Now, the deets:
LIVE AT 6AM RAPTURE! For now, seat belts are NOT mandatory under San Andreas law. But for your health and longevity, it's most definitely a good idea to use them! The public will be notified if seat belts become required.
Real Life Correlation - This was heavily researched, taking the worst out of all vehicle accidents where data was recorded. In reality, vehicles speeding at over 100mph have an 18% chance to eject on impact, when there is no seat belt worn. That is now taken into account. If your door is missing or open, where you are seated, there is a higher chance to be ejected.
Damage Taken - This is going to take into account how fast you're going, how much you slow down, even the angle at which you impact. The ejection and damage is calculated for each passenger, but impact detection is base off the driver. So if they hit something 'in your eyes', but the driver didn't hit anything? You're good!
Damage Types - Aiming for player-based damage when it's realistic for you to have been hurt in that impact. So injury from cones on the highway? They're a thing of the past.
Controls - Your hands are busy when putting on or taking off a seat belt, just like real life. So no camera movement, turning, acceleration, or braking. If your seat belt is on, you are unable to exit the vehicle. It takes more time to put a seat belt on than it does to take it off.
Hitting Locals versus Players - Previously, there was the potential that when colliding with a local vehicle, you could potentially take less damage. That is now rectified, and all vehicles are equal.
Impacting movable objects (cones) versus objects with mass (boulders) - As previously mentioned, highway cones aren't likely to damage you. Trees that explode on impact? Your bumper gets dented, but not your head. If you're out in Sandy Shores, and run into one of the gigantic boulders on the side of the road? What would happen in real life? Yeah, it's going to hurt. Sometimes a lot. But glancing damage from a guard rail won't end you.
GUI Icon - Down next to the map, you'll see an icon when you get into the vehicle. Once your seat belt is on, the icon disappears. You will also see a /do action when someone puts on or takes off the seat belt.
Command - /seatbelt or use the K Menu
And with that, I leave you this reminder.

This is NOT:
a serial number. permanent. "traceable" to you "Probable Cause" for cops Spoofable
A way to recognize if the same person is speaking, or if someone else is trying to butt in on your conversation. A way to have a temporary "identity" (or 'voice') on the radio so you know if you're talking to the same person(s) A little ugly. Sorry.

Ah yes, the shift punch in it's natural habitat, not far from the train station.
Well, CFX took the liberty to fix what rockstar did not, and now fighting will feel a lot more realistic and people have options other than fighting back due to stunlocks.
1. Shift Punching has been made impossible.
*Punching has just enough of a cooldown
2. Stunlocks from being punched are gone, leaving you with more options to end a fight.
*You can fight back, you could run away, you can pull weapons.

So you bought that one-seater motorcycle, with the intent never having to give your friend a ride anywhere. Buuut... Well, now you want to sell. Before, we would have to put a request in on the forums, but no more!
How do you sell it? Hop into the saddle, and have the potential customer stand next to your vehicle. Then simply type /givecar ID, and like magic... boom! Motorcycle sold! Now that you're flush with cash (you DID remember to charge them for the vehicle before giving them the car, right?), maybe a local auto dealer can benefit from your fortune!
tl;dr - Get on the motorcycle, customer stands next to motorcycle, you type /givecar ID, park it up, and you're done!
This will be active at rapture in four hours.

GSTyrant will be the contact for PR members and manage that area. Nick will oversee character resets, character deletions, and gangs. @justcfx2u is the contact admin for CoC related issues, along side with @Danutz_B
We'd like to thank everyone that has applied. If you were not chosen for the admin role, your apps are being reviewed for possible game admin positions. @Harrison will be in touch with you if your app happens to be a good match. Hopefully, he'll be able to make contact in a timely manner to those for the position, but please be patient.
Again, congrats to the ones we've chosen and thank you to the ones that took the time to apply. Please, do not be discouraged by not being selected for that particular role. Positions like this could open at any given time and we may refer to apps that we already have.

If I see this later in the logs, you will be permanently banned.
There may be other exploits related to getting into vehicles. This is a gentle reminder to report all bugs and exploits principally for the betterment of the code and community.

