    Script Update 5.7

    Vehicle Lock Pick System Implemented Increased amount of player vehicles that can be spawned No VIP: 4 Bronze Vip: 6 Silver Vip: 8 Gold Vip: 12 Platinum VIP: 20
  3. With the current player base and the fact that samps limit on vehicles we have the ability to remove /vstorage and have it so players vehicles are always spawned when they log in, aswell as keep them spawned when they log out, in theory this will increase the role-play and allow incorrectly parked vehicles to be impounded by leo factions at any time, please vote

  11. Previously once a gang captured a point it would be theirs for 24 hours, this has been increased to 48 hours due to the low population of players most points were constantly available for capture, it is with the intention of increasing the time to 48 hours that less points will be available for capture and invite roleplay situations for the ones that are available
  12. Features Added In 5.3 Furniture System Implemented!, Added 260 items of furniture available for puchase Feautures Added In 5.4 When gang members now capture points its for 48 hours instead of 24, this will allow Gangs/Families to hold onto the point for longer

    Turf Policy

    Turf Policy 1.) Turfs are In-Character Gang-on-gang KOS is permitted within turf, but gunfights are IC events and will be viewed as such by Game Affairs. Gang-on-cop or cop-on-gang KOS is not permitted and there must be prior interaction; enforcement of KOS rules between cops and gangs in turf will be via the general server offenses. There are some additional rules for turfs that do not apply in normal gunfights, but all general server offenses still apply to turf. 2.) Turf Claim Groups are able to claim any turf, even if it is disconnected from their other claimed turfs. Groups may take as many turfs as they like. 2.5): Turf Claim Cont'd Only groups that can affect the status of a turf by capturing it or shutting it down may participate in the turf. This excludes the medical faction, who may heal other participants and defend themselves when shot upon, but not participate in the turf as active combatants. Military factions may not participate in turf unless all law enforcement factions are absent. A gang can only claim one turf. A gang may still attend multiple turfs as long as there is only an active capture on one. Factions may shut down more than one turf at a time. If you capture two turfs at the same time and don't immediately report your mistake to admins online you will be issued a strike. Punishment: Prison, Strike, group ban 3.): Revenge Killing in Turfs Turf participants are not allowed to RK to an active turf under any circumstances. Punishment: Gang Warn, Prison, Strike if two R5+and group ban 4.): Hiding in Turfs Hiding in turfs is prohibited. This rule includes being on roofs that are not visible from the street or by jumping on/towards them, and other buildings and constructs removed from the area of turf activity. You are allowed to fight from bridges over the turf because all bridges are accessible. Gangs may not camp unaccessible roofs outside of the turf zone unless such roof is accessible to all players. If such gang is planning to snipe, there must be sufficient roleplay before doing so, taking screenshots of the roleplay is also mandatory to avoid Sniper Deathmatching. Only one member per gang is permitted to snipe from outside the zone. Punishment: Gang Warn, Prison, Strike if two R5+, Warning, Group ban. 5.): Vehicles in Turf Turf participants may use a vehicle in turf for role play, but may not consistently drive around within the turf boundaries or use their vehicle to evade losing a turf capture. Fair use of vehicles in turf may be determined on a case-by-case basis by Gang or Faction Moderators. Punishment: Gang Warn, Prison 6.): Usage of Interiors Turf participants may not use any doors or enter an interior during turf. Punishment: Gang Warn, Prison 7.): Alt-Tabbing While in an Active War Turf participants cannot tab out of the game during a turf. Punishment: Gang Warn, Prison 8.): Gang Skins and /repfam Group members must have their group skin on while taking over a turf and must also have their /repfam or badge enabled within the turf. Punishment: Gang Warn, Prison * These punishments apply to all turf participants. If factions are found to break these rules then the individuals will be punished and Game Affairs will reexamine the leadership of the faction to be sure gameplay is fair and balanced for everyone. Punishments will be inline with the main server offenses in addition to these policies. Credit: Spencer Jameson, Kevin Kush, Darius Devil

