Altis Life January Update

Altis Life January Development Update

 

Hello everyone!

 

It has been a while since our last development update, and we feel that it is time for another one. First of all, we want to thank you for being patient while we work on the server. While we have been developing, we have been coming up with a plan for the following 4-6 weeks. At some point in the near future, we are going to have a closed testing session where we get a few chosen testers to help us with the development process. We want to keep the team of testers small this time, as we feel it will lead to a more efficient testing phase. We might open up applications, but do not be upset if you do not get chosen. We will be able to launch within a week after the two week testing period. More updates about the testing period will be posted on the forums within the next couple of days.

 

Between all the regular development, me and @Katt have been working hard on brainstorming new features in hopes to make the gameplay more exciting for everyone, including people who have already put in hundreds of hours into Altis Life. And we want your input. If you have ever had any ideas on how Altis Life could be any better or unique features that you would like to see (big and small), please feel free to make a comment on this post.

 

Two things we have been discussing internally are what to do with the rebel island and possibly also the whole eastern half of the map. We feel like both areas have a lot of potential but have been dry of content and unused at most times. What features and gameplay scenarios would you like to see in areas like these? Again, give us your wild ideas.

Lovin your work Guys.  I for one would like to say thanks for all the hard work you have put in to this, and i am looking forward to Playing it and maybe help with the testing.

I have always long thought that contect and things to do for the Medics and Mechanics (HATO) has been lacking, as you tend to sit around waiting for people to die / crash, plus on the down side people cannot really make money, or at least not alot.

So more for the chaps to do on a regular basis would be good. Also if some of the features are already out there or in our server, please ignore.

Maybe to take the Drug harvesting / Processing / Sell script and rename all the parts to ;

MEDICS

  • Organ Deliveries  - Pickup  Job / Pickup Organ / Delivery  (Get Paid) this also could be illegal or leagal ?!?!?
  • Drug Deliveries -Over the Counter Drugs   - Pickup  Job / Pickup Drugs / Delivery  (Get Paid)
  • Operations (illegal) ie  Map a few small buildings around the map with a make shift Medical room, and a Man on table or floor. (Get paid for doing a operation on a rebel (BOT)) police can check the locations. This also could double as a small hosptial for rebels and gans.

HATO

  • illegal towing and twoing /scrap cars.   - Pickup  Car/ Process Scap car / Delivery parts (with the option of the player paying off the HATO guys, if seen towing away)
  • Legal towing and scrap cars.  (ie Requested by Police) (with the option of the player paying off the HATO guys, if seen towing away)

GENERAL Players

  • Houses and Garages
  • Fast travel (Stations)
  • Sky Diving
  • Bars / Drinks / Social
  • Own a bussiness, Costs alot, but makes you a steady stream ove rmoney. Legal or Illegal
  • Fishing
  • Treasure (Sunken Wrecks )
  • Boarders / Check points
  • Goverment / Courts / Trials
  • Shootng range
  • Casino / Slots
  • Banks

Missions/Jobs for the public

  • Truck driving Missions
  • Bounty Hunters
  • Taxi's - Bussines owner  (This is a Must)
  • Taxi's - Driver  (This is a Must)
  • Scrap Yard Owner (Illegal HATO)
  • Scrap Worker
  • Burger stand owner
  • Gun Runner (Not phyical guns, But like drugs, just numbers in back of truck or car)

Thanks for the kind words @MaCk! Also thanks for giving us so many ideas. Me and @Pepper have discussed all of them. Our main goal with new features (and features in general) are to bring new, fun and interesting experiences to players. They also have to balanced and make some sense in the context they are in. Personally we both feel that illegal activities for server factions (i.e. Police/Medics/HATO) that you are encouraged to take part in to make money playing as said factions, don't make too much sense in the context they are in. To clarify, how would the Director of the Medics handle cases of finding his staff engaging in illegal activities that they at the same time have been told to do to make more money? That being said, I'm all for role playing as a corrupt medic for example, somehow making money on the side, as long as it is within server rules and what the handbook for that faction allows. That's our take on it but if you disagree, please give us your take on it :)

Now, continuing with medics and HATO in mind. We are aware of the issues these factions face, especially on a server with a smaller population. Which is why we have added events for Medics/HATO to our todo list. Basically they are what you called deliveries. We can elaborate more on it if anyone would like and if you would like to give us your idea of how it would work, just tell us.

Many of the features you proposed seemed to be tied to some kind of business ownership system (e.g. Sabotaging enemy factories) and that is something we've discussed and had a pretty elaborate system planned out for it a long time ago (3 damn years ago to be exact). We would still really like to add this to the server at some point, but expect it in a bigger update post-launch.

Bars and places for socializing and role playing are features we both think would be great. This also includes a casino. Honestly we have thought about it before, there has just been other things taking up our time. Expect it in the not to far future.

We thought the idea of hacking the police database to remove yourself from the wanted list was rather interesting and will definitely look into that.

A story mode with some quests is something I myself have thought about and it's something I would be interested in adding in the future.

Some of the things you proposed are sadly not possible without modding the game. A few other are just impossible to balance although I found them pretty cool as features alone. The rest of them are mostly already added to the server.

The past three days i have put over 10 hours into this server and it has some decent features, one i love is that the illegal runs move every restart and this is an amazing feature, you have a unique server but i feel like you need to advertise it more because its so dead that every person i see join, i offer them money in efforts to keep them playing, great work though, love to see it grow! 🙂 EDIT: would also love to see you guys make a discord to make it easier for people to get in contact 🙂

Hey @Joshy

Thank you for your kind words. We are actually in the process of advertising the server. There is also alot of work in the background which is why our activity isn't that high ATM. We plan to get everyone back into the server and playing along with introducing regular events. 

In terms of your discord comment, unfortunately that will be something we never do. We are very anti discord, but we do have a very active and reliable teamspeak server. Anyone is welcome to us this even if there not playing out servers. If you feel like a chat let us know where always on it.

Thanks

Vi
