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!)

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.

...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!
/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!
"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.

They say its all superstition and Friday the 13th is just another date on the calendar. Maybe they are right....or maybe not? Lets find out for ourselves this coming April 13th, which just so happens to fall on a Friday. Scientists, sponsored by McGill Brothers Industries, will monitor weather patterns, take air samples, track land/sea/air traffic patterns, and collect all available electronic data to see if there is any truth to the superstition.

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

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

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.

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.
UPDATE GOES LIVE AT 6AM

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.
