LVP 30.6 - Real estate empires, the ability to heal, and less interior abuse!

posted by Joe on Sunday, October the 16th at 3:39 AM
With the release of LVP gamemode version 30.6, our developers introduced many wonderful features, improvements, and bug fixes. Our VIPs will now have the ability to own up to three houses per VIP account, anyone can now add health and armor pickups to their houses. This gives you the ability to essentially purchase permanent spawn armor if you spawn at a house with an armor pickup. The new vehicle system has been improved from LVP 30.5, and restrictions on recently shot and players who have shot on entering interiors have been introduced. 

New features:

  • VIPs can now purchase up to three houses on the server (d7c5c03)
  • You can now purchase health and armour pickups for your house (f9639cc)
  • Entering houses and interiors is now subject to the same limitations as the teleportation commands. This will tremendously help prevent interior abuse (71744bf)
  • Packet loss percentage is now included in /my playerinfo (4e944b3)
  • 4,000 pickups isn't cool. We can now have up to 25 million (a2c8be7)
