I also would like to see the map updated if at all possible.. I did the top speed of all the cars in MPH and KPH before, I still have it if you want it... If the vehicle is buyable at a car dealer, I tested it.. Note that any added vehicles after 2012 are not listed, neither are the RC vehicles or (pedal) bikes..

I would like to see a more modern look to it.
And it would be nice if you could see a picture of a vehicle in House and vehicles menu or even the posibility to upload your own pocture of your car, and a more detailed statistic.
And the map should be updated as well.
Benny can you briefly explain what sort of modern look ?
And I don't really think there's some need to add pictures of car in player property menu, it'll just take up more resources (probably?).
More detailed statistic ? Like what ?
And don't worry about map, it's already been added up in approved suggestion ;)

Most likely bitbucket repo that's private.

Its also != Think of == being equal to while != not equal to etc.

Eh wasn't that easy ?
And Yes Dev Team != Web Dev Team

Approved suggestions:
  • Interactive map
  • Persisting user session (already handled by Django)

Look in Dev Board, there's something about it.

My suggestions:

Suggestion one:
Dynamic pages, there shouldn't be a need to refresh whole page, ajax requests are cool.

Suggestion two:
Vehicle trading system should be done from browser too! We should be able to see who has put this vehicle, how much is it tuned?, what are the wheel types (stock or ?) and things like that in the browser (basically all details of the vehicle) and then we can browse and buy. Default pictures can be used. (custom pictures would be hard to implement, it has lot of issues, players have different car mods and graphic mods, so default is good)

Suggestion three:
Replacing shoutbox on the forum with a full time chatbox which should be available on the website as well as forum, we should be able to PM on chatbox too and use cb channels like ingame chat.


Searching of a player is already awesome and rest everything is cool!

And maybe a new house catalogue too.   :OK:

Samp isnt going to survive for long and so is the server. Harsh or whatever you call it but this is the reality..Everything comes to an End.

New chat will use ajax and fetch messages from chat API, but it's not implemented yet. It will be read-only because there's some technical and management issues with two-way chat, one of them is moderation; how do we mute/kick someone posting from the website? Also messages could be flooding in, but maybe separate cb channel for those who want to talk with users from website could be implemented.
If you have the technical knowledge, you can apply for web dev team. There is a lot of work so we could use some help.

Traded vehicles will also have their own page, but it will be read-only as it would be too difficult to reliably sync vehicle data and player data across website and server; I think driving to the log to see and purchase vehicle is more realistic and more fun.

@Sorin, what's wrong with current house catalogue? Can you make a more specific suggestion?

How about adding an field for changing welcome message from website itself ? From Player Preferences page, it's quite annoying to retype the whole message if you missed or miss-spelt a word. Would be much easier through website because #copypaste and #edit
