    Hi everyone! It is really important to everyone at Spectrum that we are clear and transparent with our community on everything. One of the things we want to be open and honest with you about is our financial standing as a community. Spectrum is run voluntarily, not for profit and solely off of donations from members of our community. Our target is set at £160 a month and we’d like to share with you how we came to that figure; MONTHLY BREAKDOWN: Dedicated Machine - £125.00 Web Server - £15.00 Google Drive Backups - £8.60 FiveM Patreon (custom clothing etc) - £45.00 Teamspeak & Other Licenses - £80.00 TOTAL - £273.60 / $347.34 If we are fortunate enough to reach our goal early, then whatever more is raised will go towards the next month and so on. If prices increase for any of these we will announce this and how it affects the total. These funds will NEVER benefit an individual, once a donation is received it is the community’s fund to keep Spectrum going. If you chose to donate and help us towards our goal, please know it is truly appreciated and we thank you! ❤️

    v3.1.9 Reduced shouting range to half of original Fixed some customs not allowing you to access/change VAT and gain profits Reduced vehicle ped density to half of what it was before to reduce build ups/explosions Fixed U menu ID's not working after more than 32 people joining server Removed robbable player houses temporarily
  3. Jack


    v3.1.8 Updated ban system to fix issue where some bans would not go through administration logs Reduced total payout for the Legion robbable bank Re-implemented player-ran car dealerships (currently still in early testing) Updated user identifier methods and saving (backend) Patched glitch where users were able to return to the bank after leaving the area to receive a payout Whisper range has now been updated from 7m to 4m (You will have to be a lot closer to hear people who are whispering now) Fixed crashing bug with select admin commands and vehicle spawns
  4. Jack


    v3.1.7 Fixed duplication bug linked to inventory and robbery system Now made it so that upon dropping items you will automatically do a message using /me Medkits have been nerfed to now only work 50% of the time, this is designed to make you use the emergency services more often. The bug which allowed you to loot player bodies once they had been knocked down has now been fixed. You must keep the hostage/subject alive if you wish to rob from them. Introduced a BETA version of a new whitelisted job ("Fire Department"). This will act along side the Medical Services route and has a few interesting additions that are being tested between select members for now. Disabled NPC firetrucks and response to fires. Added in new clothing options for EMS and Fire Department Changed the notepad system to now ensure they depend on items, you will be able to use a notepad to write in them and then drop and give them to other players as if they were any other item. New anti-cheat detection implemented to help staff catch some of the people causing issues during negative "raids" over the past few weeks. You are now able to use /taxi to call an NPC taxi to your location, you are then able to set a point on the map and the driver will take you straight there! This is currently a free system however we will be implementing a price before merge through to the main server.

    v3.1.6 Fixed and re-added in the bank robbery system. Rather than it being a 30 minute cool-down per bank there will now be a 60 minute global cooldown. This gives the PD chance to organise and deal with previous situations before being bombarded with more. House Robberies have been added to the server, now if there is one or more Police officer(s) online and you have a lockpick in your inventory you will be able to break into anyone's house. There is a 50% chance this will set off an alarm and alert the PD. Weed seed item has been fixed and is now usable instead of having to use /plant Launderette location changed and blip for rep has been fixed. Removed the ability to steal someone else's driver's licenses for the time being until an additional obtaining source is added.
  6. Jack


