As you may of have noticed, @MrLewis has sadly resigned from his role as Senior Administrator. We'd like to thank him for his hard work and time he has given toward the staff team and the community during his time.
As a result, I've been attempting to decide who would be the right fit for the role, and have come to the conclusion that two Senior Administrators would be beneficial to pushing the staff team forward. This way we can handle refund requests, general community work & staff-related matters more effectively.
I hope you'll join me in congratulating @TinySlayer and @ayjay ツ to their new roles, and give them both a warm welcome to the Senior Administration team.
Today we have a slightly bigger update for you that mainly focuses on changing crafting drastically and adding smoke detectors. Here's the full changelog:
Reworked crafting to not be as interactive anymore and generally much easier to use
You don't have to click on individual components to add them to the mixture anymore
Added a nice overview of the mixture that lists all skills required to craft it from scratch and additionally any raw ingredients you are missing to fully craft this item (any intermediate items you already have are taken into account as well)
You can now craft an entire item even though you don't have all immediate ingredients, as long as you have enough ingredients to craft any intermediate...
After some time without any updates (mostly because of me being extremely busy) we now have a semi-heavy update for you. While most of the changes are relatively small I think they will improve the experience of everyone a lot.
Fixed legs not being shown when you look down
You can now choose to whisper in voice chat - limiting the range you can be heard from - by changing the mode using a key configurable in the F1 Menu (default G)
When a car is moving at a dangerous speed you now have to double press E to exit the car
There is now a call button in the messenger app
Removed the fee from doing bank transfers on the phone and upped the max transferable amount to $100,000
Fish prices are now 5 times as high, making fishing more profitable
Handing yourself in at the PD when having a warrant will now correctly...
EVENT: Glass Co Parker Raid
Two teams, one in parker and one in Glass Co. The idea? Try to kill each other as quickly as possible with all the weapons provided for you.
PRIZE: Winners will receive 50K each.
EVENT: Zombie Apocalypse
The suburbs district will be quarinted off, your job? Go in there and eliminate as many of the infected as possible, ammo supply areas will be dotted around the district. Let's just say this sounds easier than its going to be.
Prize: Winning team survivors receive '$25.000' each
Description: Two teams, one defending and one attacking first team to win two rounds wins
EVENT: Mike Myers
Prize: Last person alive receives '$75.000'
Description: Mike Myers is located in the forest or business. One player will be armed with a knife and will have unlimited stamina. The rest of the players have to run, hide and hope for the best
Description: The third event will be chosen by the community, any good suggestions for events will be added to the poll
Just another update that is mainly meant to improve the mechanics and feel of the server.
Melee weapons now use a much better method for detecting whether or not you hit someone. Previously you could only ever hit someone with any melee weapon if you directly looked at them while clicking. Now there's a lot of room for you to hit someone as long as the person you are trying to hit is in the range of the swing of your weapon.
This will also affect fists, as well as their functions such as dragging/pushing, which means it should be much easier pushing someone trying to run away, or dragging someone who is constantly moving.
Since this change will severely improve melee weapons and as a result they might currently be overpowered, so if that is the case we will change the balancing soon.
We also finally added the katana that Xquality made ages ago but never added because we didn't know how to...
As you can see it is now extremely easy for the senior administration to setup events, and they should be very robust now too. This means we can now have events a lot more often than before.
Furthermore the new system is easy to extend, which means we can add quite a few fun events by writing only a few lines of code. So you'll probably see some new small but cool events soon.
2. The SWAT Van is now destructible
This has been requested for a very long time and finally it has been implemented. While the SWAT van is still significantly stronger than a regular car, it can probably be taken down by an org if they have...
Today the staff team had a full meeting to discuss matters the community wanted dealing with, aswell as other's we felt had to be changed. Below they'll be listed, we hope you're happy with the changes, of course if you have any concerns or queries let us know, have a good day everyone.
Construction booklet has been removed for the time being, it will stay in the F1 menu however user's are free to ignore this entirely.
2.5 has been reworded and slightly changed, take a look.
3.8 has been adjusted.
3.10 has had the booklet reference removed.
4.8 has been edited, take a look.
Bans - Any user who has been banned longer than a period of 6 months, who hasn't been toxic, cheated, ddos'd or negatively impacted the server in a large way, has been unbanned. We realised that a lot of staff were simply placing users on a permanent ban for simply jumping off...

EVENT: Suburbs Team Deathmatch
Prize: The surviving participants on the winning team receive '$50,000' each
Description: Suburbs Deathmatch is located at the Suburban District believe it or not, there are 2 teams and everyone is given a Primary and a Secondary weapon, along with some miscellaneous items, like a bandage or two. The two teams are placed on separate sides of the Suburbs and when they are signaled to go, they will begin...
Hi everyone, earlier on today the staff team brought up all their concerns regarding rules and changes have been made. These rules are now added and in full effect so be sure to check them out to gain a full understanding of them. If you have any concerns then contact either me or bolli and we will review them as soon as possible!
Rule 3.3 - Realistic actions - Furthermore, players should take great care whilst climbing. Players should not attempt to boost people onto buildings or structures, nor should they climb onto objects which realistically would not hold their weight.<Addition
Rule 3.20 - Disconnecting from the server - Players should also wait at least 10 minutes prior to leaving the server after committing a crime; this does not apply if the crime has been resolved (player has been arrested / caught for this crime). <Addition...
As everyone should be able to see we upgraded our forum software to XenForo 2 today. XenForo 2 was released more than half a year ago and since now most of our critical addons have been ported over to the new software, we decided to upgrade the forums too.
The forums use the same style as before, but unfortunately there is no dark theme available for it yet, which means anyone who liked those themes has to wait a little longer. However, the blue theme is already available, so feel free to use that one if you so desire.
Unfortunately there has not been any commenting addon, and it does not appear that anyone is working on one at the moment, so waiting any longer before upgrading would not have made any sense. The comments still exist (just not visibly so) and once we find an addon, or write one ourselves (@Samuel, @ayjay ツ ) comments will be gone.
Teamspeak 3 integration is not available for XenForo 2 yet but will be ported over very...
Hi everyone! It's been a long time coming but finally the server events are making a return! As normal we will be hosting three events, all of which we hope you will enjoy. The first two have been selected, however we have given you all a choice for the third just go ahead and cast your vote via the poll created (poll will close on the 10th). We hope to see you all there, have a great week!
Katana Battle - Starting at 2PM GMT+0
Cooper Race - Starting at 3PM GMT+0
Yet to be established, time should be around 5-6PM
Katana Battle - Basically like bat battle but with the all new Katana!
Cooper Race - Ever wondered what a mini cooper would be like with the engine of a Bugatti Veyron? Yeah, us to.
Sourcebans is finally gone and it's been replaced with SCAMBans (Super Cool Admin Mod).
Since Sourcebans has stopped updating we decided to make our own so we could add more features in the future such as blacklist, rank editing etc. The layout on mobile is currently a bit buggy and the theme will be updated soon
If you come across any issues or have suggestions please open a bug report or PM me or @Fredy
