      Our GTA 5 RP Server is Live!   03/02/2018

      After conducting a few tests, we have fixed the majority of the issues reported to us and have decided to release the server to the public. We would like to emphasize that this is a hardcore role play server, and our Administrators will be issuing punishments to players who decide not to role play and violate our rules. There will be no warning point system, just a ban issued. If a player consistently violates the rules, they will be permanently banned. To join the server, download FiveM and view the server list. Once you've done this, type in "Life Studios" in the server information tab and our server should appear. After you've joined, you can customize your character and begin working for a company! If you run into any issues or see anything that's broken, please report it in our GTA 5 Bug Reports section.   Thanks!

      Current Server Status   03/12/2018

        Hello Community, Recently there has been a huge decline in the community's player base, as I am sure everyone has seen. This post is here to be a completely honest plan for our community as well as what has been going on behind the scenes for the past month. I understand some people may not like these changes, but high staff agrees that this is the best option for our community in order to push forward. In January, we purchased the PsiSyn Malden Life framework from a well-known developer, Repentz. With this framework, we planned on using it on a new map that was being edited for our server. We hired Cookies and Johanzon to turn their Winter version of Ergon County into a summer version for our life server in hopes that the new framework would work with the map. Development was going at a steady pace and the map looked really good, we were going to continue the development and push the framework out in the near future. However, there were some issues with staff and development, and the development of the new framework was halted for about 3-4 weeks, leading to no progress being made while our player base was rapidly declining. I took it upon myself to sit down and crank out the issues that were halting our development and I fixed the problems at hand. But after spending a few hours on the mission I realized that the Ergon County map was too small to fit absolutely everything in the mission. For those of you who don't know, Ergon County is a 4km x 4km Map, meaning it is less than half the size of Lakeside. With the current framework, there is just simply too much to place on the map in a way where it's not congested and cramped. It was so small in fact, that we were going to have to remove helicopters completely because you could get anywhere on the map in less than a minute. So I talked it over to the staff involved with the current development and decided that Ergon county wasn't going to work and that we needed something else. So, after some talking, we decided that it would be best to go back to Erie County. From the last time this community was on Erie, it was one island that was semi-functional and there were extra islands that had no use at all. My version was not properly finished by the Development team when Chris Stark was still here, however, I am on track to finish the map in its entirety within a few weeks. With the map being fully functional with Multiple islands, we believe that it is the best fit for this large framework we have planned. Luckily, this framework allows for a lot of new content. So with Erie County it should work flawlessly.    Now, onto some changes that we as high staff are going to be arranged to benefit the server. 1. Removing the server whitelist - Anyone who downloads the mods will now be able to join the server without an interview or civilian application. With this change, we are going to be transferring our SQL Database into an Online Web Panel where Moderators and Admins will be able to perform certain whitelisting for things such as Donator, Gangs, and faction whitelistings.  2. Re-working the rules to make them a simplified version of the current rules. 3. Rearranging staff and LEO positions. 4. More donation opportunities. These may include Gang Bases, Custom Shops (With limits), and even your own custom Erie County Island! There are more changes in the works, but those have yet to be determined by high staff.    In all we are doing what is necessary to bring more people to our community, we know some of these changes may dissapoint some people, but in the long run we believe it will benefit our community. As of now there is no official ETA, as we are still doing minor bug fixes as well as continuing map development. We hope you all stick around, I will give out updates in the near future of how everything is going!     Thanks,  Arma 3 Life High Staff
