Time for a massive update ladies and gentleman. Listed below are some things that you will see released in this update:


Time for another massive objective for you nasty rebels to attack! Blackwater Weapons factory is the newest addition to our server. Much like a Jail or a Federal Reserve Robbery, the Blackwater Weapons factory will require all of your skills and tactics to successfully rob. If you can survive against the onslaught of the APD, and successfully defend your bomb plant for 25 minutes, you have an opportunity at getting some really nice gear. Rumor has it that you can even get some prototype gear, like the special carrier rigs, DMS scopes, and even and armed vehicle or 2. The more you rob, the more chances you have at getting great loot! However, let it be known that there is a minimum amount of APD that has to be on to rob the Factory, and 7 officers is nothing to bat an eyelash at.

Possible Weapons:

  • MK 18

  • Mar 10 (lethal version)
  • ..... and some hidden treats.....

Possible Weapon Attachments:

APD Changes:

  • Chief Helm addition

  • New Charges
  • Killing APD members results in a larger bounty
  • Charge added for placing bomb on blackwater
  • Other charges added

Gang Tiers changed:

  • Rank 3 can no longer pull out gang funds
  • Rank 4+ can pull gang funds 


  • DP Missions FIXED (both Civ and Medic)
  • Hands up stuck glitch FIXED
  • Vigi arresting FIXED
  • House Trunk Sync Fix (maybe)
  • Anti Air Fixed

  • Support for offloading some of the most resource intensive server side functions to a headless client
  • All data syncing offloaded to headless client
  • Conversion from some scripted functions to engine functions on both server and client

We'll be trying to offload as much as possible to a headless client so that the server itself does less, which may reduce de-sync and provide better server performance overall. Server performance as of right now is fine with 100 players, better than what it was with 80 with previous versions. The issue now is some de-sync, which we're working on now.

    • All map markers will have the persons name who made them in front of them.
    • Certain words are filtered from map markers
    • You can only place up to 10 map markers a minute
  • Modified the anti VON in side chat script
  • Side chat filter/spam prevention
  • LOTS more logging
  • Modified the color overlay, should be much better now.
  • NLR spawn prevention bugfix and radius reduced to 500m
  • Surrender fixed, for realzies this time
  • MOAR SERVER LOGS, like, a redonk amount


NOTE: Theres a slight chance, like 1/100, that you'll crash on join. This issue will be fixed next update.


The biggest change in this update is the new restart system. Theirs no need to disconnect before a restart, as your player data will automatically sync right before restart. Also soft restarts have been implemented, so instead of getting kicked from the server, you will instead be sent to lobby.



  • Full moon at nights, this means on normal nights without cloud cover it won't be pitch black: http://imgur.com/a/BkYrL
  • Post processing color effects, they change depending on the time of day so nights wont be super dark: http://imgur.com/a/VlV8m (top is current, bottom is new)
  • New server restart system. The server now has 3 different restart types. The restart notifications will tell you which type of restart is coming.
    • Soft, which will send all players to lobby and it then reloads the mission (its like a hard restart, but you won't be forced to reconnect).
    • Hard restart, just like our current ones but slightly better, shuts down the arma server and you will need to reconnect.
    • Hard restart /w update. It will hard reboot so that an update can be rolled out, the restart notifications will notify players an update is coming out.
    • Every 3rd restart is a hard reboot. So in theory only 2 hard reboots a day unless we roll out an update or decided to do one for some other reason.
    • Admins can reduce the server time in case early-restarts are needed. This means in case of early restarts you'll get regular restart notifications.
  • All players will have their data automatically synced right before restart. You shouldn't have to worry about disconnecting in advance.
  • More surrender fixes, like, seriously.
  • Vehicle collision damage reduced a tiny bit
  • Added a check to prevent people from holding down a key and spam unlock/lock their vehicles. Applies to most keys. Holding them down wont spam their functions as they have a 0.4 second cool-down
  • Disabled NLR timer for news team
  • Fixed issue which prevented APD from buying Striders
  • Added some checks to prevent players from logging on to the jail island, they will instead log on near it. This is to prevent meta gaming/ server hopping to jail breaks.
  • Map updates/fixes
    • Apd HQ's have more light probably
    • Some other stuff fixed
    • Some stuff added
    • Idk ask Toe Knee :P

Coming next restart.

Hotfix for surrendering issue where you can't put your hands down. I ACTUALLY TESTED IT THIS TIME...

Other small changes:



This update contains a fix for something that was causing major server performance issues.


  • Intro music is quieter
  • Fixed issues with syncing data while in events
  • Cleaned up some code
  • Updated SpyGlass, no more kicks for false no recoil detection
  • Cop lights are less-seizure inducing. Before it would go red, all off, blue. Now it goes from red immediately to blue without shutting off all lights. It's better, trust me...

  • Server cleanup of vehicles, and some objects is now more frequent.
  • Vehicle collision damage increased slightly, they were too stronk before
  • Moar logs.

  • Re-made nametags, they no longer get stuck on your screen, and you can see players in cars.
  • The bottom right hud for food and stuff has been updated so that it scales properly for all screen resolutions
  • Various performance optimizations server side, hopefully the map changes also help server performance.
  • Reduced to 3 cartels
  • New menu system, all menus fade or animate, and Y-menu has been remade
  • New settings menu allows you to save view distance and other changes, and allows you to partially reduce grass quality.

Altis Life Hotfix - 7.03.01

A quick fix has been implemented intended to solve minor issues with the siren change that was implemented with the last update.

Also being fixed is the fabled Ice Cream Truck. This truck was not intended to be purchasable by everyone and as such, has been restricted to the proper party(s). If you purchased an Ice Cream Truck, you will have 7-days to either sell the truck or change the skin via the Truck Service Station. Failure to do so may result in the truck being removed from your garage without comp.


As many of you know, version 7.03 was officially released this past Friday (11/20/15) and contained a few bugs which to say the least, were irritating to play with. This weekend was dedicated to fixing what we could with a few minor updates that were not able to be included in 7.03's original release. The following have been implemented and will take effect on the next server restart:

Bug Fixes:

  • MX 3GL is now able to properly switch between lethal and tazer rounds.
  • Teargas effects have been disabled for the time being.
    • Performance issues regarding how players were effected once fired prompted this. The grenades will remain available, however they are regular smoke grenades at this time.
  • Lights and sirens for the APD Zamak should work properly now.


  • Sirens for both APD and R&R have been updated to make them more distinct.
    • Wail Sirens have been renamed to Primary Sirens.
    • Yelp Sirens have been renamed to Secondary Sirens.
    • Primary and Secondary Sirens may NOT be used at the same time. Players must disable one to use the other.
  • APD and Medics now have access to a custom "horn" which may be used while in the driver position by pressing "G".
  • "Rank Tags" above APD players properly reflect ranks as shown in TeamSpeak.

New Additions:

  • "Rank Tags" have been added for R&R. Note that CURRENTLY, these tags follow the same scheme as the APD. BE SURE TO CHECK WHO YOU'RE SHOOTING AT.
  • Rank specific uniforms have been added for R&R ranks Search & Rescue, Air Responder and Coordinator.
  • Missing virtual icons have been added for the following items:
    • Browiser
    • Fireworks
    • Organic Burgers
    • Cupcakes

Not a big update like everyone is hoping for but be assured that the development and designer teams are working diligently to get what the community desires.

Odin Out.
