April 2018 Development Blog

Development Team


 

Hey everyone. It became apparent that we needed to become more transparent with the state of servers development as the weeks went by since the decision to lock the server was made.

As of MARCH 30TH, 2018 the current patch notes for 1.0 are: The current patch notes do not represent the final quality of the revision as we will keep optimizing existing content and adding new features. 1.0 includes additions, bug fixes and changes.

I'll reiterate that The current patch notes do not represent the final quality of the revision as we will keep optimizing existing content and adding new features.  We have exciting plans for 1.0 and we hope that the wait will be worth it for everyone. 

 

#Addressing donators:

We're grateful to everyone who's been patient so far. I know we've said we'll put out a list of donator features. That hasn't happened yet and all I can do right now is extend my apologies for the wait and inconvenience. The wait doesn't come without reason, however. We're going to ensure that every donator feature we have thought out is IMPLEMENTED and a hundred percent.

A list of features will be posted as soon as possible in its respective information boards. 

 

#Addressing the release date:

I've put it out there on multiple occasions that we won't be putting out a release date until we're 100 percent certain that we're at a good place with the script. I don't think it'll be that long but there'll unfortunately continue to be a wait. The best thing you can do is wait for now and I'll also reiterate what I said in a previous thread:

 

If an estimate was given by someone from outside the lead development or management team than it's most likely false. If it wasn't from Rehasher,DamianC, or I don't bother about it. We're going through the same phase with the community that we went through before the first launch. You ask for a date. We give you an estimate date. We're not satisfied with the state of the script when that date has arrived so we call it off. All there would be is more disappointment from the community.

 

I understand where you're coming from though. If I wasn't in the staff team, I'd probably be asking for estimates. The team and I have been working on additions and fixes to the script since we've locked it down, I can assure you that. We're doing our best to get it along as fast as possible. I can personally assure that to you all. I wouldn't want to disappoint again, especially after putting as many hours into this community that I have. I was probably the most let down by the release being a flop. The bottom line is if we gave an estimate it'd hurt more than it'd help ya. If I were to say... Summer of 2018, you'd probably be outraged by waiting 3 more months. If I said April 1st and we get there and we tell you we aren't ready? More outrage from the community. 

 

#Other notes:

If you're out of date with what's going on, you can check out some recent announcements. Some are:

-Announcement regarding the state of Bay Area Roleplay:

 

-The business system from DamianC: 

 

 

-Point of Contact

 

Quoting DamianC here! Help us Help You! We don't want to sit on a buggy server no more than you so please do your part in keeping our server clean of any bullcrap. While on the subject! We are always looking for a helping hand, so if you know someone with a passion for either scripting or web coding hit us(DamianC,Rehasher,Charlie or I) on Discord. Show us your work, tell us about yourself, and please don't hold anything back about your personality. If you're someone who wants to help but aren't into coding, you can always contact Halcyen, the Head of the Mapping team or Survivalmaster, the Head of the Modding Team. 

 

I hope this development blog gives some real insight to the community. I believe it's fair to say that we're all eager for the server to release on 1.0 and see how it turns out! If you've got any questions, concerns or wanna talk about anything, never hesitate to PM myself or anyone from server management! We're all very open people! 

 

Kind Regards,

kane

 NPC Tram that travels San Fierro.

 

Nice!

 

Everything's looking good so far, y'all should probably work on adding more jobs so grinding can be fun for players.
