    The Semi-Serious roleplay update is on track to be released this weekend. Depending on how this week goes the update will probably be released on Sunday afternoon (24 August 2014 - GMT time).

    As stated in this thread, the following will happen On Launch:

    - A variety of changes and updates will make their way onto the server.
    - Most of the updates are new systems that have been put in places to encourage more RP (amongst other things of course)
    - Things will not be balanced. Balancing will happen over time and things will change constantly as we prepare the server to be fully released (See Short Term on this thread). This is when the server will be wiped.
    - There will be bugs. Think of the server going back into beta for a few weeks.​
    - Server will be officially renamed to Semi-Serious.
    - Gamemode name will stay the same.
    - Map will stay the same.
    - No inventory/money wipe will occur on launch. We need to make sure everything is ready before this (Ie. Our goals are achieved if regards to the economy. Eg. Guns are more rare. No point wiping everything and then finding out that guns are still too easy to get).

    I must remind you that you shouldn't expect the entire server 'seriousness' to change overnight. The change from Lite RP to Semi-Serious (and all that comes with it) is a process that will take months to achieve. However as of day 1 of launch, we will start being more strict and enforce Semi-Serious rules and roleplay - adapt or die (or banned instead of die in this case).

    I'm sure everyone is very excited about the new update (I know that the staff and I am), we're almost there.

    See you on launch day,
    Simple

    Are the rules being updated for the Semi-Serious update? Or are we just more strictly enforcing the ones we already have.

    A few rules will be changed on launch day, but most of the changes will occur as time goes by.

    Our rules a already more strict then most Semi-Serious servers out there, so probably not too many changes in the rules will happen.
    EDIT: god dammit simple

    Will get to that when the time comes. I haven't started work on it yet.
    It will just look similar to the bank, expect you'll only be able to withdraw certain items.

    Reading the ban appeals section, you'd think they were the same thing.

    Looking forward to it - maybe one day we'll see people (mainly gangs) actually using pistols... One day.

    Semi-Serious will be released tomorrow (Sunday, 24 August 2014).

    The server will be down for the majority of the tomorrow while the server is setup.
    So from around 11:00 (GMT+2) the server will be down.

    Launch time will be announced tomorrow, but expect it to be around 18:00 (GMT+0).


    Depending on how things go, admins (and possibly Premium) may be given early access to test that nothing is significantly broken (Note that if something is horribly broken and cannot be fixed in time, it will be just disabled. It won't delay the server launch at all. There is a very, very low chance of this happening though, as everything is working fine from my personal testing)

    You have to do the time zone conversion. I'm on UTC -6 so that puts it all being done for me around noon. My UTC time zone is central time zone for US residents
