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

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:

The City Council members will be elected by the community to ensure a fair independent body can be created. Find below the proposed...

Official Construction Booklet Poll

  • 3,897
  • 24

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!​

PARALAKE POLICE DEPARTMENT
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...​

Police Whitelist

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...

After a lot of spoiling in the shoutbox I am pleased to announce that the new overhauled phone app is now complete and you can check it out on the server.
The most notable gameplay change is that instead of being able to get anyone's phone number by adding them as a buddy, you now have to manually add each contact from the contacts tab.
The only exception to this is if you are mutual buddies with someone. In that case they appear in your contacts automatically.

Full list of changes:
  • Completely reworked phone app giving it an updated look
  • Phone app is now split into three tabs: Dialer, Call history, Contacts
  • Contacts are now seperate from your buddies
  • Adding someone as buddy no longer reveals their phone number
  • You can now give every contact a different avatar (Right click on contact to edit)
  • The call history shows you the 20 most recent calls you made
  • The messenger app uses the same avatars as the phone contacts now
  • Updated the call app...

Hello everyone, as many of you are aware the server over the past few days has experienced malfunctions, errors, and crashes very frequently. We recently purchased a new server with the latest components available, however something appears to have not worked properly, it is unknown if this was a hardware or software fault.
We have moved back to our old server and for the moment it seems to be behaving properly and has stopped crashing.

Because of issues over the weekend and start of the week we are giving everyone that had active premium 1 additional week for free.

PERPHeads Community Survey & Open Discussion

Hi guys, hope everyone's well. Before we get into some serious boring stuff, I'd like to thank everyone again for participating in the community awards, it was a great outcome and it was amazing to get everyone involved!


So, I resigned from Senior Administrator on the 4th of September 2015 which is crazy as I've never ever played on a Garry's Mod community as a regular user, everywhere I've joined I've pursued to get staff, so playing a whole year as a user has been a different experience for me. Although I've left the staff team, I'm still incredibly interested in affairs within the community. I think...

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.
