Launching V8

Hi there,

Tomorrow morning after midnight (server time), there will be extended downtime while we upgrade the server to V8.

There have been countless changes, but I'd like to highlight these ones specifically:

  1. New Special Turf: San Andreas Central Bank.
    As the owner of this turf located in San Fierro, others will certainly be jealous of your faction. Your faction earns 0.04% interest rate on their faction bank balance (capped at $1b balance) every hour that you own this turf. Factions in the same alliance as the turf owner earn 0.01% interest rate.
  2. Alliance Compounds
    Every alliance on the server has a compound at its chosen location. These compounds must always be located outside the main Los Santos Turfs and >200.0 units away from the alliance gun run.
  3. New jail feature
    Reworked /jail. You can now /jail <playerid>, and you can select/deselect charges. This will now also automatically “fine” the players you’re arresting, so no more need to force them to pay and call admins!
  4. Faction businesses
    Businesses can now be owned by factions. Any tier 0 of a faction has the same control over faction businesses as a normal player-owned business. Use /biz to factionize; as always, factionizing is permanent, with no exceptions.
  5. Alliance Weapon Factory Heist
    This is an activity requiring team-play in the alliance of multiple factions. There must be at least 4 players of at least 2 different factions in the alliance present. Head to the given marker and steal the Cargobob Helicopter as instructed. Fly to the given location and steal the gun crates from the factory. Careful! Law Enforcers will be alerted of your robbery. Once loaded, head to the escape location and fill up the escape vehicles! Head to your compound and fill up the armory. If the stolen Cargobob gets destroyed before reaching the escape phase or the leader disconnects/dies, the heist fails.
There are a lot more things in the works that we will be releasing over the new few months, including smoother server restarts, dynamic turfs, new premium features, major UCP and website upgrades, and much more. As always, you can use Discord and the forums to post suggestions, report bugs, or just share your feedback on these changes.

Special thanks to the entire staff team for their thorough testing and feedback and to @ThaCrypte for all of his work on the script.

For a complete changelog, please refer to the IMRP V8 Changelog.

Enjoy all the new features!

Thanks,
Woet

I'm pleased to see a lot of suggestions hinted by the players are being implemented into the game in this new update.
Appreciate @ThaCrypte for devoting his valuable time in Visual Studio to work on this massive rework.

One thing: that changelog is outdated and some features from there got scrapped or are not yet finished. Woet probably used the old changelog from the testing phase.

Sports betting for example is planned, but not yet live. Also turfing with alliance members got scrapped.

Plus there are interesting features not listed there!

We'll also move all old suggestions and bug reports to an archive so we can have a fresh start. You're free to use the old suggestions as inspiration or suggest them again. Please do give the original suggestion credits as well :)
