    Hello everyone!

    This is quite a technical update, so sorry for that. The large amount of re-writes should mean one thing though; less lag. Enjoy!

    Make sure you're running the latest texture pack with this update! The server (and /rp) should give it to you.

    We're very happy to announce WatchDawg, our brand spanking new, custom anti-cheat. This is still early days (hence version 0.1), but we want to slowly bring the system online. We won't spoil our awesomely insane plans for the future of WatchDawg, but we're super pumped to see what you guys think of it as it continues to grow.

    Right now, we have detection for some of the most common types of hack within the network. People caught with this version of WatchDawg will be flagged up by staff, so they can easily find and catch hackers.

    If you see a hacker, please just use /report, and WatchDawg (and the staff) will start watching that user very carefully!

    We have a lot of guns, and want to bring out a bunch more in the future. How do they all compare to one another though?! Well, we've now fixed that. You'll see that all guns now have statistics on them, along with a short description.

    On the more technical end of things, we actually completely re-wrote the weapons, so that they're faster, and cause less lag. It will also allow us to possibly do some interesting, much requested feature down the road... No spoilers!


    [​IMG]

    • Improved trading system
    Previously, we used just a public plugin for our trading system. Now, it's our very own work, which is great! We've added the ability to have money in a trade, so now you don't need to worry quite as much about people scamming you - do your trades in this awesome safe environment!
    • Re-write of database backend
    This was a super large project, and we've been slowly rolling it out previously, initially over Vice and the Hubs. We now have this on GTM as well now. As such, you should see less lag with lots of players online, and generally just faster login times etc. This is still a work in progress as we continue to add and improve backend systems.
    • Minor Additions
    There's a couple smaller things that we've added also. For example, you can now do /trial to see how long your trial rank has left. We added a button to show casino rewards, and also made it clearer that there are 5 voting sites.


    [​IMG]

    • All shotguns now deal 25% more damage
    • Sticky Bombs now deal 25% less damage
    • Drugs are no longer sellable in trashcans
    • Getting hurt while looking in a chest automatically closes the chest

    [​IMG]

    Please note that a number of these bugfixes are already on the network, just not announced.
    • Choosing a house in your GPS no longer teleports you, it just points to your house
    • Fixed item duping issue with crafting inventories
    • Stopped players from interacting with flower pots
    • Fixed issue where players weren't getting Drugs kit
    • Fixed issues where hidden staff could be detected
    • Minor bugfixes

    Great Update it really will help GTM a lot. But one thing I noticed is that all net launchers have now became dildos. Is that part of the update or a bug?

    Tony Montana wasn't holding a machine gun when he said "Say hello to my little friend". It was more like an MG/Combat MG

    It wasn't a tommygun tho. It was equipped with something like a grenade launcher.
