News & Information / Update 1.2.0 Official Announcement

Update 1.2.0 Official Announcement



Hey there and welcome to the official 1.2.0 announcement. Some of you may have already been notified that we're cancelling the Fire Department update due to the lack of fire sync from the side of MTA:SA, however, today we're quite happy to announce that the upcoming 1.2 update is fully aimed towards the Fire Department!


Fire Department

Unlike the initial plan, the Fire Department itself will not come as a third branch, instead, it'll merge with the medical branch itself. Why? Well, with the Fire Department we've decided that it'd be best that we focus on the way LAFD itself works which has both medical and firefighters under one wing. Due to this decision we will change all of the rank to firefighter ones and add ability to spawn as either medic or firefighter under the medic branch. That also means that the medics itself will be renamed to Fire Department and all of the callouts will be under one branch.


Fire system and sync

We're sure that the first line of the text on this thread has got you wondering how we managed to overcome the sync issues. The answer is simple, we simply wrote our own fire system which is nowhere near perfect but it also does it's job. The advantage to this is us being able to produce a lot of smoke into the fire itself which adds to the realism as well as the ability for us to update the fire system itself whenever we feel the need to as it's not connected to the game's engine.

Each fire has three effects before it's extinguished, large, medium, small, once you extinguish it you will receive 1 experience point as a reward. Do note that each callout has around 30-40 fires to extinguish which means that alongside the callout experience bonus this branch should no longer feel like a major grind anymore.

The system itself also has a custom made sync which we've already tested with the staff team on the main server and has proved to work perfectly which gave us the green light on the Fire Department system.


Other changes

In addition to the already stated changes we're happy to also announce that all of the spawn points for the medic will be changed as well. They will be moved on towards custom made Fire Department maps created for us by @Redziczektaki that resemble IRL fire stations with multiple garage entrances. Each map itself will feature a simple gate system that opens the garage doors whenever you come close to them.

Naturally, as always, we're also adding a new fire truck mod made for us by @Nick which features custom lightbars that work with the server's ELS system. Do note that for the best experience with it you'll require to have his TXD hack file installed.

There has also been a polish to the server refresh system, it's been changed to happen every 4 hours instead of 2 and is also less resource demanding and takes less time now, a memory leak that we found inside of it has also been resolved.

It is also in plans to add a system where you'll be able to direct NPCs out of the fire zones as a firefighter, however, since we didn't reach that part yet it is not yet fully confirmed.


Callouts

The FD will feature various new callouts ranging from: Building Fire, Fire, Forest Fire, Vehicle Fire as well as some other callouts.

Building Fire - As the name itself says, it's a fire located in a building. We've taken the interior system that we already have in the server to it's full use by making enormous building fires with lots of fire located inside and outside of the buildings.

Fire - This will feature different types of fires at different locations, it can be either small, medium or large. Locations can range from just a trash bin on the street all the way to a large park fire in city's parks.

Forest Fire - As the title itself says, fires located in the various forests around San Andreas, usually large.

Vehicle Fire - As the title says.


Will this take as long as the 1.1.0 did?

No, at the time we announced 1.1.0 we were still working on the minor updates for the 1.0 update branch. However, this time, we're already working on the 1.2.0 and a decent amount of progress has been made as well which means that the 1.2.0 update is actually the next update and will take somewhere between one to three weeks.


What will happen with the branch at the main menu on the left?

The branch that's on the left on the main menu will be replaced by the organisation system that will come in the future. Organisation system will feature custom departments / divisions such as SAHP, SWAT, Detectives, etc.

  • Added /setadmin command for Head Admin+
  • Added 2 new radio stations: Nightwave Plaza (thanks @Joel9309 for the suggestion) & Old School R&B
  • [Experimental] Added a new endless pursuit system as well as made peds generate more dynamic routes (Bone County shouldn't be the hot spot anymore)
  • Improved vehicle pursuits by making the AI drive a lot faster than before (they're no longer stuck to ~80 km/h and can reach top speed)
  • Increased exp reward for patient drop off by 5 exp
  • Decreased exp reward for subject neutralized by 5 exp, increased arrest reward by 5 exp (please move your finger from the trigger, thanks!)

New Features

  • Added new callout: Street Race in Progress.

Vehicles can be either exotic or sport and have a random chance of spawning modified as well. They'll always make a run for it so make sure you're well prepared because they're not an easy catch with the updated pursuits system!

News & Information / High Command Staff Changes
« on: February 13, 2018, 10:17:35 pm »
Hello there,

Today we're more than happy to announce that there have been some changes in our High Command staff team, in a good sense that is. As of today @Caracatus1 has been promoted from Head of Helpers to Head of Administration and he's fully in charge of the staff team and @Chico2 has been promoted from Staff Supervisor to Head of Helpers which means that from now on all Helper letters of interests are to be sent to him via Discord DMs, not Caracatus1.

In addition to that we're also happy to announce that @armin4321 has been promoted from Moderator to Administrator (staff supervisor) as well as @goober5198 has been promoted from Moderator to Administrator (no extra roles assigned).

