After our long presence on ModDB, today is the day we all have been waiting for. We are really proud to announce that we have ranked no. 1 in Player's Choice category in this year's ModDB Mod of the Year Awards! We would like to thank you all, our dear players and contributors, for your continued support. This would have never happened without it.
It is worth to note that we are the first GTA mod to ever win such an award. We hope that this will bring a bigger attention to GTA modding as a whole, as there are still a lot of fresh and amazing things that can be achieved here.
In other news, one of our developers, Cazomino05, has been experimenting with adding support for removing default objects from the GTASA map since the last release. This had led to the introduction of a few new scripting functions. These functions are: removeWorldBuilding, restoreWorldBuilding and restoreWorldBuildings, and they will be available in the upcoming MTA:SA 1.3.
You can see example screenshots below:
First screenshot (top left one) shows the object that will be removed, and the next two show the Fire Depot, which was placed in the free spot.
It will probably be a while before we can release 1.3, but you can test these functions today by installing a 1.3 nightly build.
As an ending note, we wish you all Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year!
