At Lawless Roleplay, we want to provide our users with the very best possible experience. With the new 0.8.73, we have introduced a whole new system for players to use weapons and interact. Hackers and exploiters have forever changed the way we play. Until now, these hacks are very easily detected. With the 0.8.73 update, we are introducing several entirely new modules into C.O.C.K. (Coded Observation Cheat K-Liner) and a whole new system of shooting and fighting. This will bring a new dimension into the way you play on Lawless Roleplay. 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 0.8.73 Overview We've always been a community ran by players for the players. We fuel many of our goals and aspirations from the ideas of players. Sync-shooting has been a forever long request of many members within the community. We were one of the very few servers still operating a lag shooting based community, however, we have looked into the system and came to the conclusion that lag-shooting is exploitable in many ways that is impossible to prevent with SA-MP's scripting methods. With sync-shoot, we can. The procedure to adding sync-shoot was not a simple one. We first removed every single line of code that had anything to do with detecting health, armor or weapon hacks so we can start with a fresh clean canvas. We then looked at all of the issues and concerns from the players. We worked with these players to create very complex and comprehensive detection method to eliminate player concerns regarding third-party cheats/modifications. We then looked at the far-too-easy killing nature of sync-shooting and created our own sync-shoot damage system. Damage from weapons now depend on several factors such as the player's movement, angle, the weather (rain or wind), the body part hit, the distance, luck, and the weapon used. This introduces a new dimension of tactical play. Players will now need to consider their position, cover and where they should be aiming. Our in-house coded observation cheat K-Liner has received an upgrade that is hard-coded in a way to now analyse every single detail by looking deeply into packets sent by the player. This is used to detect cheats in a deep way that tracks a player's habits and other useful information. The information is then used to assist admins in cleansing the server of parasitic cheaters. We've always been committed to making this server a place where everyone is welcomed. We understand that many people make the wrong decisions and with the new C.O.C.K. system, we can finally set players back on the right path. We are very strong believers of second chances and fresh starts. We want to offer every single person banned before 19th September 2015 an unban, this includes all permanent and temporary bans. We have bit the bullet and unbanned every single IP that was ever banned. The banned accounts remain banned and if you would like to unlock your old account, all you have to do is post a ban appeal and wait patiently for an unban. This is just so we can ensure that no exploited or spoofed accounts get active again. If you are banned or know someone that is banned then they will need to post a ban appeal so we can unban them.
