Version 3.0 R4

Written by Smally

Additions:

  • Added the ability for new donators to create teamspeak channels, if you have already donated (new donations only) you will need to raise a ticket and myself or management will grant you the ability to create a TS channel.
  • Added the ability to delete characters, please note to stop money farming of accounts you must now have a minimum of $15,000 before you can delete a player account. 

Fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where the UCP would spam emails every 5 minutes if your premium levels was about to expire (Sorry @Simon :))
  • Fixed some small typos and some other misc errors.

Version 3.0 R3

Written by Smally

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where temp denied applications would never expire, meaning that applicants would be unable to re-apply.
  • Fixed an issue with the ticket tagged email.
  • Fixed an issue where players would be unable to reply to their tickets, following a reply from a member of staff.
  • Fixed an issue where the menu on the ACP would not scroll correctly on certain resolutions (actually fixed this time)
  • Fixed some misc styling problems across the admin control panel.
  • Fixed an issue on the ACP where if the faction leader name was not found in the DB it would cause a 500 (Whoops) page to be thrown. 
  • Fixed an issue with the RCRP_Log class which would cause the entries to appear wrong in the DB.
  • Fixed issue with the adding of user notes for admins.
  • Fixed issue with the editing of faction ranks.
  • Fixed issue with the player stats not resizing on the ACP.
  • Fixed an issue where in certain circumstances you would be unable to login.

Changes:

  • Change the session time length.
  • Re-enabled the ability for testers to handle applications. 
  • Removed some unused packages from the composer.json file.
  • Some small refactoring of the base code, moving certain things around.

Additions:

  • The ability to transfer donator vehicles.
    • You may only transfer donator vehicles to your own character accounts now, if for whatever reason you require the vehicle to be transferred outside your master account then you must raise a support ticket. Please note this will be handled by myself or management and will only be approved in sitautions where the donator vehicle was yours and a friend was using it etc.
    • If your donator vehicle is a 'legacy vehicle', meaning it was a pre new donation system vehicle then you must have an active premium level to transfer it. If it is a 'new' donator vehicle then you can transfer it regardless of your premium status.
  • Added the ability for admins to ban, and temp ban players via the ACP once again.

Upcoming Changes:

  • For the time being you are still unable to delete character accounts yourself, and you are still required to submit a support ticket. In the next update you will be able to once again delete your character accounts. 

Version 3.0 R2

Written by Smally

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed an issue where you would be unable to view your character account if you had no cash on your character.
  • Fixed an issue with the donation email which was not resolved in the previous bug fix.
  • Fixed an issue which prevented players replying to support tickets.
  • Fixed an issue with the creating of articles.
  • Fixed an issue with the editing of articles, where the content of the article would not load.
  • Fixed an issue on the faction centre where the faction centre would not load if the leader name was invalid.
  • Hopefully fixed the issue where sessions would not persist, although this isn't yet confirmed.
  • Fixed some misc design issues.

Additions:

  • Added the ability for myself and management to restart the server in emergency situations.
  • Added the ability for mangement to delete character accounts.
    • For the time being if you wish to delete a character account you must raise a suport ticket. The reasoning behind this is that the previous system was heavily abused and led to money farming, so some serious thought will go into the new one.
  • Added the viewing of connection logs for administrators.
  • Heavily refactored the max online players query, to only update when the count is higher than the rest of the day.
  • Added a custom 404 page to replace the default Laravel one.

Upcoming changes:

  • The one requested feature that is still missing is the ability to transfer donator vehicles, it is the one feature I haven't had time to do before pushing this bug fix out. However, a more feature rich release will follow in the early part of next week, so if I could kindly ask you all to bare with me for time being that would be great. The ability to transfer donator vehicles may come much sooner, but at the latest it will be Monday.

Version 3.0

Written by Smally

Bug Fixes

  • The new UCP is completely compatible with the 3.0 version of the gamemode, meaning that your inventory etc will now match up to what you have in-game, preventing the confusion caused by this.
  • Fixed issues with the faction centre being inaccessible after the release of gamemode version 3.0.
  • Fixed all the random 500 errors that have been happening recently.
  • The faction centre is now accessible.

New Features

  • Complete redesign both of the frontend and the ACP. The frontend design was created by @Bauer and the majority was coded by @Chilco, so thanks to them for that!
  • Completely recoded backend, none of the existing code from the old UCP has been implemented into the new one. The purpose of the new UCP was mainly to allow us to move from an old version of the Laravel framework to a much newer one, allowing us to ensure we are fully up to date with new security releases etc.
  • The new donation system as stated in Tommy's announcement has been implemented into this release of the User Control Panel.
  • Users can no longer register using disposable email addresses.
  • The emails that you will receive from the UCP are now more informative and more intuitive.

Adjustment Changes

  • Removed the following features:
    • Public Character Profiles - The system will return at a later date, but was not seen as required for this version of the UCP to release.
    • Friends System (Meme)
    • Two Factor Authentication - 2FA will be worked on shortly.
    • Faction MDC - This was not seen as a priority feature, as most features are in-game. Nonetheless, a basic MDC will be in the first feature release and then will be built on.
  • New donations will be viewed from your master account dashboard (/user/dashboard) and legacy donations are still viewable from your individual character accounts.

Planned Features

  • Turf Maps have been a much requested feature from mainly @Crazy Andre since he's a pest. They were originally meant to be implemented into the old UCP, but the decision was made by myself to halt all work on the old UCP and only fix major security bugs.
  • MDC - Each faction that requires the MDC will be spoken to individually once the initial generic version has been launched, as I plan to implement features that each faction require.
  • Refunds - At the moment the refund process is a bit backwards, and requires multiple stages to actually have the item refunded to you. The idea is that refunds will be done through the UCP and certain refunds will require approval from management etc.
  • Forum Integration - A feature that won't happen for a while since there are many other things that will come first. However, the idea is that you will receive your groups etc when you join a faction automatically as well as donator groups etc.
  • Asset Management - will allow you to manage certain features of your houses and/or business. Including firing of managers, locking of the businesses and requesting stock.
