Elections for the Governor position is opened. Our former Governor had to step down, so we've decided to open campaigning back up. The goal is to hold voting after 2 weeks of campaign time. This would open the polls on July 24, 2021. If you're interested in running for the position, please post below with you character name, SSN, and a brief summary of what your campaign is all about.

Yes, that's right. The changelog is back on the forums.
 
@Sassy @Cosmic and myself will try keep and up to date record of all changes pushed to the live servers until such a time the Admin team automate this system. Be aware this may not happen on a daily basis as we are also people with lives outside of SoE.
 
Instead of posting the updates within Discord's changelog, it will now just display a link to the latest post here.

I was glancing through the clubs recently and saw that there are lot of inactive ones or ones made with only 1-2 members. This section use to be very active and can be handy for games or sections for businesses/gang type of things in SoE.
 
In about 2 weeks, I'm going to be deleting any club that only has 1-2 members or that hasn't been used for over a year. There are many that were made for different games that groups would like to play alongside of SoE but probably aren't played much anymore. At worse, if your club gets deleted, you can always remake another one and have people join it. This way, you'll have a more accurate list of active members within the club.
 
If you are the owner a club and have a reason to keep the club that has been inactive, please post here and it will be considered. If you don't know how to get there, you can mouse over Browse in the top nav bar and click Clubs.

Elections are coming up. In case you missed the beta announcement stating to start your campaign, you should start it now. The voting booths will be open for one week to allow everyone an opportunity to place their vote. Please read the following and submit your information if you are running for a position. Cutoff date/time for your submission is April 30th by midnight EST. Once the post is locked, you cannot submit your name to be put on the ballet. The voting polls will open on May 7th at server restart (4AM EST, 8AM GMT) and will close May 14th at server restart. This gives you 2 weeks to campaign and your final push during the week of voting.
 
Please read the following before submitting:
 
You may only run for one position for each election cycle. Voting is per user, not per character. This is to have a clean and fair election as discussed and voted on in the last admin meeting. It doesn't matter what character you use to place your vote (besides maybe for LSPD Chief since it's internal) This is our first election. This process could be changed or tweaked for the future, let's see how it goes. Once you submit your name to be placed on  the ballet, please start your campaign. Use the Weazel News section to run campaign you in will expect you to be

Hey everyone,
 
Finally, we'll be moving into Beta on 4/16/21  12-3 pm EST. We are aiming for noon, but things happen so that's a safe window. Please take the time to read everything below, there is a lot of information and changes coming. Details of some still need to be finalized, but this will give you an idea of the direction we're going in with 2.0. Also, expect bugs to still be present as with any beta of a game. The devs have done an incredible job getting 2.0 into the beta stage and stomping out the bugs that were found. There is still a lot coming to 2.0, so I hope you're excited to be taking this next step.

Good evening all. Your friendly neighborhood Major here to give an update on the status of SoE 2.0 and the work that has been done on it as of late. Unfortunately, we've decided to cancel the project. 1.0 is perfect just the way it is and we feel that it doesn't need any "update" or "rewrite." Thanks for understanding!

Hello everyone,
 
I'm sure a lot of you are wanting to know what's going with the server, SoE 2.0 and maybe a few other general things around the community. So, I'm going to lay them out for you the best I can and as accurately as I can with the information that I have been given or have gathered over the last few weeks. This update may be a little long and will involve a few different things about SoE as a whole. So let's begin...

SoE is getting an update
What does this mean?
 
For you - When you start FiveM and connect onesync.soe.gg it will immediately close down FiveM, this is NOT a crash, please do not panic, just sit back and wait, it will start up again and download a larger patch and then load you onto the server like normal!
 
After initial download - FiveM will always close down after you connect to the server and start up again by itself after you’ve connected and then take you on the server.
It will happen EACH TIME.
 
 
Why? - SoE is updated to the Diamond Casino & Resort DLC and The Los Santos Summer Edition
 
What does this mean? *Gasp*
Casino and area around it is getting a face lift, no interior
Some buildings across the map have changed
Paleto's European Local Car seller have moved a little bit to make room for Arcades
Arcades?!  Yes, but no interiors to access.
Dozens of new clothing items across both genders to browse through, you will find them all at the far right of each selection. 
No new Vehicles or weapons (yet)
New radio - Ifruit Radio (Plays UK Rap and Afro-fusion)
 
 
Enjoy, i sure will!

Are you in need of some custom artwork?
If you're in search of someone to make some custom artwork for you, my wife loves to draw. She started a website and has already gotten a couple of commissions. She charges depending on what you want and how much work she has to put in. So, a simple avatar of a headshot is cheaper than a full body. She finally did a drawing for my Trooper and is working on my criminal character on and off. So, I wanted to extend her work to you all if you're in need of some channel art, just want a drawing of your character, or whatever.
 
