MAJOR Game Update 12.3.0

Hey everyone. I'm excited to announce our game update for April 2020, 12.3.0, our second major update of the year. 12.3.0 will introduce two of our newest features, the Burner Phone and Billboard System. Before I go further on, I'd like to thank the members of the staff team who spent hours through the month of March, helping us work on and test this update.

Introducing the Burner Phone

The burner phone is arguably one of the most requested features on the server. Over the years, the suggestions and faction boards have been filled to the brim with all sorts of ideas regarding it. I'm happy that we're finally able to deliver it to you guys. We officially took on the task in early March 2020, and here we are now with a complete burner phone system. I'm hoping what we've made here makes up for the long wait you've all had to endure.

Please read the feature documentation linked below for more information.

Introducing the Billboard System

The billboard system was built with the intent of making the city feel more dynamic and less static by introducing custom Billboards spread across the city and county. Companies can take advantage of this system and use it as an advertisement method instead of recurring to the old advertisement or even the forums. In summary, the billboard system brings a new life to Los Santos and the County by utilizing custom models that can be submitted by companies followed by an application, which you can find here.

Please read the feature documentation linked below for more information.

Server Mapping

During March, our mapping team has also been working on producing new maps to add to the server. I'd like to personally thank Coconuty and ashh for their hard work and extensive activity in development through out the month. We'll once again be replacing the Pershing Square mapping. We had previously done this but due to technical issues, which are addressed in this update, we were able to give it another go. We are also replacing the large white building that is in Unity, next to the previous Alhambra area, among other things, such as an interior based sewer system, which you can find by exploring the sewers!

Here are previews (GIFs) of these changes but I recommend you go see it for yourself for a better experience!

RE: Poker Changes

The poker changes were done based on my initiative. While the Poker system is one of my all-time LS-RP favorites, it's unfortunately a breeding pit for unauthorized money transfers (we see you, don't worry) and OOC games. Poker in casinos remains same as it was until now, the limitations only apply outside of casinos. Casinos are strictly monitored and are expected to uphold a certain roleplay standard. Since some people enjoy the backroom poker RP, we left it in at low stakes, so you can enjoy the roleplay aspect of it without there being room for abuse by bad actors. Poker inside casinos is allowed only during public openings, using it (or allowing anyone to use it) when the casino is closed will result in the casino being taken from you.
