Version 1.8


Introduction
Update 1.8 has been in development for a few weeks now, and we finally have a development team rather than just one person, so development is ramping up now. Thank you so much to @M3E6 for joining the development effort, I hope for many good things to come from this partnership, for the betterment of the server and the community.

This update contains more new things than usual, so I've compiled a short video to showcase some of the new things, which you can watch here:

You can subscribe to the MCNR YouTube channel by clicking here. You'll then never miss a new MCNR YouTube video for future updates!

I've also put together an album of the new things you can take a look at: https://imgur.com/a/mKndqUU

You can find the full changelog down below.




Oil slicks

- You can now purchase an 'Oil slick' at a gas station checkpoint.
- They cost $528 and you can hold two in your inventory.
- To use, simply select from inventory, type /slick, or press FIRE when looking behind a vehicle (Q + E + LMB).
- You can also place them on-foot (with inventory selection or /slick).
- They expire after 15 seconds, so you have to time them right.
- Vehicles that go over them will spin out.
- Cannot be used from cop cars (as they already drop spike strips.
- Added relevant stats and achievements.

New mission: Mailman

- Enter the Boxville truck at one of the locations (see /missions for directions).
- Deliver packages to 5 houses in the active city.

New mission: Pizzaboy

- Enter the Pizzaboy faggio at any Stacked Pizza, Burgershot, or Cluckin Bell to start.
- Deliver pizza's to 3 houses in the active city.

New mission/event: Smuggler

- Enter any van or truck and press the sub-mission key (2) to start a smuggler mission.
- Collect the goods from outside the active city and smuggle them into the active city.
- Cops are alerted once you enter the active city, and can take the goods to the impound for a reward.
- Other players can assist you by entering as a passenger. They will get a reward upon delivery of the goods.
- Other players can also rival you, and try to steal the truck and deliver it to their own dropoff.

Main fixes
- A number of fixes for reoccurring server lag issues. Improved efficiency in various parts of the script.
- Improvements to lag around Blueberry area.
- Fixed an issue where objects used to block off map exploits were being created every time a player joined (they should only be created when the server starts). This may have led to lag (client and server).
- Reduced streaming distance of bank interior objects to prevent players timing out upon entering the bank.
- Fixed long-time bug where players could become stuck looking at a black screen. This bug has plagued the server since day 1 so it's nice to see it fixed at last!
- Fixed players being able to quit the game between the arrest animation and actually being teleported to jail resulting in them returning as an innocent civilian rather than being put in jail.
- Fixed bug where when a player quits, any other player on the server sharing the same IP address would time-out.
- Fixed players no longer being in a 'cuffed' state after being tazed while cuffed, allowing them to run around, jump, and even enter vehicles.
- Daily objective to 'Exit a burning vehicle before it explodes' no longer counts if you die in said vehicle. You must actually exit it, like it says.
- Fixed 'Mike won the lotto!' message not showing jackpot amount correctly.
- Fixed exiting a property in Palisades (SF) spawning the player in the water below.
- Fixed an issue which might cause players exiting properties to spawn inside a wall adjacent to the door.
- Returning a personal vehicle to storage wasn't saving fuel.
- Sweeper red blip icons and treasure hunt ? icon should now take priority over other icons.
- Fixed textdraws persisting after exporting a vehicle if another vehicle was exported before the old textdraws were hidden.
- Replaced MapAndreas plugin with ColAndreas. Will fix spike strips, personal vehicles etc. appearing under the map, and also spawning players under the map when exiting interiors.
- Fixed cop rules dialog disappearing after 10 seconds to be replaced by an incompletion version of itself.
- Fixed player and camera becoming stuck if exiting a vehicle just after entering the carwash before it starts.
- Fixed boomboxes not working inside properties.
- Fixed an issue with supply drop failing to appear/land. There's still a second issue involved with this we are yet to identify.
    Please type /supplyid if your supply drop fails to appear/land and report it on the forums with video/screenshots/chatlog where possible.
- The cuffing process is now cancelled if a bribe is exchanged.

Other fixes
- Fixed 'Player A has ejected Player B from the vehicle' being shown to all players. It should have only been shown to other players in the vehicle.
- Added checks for the bank vault guard NPC being missing, it will no longer allow the bank robbery to start.
- Added missing command /packages as an alias for /collectables.
- Fixed text cut-off in /jobs.
- Fixed an ATM stuck in the wall in Los Santos next to Grove Street.
- Fixed 'Entered drive-by mode' showing when pressing H in any vehicle. It will now only show in suitable vehicles.
- Treasure hunt ? icon is now destroyed if a player's treasure hunt progress is reset (if a mission is started).
- Prevented special easter egg vehicles being able to be towed by a towtruck.
- Fixed '/gps zones' not working but '/gps zone' was. Both should be possible.
- Fixed the 'Lure' version of the Rancher spawning. Only regular Rancher will now spawn.
- Fixed Tanker not having a cash value when exporting it.
- Fixed black screen on ban screen.
- Fixed personal vehicle that is force-respawned after being recalled becoming stuck in the world at the place which it was first spwaned in
- Chainsaw 'limiter' no longer active during Lumberjack, as it was intefering with the ability to do the mission.
- Fixed /windows and /doors not functioning correctly.
- Passengers that are charged $100 for Pay 'n' Spray now have this refunded.
- Fixed 'Cancel' button on 'Do you want to recover this personal vehicle' dialog returning to an empty dialog if the vehicle in question is not stored in a garage/property.
- Gas station stores are now listed in the GPS under stores.
- Locating missions via GPS or via /missions list will no longer fail to start missions that cannot be started by the player. If you select to find a prisoner transport mission and you aren't a cop, it said it was unable to find any.

Other changes:
- Robbed ATMs will give more cash.
- Bank robbery payout has also been reduced, but it's difficult to say how much as it depends on the cop:civ ratio. Roughly 15% less.
- Wealth tax will now only be applied to players with over $10m. It was previously $1m. The same rate (0.5%) will apply.
- Cops and other jobs have received a payday pay increase.

Any chance you can make the firefighting jobevent randomized? I got trash can like 5 times in a row idk if it already is, but since there is only fire in a building and trash can event, make it 50/50 i guess
