Hey everyone, Today I wanted to share some sad news with everyone, and then offer some insight into the future. Due to personal reasons (particularly centered around ongoing health issues), @Connor. has elected to step down from staff/development position for Straya/Altis-life moving forward. This doesn't mean Connor wont be contributing at all in the future, but he will be moving to doing contracted work on a project by project basis should we need it in the future. As for day-to-day AL Dev and the options as I see it for dev moving forward. In the short-medium term I'll be taking over a large part of the day to day AL Development work such as updating miscelaneous systems/functionality changes Altis-Life senior staff will be doing all the map and a large part of the config changes such as accessibility of weapons ect so that our development cycle can continue in between more major changes that we recruit Connor for! To be very clear AL dev should not stall following these changes, it will just become a bit more diversified/will have an actual structure to it instead of Connor shouldering all the hard work. We are also open to people writing code for the mission however this will be blind (without access to the entire mission file) to ensure the security of the mission file. As such what I'm looking for, for anyone who wants to contribute, is stand alone systems/features built by you to improve AL gameplay, if @Mitch and his staff approve the addition and the code is of sufficient quality I will then work on integrating your standalone content into the existing AL mission file. In order to minimize wasted work if you have skills in this area I would suggest contacting Mitch in order to be given features that are more likely to be approved/that staff want. Even though this news is sad and Connor will be missed greatly as a regular member of our staff team I hope everyone will give him recognition for his years of hardwork and dedication; and from everyone in staff I would like to wish him the best in his future endeavors! He has added a huge amount of quality content to AL, including back end security with a leading anticheat system that has protected us from over 500 hackers in the last year, along with countless performance improvements that allow the server to sustain far more clients at a playable level than it used to! For all of this and more we will always be grateful to him. If anyone has any questions about anything related to how things will move forward in this post i'll leave it open for replies so you can ask them.
