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 special thanks to these people for making this update possible: @Yoghurt @Madda @LEWIS 088 @Fredy @SpaceShots

Map Rotation

Hey there,

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.

Rule Changes 14/10/2019

Hey,

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.

5.3 Raiding

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.

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:
    • FN SCAR-L
    • Colt M16A4
    • Famas G2
    • Enfield L85 A2...

Chemical Table Update Log - 22/02/2019


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.

Things that can be placed on the Chemical Table:
