A New Senior Administrator

  • 2,641
  • 46

Hey everyone! Today is the day that I announce a new senior admin. It’s been awhile since we had one, yet I feel like another senior administrator is needed to help run the staff team. So I hope you can all congratulate @MrLewis on his new promotion. Lewis has been a dedicated staff member for over 2 years and has had a great impact on the staff team and will be a great addition to the senior administration team. I hope you can all give him a warm welcome!

Today we released an update that most of you probably haven't even noticed yet. We have fixed one of the main issues of our gamemode which caused many ARs and reports and often overwhelmed the staff team. I am of course talking about items disappearing after you leave the server.
As of today any dropped items and planted drugs will stay around for up to 5 minutes after a user disconnects. If you reconnect during that period those items will stay around and they will still be "yours".

So not a huge change log this time, but some useful things included. Enjoy!

  • If you have had issues with the "reliable buffer overflow" disconnect, it was likely due to you having too many drugs in your storage. While we strongly suggest you sell them before you have several thousand as it still could happen but we have tried to meter it out so you won't get this error as soon as you once did (even though this was already quite a large amount).
  • Rings are now shown on your hands in first person, so you can enjoy them more, rather than just being a sort of nonexistent thing. The positioning/angles on some are incorrect and we have other fingers that rings can be attached to that won't show in the store, but that will be fixed in time.
  • Zip ties can now be used to tie people up rather than "/me ties their hands" so by Rule 3.26, using this /me is now invalid and can not be used...

Poll will be closing 15/12/2016 at midnight - Cast your votes here!

As many of you are aware, for the past 2 years, a community outlaw that goes by the name AyJay hosted the PERPheads Community Awards where members of the community could vote for individuals for awards. I believe this is a great thing to do and gives us a chance to recognize people for their great work. I talked with AyJay and asked him if I could carry it on and he said it's fine.

So as someone thankfully pointed out early on in the day, I messed up with the Luger crafting mixture so they could be crafted from a single grip. We looked into it and only 7 total were made until I made it impossible to craft more. Instead of doing anything regarding refunds or removing these, because the number is so few we're just going to allow people to keep those. If desired, we will accept your fully crafted Luger and give you a Luger grip in return so you can ease any guilty conscience you may have today but it is not necessary.

Moving on, I also seem to have forgotten to include magazine mixtures, which is a bit of a mistake :phteven: but it happens. Also there were missing stocks for MP5K and SPAS-12... (this weapon system is a real mess trying to keep track of what parts have been done now because of how modular each gun is :confused:). Attachments should work for all the appropriate guns though, only thing being the MP5K (unlike its bigger brother the standard...

Well not much was changed other than some more guns being added this time. Maybe a fix here or there, but mostly new guns.

"What new guns?" I hear you ask.

First thing to note, Halloween will only remain for one more day.

As many of you are aware, joining the server when it is peak time it can be very difficult, if not impossible for hours. So we have made a way to join to the server in a proper order so you will actually have a chance to do so. This means when we enable it, there will be a queue server in which you will first need to connect to, in which it will automatically put you into a queue to join the main server. In the top right it will display your current position in the queue and how many others are waiting. You will be unable to join directly to the main server while this is in effect. Upon someone leaving on the main server it will prompt the first player in the queue if they wish to join, this option is only valid for 2 minutes. If you choose to not take the slot or miss your chance it will not currently put you into the end of the queue, so if you wish to requeue you will have to reconnect to the server...

PerpHeads HACKED???!

Updated 27/9

As many of you already know, several accounts were taken over and used maliciously on the 24th of September. We have a very clear idea as to who is responsible for this attack. I will not be giving out any names however.

One main thing to note is that our database was in no way compromised so all information you have both in game and here on the forums is completely safe. This attack was simply gaining access to a staff members account and then using it to edit others in order to gain control, modify information, or delete theirs or others accounts.

Here is the most complete overview that I can put together.

Starting around 9:10AM CEST the individual first gained access to a former Administrator who will remain nameless. However all permissions from this account had already been revoked so nothing of value was gained.

From there the individual gained access to @Xquality's...

Here's one of the updates you've all been looking for! FPS boost!

Overall your FPS should about double* it seems in most cases. You can access this by pressing F1 -> Options ->

*Depends on your own personal hardware and what else you may have running

Granted you could use this command before, but to anyone who used it already they quickly realized it had drawbacks. Originally it made clothing flicker like mad, but the GMod devs changed it some awhile back but it still turned everyone's clothing to pure white. This was still less than ideal for trying to track down someone specific. After much thought of how to do this properly, @Fredy and I have created a way which should allow all colors to remain. You will not lose any clothing or metals for your vehicle and can still customize to your heart's desire. We may even be able to add some more things that previously we were limited to doing, and no change...

Some of you may be aware that since release we have been using the Evolve Admin Mod since our initial release. While it has sufficed, it was less than ideal in a number of ways it operated both front end and back end. So we have created a whole new admin system which should hopefully allow our staff team to help effectively serve you if you have a valid report. We have titled this Super Cool Admin Mod, or SCAM for short, for the lulz.

What does this mean for you as a regular user? Other than using /report not a great deal; you may notice a few changes here and there otherwise but nothing game changing.

So here's the new stuff with /report...

In your F1 Key Bindings you have a new option to bind (default is F6) to open up the reports window which will show your past reports from your current session.

You can either create a report here by pressing the create button or typing in chat like normal...

Hopefully this update addresses some crashing people had while loading car dealer or any other car related window. This also eliminates the annoying audio while it loads all the car models.

  • Overall better looking GUI skin which makes EVERYTHING better (more colors potentially on the way) (can change in F1 menu)
  • Car Related windows (you can click and drag side to side to rotate the car around)
  • Night times hopefully not nearly as dark...

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.​

  • 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...
