Tuesday (15/08/17) at 15:00 PM GMT the GTA V RP server went down due to a critical server side update for FiveM. While we were aware of this update, we only have one developer and were unable to push this new update and properly test and fix any bugs. As a result of this, we expect to be down for a maximum of two weeks.
We're taking this time strip back and rebuild, fixing bugs and adding some new stuff.
So, with that in mind, we would like to announce a few new things you can expect from LSL now and in the future!
· Whitelisted Server.
· 32 Player Servers.
· Custom Items.
We have some more stuff to announce for our RP server but I’ll save that for another post.
Alright, so all this great stuff is coming but what can you do during the two weeks away?
We are now hosting our own Dark and Light RP server for members of the community to join! You can find more information on that within the forums.
We’re also open to playing new games with you guys and if we’re able, we can host servers for them.
Okay, so a TL;DR version is the server is down for two weeks and we’re hosting other games in the meantime.
We hope to see you all in two weeks time!
The LSL Staff Team.
For those of you who don't know, roughly two years ago Los Santos Life was cancelled with what was thought to be a no hope of revival. The one major restriction for us was FiveM's unforeseen forced cancellation, this severely hampered our ability to host dedicated servers.
Many different options were considered but unfortunately, in the end, our opportunities faded out and nothing could be done to remedy the situation - due to the circumstances at the time and alas our project was cancelled.
However... Within the past few months, it became apparent that there was another chance, with a refreshed view and a renewed excitement for the project our Community Director Wrighty pulled everybody together to re envision the dream that we all had and so, much of the original team is back to carry this project forward.
Los Santos Life RP’s latest news, June 2017
There have already been great strides towards making LSL a reality, FiveM went back into development and is in continual development as we speak, it has come far since its original conception and can now support up to 24 players per server. The majority of scripting/coding that is needed for the base of our own dedicated server/s is already in existence and our lead Developer Qzen is working tirelessly to make everything function correctly and add any functionality that is desired for initial release - with brand new unique LSL features.
Saturday the 10th of June at 6pm GMT is when we go live with our very own server and we all are very excited to see everyone role-playing and having a great time if anyone has any questions be sure to contact us either by TeamSpeak or on the forums.
We've been silent for a while so I figured I'll give everyone who's been following us an update as to what is going on here at LSL!
As some of you may have heard, the developers of FiveM, an alternative multiplayer mod for GTA V have been hard at work and there is currently a highly experimental version of the mod available for people to try.
This is great news for us at Los Santos Life because a multiplayer mod - specifically one with dedicated servers - will be the foundation of this mod. As the development of FiveM progresses, more specifically with what server developers can do, the development of Los Santos Life will truly start becoming a reality.
As I'm sure you are aware we recently passed the one-thousand users signed up achievement and we would like to thank everybody for their interest with LSL and continued support. We are pretty close to twelve hundred users already!
So development work is really starting to pick up now with our own dedicated GTA server and the website is looking better than ever. I would also like to congratulate Qzen on his fine work on the website and implementing all the tiny features and requests we keep pestering him with! Here are some of the new features added to the website:
Also we are looking to expand the development team to lighten the load. If anybody is interested in potentially signing up to be a part of the mod's creation speak to Qzen, the Director of Development. A good knowledge of coding and programming will be required and can be discussed in thorough depth with Qzen.
The launcher concept created by Duk is becoming a reality now as it has been coded into C#, it looks very much like the concept and will smooth and easy to use upon release.The Character Creation portion of the website is very much underway and within the near future we will be able to construct a thorough news post explaining it all and how it will work alongside the mod.
Additionally we produced this small video to give you a little taster of the kind of business you may expect the people of Los Santos to produce.
Once again, thank you for the constant support and of course, if you have any questions be sure to check the faq page in case the answers are there!
