Good day to you all. It's been a little bit over a week since our release and quite a lot has actually happened already so we figured it'd be best to make a status update on some important changes that are happening in the community.
Staff Team Changes
First and most important issue we noticed is how slow some illegal FMT decisions were happening which was mainly due to the timezone differences between the two FMT members we have for it. As a way to improve this we've decided to appoint a new Head of Illegal FMT, R4cc00n, to give him more power on his decision as well as no requirement to wait on us to push them forward. In addition to that: We've spoken to all of our staff members to see who's still interested in moving forward with us and who has lost interest. We ended up with a few people leaving the team while others have received a promotion today, the changes are:
R4cc00n - Trial Admin > Head Admin (Head of Illegal FMT)
SonnyB - Trial Admin > Admin
DonnieV - Trial Admin > Admin
Erny - Resignation
Decabyte - Resignation
Dandr3 - Resignation
Upcoming Illegal Changes
Thanks to some concept systems we were given by R4cc00n we're more than happy to say that the entire Chop Shop rules are going through a complete overhaul in which it's no longer going to be limited to just chop shop related factions as well as lots of other changes in terms of pricing and other minor details are going to be introduced soon. Once R4cc00n is ready this system will be pushed to the public and everyone will be aware of it.
In addition to the chop shop rule updates there are also going to be some major changes to vehicle theft rules and once these changes are live all the thefts will be removed from being placed on a temporary hold. We've added a new base of rules in which more character development will be required before players are allowed to actually steal vehicles as well as some other major changes in terms of how we're going to handle the entire "notify the LSPD" situation.
And last but not least, we're on the final steps for developing the drug system (pricing, rules, etc.) and do hope that the drug drops are going to happen really soon!
Legal Factions Updates
The segment you guys have been asking a lot about. Today we're more than happy to announce that LST&R is finally ready to accept new members as R4cc00n has managed to develop everything he wanted to before pushing in new members, additionally we're currently looking for a new Los Santos Disposal Services leader so if you're interested please drop me a forum PM on why you believe you'd be a perfect candidate as well as your business plans for the faction.
As some of you have already noticed we've made a upcoming scripts feedback thread in which you've guys already voted quite a lot of opinions. Thanks to this thread we've managed to set some new short term plans in terms of upcoming script updates which should be coming relatively soon. Additionally, we're more than happy to say that we've pushed a fully rewritten nametag & chat bubble system last night which will not only show a major improvement to performance but also a major improvement to your vision as the new chatbubbles are no longer as huge as they used to be and we've followed absolutely all of your feedback on them to make them as readable as possible!
That's all we have for today, we do hope that you'll appreciate all the effort we're putting into this community as we're no where close to stopping,