For me, my plan is to order a movie poster size of my Trooper and my criminal. She's also going to do one with both of them together and I'll have that movie poster in the middle. Of course, I'll probably add State of Emergency to the poster, but we'll see. One day, once she gets done with everything for me (I'm back burner ha) I'll post a pic of them hanging up and framed.
 
Anyway, I have what she did for me below. I told her to not spend a bunch of time on the background but I didn't want to use a screenshot from the game...though I may in the future. Check out her other artwork on her site and you can contact her through her site if you want more information and whatnot.

Hello guys!
 
As per Kelly's original post here , we are once again checking up on donor tags and the Teamspeak rooms.
 
If you have a Teamspeak room currently and no donator tag on the forums your room will be deleted in 2 weeks (September 2nd)
 
If you no longer have your donator tag on the forums and believe this to be an error, please PM me and this will be looked into.
 
Former staff members will not be affected and will keep Teamspeak rooms they have.
 
Thanks so much!

So by now you've likely heard murmurings of, saw an unofficial announcement of, or otherwise know of the upcoming update labeled "SOE 2.0." This post is meant to give an in-depth look at what the project is and what it will affect. While I'm more than happy to answer questions directly related to this post, please hold off on the "Will this feature be included?" and "Can this feature be included?"
 
What is it?
SOE 2.0 is, by far, the biggest project the dev team has worked on. It's slated to be a complete 'base' rewrite and optimization of the SoE framework. As some may know (Others may not), SoE does not use a standard, public framework. All of the work that went into making SoE work as an RP server game-mode was done in-house by the first dev 'team' (Or rather a single person) and made custom for SoE. While this has a number of advantages, it also has it's downsides.
 
The SoE 'base' was created back when FiveM (Or rather FiveReborn at the time) was in it's very early stages of development. This meant that a number of natives and functionality were unknown and unimplemented by the FiveReborn team. As such, the SoE base code was very limited in the functionality it could utilize at the time. As FiveM progressed, however, it slowly gained functionality and useful tools. Fast forward to today, and the SoE base is very out of date and often causes headaches when trying to implement the newer FiveM natives or functionality.

Hey everyone,
 
As we all see, our server numbers have been a roller coaster ride for the last few years. This year, donations have not been reaching their goal on a regular basis for the first time since starting SoE. The donations have always come in but lately they hardly reach a third of the requested amount  (with the exception of last month) . I broke down the operating cost to figure out if it was a smart decision to keep the SoE server going. I'm asking everyone to donate what you can spare to keep everything running smoothly. Donations will never be required to play here, but donations help keep the server going.
 
Why should you donate? The devs are working hard on new features and a totally overhauled SoE 2.0 that they are hoping to have done this year. (Please do not ask staff members about updates or timelines. There will be updates as progress is made.)
 
 To close SoE down would be one of the toughest decisions I would have to make, that's why I'm not ready to do so. As a community, we can spread the cost out among ourselves which should result in a very small amount if everyone pitches in. If we don't make the monthly goal, this doesn't mean the SoE server will be shut down the following month. However, if the donation goal continues to be missed,  shutting down the SOE server will be considered.
 
I broke down the operating cost and spoke with the senior admins to figure out what could be cut or reduced. Below is the breakdown of cost after we figured out what could be cut to save money. Some items on the list were already paid, for the year, but the plan is to reduce the cost for the next yearly cycle. You'll notice two bills are paid directly by a member who volunteered to pay them each month.  SoE costs and EPCG costs are broken down as well. Most people use EPCG for the SoE GTA FiveM server. If we need to close SoE, the EPCG server will always be a multi game community for hanging out and playing games with friends.
 
Without the volunteer staff contributing their time, donations wouldn't matter. We need both donations and volunteers to keep the SoE server running. Moderators manage the player base on the server and forums. The Dev team develops game features, fixes game issues and updates the server with new content. The Senior Admin team make hard decisions, oversee operations of the volunteer staff, and deal with the negative and toxic people that ruin the server. Their time is incredibly valuable!  Next time you see a staff member, consider thanking them for their time, and letting them know they're appreciated. 
 
Thank you donors for your contributions to keep gas in the tank and thank you staff members for your time and dedication to keep the wheels turning on the SoE ride!

