Las Venturas Playground Cristmas 2010

Development

There have been some changes in development personnel. Matthias has stepped down as a lead developer of the gamemode due to other commitments. Jay is once again a lead developer! This is extremely exciting news for players because Jay was responsible for some of LVPs biggest updates, such as LVP 2.90! You can expect to see lots of huge changes in terms of the development process. These are likely to come in after Christmas - we'll give you an update as things progress.


Version 2.93

Las Venturas Playground 2.93 was released last month. It was run on the main server for a few moments before being delcared unstable. This was very upsetting news for players because it was one of the biggest updates of the year. The development team is attempting to resolve issues with the update and optimize the code. 2.93.1 will be released very shortly. We'll make a seperate news post regarding the same.
