posted by George on Sunday, January the 24th at 9:24 PM


An update was 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!

A small update was pushed to the server last night. 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!

- The Packet Loss counter that used to live in the bottom right hand corner has been removed. The results provided weren't accurate. As per the SA:MP wiki, "this function has been found to be currently unreliable the output is not as expected when compared to the client. Therefore this function should not be used as a packet loss kicker"

- When in a truck (e.g. the Linerunner) with a trailer attached, the trailer would often detach itself for no good reason. This issue is now resolved

- When stepping out of a vehicle, the rotation/position of the vehicle sometimes changed. This issue is now resolved

- Changes have been made to improve the reliability of /nos inf(inite)

- /settings newsmsg off now filters out textdraws that usually appear at the bottom of the screen (e.g. signing up for events, property purchases, etc)

- The Christmas decorations have been disabled

- An issue whereby minigames could lead to a false auto-ban due to weapon cheat detections has [hopefully] been resolved

- The commands listed under /cmds --> Main have been updated. @ has been removed as it isn't a command in the traditional sense, along with /leave, given that it only applies in certain situations

- Various server-side limits have been increased in an attempt to reduce lag and improve gameplay

- Various improvements/changes to crew commands
