Good news! .com and .nl are getting updated with the coming versions. The devs are starting with Casinos:
KCode Portugal
Hey guys, we're bringing back old casinos style with adaptation.
The version lasts too few for the new system to work, there is a big % of time where casinos are held by Local Mob and not playable at all, so we've decided to adapt it to respect the current way of the game.

You can read more about it in: http://omerta.wiki/display/OMERTA/Casino

This will run on NL this version (tomorrow) and later on COM (next reset). (Applies only to v4 at this moment)
I would like to ask to keep it under this topic if you guys want to discuss about it, we are aware that this is a temporary solution for one of the many problems.


Note: The linked wiki contains a lot of information specific to .dm and other v5 versions. Only the Casino updates are coming to .com and .nl next version. .com and .nl will not be upgraded to v5 next version.

Please keep your feedback constructive, specific and stay on topic.

Kcode your doing good ;)
but plssssssssssss don't change so much in lay out, I couldn't even find the logout button last time I regged :(

The layout won't change that much, it's all about making it easier to interact with your character (living the roleplay) but keeping the same Omerta spirit we're used to.

Sorry, we are still updating the wiki and I am checking what information is missing.
Hmm where did I read this before.... ah yes, 2008.

Why are the devs even bothering changing these sorts of elements in the game? You're allready acknowledging the elephant in the room ("the version lasts too few for the new system to work" & "we are aware that this is a temporary solution for one of the many problems") .... well hellooow?

Hello mate, I was not in the company (or even close to think I would be here) in 2008.
This are temporary solutions that are within our possibilities to invest and fix on a decent timeline for this versions.

As you say, we're aware of the elephant and it's being fixed (You can play v5 and all last-changes in https://omerta.dm, come and help us moving the elephant :P)

V5 is not ready for a version like COM and NL and we're slowly improving it's stability and reaching our goals before we can put in the main versions together with decent marketing campaigns to refresh the playerbase into the nice game we all want.

As I said before, this are small solutions for 1 of the problems. I understand what you mean, I hope you understand our position as well.
The wiki comment was not necessarily directed to you. It's simply getting rather funny for how long the wiki is supposed to be getting updated/fixed. To be fair, with Bramble running her two-faced policies, I'm sure having an outdated wiki could be rather convenient from time to time.

Allthough I gotta give you kudos for alot of the changes in V5 (.dm)... that new version isn't gonne fix the elephant in the room (mainly caused by all problems on .com)
Before fixing any of the ingame problems (suicides, casinos, HOF, etc), try making a clear overall game policy (yes, a wiki) first. I can't possibly begin to describe how many players quit this game because of Bramble and her 'team':

1. Banning people on the forum for (constructive) critisism;
2. Akilling alot of accounts on friday night right before every person with administrative rights is leaving for weekend. Informing these players the following monday morning (while having been stuck in an empty #help channel all weekend) that their cases will be looked at. Tuesday morning she can easily mass reply all those players saying "3 day revive policy bad luck bruh";
3. Akills without giving any means of explanation;
4. Revives contrary to the 'usual policy' - if there is any;
5. Bug reports not taken care off;
6. Different policies performed when bugs are caught/fixed;
6. <File your complaint here>

Sure, there's alot of room for improvement ingame wise. Positive point is that most people in the community are interested in giving you constructive critisism for these problems. Usually that mainly happens on this forum cause on the ingame forum the Fuherin won't allow much critisism.

The larger chunk of work however is fixing these game changing policies. I know the management of this game tries to avoid acknowledging there is being payed for ingame advantages - hence they named these advantages donating codes (surely that has nothing to do with legal work). Weirdly the players don't feel like that at all. I don't think it's too much to ask for a clear game policy after like... (when were these dc's introduced? v3?) +/- 8 years by now.

+1
this game is runned by maffia rules so it seems

Its great you guys bring old stuff, how about bring back old ranking system ?
and shooting in the bottle
its just bullshit, cause i remember "Well done Chief" words even u are a soldier/swindler..
tbh, i want to see the Killing Skill back, but not with bottle or shooting range. Only KILLS ^^
its fucking Killing Skill, not Shooting Skill..

i think this calculate will be fair for KS, if we care about the dying risk:

GF vs GF = 4,2ks
GF vs CD = 3,2ks
GF vs Brug = 2ks

CD vs GF = 4,6ks
CD vs CD = 3,5ks
CD vs Brug = 2,3ks

Brug vs GF = 5ks (bingo)
Brug vs CD = 3,8ks
Brug vs Brug = 2,6ks
Brug vs Chief = 1,1ks

Chief vs Brug = 2,9ks
Chief vs Chief = 1,4ks
Chief vs LC = 0,5ks (cheap kill)

LC vs Chief = 1,7ks
LC vs LC = 0,7ks
Assa vs LC = 0,8ks

and if its a BF kill, then we can add +1ks as a bonus. (or depends on rank or 1,5 x KS.)

ps: Brug can shoot 2 higher, 1 lower; GF can shoot 2 lower; other ranks can shoot 1 lower/higher (except Hitlist and Inkills for Hammer).

ps2: No KS for killing lower than LC.
so we wont see 100% ks easily :P

why theres no test.omerta.com/test.barafranca.com or beta.omerta.com/beta.barafranca.com with based on .COM. who cares about .DM? (more rp, more bullets, more group crimes etc etc.)

and we can switch on/off any features via this test/beta site. so we can compare which one is useful or useless.

also faster BG Setup (maybe 10s per), and reborn when restarting the page (not rebirth). so we can test KA easily...

if you are really lazy about this beta/test site, just REMOVE 48H PROTECTION in reset fun, and do lower waiting times (for villa/house, bg); so we can test there!
