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).

Whoa! What a fun filled couple of days has it been? We hit over 110 players daily - nailing an all time high of 149 players after one month! We have so many changes planned in the pipeline – all thanks to you! We really enjoy listening to our players! We have changed a large prospect of how we operate to be more player orientated.

We have gathered three top questions asked by most new players and our old consultant Citizen Alpha answered them for you.

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.

The new team
We have recently merged with another community called Suck My Network (LOL!) to make sure that we become the best in this genre of server. SMN runs a middle roleplay server which thrives in the OC and NA timezones, all their players have transferred over and both sides of the river are loving the gameplay.

This merge really allows us to display how diverse our server is. A lot of previous players had issues with deathmatch and with these issues almost gone - players can live their life's in utter freedom. This allows players to roleplay to any extent without the fear of being the one with the short stick. A mature community that is diverse and unique... oh how this lawless life is perfect.

Social! Stay connected...
At Lawless, we love talking, wherever you go in our community, you will find out that every single member is a chatter box. So we want to advance the social aspects and enhance the community's communication, allowing players to branch out and always keep in contact. To make things more interesting, we will be doing different giveaways on each of our platforms, from free businesses to a free car! We have so much stuff planned for you down the pipeline, it's amazing..

Be sure to like our videos and subscribe the channel to get more sneak peaks at new features coming to the server! We'll upload a sneak peak of the NEXT upcoming update.. Click the image to view the YouTube channel!

Version 1.1 Update!
Version 1.1 brings something that no other server can offer you. It breaks open the restrictions and limits in SA-MP and the script truly unleashes it's lawless side. This was the biggest project that the team have ever worked on, with the mapping team, beta team, senior player team, developer team and administrative teams working together to assure that this lawless update is flawless - so I hope that nurse skill comes handy.

Picklocks
Players can now break into other player's vehicles by purchasing a set of pick lock tools from any 24/7. You can now break into locked vehicles and go wild - but be careful as this also alerts the LSPD if the vehicle has an alarm system installed.

The lock system has been re-made - the alarm lock is now both an industrial lock and will alert the LSPD when someone breaks into it whilst the industrial lock remains untouched.

Lumberjack Job and Miner Job
These two jobs brings a new dimension into our server, one of our unique features that no other server can offer you. Here is a video demonstrating these two new interactive jobs:


Payphones
That's right! We've added payphones due to popular demand from the community. Calling anyone using a payphone allows full anonymity. This is a big hit for notorious players and hitman as it allows them to hide from the public and remain undetected in society.

Dropping and picking up guns
[​IMG]

You can now physically drop your gun onto the ground and someone else can pick up. This brings a new dimension to the level of detail to the script and truly encourages new levels of roleplay. Dropped weapons will remain there forever until the server restarts or somebody picks it up.

The Chemist
[​IMG]

There is a new addition to the drug smuggler and drug dealer jobs. You can now smuggle chemicals and help refill the stock room of the chemical laboratory so drug dealers can purchase chemicals. Chemicals can be purchased from drug dealers. Chemicals doubles the effect of cocaine and weed and can only be used after the first 5 seconds of taking the substance.

The super duper effects of taking random chemicals really shows when you have the drug addict perk. Be careful though, if you take it too fast or too often, chances are that you will overdose!

Basketball
[​IMG]

The basketball system is open to all players and is made up of two teams! You can join a game and pass the ball around, shoot, dunk, defend and even do skills!

This really slaps another dimension into the server as gangs are giving more fun things to do in their spare time apart from claiming turfs and rampaging the lawless streets of Los Santos.

Taking guns to another level...
[​IMG]

Your weapons now attach to your body just like the CLEO holster mod! This helps encourage more roleplay to the server as things such as asspulling and unpredictable fights are a thing of the past!

You can now see the weapons the player is carrying and as an added bonus, each time they swap weapons, a small message will be shown on top of their heads. Just another way that our system encourages and enforces roleplay.

Prison Escape
[​IMG]
When notorious players get sent to prison by the F.B.I., they'll land in an unpleasant prison with a huge fine and plenty of time to ponder over their actions. We found out that quiet often, players get bored of spending hours upon hours in prison with no chance of freedom or interaction with other players. The new prison system allows gang members to break into the prison cells and to break out their buddies! The police will have to respond and stop the baddies from escaping!

Careful though! The police get alerted when the prison cells opens and you'll need to have 10 police officers online.

Points to Turfs
[​IMG]

The point system created a very confusing set of server rules and gameplay. Points were OOC but had implications in the IC field - makes no sense!

Points are now known as turfs and all the old points commands redirect to the turf commands. Turfs last for 48 hours and police have the ability to shut down turfs to receive payment bonuses. Turfs do still pay gangs the same amount of money as before!

We decided to convert the point system into turfs for many reasons. The first one is that turfs was updated code from 2013 which used the general standard coding for this day and age whereas the points system was from 2008! The biggest advantage for administrators is that turfs can be created with a single command in-game.