We're more than sure that they're going to do an excellent job in their roles and we also can't wait to see them start!


Kind regards,
Advanced Gaming Management

  • Fixed donators receiving "bonus" on negative exp value

Staff Team Information / How to become a Helper?
« on: January 19, 2018, 09:05:14 pm »
Hello there,

Are you interested in aiding Advanced Gaming with new coming players? Want to become a helper and think you have enough patience to handle all the questions that could potentially be thrown at you?

If so, please make sure that you meet the following requirements and send a letter of interest to @Chico2 preferably through Discord Direct Message or through the Forum PM.


Things to keep in mind

  • By being a helper you're fully volunteering in your position. Advanced Gaming owes you nothing in return, you will have our respect but will not be treated different than the regular players (by that we mean you are still not allowed to break rules, etc.), you can resign from your position at any time and are not required to be fully active in the servers but an inactivity report would be prefeered.
  • If you do well you have a chance to become hand picked into the official staff team as a Moderator, however, if you're a staff member in another server you will need to report it in either your letter of interest or after getting accepted into the Helper position, members that are staff members in other communities are not able to progress further from the Moderator position.
  • Staff team rules may change at any time, you are required to accept all of the rules given to you and also read any of new rules added at any time.
  • This is a position that requires A LOT of patience, you can have players that are not able to speak English properly and are hard to understand, we expect you to be able to cope with these situations, if not we will have to remove you from the staff team. In addition to that, other staff members are available as a support to you 24/7 and if you do have a question don't be afraid to ask, we're all friendly (hopefully) and are open to helping everyone out.

Staff Team Information / Helper Team Requirements
« on: January 19, 2018, 08:55:39 pm »
SAPD:FR Online official Helper requirements:


  • Must have a forum account
  • Be at least 15 years old
  • Be mature, players can be troublesome sometimes and they need someone mature enough to handle them
  • Be able to cope in stressful situations, a lot of questions may be coming towards you and sometimes they may be hard to follow
  • Fluent English grammar is a must, players need to understand what you're saying
  • Activity on the server is a huge advantage, we understand that some people have real life that they put in front of games and don't mind if our staff members report absence through a period of time
  • Must have at least one month of experience with SAPD:FR Online
  • Must have experience with how the server works in general


Do note that some of these rules may seem a bit too much for a role as small as Helper's but the recent changes in the staff structure makes the Helper rank the first one in the staff team before being able to move on towards the Moderator position.

Updates / Update 1.1.2 - January 12 2018
« on: January 12, 2018, 09:25:49 pm »
Bug Fixes

  • Fixed ped stream not setting dead peds to lay down position once you stream out and back into the area
  • Fixed the issue in which every nearby player would get / lose experience if somebody else killed a ped
  • Fixed script getting local player as killer instead of the ped if a ped kills another ped
  • Fixed the /changepw command
  • Fixed an issue in which multiple users were able to log into the same account at the same time (thanks to @Waitea15 for reporting it)
  • Fixed medics not getting money
  • Fixed the issue in which if donators had less than 15$ they weren't able to get their free repairs (how poor do you need to be to discover this though?)
  • Fixed ped blips not being deleted once killed
  • Fixed ped blips not being deleted after medics placed them onto the stretcher
  • Fixed some animations preventing peds from laying down once killed


General Improvements

  • Peds with illegal frisk items are no longer considered as a legitimate kill reason
  • Neutral peds no longer give 5 exp, instead they're considered as 0, this should encourage players to kill less peds
  • Street brawl peds now give negative exp unless they attack the officer or pull out a weapon (the no street brawl killing rule will most likely be removed in the near future as well)
  • Adjusted Idlewood's parked Voodoo rotation so it's actually towable as suggested
  • Rewrote the weapon damages, they now give different damage outcomes based on where you shoot the peds. Headshot is an instant kill, torso is second highest damage point while legs and arms are the weakest points
  • Improved deagle, made it shoot faster, increased it's clip size to 15 as well as lowered it's damage to represent a proper 9mm weapon
  • Added 1 more prisoner skin


New Features

  • Added 5%, 10%, 15% exp bonus for donators
  • Added new callout: Prison Break in Progress. This one has 15 peds at the spot of the prison which can either attack you unarmed, armed or simply do their best to escape

Ran By: @Mafia
Dispatch: @Mafia or @Blast3r or @Elite

Angel Pine next to San Fierro is possibly the most ignored department in the server and is also the only department we didn't hold a patrol event at. It's time for us to bring it to at least a little bit of life even if it means just for an hour. Just like all of the previous events Discord attendance is required but microphone is not, it is cruical that you hear the dispatch and you can always respond to the dispatch through in game chat if you don't feel like using a microphone or don't actually own one. To attend just meet up in front of the APSD building on January 06 2018, Saturday at 21:00 GMT+1.


Hope to see you there!

Kind regards,
Advanced Gaming Management
