    Previously we introduced you to our MTA server development. Some were quick to judge, but the truth is that we revealed just about a half of what the server delivers in order to avoid potential leaks. It was tough to keep the silence, but it is a measure we must have taken considering today’s reality. In addition, many things have changed since then; therefore, we would like to guide you through some updates that have taken place.





    Introducing Old School Force
    Yet another thing that has been on our minds for years.

    OS Force does not enable constant ghost-mode. Instead, every player has Ghost powerup allowing to activate ghost-mode manually whenever needed. The room also supports Spawn Protection making sure everyone has a fair start. As the result, the system attempts to deliver true OS expirience while adding an interesting gameplay element and providing unlimited amount of slots in the room.


    Ghost Powerup



    Spawn Protection



    Unlimited Slots



    *Spawn protection's duration was shortened from 10 to 5 sec. for presentation's sake.





    Map Store
    AV server comes with a system which allows to set dynamic prices, enable specific arena modes and sort maps by categories.


    Income



    Dynamic Prices



    Arena Modes



    Categories


    Income & Dynamic Prices
    As some of you might already know, AV introduced a system to link authors with their maps. It enables us to deliver income whenever maps are being purchased. What we haven't mentioned so far is that map prices can be dynamic:


    increase per purchase



    reset at midnight



    depends on arena modes



    Arena Modes
    Each Arena & Room can have various modes which not only sort maps by categories, but also enable certain functionality.

    Hard
    This mode refers to maps with a high level of difficulty. Such maps are never set by the system, and can be played only when someone makes a purchase. These maps are twice as expensive and they deliver double EXP. The mode is mainly used in DM and DM OS, but can also be used in other arenas too.


    FDD
    This mode can turn any DD map into Fun DD. What it does is giving every player a random vehicle at the beginning of rounds. In addition, if a map has "vehicle change" pickups, players are able to swap their vehicles randomly. Learn more.


    Categories
    Besides supporting arena modes, maps may also be simply sorted by categories. Multiple modes and categories can be applied to a map, resulting in a flexible system and a better user expirience.

    Universal
    Maps of this kind are available in all arena rooms. (f.e. both DM Classic and OS)


    OS
    Old School category is meant for maps made back in the g(old) days or with similar style.


    Cross
    DD category is meant for maps with Cheetah, Tampa and Sultan vehicles on 1-2 levels maps.


    Jump
    Shooter category is meant for maps playable only in the Jump room.


    BMX
    RUN category is meant for maps with BMX or any other bike. These maps are never set by the system.


    CW
    This type of maps is playable during clanwars only. Usually these maps are too extreme for default arenas, but don't deserve to be deleted either.








    Radar
    This is your ultimate friend, especially when it comes to racing or fighting game-modes such as Shooter, DD and Hunter.

    You can zoom in & out to see further and find players or map's items easier. Players' rotations will help you to understand their directions, not just movements. Customizations allow you to enable/disable all sorts of blips.

    Check Points • Powerups • Projectiles & Traps
    NOS • Repairs • Vehicles





    Zoom In & Out



    Player's Rotations



    All kinds of Blips



    Customisable






    Kill Detector
    In the last news we mentioned advanced kill detector system which features things like assistance and protection from frag-stealing. As you might have already guessed, it does more than that, much more.


    Assists
    Delivers deserved rewards to all players who participated in the killing.



    Frag Protection
    When several players happen to damage the victim, the system define the killer based on damage and timing.



    Accuracy
    Keeps track of players' accuracy based on amount of shots and kills. All the data is being saved to players' stats.



    Kills
    DD kills, Hunter kills and Shooter ground kills (GK).
    50 5 EXP



    Air Kills
    When either the killer or victim is in the air.
    100 10 EXP



    Mid Kills
    When both the killer and victim are in the air.
    150 15 EXP


    AVenges / Revenges
    AV makes it easier for players to keep track of their killers: dedicated blip on the radar will help you identify the bastard, and take revenge in no time.


    radar blip



    revenge messages



    dedicated stats



    Bounties
    Set a price on your enemy's head at the beginning of rounds. Anyone to kill the target claims the reward. The target may also claim the reward by killing the one who placed the bounty.


    radar blip



    min. 5 players required



    $1,000 - $5,000 range



    PvP
    AV implements Player-versus-Player system in fighting arenas such as DD, Shooter & Hunter. Players are able to pick score amount and make bets within a certain range. The score advances only if PvP players kill one another. The first player to achieve the score amount wins; however, the gap between players' scores must be at least 2 points, otherwise additional rounds are being played.



    radar blip



    min. 2 pts difference to win



    dedicated stats



    $1,000 - $5,000 range



    3 - 10 rounds




    Auto PvP
    Whenever players are not interested in normal PvPs or simply don't feel like playing one at the moment, the system simply counts scores against your enemies, and displays the info with "kill messages". It is worth noting that Auto PvP results are not saved towards your stats and no rewards are being delivered.


    automatic



    no bets & prizes



    no stats

    Mechanics

    Powerups are randomly spawned during the round following certain time interval. Spawn locations are defined by specific map objects and pickups radiuses.

    Random Maps



    Next Map Vote


    During the event, no player is able to purchase maps to gain competitive advantage. Instead, at the end of each round, a 10-seconds-vote is started for players to pick the next map out of 5 options. AV system makes sure that the best maps are being selected based on their mode, category, and rating. Chat is disabled during the vote to prevent possible spam.

    Individual Pages



    Leaderboard



    Statistics






    The Launch
    There are so many other features such as Spectator System, Radio, 3D Aim, Landing Protection, Spawnpoints Memory, Decorations Toggle, Garage, etc. We could have showcased more, but it is already taking too long. Therefore, without further ado, we would like to invite every single one of you to the grand opening of our server. Experience everything and more by yourself.

    June 7th, 18:00 CET






    The Rent
    Since the very beginning, we have provided a service which enables dozens of users to maintain their own MTA servers. Even those who have no experience or knowledge in coding can easily get started in a matter of seconds.

    Overwhelmingly positive response, ease of use and accessibility allowed us to achieve numbers we could not even dreamed of at the beginning.

    430+
    servers rented



    Witnessing happy customers who use our rent service for mapping, recording and playing clan wars reminds us why we do what we do every single day, and it is our duty to improve and deliver. We recently upgraded our host, and it is time to make a few adjustments to our line-up:

    €1
    400 MB 1,000 MB


    €2
    1,000 MB 2,000 MB


    €5
    2,500 MB 5,000 MB


    €10
    10,000 MB


    All current servers have been automatically upgraded with the new storage.




    We would like to reward 20 most active BETA testers for their unforgettable contributions during the testing.



    $1,000,000


















    $500,000
















    $250,000
















    $125,000


















    Staff
    It has been a while since our first recruitment. The individuals, who joined AV, have gone through a tough period of establishing the very foundation of our team and community as a whole. It is this period when all masks are off and true intentions are revealed. The level of dedication, patience, and loyalty shown by the team is remarkable.

    It has been an honor and pleasure to be and work with these guys during this time. You were the very first Moderators, and now you are the very first Administrators.





    AV is entering a new stage on its roadmap, and as some of you might have guessed, we are just getting started. Stay tuned for more updates during this summer.

    Sincerely,
    WW
