6th Jan 2019
First off, thank you to everyone who took part in the Christmas event this year. We had 537 unique accounts log in and play during this time and 151 accounts who took part in the event!
Over the time the event was live, 34,296 gifts were either delivered or stolen, of those Team Santa delivered 16,381 gifts but Team Grinch managed 17,915! Everyone on Team Grinch has been given a token to spend however they wish at the SACNR HQ building in San Fierro.
The top player from each team will also be receiving an extra property slot, this year it's going to be Squeezy for Team Grinch with 4,620 gifts and suleman_pro for Team Santa with 2,600 gifts!
And finally any player who delivered more than 1,000 gifts will recieve an extra token! Congratulations Squeezy, suleman_pro, Aaly, Vippy, Foxy, BAHKS, LilithV, Lorcs, Riqitch8, Markski, Matrix and Bestfriends.
Big thanks to Eero991, puuropuuro, Squeezy, Magmaring, Vippy, Gabu and Grayham for helping us find and fix some bugs during the event!
Next, we've got some updates which have gone live in the last few days which Markski has been working on:
Medics can now do ambulance missions, which require you to transport patients from their homes to the closest hospital. To start an ambulance mission just enter an ambulance as a medic and type /start
The vote on "fast"/"overpowered" skins removal is over. "Yes" won, so they've been removed.
(mostly) Fixed a bug which caused you to lose weapons if you died shortly after buying them in a business.
When a duel ends, now the accuracy of the winner is shown in the chat announcement.
Duels lost/won are now counted. You can use the command /duelsts to see the stats of any player regarding win/lost ratio and average accuracy. (If a field says "N/A" is just means there's not enough data)
Within the next few days we'll have the SACNR awards for 2018 up and ready for voting on, We'll throw another post up here when it's done. :)
Thank you to everyone who took part in our event this year and congratulations again to the winners.

Santa has been spotted in San Andreas once again, spreading Christmas cheer by decorating the cities, and he might've left a little gift for everyone inside their houses! You will be able to open these on Christmas day - you wouldn't want to spoil the magic by opening them sooner of course!
In the meantime, some of you can help Santa out by starting a special Christmas mission of delivering gifts to houses all over the Active City! And for those party poopers who don't believe in the magic of Christmas, there's a special anti-Christmas mission for you to STEAL gifts from people's houses! (NOTE: Teams are chosen randomly - players cannot choose whether they are Team Santa or Team Grinch, and cannot switch. Type /i to see which team you are on!)
- Fill your festive sack at Santa's "Grotto"
- Start your Santa mission with /xmasjob
- Drive to houses on your list until your sack is empty
- (Optional) Refill your sack at Santa's "Grotto"
- End your Santa mission with /end
- Start your Grinch mission with /xmasjob
- Drive to houses on your list until your sack is full
- (Optional) Empty your sack at The Grinch's "Lair"
- End your Grinch mission with /end
There will be a prize for the person who delivers/steals the most gifts during the event
There is also a special Christmas spot in the middle of each city where you could find random presents
The regular stats posts will return in 2019, and we'll see you in a couple of weeks with our 2018 recap
3rd Dec 2018
Some of these updates have been in the game for a while, but were never announced or documented.
Players can now shoot in their properties without gaining wanted stars.
Blista Compact has been added to the car shop.
Cops should now be able to take part in Deathmatch-related events, with no need to change their class.
Active cities are still random, but will no longer be repeated in a row. (No more SF->SF->SF->SF in a single game month).
When the active city changes, it is now announced on chat.
You can now activate an experimental HUD that uses the minimum amount of space on the screen as possible, sacrificing non-essential information. Activated with "/hud min". - Works better with kill-feed deactivated.
The Regular Players Club can no longer be abused by cops. You can still enter it without restrictions if you want to use it for hiding, but it will no longer heal you if you recently did.
Added a cooldown to enter and leave Ammunations in order to avoid players with high pings abusing interior changing.
Players can now use "." to send group messages. (.message)
Players can now duel other players with the /duel command.
Players in a duel won't pay medical fees, and are unable to harm other players. They will be given a countdown, and the results are announced on the main chat. It will also make fights more fair by telling you if your opponent used drugs or bought armour, and avoiding medic heals. Duels are ended when one of the duelers is killed, or is attacked/arrested by an external player.
Long haul missions can now be done in groups.
You can join a group-mate's long haul job with the /joinhaul command. This will allow missions to be completed by several players in a group with the same pick up and destinations. These groups of truckers can be as big as you want, and the first arrival will get a small bonus over the rest of the truckers in that convoy.
A new Ammunation has been added to Esplanade North, San Fierro. You can find it next to Pier 69.
Threads and posts in Invite-Only forum groups are now private.
Command lag should no longer be a problem.
Miscellaneous bug fixes.
Like all new features, these are subject to change, and suggestions for improvement is always welcome in the forums or Discord.
Thanks to all the people who suggested some of these changes. (XTony, Polymorph, HUUMETUKKA, =DCM=Kraken, =DCM=Viper, Roel, wT_Wassaby)
