New members, please read this!! 03/02/17To all new members - welcome to EPCG. This is the home of State of Emergency and our members play many different games. Please take time to look over the forums and become familiar with the different sections. General chat about SoE belongs in the SoE General chat, help belongs in Help section, etc. DO NOT PM an admin to discuss your SoE server ban or questions about "How do I play this?" All info can be found by taking 5 mins to use the search function in the upper right or going to the perspective forums and look for your answer. Can't find the info? Post your concern in the proper forums. We have a public relations team if you must contact our staff, this is where you start. If they cannot answer your question or address your concern, the PR member will forward it to the correct person. As to ban appeals - this is a community. I can assure you that if your first post on the forums is a ban appeal, this does not look great. It shows that your not here for the community and to meet new people, make friends, and contribute. Your viewed as a fly through player and you won't make a great impression on the community when they see this. Be active here and you'll find plenty of friendly gamers that play a variety of games. Chances are, you'll find new friends to game with and enjoy your games that much more. EPCG has a solid admin team behind them and we do our best to address all issues in a timely manner. With that said, please keep in mind that we have jobs, family, real life, and we'd like to enjoy our gaming time as well. Please use the staff chain of command, starting with the Public Relations team. You can save yourself from getting banned by reading and knowing our forum rules and our SoE server rules. Failure to read this will ultimately lead to your perma-ban without question. Another thing that will help you succeed in remaining here is common sense. If you have none, you might as well leave now before the members chew you up and spit you out. This is a mature group of players and respect is expected to the members and staff. We work hard to bring you a one stop place for your PC gaming time!
Devs don't have time to stop and assist every single person when a crash happens. Report it on the forums and do not tag them. It gets viewed daily and reported through our chain of custody. Please read below explaining why FiveM crashes are stellar. At this point, the devs have received authorization from Administration that if they enter their SDND channel or continue to bother them, they are authorized to remove you from the room up to but not excluding a ban from the TS which could lead to further action on your account. Respect their workspace. Thanks.
The American Heart Association helps fund research for new treatments, provides programs and services for survivors and their families. The reason I'm putting this donation goal up is because my Son's school is having a fund raiser with a goal of $1,000 USD per kid. He's been personally effected by losing someone with heart issues. It's a long story, but I'll try my best to keep it short... Their mother (my x-wife - we've both remarried to another now) had triplets with her husband. No it wasn't planned nor expected. Out of the three, two of them suffered from extreme medical issues since birth and out of those two, one passed away last year when he was only 7 months old, from heart issues and severe seizures. The other one with medical issues, also has some heart issues and has suffered other medical issues that has had him in a children's hospital most of his life. This affected my son and daughter that are too young to unfortunately have had to go through this at their age. The two surviving babies are just over 1 years old now and my son is dead set on reaching this $1000 goal. He's so willing to do so, that he asked me to give him all of his money out of his wallet to give to this cause. I haven't told him that I'm going to attempt to raise this money through this great community of gamers. I know this could be possible with the support that everyone shows towards their peers and the donations that come in to help keep everything going here. I ran a donation for something my wife volunteered for and we raise something like $230 is just a 3-4 day period. We can do this and I'm really hoping to be able to provide the full goal to him with your support. I'm going to shut the donations down that come to the community to focus all funds into this fund raiser for the American Heart Association.

Firemodes and Safety Mode: All automatic weapons have a safety mode on CAPS which blocks you from inadvertently shooting it. All automatic weapons can cycle between fire modes (single shot, burst fire, full auto) with the button Y. The Police AR15 is now single fire, but with the capability to turn on safety with CAPS. This is to reflect a real police AR15. Recoil All guns have recoil now, use the new fire modes to your advantage. If there is any gun which you think handles too good or too bad, don't worry about posting it in here, but this thread is not about discussing the changes made to the police AR15, if at all only its recoil.

As there has been a update and some people are experiencing crashes we need to start collecting data on whats causing this.
Please post in the following format here:
A screenshot of the error. Make sure you expand / click See details
A link to where we can download the DMP file. This file is located in Fivem Application Data\crashes and it should be the latest crash file. You may at this time also clean up this to save some free space if you have had alot of crashes
Keep posts in this format and do not ask anything else here as I want this thread to be focusing on the problems and not theories.

