After a few weeks of consideration I have made the decision to stop all updates other then Donation Updates for the time being. The reason for that is, we need to fix a lot of bugs and get things to a point where we can push major updates. Right now we have started a Road Map for everyone to keep track of this progress and where things are going in the community.
We currently have 4 phases to this update.
Phase 1 - The plan with the first phase is literally to identify the problems. What I mean by that is literally Setup the route for the next few phases. IE we need to know what guns we use, what cars we are using, what buildings, ect. And then once we have a good idea about all of that we need to then plan what we want to use in the future. What we want to add and what we want to give up. After that has all been determined we move to Phase 2.
Phase 2 - Once we have everything from the first phase we can then go through our 541 mods in our @A3L and simplify. What I mean by that is remove all the mods we aren't using and then merge some of the ones we are. Simple clean neat! After that we will work hard to fix ALL the bugs. I don't mean just a bug here and a bug there to put band-aids on the issue. I want it where when you join the server there is NO issues!
Phase 3 - After all the bugs and kinks have been fixed we will then start the Development process, New Jobs, All new UI for everything to match, New Buildings, Medical System, Furniture for houses, Physical Items instead of virtual, and what everyone has been waiting for.... The new Map. And other things that will be listed on the road-map.
Phase 4 - Then after all of that before we push the major update we will need to do a few things we haven't done in the past. Get IP (intellectual property) agreements with all devs who's 3rd party mods we have in our server. People ask why this is so important... Well the reason is so if someone reports us to bohemia we have an agreement stating we have permission to use said mod and even monitize while doing so. This is very important so people like you don't miss out on any content having to be removed due to permissions. Once we have the IP agreements then we need to give credits to all 3rd party mod makers. BIG KEY THING that we haven't done in a LONG time. Then we push a major update.
**Now remember during all this things in the road-map may change. We may add more into the cards or take away depending on the situation so make sure you are constantly checking our road-map to find out.**
