November is National Epilepsy Awareness Month. Yes, they say national, but everyone around the world can get into it.

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!

The old Twitch streams stopped working, I think do to how Twitch does their API now.  So, I've added a new one that seems to be working, but there is one thing I'm trying to get worked out with the dev that made the app for here.
 
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.

I know this probably won't go to the intended audience but it's worth a shot since we have new people arriving and some of them are going to be newish to RP.   
 
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 haven't been able to make the last couple of community meetings due to time and real life commitments, but I would like to open one up for the date indicated.  I know the ones in the past have been an open type of meeting and we'll stick to that again and I'll see how it goes.   
 
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!

Not all criminal activity will be investigated to this level.  There are certain guidelines in place with the departments before this level of investigation could take place.  We will not disclose this information, but we don't want you to fear doing crime.  We want players, that do major crime, to take precautions in their acts to avoid capture. 
 
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

There comes a time where everyone needs a helping hand and this is one of those times.  We have all helped out CFX in the past and he is, unfortunately, still struggling to find employment in his field of expertise.  With that being said, I'd like to ask anyone that can lend a helping hand, please donate any amount that you can, to him to keep him going.  I'm posting this for him after he came to me to let me know that he will have to leave for a short time because he is on the verge of losing his residence.  This will result in this community losing a very important and active member, admin, and dev from our team.  This is not him asking for help, this is me asking YOU to help HIM as a community.
 
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

Hey y'all !!
 
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!

[UPDATE] Who are you gonna call? 911
As of now, the functions of Respawn and Revive change based on what emergency departments are online.
 
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.

[MAJOR UPDATE] PIMP MY RIDE
But with CFX as the host, instead of Xzibit.
 
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.

If you have in-game support for your business, it is (probably) temporarily broken while we migrate to a nicer, neater, cooler system.
We should ideally have things working again by Monday. No need to reach out to us; we (devs/CoC) will contact you if we need something.
 
Properties/garages/stores should continue to function without interruption.

[UPDATE] HE GAVE ME WORMS!
Maybe you should see a doctor about that...
 
/give ID Item Name
This will give the person designated by ticket number the named item. Example  /give 12 combatpistol

This works with all weapons and items. It does not work with Debit Cards and Cellphones yet and there is no ETA on that currently.

This is already live thanks to a delayed rapture!

Greetings all!
 
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.

I just want to inform everyone that we had a new server installed today due to unforeseen issues. Everything from the old server was moved to the new one with little issues. However, since it is a new machine there are going to be some growing pains with it. It is going to take some adjusting, and you are going to see the server crash at different times (out of our control) and some are going to be unscheduled raptures. Just bare with us for the next couple of days (it might not take that long).
 
Thank you all for your understanding and support.

Hacker Hacks San Andreas Criminal Records
It was reported that in the late afternoon of the 30th of April, 2018, a hacker effectively made their way into the San Andreas government criminal database and erased over 13,000 rows of data. City engineers discovered the breach late Monday afternoon and have found that all records prior to the 7th of October, 2017 have been erased. It is currently unknown how the hacker managed to breach the government database but City Engineers are flabbergasted yet slightly impressed with their diligence. At this time, the Governor nor any city official is coming forth to speak of the matter as they are trying determine how big of a breach this. One City Engineer, who is unnamed at this time, believes that is a former member of the City Administration's mother who is known to be in I.T. It has yet to be confirmed of such allegations however, and now further information was given to the reporters. We will bring you more information as we receive it.
 
 
(OOC: A little present to everyone from the SOE Administration. All arrest and citation records were wiped from before October 7th, 2017 as they were usually improper format and didn't have the proper timestamp (which is when we started logging better). The above was a little fun read. ENJOY!)

The SoE administration has come together to create new rules as it pertains to killing your character.
 
IN THE MAJORITY OF CASES, STANDARD RULES APPLY:
Your character MUST NOT have debt of any kind (e.g., state debt, debts owned to the Chamber of Commerce, etc) Your character MUST NOT be in prison/have remaining jail time left on the clock. Your character MUST NOT have any active wants or warrants. Character death MUST NOT be "Death/Suicide By Cop". You MUST put in a Character Kill/Character Deletion request which will be reviewed and approved before character death will be granted.  
The rules above are existing, and not new.
 
However, the SoE staff has come together to create a more flexible death system to supplement (not replace) the above.
 
The additional conditions/considerations are as follows.
 
Any whitelisted member of the community can kill their character within RP, provided:
The character death was not an "RDM fest" (esp. one which could generate player reports against you or the character in question), and There must be a medic online, and The medic is the one who can pronounce death. LEOs cannot. The character in question must be known in the community. It cannot be a "throw-away" character, and The character's death must be roleplayed properly. A reasonable amount of effort must be put into the situation, scene, and death conditions. Avoid using death as an excuse to avoid consequences of your character's bad decision-making, and  Any debts owed to the killed character will be transferred to the next-of-kin (i.e., another one of your characters, where applicable), and Failure to adhere to these additional guidelines will result in denial of death for the character. Continued attempts and abuse while breaking these guidelines will result in FailRP which will lead to a ban. Even after death, you must still post in the Character Deletion request to have the dead character removed from the database in order to free a character slot for sure on your account for use.  
The intent of the new guidelines is to allow less scripted, more "organic" character death within reason. We are allowing whitelisted members more flexibility in how their character can die under certain circumstances without preapproval. It is expected that whitelisted members bring a certain caliber of RP to the server and should be allowed more leeway if a situation presents itself where character death simply makes sense in the moment.
 
We are pleased to allow these new guidelines on a trial basis.

[UPDATE] I just fell over...
 
...yes I just fell over, ignore the many dead local gang members around me. No, the bullets just grazed my arm, I'm totally fine. 

 
Now, how you were hurt, what you were hurt by, and when it happened is no mystery. Everyone has access to the ability to visually see what injury has occurred to themselves, or others. The commands for this is /triage or /triageself. This will only help your Roleplay, as you will know exactly how you or your friend were injured. Get attacked by a machete and see an injury to both hands and your chest? Well you probably put your hands up to try and block a hit to your chest. NEAT!

Medics also have access to a /examine and /examineself commands, which are to be used at the hospitals by doctors or in place of local doctors, which will show recent injuries and older injuries as well. So if a doctor wants to check on a wound you got an hour ago when you're back in the hospital, don't be surprised! 
In summary
/triage and /triageself return recent injuries Tells the location,cause,and type of injury works most reliably when all injured are 2 car lengths apart Everyone has access to these commands /examine and /examineself Tells the location,cause,and type of injury works most reliably when all injured are 2 car lengths apart Returns all injuries from the current session, and how old they are Should only be used in a hospital by doctors or "local doctors" Only medics have access to these commands /triage and /examine works on locals Yes. It does work on locals. Might want to really reconsider telling the cops that you punched someone in self defense when they were shot in the chest.

Thanks @justcfx2u for this amazing update!

 
Q&A
"works most reliably when all injured are 2 car lengths apart" - at least 2 or less than 2 or around 2?  Will people be able to tell who the injuries belong to in the chat output?
So in version 1.0, if injured people (Locals included) are less than 2 car lengths apart, you might get injuries returning unreliably or not at all. 2 car lengths or farther apart has no issues. There are also little issues if there are multiple uninjured people near by, but it's advised to keep a medical scene as clear as possible.