I'm sure you've all noticed that you can walk and run in cuffs now.
You can also get into a vehicle while cuffed, but you cannot swim while cuffed. Turns out it's really hard to go up for air.
Your friend can also help you get out of cuffs, if they posses a lock pick... This will take a significant amount of time, you cannot move without interrupting it, and if any Locals see you doing this, they will absolutely report you and your location to the police.
You can walk and run in cuffs, you might trip if you run You can get into a vehicle when it cuffs Swimming in cuffs kills you You can be lockpicked out of cuffs Someone has to have a lockpick Neither of you can move while it's happening If Locals see you they will call the police
Reports the activity and the location
You can always try lockpicking again if you need to relocate.
Thanks to @justcfx2u for working a ridiculous amount of time on this to make sure it was something that was both functional, and fair. Thanks to @Pinkerchu for suntanning on server, spit balling, testing, and breaking stuff as per usual.

Check it for yourself :D. Civs have one coming as well, but you guys get to look awesome pulling out your piece first!!
There is now a keybind for a radio animation!
Currently it's bound to left alt, but you can change it to be the same button as your teamspeak push to talk. To do this, go into your keybind settings, and change the Character Selector hotkey. This also plays a soundclip!
If your ped has a shoulder radio, it will have this animation when you press this button
-In Game Mic Clicks are optional
-Z lets you put your hands up again
-H rests your hand on your pistol, holding right click will quick draw it.

Using /stripillegal or /removeillegal will properly remove all illegal weapons and inventory items off of nearby persons. No more need to send them all the way down to the state pen for being a good Samaritan.
Report any bugs / weirdness here. Update goes live at next rapture (Feb 28th, 6 PM EST).

There are now two stations that are live radio streams from the internet. We can actually replace any radio station in game with a radio stream that's in the .ogg format! Go ahead and try out these new stations and get your grove on! If it doesn't load right away for you or your passengers(no sound) change the station and change it back again. It may take a few times. The song names and radio channel names you see in the middle of the ring do not reflect what you'll hear.
Here is a list of some radio stations in the proper format. http://dir.xiph.org/by_format/Ogg_Vorbis
Credit goes to @Snowthisway for improving on this script and making it happen! https://forum.fivem.net/t/release-js-radio/52121

Instead of using /stay, you automatically have your seatbelt on when you're in the car. To switch to the driver's seat after the seat is occupied, you do so through the K menu!!
Seatbelts are automatic
Seatbelts should work for 2-seater vehicles
Moving to the driver's seat is k-menu "Driver's Seat" or /driver
Thanks to @justcfx2u for this change, and to @GamerJules for tirelessly testing it.

So while we were all digging in deep to our days of our lives drama, we had new things!
While I don't have a screenshot to show what it looks like, because I would need friends awake at this hour to bestow this upon you, I do have a description on how it works!
All marine vessels have radar
yes, even jetskis... for some reason
Only detects other marine vessels (occupied or unoccupied)
Works up to 2 miles away
Available on 'K'-menu or /radar
This is all visible as blips on your mini map.
Hoist the Mainsail!
The marquis sailboat can now use eco-friendly wind power!
While the boat is using wind power, you will have full control of the boat as if the engine was on, but with the engine off!
Engine can be turned off
or use engine power with the wind!
10-20 knots in calm weather (inadvisably fast in a storm)
/sails up, /sails down, /sails true, /sails false, or k menu
DON'T LEAVE! You may be going fast enough that you'll bail into the water!
but if you get too far away, the sails will collapse on their own
UPDATES ARE ALREADY LIVE
Thanks @justcfx2u for this update, and to @OhPapi for the inspiration <3.

Your vehicle radio is always on the radio frequency used by the job, but you can change your personal radio to any channel and still hear the job radio while inside the vehicle. If you want to reply, however, you will have to change to that radio.
To break it down
Tow Radio Channel is till /rc 5
Trucking radio Channel is /rc 10
Your vehicle radio is always on the appropriate job radio channel and cannot be changed.
you can have a different personal radio frequency than the vehicles frequency, but you will have to switch your personal radio back to reply.
If a personal radio frequency matches the vehicle radio frequency, it will not duplicate the messages while inside the vehicle
Thanks @AstroNaught for going a little extra when I said "wouldn't it be cool if towing had its own radio frequency."

