  1. GTA:V Public Beta Release Date What is the release date? This is the #1 most asked question we get every day. We have a new answer: watch the trailer above. What is the duration of the public beta? There isn't one. Once we're out, we are out. We'll continue to provide frequent script updates and when we're happy with removing the beta tag, we'll do so. Is there any wipe involved in the transition from public beta to full release? No. Will my MTA/OwlGaming account work for V? Yes, your account is shared across both games. Will there be stat transfers from MTA to V? No. While your core account data is shared (e.g. username, password), nothing else is. The logic behind this decision is that V is a separate universe from MTA/GTASA and it would not make sense that characters/factions exist as is within both, vastly different, universes. Will my GCs be usable on V? Existing donator perks will not transfer over. However, any GC acquired, even prior to release, can be redeemed on V. How do I connect to the server? How do I install the modification? We will be providing a connection guide closer to when the public beta is launched. Can I reserve MTA character names? MTA Characters that have been recently used and have a large number of hours played, will be unavailable to create on V. This is to prevent users from lazily using the exact same characters and character development (which doesn't make sense in a parallel universe) and to prevent trolling. We look forward to welcoming you all onto the V server shortly! Kind Regards, - OwlGaming Game Administration - OwlGaming Development Team
  2. Unfortunately, RP schools were never a super effective way to ensure new players are trained. They require a lot of time and sync up between when admins (or supporters) would be online. I'm interested in other solutions for this. Obviously we'd be less strict with punishments but it would be cool if Owl released some sort of video tutorial series for new comers if they really wanted to improve their RP.
  3. Ban Leniency and Reminder of the Open Door Policy Ban Leniency In accordance with our announcement on stream, we are introducing a leniency on current ban records. This means if you are currently banned for any reason (that isn't a blacklist) you are eligible to received a much lighter sentence of a unban on the spot. If you think an admin is still being overly harsh with your ban please reach out to me. I would love to hear it. To give a couple examples, Bob was banned for powergaming after gaining > 20 points on the ban system. Even though his infractions were minor, they built up to a long term ban. Bob is perfectly eligible to be unbanned, today. Peter was banned for alt-alt with a 20 point infraction. He was since unbanned but received a couple of points for MG resulting in a perm ban. This is a misuse of the system if his ban was to be upheld for longer than necessary. Peter can be unbanned after only a couple days or a week. We will be continuing this policy up to the release of V. Open Door Policy I wanted to take a moment to remind players about Owl's open door policy with members of UA and specifically the Head Admins. If you have any concerns of suggestions to bring up to staff, please reach out to myself or another Head Admin. At the very least we can help direct you to where on the forums such an idea could be posted so the whole community can get involved. I have been hearing concerns of corruption within the GAT ranks. I take these seriously, please reach out to me ASAP if you have proof of such an event. I can ensure you remain anonymous in your report and we can look at resolving it. Just to re-iterate, I'm always available on the OwlGaming Discord with my PMs open. I also will respond to any forum PMs I receive. I know many are adverse to creating a formal ticket for complaints, so this is a way for you to write something short and sweet to see immediate results. Thank you everyone, we're a community together. We have to work together, not against one another to improve the quality of the server. You make a difference in shaping the direction of oG. - OwlGaming Community
  4. The point of the general type, is to be miscellaneous that doesn't fit in other categories.
  5. Points to address that I've seen here, sorry if I missed someone or something. Please PM me if I did. - Illegal Rolepaly is inactive: Some people mentioned that it's too difficult to run an illegal faction and get official. What is the area we can improve this? It's basically, make faction reports regularly which details your activity, have a faction thread where you share roleplay. FT will recognize it as you develop and you'll be granted support. I understand I'm making it sound easy but it's also not meant to be hard. There's def illegal RPers that we are missing, but many just get bored of MTA and there's not much we can do about that. - Corrupt admins Please report them, I've seen no evidence of corrupt admins. I'm swift to handle them if they are. - Lack of events We do a lot of events. But we had a GAT meeting today and spoke to admins about creating their own roleplay scenarios with other people playing to help eliminate the ghost town feeling. We also need the players help here to create events too. - Too many bans As mentioned on stream, we are going to do a very slack unbanning process leading up to V. However, if there are some overly harsh bans made, please staff report so we can investigate. - Too many trollers Sort of conflicts with other reports made here about too many bans. We are doing our best to find a balance but harmless trolling is usually ignored among friends. If it is really affecting RP we will and do take that seriously. The OP requested this be closed, so it will be. If there are specific suggestions to discuss then please make rule discussions, script suggestions, general discussions, or staff reports. There are so many avenues we have for discussing new ideas and we ENCOURAGE them. Thank you for making this thread, it does show there are many people here that care about the longevity of Owl, as do I.
  6. Please give us your feedback on the stream! https://forms.gle/3FfvMzdBKPjkUFRY8 Thanks everyone!
  7. Staff reporting works, use it. There's no other way for us to know about so called "corrupt admins"
  8. What update? I don't follow. What are you wanting changed? That's why I asked for suggestions. In all the things I just mentioned only one of them was about V yet you claim we are letting MTA die?
  9. Opposite of true, we just hosted two events back to back. Many UA were IG for those events as well to make articles and RP with players. A script update was released not long ago, as well as a GAT update recently. We are doing a stream for V as well today. I agree we've missed a few newsletters but in no way have we slowed down in what we do for Owl. It's also up to the players to create some roleplay for themselves. If you have specific suggestions reply here or let me know.
  10. I just answered that. No offense, but I can already tell you don't speak very good english so this is sort of only confirming my point..
  11. There are no english RP servers on MTA that gets numbers like that anymore. Only RPGs seem to be doing alright and even then, their english players seem to have dissipated. I think geographically, MTA is shifting to Western EU. Owl requiring a high level of English proficiency is a block that most MTA players can't get passed anymore.
  12. I agree the on hold feature is out of date, even if an event is going on we can't expect people to respect the on hold labels since we tell them they can still report when it's marked as on hold. To remove confusion we'll remove those labels. As for your rule suggestion I believe it's no longer required? You were under the assumption that the on hold labels were always on for that reason but they aren't, it's mainly admins forgetting to turn them on
  13. GTA:V Showcase Stream OwlGaming staff will be hosting a gameplay stream on Youtube next Saturday, July 6th around 21:00UTC. In this approximately 1 hour stream we will be showcasing many of the features that we created to make our server unique. This stream will also give you the ability to give us feedback on areas you think we should expand on before launching. Many GAT members and users with the beta-tester role on discord will be online so that we can create some dynamic RP scenes. You can find the stream on our Youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCov1MwxOPcO_Pi_b5JGT_rQ Additionally, make sure you're in our discord to receive a notification in the #announcements channel when we go live! Thank you for your patience in the development of GTA:V, we can't wait to show you what we've created with ❤️. Kind Regards, - OwlGaming Game Administration - OwlGaming Development Team

    /afk command.

    Agree with vubs, just F10.
  15. Sorry mate Don't have any ideas for you
  16. You can try uninstalling and deleting your server resources cache to force a redownload, nothing we can really do unfortunately. It's an issue in your network routing to our server. You can delete your resource cache at Program Files/MTA/mods/deathmatch/resources/ Delete all the files/folders in there.
  17. Vote for the musical event in that case!
  18. Hey! I tend to annually do a major server event and poll from the community which idea we will commit to. I’ve added some options to the poll but if another idea comes up in this thread that gains a lot of support (please like the person that posted that original idea if you want that idea) then that could be done too. Thanks for your input
