Published by: Jessie Wilson, Secretary of the Chief of Police.
Date: Saturday 7th of June, 2014.
Saturday 7th of June, 2014 -- A group of fugitives attempted to murder Chief of Police Daniel Reid as he was on a traffic stop. The patriot he pulled over contiously failed to answer the Chief's questions and out of nowhere, a red and white cruiser pulled up and smashed into the Chief, he was knocked down however luckily he didn't sustain deadly injuries, he is however being kept in hospital overnight. The San Andreas State Police appeal for information and kindly request that if you are pulled over by a cruiser or approached by an officer that you do REQUEST for identification. The driver of the Patriot is said to be a Mr. Mario Romano and the SASP ask that if you do see the patriot, you contact 911 immediately.
At the time Chief of Police Reid was on patrol under the San Andreas State Police's tactical unit, SWAT. Here we have a statement from an officer on scene, State Trooper II John Doe:
"It was horrible, the Chief handled the situation brilliantly and I wish there was more I could have done to stop them. I cannot stress enough how much we need your assistance and if you do see any of the vehicles then please call 911 immediately. The Chief got a lucky escape, don't let it be you that is their next target."
The public will be updated with information as and when it comes available.

APPLES AND CORNS, FRESH FROM THE FARM
We don't need to import farm foods ever again!
MONTGOMERY, RED COUNTY -- This day, we have noticed a beautiful flower blooming at the Montgomery Farm. Besides the flower there are several fruits and vegetables we have always loved, such as apples! Of course, we didn't miss the beautiful cows eating the excessive grass around the farm.
It's a great sign that the agriculture sector is going back to the top! The plants are locally planted by our own farmers located at Montgomery. We didn't even expect the return of our local farmers, but it's great to have them back! In 1996, Red County Police Department, the county's former law enforcement agency, arrested several farmers and the Montgomery Farms also seized operations because of illegal activity such as planting and distribution of illegal narcotics. The old farmers were also suspected of causing chaos around Red County by shouting and shooting at civilians.
After almost nine years, we don't have to rely on agricultural imports, as the farmers of Red County are back to serve some milk!

Welcome to Red County Roleplay's newsletter of May 2014. The last couple of weeks have been rather chaotic for RC:RP, however we've pulled ourselves through, and we're still standing up high. The community haven't really been kept up to date with the information like you were assured, so I'd like to begin by apologising for that, however here is everything that you need to know! If you have any questions or concerns about any information that has been released in this newsletter then please do not hesitate to contact me, which then I will do my best to put your mind at rest. But, without further ado, here we go.
Recently, as you may or may not know, the server has been down for hours on end and has been consistently crashing, this issue is being investigated at the moment and should be resolved shortly, I have personally added several debug methods and gone through lines of code in an attempt to identify the issue however I do not have an extreme amount of knowledge in the language that RC:RP is scripted in so I hit a dead end. With Booth's recent return, he should be able to identify the issue and resolve it. I am also now able to restart the server should an issue occur in order to ensure a minimal amount of downtime. If the server does crash, please contact myself, fr0st or TommyB and we will attempt to get things up and running as soon as possible.
Development has always been rocky for RC:RP, however with Booth's recent return hopefully that should "get the ball rolling" again, you could say. The script plays a massive part in player appeal and an update is quite obviously something that you enjoy logging on and seeing, however that hit a dead end as we began searching for a developer. Booth has notified us that he is able to develop for RC:RP again due to a mass amount of free time that he has and is beginning to work on the script with immediate effect, with this being said, the community will begin to see more bug fixes, script updates and script development as a whole. DonutSeller has been working hard to update the User Control Panel, however you can find out more about that here: http://redcountyrp.com/changelog/server
You may have noticed a few new pieces of mapping around the server recently, our mapping team is hard at work coming up with new ideas to bring the server to life, but they're not the only ones that can have their say. We're currently allowing business owners to purchase a custom interior for their business, and faction leaders to get exterior and interior mappings. We're also accepting ideas for maps for public spaces, if you have any, so if you have any ideas, or want to get something mapped for your faction/business, don't hesitate to contact me!
TommyB has recently locked the forum and it has now been unlocked, during this time TommyB was updating the forum theme to the latest version in order to keep the forum up to date with the new features and for further optimization. The forum theme lag issue that everybody has been having has (hopefully!) been fixed in this update and shall not be an issue further. You will not notice an enormous number of changes to the forum theme because the majority of it is "behind the scenes" in order to ensure it's as efficient as possible and loads as quickly as possible.
The playerbase has begun to drop drastically, and there has been a recent decrease in the amount of people registering. There are several ways that this could be changed and at the moment, our main aim is to identify the best way and begin to make the server appeal to not only new players, but current players. I would really love the opinion of the community on this topic and would appreciate it if the community gave their input on this. The SA:MP forum advertisement contest has been closed however in the upcoming weeks, there will be a discussion about re-opening that and allowing you, as the community to assist in the improvement of the server in general.
This is a big topic to you as a community member. What makes YOU happy, what would make you log on the server more and how do you feel we could improve the server? At the moment, I'm all ears open for ways of improving the server and constructive criticism. As absurd as this sounds, you probably know what the server want more than me; you play it everyday and you know what's wrong and what issues need to be identified. I need you to come forward and voice your opinion and even assist in suggesting ways of improvement, the point I'm getting at here is, your word matters.
In conclusion, I would like to thank the community, the administration team and the development team for the countless amount of hours that they have spent assisting in the improvement of the community. I'd like to thank the players especially for standing by Red County Roleplay no matter how hard times have been for us recently, you stood by us and continued to roleplay and saw us through our hard times. However, May is going to be a new era for RC:RP, a fresh beginning.

Everyone who is attempting to connect to our San Andreas Multiplayer sever is having issues connecting, due to an illegal character that was accidently submitted into the San Andreas State Police's Mobile Data Computer (MDC). The only two people who can currently fully restart the server are TommyB and fr0st however due to conflicting timezones, they are both unavailable. The second that either of them become available I will notify them and attempt to get the issue resolved as soon as possible. I will update this topic with updates as they are made apparent to me. I apologize for any inconvenience caused and politely request that you bear with us.
Please refrain from making topics regarding this issue.
On behalf of the Red County Roleplay Administration Team.
EDIT: The server has been restarted, all is well!0 comments Written by BigD