Trucking is finally here and boy is it fun! To get started, you just need to head down to the commercial dealership and get yourself a truck! There are 3 options, all within different price ranges. My favorite is the phantom custom, but the phantom and the hauler might be more within a starting budget.
You own your own truck, you pay for your own gas, you collect your welfare cheque and live the trucker dream!
Commercial Dealership 1 of many trucking job pickups.
Once you pick up the job, a trailer will be marked for pickup. All you have to do is back it on up, pick up the trailer, and go to your first stop!
UPDATE WILL BE LIVE AFTER RAPTURE!!!
Thanks to @AstroNaught for this awesome job update, and thanks to @EgoViking for hard work on stops and flavor text. As well, a big thank you to all our testers!!

Boats now have anchors! This will keep them from drifting (though a heavy storm might still push you somewhat) and give you more stability in your otherwise out of control life.
To raise or drop your anchor, you need to be as stationary as possible, and use the K menu!
/anchor and /anchor false still work if you want to get your type on.

Cruise Control has now been overhauled! Not only do all vehicles with functioning cruise control handle and drive significantly better (should feel no different than if you are accelerating yourself.) But cruise control functions slightly differently. When you set your cruising speed with Y, it sets that speed in yellow right by your speedometer. While cruise control is enabled, you can accelerate past that marked speed, and letting go of the gas will just drop you right back down to your set cruising speed. Pressing S or space to brake, or pressing Y will turn off cruise control.
For emergency vehicles, you can set your cruising speed before putting your lights on, and it won't cancel if you press Y to cycle your sirens.
Since using cruise control is the most fuel efficient away to drive, embrace it!
Thanks to @justcfx2u for this awesome update and thank you to the many testers who participated.

This is for you all to discover how they are different as the map icon for drug pickups has been removed. We've made this change to encourage people to roleplay with each other, and find out how to get into criminal activity organically. If we see the drug pickup spots mentioned frequently on bleeter, or in any ooc capacity, we will change them and they may be harder to find in the future. Currently there are two spots, and I encourage you all to figure out how to find them IC!
But that isn't the only way they are different, which you will find out, IN GAME!
THESE CHANGES ARE ALREADY LIVE!!!!
Credits go to @AstroNaught for the amazing and beautifully thought out changes you'll only see, and to @EgoViking and @Pinkerchu for helping design.

TOW DRIVERS AND SAFR HAVE A BUNCH OF NEW COMMANDS
Lately there has been an issue with vehicles remaining flammable even after they are no longer leaking fuel. Tow drivers and SAFR now can /wash a vehicle to make it safer to drive, but they MUST GET INTO THE DRIVER'S SEAT FOR IT TO TAKE EFFECT. Own that entity for a short while, and the driver won't burst into flames!
This also removes dirt and other substances from your vehicle. Nice and clean!!
Fuel Puddles? No problem. Tow and SAFR now carry kitty litter to clean up oil and fuel. It's super effective!
Got a full tank of gas, and nervous about it? Well, if you're a tow driver or part of the SAFR, you are able to drain the fuel in a tank of a vehicle, so you can tow that thing without worry.
ALL CHANGES ARE NOW LIVE!!!
Credit goes to @justcfx2u for super cool and creative ways to fix bugs, and @Eilytres for making such an annoying meme.

Fatal car crashes are here! No longer will you drive under the false belief of immortality. If your vehicle is taking a beating, then you'll be taking a beating. Cars have been made tougher since the fuel leaking update, but as a trade off, you're now softer...kind of.
Your health loss is based off body damage in a vehicle, and you can die while in a vehicle. Which can lead to some interesting results.
Here you see the mythical unicorn, incapacitated with her foot still on the gas.
I hope this encourages safer driving for civilians, criminals, and emergency services.
Here is a video demonstration by CFX

Sandking, SandkingXL, Bodhi and BobcatXL all have the ability to haul one motorcycle in the bed. The command is the same /tow but it does not come with any repair functions. It's currently optimized to haul dirt bikes but other bikes will fit with some clipping. Of course if you are hauling a long motorcycle you can always lower the rear gate.
NEW TOW TRUCK
Roughly $70k at commercial or Harmony dealerships. It's all terrain, 4x4, all the good stuff. But it's slow. It's meant for off road towing and should stay away from the freeways. Functions the same as the other two truck.
Let us know if there are any issues with clipping, or anything else. Thanks to @EgoViking for this neato update!!!!

