    The roleplay server will officially be wiped and updated this weekend - on Saturday, 11 April 2015.

    The server will unavailable from this Thursday Friday evening, so if any of you want to say your goodbyes to Downtown, do so before then.

    For more info on the wipe:
    http://chronet.com/threads/gmod-roleplay-wipe-coming-soon-and-new-year-update.4844/

    Premium will go on sale during the initial launch week of the server.
    There will also be a video competition shortly after launch. More details on that soon.

    I hope you're all as excited as I am for this big milestone in Chronet history.

    Until next time,
    Simple

    Gonna miss my $1,000,000+ in the bank... :(

    It was hell and a half to even get that. Well, guess I could try it again in my spare time.

    @Simple Will the wipe remove my premium status? (That would be a tad irritating)

    No, of course not.

    It won't remove any "meta" data. Such as playtime, rank, amount of times joined, etc.

    Finally a suggestion that you didn't respond to gets used!

    Well this is an interesting coincidence...

    Was always going to make (well, resume) a video competition sooner or later
    Originally was going to do it for Semi-Serious release but that didn't happen.

    Most of them should be fixed, yes. At least the ones reported were.

    There are still some VCMod related ones, such as have to switch to driver seat as passenger to get out.
    In some ways this is actually a design issue.

    When the driver leaves the car, the car is automatically locked (this is good).
    When a car is locked, a player cannot enter or exit it (including passengers inside the car - also good, so you can lock people inside the car).
    I can try make it so that if the car is locked, you cannot switch to driver seat. This doesn't help the problem we have though. Driver would need to unlock their vehicle for passengers to get out. I'm sure if it's like that now, might be a bug otherwise that passengers can't get out even if car is unlocked.

    A workaround at the moment is that drivers can eject passengers using Alt + passenger seat number, before getting out.

    I could also make it so passengers are auto ejected when the driver gets out, but that limits some RP situations when you want passengers to stay in the car.

    Thoughts?

    And yes, admins can pickup and remove cars.

    I think the best option might be, if possible, make it so cars don't auto lock when the driver leaves, adds to realism (of course there would be people that would take that split second to steal a vehicle, and that should go against the rules...
    I think that passengers shouldn't be able to swap seats if the car is locked, and also that the driver can eject them from the car...
    ALSO: If you could, make it so drivers can lock vehicles while driving.

    Can already lock vehicle when driving. Alt + N.
    Have a look at controls with /vcmod.
