SAUR 5.0 Preview
Please note that SAUR 5.0 is still heavily in development, and this just shows a small part of the things you can expect from SAUR 5.0. Be sure to track the forums for more information about SAUR 5.0 in the upcoming weeks.
Current server issues
Hello, We are aware of the current server issues, they are being caused by a faulty switch that's connected to our server. This means that the server will appear offline for some people, while others can play. This all depends on which country/area you are from. You can check the following list: http://ping.ms/index.php#18.104.22.168 If the result is "optimal", it means the server appears online. OVH is currently fixing the problem.Wrote by Dwayne at 2013-10-17 17:54:49(11) Comments! Read
This is a tough article to make, so bear with me while I try to explain the full scale shitstorm that we went through last night.
It all started when TheGame told Infinate last night that he was mistaken for buying CSG and wanted to give CSG to Infinate so we could do a merge of CSG and SAUR. We decided to go on with this and went ahead to redirecting all players in the CSG server to SAUR.
Now I'm being a neutral party in this because I simply do not care what happens as long as SAUR stays alive, populated and fun for everybody. Don't get me wrong that I don't care about anything, but I really don't want to get too involved.
The moment we put in the redirect we instantly got a big shitstorm of insults and what not about what happened to CSG, not that we did not expect to get any insults or comments, that would be blatant lying.
Now I believe most of you know the chaos that followed, we tried to keep some order in what was going to happen and had a few talks with some of the CSG staffs about what we were going to do next.
Now I'm not going to try to talk everything right, because it cannot be set right anymore, what's done is done. Sensei ( Former CSG Owner ) immediately reset the passwords that we changed initially since he still had control over their server for some reason, and decided to start CSG again, when this is going to happen we don't know but I suppose that those of you who were with CSG and want to join it again to keep track of their forums.
Personally I do not think that the server has much chance to make another start, and I believe Sensei has had the same thought as they will put together what was left of CSG with Dennis' new server NEG.
Finally I would like to apologise for myself personally and on behalf of the entire SAUR staff team for the mess that was created, I'm not going to point fingers to those responsible for this because we are a mature community and we all take the responsibility for this.
I want to invite everybody who was involved with CSG that also thinks a restart is not very likely to succeed to try out SAUR, We're really not all that bad and we try to improve ourselfs every single day.
Thank you for reading,

ALCATRAZ PREVIEW (Part 1)
After days of hardwork,we are here proud to present you our results,the Alcatraz Penitentiary. (Say thanks to Pete)
This prison wont replace the LSPD at all,because we plan to make that criminals arrested can transported there (Streets > LSPD > Alcatraz).
Which mean that there will be two places in which the criminals get detained,the LSPD and Alcatraz.
The special facts about Alcatraz is that there is an open yard,a workshop for gaining money while you are serving your sentence,and a visitation room. More informations will be shared once we are done with some things,so enjoy the pictures.
Yes,that's right. The new prison is going to have an open yard to let prisoners see the sun for a few minutes ,under the watchful eyes of the sniper towers. (Also we plan to let you play basketball there)Wrote by Bangoh at 2013-09-21 12:15:00(8) Comments! Read
Two days ago we released our new business system, the most important thing of it is that it's not like the old one, this business don't give money hourly, instead, it gives money each time a player uses your services.
So, which are these business? The business are all the services availables in the server, like tolls, pay'n'sprays, ammunations, fast food shops...
There are two important kinds of business: Owned and rented, with the owned ones you are the sole owner while with the rented one there are more than one owner in which the gains are shared.
Wow amazing! So... how much does it cost? Well, the prices are for all kind of players, rented ones since $500,000 while owned ones starts from $25,000,000.
Right now, the system is in BETA, the rented business are not for sale YET, be patient and wait until its fully finished cause we want to publish it once it has not any kind of bug.
Have fun!Wrote by Beycko at 2013-09-11 12:37:13(8) Comments! Read
SAUR smoother than ever
Today we've made some major fixes in SAUR, mainly we changed some backend things to make SAUR load the player data smoother, this, plus with the changes Castillo did long ago, will make SAUR a better place without lag when it has a huge amount of players.
Also, today we purged 1375 abandoned houses, what does this mean? It means that 1375 houses have been put for sale with his original price. Anyone who has been inactive a long 30 days has lost his house.
The main reason for doing that purge, is because a lot of houses were bought by inactive players and new players didnt have any houses to buy for a good price. Also this will save a lot of forests from being logged as we won't need to get these wood to make the houses. SAUR environmental care!
If you are thinking about leaving SAUR for a while you should sell your house to anyone before, so you wont lose the money of the house if it is expropriated by the judge for being inactive 30 days.Wrote by Beycko at 2013-09-05 15:19:00(2) Comments! Read
