changes for a period of time. Please continue to provide any further feedback in the community discussion thread.
Added new settings for gungames
The spread of shotgun pellets is no long impacted by marksmanship level
Marksmanship for lower levels no longer has as much recoil
Crouching has a more of an impact at higher marksmanship levels
Changed the recoil reduction calculation so that...
A lack of discussion between the staff team and the community has been apparent for a long time now, it's important that we get your input on the prevalent issues
and concerns that you all have so we can work toward fixing these. This thread will be an opportunity for Senior Administration to respond to your questions and queries.
I hope this thread can generate some positive discussion, and won't turn into a massive bitch-fest. We really want to see what you guys want, so I do ask that you remain
respectful and dignified when posting here.
For housekeeping sake, can we try keep the topic of this thread around these main issues:
06/04/2019 - SERVER EVENTS These events will take place on Saturday.
Short notice, but due to the servers high population of recent we thought we'd give you some events this weekend.

As some of you have already noticed, an update went live on the server early this morning. This update has mainly been focused on revamping some PLPD features, along with a few minor tweaks here and there. I'm also happy to say that our very own @Bolli has started to develop some of the code and has fixed several bugs in this update.
Here is a brief summary of what has changed:
Revamped the Police Armory
Added Light TFU Gear
Added a weapon locker to the shooting range

Added ability for all officers to remove warrants or remarks that they issued

After a few days of hard work, we're happy to announce that 10 new cars will be added to the game. This selection is the remaining few from TDM, consisting of a range of less sporty cars. We hope this gives you a couple more options when it comes to buying a new cars. There has also been a few changes to the events.
Beach Derby has been tweaked, parts of the platform will be highlighted then fall throughout the course of the game.
After many months of hard work from the entire development team, we are pleased to announce that the Chemical Table update has been released. This is has been one of the more complex updates, stretching some of the limits of what is possible with the engine, with complex and dynamic models that can be added to and adjusted on the fly.
Chemical Table Overview
Chemical Tables can be placed in most properties on the map, but there are specific locations inside the properties that they can be placed. Simply equip your chemical table in a property that you have keys for, and you'll be able to see where it can be placed. Each property has a limit of how many chemical tables can be placed there.
After a week of voting, the community awards this year has come to a close. I'd like to personally thank everyone for taking part for the past five years, and I hope you can join us next year for a bigger and better community awards.
