We have always been committed to our users by showing them how much we care about perfecting the world our user’s experience. In our journey to make Lawless Roleplay one of the biggest communities, the entire administrative team has been very busy to help foster a new player experience. We have been monitoring community feedback and we believe that the latest changes and game updates really addresses vital and key issues within the community. We are striving for success using your help by placing you in command.

Rules
A lot of community members have advised the administrative team that the game server is missing vital rules or that there is miscommunication between what’s allowed and what isn’t. We have created a brand new page on our site carefully detailing the game server rules.

In addition, we have also updated the forum rules and game server rules. It is your responsibility to keep up to date with our operational rules. We really hope that this clears the uncertainty around rules.

You may view the community rules via this link.

Forum warnings
The entire administrative team have been in the past month been under heavy fire from a huge group within the community. They have constantly protested against the hate speech posted by some members of the community. We will now actively enforce forum rules by issuing rule breakers warnings. The consequences are:
  • 2 Warnings – Your connection to the forum will be sub-standard
  • 4 Warnings – Temporary banned for one week
  • 6 Warnings – Temporary banned for two weeks
  • 8 Warnings – Banned until your warnings expire
  • 10 Warnings – Permanently banned

Update! Welcome back...
Hey guys,

Sorry about the elongated delay of getting the forums back on track. The main reason behind the delay was that our database was a huge 16.4GB! I spent a large portion of my day decreasing the database size to 300MB.

I hope you all enjoy the new forums, the web site design seems to be the same however I spent 16 hours on rescripting it from scratch to meet the new standard and requirements of our forum software. We are very proud of this achievement!

The list of new features includes:
  • New Editor, this is the thing you see before you post messages / threads. It's much better than the last one.
  • User Group Banners, despite how much I loved our old banners I made the templates I modified were reset and I don't feel like adding them back. Instead we have banners however I haven't enabled them yet
  • Forums Removed! I removed unneeded forums and cleaned everything up
  • Drafts! As you type your messages will be saved as drafts. Not really major but nice
  • New Smilies! If you click the smilies face on the redactor you can see all of them!
  • Plenty more features that I have no energy to describe after scripting for nearly 20 hours, click for the full feature list.

If you see any errors, report them here. :O

Hello fellow gangbangers, law enforcers & simple civilians (lolnosuchthing),

In light of recent events, Management has decided to change the way complaints are done for good. We don't want people posting a complaint on another player for petty things. Instead, we're going to be focusing on one main thing, harassment.

What do we mean by Harassment?

If Player A constantly harasses Player B by either cuffing and arresting him constantly, killing him countless of times and generally ruining a players gameplay, that is what we consider harassment. It must be something that singles out one player and targets him only. That's considered harassment because you're ruining that players gameplay. You're not allowed to keep harassing the player. If he does something to you, get creative and strike back. Once you've strike back, that should be the end of it. If the other player launches an attack, you do the same; Tit for Tat (British saying for eye for an eye).

So, how does this change complaints?

Complaints that don't match the above criteria will automatically be void. We want players to handle everything themselves in game with very little Admin intervention. We don't want to get involved in the game by prisoning a player when the other player could just do the same thing back to the other player in game. Violence is something we allow and encourage, hence, it being lawless. If a person kills you, go back and kill him for what he did to you. But don't constantly kill him for one mistake as that would be considered harassment. Take it as mentioned earlier, 'tit for tat' like; One kill for another.

Why this sudden change?

We've noticed an increase in invalid complaints and we want to do something about it. Some complaints can easily be handled in game, but players would rather see the person behind bars in an OOC Jail rather than approach, interact and handle it themselves in game. We're playing GTA, not flower simulation. We encourage players to induce violence, but not so much that it turns into harassment to target one player and making them quit.

But... my tears just keep flowing!

