Welcome to Evol PC Gaming!
Top content from across the community, hand-picked by us.
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.

@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'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...

The only permissible vehicle is a stock Cheval Surge (Available at PDM on Adam’s Apple and Power or via player dealerships with stock). No upgrades of any kind are allowed in the race. Mechanics will be verifying every vehicle before the start. Cosmetic options are allowed. This is a team race consisting of two laps around a closed course across the state. Both members of the team will be in the vehicle. Both team members must be in the vehicle and not downed to win. After the first lap, driver and passenger will swap positions in a designated area (the starting area) and proceed with their second lap. The first Surge across the finish line at the end of the second lap will be declared the winner (once the vehicle is inspected by a mechanic again). Signed up teams may include a third member as a reserve. Teams must be signed up before October 23rd.
Teams Sign up below (And declare your color, as we may have commentary)
PRIZES TBD, 1st Prize minimum value: $100,000 each team member
There will, as always, be special prizes for certain conditions being met.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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 are encouraging everyone to get on and test OneSync whenever they can. Pick it as your preferred server to play on. It's listed and ready to go.
This round of OneSync aims to shape SoE and bring it up and running with other servers with OneSync. We want more than 32 players on a server.
We're running an entirely new system setup to ensure stability while running OneSync.
Things we want reports on:
Actions not working as they are intended. Vehicles being local towed Any errors you see in F8 (See the list of things we know about)
Issues we know currently:
Errors related to soe-ng - Ignore. These do not present an issue MWS location data not transmitting - To be fixed (Hopefully) next rapture.
IMPORTANT: For LEO/EMS please use "PUB3" as your OPs for TS and MSW.

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

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.
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.
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.
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!

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)
