    [Patch 1.3.0]
    It's been a while since our last patch update. We've been having internal discussions about exciting future content we have been planning. We want to get this planning of new features correct, and feedback from our QA team is extremely vital in testing content before it reaches the live networks.

    If you would like to apply for QA, please read over the application format and post an application here:
    https://grandtheftmc.net/forums/qa-team-applications.47/

    Now on with the patch notes :)!


    [New Spawn]
    The Build Team have been working on the new spawn for several weeks now. We've iterated multiple design layouts through different branches of our teams and feel like we've nailed the layout of the new Spawn for Minesantos and Sanktburg!

    [​IMG]

    When players first log into the server, all the most important buildings and NPCs are directly in front of them. Scenery no longer obstructs view of points of interests, and larger buildings have signs or features that make them stand out. This new spawn has been strategic been laid out to avoid confusion and help guide newer players.
    [​IMG]

    Please leave comments below about the Spawn and if/what you like about it! Your feedback is always appreciated :D.


    [Vote Shop]
    We've made drastic changes to Voting rewards. This feature has been planned for months and development was extremely particular about the use cases for our senior staff team. Voting becomes less useful to the player as they progress through the server, and new users are almost always inclined to vote because of the huge starting bonus it gives you.

    [​IMG]

    We've also changed the voting rewards from 2 Crowbars, $2000, 5 tokens to 1 Crowbar, $1000, and at least 1 vote token.

    Players can earn additional vote tokens by increasing their vote streak. The higher the vote streak, the more base vote tokens players will earn.

    [​IMG]

    When a player loses their vote streak, we will no longer punish them as severely as before. Observe the graph below that shows how quickly your rewards return after losing your vote streak.

    [​IMG]

    WHAT ARE VOTE TOKENS?
    Vote Tokens are a GLOBAL currency that allow players to spend their rewards how they want. If players wish to redeem a bunch of crowbars because it's useful to them, amazing! If they want money because they are low on it, nice! But what about the veteran players?

    In the future, we will be releasing EXCLUSIVE and/or time limited rewards solely through this vote shop. We suggest veteran players start saving up Vote Tokens for some cool unique rewards coming soon.

    [​IMG]

    Currently, we have configured about 50+ different rewards that the Managers can turn on/off at any time of day via a scheduling system. This can persist across different GTM maps (Minesantos, Sanktburg, New Mineport), and they can also be different!

    So if you haven't voted today already, make sure to do so now and start building up your vote tokens. You can access the voting sites here: https://grandtheftmc.net/vote/

    Upon release of this Vote Shop, a player quickly suggested a specific reward, and within minutes it was purchasable. Our point: Not all of our content comes this quickly, but please throw us some ideas in the comments below and we will be sure to check it out. So what would you like to see as a Vote Reward?


    [Tutorials]
    New tutorials for Minesantos, Sanktburg and New Mineport have been added/edited clarifying various things regarding the server. The server tutorial can be accessed via the /tutorial command (or /t).


    [General Changes]
    - Adds various commands for houses/premium houses to help staff serve player requests.
    - Fixes issues with player statistical tracking like last login. We love seeing you online :).
    - Fixes NetLauncher issues on New Mineport (GTM7).
    - General cleanup of various manager/admin commands, like our Event system.
    - Votes will now be automatically parsed, and rewards will be given to you depending on the server you are on.
    - Added general menu/lore cleanup of the rewards and vote menus.
    - Huge backend changes for how we handling loading of different spawn layouts.
    - And most importantly, we think we've identified a huge source of lag with the Bungeecord/Proxy and have applied a fix.

    [SALE]
    GTM will like to wish out American players a HAPPY 4TH OF JULY! With the American independence in a couple days from now, GTM has launched a 30% SALE on our store at https://store.grandtheftmc.net/ that will last until July 7th at midnight (EST). Don't miss this chance to get yourself a few crowbars or a dashing new rank!

    Great job, could someone explain losing the vote streak? That graph is a bit plain and confusing.

    The spawn is definitely one we can be proud of! Im a huge fan of all the updates our friend stephen has released. Hes done amazing!

    Lets keep this up team!

    As you see, the graph will go up a lot quicker at the beginning, than at the end. This means: lose your vote streak, and you will be able to get really close after 4 days only (As you see, the first 4 days jump up by a lot).

    As you see in the graph, right after you loose your vote streak after voting just 4 days, you already gain back about 40% of the voting bonus. And after just 9 days you are 67% of the way there to the maximum vote streak bonus. So thats whats meant by that the penatly for loosing your vote streak isn't as severe.

    The new spawn looks great! Feels a bit like "coming home" to old spawn. Just still miss the sewer guy.

    Haha. We tried to base the new spawn off of the old one. We wanted everything to be close to eachother, and have the important buildings be at the important places. This spawn was more thinking than doing ;)