    v3.1.5 New Drug System Implementation - We reset our drug system this now includes 4 primary drugs, Cocaine, Weed, Meth and Heroin. These have been reverted to a new faction controlled system which takes into account supply and demand factors of the server. The server list presence has been updated for cops to show "Off-Duty" or "On-Duty", this is to suit our new low police rules which can be seen on our server rules listing. Fixed vehicle storage caps. (Sorry but you cant store 1,000,000 under your Sanchez seat anymore!) Police has received a rework in vehicle access to allow people to have access to new and older cars We have added a bank robbery system. This is an alternative robbery system to the cash registry one, these will take longer but the payout will be greater. The purchased motel system has been removed, motels will now be free and accessible to everyone. Storage has been removed from these due to them being free. If you wish to store items you must now use your vehicle trunk, buy a house or storage boxes. Legion has received a make-over to add options for hotdogs, other beverages and entertainment of all sorts.. Re-added the briefcase, these can be obtained through in game contacts, it gives you a whole new level of trendy. Player Robbery duplication glitch has been patched. Removal of YMAPs that were causing bad frame drops around the Mirror Park and Highway areas Match boxes have been fixed and can now be turned into matches. Public Meth was removed to fit in with the new faction controlled drugs. Added blips in for owned houses. When you log in you will be able to see your owned homes (they will show up as pale green houses on the maps) Added replacement images in for some of the inventory icons Illegal blackmarket weapons have been updated in price Time trials has been added, so you can earn your $60,000 prize for setting the fastest times. Progress on weapon selection system has started. The moonshine system has been removed (because we forgot it even existed still) Something that buzzes when people want your attention may or may not of began its first stages of reworks?

    Its been a while since we have been posting these dev blogs, (a few months for that matter) this dev blog will be the longer one to highlight some of the main changes and updates that the server has undergone over the past few months. v3.1.0 Inventory Update - We have totally redone our inventory to now work off a more slick visual, drag and drop system. This can be accessed using the ` key (tilda) Weapon Update - Weapons are now classed individually and recorded into the police database depending on the way that you have obtained them. This means that if your gun is stolen then it can be tracked back to your name if checked. Item META Update - Items are now individually classed upon a similar system to the weapon classification. ID's belong to specific people and if they are stolen then it runs depending on the original owner. New MDT System - All of the police records and fining system has been moved from Discord over to a dedicated system which can be accessed by using /mdt Added notification in chat when the police presences turns to low. Please read the rules if you are unsure what the meaning of this is for. Added more animations (including Gang Signs) into the F7 Menu Edited the garage system to allow people to reset their cars for a price Updated storage box, vehicle inventory and home inventory UI to work with new inventory. Update job prices and access points to work with new inventory Updated Drug Prices Introduction of new Jewellery Heist. Added in Police Evidence lockups (Individual to the person) Update to HUD to remove clutter, you can now see your cash balance using /cash or /dm for dirty money. Updated Police Clothing, vests and female model options Added additional motels and currently in the works of redesigning the system to allow infinite motels to be available depending on the amount of people connected to the server. Added sounds to doors when opening and closing them. Added sounds to handcuffs when being arrested. Patched a major give money bug which allowed negative figures to be given to people to gain money from them. Added in systems which allows money from the police MDT and public jobs to be duplicated into private shared bank accounts that roleplay leaders/employers can use for bonuses and operations within roleplay. Readded the extended interior to Mission Row Police