  21. As some of you may have noticed the Next Level Roleplay server came back online roughly a week ago after some real life problems got in the way of development and myself and the admin team came to a conclusion to shut down the server temporarily to fix some game breaking bugs all of the above issues have been resolved and what happened won't happen again, server hosting is covered for the next year and a half which includes are more stable and "beefed" up server host, previously the server was running Access to three HT CPU cores (Intel Sandy Bridge or better) 6068 MB of RAM 200 GB of RAID-protected storage 120000 GB of bandwidth transfer Now the main dedicated server of Next Level is boasting 8 virtual cpu's, and 35gb of ram pared with a 500gb SSD! the previous specs were enough to happily run the SA-MP and Teamspeak server but left no room for growth and expansion to other games and other servers, the new network has been pre paid for an entire YEAR! Their are also substantial protocols in place to ensure their is very little to no DOWNTIME! (excludes script updates and database maintenance) this new network is set to pave the future of next level gaming starting with samp, and moving forward offering more games and more servers for the community to play, The forums will be undergoing some changes over the next few weeks to account for the expected expansion across the entire network, We realize that the unexpected closure of next level role play has inadvertently causes players to leave and find other communities to enjoy sa-mp, so essentially we will be rebuilding the player base from the ground up, this is basically it for now so please, jump in game checkout the changes and browse the forums for anything new!
  22. Hmm, didn't think i'd be writing this post as soon as i am, but As you all will have noticed the player count currently in next level roleplay, is uh' pretty shit, We went from 10+ players constantly slowly down to 8, then 5, then 3, now the server struggles too see 1, So basically here's whats going to happen, the Dedicated server will continue to run the roleplay server until the end of the month, If the player count rises, the server WILL not close, but if it remains the way it is unfortunately it will be closed and next level gaming will move forward and host servers for more modern games, the samp gamemode will still be developed and updated and the server will not be "gone" forever, it will come back, but this will be after months if not a year of re coding so it is unique in its own way, as that's the problem with SA-MP these days, everyone has everything and nothing is really unique anymore, This post will be updated periodically on any chances or updates regarding the various aspects of Next Level Gaming, Their will be talks throughout the admin team this week about the future and come to a unanimous decision regarding Next Level Roleplay, that's all for now
  23. Their was a discussion happening recently on the discussion of Next level Roleplay's future, you may have noticed over the past week their has been basically 0/100 Players on the server, this is not what we like to see, The staff team and I were having a little guessing game trying to work out why this has occured, and to put it simply its because the script is too much like NGG, which isn't necessarily a bad thing but for you the PLAYERS it begins to feel stale after a few weeks, and as you may no their are many many many NGG "revives" being created on an almost daily basis, which this isn't very good news for us as we're in a constant competition so this is where the update of all updates begin, the server is set to be locked for an estimated time of 2 weeks, during that time development will be going around the clock, changing almost every single aspect of the script which includes NERFING the economy, because lets face it its incredibly non RP having to pay 3k for a phone, 10k for a phone book, 1 million dollars for a sultan, so the first order of businesses is changing the pay rates FOR EVERY SINGLE THING YOU CAN BUY AND SELL, this is expected to take me roughly a week as i have become comfortable working with the script, i know what goes where, and what to code and what to change to keep everything efficient and fast, So please check back constantly namely the script update section in development as their are going to be changes and revisions constantly, once we feel the script is up to our NEW standards the password will be removed, now... you may be thinking oh "fuck" all accounts are going to be deleted in favour of a more balanced economy, but no that's not the case, a simple mysql script will be run to divide everyones current balance by a certain percentage to match the new economy, thats all for now! we at Next Level Gaming thank you for your patience and understanding UPDATE 7-4-18 Marriage cost significantly reduced Advertisement/Priority Advertisement cost significantly reduced Cost of sprunk reduced Medical bill upon death significantly reduced Cost of everything in the hitman locker signifcantly reduced Max bail price Reduced Cost of /SMS reduced Hourly paycheck reduced ATM Fee reduced Taxi Licence Fee reduced Cost of Armour from VIP/Famed/Dedicated Significantly reduced Fines for /su reduced Trucked Job Relocated to LS, More information on this shortly Pay rates for all jobs adjusted according to the new economy (eg, dropping a patient off at the hospital used to give 20k, it now gives 2k.)

    Economy Nurf

    Currently the prices of items/vehicles/houses/businesses/toys/clothes, etc... are how do i put it, pretty expensive? for example buying a phone can cost up to $10,000 dollars, which to me isn't very realistic, so i'm putting the suggestion out their to see how the players will react about a global economy nurf, which means dropping the prices on EVERYTHING, for example, phones will cost $100, phone book will cost $50, etc throughout the entire server covering everything to introduce a more realistic economy, this would also mean that players bank and cash on hand will be lowered by a certain percentage to counteract the costs of goods and services across los santos, I'm open to the opinions of everyone because after all, you are the guys who will be buying and selling stuff, this also means that the payout from doing jobs will be significantly reduced, it may feel like you have less money but the money you have will go a lot further? let me know what you guys think in the poll
  25. As you are all aware the SA-MP Roleplay server is well underway, but if your like me you don't always feel like playing samp, currently we had a ridiculous amount of leftover resources on the dedicated server, we could almost run 30 SAMP servers before we came close to the limit, so im putting it out their what other servers for what other games would you like to see? IF a game has a DEDICATED SERVER option we can run it, and you might just so happen to be put in charge of all aspects of it, so please don't hesitate to comment below on what other servers you would like to see supported by Next Level Gaming!
