  1. Changelog 14 Mar 18

    LSLA/FDG Development Team Update – 14/03/18 Hello people, so tonight we are pushing a few new features/updates and bug fixes; Drug locations have packed up camp and move around the map! Note these are all new locations; nothing has been reused (thanks Marty). You will note the following changes; - There is no longer specific drug sell locations for each drug type! Now instead you will find a Drug dealer that accepts every type of drug! These have been conveniently placed near LSPD (City) and BCSO (County) look for the red D! - We have also fixed a bug allowing people to use the weed facilities with no cops online. - The rewards for Drugs have been increased to be better than civ jobs, as crime should pay more (risk vs reward). - We have also fixed a fair few bugs within our business system; - Business owners (bosses) should be able to clean money correctly now, with a live feed showing their business bank accounts. - Bosses within LSPD/County/HWY can now correctly clean money and buy new weapons for their staff. New Vehicles; - EMS has three new vehicles for them to use. - Admins have a few new toys to test before we implement to others. On to server stability issues; You will obviously note that since our port across to a new dedicated server the reliability of the servers suffered. Now this was a combination of problems all occurring at once, which took a while to troubleshoot and investigate. Apologies for the downtime and loss of cash due to restarts! - Our admin panel has been fixed, it had a hidden setting that would ‘stop’ the service if the slots were exceeded (33/32). - We had a temporary fix added to the server for our ELS (emergency lighting system) this was causing large hitch warnings, which generate frame lag or ‘desync’ this has since been fixed.(edited) New features coming; - You might have noticed a new job in the job centre. Car Thief is coming, it will be a new job for civilians, it can include a boss to manage the staff under it, and however we are unsure at this stage. Testing is still underway, I would love to add it now but need more time to get rid of some nasty bugs, also balancing needs to occur so we get the correct amounts for the job (it pays dirty money). - We are currently working on the fire department (FD), so far coding and testing efforts have been going well! We have established a fire spawn system that randomly generates a fire across the map. FD are notified and if the fire is not put out with a certain period, it can grow quite large! The job and rank structure has been put in place to accommodate this new feature when it goes live with a HQ with spawn points for vehicles and uniforms for our firefighters! - Food and Beverage system (hunger and thirst) will be added soon, we are still testing to ensure everything works as intended. Fine-tuning the percentage of drain per minute will have to be thoroughly tested, as we do not want you to feel like you have to eat/drink every 5 minutes! - Vehicle inventory is being looked at to include a rating for each car type, this will allow customizable weight requirements depending on the vehicle type. Eg if you try and store Coke in your small 2 door ford focus, it should be less than if you were to take say a giant truck? That is what we are hoping to implement soon, testing is already underway to ensure appropriate amounts are set. - Car wash! Many have asked for it, so we have thrown something together to add this feature for you all. It is under testing now as we have run into a few bugs but will give you guys an update in our next briefing! - New jobs for civilians, we are looking at adding a trucker job/pizza delivery and a few other specialties however this has only just begun, will give you an update soon! That is it for this week; we hope you enjoy your time on! If you have any issues please submit a bug report here;
  2. Changelog 08 Mar 18

    LSLA Development Team Update – 08/03/18 Hey people, so tonight we are pushing across to our new server host, along with that we will be pushing the current updates live; - Removed ball from the blacklist as it wipes player’s weapon inventory when purchased. - Tattoo shop! Check for the blips around the map to purchase tattoos for yourself. - The Lost MC now has their complete rank structure in game watch out for them, they are armed and dangerous! - K9 unit WITH K9 unit cars have been added; we are still heavily testing however but should be fully implemented shortly! - Updates to our loading screen. - Fixed bugs with the scoreboard (now the DEL key to access) made the text bigger and lowered the spacing between ID and player name. - Added a new range of vehicles for LSPD (City) this include the entire NSW Police skins in ELS. - By popular demand, we have increased the value for the tyre popping script to make them less likely to explode; this rate is now much slower than what we had previously. No changes were made to the damage script itself as we felt it was sufficient for RP needs. - Flare gun has been added to PD inventory to aid in search and rescue operations. - ELS now has an extra script added to restart the resource every 30 minutes, this will help prevent crashes/glitches to the ELS system. We have many new and exciting features coming along with a few new cars that will be purchasable at your local dealer. If you have any issues please submit a bug report here; LSLA Development Team
