Announcement Happy New Year!
[​IMG]Lawless Roleplay would like to wish everybody a Happy New Year! We would like to thank all our community members for making the past year truly one of the best. I have personally enjoyed 2017 and cannot wait to see what 2018 brings. This year we hit 246 players online at the same time.

In 2017, we watched players die over 11,441,160 times, 471,990 crimes committed, 14,592 players banned from the server, 27,649 players who got muted/ prisoned/ jailed, 32,801 namechanges and a whooping 235,569 new accounts registered. What a year it has been!

Nevertheless, while 2017 was a great year for Lawless Roleplay, it has also been a very challenging year plagued with server issues and the infamous lag. As we enter 2018, one of our primary objectives is to ensure the server is as smooth as possible.

Remember that there are still winter events, competitions till 10th January 2018 and DOUBLE XP is active right now!!

May the new year bring more rewarding moments for us to share.

Christmas. A time for you to go back home and spend time with your loved ones. For all of us, Lawless Roleplay is our home in the San Andreas Multiplayer community. So we invite everyone to come back home and enjoy the festive season with us. Let's roll out the Christmas festive lights, atmosphere, awesome events, minigames, street parties and a hell load of fun! - But before we do that, let's take a moment to refresh our memory of Lawless Roleplay's mission statement.

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 player's actions and talents and not the whim of an administrative team. We have great code. We have the 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 1.3.71 Overview

Winter Events
[​IMG]
We're really excited about spending the winter holidays with our players because of what we've got cooking in the pipelines. This is only the start of a series of events. We have a very new addition to the winter update which is a series of events by our Community Relations Team. There are great competitions and even greater giveaways. From video competitions to singing competitions, there is an easy way for you to win some awesome stuff.

You can take part in the winter events by clicking here

And that's not the end of events, we will be having some awesome events such as:
  • Double EXP Weekends on 24 - 25 December 2017, 31 December - 1 January 2017 and 7 - 8 January 2018
  • Throughout December to January, there will be special events and gifts by the Community Relations team!
  • New Year Website Update
Winter Madness!
[​IMG]
Our Winter Wonderland is now open with special minigames that let you win crazy prizes. We'd be hosting contests, giveaways, and parties here so check it out often! This year we have some special new additions to get you into the winter festivities. We have our old maze, climbing, falling crate minigames open but with the addition of a new minigame designed to drop your jaws. We also have a special winter radio genre and a radio blasting some of the best winter songs in minigames and the winter park.

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. 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 hangouts 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.

Santa has had a crash!
[​IMG]
Santa Claus - poor old Santa Claus. Every god damn year, he doesn't learn. This year was no different - Santa's sleigh got hit by a wasp of AK-47 bullets whilst flying over Grove Street and has crash landed in Flint County! God damn it Santa! He needs your help to deliver as many gifts as you can. And as a reward, he promises to give the top 20 helpers very special presents! What you need to do is pick up a gift from his crash site and deliver it to Los Santos. 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 presents. The raffle results will be released on the 10th January.

Prizes:
  • 1x very special prize (announced on 10th January)
  • 2x House with an interior of choice
  • 3x Ivy for a month
  • 4x Custom cars
  • 5x Custom Phone Numbers
  • 5x Custom Forum Titles - [​IMG]
* So just go in-game and type /christmashelp to get started on helping Santa!

It's Winter in Los Santos!
[​IMG]
Let it snow! Oh.. let it snow baby.. Whilst it's not a white winter this year in many places, the gods of San Andreas have blessed us with snow. The Government has also used money seized from Max Mabbitt's retired gang empire to pay for mystical lights all around Los Santos which clearly means it will be night time throughout the winter festival! Oh yeah... this is the small print that only a few people will read. There is a pink easter egg in Los Santos. Find it and send a screenshot of it to me to get Ivy for life time. Only one winner so be quick.

Maze Minigame
[​IMG]
Which door to take.. The maze minigame tests your luck and instincts to see if you can survive through the harsh and cruel maze. We have new additions to this maze to make things exciting. You can earn up to 8 winter credits by completing this minigame (more on this below).

