We're excited to share another announcement, this time focusing on everything related to our great community! It's exciting and we hope you are enjoying the more frequent announcement updates.
Where We Currently Stand
We deeply appreciate the loyalty and dedication of our players who have stood by us during this journey. Your commitment is what keeps us motivated to make LSRP the best it can be. We're actively working on initiatives to reward and recognize those players who have been instrumental in propelling our server forward. Listening to our community, we've received a trove of suggestions that we're excited to implement in the coming days and weeks. In fact, many of these proposed changes have already found their way into our latest Major Update 1.6.0, which includes the fantastic new graffiti system which was created by a collaboration between @ImperiumXVII & @java!
But we're not stopping there. In the weeks ahead, we're planning to fully harness the power of LSRP's social media presence. Expect to see us engaging on platforms like YouTube, TikTok, Twitter, and even collaborating with content creators to live-stream their in game sessions on Twitch. This broadened presence is part of our strategy to reach a new audience for player acquisition.
Just as important, we understand the significance of player retention. We want every active player to feel valued and appreciated for choosing LSRP as their daily server. To accomplish this, we're introducing an exciting media scheme. If any of your LSRP-related content is featured on our social channels, you'll be rewarded for your contributions. While the specifics of these rewards are still in the works, we believe that this will motivate and inspire individuals to continue showcasing their creativity through LSRP media.
Here is just a few of the creative interiors made by our great community, pushing the boundaries of /furniture. Imgur album
Our players' creativity has no bounds, and it's on full display with the use of the /furniture feature. This command has allowed our community to craft incredible interiors for their properties, taking their ingame experience to new levels. We're delighted to see how properties have become a canvas for character development and storytelling.
Properties are something the staff team has a high priority to focus on, as they're where players spawn and begin their ingame activities. Recognizing their significance, our dedicated staff team has been channelling their efforts into enhancing the property system.
We're excited to announce that we've introduced over 4,500 new /furniture items, expanding your options for interior design. Our tireless teams are hard at work, categorizing these items to make your decorating experience smoother and more enjoyable. We're also aware that some /furniture items may not be functioning as intended, and we're committed to resolving these issues promptly.

Properties are the foundation of your ingame journey, and we're here to ensure they continue to be a space for your creativity and imagination to thrive. Stay tuned for more exciting updates in this realm as we make your properties even more extraordinary.
Factions / Illegal Factions Team (ILT)
Factions are another big focus for us, creating a dynamic and engaging environment for our players. We're proud to host a diverse selection of established factions, each with its own unique identity and role in the server. Some of these factions include The Bellomo Crime Family, LSPD, LSSD, Hell Runners, TKG18, and many others. If you're looking to become a part of something bigger, keep your eyes peeled as many of our server factions frequently open opportunities for recruitment. It's your chance to get involved and make your mark.
In the upcoming weeks, we have an array of exciting illegal-based suggestions that we're eager to bring to life on the server. One notable addition is the introduction of the graffiti system which is able to be used by anyone however will be primarily used by factions for spraying faction turf. Another new feature is the overhaul of the prison system and the introduction of parole, this really allows players to have as much freedom as they need to fully develop their character through the prison system.
These are just two of the implementations we have in store for our factions and illegal players with many more in the pipeline. We're all ears when it comes to your suggestions. If you have ideas that can elevate our faction experience, please don't hesitate to reach out to our dedicated Factions Team. You can also post your suggestions here. Your feedback and insights play a pivotal role in shaping the future of our faction system, and we look forward to working together to make it even better.
Ever since we introduced Companies to the server, the response has been nothing short of incredible. This feature empowers players to set up their businesses, make hiring and firing decisions, maintain a fleet of company vehicles, and dictate when their business operates. It's a fantastic addition that not only enhances the gameplay experience but also opens up a whole new avenue for income. In fact, many players have seen their fortunes grow significantly in recent months, and the next success story could very well be yours.
