    Over the past few months, OzzyGaming and our FiveM server/team have gone through many changes. Some we are happy and proud of and some that are upsetting. Over recent weeks, our community has been facing increasing server attacks, advertisements, doxing, poaching and general propaganda from a new FiveM community in the region, named ‘Australis Gaming’. Australis is a community founded almost exclusively by former disgruntled OzzyGaming staff members. While we don’t wish to name or accuse individuals of this community, we are certain as to their members being behind this due to multiple reports from loyal community members reporting their poaching attempts telling people to join Australis. A lot of misinformation has been spread about OzzyGaming and we would like to clear up these stories. Australis representatives have been coming onto our services and advertising the following: “OzzyGaming staff are banning anyone who plays on Australis!” False. This is simply a lie. The spirit of FiveM is to be a collaborative community. We here at OzzyGaming welcome you to play any game and any server you enjoy and experience what other communities have to offer. We welcome competition from other servers as it makes us strive to be better, on our own merits. Us banning someone for playing on another community makes no sense and has no benefit. What has happened is many well-known players have decided that they would like to ‘go out with a bang’ when going over to Australis. Taking the opportunity to break rules, RDM, hack and give out money etc. As such, many of these players have been legitimately banned for those reasons. We have a policy within our staff team, like any other gaming community that you cannot be staff in two different communities. We also have a policy that you cannot be a business owner in multiple communities. This is simply a case of ensuring that people in a position of power are dedicated and contributing members of the community. Again I must stress that staff and business owners can play whatever server they like and will not be removed or banned. “Boss is leaving OzzyGaming to go develop at Australis” False. The core executive team are OzzyGaming veterans, dating back to early 2015 when we were an Arma 3 Altis Life community. None of us have any intention of going to any other community. If we ever got bored, we would most likely get out of the gaming community stuff altogether rather than move elsewhere. Boss is the backbone of our FiveM development and the community really appreciates his work. We found it funny and interesting that this kind of propaganda is being used. It's a real show of talent of what Boss offers here at Ozzy! “OzzyGaming is dead, there’s nothing to do and they aren’t adding anything new” False. I think it is fair to say that OzzyGaming is leading development for FiveM in Oceania. Not only have we been consistently leading server population over the past months, but many existing servers are implementing features that OzzyGaming uses, trying to be like us you could say. FiveM in general lacks the replayability of game modes such as Altis Life that a lot of our community members would be used to. Mainly due to the limitation of 32 players and its non-combat focus. In saying that we are constantly updating our game and adding many new features that pop up in the FiveM community and things requested by the community. At the end of the day, more or less every server running the same game mode is going to be fundamentally the same. New servers can be fun for the first week while you grind, but then it just becomes more of the same. People stay for the community, not the features. “If you join Australis, we’ll give you +1 cop rank of what you are in Ozzy!” Maybe true? I would be worried about how disciplined, structured and fair a police force would be when they simply give out promotions and ranks just to join their server from another community. This is a direct attempt at poaching members by offering rewards to move over there and it’s honestly a sad and disappointing tactic. If you are going to make a server, you want people to be attracted by their own free-will by simply being better. If you need to bait people into joining, you must not have much faith in your product. OzzyGaming entered the FiveM market with no experience or playerbase in the game and have grown to where we are today without any of these tactics and I think that really speaks for itself. “Ryan is making a profit by using his own servers and is breaching FiveM policies” False. Ryan (Server owner) is also the owner of his own server hosting business, Faded Servers and has been hosting OzzyGaming services on his servers since late last year. Faded servers are clearly advertised on our website. Ryan invoices OzzyGaming for the market rate of the servers and services that we use. If anything we get a better deal with extra bandwidth and obvious technical support benefits. Servers cost money and we would be paying the same if not more by using another server provider. While yes, Ryan does make a small profit through the sale of the dedicated servers, I would personally rather be supporting Ryan’s business over other international businesses. We could switch server providers and our donation goal/expenses wouldn’t change. This has no relevance to FiveM and their policies. Our donations and expenses are meticulously tracked on spreadsheets and are available to all of our admin team. We make very clear in our continual donation updates that we limit our donations and OzzyGaming does not make a profit, nor are any of our staff paid. We also work closely with FiveM management to ensure we do not breach any policies. It is a hard balance between providing incentives for donating and being perceived as pay to win, a balance we are constantly changing. We appreciate every single donation and the entire executive team has high ethical values. “OzzyGaming players don’t roleplay, our rules are better/more strict at Australis” False. This is an interesting and counterproductive point to make. Australis members are coming to poach OzzyGaming members, the same players that they complain about not roleplaying. Again, all player-bases have issues, not everyone enjoys the same thing