This month, all my Twitch income, be it donations, cheers, or subs, etc, will be donated to my local (or a larger) epilepsy foundation with hopes it may go towards research and education.
Tho goal of Epilepsy Awareness Month is not necessarily to raise money, but to educate the public in regards to epilepsy and seizure disorders. I urge anyone who takes time to support the many streamers on Evol to stop into my stream for a short bit to ask me anything you want so I can share my experiences with epilepsy, and the knowledge I've gained about it. I'm not shy and I don't take offense easily. One of the best ways I, and many others I've spoken with have learned to deal with having epilepsy is by laughing, so bonus points for seizure jokes. I often times find myself telling stories about my experiences (or what my wife has told me about my experiences) as if they were a joke with a punch line. Many only know seizures as convulsions, but I would love the chance to educate on other types of seizures. Epilepsy may effect someone so little as to barely cause an issue in their life, while others may have trouble with daily tasks. As of 2015 1.2% of the US population has epilepsy. While they may feel like an extra in The Walking Dead, most can go on with regular life and no one will know the difference.
Fact: Each year epilepsy actually kills 22,000 to 24,000 in the United States alone. That's 1 in 1000 with epilepsy that die unexpectedly each year. Let that soak in a little.
On that note, it's time to take my meds so I can feel like a zombie.
I want to thank the owner and members of EPCG for the support!
EDIT: Link to twitch account in case signature doesn't work.

If you go to your account settings, scroll down on the left and click Twitch. Login with Twitch (can opt to use that or your regular login) and then authorize the EPCG app. This is suppose to add you to the stream list on the homepage and it will show when live. Also, it is suppose to put a Twitch tab in your profile so people can watch you from there or click on the stream on the homepage and watch it while on the site. Testing it out, it's not auto adding and I have a message in to the dev about it.
Anyway, if you want to start the process of getting your channel listed, which will be easier now for others to find, follow the directions up top.

If you are watching a stream or a vod you can not use what you see when you are in character. A few examples...
- if. while watching a stream, you see locations for criminal activity, such as pickup or drop-off spots, YOU now know this information but your character does not.
- if you are watching a cop streaming and you are watching how fast they get from point A to point B, you know this info but your character does not.
- if you see someone in a stream that your character has never met, you can not then act like you know that person when you run into them in game. You might know who the person is, but your character does not.
It can be easy to mix up what you see OOC with what happens IC. Please be conscientious of the difference and try to keep the two separate.
And of course do not watch a stream if you're playing on the same server as the stream you're watching. Watching a stream on pub1? You can simultaneously play on pub2 but not on pub1.

I ask that this doesn't turn into a dev suggestion meeting because it takes up a huge amount of time and is best to be put on the forums so the devs can go back and look at what the community is suggesting. It is open to questions and concerns and we will try our best to give you a straight and open answer (if we have one for you). The voice of the community is very important and we have slacked in holding these meetings on a regular basis. Hopefully with the placement of the new admin team, these can occur on a monthly basis. These meetings aren't open to arguments, but discussions and conversation about solutions to issues/problems.
It is not required that you stay the entire time. If you want to hop on and take off after you get the opportunity to state your concern or ask your questions, you may leave at any time. The meeting will start at 2 PM EST and will end promptly at 4 PM EST and will be held in the community meeting channel on our Teamspeak. I will record the meeting as well, in case you cannot make it, and will post it here on this event date so it can be referenced at any time. I look forward to speaking with you all and hope to see you there!

Outline of what can be investigated:
Currently can investigate cell phone text/cell phone number owner/voice calls. Fingerprints on weapons/cars/discarded items (pretty much anything that can retain a fingerprint) Fingerprints can only be used of the person has a prior criminal record. It's assumed you were fingerprinted at processing and/or at the jail. GPS tracking of phone is allowed if a warrant is granted to do so. Bleeter - a warrant can be issued to reveal the owner of the Bleeter account. This is used when suspected criminal activities is being communicated through social media. Security camera footage from state owned buildings (locations that aren't player owned) can be looked through. Player owned locations would require a warrant to be granted if the business owners doesn't cooperate. A physical camera must be present prior to crime for camera footage to be taken. The state can install cameras at any given time and place - be aware of your surroundings. Business records can be obtained such as parking garages. Parking garages are assumed to have monthly parking passes which logs your car checking in and out of the garage. This would also include guard houses - i.e., airport, port area, etc., anything you drive through a gate or by a guard booth, it is assumed manned at all times. Ballistics data - weapons and projectiles are submitted to a crime lab to match projectiles to determine if it's the same weapon. Projectiles can be collected from

If you were thinking of donating to the EPCG community, via the homepage, please revert your donation to here. I won't disclose how much exactly will save him, but it's enough that it will take this great community to come together and help one of our own out. I've been here before in life, without having the support and strength and generosity of a large and great community like this, and it's not a pleasant feeling to be on the edge of losing everything.
Any amount will help when you add up all of the fantastic members that we have here. So please, consider helping out a member that commits a lot of time to the community to bring us new and fresh content on our servers, all while trying to keep his head above water. That is a commitment that I cannot let go unknown and without trying to find the help needed.
Now, let's show how strong of a community we are! https://paypal.me/justcfx2u

