Regarding Deer_Hunter

posted by TEF on Wednesday, January the 4th at 9:31 PM

Hello, everyone. Today, we share a different type of announcement with you all.

After 10 months of being a part of our crew, Deer_Hunter will no longer be an administrator on Las Venturas Playground. This decision was not made lightly—the voice of the community and various analyses were taken into account, alongside a multitude of discussions. We will not be disclosing all reasoning that led to this final decision, but do be aware that it is final.

We would like to sincerely thank Deer_Hunter for his contributions and efforts made to the Las Venturas Playground community, as this decision has no bearing on the good that he brought. Lastly, although he may be leaving our crew, he will always be welcome on our server and forum.

On behalf of the Las Venturas Playground Management,

As is traditional at this time of year, we've lifted all bans (with a few exceptions - said people will most likely know why) and anyone previously banned is now welcome to play at Las Venturas Playground once again!

The latest revision of our rules are as follows:

Cheats or modifications that grant an advantage over other players are forbidden
No excessive swearing, flaming, or racism
Avoid the use of constant CAPS while speaking in the main chat
DO NOT evade death by means of quitting and re-joining, running into interiors, or using commands
DO NOT abuse bugs and/or commands — c-bug and 2-shot are permitted
DO NOT harm a cruise in any way
DO NOT spam

Furthermore, we'd like to welcome [BB]Edz to the Crew - congratulations buddy! :)

Forum data loss

posted by MrBondt on Thursday, December the 29th at 5:54 PM

Good day.

Due to an unfortunate incident when doing some routine maintenance on our forum, we accidentally wiped out our database and had to restore a backup from a week ago.

This sadly means that all posts since then have disappeared and will not be restored. We're actively working on getting our announcements back as well as some other changes to the forum.

We apologize for all inconvenience this has caused.

On behalf of the Las Venturas Playground Management,

Forum Software Update

posted by George on Tuesday, October the 18th at 9:39 AM


LVP's community forum has now been updated from MyBB 1.8.7 to 1.8.8. This update primarily consists of squashing bugs. A full overview of the fixed issues can be found here:

Whilst we're hoping that the update will not introduce a forest filling range of issues, as with maintenance of this nature, there is an element of risk involved. As such, if anything looks out of place or doesn't work as expected, please raise your hand and say so! :)

Furthermore, if you've any suggestions to improve the forum, we'd also love to hear from you!

Lastly, we've introduced [ spoiler ] tags. 

[spoiler="MyBB..."]...has been updated :)[/spoiler]

With the release of LVP gamemode version 30.6, our developers introduced many wonderful features, improvements, and bug fixes. Our VIPs will now have the ability to own up to three houses per VIP account, anyone can now add health and armor pickups to their houses. This gives you the ability to essentially purchase permanent spawn armor if you spawn at a house with an armor pickup. The new vehicle system has been improved from LVP 30.5, and restrictions on recently shot and players who have shot on entering interiors have been introduced. 

New features:

  • VIPs can now purchase up to three houses on the server (d7c5c03)
  • You can now purchase health and armour pickups for your house (f9639cc)

  • Kicks and bans made by undercover administrators will now be hidden (4849e33)
  • Moved but unoccupied vehicles will start respawning again (18e56a7)
  • Management can now visit any available house interior (c528125)
  • Usage of /house goto is now visible to administrators (b84a79a)
  • You can't see which undercover administrators visited your house anymore (4700ee7)
  • You can now reset your custom color with /my color reset (22b481b)
  • Vehicles you spawn will have a personalized number plate again (642f99e)
  • The restricted zone for housing has been extended with DM areas (5fbd0db)

Bug fixes:

  • The /tow command has been made less prone to abuse (336c440)
  • The /dive command now works on Mount Chilliad (9161d94)
  • RC Vehicles near the ship can't be used avoiding death anymore (40d25fa)
  • RC Vehicles can be used by players again (a2e2ac2)
  • The /house command will now tell you about the goto option (81e8f22)

Special mention for Halo, who reported a lot of fantastic issues:
