Title: Latest Events
Post by: VRocker on September 01, 2010, 09:43:10 pm
Fairly important news post here. With a few things.

Firstly, i'd like to announce that LU has lost a developer. himselfe left the dev team on Monday 30th august, we're sad to see him go.
himselfe is responsible for quite a bit of the internal stuff in LU, like some stability patches and the entry/exit anims, aswell as a lot of other things.
So LU is left with 3 real developers again. Me, Juppi and AdTec_224 (Since Mike has never done anything anyway)

Next, a more merrier issue (ish).

We have been discussing LU lately and due to being 1 developer short and the rest of us either not having the time or incentive to work on it, we've came to the decision to give the community a say on whether or not we should release it in its current state.

This does not mean we are giving up on it, quite the opposite infact. The purpose of a release would give us more incentive to work on it and perfect it gradually, without the thought of 'lets just get it released soon'.

The decision was made, based on the success of the recent public test, to put it to a vote.

Should we release it in its current state? With a proper browser, setup and an automatic updater (So that we can update all clients/servers easily with bug fixes as we fix them). The current state of the mod itself is basically the same as the public test, with a couple of fixes added.

We will run the poll for 30 days, which will give us time to polish the mod up in case you all decide we should release.
After that we will either release, or keep working on it and testing privately.

really is sad. :/ good luck himselfe in your life!

in my opinion finish then release.

It may seem better for the devs to finish the mod first.
But in fact, whether it is finished or not totally depends on whether they are satisfied with the number of features and bugs.
Personally, I believe LU could've been released quite some time ago.

Think of it this way, you get presents from the lu devs every few weeks while you play!
So once in a while you'll see new features, less bugs and will feel happier that you decided to play LU.
And you don't need to wait months on end for a simple fix to an annoying bug you are aware of!

Does that help put things in perspective? :)

Awwy :(. Bye bye himselfe.

And VRocker: I always can help. Im trusted (am I :P?) and learned C++ a lot last times (coding various stuff all the time). Small tips and viola ;). Talk to me on IRC or PM if you are interested in it.

Im not sure about my vote. It was great on test (only some annoying crashes related to vehicles damage), but it would be nice to see it in the final stage :). I'll vote later :). Anyway, it's a bit sad :(. I hope LU project won't die and we'll see a final and perfect version someday.

Greetings and good luck.

Poor. After reading this news I think that LU is now "half dead". I know that you don't have time to code only, you are busy with real life, but hey, who is NOT nowadays?

The last public test was quite good, but if I remember from mantis, there were +100 bugzors. I think that's quite enough and since they won't be fixed I vote NO.

However it is yours, VR, finally decision to release it or not. But you should think twice before doing it :).

Good luck now & in the future.

A Stoku sie musial oczywiscie podlizywac : p.

Releasing LU now wouldn't mean the bugs wont be fixed. On the contrary, with an auto-updater it's easier to release small bug fixes and updates often (check games on steam for example), instead of bigger updates very rarely - just like VRocker said. That way the development speed would increase as well (more players looking for bugs and reporting them -> faster/easier to fix). Some of the bugs discovered during the beta have already been fixed as well, and theres still time left before we release anything.

The initial release would have more bugs than we hoped ofc but with an auto-updater we can deploy fixes as soon as we have finished them. The end users (players) wouldn't have to download and install any patches manually, the game would always be up-to-date when you start playing.

yeh, a auto updater its a good idea  :)

I think that LU is ready for a release, but what bugs are fixed from the public beta?

Anyway for me is YES for release.
Title: Re: Latest Events
Post by: niCe on September 08, 2010, 10:00:03 am
I haven't watched the public beta test, however, if the mode is now playable, with included auto updater I believe the release would be the best choice. I'm looking forward to open up a server for LU. Good job devs.

i said yes. 

in the sense.... ...no offense..but its fukn gta3....   :-\

i like the game.. sure.  I played the beta for a good few hours...  was actually quite nice. 

And i also play sa-mp and vc-mp  ..  and aside from some crashin in LU  ...  in which i still crash in vcmp and samp on occasion.... and they've been released for years....  Everything seemed to be quite smooth. 

You collected data from the beta (so rhymed)   And i assumed you've used some of it.  I see no harm in releasing it, as u said u lack incentive....and if it was released....ppl would clearly play it, and that would create ..incentive. 


Theirs bugs..o no..its gta mp loool  Bugs <3    Their isn't 2 many smart ppl out their...so as long as their is no security issues (as im sure u wouldn't even of released the beta if their was) 

then..i'd say... shit u took a month to vote(plenty of time for some polishin touches)....  More said yes, then no....  so release... yes or no?  The YES's have Won. (according to the current pole)

ok i typed a bunch.

Voted for no.
I could have released a version of LU a while ago but nobody would have been happy with it. for this reason we are taking our time on it to make sure that come release day, it'll be good and wont crash every 5 minutes!
Still waiting for it. IIRC LU was going to be stable, so I'm waiting for it's stability.

in the sense.... ...no offense..but its fukn gta3....    :-\

Judging by the votes, we will release the mod!

LU will be released this month. We will announce a definitive date when we decide on one.

We never said we would release today, it would've been nice but we are still tying up any loose ends.

Between now and the release date we will start opening up the wiki and other useful resources.

GTA III

This has nothing to do with Multi Theft Auto, it's a seperate mod for the Grand Theft Auto game. And like I just said, it's a mod, not a server of any kind.

Will I be able to play in LU with mods for GTA 3 ?
Title: Re: Latest Events
Post by: Juppi on October 11, 2010, 08:48:00 pm
Yes, in fact allowing/disallowing mods is up to the server owner and their anticheat settings. That means you can host a server for example for any GTA 3 total conversion mod and force the clients to use the same files.
