Rule Amendments 14/07/2016
Hey guys, I know it's not been long since we had one of these but there are some minor amendments that have been made and I thought I'd just let you all know the changes that have happened. The forum rules page has also been updated and is now functional. Thank you to @Murtsley, @Bean Can, @Chris and @Chrissy for the suggestions.​

Server Rules
  • 1.3 Slander - Minor correction, 'Ban Requests' replaced with 'Action Requests'
  • 3.18 Storages and Trunks - It is now against the rules to detach weapon attachments when your life is in immediate danger with the sole intention of preserving them from loss. For example if you are being shot at and are going to die and you detach your stock so you don't lose it, you will face punishment. However you may still switch out attachments when you're life is in immediate danger if you can prove that your intentions weren't to avoid their loss. For example if you're switching out sights and you die halfway through you will most likely not be punished.
  • 3.23 Placing Drugs - It is now not against the rules to transport drugs in the back of a van or pickup truck. (This means that you can put drugs in them solely for transporting, not for permanent growth)
  • 4.2 SWAT Officers - Reworded to allow SWAT to conduct simple exercises within the PD that does not involve live ammunition.
  • 5.2 Forced Withdrawals - Corrected a clash with the Penal Code, officers are now exempt from this rule (the storage aspect) provided they are operating within the law.
Forum Rules
  • 2.3 Unnecessary Posting - Further clarification of what is considered unnecessary.

As I'm sure almost everyone is aware by now, the weapon update is now live. Yes, there were some bugs and stuff, but for how massive this update was and all the things that could go wrong, I would personally say it went actually very well. Some things reported to me are a bit mysterious still, but I'm sure in due time they will make sense. Anyways I'm not going to try to list everything that was fixed, changed, added, etc with this, but here's a partial rundown.

New guns/weapons! Lots redone regarding weapons to help make them feel smoother and act more like how they should so it doesn't feel so laggish and awful.
  • AK-74U
  • AK-101
  • AS50
  • AUG A3
  • Double Barrel Shotgun
  • (craftable) G36C
  • Glock 17
  • Glock 18C
  • L85A2
  • L115A3
  • Mk 2 grenade
  • P99
  • P226
  • PM
  • PPK
  • SCAR-L
  • UMP45
  • USP40
  • Mini-Uzi
Attachments!
  • Aimpoint
  • EOTech
  • Compact EOTech
  • Microdot
  • Reflex sights for pistol and rifle
  • Red dot
  • ACOG
  • 4 different magnfication scopes
  • Suppressors for all calibers but a couple
  • Optional stocks for better recoil management
Police skins!
  • All police vehicles have new skins
  • Police SUV for sergeants+
  • Police uniform changed to have badges according to their rank (still some bugs to work out)
Monorail App
New police jail dialog that allows you to enter a reason
Enhanced dispatcher map

We included a number of other fixes and requested suggestions, to be honest I can't remember them all but they're there. As noticed there are several levels of purity for refined metal now, this was done in part to create a way for people to decide between having quick access to a material for a high price or save some money and refine it themselves. This also allows gun stores to be a bit more competitive with each other and can price the same item differently by a fair margin.

Firearms levels used to be gained by...

As our three year anniversary is coming up we decided to have a blast from the past and create a PerpHeads server that runs the code/map we had 3 years ago.



The version of the gamemode is from September 2013 which means that it shouldn't have too many game breaking bugs. To make the start a bit easier, everyone will start with $100,000, premium and all skills maxed out. The server will use the rules and laws from back then too; although rules may not be strictly enforced as this server is meant for fun. The duration that this server will be open is undetermined. Nothing from this server translates to the main server.

PerpHeads has certainly come a long way and I hope you'll be able to tell how much the gamemode changed since then.

To join the server connect to this IP perpheads.com:27017

If you are getting any texture issues make sure you:
  • deleted your addons/perpheads folder (you're gonna have to redownload the content for the update anyways)
  • unsubscribed from any perpheads workshop collection
  • have downloads enabled

If you want to be helper on the server please ask for it in this thread and you might get it.
Please note, banned players are not banned on the legacy server
Ok so first off let me say, thank you all for being patient about letting this update take its time. It has been an adventure for all of us trying to get it to work in every way: from first person models, to third person models, to items dropped, to inventory displays. Source Engine wasn't fully set up with this kind of thing in mind. But here at PH we tend to get around some of the limits that otherwise stop us from being unique.

We plan to release all of this ideally on PerpHead's 3rd year anniversary!!! For those of you who do not know when that is it is the 5th of July. Additional events and stuff may be scheduled for the same day in order to commemorate the day.

This update includes a number of other features as well that have been worked on in conjunction with weapons. So hopefully everything goes as planned and with as few errors as possible.

Here's where some "bad" news happens though. As you may be aware some items currently crafted either are or contain parts of the gun which will be optional after this update. So this requires new components to craft. We have decided that all components upon release will be deleted. Be sure you use up all the ones you have or they will be removed and no cash value given. I regret having to do it this way but it is by far the easiest and best solution. Although I imagine most people that are crafting guns will have already made most parts into the weapons they intended them to become.

We are working frantically to be sure everything is set up and all other fixes are balanced and ready to go. I know this announcement may be a bit delayed but there have been a number of RL set backs for me recently. Either way, if you have any questions that I can answer for you at this time feel free to ask (keep it reasonable).
Server Events: 19/06/16 - Sunday 4PM GMT +1

Forum Rules Amendments 16/06/2016

Hey guys, small thread but I thought it was needed so that a small amendment to the Forum Rules could be brought to your attention. Basically it's been an increasing issue that people are replying to threads in the above section without actually providing a constructive and useful opinion, it is also often the case where individuals are commenting without even being fully aware of the situation. To help eliminate this issue the Forum Rules will be changed as following:

However, if you do have an opinion or concern you would like to post you are more than welcome to bring it to the attention of a staff member. As we do understand some users may desire to voice opinions even though they weren't involved in the situation. We made this decision in order to avoid cluttering threads to make it easier for Admins to evaluate situations.

Rule 2.6 will also be amended to remove the sentence 'with no chance of appeal'.

Please note that for the time being these updates won't be live on the 'Forum Rules' tab at the top of the site, however they can be viewed here and will be actively enforced.

PARALAKE POLICE DEPARTMENT
ORGANISATIONAL CHART


Over the past couple of days I have been working on an organisation chart for the Paralake Police Department, a couple of months ago we introduced the Police Command Teams however there were still discrepancies and they still weren't able to run without the help of the Chief Officers. With the new organisation of the PD, all areas of the Department are covered so that divisions can work without having to be reliant on the Chiefs of Department, that way we are able to work on ideas for advancing the Police Department. In this thread it will show the new organisational chart and information about each division.

In the next couple of days, I will be updating the 'About the Police Department' thread to update the organisation of the Police Department to include all the new divisions formed and who is heading them.

[​IMG] ORGANISATIONAL CHART
[​IMG]

Essentially, the Police Department has been split up into three categories; Support Services, Operations Services and Internal Affairs, in future, more divisions can be added inside of these categories. Each 'category' is headed by a Captain which oversee the work of each division and make sure everything is running smoothly. In some divisions they will also have a few lieutenant helping them in their work.

A more detailed post with each division can be found here: https://perpheads.com/threads/about-the-police-department.15228/#post-110042

SUPPORT SERVICES:

Will home the divisions which aid the Police Department administratively, such as; Police Academy, Administration Services and Public Relations.

POLICE ACADEMY:

Works on the recruitment and training of Senior Officers. The Police...​