Station Added Mugshot Circle into MRPD Reintroduced gun licenses, these can be bought from the court house and you will need one of these if you want to buy a firearm legally from a store. Added CPR Animations for EMS revive/job. Added in icons across map for new clubs, jobs and the comedy club (split sides) Readded EMS operation suite. Fixed Trash Cans from not working with new UI Readded the office system in to allow players to purchase offices. If you want a custom interior for your office then please contact a developer as these have to be applied manually at this time. Added a limit to the price that fuel can be set at to avoid the people who think its funny to set gas at a price of $23,000 a gallon. Dates will now automatically be applied to Drivers Licenses and Gun Licenses, post purchase to keep everything to one universal format. Updated the Logging, Fishing and Burgershot jobs to work with the new Inventory UI Disabled the ability to roll vehicles back over after they have been flipped. You will have to use another vehicle or someone else will have to nudge you back onto your 4 wheels. Disabled the ability to control a vehicle in air (excluding bikes) Major changes to the Vortex handing file to reduce its overpowernesssssssss. Added the ability to re-buy mobile phones at the Life Invader building. Fix applied to prevent NPC's from standing still after selling drugs to them. Readded the Meth system - This works the same as before with stealing/buying the materials and then mixing them together to turn it into a sell-able substance. Updated the holster animations for police. Added in new Time Trials these will be displayed on the discord and the person with the fastest time will receive an in game, monetary reward every week. Please note that this activity is technically illegal and you can be fined/arrested for reckless driving. Re-added Housing, you will be able to buy houses across the map. These will not be based off a rent system but instead a one time purchase system. We may implement upkeep payments eventually, however if you become inactive then upon request a house may be taken away from you to give to someone else who is active. Housing storage system updated, the houses now include a basic storage box which is individual to each house. We will be adding the ability to craft items in housing in the next dev blog. Added new vests and patches for new factions accepted. Work has begun on the business requests/applications that were accepted. Sorry for the lack of posts showing these new features, it may not look like it - but we are still doing a lot of work behind the scenes! If you have any issues with the updates or find a bug then please let us know on our discord!
  8. This application area is directed towards people that are interested in using a custom skin/ped model for their roleplay character. Before applying there are a few things that you should know before considering this. Player models are individual to a server, we try to make it so that no two people have the same model. If a user becomes inactive and another application is put through requesting this old model the staff team will take this into consideration before replying and finalising the model on a submitted application. Player models do limit factors of clothing customisation, this is purely just a factor that we have not managed to work around yet. You can expect this to happen with the majority of models however there are a few exeptions. EMS or Police peds are only given out in special situations (usually for events) this is due to the small amount currently avalible. It must also be noted that certain animations may also not function correctly, however most of these will work as normal. Before applying please look back through the history in this thread. We will only hide/remove applications that are not accepted or the player/character has been killed off and has become avalible again. If someone has already had the PED you are looking for approved please do not apply for it prior to talking to one of the Administrators. If you are happy with the following drawbacks then feel free to continue on with the application. Format (Please copy and paste below this line and include it in your thread): Character Name: Character Background (Where your character originated from, etc) : Breif Explaination on how the Skin would benefit your roleplay: Name and ID of Skin (You can find this via the site hyperlinked) :

