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:
Easy-to-use shortcuts (Like Ctrl + Rclick to drop), drop items on ground, pick up items:
Easy item-stack management (Split/combine stacks):

This upcoming weekend (Saturday/Sunday), we will be performing Onesync testing on pub3. As I'm sure you've all seen, we've been performing multiple tests over the course of the last couple months, which all seem to be improving from an analytical standpoint. This test will be the largest of these, accumulating a number of changes @war_driven and I have made over the course of the last few weeks.
A general list of things we've changed for this upcoming test:
Reduce population density of peds/vehicles to allow better sync Improve distance culling of unnecessary models/players/item to improve sync (And possibly reduce texture loss) Change some VOIP settings to attempt to mitigate dropout in VOIP Better back-end crash logging and reporting for any crashes that occur Updated Onesync to a more modern version with a couple various bugfixes
Here's what you can do to help with this testing:
Get on the testing server! When we were asking people to play on the Onesync server last time, we got a number of responses resembling "Onesync is buggy, I don't feel like it." We're making changes for a reason and these changes need to be tested. Please assist us in testing them. Play just as you would any other day, ignoring the fact you're on a Onesync server. Don't be 'soft' on the server, but also act normally. Spamming a command 100 times a second to see if you can break something is not what this test is about. Play by the rules. This is a live server running on a live database. Any bans will carry over, as will any changes to your character (Barring major server issues). Report bugs Report any bugs/crashes you encounter during Onesync (Please try to reproduce first) with the prefix '[1S BUG]' in the bug reporting section.
During the weekend, we will keep pub1/pub2 up, however, we ask that you use pub3 unless issues cause it to become unplayable. We appreciate your dedication to helping us test Onesync for the future of SoE and server development.

Within the next update you'll be seeing a large change when it comes to joining in on the server with an already made character that owns a home.
After a long discussion among staff we decided we wanted to try and get more flow when it comes to coming into the city.
Logging in with a character that owns a home or more for the first time after the update:
- You will be forced to choose between Banner Hotel, Harmony or Paleto Motels.
- You will need to go to your home (or one of your homes) that you want to make your primary home.
- Hit E at the door to open the menu and then select it to become your primary, as you can see you can de-select it if you wish to select another home.
- The next time you come into the server with this character you will now no longer be able to spawn anywhere but your primary selected home.
- You can only have one (1) Primary Residence per character.
- All PD/SO/EMS and SASP spawn points have been removed with this process.
What does this mean?
- We want to see more movement on the server, this means you will actually have to wake up at home (Or if you have not selected a home at one of the Hotel/Motels) and drive to wherever you want to go, if you are a LEO/EMS, spawn at home drive to your nearest SO/PD/Hospital and start your day. And with that said the Departments have made sure that there is parking spaces for everyone (Only available for LEO/EMS)

We are delighted to finally show off our launcher to our community!
It's still a work in progress and a lot of the main features are not yet implemented.
Download the latest launcher: Attached to this thread! Install the launcher - Currently installation does not matter. In future versions you will need to install it alongside FiveM. Verify yourself. (Below) Run the launcher Wait for FiveM to do it's things. You will sit on the main page of FiveM for a few seconds then it will connect. Profit?
How to use the Launcher:
For now usage is very easy. Authenticate yourself here: VERIFICATION Run the launcher and connect to the server you wish to use!
For now authentication is external and runs every few hours, or can be ran upon request ( @war_driven )
Important things to note:
The launcher in it's current state is phase one. It might not be the prettiest of launchers but it will get there over time.
It's functional at this stage and that is all we care about. Feedback from the community is appreciated.
What is the SoE Launcher?
The SoE Launcher is to serve as a centralized point for all SoE Game servers (GTA-RP).
In it's current state the launcher is purely that, there is limited communication between the Launcher and the Gateway.
What is this "Gateway"?
The gateway is a separate server away from SoE Game servers to handle verification for client connections.
This keeps the additional load off the SoE Game servers.
The Gateway is the main key behind the launcher. Nothing moves through the network without it's authorization. Something every player will now need.
Why do we need to be authorized? How is it any different from White listing?
Authorization is super easy, just tell the gateway who you are and what you'll be connecting from (IP & HEX ID for the moment).
Unlike whitelist we're not asking you to prove to us why you'd like to play on SoE.
Will I need to be authorized for every server?
For the time being Pub1 will remain open and it will not be sitting behind the gateway. This means we cannot guarantee your playing experience on Pub1.
If you really want to play on Pub1 you can.
Pub2 and Pub3 will be sitting behind the Gateway and through the launcher.
Is the launcher safe?
The launcher is completely safe, once installed you will notice it checking for updates periodically. This is completely normal.
As needed updates will be pushed to the launcher, downloaded and installed automatically.
Only download the launcher from the sources we provide.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask them!

Where: Teamspeak (ts.evolpcgaming.com)
What: Community Meeting, talking about the future of Whitelist
Why: The whitelist and how to manage it has been a hot topic for a long time. I've publicly pledged to reform it several times since taking the lead for it some months ago, and the PR team have worked with me to look at some alternatives & improvements as well as some radical options - up to and including total removal of the whitelist system. PR have reached a unanimous recommendation however we recognise any change to this system is significant enough to warrant a community-wide discussion. We will do so at this event; which is timed to allow everyone to attend (although I recognise that Oceanic players may have to get up quite early. Sorry!) Feedback gathered during this community meeting will inform any decision made. Thank you - please feel free to show up unannounced, or to RSVP at your pleasure.

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.

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!

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?
