March Release Update

Hey everyone,   We've decided to once again move our release date. First and foremost, please accept our apologies.   I understand the frustration everyone must be feeling, and you aren't alone. Our biggest challenge is time. Every release date we've set, whether February 24st or week of March 21st, has been calculated based on current development team availability which has proven to change unexpectedly more often than not, leading us to continue to undercalculate our progre

We need to talk ...

Hey everyone,   The last dozen or so posts we've made have been more or less pragmatic, to inform everyone about updates & what to expect next. It's been a while since I made a post about the server and its direction in general. I want to open a honest dialogue about where the server currently stands, and how we can move onwards and upwards from here.    There's no sugar coating it — we're in a tough position right now, from multiple angles. The player base has been stabl

First Staff Update of 2022

Hello everyone   The last year has been an unusual period of time for the staff team and we are getting closer to another milestone — launching our community on the GTA V platform. In preparation for the many months of developing the script we altered the way our team is structured by introducing the 'Insider' team. The whole staff team has played a vital role in establishing the ecosystem and building the foundation for the server, without their knowledge and experience we would not h

Clothing System Preview

Hello,   We're still hard at work and today I'd like to give you a few development updates so you can see what we've been cooking up. Before anything though - I KNOW! You want to see some of that juicy illegal faction action. Drogas, gats, theft, all of that. Well sorry but not today.   The Faction Team + some other members of our team have been hard at work preparing a thought-through bullet proof scheme to give our illegal scene the attention it deserves. LS-RP prides itsel

July Update

Hey everyone,   I'd like to update you on what's been going on the last few weeks. We've resumed development in a limited capacity after I had to take some time off due to personal issues and boy we've got a lot to talk about. As promised, it's July 13th so we're bringing you more information on the release timeline.   When does LS-RP come out? Given the scope of remaining work & testing, we're currently targeting to release in August. Vast majority of features are e

We're done.

Hey all,   If you've been following along on Discord you've probably seen the great amount of progress we've been able to accomplish lately. I'm happy to say that after overcoming more hurdles than I was ready for, we're now done with feature development for the release.   Over the last month especially, we've been pushing hard to bring the last necessary features through the finish line. We decided to include more than initially planned because we felt like the server just c

December 1st Development Update

Hello everyone,   As we enter December (already?? time flies when you're having fun), I'm eager to share some of the development and general progress updates. The last few weeks were once again very productive and even though there's still a lot of work and polish to be done, we're inching closer to an MVP every day.   One of the major achievements over the last two months was that we were able to put together a final list of features for release, including detailed blueprint

LS-RP:V Release Date (emotional) (shocking)

Hey everyone,   Hope everyone's doing well and getting ready for the holiday season. December was always special around LS-RP, I remember all the treasure hunts and winter/Christmas events we used to hold. I'm looking forward to seeing something like that in-game again as we celebrate the season... next year.   It's been quite challenging over the last few months to keep track of the remaining work. Trying to keep tabs on all the features in my brain has proven quite ineffici

Release Update

Hello,   As I mentioned on Discord already, due to reasons out of our control we are unable to release on the 24th as originally planned. This is due to real life circumstances and an attempted break-in into my apartment because of which I had to spend the last week and some change making sure my family and I are safe. Although I've gotten some of my time back to focus on the finalizing work I would've been doing, I'm still not 100% back and won't be for the next few days as it's an ev

Damage System Preview

Hey all,   Today I'm happy to showcase to you guys how far along we've came with our damage system which is just about complete. It's been really fun testing and we can't wait for you guys to hop in game soon and experience it yourself. Check out this video by @Xanakin to see more about it:     We really brainstormed how to handle damages and different type of weapons and I think we came out with a pretty solid system.

October Staff Update

Hello gamers! Welcome to the October 2023 Staff Update.   First and foremost I want to go over major changes to our leadership structure. If you've been paying attention over the past week or two, we've made quite a few changes. Ben, who's been the Head of Community (later renamed to Head of Operations) has stepped down due to lack of available time. He remains with us as a game admin to fully enjoy the fruits of our labor over the past years. I want to give him a big shoutout and a th

Hey everyone,   June 16th (2023) is when we want to go live. Here's a summary from today's Community Meeting detailing how we'll get there.    We're finishing the last bits of work and fixing what's remaining of our release-blocking bugs. Over the last week, we fixed 24 bugs and we've 2 blocking remaining, both of which are simple to fix, we just haven't gotten around to them with the amount of work yet.   The Communications Team ran a survey recently and among

Major Update 1.2

Hello,   Today we're releasing Major Update 1.2! I will take you through the updates we've been testing for the past week since Major Update 1.1 and explain what's new.   Continuing on from the theme of player retention and acquisition, and listening to your feedback, we understand that the script can really be restrictive of what you're trying to do ingame. You can't be a part-time bartender, for example, if you're trucking in the rest of your time. In this update, we are in

More Ways to Make Money on LS-RP

If you’re looking to make money on LS-RP and are wondering how to do so, remember there are many ways besides the traditional routes of trucking, lawn mowing and fishing.    There are various schemes in place which aim to promote and reward anyone who provides roleplay to the server; whether legal or illegal. This isn’t Euro Truck Simulator after all - it’s a roleplay server!    Let’s take a look at some of the options that are available to you right now, broken down into ill

Keeping you updated

Hi everyone,   We know it may have seemed a little quiet the last week or so, but rest assured, there are many big development updates on the way.   With a 7-strong team of developers (with more incoming), we're now able to focus on a range of features all at once. As they're all fairly sizeable and potentially complex features however, they're taking some time to complete. Even so, we'd like to give you an idea of what you can expect to see in the coming weeks.