This is Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, one of the most dangerous games in terms of multi player. You'll have gangs fighting, players killing each other and factions enforcing the law by brutal force. If you cannot handle dying in a game or if you cannot get creative enough to tackle the other player for their abuse against you, I recommend playing a truck simulator. The moment you sign up for a gang or decide to become a cop, is the moment you have no control over your own life. Expect to be indulged in lots of drive bys and shoot-outs.

What about the server offenses, how will they be regulated? :mad:

Calm down love! We'll still monitor irregular behavior that admins see fit in game. However, we're going to try and stay out of it most of the time. Hopefully, to increase the creativity. This doesn't mean you can go around deathmatching or breaking rules stated on the server offenses list, it just means that we'll be monitoring it and it will all be handled in game now rather than through the means of complaints.

Player Complaints on the following only are accepted:

- Logging to avoid Death/Arrest/Hit (Not tabbing, /report in game for that).
- Charge Stacking by Faction Members
- Exploits (Any form of exploits that will ruin the gameplay. (CS/QS/C-SLIDE, ANIM ABUSE)
- Harassment

What do we hope will happen?

We hope these changes will allow players to get creative in game rather that through the means of /report. Admins shouldn't be handling things that involve a player killing you once, or another doing the same. If they do it for no reason, gather an army and kill him. This should send a clear message out that you're not a person to be fucked with. Don't have an army? make an ad or go underground and start paying people for it. Don't have money? start working. If a player planebombs you, wait in the airport and just when he hits the ramp into the airport, kill him; Simple things.

We want to ensure the gameplay is as fun as possible, without the odd few attempting to ruin it.

Howdy outlaws, Shock here with a small announcement.​
The server is currently down due to security features being installed on our host, which was why the server unexpectedly went down.​
This upgrade will most likely not take more than an hour, however in the mean time you can check out our facebook page for an upcoming​
special event!​
We thank you for your patience, and we will be up and running as soon as possible with our​
improved security.​

Fellow comrades and lawless rebels,

This is your commander and chief Barney Phife speaking, I have a dream to invade the... oh crap! Wrong speech - sorry about that!


Dear warlords of Lawless Roleplay,

As you might of noticed the forums were attacked by an individual who decided to delete your topics, posts and private messages. We see this attack as an attack against members of our community. Some people in this world like to invade other people's fun for their own personal agendas.

We have restored to a stable point and have implemented new security features to help us prevent these types of attacks.

We noticed that many users received counterfeit e-mails - these e-mails were not authorized by the admins of Lawless Roleplay and it was an attempt by the individual to hurt our standing.

However, today alone, our Facebook page has received 40 new likes and our server population increased significantly. We thank you for your support, trust and loyalty.

We have always been thankful to those who attempt to test our security, not only does it teach our team to have a better security culture - it also allows us to investigate and research loopholes and prevent them.

Your Security
At Lawless Roleplay, we take pride that we monitor and uphold the highest level of security we can provide for our members. No user data or information was compromised. We do still recommend that you change your passwords - just to be on the safe side of the river.

We also have unbanned everyone from the server due to popular demand by members who played this server within the first month of release and made mistakes. We hope this act of generosity helps strengthen the core of the community.

Server Update
We have deployed a new server update that comes exclusively bundled with our new tool against health and armour hackers. The new system works elegantly by monitoring user activity and packet modifications - it detects the issue at the heart and alerts the corresponding admins. We hope our new advanced system helps administrators to kick out the bad seeds in the community. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Sam Schneider for his efforts to help test the system thoroughly.

We are still monitoring this system and gathering information before we make it automated.

*Note: Thanks to everyone who supported us during this bump. Our Facebook account was used heavily to update everyone so I strong advice you to like it so you are always up to date regarding community news!

At Lawless Roleplay, our commitment to our users shows how much we care about perfecting the world our member’s experience. In this journey to make Lawless Rolepay one of the biggest communities in regards to population, services and content – we strive to put the player in command of the world. One of our methods in putting the player in control is by listening to the community’s demand to update the script with content that enriches their experience. We look and listen at problems or bumps our members may experience and we work extremely hard to plug the holes to create a smooth experience for our entire community.

