I am the captain now...

We have a whole lot going on this week with lovely new skins being introduced, some new features and some changes. This weeks text wont be as long but i wilt briefly go over some of the more pressing changes, first off the removal of Rebel cars was due to it being a left over item from the UNMC and the Thinking animation was removed due to it being an older animation that was not working properly. The other addition that may seem complex is the high security period where the Athira bank and fuel station cannot be robbed this is in an effort to allow some time for police to gear up before having to respond straight away.

HMS Insurgent

The HMS Insurgent was a British air carrier stationed in the gulf of Pyrgos originally named the HMS Freedom. When a hurricane destined for Tanoa went of course it ravaged Altis and caused the HMS Freedom to become beached on a slit of land, the rebels of Altis took this time to jump upon it and slaughtered the crew and raided its contents. After multiple attempts of recovery the HMS Freedom was deemed a lost cause and stood abandoned since. 

The owners of the Continental have now taken ownership of the boat and renaming it to HMS Insurgent, they are looking for a group to rent this ship out to, however it will not be cheap.

The HMS Insurgent interaction point is the Green Cargo hut, furthermore we are looking for suggestions on unique upgrades for the HMS Insurgent, so if you have any please post them in suggestions!

Money Runs the World

Two projects that have been being worked on come to competition this week and some other small changes and fixes are in the update. With a small quality of life feature being added the ability to turn off Taxi/Arac notifications you no longer have to get the Ding of a notification only to realise it is someone wanting a ride. The nightclub smokes and lights have also been converted from the event license to a new system, this is to help with events. Finally we have some various fixes across the board, bit of a small one this week but further projects are being worked on for next week!

~ Chirst

Banking System

With the new banking system you can choose what bank you want to be part of, currently these are either Kavala, Agios or Athira.

Each bank offers its own negatives and positives, such as pre-paid cards or paycheck increases.

The default bank is Kavala bank, further expansions on this system may come at a later date (Such as additional banks).

Deduction System

The new deduction system is something implemented to help drain some of the money out of the server in a more fair way.

Whenever the bank you are with is robbed you may lose a percentage of what is stored in your bank if you are online at the time, however if you are part of the group robbing this bank you will not lose any money. Furthermore when the HM is robbed up to 5 percent can be lost from your bank. With this system there are ways for people who are creative to avoid the deduction to their account, while fulfilling the goal of helping to drain some money from the server.

Changes to the Deduction System

Like everyone we can get stuff wrong and this is a case where we may have, the changes coming in tonight are to fix some of these. First of all the RBA Treasury reduction system will return but alongside it will come a type of insurance system or something similar. Medics will no longer be affected by the deduction system as well as on duty admins as they have no means to stop it. Finally the additional requirement for cops will make robbing the banks slightly harder alongside the message of a robbery giving people a chance to respond if there bank is being robbed. Some more changes may be made such as Offshore accounts, private money storage's etc as time goes on.

Altis Buses still more reliable than TFL

We have mostly small changes this week as people work on larger projects, however the shining star of the update is the bus system, to do this grab a license, marshal costume and an black IDAP cap alongside your transport van and start at the nearest bus stop. Also coming in this update is some additionally attachments to multiple weapon stores and some further optimisation and fixes on some scripts. Finally we have the change to the RBA Treasury which now requires 15 cops this is to help stagger out the robberies and when they start to become available.

Balance Pass Part 1

Most of this week has been dedicated to doing a balance pass on the jobs and shifting the viability of some around, the main goal of this balance was to bring the high end jobs down while balancing the mid end. During the job balance pass we also decided to take a look at the weapon prices and there has been a lot of adjustment to many of the weapons, the goal of this is to make the high end weaponry slightly more expensive and thus more risky to take. As with all balance passes this may not be final and some prices may further change as need be. In other events the AR tiers have been added this will help them TFOs access their weapons when needed, we also the old AR Uniform back. As said before the content this week is lacking and that is due to the hard-work put into the balance pass and the time that takes, expect more content next week.

