    Hello everyone!

    Wow, it's coming to the end of the year already. Looking back to the beginning of this year, the size of GTM has grown to heights I don't think anyone thought possible. Truly fantastic stuff. We're super excited to continue to bring you loads of updates throughout 2018, and we're now working on some absolutely, mentally, massive stuff that we think everyone will enjoy quite a bit...Here's to the new year, and you - the players - for making this such a fantastic server!


    [​IMG]
    There is currently a sale in the store! It will end on January 2nd. We're also selling Christmas exclusive items, so head on over to store.grandtheftmc.net to see everything that is on offer!

    This event will run until January 2nd. While the Christmas event is active, you can get Candy Canes from Santa Drops, or the store. The server starts a Santa Drop every 1-2 hours; you can also start Santa Drops themselves by purchasing Nice Lists off of the store. When a drop starts, it throws out up to 25 Candy Cane items.

    [​IMG]

    Right clicking these Candy Canes will open up a shop, where you can purchase various things. This includes tags for our new tag system, Christmas related armor, snowballs and Christmas cake (that gives slowness and regeneration).

    The most expensive thing you can buy with Candy Canes is the 'Clausinator', which is a new gun. It fires slowly, but has a lot of ammo per clip. Hitting a player doesn't deal damage, but instead slows them. Hitting them multiple times slows them more and more! It costs money to reload this gun, instead of ammo.

    [​IMG]

    The Christmas event also includes Nice Lists, which can be bought from the store to start Santa Drops. It also includes Naughty Lists, which you can use to put a bounty of Candy Canes on a specific player.

    We have a new resource pack, that replaces all the existing weapon models. This new pack is also laid out in a new way, so that we can do something quite interesting that will find its way to the network early next year. Get hype!


    [​IMG]

    • Tag system
    This is a new system where you can replace your GTM rank (ie Godfather) with cool tags that you can unlock! For now, these are the initial Christmas tags. You can view and select your tags in your settings menu, as well as changing from GTM rank to selected tag via preferences.

    • Backend porting of ranks and currencies to new system
    In our continual effort to improve the stability and reduce lag on the network, we have ported over the final major systems for our new database system. If you saw previous announcement threads, you can see we've spent a lot of time on this, so it's great to see it starting to be wrapped up!
    • Minor Additions
    There are also lots of smaller stuff that we added - for example, we improved the game selector in the hub. We also improved the logging of votes, although please note not all vote issues are fixed with this update, it is the first step in the right direction.


    [​IMG]

    • Explosion sizes have been nerfed slightly
    • Increased resource pack sending time, allowing slower computers to fully log in before sending the resource pack (should reduce crashing)
    • Vehicles can no longer be sold in the trashcan

    [​IMG]

    Please note that a number of these bugfixes are already on the network, just not announced.

    • Fixed rare issue where players could be invisible in spawn
    • Fixed issue where trashcans sometimes didn't work
    • Fixed issue where players sometimes couldn't eat
    • Fixed issue with house chests

    Shit @peraldon, you and the rest of the Devs are putting in major work! These are all great updates! Thank you all for your hard work (though I will retract this statement if I don't get at least one Santa Drop xD)

    For everyone asking, the drops happen every 1-2 hours and spawn anywhere in the map. The boss bar (on the top of the screen) will have an arrow directing you to the drop.

    My thoughts while reading this

    #1: I'm guessing the thing the respack will allow is either being able to see the clip/magazine removed while reloading or gun skins

    #2: Will the Christmas tags get removed after a while, and will the psychopath tag be re-added?

    #3: Explosion sizes have been nerfed slightly(cough cough sticky bombs cough molotov cocktails cough cough cough)

    #4: "Vehicles can no longer be sold in the trash can".

    Wait, what?

    Very grateful to the staff for working to improve the great server we all love. Keep up the good work! ;)