We are proud to release update version 1.1.1 to our community. This release was entirely moulded by the community and we are very humbled at the stage we’re at as a community. We are moving towards a direction that truly puts you in command and removes all limits that you may experience.

Raffle prize winner: Alex Tookie

We would like to congratulate Alex Tookie on winning a FREE land. This is a really well deserved win with over 600 entries. The land system is a new feature exclusively available to Lawless Roleplay. The land system allows players to build actual buildings and place furniture as they wish. This allows players to build skyscrapers, castles, shops, houses and whatever the landlord's imagination may take them. The following video showcases the possibilities:




Treasure hunt season
[​IMG]
The community demanded the treasure hunt event after our initial event on release did not work as intended. The all new treasure hunt event comes packed with new questions and locations!

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

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

If you get the correct answer, you'll be given a choice of the following prizes:
  • 50 pot, 25 crack and 25 chemicals
  • 2,500 materials
  • Deagle, shotgun and AK-47
  • 2 respect points
The treasure can be found multiple times, so don't be discouraged if someone finds it before you.

*Note: The treasure hunt event will continue until THURSDAY 13 JUNE 2013.




Features
  • Advertisements
We realised there is a lack of player interaction regarding selling weapons, drugs, vehicles and so on. We noticed that players would rather just use the global chat as they would not prefer to drive to an advertisement store. We have decided to restructure the advertisement system to allow players to advertise their needs or services anywhere (the cost of advertisements will go to the nearest business). This does also trigger the removal of the drama filled global chat.​
  • Quiz System
The administration team realised how much our players enjoy their quiz events to the point they requested the development team to assist them. Admins can now set a question and answer - players can answer the question and the first one to get the answer right will automatically be rewarded.​
  • Drug Smuggling pay
When we released the ability to smuggle chemicals, the community requested the pay to be increased due to the fact of the large distance you must travel in order to smuggle chemicals. We have adjusted the pay to the following​
Level 1: $300​
Level 2: $400​
Level 3: $500​
Level 4: $600​
Level 5: $700​
  • Lumberjack pay
Just like the drug smuggler job, the community really enjoyed this job but they felt that the pay was not large enough to correlate with the effort required of the player. We have increased the pay of the Lumberjack job to be in parallel with it's counterpart.​
Quality wood: $200-300​
Decent wood: $100-300​
  • Faction clothing
The factions within the server has been extremely busy in restructuring themselves to meet their new requirements as a faction. The LSFMD, LSPD and FBI now have two sets of clothing, one being their official on duty uniform and the other being their normal civilian clothing. We have also adjusted access to armor and weapons for several factions to allow fair play between factions and gangs.​
  • Taxi Job
This is one of the jobs that has disappeared into the abyss. This is primarily due to the poor scripting and availability of the job. This update revives the taxi job by allowing players to boardcast their services and the new ability to become a private driver. You unlock the private driver perk at level 8 which gives you the ability to be a taxi driver in any vehicle and allows you to place a taxi callsign ontop of your vehicle.​

Bug Fixes
  • Several bug fixes with lands confusing player building objects
  • Skin restrictions are effective when using /buyskin
  • Adjusted G'D up and Power 181.1 FM radio stations
  • Fixed several exploits with /dropgun, /grabgun and bombs
  • Adjusted the method toys work (users may experience issues with toy slot 7 and 8)
  • Chemicals on the player or inside a player's trunk will now save
  • The issue with /find not working when a gang owns the Market turf is now fixed
  • The issue with turfs becoming inverse is now fixed
  • The trucker job is now functional for everyone
  • Increased bank robbery money to $20, 000 per robber
  • Addressed several issues within administrative commands

*Note: This release of Lawless Roleplay 1.1.1 follows our principle that third-point (x.x.X) releases should always be more stable than the preceding version, so for the most part you will not find new features in 1.1.1. Major new features will be reserved for second point versions (x.X.x).
