Hello all and MERRY CHRISTMAS! Here is a culmination of what we have been working on over the past 2 weeks!
- Police now specify a reason for a vehicle impound, to easier track who seized / impounded a vehicle and why
- Added a weapon draw animation to the Viking and battle axes
- Added snow for the month of December
- Added effects when crashing your vehicle, depending on the severity. This includes motion blur, blackout effects and temporary disabling your vehicle
Introduction of the Web Panel!
- The web panel will be a means for players to access game functions from their web browser, or even phone at https://app.fatduckgaming.com/
- You will be prompted to set a password for your account when you log in, which is used to sign into the web panel
Right now, it is primarily used for new staff tools, however it will be where many in game / forums / discord functions end up
- Weazel News
- Business Panels (replacing discord / boss menu / google sheets)
- Ban appeals
- In and out of game reporting systems
- Account Management
- Car Sales (no more selling on twitter!)
- Property Viewing and sales
The police also have this snazzy new MDT known as COPS (Core Operational Policing System)
- Allows cops to search for people, vehicles and see details, mugshots
- This allows the police to conduct more in depth RP, stepping away from constant shootouts.
- The idea is to encourage cops to conduct investigations, take notes / mugshots.
- It is available through both in game, and through the web browser panel
- It even logs in automatically through game
Changes / Tweaks!
Changed vehicle tow requests
- Requests are automatically deleted from mechanics when the vehicle is no longer within 25 meters of the call. This is to avoid going to a call and having no vehicle there
- Requests are cleared when towed by other mechanics, including from other companies!!!
- Requests which are older than 45 minutes are automatically cleared, and the vehicle automatically deleted (not impounded or seized, only deleted from the world)
- Drastically tweaked the off-road script to really punish cars going off-road
- Seized vehicles must be collected
- Adjusted the sensitivity of the speed radar
- Massively upgraded ban evasion detection and anticheat. Hopefully more secure than ever!
- Tapping X will cancel animations without putting hands up
- Entering the water while have hands cuffed (or in ragdoll) will no longer instantly kill you
- Tweaks to staffing systems to improve in game issues
- Bans / warns / timeouts are no longer globally announced to the server
- Fixed the changes to the off-road script which made cars not reset when driving on road
- Fixed COPS being accessible on civilian characters
- Fixed ejection off motorbikes
- Fixed the interaction circle (center white circle for the E menu) getting stuck on your screen
- Fixed doors periodically not locking
- Fixed ATMs not showing the display, and taking a long time to trigger the 3D text
- Fixed heaps more things that I am too lazy to write!