Climbing Minigame
[​IMG]
The climbing minigame was closed down last year due to safety fears however it's now open after the Government decided to hire some builders to fix the escalators! In this minigame, you need to climb several obsticals and reach the finishing line. You can earn up to 10 winter credits by completing this minigame (more on this below).

Falling Crates Minigame
[​IMG]
The falling crates minigame is a fun and challenging way to earn your Gift Shop coins! It requires 10 friends to start a round in which peices of the floor (crates) fall down and the surviving player wins. You can earn up to 14 winter credits by completing this minigame (more on this below).

Giftshop
[​IMG]
In every minigame and event, you can win Winter Credits which then can be used to spend on some awesome stuff.

Halloween!

We hope everyone had fun searching gifts around Los Santos, I personally think the competition was absurdly high between Jacob and Larry. Who were drilled to end up at the first place... However, we think everyone has enjoyed purchasing gifts from the halloween shop and has enjoyed participating in our special halloween events, organized by our community relations team.

Congratulations on behalf of the administrative team to all the winners! Thank you for participating!

Along with the halloween events, we have introduced a new dynamic weather system, which was suggested by the community. We're looking forward to hear your feedback about this new future.

Suggestions are being looked at and will always be taken into consideration.
Our current third party scripters are working on serveral projects which will defintely bring new exciting features to Lawless.

We assure you, that by the end of November there would be no issues of your reports not being answered or ignored.

We are looking forward to the upcoming period with you!

Volume 1 - September

Welcome to the first ever volume of the Community Newsletter.

The community newsletter is a monthly post by the management team highlighting our forecast for the upcoming month as well as reflecting on the previous month. This includes events, projects, goals and things we are currently working on. In our first volume we will be discussing the closure of NGG’s SA-MP server, double EXP, a special gang slot offer, inactive properties, SA-MP client update, launcher status and a personal announcement from Barney.

[​IMG]

Next Generation Gaming SA-MP Closure

While we do not normally comment on other communities, NGG’s SA-MP server has stood strong for a long time and deserves recognition. It was a community that was built as a conduit for many Grand Theft Auto lunatics scattered across the globe to enjoy themselves on.

While both NGG and Lawless Roleplay were two different gaming communities, both with different views and ideologies - we shared a common goal: to provide entertainment to the players. What many people do not understand is that despite many differences between the several different gaming communities abroad, we're all chasing after a common goal; to provide great times to all.

Thank you NGG. You've been wonderful. We want to personally thank the staff of NGG for assisting us in trying to create an immersive GTA:SA experience for all to enjoy. Furthermore, I want to personally thank all SA:MP players who are reading this right now. Whether you're from a Russian RP server, an ex-NGG player, or reading this from somewhere over the horizon, I want to thank you for the passion and interest that you have with Grand Theft Auto. Without the players, there's obviously no game.

To all NGG players: you're more than welcome to join our community. Just make sure you understand that we're much different from what you're used to (check out our mission statement below). Lawless Roleplay approaches a more traditional and default Grand Theft Auto-esque style, which involves harsh gameplay, lunacy, and overall an experience that you otherwise wouldn't find on a lovey-dovey server. All I can say is, once you enter the Lawless jungle, be prepared to rise to power...

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.

Double Experience Weekend!

Continuing the theme of welcoming NGG players and players from other communities. We know how difficult it is to move to a whole new community with nothing but just the clothes on your back. To make joining Lawless Roleplay less difficult, we are hosting a special double experience event for everyone. This double experience event is also extended to our existing loyal community members as well because without you.. we are nothing.

The Double XP weekend will start on Friday 29th September until Monday 2nd October.

We hope you enjoy the upcoming weekend and good luck grinding those job skills.

Gang Slot Offer

Lawless Roleplay has one of the most competitive, fun gang scenes and we want to make it even more competitive. Whether you are a new player or a long time Lawless lunatic, we want to offer you a chance to get a FREE gang slot if you meet the following criteria:
  • Have a group of at least 20 base members (or 10 members if moving from another server)
  • No level requirement for members or leaders
  • No experience requirement for leaders
  • No $300,000 gang initiation fee
To claim a gang slot, all you have to do is post a gang application over here. There is a helpful topic with instructions on what your gang application should contain however please ignore the $300, 000 gang initiation fee and any level or experience requirement.