And the fact that turfs are now opened to both gangs and factions - it really allows strategic gameplay and we look forward to the many deals made between factions and gangs to claim turfs.

Misc
There has been several bug fixes and new increased security in the script. I would like to personally thank all the hackers for helping us gain the data to increase the security of our script.

The lawless... land system
Now this is the big bombshell that we decided to leave to the very end. This new feature will redefine SA-MP and our server in every single way you can imagine!

The land system allows players to actually own a piece of land and build whatever you like on the land! And I mean anything! You can buy objects and place it on your land - you can create your own house, office, skyscrapper or gang HQ or faction HQ or anything you can imagine. I don't want to write a book on the entire system so allow me to let this video speak for itself...

FREE LAND?! WHERE!
[​IMG]

So.. this is what the team has been up to the past week. Pretty amazing right? But hold on! The fun doesn't stop here! No! We are celebrating this huge milestone for the community by running raffles in-game and allowing players to have the ability to WIN THEIR OWN PRIVATE LAND!

You join the raffle by going to the big buddah at spawn (the first place you spawn at when you sign up to the community). You will need at least 8 playing hours and $2000. You can buy unlimited amounts of tickets however the more tickets you have, the better your chances at actually winning!

Good luck comrades!

I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank all the beta testers, senior players, members of administration, mappers, developers and everyone involved with this update on behalf of us - the players.

So join us and rise to power! It's time the lunatics prospered...
Administrative Changes

The administration team has been working hard on a new system that ensures players are fully satisfied with their interactions with the administrative team.

We have decided that senior players, developers and mappers are members of the staff team – this opens our spectrum of assistance during decision making. It also allows leaders within the different departments to show their skill and then slowly rise through the ladder - this closes the gap between administration and normal players. After all, this is a server made by players for players.

Another new department is the senior and junior staff positions. Senior staffs are people who normally run big teams of people and projects whereas staff members are administrative members of said projects. The difference between staff and administrators is that staff members run projects and have more in-game access than their official access levels. For example, Gerdeman is considered a level 3 administrator but yet has level 4 admin in-game to be able to fulfil his duties.

This allows players to get the best quality of interaction with administrators and staff members. It also acts as a huge thank you to those who work tirelessly in maintaining and helping the server grow by giving them recognition.

This is just one of the few steps we take at Lawless Roleplay to support you - the players...

View the new administrative roster here.

Helper Manager Position

A new job position is now available to all current senior players called – Senior Player Manager. This position entitles the manager to recruit, maintain and assist the senior players. If you are interested in this position then please send me a private message describing how you will change the senior player team, why we should pick you and general information such as time zone and age. There is no format so take this as a challenge to your creativity!

friday is big update day
It has truly been an amazing month for us at Lawless and I can tell you from a behind the scenes prospective that we have so many new and exciting features coming soon! In terms of the script and community wide events! Stay tuned as more details are released.

New Forums
As many of you may know, we have changed the forum software from IPB to a new one called XenForo. The main reason behind this was due to the countless bugs IPB came bundled with. These bugs included banning people randomly, moving people into random user groups – that really chased us away. We shopped around for different forum software and we landed on XenForo which we believe provide us with the functionality to make your experience the best it can be.

With the addition of a new forum software, we have also recruited Gerdeman into our ranks as our in house technician and expert web developer. Gerdeman has in the past few years worked for many clients by creating them amazing websites - one of his traits is the ability to create forum plugins for XenForo. He is also a talented SA:MP developer so we will be seeing a lot of him!

I don't want to give too much away but you will soon see some major site changes.

Script Updates
The scripting team now has nine members. At Lawless, one of our unique features is our thirst for creativity in everything we do. We give full freedom to our scripters to script anything they think is a good idea. Once they have finished scripting it, they present it to the Director of Development for approval and this truly allows our scripters to explore their creative side without being locked down. Being a scripter myself, I know that giving scripters freedom to script whatever they like is very important because scripters are just like artists and their creativity cannot be constrained else you get a big pile of you know what.

[​IMG]
Recently, one of our new additions to the scripting team, Kevin Hawk, contacted me with a new idea of allowing players to purchase pieces of land and having the ability to build actual buildings on it with functional doors, windows and elevators. At first my reaction was whoa that is insane! Imagine all the possible buildings players can create – skyscrapers touching the moon, houses with secret passages… the possibilities are endless. And as a bonus creating buildings is so easy, it’s a matter of buying the object whether it is a wall, a chair, a TV or a painting and just placing it wherever you like. The editing is so easy and you see it live as you are editing it. It’s insane! Click here to view some screenshots.

Donations
The donation system is now back with updated prices and products. We listened to the community feedback regarding donations and we acted on them. Some of these changes include:
  • Houses are now $20 instead of $30
  • Dynamic Doors are now $10 instead of $15
  • You now get a 10% when purchasing Rose or Daisy for 3 months
  • And many more price changes!
However, I was really surprised by how many people requested the ability to donate for NRG-500, Infernus and businesses.

