Bugs & bans... all gone!

And it's time for the bugfix release! Not only did we fix quite a lot of bugs, we also have a nice surprise in store for all of you.

In this version of LVP, 2.92.4, we've reverted to jail to the LVP 2.91 jail cells. This is because the current jail has a lot of trouble with object loading, causing people to get more jail time. We do not know how to fix this yet, but we're looking into it. In the meantime, enjoy the nostalgic jail.

You also can no longer use /world in and around the gangbase, because some gangs used this to 'world-abuse' and surprise the other gang in world 0. The annoying wrong spawnposition for /ww and /sawnoff has been fixed, the attackers in the robbery now get an MP5 instead of Dual Colts. Next to that, we've fixed various rampage bugs, and you can now /leave if you're on a rampage.

In our quest for attracting new players, the hostname has been changed to DM/Minigames/Stunt instead of LVP 2.92. The bug where the bonus times automatically restarted is fixed as well. A few fightclub watch bugs have been fixed, and when a fight ends, the people who watch now automatically respawn.

Check the full changelog here and stay tuned for the next feature update!

As mentioned, we've got something else exciting to talk about as well. We've been looking into ways of getting more players to LVP, from advertising to changing the gamemode name. Of course, those will get us probably 1 or 2 new players, but that's not enough. That's why we decided to lift all the bans we made since 2007 (except for a couple, you know who you are, you little rascals). It sure were a lot of bans, so we're expecting to see a nice little rise in the playercount!

See you on the playground!