But hurry! We currently have only 3 gang slots available and once they're gone.. they're gone!

[​IMG]

Inactive Properties

Lawless Roleplay is a consistently growing community and we have 100s of new registrations every day. This makes property and space come at a premium especially around the Los Santos area. Hence, a lot of players are unable to find houses, lands or businesses to purchase and it limits the player's growth.

Our current policy is to auction any house or business where the owner has not logged into Lawless Roleplay for over 3 months or 6 months for lands. We are changing this policy so if a land, house or business owner is not active for 2 months, it will be available for auction by our team. Use it or lose it is the motto here.

The procedure is when the owner of the land, business or house has not logged in for over 2 months, that property gets added to a list and will be available for the auction team to sell. The auction team will select the most inactive property owner first (ie. Someone's property who has not logged in for over 8 months will be auctioned before someone who hasn't logged in 2 months).

If you are interested in purchasing a property, check out the Dynasty 8 Real Estate Auctions and the Fund Raising Auctions. Properties in these auctions are sold quickly so be ready at a moment's notice!

[​IMG]

SA-MP Client Update 0.3.7-R2
An option client update SA-MP 0.3.7-R2 is now available on the Download Page.

The 0.3.7-R2 client addresses a problem with the server browser where it was vulnerable to an IP spoofing attack. Servers could send fake information coming from other servers if they could guess when the client was querying them.

[​IMG]

Launcher Status

The Lawless Roleplay Launcher Beta 2 has officially been closed. Thank you to everybody for participating and giving us feedback. We are currently working on Beta 3 and fixing all issues experienced in Beta 2. We look forward to releasing this in the near future.

Personal Letter from Barney

Looking back at Lawless Roleplay over the past year, we have been through some very difficult and some very successful periods. However, I have a confession to make. I have not been the best community owner and leader for you because of my continual inactivities.

You may know that having a full time demanding job, a growing family and other responsibilities really limits your time to manage a gaming community. I am sure that at times, many community members thought I had given up and quit. I am sorry and this is no longer the case. On the 15th September 2017, I renewed my oath to Lawless Roleplay and my team. Since then, I have been active daily working on server updates, improving the community, the staff team, listening to your problems and actively seeking a solution as well as reorganising the community back to our old gold standard. I have not quit. And the fire within me is stronger than ever. The storm is coming back.

Over the next few weeks and months, you will be seeing very radical changes at Lawless Roleplay. The direction of the server will be changing towards better quality and more fun gameplay. I am very excited of what is to come and with your help, I know we will be very successful.

Thank you to your unconditional loyalty to the Lawless Roleplay community and I promise you moving forward from today, you will be seeing a whole new era.
[​IMG]

When we first created Lawless Roleplay, we wanted it to be a server which was not about rules but instead about gameplay and fun. We did not want our players to have to memorise a huge guidebook about what they can or can’t do. Instead, we wanted most of our rules to be automatically enforced by the server script and to let players focus about having fun.

However, as time has gone by, department directors and players have suggested multiple rules and these were added. But they did not add any value to the server and made things confusing for everyone.

So today, I am proud to announce that all our server rules have been reviewed and adjusted by me and agreed upon with the Lawless Roleplay management team.

Please note: All rules and punishments listed are only guidelines. Punishments can be less or more severe and depends on the situation and discretion of the admin.

There is just too many changes to list them all but here are the main ones:
  • No member limit on gang/ factions
  • New hacking punishment rules
  • New deathmatch punishment rules
  • New revenge killing rules
  • Removal of 10 minute rule
  • There have been many rules also removed which are now enforced by the script (ie. Car parking, spawn killing etc)
  • Removed faction arrest procedure detaining in valid vehicle rules
Frequently Asked Questions

My account was terminated because of the old hack rules. Can I be unbanned?
We are willing to unban and undo any account terminations on a case by case. We strongly recommend that you post a ban appeal (even if your account has been terminated).

When are these rules valid?
Right now since this post.

What happened to the old rule clarification threads?
These were systematically reviewed and any topics with incorrect/ expired information have been removed from view.
