Facebook Competition

That’s right, it’s about time we have another facebook event. This time it’ll be something that’s going to require a little bit of effort from the contestants, though I am sure it will bring a lot of laughter to our facebook viewers. Let’s get to it, shall we?!

It’s simple. To take part in this contest, I’m gonna need you to go in-game and take the weirdest screenshot, with the weirdest people, weirdest animations, at the weirdest location. Be creative; seek heights, underground places, skyscrapers, cranes, trees – whatever pops in to your mind. You can only participate with one screenshot, and if there’s more than one person in your screenshot, only one of you can attend the contest. Make sure to shout 'LAWLESS ROLEPLAY' so we know the screenshots are
authentic. Post the results in the comment section on facebook!

The winner gets Portal 2 steam game as well as a full weapon set in-game. The winner will be picked next saturday (05.03.2014) .

Scheduled Maintenance

There will be a scheduled maintenance on Monday, April 28th, 8:00 - 9:00 AM GMT + 0 (London time zone). This should result in approximately 1 hour of connectivity loss during the time frame.

We will be moving to a brand new box with an Intel Xeon E3-1270v3 processor (four physical 3.5ghz cores on QPI + hyperthreading + turbo = 3.9ghz per core).

We will also have 240GB solid state drive which will store the server files & database to deliver the top of the line speed on write and read. We will also be having a router restart to increase bandwidth and security.

The brand new server is fully ready and prepared. The long downtime is due to restoring the database on the new solid state drive as well as the router restart.

More information will be released once the update is completed. We thank you for your understanding!

Hello outlaws, some of you might have noticed slight decrease in my activity, that was because I have been working on a brand new project for the one year anniversary celebrations and for you to enjoy.

Lawless Roleplay Android User Control Panel
I have been thinking a lot on how to say thanks to such great players like you guys, after thinking for few days this idea came up to my mind, however, I couldn't do it without Shock's help, let's cut the useless speech and move onto the application's features.
VERSION 1.0:
  • Secure login to your in-game account.
  • Easy to reach server information for new comers.
  • The most important points in (/stats & /inv) in a beautiful graphical user interface.
  • Explore your vehicles storages (Crack, Pot, Chemicals).
  • Explore your houses information and their safes (ID, Level, Crack, Pot, Materials).
  • Explore your businesses information and their safes (Name, Level, Safe Money, Products Left). Up to 10 businesses.
  • Banned players can't access their accounts, they need to post ban appeal.
DOWNLOAD:

Post your suggestions here!​

P.S: If you don't have an Android device, I'll explain how to download this on a very cool & fast android emulator.

Don't forget to rate the application after trying it, enjoy!
Hey guys,

We have always been dedicated to providing players with the best experience in SA-MP and for that we need to have a smooth server code. From this update onwards, every single server restart or code edit will be released in small topics like these. Larger releases will have detailed explanations of what's new.

We released a quick server patch (v1.2.522) on the server to address multiple bugs and add a few minor features. The most notable change is that if you tab out to avoid death (/accept death screen), C.O.C.K. will kill you.

Changelog:
- Fixed the percentage sign for the DM warning notification upon login
- Disabled /rubberbullets being available to everyone and only available to cops
- Fixed a LSFMD bug which spammed you with the patient's location
- Fixed a bug with /wat being out of bounds
- Disabled Easter Egg Hunt event
- You no longer can use bombs whilst cuffed (/armbomb and /pb)
- Fixed a massive easter egg and business finding bug (This has increased CPU pressure by 1% each time someone does /loadtruck)
- Rescripted /hname to be more like /bname (It will offline or online force a player to own a house)
- Fixed a minor bug with land saving buildings that did not exist
- Fixed a bug where certain things in /check was cut off
- Adverts can no longer contain >, <, ^, _, :, ; and a few more characters (This is to decrease metagame and abbreviation use on /ad)
- Adverts cannot be less than 15 characters
- Price per character has increased to $30 per letter so the most you'd ever pay is $2, 000 for a 66 character advert
- Fixed a minor bug with truck loading hijack warning message which would cut of the screen
- Added a new C.O.C.K. module which detects when players tab out whilst dead (awaiting the /accept death screen) and it will kill them. This is to decrease players alt-tabbing out of the game to prevent their death
- Increased the global land string size (to prevent buildings in /lands cutting out)

EDIT: All businesses whose map icon (the little icon/ logo on your minimap) is in a crowded area, near a job, or obstructing a place of interest's map icon will have it's map icon hidden.