We have two business tiers, tier one comes with 200 free products and include the following businesses; Nightclub, Burger Shot, Cluckin' Bell, Pizza Stack, Sex Store, Restaurant or a Gym.

Whereas tier two includes 500 products and a 24/7, Gun Store, Clothes Store or an Advertisement Store.

The rose dealership now has access to buy an Infernus for $600, 000 – alternatively this is also available in the tier two custom vehicle pack. You can now also purchase a NRG-500 for $15.

To see the new donation site then please click here.

Unfortunately for those who have donated already, you cannot swap your vehicles.

Please keeping sending me feedback on the donation system via private message.
Greetings outlawz.

It's been a good start for us, and to celebrate we are happy to announce Double EXP and Treasure Hunt for the next week!

For those who don't know about Treasure Hunts, a package is randomly placed somewhere in LS (inside and in countys). The package looks like a drug package, and has a yellow label. Once you reach the package, you have to answer a random question. If you answer wrong on the question, the package will move to another location. Treasure hunt will be available from Monday to Thursday.

One week update


I didn’t really know what to call this update – I think my creative juice with names is slowly running out and soon we might just give numbers to updates. Anyway, we have been open for about 9 days now – what an amazing 9 days! Once we managed to fight the DDoS attacks, we hit a peak of 130 players on day one – do you know what that signifies? One hundred and thirty! That is huge for a start-up server.

Although, many have been misled by our start up figure to thinking this is a permanent number. You must understand people will join from elsewhere just to check it out – people will hack and get banned, people will leave because they don’t like the style of gameplay and most importantly people just wanted to sniff the air and kick tyres around.

But don’t let that pull you down because the following numbers is what is significant. We now peak at around 70-80 players. All these people left their previous communities, positions elsewhere just to move here and play – they’ve given up their account stats such playing hours, money and respect just to play here. This is really humbling to me and the entire administration team to know that on average we have 300 regular players per day – this is a staggering number to know all these people have quit other places just to be here. I’m speechless – thank you for helping me create the dreamland of a server.

Moving on, the latest update brings a lot of new and cool features. This update was primarily made by Josh Slice who is our new director of scripting. Josh is a very old player and has constantly proven that he strives for the best results in terms of scripting. He is also a level 3 administrator so make sure you bug him to create some whacky events!

[​IMG]


First up on the menu is the trucker job – it has been completely restructured and is now made up of 10 SKILL LEVELS! Skill level 1-5 is the normal old boring job however skill level 5-10 upgrades your trucking potential to master trucker and allows you drive huge trucks with trailers. This allows store owners to gain up to 12 products per run and truck drivers $1, 000 per run!

[​IMG]

We now have player accessible craftable boms! First you need the crafts man job, GPS, watch, a receiver and 16500 materials. Once you have all of the requirements, you craft your bomb and blow shit up! There are a few phrases that you can also say that will blow up the bomb too – real suicide.

[​IMG]

The job system has been completely restructured, legal jobs are no longer cash-in-hand but now you get the money during payday. These legal jobs include lawyer, garbage man, car mechanic, taxi driver and trucker. However, illegal jobs are still cash-in-hand style.

[​IMG]

We also now have a dynamic weather system which adds so much character to the game. If your computer is from 1953 then you can simply type ‘/togweather’. I guess a storm is real close then…

We even have huge bug fixes and minor changes such as gang vehicle mods now save and the gang lock price is now $10, 000. The notoriety system has become more wise and understanding. New hospital spawns positions. /sellgun now has a price option. /buyskin is back for those who cannot view the fancy menu. The old style /vlock is now back for temporary vehicle locks. The fun house for donators is now in-game. Donations now expire automatically.

Donations


As everybody knows, servers cost a lot of money and instead of boring you with excuses and sweet nothings to attempt to mask up what’s going on. I'm going to be straight with you – none of us are millionaires and we did plan donations with the opening of the server so there were no lies or dereference of trust. We’re not going to use donation money to fund our e-dates, new mobile phones, holiday trips or VPNs. Instead we’re going to use this money to better our services – such as the multi-point of presence for lower ping or better software and technology. In the future we do plan to pay coders and mappers for their work because I know how hard it is and sometimes you just need a little motivation – a little push to get something done.

The first month I've spent around $657.99 because I had to buy software licenses, forum software, forum plugins and etc. We wish to overcome this amount and get payments for next month sorted out so we can save up for specialized software which costs $200 and will help admins manage the server more efficiently - IE. they can solve server issues without me being online.

I've spent $657.99 and have received $473.64 from donations which means we’re in debt by $184.35 – next month’s bill will be $363. Fear not – I will continue paying even if nobody donates! We’re not going anywhere, ever.

I set up a lovely store for everybody to purchase items with the added ability to gift money directly to other people as I know the majority of users love doing this - check out the gift voucher on the left hand side. All the donation perks and other bits were discussed publicly and the vast majority of people loved it.
