    • Trams will not disappear anymore after entering them as passenger #354

    @MarksMan finally you can use Tram spawn without getting banned

  • This post is deleted!
  • 🙂

  • In other situations I would have dropped an ironic comment and critizised (always positively) the mappings.

    This time though, my most sincere congratulations for all the job done which clearly shows there was a lot of effort put into improving the server.

    I would also like to take the chance to congratulate @MarksMan for fighting for the rights of those whose account was banned for abusing the tram.

    Long life to HR defenders, welcome back to GR crybabies and overall GOOD JOB SAES> KAIN VERY GOOD MANAGEMENT.

    I think we can finally say did you know scorpyo and other saes developers are the reason this server is so great?
