2.90, Everything comes to an end

posted by Fireburn on Tuesday, February the 24th at 9:00 PM


Hi all,

Everything comes to an end, yesterday, after months of development, we finally released 2.90.0, and we are proud of it, we have worked hard on this great update, which includes loads of cool new features, a lot of bugfixes, and further optimizations. You can read more about Las Venturas Playground 2.90 on the brandnew LVP wiki, which can be found here. This ends the long wait for you, and it ends the months of developing and keeping things secret for us, as a development team.
We are very proud to bring you this piece of software, so you can enjoy Las Venturas Playground even more!
However, such a big release, always brings some problems. The server was down for over an hour this day, and even despite heavy beta testing, some bugs made it into the gamemode.
If you find a bug, please post a topic in the Bugreports Section of the forum. We can then look into the bug and fix it.
We will also update our Changelog on a regular base, so you know what we fixed and what a new update brings.

Like I said already, everything comes to an end.
As you read in the Release Announcement Jay will be leaving to America tommorow. I would like to take this place to say thanks to him for everything he did for the development of 2.90 the last 7 months. It was really great working with you, and with this piece you can proudly go to America. You also were a good friend, and a good fellow admin. We, as developers thank you for the great time, and the leadership, and everything you did to release 2.90! Good luck in America, and drop by every now and then.
Since we know you will like 2.90, you can also thank Jay in the Farewell Jay topic.

Everything comes to an end, however, the development of Las Venturas Playground hasn't ended yet. We will keep bringing you updates regularly, and we can now start working on 2.91, the next version, which will have some great new features as well, including a new gangminigame, and a big unannounced feature, which will both be announced later.

And for the last time, everything comes to an end, so does this blogpost, I hope you enjoyed reading it, and we wish you great fun in this fantastic 2.90 update.

On behalf of Badeend, Peter, Wesley, Woet, Pugwipe and [Griffin],

Good Evening.

For the last 4 months the Las Venturas Playground development team have been working on an update for Las Venturas Playground. LVP 2.90 features over 200 new features, bug fixes, and general improvements to the gamemode which is now running on the main server. Some of the most notable features are:


  • Over 15 new minigames
  • A brand new Fightclub system
  • Improvements to the taxi and bank systems
  • Many new methods to earn and spend money
  • Re-introduced some of the older features, such as airport tax, chase minigame, and the Fort Carson property
  • An ingame race builder for admins
  • Derby system completely re-done & many new derbies added
  • MySQL based user accounts


You can view a full feature list by viewing our changelog on the brand new Las Venturas Playground Wiki!

As of tomorrow evening, I will be leaving Las Venturas Playground and SA:MP, as I'm emigrating to Los Angeles, America, to start a new life and help run a family restaurant.

I'd like to thank everybody who has contributed to Las Venturas Playground 2.90, including the beta/development team, and everybody helping out with the public beta testing.

On behalf of the Las Venturas Playground development team,
Jay
Ex 2.90 lead developer.

Don't forget to add this new IP to your favorites in the SA-MP client!
