Lithirm makes the front page!

posted by Harry on Saturday, April the 23rd at 10:08 PM


Hello everyone,

Lithirm recently expressed that it would "be pretty darn cool" to be featured on LVP's front page. So for this week's news post, we are going to take a look at everything Lithirm.

Lithirm registered on 23 December 2008 and has been online for 2070 hours and 12 minutes. In that time he has gotten 9890 kills and died 11339 times (K/D 0.87). Out of the 9890 kills, 3 of them were the result of a drive-by and 28 of them were done by a helicopter blade. Lithirm has been in 304 fights in Fight Club, winning 174 and losing 130. Leaving him with a FC K/D ratio of 1.34.

Lithirm is a pretty rich guy, considering he has $991.7 million in his bank account. But the money in his bank account isn't all the makes up who Lithirm is. He's also a fun loving guy ranking in at #98 with 455 minigames won, #11 for exporting 1,569 vehicles, and #2 for having the second fastest fingers in the land, with 7,777 reaction tests won! I think the only boring fact about Lithirm is that he's only detonated 2 carbombs in all his time at LVP.

So, there you have it Lithirm, you've made it to the front page. Most everyone loves you for the fun loving guy you are and some of us even love you for those fast fingers you have ;)

You can learn more about Lithirm here. And send him love letters here.

Las Venturas Playground 26.7 - Lag improvements & minigames fixed

posted by George on Thursday, March the 17th at 9:29 AM


Howdy,

Las Venturas Playground was previously running version 2.7.8 of Incongito's Streamer plugin. An update was recently released, which has now been applied (version 2.8.0). Subsequently, the lag/warp issue that we've been suffering from should now be resolved (this is the relevant case). The client crashes that were occurring when signing up for /derby 0, /derby 7 and /rwtw are now resolved.

Any feedback would be appreciated!

Introducing the Community Commitee!

posted by George on Thursday, March the 10th at 10:06 PM


Today, I would like to introduce you to the community committee. This committee seats a number of active people from our community, a mixture of players, administrators and Management members, who will be in charge of promotions, rules and represent the community on any other issue.

Current Members:

- Granny
- Lithirm
- Luce
- Xilent
- [BA]Overdosed
- Shem
- [BB]DoctorG

Initially, the committee will be able to nominate and accept new members of the crew, as well as propose new rules, guidelines and other changes to the community. Members get one vote each, regardless of level, and are encouraged to share their own views and opinions as they please.

We see this as an experiment, and hope to figure out a lot of details in the next few weeks. Be sure to ask one of the committee's members if you'd like to know more about it, they're the one in charge!

Thanks,
Granny

Integration of archived posts

posted by cake on Saturday, February the 20th at 10:43 PM


Hi there,

With this post I'd like to let you all know that archived posts, first not viewable for players, are now integrated into the sub-sections of this forum! You will be able to find posts in their respective sub-section. In addition, quoting Granny:
[quote='Granny' dateline='1455880554']

Shortly after we merged to MyBB, I changed our search type from MyBB's default to Full Text which seems to be pretty accurate/reliable - so of course, use the search feature if you're unable to find something!

Thanks Granny!

Regards,

Las Venturas Playground 26.4

posted by cake on Friday, February the 19th at 10:40 PM


Howdy,

An update has been pushed to the server! The changes can be seen below. If you notice any issues, please do let us know by replying here or logging a case on Github!

- Reset a player's look upon connection to avoid unwanted /my look styles - Fixes a bug where connecting players would get the look applied by previous players.

- Allow players to /ignore administrators

- Increase the vehicle respawn delay from 2 to 5 minutes

- Place /waterfight players on the same team, to avoid killing your opponent(s) and defeating the purpose of the minigame

- Reset the weapon variables for fixing players upon connecting - This fixes random weapon issuing with /fix.

- Use NewsController to distribute finished minigame notices - Move main chat clutter to the news messages section at the bottom of the screen.

- Handle vehicle respawning for features after the vehicle world has been set - Should fix the occurrence of minigame vehicles in world 0.

- Make a distinction between chats from different worlds for /my allchat users - Fix for crew members.

- Switch minigame color and override color - Should fix minigame players getting normal color instead of override color (like for /chase)

- Redefine InvalidColorId in ColorManager.pwn - Should fix color issues with the live map (map.sa-mp.nl)

- Fix 'time taken' for jumps. Also, players in map zones should count as minigaming players

- Heavily improve /minigaming to show more information regarding players in minigames, and teams (if applicable) - Use /minigaming to see who is playing what!

In addition, Russell is working on good stuff regarding activity logging. This should bring more awesome features in the future like tracking of weapon accuracy, kill assists, and way more. Stay tuned!
