It has been a few days since the website got launched, and we already got a bunch of updates for you. The frontpage has been updated with a number of new features. Firstly, the looks of the news system have been overhauled, news items should now be much clearer and easier to read. We plan on posting an update every few days, so be sure to check the site every once and a while.

On top of that, we've added an official Las Venturas Playground Twitter account, which can be found in the right-hand menu on this page. The newest tweet will always be displayed on the website, but for the Twitter die-hards among you it may be easier to follow using their service. Finally, a number of bugs have been fixed on the website. Moving it away from our testing domain has broken some services like Whatpulse and user synchronisation, rendering the registration feature useless. Almost everything is working correctly again!

The Las Venturas Playground gameserver has just been updated to the latest version, LVP 2.91.3. Some minor things have been fixed, such as losing your weapons when joining a minigame from the ship. We've also added a some new locations to our taxi system. Last, but certainly not least, considering Christmas is getting closer we have enabled our yearly Christmas settings. Enjoy the in-game Christmas tree! Play following our rules and you might even get a present from Santa!

Merry Christmas from the entire Las Venturas Playground Staff!

Welcome on the new Las Venturas Playground website!

Welcome to the brand new Las Venturas Playground website!

Over the last months we've been working hard to bring you this totally renewed website. This new site is much more interactive and includes a lot of new features, including detailed player, server statistics and awesome WhatPulse statistics. The way we now create our statistics also allows third parties to use our API, in order to create their own cool website with statistics. We are very excited about our new website, it has a lot of great new features, and the layout and look of it has been drastically changed.

But these are not the only cool things that are new. The launch of the new website goes together with a relaunch of Las Venturas Playground. Version 2.0, as we like to call it, is a positive change in many aspects. Las Venturas Playground is now much more transparent. Every policy we have can be viewed, including policies on how we handle your privacy, what rules we have to maintain order and regulations for our staff. Also, we've done some internal changes within the management that will decrease the bureaucracy with discussion inside the management, allowing us to be more dynamic and flexible.

To celebrate this, we've set up a competition with an awesome prize you can win by just having fun! This prize is a brand new nVidia PNY GTX 260-OC videocard. Find out how to win this by checking out the contest page.

Again, welcome to our new website, and please take a look around to get as excited about it as we are.

Regards,
The Las Venturas Playground Management