    This has been changed. We are running 2 servers, whitelisted and public. Both running similar server setup/features. Both having very different economy styles.
  10. Jack


    There has been a lot of confusion about what is going to be happening with this update so this thread is the latest, up-to-date form of what will be happening come 6PM BST on 12/04/2019. Combined Patch Notes: The issue where you were unable to respawn after the death timer has now been patched correctly You can now use /carry to carry another player on your shoulder when they have their hands up. /carryped can be used to carry a NPC/citizen The issue with people timing out and being kicked for "Error [2]" has now been patched New cuffing animations and sounds have been added in for when Police make arrests More foods (Hotdogs, Sandwiches, etc) have been added into Burgershot The issue where the pawn shop didn't recognise any inventory items has now been resolved. Crafting has now been added The weed system has been updated to use seeds. These can be purchased from 2 NPC's that change their location around the map periodically. This is only a maximum of 2 seeds per restart - server wide for moderation purposes. The black market dealer has now been released into the world ... somewhere. Issue where crafting recipes didn't show up sometimes has now been fixed (this was an issue with negative rep not triggering the correct events) Added Phones to all stores ($1000 on public, $800 on whitelist) Individuals can now use /bed in pillbox to be placed on the bed for EMS When there is more than 1 police officer online you are now able to rob civilians by pointing any weapon at them. They will put their hands up and eventually give you the contents of their pockets (in dirty money). Please be aware there is a 50% chance that this will put a call through to the police. Whitelisted Server: Whitelist applications have been closed for the time being to allow @Tara to catch up on the backlog and give other staff members time to re-review some other individuals which we no longer feel are suitable for the server. Continued updates from Combined. Public Server: A complete wipe commences. Memory, economic and character wipe will be put through at 6PM BST today. This update comes with the newer version of the Spectrum v3 framework and includes the features that have been recently listed to whitelist. Public server has will now receive constant updates/similar updates to the whitelisted server, just as a separate entity. This may sometimes mean that there is a time delay between when both servers receive and have updates implemented but this should never be more than 24 hours. Economy Re-balanced. Numbers have been readmitted to be inflated compared to the whitelist server, to create more abstract opportunity and to allow players to choose in what kind of environment they wish to play. For Clarification: Both public and whitelisted servers will be online and functional. Public will receive a full wipe, whitelisted will remain as it has been for the past few weeks. (No changes apart from patch notes) Public server will still run off the "Apply to gain" system in regards to businesses and factions. Anyone that has applied for a business or a faction in the past will need to REAPPLY come sixth restart. Both servers although developed separate have been updated in a way that makes it easier for developers to share updates across both versions of the framework more fluidly than previously. The whitelisted server will still go off a harder more realistic economy, no changes will be made to that as of now This post will be continued to be updated by myself over the next 24 hours to answer any questions that are asked via our discord. If you have any concerns please let us know.
  11. Hello! Thank You for showing interest in joining our whitelisted roleplay server. This is going to be a new addition to the Spectrum Roleplay network and we are looking to create a closed net, roleplay server that holds high standards for its roleplay. Something that sometimes we can simply not get out of a public server. To be able to qualify for a whitelist on this server you must have the following requirements: Have played on a roleplay server in the past and know generalised terms and know what your doing. Be able to create advanced characters with extended storylines that can be built upon over time. Must be over the age of 16 years old (you should be this for the public server anyway) Read through all of our rules and agree to them: https://goo.gl/ZgBmHd Must fully complete the application at the bottom of this thread and post it here Some of the perks for joining the whitelisted server over the public one: The server is closed off to people that are just on to cause trouble! Generally higher level of roleplay and ability to do advanced situations with better and more up to date scripts A great place for streaming due to the closed connection, it is a lot harder for you to be stream sniped (Many of our staff use this server to stream on currently) Totally separate server! We keep the Public and the private server totally separate, this means that the economy on the whitelisted server will be different as well as prices etc. The whitelisted server is more up-to-date with the latest and greatest things! We usually run new scripts and ideas through the whitelisted server before posting them to the public. This way you guys can get your opinions in early! AFTER YOU HAVE SUBMITTED YOUR WHITELIST YOU WILL BE REQUESTED TO JOIN A WHITELIST WAITING ROOM WHERE YOU WILL BE GIVEN A VERBAL "INTERVIEW" TO CONFIRM YOUR WHITELIST. YOU WILL RECEIVE ACCESS TO THIS CHANNEL AFTER YOUR APPLICATION HAS BEEN PASSED THROUGH THE FIRST STAGE (APPLICATION ACCEPTANCE). Please make sure that you complete the application below fully. When creating the thread please name it the following: Forum Name - Civilian Application Out of Character Questions: 1. What is your name? 2. What is your discord name? (Example: Jack C#0001) 3. What is your date of birth? 4. What is your Steam HEX Code? This is used to whitelist you and can be found from https://steamidfinder.com and is called "steamID64" 5. Have you ever had experience roleplaying on a server before? If so what server was it? (Include as much info as you can. Links, Screenshots, Videos or Vods) 6. Do you have a twitch channel, youtube channel or any sort of social media that you may/will stream the server with? Theoretical Character Questions: These questions are going to be asking you to create a "theoretical character" this is just so our application team can get a feel for your creativity and way of thinking. We ask you to go in as much detail as you can with this. Please note: you do not have to use this character when you get into the server BUT we ask that any character you make is to the same high quality - We are not allowing any weak backstories and your character must have a strong foundation with clear intent. 7. What is your characters name? 8. What is your characters birth date? 9. What made your character come to the city? 10. What is your characters background story? 11. What will your character do on the first day he arrives into the city? 12. Any extra details? Agreements and Terms: By applying for a whitelist for the Spectrum Roleplay I agree to the following: - Restrict access to my account to ensure that the only user accessing the server with it is the individual posting this application. (I agree/I disagree) - Understand that joining this server means that I have to play my character as a new person with no references to past memories or events from any other server/city. (I agree/I disagree) - Not intentionally begin witch hunts or start drama due to a situation not going the way I anticipated, or any other reason for the matter. (I agree/I disagree) - That I understand that administrators from the server can and will pull/suspend or permanently remove access to the server if I breech any of the rules or terms given to me. (I agree/I disagree)

    v2.0 [ECO UPDATE]

    Hello! Welcome to the developer's blog for one of the most important and content-filled updates that we have done so far on Spectrum Roleplay. Please be aware that visually not much has changed but the main reason we are naming this the big Version 2 update is because of the enormous economic reworks that we have done for this. v2.0 We have divided every single balance, cash and shared banking amount by 10. This pretty much knocks a 0 off the end of everything to make prices seem a little more realistic. Example: Range Rover costing $110,000 instead of $1,100,000. Added backend dynamics functions in for EVERY SINGLE payment method in and out. This allows us to edit the amount you earn in any amounts you pay out PER ACTIVITY dynamically every restart. Added in Drivers License, these can be purchased for $6,000 at the new Mors Mutual Insurance building. Please note that it will require you to have an active address. This can be a house or one of the new hotels/motels (read further down the blog), if this address is not correct and a police member does decide to check into this then a warrant can be put out for your arrest and a fine of up to $250,000 can be issued to your name. Added in Mors Mutual Insurance building Updated Insurance Paying Menu to include number plates (useful for staff related situations) Introduced Motels (Buildings that can be rented out for up to 7 days), each has an individual address and is considerably cheaper than renting a house. Removed Burgers and Water Bottles from store Added in Burger Shot building and interior Added in Burger Shot Supplier and Chef Jobs Reworked payment for legal jobs. You should now be able to earn more money completing legal jobs when there are no police online than selling moonshine or other low police drugs Added new Police undercover fleet for FBI Updated Customs to allow police to customize/edit undercover cars Updated mechanic's job to now REQUIRE you to tow a vehicle to the Paleto bay HQ to repair Added in replacement parts for Mechanics to use on cars AND ordering/delivery system or missions Updated User Z Menu to include a "Documents" tab where you can choose to access your normal ID, fake ID and Drivers License Updated U menu to include the amount of mechanics online (EMS and Police are still going to show Low/Medium/High) Added in Money Trails for Police to use in court cases. Police can now see users Depositing and Withdrawing money to and from banks (essentially a bank statement system) Vehicle streaming resources have been cleaned up significantly. A large amount of unused/barely used cars have been removed and the ones that are still present have been merged into larger more manageable packs. Police Bike has been updated All bike handling speeds have been reduced Updated all custom dealerships to now include a limited stock of Imported and Native GTA Cars Significant buffs have been made to Native GTA Cars More cars added to Simeon's garage including new SUV and Sports Cars Added more bikes to Duffy's Motorcycles Car price rebalance to introduce more worth and want to un-used native GTA cars (custom imports are now A LOT more expensive) Removed repair kits from all stores to prevent abuse and uselessness of mechanics Removed purchasable gun stores Reimplemented Dirty Money, all illegal activities will now be funded in dirty money. This can be cleaned at the Laundrette that will appear on anyone's map with more than 100 reputation. This location can be raided and will be moved regularly. Moved all Weed, Moonshine and Document Forgery locations Removed Blip to Forgery location on a map Added dirty money command (use /dm to see how much dirty cash you have on you) Added dirty money to show on the main character loading screen Updated housing prices for specific houses (higher end) Removed some Police vehicles (weren't used or were useless) Added the ability to give Dirty Cash to other players Added ability to take friends into Hotel rooms (Currently in BETA with instancing) Initial work has begun on the Spectrum OneSync port. Initial testing earlier this week shows promising results for the coming weeks. Added ability to change Drivers license address for free at insurance location Mechanic spawn points updated to be map-wide Wishing you all the best and remember to always wear your seatbelt!