This is my way of saying thank you for staying with us through this year, even if you just arrived or have been here from the start. I hope you find this feature as interesting as I do.

The link to the statistics page is here, but there is also a tab on the top of the forums. If you see any bugs, or have any suggestions, PM Shock.

Special thanks to Tiber and Kestro for the skin GFX, and Barney for testing this with me through the whole development stage.

We have more in store for you, so stay tuned!
It feels like it was only yesterday we opened our doors... Exactly 364 days ago, myself, Shock, Leii and a big bucket of hope opened this server. We set out a mission statement and promised to always abide by it.

Our mission statement to you...
Lawless Roleplay is, and always, will be a community first and a game server second. We are dedicated to fostering an environment with a member-centric approach where all players have equal potential for in game success and community recognition.

Why play here?
Lawless Roleplay was originally founded on the principle that all players should rise or decline based on the actions of the person behind the player. We feel that success should be determined by a players actions and talents and not the whim of an administrative team. We have great code. We have great staff. We have great players. But most importantly we have a vigilant regard for your potential.

Is this a roleplay server?
We have worked to provide many in game tools for roleplay and it is absolutely encouraged however not required. We feel that any preferred mode of play that does not encroach on any other player’s enjoyment of the game is productive. Due to the harsh nature of game mode frequent player versus player violent interaction should be expected. However, this does not mean that players are allowed to kill other players for no reason.

We opened our doors on 19th April 2013 to be instantly welcomed by a wave of over 200 players. We had 86 people online the second we removed the password on the server. Then, 5 minutes later we had well into the 100s. Now we hit new highs such as 172 players and we continue to grow. Nothing like this is possible without the admins, the staff and most importantly you. Welcome to the city of lunatics.

When we opened our doors on 19th April 2013, immediately people gained many new friends, allies and enemies. People from all over the SA-MP community came to Lawless because of our mission statement and a firm stance on siding with players. Over the years, we saw enemies fight a lot, new friendships, enemies fight, gangs be formed, leaders be born, rules be broken, hackers be banned, materials be ran, trucks deliver, miners mine, drugs be smuggled, shotguns be shot, people get tazed, turfs be won, events be lost, factions go up and factions go down. We laughed, smiled, yelled, hated, loved and fought but above all we did what we came to do: We had fun, and the fun is only starting. Forget all the negatives DDoS attacks and other hack attempts. This is for you, cheers!

We have over 800, 000 logins, 1, 200, 000 connections, 88, 000 registrations, 9, 000 hours of uptime, 9200 hackers auto banned, 21, 000 forum threads, 163, 000 forum posts and 4,000 forum accounts at time of this post.

Thank you. You have supported us over the year beyond what I could imagine. You've always been here for us and we continue to enjoy and extend our relationship with you and create many more.

So, here's to you Lawless Roleplay.... Happy Birthday!
___________________________

We have always said that is is simply more logical to teach the script how to make great roleplay rather than teach people to be expert roleplayers. Lawless Roleplay has always been forward thinking. And that's exactly what the update is now. The robbery and fishing jobs are pioneering. The anti-cheat is innovative. Lawless Roleplay is ahead of its time. These features are all at the service of people. Not the other way round. And they're evidence that innovation can prevail over rampant updates. That's progress. And that's a beautiful thing. We're growing every second of the year.

We believe that all our members should experience smooth gameplay and interaction between another. For the past few weeks, we have been working extremely hard to iron out from very irritable issues for our members. This may be a small update but it has great significance towards what we are aiming to accomplish with Lawless Roleplay. It sets the playground for future updates.