It didn't seem to make an impact on who joins what server -- as was the point of the experiment -- and people seem to miss it. So it has been returned to normal. If you don't see it right away, give it time, clear your browser cache, or both. That change is live and most people should see it right now.
The Next Experiment is up.
What happens when the public servers are unavailable? People flee to Whitelist.
So, for a period of a few days, we're experimenting with artificial scarcity. pub2 and pub3 will be down, leaving pub1 and whitelist.
ONLY WHITELIST AND PUB1 WILL BE UP
The goal of this experiment is:
Do we have enough whitelisted people who want to play with opther whitelisted members on the whitelisted server, especially when pub1 is full?
Will we not see any people on whitelist, and instead get a 30 person queue?
It's hard to say, but that's why we need to experiment.
Some things that have become apparent to me:
There is still a passion for whitelist, by a number of members, and want to see it revived
There are a number of members looking for higher-quality RP
There are a number of members looking to escape shitlords which seem to be on pub -- though there are a few who like it.
With anti-cheat becoming stronger, we've also put back the public listing of pub1 to keep new people coming into the community.
Hold on tight, this might be amazing, or it might be just plain crazy. Probably both.

In high demand by folks of all walks, we now have binoculars. Looking real close without getting an outlawed weapon charge has never been easier!
You can now buy Binoculars at any hardware store! To use them, just press and hold the Home key on your keyboard. The Advanced Binoculars zoom in with mouse wheel. If you own both pairs, you will always pull out the Advanced Binoculars.
/a DUDE, WHERE'S MY CAR
Where's your car dude?
Good news everyone! The valets fixed their printers. You finally get parking stubs!
Not only do you get the location of your car, and license plate, but for insurance purposes the valet also writes down the condition of your car, so you can stop blaming them for your vehicles condition and fuel.
To view this menu, just type /valet
Binoculars are already live, Valet is live at 6pm!
Credits for Binoculars go to @Snowthisway and @justcfx2u. They both made code for Binoculars, and it turned out that merging their code solved the bugs they each had independently. Valet is all @justcfx2u

Woah, what's this? An Update? Come on guys, our dev team has been working hard!
Mo' Pumps Mo' Problems
No more 8 lost members crowding around the mythological octopump, all pumps now work! This is how fueling your car works now that we live in a future, with a menu!
That's right, with a menu!
Like before, you press "E", which now brings up the menu you see above. You first select the bank account you plan to pay from (no longer does the pump accept cash), and then the maximum payment you intend to make for gas. After you press enter on your maximum payment amount, the option to pick up the nozzle will appear, and pressing enter on that will allow you tostart fueling your vehicle!
Facing the vehicle, you press enter on start fueling, and you will see the amount and cost start counting up. You will stop fueling if you press enter on stop fueling, turn away from the vehicle, run out balance from what you authorized to pay, or fill the tank. You can continue fueling after you stop, or even fuel a different car.
Leaving the gas station, or entering a vehicle will close the menu completely and end your fueling session.

The Court House's construction is finally complete! Just flex your E muscle near the double doors, and you will find yourself in a world of cold hard justice being served.
Access to this interior is available at the court house on Occupation Ave, and will be tweaked over time.

The same interior is used for all PDs. If Deputy McLane hops into the jail from Sandy Shores, he might bump into Captain Major who is processing someone from Vespucci. But, when you both exit through the same warp point, the system is smart enough to dump you back out where you came from.
As well, if you go down the hallway, and press E between the two double doors, you will access the helipad, if the PD you entered has one.
This a work in progress, some things will change, of course. As well, there is a prison interior that will be available soon.
