    Today we release DesolationRedux v0.3.0. This is a major rewrite of much of the SERVER and CLIENT code. This mod was started by a bunch of friends that wanted to make a mod, but were unsure at the time how to go about it. 2 years later, there were some glaring fixes needed. Thanks to Razer remaking a ton of the server side code, and helping fix up part of the client files, Legodev for reworking his Libredex, and myself reworking many of the client file configs and models, we can now move forward with a bunch of new features. These past issues really prevented us from adding new things to the mod, so had to be addressed.

    Now this will not just be an optimization update. We do have new content in that you should be able to enjoy. I suggest reading through the change logs.There is some great stuff there.

    The follow on updates shouldn't take as long as this one did. Hopefully we can get some of the things in that we have been holding back on, and also start to see more community plugins available. Until then, here are your change logs for DesolationREDUX v0.3.0

    Added: Update character and update object are now quiet methods to speed up synchronization between the server and the database

    Added: Possibility to limit the amount of objects returned by dumpObject
    (To use this feature, you have to define the offset and the amount of objects you want to have and keep fetching while increasing the offset until you get an empty array).

    Thank you for this Update! But i have a paar Questions:
    1. Is it possible to adjust the damages of individual parts of vehicles?
    If I set Damage to 80%, then every part since update for 80% broken, but so you can drive quietly, since all wheels are equally broken ... Previously, you have found vehicles where have several parts away or unusable. ..

    2. The Loot Configuration is in two files defined: LootSytem.cfg and Desolation.cfg... I noticed that we have too much loot. Then I commented out the loot section in Desolation.cfg, it gets much less loot, as it should. Is that a careless mistake?
