Hello brothers and sisters.

I am here with a small announcement regarding the downtime today.

Our ISP have been target by a large scale distributed denial of service attack which has corrupted several configuration files. This has caused the game server and teamspeak server to go down, and we are required to load backups.

There's no need to panic. The backups were taken 15 minutes before the files corrupted. No playerfiles or data have been affected by this.

You can stay up to date and get a notification when we are up by liking and following our facebook page.

We thank you for your patience while we are working to fix this issue.
IMPORTANT Server downtime
Howdy brothers,

I am here today with some bad news sadly. We have always been looking beyond and reaching the standards our community demands and deserves.

Today, a new unforgivable hack was released that when used caused servers to close and crash. We are waiting for SA-MP to release a fix and we know that this may take a long time so we also stepping up our debug platforms to see if this can be prevented using game code. Nothing damaging has happened to the server, player data or any files. It's just the server is crashing when the hack is being directed at us.

Sorry about any inconvenience caused. Me and my team are working extremely hard to find the cause and resolve any issues.

*** Update: We got a solution in the works. Please in the mean time, make sure you are using the latest SA-MP client available from http://files.sa-mp.com/sa-mp-0.3x-R1-2-install.exe

*** Update 2: SA-MP just released a temp. fix for it. We're waiting for our version to be released.

*** Update 3: We're back up! Thanks to the wonderful and hardworking SA-MP team who released a fix in less than a few hours.

Thank you everyone for your support and help during this hard time. Everyone has been sending me PMs of ways to fix it, updates and so forth. You're awesome!
Okay, so I might be a little late on schedule. The entire team at Lawless Roleplay would like to wish everyone a healthy, successful New Year!

We have updated the forums to the latest version 1.2.4. This brings a ton of fixes as well as our forum theme has been updated to fit the new software. Hopefully, you'll enjoy the smooth as baby bum experience as I have been whilst beta testing it.

We will also be running some special Facebook competitions starting from tomorrow so be sure to like the page and stay up to date. You won't want to miss out some of the awesome giveaways.

We hope that everyone has enjoyed a fantastic holiday season at Lawless Roleplay and wish everyone a Happy New Year. Thanks to the entire Lawless Roleplay community for your amazing support in 2013 and get ready for big things to come in 2014!

P.S. We also released a awesome signature stats display. Simply use the following to display your IG stats:

We're often faced with a paradox during server updates, we want to have new features that have a member-centric approach. But at the same time, we want these to be new and exciting compared to the other 3, 000 roleplay servers. The more we add new features, the more difficult it becomes to make the next update more exciting. But if we can overcome these challenges, we can make something without compromise. Update 1.2.2 comes with over 100 bug fixes and new features such as the forklift job create an enhanced dynamic environment. It simply makes more sense to teach the script how to make great roleplay rather than teach people to be expert roleplayers. A remarkably simple update that packs a very powerful punch.

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.

Update 1.2.2 Overview

Festive mapping and features

[​IMG][​IMG]

Jingle bells, batman smells, robin laid a.. Oh ops. Wrong speech.

It's that season of the year folks! We're really excited about spending the winter holidays with our players for the very first time. I am happy to announce that this is our first Christmas as a community so we're all super duper excited about what we've got cooking in the pipelines. This is only the start of a series of events.​
  • Double EXP Weekends on 28 - 29 Dec 2013, 4 - 5 Jan 2014 and 11 - 12 Jan 2014
  • 12 Days of Christmas on 26 Dec 2013 till 9 Jan 2014
  • New Year Site Update on 31 Dec 2013
From the moment you join the server, you'll notice that we're really in the festive spirit at Lawless with Christmas songs playing whilst you log in. There will be continuous snowing all over Los Santos however this detects your FPS and tackles any lag problems pre-hand. So if you don't see snow falling from the skies, this will be due to your FPS and the script making sure you don't lag.​
Additionally, our wonderful mapping department has worked together to really produce a very festive map customisation all over Los Santos. You'll find Christmas trees scattered around popular hang outs all over Los Santos. And as a very special addition, the Mayor of Los Santos has funded extra Christmas lights all over popular Los Santos places.

Each time you do this, you will enter the raffle. The more times you enter the raffle, the better your chances are at winning one of the top 20 prizes.

In between your present delivering tasks and shooting rival gang members. You could find a present which Santa has left for you.

There is a present that moves around San Andreas frequently - your objective is to find the present and answer the multiple choice question.

If you get the answer wrong, the present will be moved to another location. There's a possibility that the present will move back to a place where it already has been, so make sure you note where you saw the present, if you find it!

