  • One of the bigger map changes which was highly requested is the addition of the old V1 Office building, with a few changes such as a fire escape and a new exterior.

  • The Regals Apartment has a newly added fire escape, adding one more entrance/exit to the apartment complex.

  • Road textures have been updated to a fresh, clean and smooth look.

  • Slums apartments has recieved an extended car park, adding more spaces.

  • A creepy alleyway has been added behind the slums apartment, and also behind the
    fire department to add another exit to it.

  • The puffer mart now has a back door, adding one more door to the building.

  • The business shops now has a parking area to the left side of it, so you don't have
    to take the journey over the road to the bazaar parking.

  • The suburbs fences has recieved a new fence texture.

  • The farm hut, and a hick town trailer have been removed.

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!​

POLICE COMPLAINT CHANGES


Good afternoon guys, @TinySlayer, @Brinch and @Samuel have been working incredibly hard on moving the Police Complaints from the Forum & Google Drive and onto our PLPD Online platform, this is a brilliant transition and will really help the process of complaints and the case management.

Internal Affairs personnel area;

Previously, we have used the forums and Google Drive to handle complaints which is great, however it's extremely complex and is incredibly time consuming. Now, written complaints will go through www.plpd.online and you will need to sign in through Steam to create a complaint, this is so that you can interact with the assigned Internal Affairs investigator. Of course, if you don't want to sign in for whatever reason, you can approach a PD member and ask them to submit the complaint on your behalf, but keep in mind; this means that the investigator will not be able to contact you.

Once again, tremendous work from the Information Technology team! If you encounter any problems, please open a ticket on PLPD Online or contact @TinySlayer on the forums.

PARALAKE POLICE DEPARTMENT
POLICE WHITELIST

Can you believe its been over 2 years since the original idea of the Police Whitelist? In August 2014 we began working towards some sort of whitelist/rank system for the Police Department. I was tired of the Police Department being so 'throw away', everything you worked on just disappeared when you resigned from officer, I really wanted to change this and make things more permanent. I thought that the Police Department at the time had so much potential and so much could be made of it. In January 2015 we announced the Police Supervisor system which whitelisted the Lieutenant and the newly added Police Sergeant job, this was pretty much where the crusade for improving the Police Department started.

Since then, we've worked on the whitelist to where it is today, in April 2016, we added the Ranked Supervisor system which added the ranking system which required you to apply for Senior Officer. The past couple of years have been great and its been amazing seeing everything come together and the amount of individuals that have been so committed to making a change within the Police Department.

As I mentioned in the PLPD Christmas Post:
