  4. April 2018 Newsletter Sorry for the delay on producing this months newsletter but nevertheless we have another great batch of updates for you all! Faction Team @Wright wrote a fantastic announcement to keep the community updated on the things that FT does in the background you might not know about. Outlined is our Jewelry Heist, Cartel drug deal, and a new event for factions in the works. We specifically are supporting illegal RPers that want to make a quick buck on stolen goods. You can read the article below: Also give a chance to read about the mysterious faction event: Rule Changes Faction Interior Activity We have added explicit rules regarding faction interiors after a FT meeting that occurred in April. We wanted to be more clear about how to handle cases where factions might horde interiors, or include personal interiors in their F3. However we did not want to apply the same rules as the inactivity scanner to faction interiors so we clarified that if the faction has a plan for the interior being worked out, it is considered active. You can read the full rule change here: https://gitlab.com/OwlGamingCommunity/docs/commit/7d44cd684fd81b385221ac85ec586515119d6ee1 Property Break In... Clarified. In a community suggestion, it was suggested to add a clause to interior break in rules if another person has recently logged out of the interior. It was approved by a majority of the community and added. The community discussion can be found here: You can read the full rule change here: https://gitlab.com/OwlGamingCommunity/docs/commit/d7541f9cfe00eb619bf04349583d5dad553ab5ca Clarified Scamming We recently had a case come up in game that prompted some administrators scratch their head with how to handle it. The situation was, a vehicle was stolen when a player was taking it for a test run before buying it. We wanted to clarify that this is not scamming as there was no exchange in currency and no promise of purchase. You can read the full rule change here: https://gitlab.com/OwlGamingCommunity/docs/commit/06a5650784780834264e164a2f79cc3da80e5e5e Community & Script Updates Check out the big updates recently, posted in our Announcements & News area of the forums. Server Script Update - April 2018 Game Administration Team Update - April 2018 Terrorist Event After a community vote, we will be having a terrorist event in game! We understand it will be difficult to get everyone involved in such an event so we are going above and beyond to try and reach players. We have already internally planned the event, as well as begun the first phase with members of the community. More to come very soon, but if you haven't already read my post about how to stay informed and involved in this event! Community Spotlight Interesting Article Portside wrote an interesting article about a shooting recently outside of a club which sparked a lot of great roleplay for many people involved, causing the intervention of the District Attorney to evaluate the complex case. Lots of trickle down roleplay is occurring in turn for the LSPD, lawyers, security guards at the scene, club-goers, etc. Character Stories Take a look at what @Wallaby, @Unitts and @Jamie wrote this month! I'm happy to see a new face with Wallaby joining oG and Abigale looks like an interesting character. Be sure to submit your own character stories, as well as update them when life changing events occur for your character. Portside & Club Tableau Check out the night life scene with @Portside's Club Tableau. Milk before Cereal or Cereal before Milk? Some sophisticated discussion occurred this month in a heated debate about how we enjoy our breakfast. Thanks! @Simonman80 OwlGaming In a Nutshell @Cross125 released a video this month showcasing some of the nonsensical interactions you may encounter here.. 🙈 Media & Screenshots We didn't have anyone send in any screenshots this month 😢 Please send us some screenshots to be showcased! Here is a collection of my favorites from some faction threads: @AlmightyNinja @DanielV @JohnM Also be sure to read @Unitts blog post from the event: Stats Upper Administration processed 29 UA Contacts in April! 5,530 Reports in the last month handled!
  5. Server Script Update (v6.3.2.4) | April, 2018 New Boat Shop Mapping Easter Event This easter event was especially interesting as it included IC company sponsorship's which made it possible. I hope to do the same thing for future events. Changes to Armor Me and Sjoerd were discussing how we can implement some community suggestions regarding player armor this update. We wanted to make it more clear what the difference in armor tiers get you and which you are wearing. We threw around the idea of making it physically visible on the character but we also didn't want to restrict people from wearing the vest under their clothes. Sjoerd threw together a system so that each armor item would have their own percentage of armor and would deteriorate on damage. However we ran into issues with making sure this performed properly. It became difficult to determine which armor you were wearing and each time you were damaged we'd have to update the value of the item to reflect that. This was harsh on server performance in our tests and less than ideal. In the end we decided to adopt a system similar to how GTAV handles armor. You can hold as many vest items as you can carry and then you simply click the item to apply it. The item is immediately removed and the player armor is set accordingly. This means you can't take off your vest, once it's applied it will stay on until used up to 0%. You can put on another(stronger) vest to overwrite the old value however if you choose. We hope to implement a upper right corner icon near the health "heart" that shows your armor percentage if you are wearing one. We hope this will make things a little more clear. Other Changes: The speedcam will now output to your console if you are using the UI for logging purposes /ignorelist now respects the PM username setting Dinoco now has access to the object spawner More consistent avatar cache Updated the clothing UI to show the right file size limit Age removed from /look as it's subjective and described by existing physical features Improvements to /look so there's more room for text Players can see admin /ed Reduced the delay of weapon shellcasings Disabled the stock siren on the firetruck in favor of the custom one /givemoveitem will allow players to move items in dimension 0 so they don't have to yell at admins for not moving it just how they want it BUG1423: Adjusted the vehicle color to white when previewing a vehicle texture to not interfere with the texture itself BUG1436: Fixed insurance policies persisting on vehicles for longer than they should Climb ladder truck is now in the right click menu Closing Remarks Internally we moved to GitLab for all our projects. You can view some open sourced code here: https://gitlab.com/OwlGamingCommunity I understand this update doesn't have huge flashy features and I apologize for that. This is a busy time of the year as finals are throughout the month of April leaving me with little time for development. Thanks again to Yannick and our trial scripters for helping out.

