    Trick or Treat 2018 is Retribution's Halloween mini-event. From now until 5th November 2018 Trick-Or-Treat pumpkins will spawn across the map every 90 minutes. These pumpkins will have a chance to give you either a trick or a treat (RTD tokens, a new perma item). These Halloween-ified RTD tokens will give EVERYONE 2 RTD tokens no matter their rank, if a treat is received. Every pumpkin looted gives you a chance at one of the 5 new permanent weapons. If a trick is received however, you might not be having a good time. This mini-event introduces 4 new Melee weapons and 1 new Gun. During the event, night and day have been switched; with it being night-time majority of the time, along with some other spooks added. Whilst the event is running you will also be able to purchase some spooky entities from the F4 menu such as candy, fireworks and spiderweb that you can spawn as a method of base-defense (slowing attackers). I don't want to post pictures of the rewards yet as I want players to find them out for themselves. Good luck!

    I personally would disagree with adding RTD things to a vendor. Here are the reasons: It is so much more satisfying when you land on a high priced item versus just going and buying it If you did add a vendor then the market would eventually influx, ultimately there would be almost no point of rtd other then getting stuff like Stimpacks. Yes you may overpriced them but in the long run if most of the people have a grapple hook for example, it'll decrease it's value exponentially and in the long run when people start selling those things on tradeco then the price overall of them will be lower because they are common items. If you think the RNG isn't right, then change the percentages of gaining something rather then just buying it, it's a lot more fun getting it off chance rather then grinding for it and would develop competition within the community. I personally have gotten an RU-556 off RTD and it was EXTREMELY satisfying. Last thing i'll say is if you do anything, add new weapons that are vendor specific and unique. If your going to overprice something, make it so the items you incorperate are the only thing you can get from that vendor, yes there are some vendors like that but to tell the truth. I don't see and vendors that sell amazing or just great guns that are unique to that vendor. Only one I know about is the basic guns that you can buy for low price and even then people can buy and ocelot shotgun for 10 mill on tradeco vs a rustic for 15 mill at the vendor. Ultimately, I'd ask you add variety but don't allow people to just buy things that are specific to RNG, those are the things that make it worthwhile when you win them in RTD. I will say though that the RNG is a bit unbalanced. It's extremely hard to get a rare or even a super rare. Even getting something such as an ocelot is not a common occurrence.

    Bug Fixes: N/A Modified Files/Content: N/A Added Content: Lotteries now have a 10% tax, this is taken from the total winnings. If this rate feels like too much I will reduce it, but for the time being it is 10%.

    Don't really think it's about lag anymore even though he added that on as a addition to what the "Raiding World" has become. It's still pretty bad, but if it does get fixed, there are still major problems left. Raiding is basically impossible now from what I'm hearing. All these double barrels that everyone has that are still supposably "1 bil" or somewhere around that price, pay to win guns, and now the speed drugs getting a nerf. Each time 2 more guns get added, it sounds like raiding becomes more dead and people start staying in there bases more often.

    Server Update January 29th, 2019:
  12. 7 points
    Added Content/Modified Files/Content/Bug Fixes: Recently the server has been FILLED with minge's - part of this is a lack of staff issue and the other part is the ease of access to minge with. I've made some changes to assist avoiding this: SWAT, SWAT Jugg, Mayor's Bodyguard and Police Chief all now require 5 hours of playtime. Police, Gun Dealer and Hitman all now require 2 hours of playtime. Mayor's Bodyguard no longer has access to unnecessary sweps for their job (Contraband scanner, arrest stick etc) Police Trainee has been added for those that wish to play a PD job without getting the playtime, but with heavier restrictions. This job has no arrest baton or weapon and only has access to the contraband scanner, unarrest stick, stun stick and battering ram. (If this job wants a weapon, they'll have to find a Gun dealer and purchase one). A bartender job has been added with access to the radio, same rules as the Club Owner but with access to beverages. A bar waitress has been added to accompany the bartender on creating a better RP environment. Bartender and Club Owner now have access to Wardrobe, running around using Wardrobe instead of creating some form of RP environment or entertainment will result in a demote/job ban and if continued, a player ban. (This gives players more creativity when it comes to their RP builds, if you abuse this you'll be ruining it for others if I have to revert this.) Cinema Owner no longer has access to Wardrobe. A mystery perm weapon has been added to the RTD, this perm will be added to the store on Monday. If you manage to unbox this before Monday and you're the first person to unbox it, you will receive a free Care package from the Store! (Once unboxed, message me on Discord or Steam; this will be a first-come first-served situation.) As a side note; the RTD hub has been added back with very little changed to it, this is due to the bug fixes revolving around the errors it creates from time to time taking longer to fix than expected. However, Friday to Monday I will be bringing back the old RTD drops around the map as a limited-time event; be ready for the sirens and get your tokens/mystery perm.