I have been in the talks with some of the senior admins about starting a weekly to every 2 weeks game night where we play simple table top come and go kind of games such as casino games, card games, something you can join for a couple rounds and leave if you wish or stay for the whole night. We are looking for some feedback on an idea that was brought to the table. Normally I would put a poll in for this however I want written feedback on what you think about the Idea.
 
the Idea is when we play casino night you can bring server money to gamble with.
Simple Rules -
1) you can only bet with the money you have 
2) it can only be from one character, you cant cross character so if you loose all your money you are out or you can take a chance on a loan from a table member.
3) no house pot so you are betting with people at the table and taking the pot from the bet.
4) you lose the money you have to honor it and pay up.
 
We will sit down with the feedback given and have a chat about this and the decision of the Idea will be announced at Sundays game which we will start at 9 pm EST. We will be in the Team speak Room "Community Game Night".
 
** SIDE NOTE**
If this takes off or a ton of interest in another timezone would like to host this if I cant be around I will need helpers to run at EU and AU times please send me a forum message if you are interested in hosting and helping.
 
Hope to see all who can make it there!!

Hopefully you're not thinking oh no...
But yes! You have read correct. OneSync is back!
This time it's back with a whole new attitude too.

We're running an entirely new system setup to ensure stability while running OneSync.

After typing up event suggestion ideas on a whim, I decided to just say screw it and try to move forward with this one if enough interest is shown in this post
 
Premise
 
Are you a good driver? Think you can best all the other drivers out there against the cops? Prove it! All the races are you against two cops. Lose em for 60 seconds and you win the round. Don't lose them within 10 minutes and you are disqualified and out of the races. The first race is friggen easy, so easy my grandma could do it. Exotic super car vs what? A Charger or a Mustang? You got this. Later on, will that luck hold out in a Ford Focus? Yeah, probably. What about a minivan or a Emperor? Now you begin to see who is actually good and who is all talk.
 
Server: TBD - Devs have reserved an event server
Date: May 16th
Time: 6PM EST
Entry Fee: Free
Sponsors: Will take prize proceeds if I must but I don't really want prize money - I want to see a 32 slot event server filled for what could be a fun engaging event. In the past I have seen a dozen sponsors throw money at something but not see the event full of contestants. It's easy to sponsor something - it's not easy to get enough interested contestants to make the event worthwhile

Inventory 2.0 is live!
 
The commands you want to remember is simple, take your time to learn how to navigate.

/inv or hotkey F7 to bring up the new Inventory UI.
Escape to get out of the Inventory UI or use F7 again (togglable) to close it
Double Left clicking the item uses the item.
 
Examples; 
Double click the sandwich icon to eat/use the sandwich.
Double click the slimjim (cops) to use the slimjim on a car.
 

 

Drag drop to the hands Or Right click the icon to have it automatically move to the hands
 


Split a stack easily by moving the stack to the hands and then clicking the button split, you can change the split amount by changing the number in the Amount field.


 
 
 
To merge all those items, just drag or right click them to your hands to get one neat stack again.
 

 
 

To drop an item, move it or right click the item to the hands then select the amount and then press the drop button.
A prop of the item will be put down on the ground with an animation and as you can see, you press G to pick it up.
 

 

 
 

CAR INVENTORY
You have to sit INSIDE the car in any seat to be able to see your car inventory.
/inv or toggle F7
 
You can drag from/to your inventory or SHIFT Right click on the item in your inventory or the cars inventory to move the item in between.
Item will stay in your car until you remove it from your car, so if you stash a donut in the car and park your car, that donut will still be in there when you take out the car.
 

 
 
 
HOUSE INVENTORY
While inside your home either do /inv or toggle F7 and just as the Car inventory you’ll have your home's inventory on the right hand side. Same thing as the Car, move the items from or to your inventory with the same keys. Items will persist through rapture etc. Selling the home will remove all items. Tenants can touch your stuff!

No more soon™!
 
On March 21st our much anticipated inventory system will be going live! For this to happen, our servers will be going down between 3-4am on the day for maintenance and will be back up by rapture with our new inventory system providing there are no issues during the process.
 
The new inventory system will have a much needed and required improved data structure to work. Because of this, it does mean an inventory wipe of all character and property items & weapons will be done during the downtime and is the reason we are announcing this so early. Please note this includes any cash your characters have on their person, so bank it to not lose it. Bank money will not be touched.
 
Further announcements will be made in the up coming weeks on how it all works, as well as a comprehensive list of inventory items and changes. So please hold your questions and keep an eye on this post for updates.
 
In the meantime, here are some teasers for the upcoming inventory system during development. These images are not of the final product
 
 
Easy transfer of items between inventories (Personal, vehicle, property) and to other players:
https://i.gyazo.com/c6ac8dfbbe3e9c8768e129bb80a0f1c7.mp4
Easy-to-use shortcuts (Like Ctrl + Rclick to drop), drop items on ground, pick up items:
https://i.gyazo.com/7a358063e9c4319403a11e15f2297e1e.mp4
