Hey everyone. We're changing a few rules due to popular demand. We've already updated the rules/help pages, but see the full details below and feel free to give us your feedback in the comments.
Scamming is no longer allowed. If players agree with each other on a trade, all players involved must now honor their end of the deal to the best of their ability.
Scamming was against the rules back in the day, but it was changed to force people to use the /sell command for properties as a way to make sure house taxes were correct for the value paid. Unfortunately, that didn't really work as expected.
We still want to make sure players use the "/sell [Player]" command to keep property taxes working correctly. So, if you get scammed because you did not use /sell [Player], you will not be refunded, but the scammer will be punished no matter what.
2. Car bombs
From now on, when you are killed or damaged from a car bomb, you may place a hit on or kill the player that car bombed you.
This was always disallowed in the past, but due to a misunderstanding of the rules it was never enforced. There was backlash when we started enforcing it, so finally we have changed the rule back officially.

Are they annoying?
Are they being fixed?
What have you done to fix them:
We added logging to pinpoint the exact line of code causing the crash, so we now know where the script is crashing.
Unfortunately the crash points to a plugin we're using which is no longer supported, and for which there is no upgrade path. We implemented another plugin, but because we couldn't use the latest version due to limitations in our script, we had to use an old version which had different problems.
We compiled another plugin to attempt to replace it, however there were complications when compiling so it took longer than expected to put together. It's now compiled, but we need to retrofit it into the SACNR script to continue. This is what we are currently doing.
We rewrote a portion of SACNR into another language to see if it was viable, as it would solve the plugin issue. We've done 3000 lines so far and this work is ongoing as a last resort.
Rest assured - we will find a way to fix it, but it will take time.

Due to the recent "incident", there was too much hacked money in the economy. We have decided to roll back house + biz owners to the 6th of March
~3 weeks ago and reset all players' cash. House and biz values have also been reset, so houses and biz's will be much cheaper to buy and you'll pay less taxes.
This should create some new competition between players. Not everyone is going to like this, but give it a try - I'm sure most of you will change your mind.

Due to the recent exploit of another site hosted on our server, SACNR's database was compromised. You should change your passwords as soon as possible. Click here to change your password.
Our authentication system has also received a major overhaul behind the scenes, so we shouldn't have this problem again.