    Economy Update

    Hello everyone! Recently we have ran into a problem that is beginning to cause unrealistic issues with the servers economy. We have decided to do a much needed update to the economy. This will happen on Friday 22nd February at 6PM Restart as long as no additional time or delays are impended (You will be notified if this is the case via discord). One of the things that we really didn't want to do from and admin perspective was do an entire reset. We feel this is unfair and obstructive to peoples role-play. We have decided to try another approach of resetting the economy per-person based on your current net-worth. We were finding that people were making too much money too quickly and we feel that it is more than needed for this to be updated. Not only will this include a large update to everything to do with money but we plan to bring in a few additional updates that we have been working on behind closed doors to help aid the pull-through of this change. An issue we have had in the past is that the moment anything like this is announced people decide to leave, or not want to earn money on the server due to it being reset shortly after. We are not aiming to do this and instead we are giving you a full detailed list of what will be changed on a personal basis now so you can financially plan into the future over the next few days and weeks to better aid yourself, your friends and your factions/business after this update is pushed. The things that will be changing: Car dealerships will no longer have an infinite stock, they will be required to save up and invest to add more cars to their showrooms. These car prices are going to be nerfed by a large mile, you will no longer be charged $180,000 for a low tier sports car. You will be able to buy these kinds of cars for more in the region of $50-75,000 Your bank balance will be corrected to 10% of its active amount before the restart on the 22nd - This may seem bad on retrospect but as everything else on the server will be brought down by the relative percentage it will even out once active. Insurance WILL NOT change! A large issue that we are having right now is the amount of high end super cars driving round on the server's streets. We have decided that we wont be removing your vehicles but the insurance that is imposed on these will be stationary even after the 22nd update. We will be adding in a solid Police rule which means any vehicles that are not ensured will be impounded and crushed regardless of the situation and you will be fined the asking amount of insurance you are overdue. We HIGHLY suggest looking into insurance and what your new income may be (pretty much just take what you earn now and times it by 0.1 (giving you 10%)) and make a decision based on this figure. We are aiming to have most high-end vehicles sold by the change-over date. We will be updating the Food System in game to add a larger variety of foods, this allows for there to be more social classification within the server down to the smaller details of what a certain character is eating. We are hoping to see newer players that have not built up an economic background yet to be walking round with cheap burgers while the more economically stable individuals may be there puffing a cigar and eating a quason (some kind of curly french bed). Drug and Job pay will be reworked to the new relativity of in-comings and out-goings. Extra updates will go through to all legal jobs to balance them out against illegal, this will also include pay towards PD, mechanics and EMS. Thus entailing possible updates to the three white-listed jobs listed prior. IMPORTANT: It is very important that after reading this thread you understand what is actually changing here. We are simply editing figures to make its seem more realistic when purchasing, selling and earning money in the server. In real life a burger and bottle of water would NOT cost $55! Please understand that the rich will still be the rich and the poor will still be poor but the numbers that are involved around the city will be reduced and normalised to what would be expected outside of the internet (yes outside does exist its not a myth). Thank You! If you do have any questions please be sure to ask us on discord and the organising staff members of the update will be there to advise and inform you of any changes (We have a temporary channel named #eco-updates that you can use to ask questions). Please do not assume certain things will change that have not been listed here. If you do want more information about a certain sector changing then please do ask first! We will be compiling all information, suggestions and finalising any changes closer to the the update date specified earlier in this post. Hope you all having a wonderful day! And remember, wear your seat-belts.