    Next Event

    Heya, as usual I'm doing a poll to see what ideas people had for a server event. The flood coupled with gas shortage was a fun twist a couple months ago! Hoping we can do something the community wants again. Leave your suggestions below, I'll take the couple most suggested ones in a poll later.
  7. Chaos

    [General] - Replacing a object with a dog.

    This single dog object is double the download of car models. Its HD modeled from V and doesn't fit SA at all. Find a better model.

    [Poll] Server Event

    Planning for the event is pretty much complete. This event is more tricky to get as much of the community involved and also keep it not super cliche.. To Make the Most of this Event Stay tuned on discord in the #terrorist-event channel Read and participate in City Activity posts made by event organizers (we will be watching who sympathizes with our cause ) Tune into the radio frequency which may be found on posters IG and in city activity, it will help you stay informed when something is happening IG Everyone can participate in the event!

    [Poll] Server Event

    This is conflicting since our last event was destructive it would be nice to have the festival. However Terrorist attack is ahead by 7 votes. I'll give the poll till the end of the day and then take the final votes!

    [General] - Character Appearance

    Please note I already denied this suggestion. Therefore locking it

    [Faction Property Inactivity] - New Rule

    We discussed this at the FT meeting today and decided to handle this on a case by case basis. If a player finds an interior they want that a faction owns, they should contact the faction leaders and make an offer. If that fails and they suspect that the interior is being held without activity, an appeal can be made to FT. The FT contact should be handled by the assigned members of that faction to investigate. If they are found to be hording an interior that they have no plans to use and do not RP with, it can be considered F3 abuse. The interior would be taken from them and a strike issued on the faction.

    Can you imagine going to a populous area and hitting alt? 🤢🤢🤢 rip fps

    [General] - Character Appearance

    This was suggested before and denied due to cluttering the interface. It's not hard to /look
  18. I forgot that the UI shows the last login date actually. How many days are you considering "active"?
  19. Note that this would take an extra step for admins to check the last login date

    [VCT Member commands (REVISE)] - Revise

    Supers? Seniors don't really have much to do with VT so how would they know when it's okay to give out such powers?
  21. Chaos

    [VCT Member commands (REVISE)] - Revise

    That would be a lot to log. There are many different micro adjustments that can be made to each car. And either way, VT leaders can't check logs so they wouldn't be able to tell.
  22. Chaos

    [VCT Member commands (REVISE)] - Revise

    This would be difficult to check for cases of abuse.