But Muh Money

So lots of changes this week with one of the biggest change ups a lot of the changes speak for themselves and i have wrote a lot already so wont go into detail but with the new faction there will be a shift in the balance of the server this will be adjusted as needed in the coming weeks additionally NHS have some larger content coming next week and with the focus going on the introduction of the new faction that is why NHS lack anything this week.

~ Chirst

Capture System

With the new capture system each capture area has a redzone around it, as indicated on the map. Instead of getting money every time someone buys something from advanced weapon, blackmarket etc, every 30 minutes 750,000 will be put into the Location vault as well as this the system to rent a drone, xian and strider are still present. All capture zones are now in the new rebel area.

Casino Robbery

The casino robbery is very similar to the HM it provides Platinum bars instead of gold bars which can be sold at the Platinum Buyer currently they have the same price as gold bars do. To do the casino robbery you must go to the top floor of the Continental with a blasting charge and place it however beware some server rules apply so check the rules section first.

Poseidon Drugs

The drug trade is big for Poseidon and one of the unique tasks it can do are place High Grade drug fields, once a trade or military pass is required you will be able to see the drug field processor and dealer on the map if they have been placed by Poseidon. There are certain restrictions to the placements of these, such as you cannot put a dealer next to a processor, processor next to a field and so on. Next week a system will come which will allow police to shut down these drug locations if they find them.

Small Stuff

Only a small update this week as a lot of the game team has been consumed with real life, hopefully things should be back to normal next week. Coming up this week we have some fixes to some scripting errors which will hopefully speed up the server a tiny bit, we also have a small fix to a typo error on the loading screen. Some minor Poseidon stuff have been added with a keybind to open Poseidon gates being added, the hexes and a small area where money was not received has also been fixed. Finally the larger addition this week is Pyrgos Hospital with the increased activity round Pyrgos a small consultant area has been put in place by the Government in cooperation with the Cartel.

The ANPR now once again displays the wanted status of individuals when scanned. With the main focus this week being on improving some backend functions and script optimisations we only had time for some smaller stuff expect larger projects coming next week.

LSD has been disabled at the Multi drug processor to make it a bit less profitable and professions have been added for the High Grade drugs. A big part of our current focus has been optimisation and back-end work in this update and as such visible content is much less present, we hope to see an improvement in performance and security with this update.

This update we have several additions, changes and fixes, on my front with me being busy IRL i have managed to get in a new additon in the form of a drug stash owned by Poseidon allows people to strike back at Poseidon in another fashion. There has also been some small price changes to diversify the jobs done and make thess paticular jobs slightly less lucrative. Jaffa has been focused on security, optimisation and improving the admin tools, alongside that he has changed earplugs to be able to be put in/out when performing actions. Science has another addition for ARAC with roadside garages, there is also the addition of the tracker upgrade allowing an individual to upgrade their vehicle with a tracker. MrKraken has overhauled several skins as well as some new addition for Police and Poseidon and finally TBJ has fixed a small issue related to going into a negative balance in the bank. Coming in next update we have some spooky stuff!

Squashing Biters

Yeah, we planned to do our Halloween update next, but it has come to our attention that certain individuals were doing naughty things in the Auction House, and we simply had to stop it as soon as we had a fix. I fixed it a couple of days ago (as soon as I heard about the problem first-hand), and it's been waiting in the pipeline while we prepared other features for Halloween... but needs must, and so to stop other people getting banned for giving into temptation, I've taken the executive decision to release this fix (and its associated other work that was in the pipeline at the time) out to our community today. Hopefully our Halloween update will be fairly soon after...

Fear not - the things that go bump in the night, are probably more likely to be the police knocking down your door to recover those stolen heaps of cash and gold, rather than the zombie hordes. But are you prepared for the invasion of the body-snatchers? Rumour has it, they are out there... silently adopting everyday roles, hiding in plain sight, and sneakily waiting for that moment they can spring their trap upon you? Beware the dangers that lurk under the covers. Stay clear of vans offering free Marmite. And never, ever, feed a developer after midnight.

Happy Halloween update!