    Bug Fixes: Santa Hats/RetributionRP Trails that were stuck on trade-co are now removed. All jobs should now spawn in the correct areas (No longer having fight club owners spawn in PD, etc). Modified Files/Content: Minimum Mayor lottery set to 500k, with max lottery increased to 45mil. Minimum hit price increased from 2k to 15k. Warrants on players now last 10 minutes instead of 5 minutes to give more time for police to get in and back out of a base without needing to re-warrant. Shipments now take 1 second to be ready to break/inventory instead of 3 seconds. If you are demoted from a job or die as Mayor you must wait 10 minutes before joining the same job again. (Increased from 2 minutes). PD members now have an Agenda again, controlled by the Mayor. Removed the Police Vendor's option for Riot Shields which were removed a while back to avoid players wasting their cash. Cosmetic Vendor position moved to avoid players getting stuck when spawning. Added Content: N/A

    I don't have the motivation or effort to write a full reply so I'm just going to quote Geek because he's 100% correct., This is probably the advice you should follow unless you want to start triggering price wars over the value of items. @Jouaram If you just want to get more perms out into the system - or make them easier for new players to obtain, I really suggest taking advantage of Geek, Yelsew, and even Marki for strategic game-development efforts, you have really smart talent here willing to help you brainstorm and work on the server but they won't be able to work effectively if you're on different pages. To add onto this, this is EXTREMELY important that it's controlled by RNG. If you don't, the "giving away" of a perm is weighted towards some other factor. If you have people pay for them, you're deliberately making it so people with more money have an easier time obtaining them. Any other method other than RNG will utilize game time, player money, supporter/user affinity, or some similar method to exclude or make it more difficult for other people to obtain them. It's SUUUUUUUPER important these items remain 100% random, because then it secures the fact that ANYONE, regardless of time played, money earned, or whether or not they donated, having the exact same odds as anyone else on their roll. Right now, RTD doesn't discriminate. If you make them buy-able by a vendor, you're setting a floor for the items as well as making certain demographics have an easier time obtaining them. It's not like we haven't done this in the past, we've added store weapons that were also available on RTD, but you're talking about essentially dismantling the purpose of RTD in a way that affects every perm on that item table. ok im done

    Update Blog - 02/06/2018 The following changes are now live on the server: What's New?: N/A What's Changed?: N/A Bug Fixes: N/A Balancing: Player's moving at crazy high-speeds is way too powerful with the response from the servers tick-rate/hit registration resulting in almost invincible players sprinting around; to combat this movement speed has been slightly lowered across the board (roughly 15%) and speed drugs now give less of a speed boost. (Whilst we do plan to upgrade the server soon and increase tick-rate, the insane move-speed that the speed drugs gave is something that's very unhealthy for gun play). Speed drugs move speed decreased from 4x -> 2.5x Miner's gold has been increased by another 20% (This makes gold stand out much more as a valuable resources compared to the other ores). Gold bar @ 100% value increased from: $9375 -> $11,250 This is a small update post but the speed drug change is a pretty huge change to make game-play wise so I thought I'd make it into a post instead of getting 50 messages saying that speed drugs are broken. As usual, post your feedback once you've experienced the changes and let me know what you think below.

    Bug Fixes: Fixed being able to pick up perm items from an unlimited distance (you have to be relatively close to pick it up now).

    Bug Fixes: 'Valentines Dolls' can now play sounds even if another player is using the doll. Modified Files/Content: 'Valentines Dolls' now activate on left click instead of every 5 seconds. I'm going through old, poorly functioning addons that aren't often used and removing them. This is mainly for performance. Removed addons: Weed system Amphetamine system Tasks (An updated version will be added back later) Custom Jobs that paid for the Amphetamine system will now see the classic Meth system on their job instead. Along with this, the removal of certain jobs was necessary: Junkie has been removed. Amphetamine Cook has been removed. Payday's have been changed from occurring every 2.6 minutes to occurring every 10 minutes. All payday's will be modified so that you don't lose any money based on this change, this is purely so it's easier for me to work out the correct values needed when changing them. Police were being harshly underpaid for their job. I've made some changes to this: Police's paydays have been changed from 80k an hour to 300k an hour. Police Chief's paydays have been changed from 115k an hour to 600k an hour. SWAT Jug, SWAT Medic, SWAT's paydays have been changed from 115k an hour to 500k an hour. Mayor's payday has been changed from 350k an hour to 1000k an hour. These amounts have been altered based on putting into perspective that police have no access to any entities that create money. Once a mission system is in place these rates can and will be re-looked at. The amounts sound like A LOT on paper, but try them out in-game before complaining. ty. All jobs paydays have been modified to fit the new '10 minute payday' times. Added Content: After 30 minutes of AFK you will have your job set to 'AFK' and be demoted from your job. (Staff pls dont kick AFK players unless the server is capped)

    A lot of of them are really obvious who they are from, or even have their name in them. I want to keep it anonymous to avoid any issues. I've read through all of them though.

    Server Update 28/03/2018: Bug Fixes: N/A Modified Files/Content: Changed Token Capsules a tad - Tokens now spawn once every 2 hours. They despawn after 15 minutes if nobody picks them up. Tokens now spawn in sets of 20 with a chance to spawn at any of the 50 spawn points (Random Spawning). Supporters will now receive 2 Tokens per capsule and users will still receive the 1. Kiss SWEP is now removed along with the Vendor. Added Content: This month will have a Token-based event. Every time that Tokens spawn a Gunpart will spawn with them, in a random location. This gunpart can be picked up with a 'Gunpart Bag' SWEP, which everyone will now spawn with. You can redeem these Gunparts for new permanent weapons at the new Gunpart vendor. Picking up a Gunpart gives you anywhere from 1 to 5 Gunparts. To start the event off, there will be an increase in Token Spawn rates for the first week - Tokens will spawn once every hour. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
