Afternoon, we hope everyone's having a good weekend and decided to make a news post about what's been going on within the clan/development news this month.
As most of you have probably seen already, we've added 3 fresh community staff members to the team however we didn't make an official topic about it because they all suck. In all seriousness, congratulations to @Tut-Greco @Arma and @Groove who hopefully haven't started abusing already yet.
@Bone has been hard at work adding 2 new vehicle mods to the server. These include both the Club and Enforcer. Images of the mods can be found in the following album: https://imgur.com/a/vFFphvz Both mods are high quality and low in size hopefully giving you a more sexy playing experience.
KATLA / 1.4 Development
As you all know, KATLA is the new game mode that NanoBob and Deso have been working on for some time now which was initially supposed to be the 2.0 sort of release for the clan. However, due to a disagreement which took place between the HQ Team and the KATLA devs, KATLA will no longer be continuing as a gamemode under the SAES Clan. This means, the KATLA gamemode will still be developed however it will be on a completely different server from SAES and is no longer a clan project,
All we can do is apologise as it feels we have been in this situation many times before.
Onto a more uplifting topic, this does infact mean that the 1.4 gamemode is our core focus for development from this point on and our active dev team includes @Blade @Mega9 and @jonas13362 . All of them are sexy beasts and will be looking to make the server a better place for you all.
Bank Robbery Balance Changes
As you've all seen with my topic in general chat concerning the recent BR balance changes, (more details can be found here.
This balance changes put in place are very likely to stay due to the intended performance ingame that we've been witnessing despite some contradictory opinions.
Please Note: Based on the Kill Arrest change listed below, the money reward border could still be subject to change based on how OP kill arrest is.
Kill Arrest Trial
So this is probably the core topic to this post. Poll Details can be found here
Granted this was a very contradictory feature according to the poll however we've decided to give it a trial anyway. At this current stage, kill arrest will only be enabled in the bank/jail for now. This method of arrest will give criminals 50% less jail time than that of a melee arrest while also rewarding cops with 50% less the reward. Massive props @Mega9 for sorting this.
Again, nothing is setting stone here and is purely down to trial due to the high contradictory response we received (we would never expect all criminals to be 100% satisfied with this though). This will be closely monitored with a feedback thread.
I think that's all for now, have a great summer.