We're known as a community that experiments with unique, detailed and realistic jobs. We took it to the next level in our previous update with the fisher man job. Now we're back to raise the bar and really set the golden standard for roleplay jobs.

The new forklift job is not only rewarding however it has a simple complexity about it which makes the job very dynamic and every single time you deliver a crate, you will experience something different.

We've been playing around with all types of skills such as the fishing or robbing skill. However, we're ready to take it to the next level. The forklift job comes with it's own skill set that comes with an unravelling twist. As you do more deliveries, you gain more experience and work your way up the skill. This allows players to gain more money but it also allows people to get up to 30% extra materials whilst material running. Heaven for the gun dealers.
[​IMG][​IMG]
  • Level 1 Forklift Driving Skill: 0% extra materials and a paycheck ranging from $40-$55
  • Level 2 Forklift Driving Skill: 10% extra materials and a paycheck ranging from $80-$95
  • Level 3 Forklift Driving Skill: 15% extra materials and a paycheck ranging from $120-$135
  • Level 4 Forklift Driving Skill: 20% extra materials and a paycheck ranging from $160-$175
  • Level 5 Forklift Driving Skill: 30% extra materials and a paycheck ranging from $200-$215
If you have a lot of luck on your side, you could have level 5 forklifting driving skill within one hour but all it takes is a streak of bad luck and you'll be back to level 1. Your skill points will deteriorate with time and your luck.

But you may be thinking, so how is this dynamic?

If you are someone who has luck on their side, you could be delivering a crate that could give you a bonus of $10, 000 on top of your pay. This is determined by your skill in the job, your luck and most importantly your notoriety.

Secondly, if you're a lunatic (which most of you are), you could really get into trouble doing this job. If you crash your forklift a lot, there is a chance that you will damage items in the crate which will cost you some big bucks and could even get you fired from the job for life. So if you think you're lucky, you could ram another forklifter off the road which will cause them to get fired from the job.

* You can find out more about this job, in-game using /findjob and /jobhelp.

Tweaks and Adjustments

Administration
The most important adjustment is that the staff and administration team is undergoing a complete overhaul with new powers, departments and a much more organised approach to administrating the community. We want to provide every single person from banned to helper to admin - the very best experience they could have from a community. We now have three very simple departments which range from Public Affairs, Game Affairs and Community Affairs. Public Affairs handles the recruitment of new admins, technology, administrative requests, TeamSpeak and so forth. Game Affairs handles the most aspect to very day living for our guys in Los Santos, this includes management of factions, gangs and civilians. Community Affairs controls the helper teams, ban appeals, complaints and so forth.

I would like to on behalf of the entire Management team congratulate:
  • Robin on his appoint to Director of Public Affairs
  • Amri on his appoint to Director of Game Affairs
  • Vinay on his appoint to Director of Community Affairs

Community & Player Tweaks
Lilly, who is our Ban Appeals Manager recently asked the community on a poll "Do you think we should let everyone banned before Christmas be unbanned?" and you guys voted. A whooping 60.8% of you voted that everyone should be unbanned as a community gift to everyone.

I am honoured and proud to announce to welcome back everyone who has in the past done wrong. We hope to open a new chapter with you as a community.

Secondly, Vinay has recently opened up a competition for the Chief Designer position. All you have to do is design a logo for Lawless and post it on the thread. The best designer will be awarded the Chief Designer position.

From Lawless Roleplay

It simply makes more sense 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 1.2.1 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 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.

Changes:
  • Fixed a major issue with C.O.C.K. weapon hack false bans
  • Removed the old C.O.C.K. car-ram punishment system, instead it warns administrators

  • Fixed a bug with /deletehouse not removing the link between the player and house
  • Fixed a bug that allowed you to /accepthelp yourself

  • Fixed several bugs with /pickweed

  • Fixed a bug with tazer
  • Health and armor hack warnings are now more sensitive and are now logged onto hack.log
  • Fixed a bug with /loadtruck in a big rig now allowing players to deliver the goods
  • Brand new /calculate which works with decimals (Credits: Joey Tucker)
  • Fixed a bug with armor and health missing randomly when relogging or crashing
  • Fixed a bug where you had to be below level 5 to open the jail gates instead of above level 5
  • Fixed a minor issue with weed plants not disappearing
  • Fixed a bug where the turf timer would duplicate as a cause of several captures/ failed captures
  • Fixed several spelling and grammar mistakes
  • Fixed a problem with lock picks breaking even though you have a sonic screwdriver
  • /togphone now ends any incoming or active calls
  • Fixed a bug that if the police fail to /shutdown a turf for the first 15 seconds, the capper name will be the one from the police and not the gang
  • You now get automatically untied after you die
  • Level 25+ can now view their second job in /stats