    Sorry for the lack of development posts this week, the new year is over, school is starting and some people are still trying to seek out what they would define as a "social life", although we have been silent, we have all been busy at work. We have an amazing developers blog for you, filled with some new features. Optimisations, Drugs and @Zeg Deg personal garage (he hasn't shut up about it for the past 3 days). v1.0.3 Added Police Boat Spawn points Added EMS Boat Spawn points Fixed one of the scripts that was causing an abundance of NPC's to spawn and give you that resource time warning Updated our Gym system, it no longer messes around with your animations after using Added a Fitness Meter, you can now run to increase your stamina Added a sweating system Fixed Police on Duty Notifications Added a bunch of new dances from the Night Club DLC (Club Interiors soon to come hopefully!) These can be used with /dance 1-23 New public drug (Meth) introduced - This drug can be made and sold with 0 police on and is designed to be able to grind reputation rather than money Added the ability to go down to humane labs and steal Ammonia (used to make a new drug) Added Match Boxes into General Stores (these can be used from your inventory to make 10 matches) Added that when you have 1 x Bottle of Ammonia, 1 x Cough Medicine and 5x Matches you can create 1 Bag of Meth at the cook location Added the function so that when you reach 1500 reputation the Document Forgery will appear on your map Added the ability so that when you reach 1500 reputation you can use the Document Forgery and make Fake ID's for yourself and other players ($150,000) Introduced the new PD Detective/FBI styled role. Some mechanic features will be coming to this soon Got distracted and still working on the advanced robberies (Soon™) We have now opened up our staff positions to be on an apply then promote style application rather than vote and promote style. You can now apply for the trainee role via this hyperlink [On the forums, if you are viewing this change-log in game]. All staff and promotions will now be handled by @Juan so if you have applied please don't ignore any messages he sends you. Development in terms of Cars, Bikes and other Addon Vehicles will now be ran by @sgtherbz . So If you got a deep in game pocket and you wanna request a custom car for a dealer to deal to you then go ahead and give him a message. We should start to see a more regular occurrence in Server and Discord events. These will now be managed by @Vodkaholic , So we can all look forward to hearing him sing the Russian nation anthem (and barbie girl). We are starting push on our social media side, this includes twitter, youtube and maybe instagram. This will be primarily ran by @Zeg Deg so if you got any cool clips that he can use be sure to post them on our #rp-screenshots channel in discord for him to savour his opinions. @Recoil is just gonna continue to do what he does, we don't know this is really. He is just kind of useless useful at times. We are currently working on a restructure for EMS (this includes looking for a new leading supervisor) if you think you fit the role be sure to apply (you can find this in the navigation bar above) We are also currently restructuring and finalising training documents on the Police Department behalf, if you are interested in helping out there then I am sure you know what to do (application tab on nav bar**) The map has now been completely de-christmified due to reasons we can only blame Recoil for, there were still a few santa shrines around the map Work has begun on the new house robbery system, this does include each house having their own interior allowing you to place down storage boxes and move, will this ever be finished or a viable option? Maybe? Probably? We will have to see! Issues that resulted in users not loading in the Pillbox hospital interior correctly as well as a similar bug that didn't allow some clients to load in at all has been resolved from our side. If you still do have issues loading in jump on the discord and create a support ticket. There is a connection and IP whitelist fix that we have devised for the server for the few people that have particularly picky internet providers. Someones calling on your god damn Telephone! That's right, @Zeg Deg made a new ringtone. Its great, we love it, I listen to it on loop before bed. We are working on the feature where you will be able to change the ringtone between multiple Rob Stain Hit Singles! We added in a few new locations around the map for Garages. These wont show up on the GPS but they are there. Trust me. We are mid process of shuffling around all of the admin and staff commands, Helpers will begin to be able to be a lot more helpful and Moderators much more moderative?? A bunch of Administrator commands have been added in which allow them to reset your peds, twitter name, character name and other cool things. No need to message a Developer and wait for them to do it "after a restart"! Not going to bore you with anything else, a bunch of back-end updates went through to our panel and management system however there will be no noticeable changes to any regular players because of it. Remember if you like this update give us a thumbs up, if you don't then... We aren't youtube and don't have a dislike button so go complain to Recoil. If you find any bugs be sure to report them and any suggestions let us know. We will be going through Business and Faction applications later tonight in the staff meeting (after the community meeting) and we will be discussing the possibility for Player allowed Pilot and Flight.
