Freeroam #1 Update (RSM V3 is here!)


Recommended Posts

  • Developer

The big release of RSM V3 is now here! We have spent many hours preparing one of our largest updates yet, thoroughly testing it on our second server and preparing it for when the time comes to fully move-on from V2 with new features that greatly improve gameplay and bring new activities to participate in around the server.


🎉 Update Highlights:

  • Parties - You can now create and manage your very own party using the new parties system.
    Type /party (/p for short) to get started.
  • Car Voting - Ever wanted to vote other players' vehicles at car meets? You can now do exactly that!
    Go to a meet zone and walk up to another players' stationary vehicle and some buttons will show at the bottom-right of your screen.
  • Server Hub - We've redesigned the server hub to be more accessible and straightforward to new players, serving its purpose as a hub.
    You can access many of the important features of the server from this one interface now! Press F1 (by default) to access it anytime.
  • Zone Improvements - Zones have improved functionality compared to before, with support for per-zone speed limiters and more.
    Currently, only a couple of zones have speed limiters applied - speed limiters are specially configured on a per-zone basis, and limit player vehicles depending on a few factors, such as distance.
  • Server-wide Optimisation - We've spent time optimising and refactoring old code for better FPS for the players that need it the most.
    Aside from FPS improvements, other improvements were made that increase general performance across the server, resulting in less overall lag!
  • Other QoL Improvements - We're now entering a new era of FiveM where it's becoming increasingly more useful to have certain keys be configurable.
    For example, you can now configure the key bindings of many features around the server via Settings > Key Bindings> FiveM.

There's a lot more work that has been in testing for a few months that go too far back, but these are all of the changes that we've made since the beginning of March that server #1 now has going for it.



Thanks for everyone's patience during the testing and preparation of this update, and a HUGE shout out to all of those that submitted bug reports and suggestions that overall helped us develop and implement various features around the server.


For the future, moving ahead with our plans for a better workflow, server #2 will be used (as it has been for the past few months!) as a staging server for testing upcoming updates to server #1.


Server #1 will be receiving periodic and ironed-out updates that should have less bugs and more functionality due to the new 'staging' workflow that we'll be introducing.


Thanks once again for the patience, expect more updates in the coming weeks! 🙂