We would like to host yet another community meeting, this Sunday the 26th of August, at 2 PM EST.
Last meeting we had a different format. Instead of having you write down your questions before hand, and them running through them, without the chance for others to chime in or discuss the subject. We had it more as a open forum, where on turn people could bring thing up to the community. And the feedback we got was that you really liked that. So we are gonna bring that back.
So just like last time this is how it is gonna work:
Starting at 2 EST, staff will be in a channel on TS and you are free to come and go as you please. During this time, you are allowed to voice your opinion and concerns and ask questions and get whatever it is off your chest out in the open air. This of course will all be within moderation and community rules still apply of being respectful to one another etc. etc. Anyone who disobeys rules and shows disrespect will be dismissed. Our biggest goal here is to socialize, voice concerns and find answers to improve YOUR community and YOUR home. Please come with your constructive questions and thoughts and we look forward to seeing y'all there!

WHEN EMS ARE ON
-the revive function has been removed from all LEOS. They can still stabilize, drag, etc. like normal when EMS are on.
-civilians and cops cannot /respawn when EMS are on.
WHEN NO EMS ARE ON
-All functions remain the same with a small adjustment to spawn times.
But Danutz_B, how do people respawn if they are trapped on top of a mountain, in a bush, in a vulture's nest, under two suns, on fire, and EMS can't reach them? Call 911 and RP that you are unable to be found.
All EMS personal have access to a command, /evac # . This number is the player ID you see on the player list. This command only works when the individual's respawn timer is up, and when used automatically evacuates them to the nearest medical center.
If you are in a RP situation where calling 911 is not an option to let EMS know that you are ready to respawn and no EMS is on the way to find you, you may use OOC help chat to tell EMS the option to /evac you.

Starting after an early rapture that will happen not long after this post is live, you will finally be able to trick out your car to such extremes, your car will no longer be the reason you can't keep a lady...but your empty wallet might be.
There is a new UI when customizing, and even for when you are repairing. Not only is this way cooler than spamming the horn and waiting impatiently, but you can repair or customize from your bank account. WHAT!? LUNACY! CHAOS! MANIA I TELL YOU!
... in fact, you can't even use cash anymore. Who even carries cash these days? Peasants, that's who.
When you select customize... that's when the magic happens.
Some cars will have more options than others, and a few left out options will be added in time. This is going to be expensive, plan, save, invest in your car. Even painting isn't free anymore, or even reverting to stock parts. Because of this ALL CARS HAVE BEEN REVERTED TO STOCK COLOURS AND PARTS. I know this is an inconvenience, but it makes this feature implementation much simpler and fair.
When you are done, just request your quote, and decide if you want to pay. If you don't pay, your car reverts and you can come back later when you're ready.
Now for the important details.
There is no way to save a design for later. Write things down before you exit the menu. You cannot customize a car you do not own -- Even if it's your roommate's Even if you rented it. Unless you're a customs shop owner (or employee), then you can customize any vehicle owned, stolen, or rented. Keep an eye out for custom shop advertisements! Pressing enter is how you add parts to your cart If you don't want a part changed, highlight the part you had previously before pressing backspace (preferred). If you don't hit 'enter' it won't be added to your cart, but unless you press backspace it it possible to visually have a part selected which isn't actually in your cart. When you complete the checkout process, only items in your cart will actually be applied to the vehicle. All other visual only parts will be stripped. Customizing can only be done at customs shops. Places like Glass Heroes are just repair shops. If a shop owner or employee customizes the car for you, it is much cheaper for them, but they can charge you whatever they feel like. THE FULL BLACK OUT TINT IS ILLEGAL NOW. IT IS CONSIDERED UNROADWORTHY AND IS A TICKETABLE OFFENSE. ALL OWNED CARS HAVE BEEN REVERTED TO STOCK. You can design your vehicle for free, but you have to pay to apply the parts permanently. Customization DOES NOT increase the repair cost of the vehicle. Even if you quadruple the value of the vehicle, this will not affect the overall repair cost.

We would like to host a community meeting this Sunday (2018-06-03) at 2 EST.
But wait! We are changing it up this time. Instead of doing the usual you post questions, then a senior staff member reads them off and answers them, we (the staff) really wanted to engage with you guys and have an actual dialogue. The staff feel that it's important that we allow our community members to actually speak and express concerns rather than just a forum post. Our main goal with this is to allow you all to have conversation, express concerns and grievances, as well as mingle. Our staff would love to get to know you all better so this is one of the best ways to do it!
So how does this work?
Starting at 2 EST, staff will be in a channel on TS and you are free to come and go as you please. During this time, you are allowed to voice your opinion and concerns and ask questions and get whatever it is off your chest out in the open air. This of course will all be within moderation and community rules still apply of being respectful to one another etc. etc. Anyone who disobeys rules and shows disrespect will be dismissed.