and there are always some bad apples. Rules are a great start but they don’t fix much. I have about 5 years experience in RP communities and I have never heard someone say “Wow, my community has great role play”, It simply doesn’t happen. Everyone starts off in unicorn land talking about how they are going to be different, but it doesn’t last. At OzzyGaming we are trying hard to update our game to stop exploiters, hackers and general bad sports. We update our rules as needed through consultation with the whole community. Our growing staff team tries their best to be firm but fair. Our support system does work. Respecting that the community is run by a team of volunteers and that staff are just community members like everyone else, we try our best. “The executive team is a very closed group and won’t listen or let anyone else in” False. This one was actually quite hurtful to hear because it originates from one person we really liked. We won't mention their name as we are not here to defame any individuals. But shortly after the formation and early popularity of our FiveM server, we welcomed a member into management as he showed high promise and initiative. A manager in a sense is responsible for all aspects of the server they manage; The Executive team is merely here to provide guidance and support when needed. This member in question had the means and the authority to change any aspect of the server they wanted. This person explained one day that it was necessary for them to leave temporarily due to personal reasons, which is fine. Our role is purely voluntary. The Executive team as a whole were deeply upset about the circumstances and offered our support as we viewed this individual as a friend. His leave gradually turned into permanent leave. Unbeknownst to us, he seems to have felt another way. Yes, The senior staff team are a close group of friends as we have been part of the OzzyGaming community for years. We enjoy playing other games with each other and sometimes enjoy some private time, just like every other friendship group. But it is unfounded to say that we won’t let anyone else in. We make time to speak to anyone and everyone in the community. We work with and promote anyone who shows a real passion for the community and we have a history of doing so. OzzyGaming staff are entrusted with many tools and are given the microphone to provide a real voice for the community. I didn’t want to have to write this essay and talk down another community as I don’t enjoy being negative but it has really become a case of defending ourselves and our community. OzzyGaming has not and will never participate in or endorse poaching or defamatory behaviour towards other communities. We have a long and proud history of working and allying with other competing communities and it is a shame this one bad apple has deemed it necessary to attack us. Australis has been covertly recruiting/’poaching’ our members under the radar for at least the last month to the best of our knowledge. As well as spreading the above misinformation around our community and doxing our members and it simply needs to stop. It’s a shame it had to come to this as we have tried both friendly and serious communication with Australis management to no avail. We have decided it is best to publicly respond and get on top of the situation through this announcement. To reiterate, no one will ever be banned for playing on other servers. We respect and appreciate every single member of this community whether it's your first day, a veteran, a staff member or a donator, everyone is equal. We do not want a single person to leave and strive to improve wherever we can to make your time here more enjoyable. I would like to thank our loyal community members for coming forward with information regarding recent events and would encourage anyone to record and report any future occurrences. This has caused enough disruption now and everyone would like to get back to being friends. The executive team will also be holding a Q&A session this Friday at 9PM AEST for any issues relating to the community. While we are deeply disappointed with their tactics, we wish Australis all the best and hope they can succeed as a community on their own merits. How Australis plans to run a gaming community is entirely up to them but we kindly ask that OzzyGaming be left out of it. -- Kind Regards, Zaydan OzzyGaming Community manager Posted on behalf of the full executive team.

    G'day OzzyGamers. As always, if you have any suggestions for the FiveM Server, you can start a thread here. If you have found any bugs, then you may report them here. Notes: Another moderately sized update. Everything on this list has been tested, however, if you find something wrong please do not hesitate to contact the development team. This update focuses on bug fixes and progressing the notification rework. There are a few feature additions, however, the notification rework is the main emphasis here. Added: - Treasure Hunter job added. This is an ocean diving based job where you go from A to B collecting treasure to sell at the treasure dealer (you may want to purchase a diving suit from the shop before attempting this job :P). - "Light Diving Suit" and "Diving Suit" added to the store. Consuming this item will change your gear and apply diving gear. You will also be able to breathe for longer under water. - Anchors have been added. Press "L" to lower the anchor, and "L" again to raise it (You must not be in the driver seat of the boat). - CCTV Cameras have been added to the larger banks for Police to use in robbery situations. Additionally, CCTV cameras have also been added inside the Principal Bank for the bank robbers. - CCTV Camera station has been added to Mission Row PD, these cameras show the front of all major banks. - CCTV Cameras have been added to all drug processing interiors. People processing can now look outside to see if someone is waiting for them. - Holden Sedan added to the EMS vehicle list (this one doesn't roll over :D). - Maze bank office suites have been re-added. Modified: - Reworked the ANZ phone transfer app, this now will display transaction information. - Reworked Police notifications, now much cleaner and with more information. - Reworked Jail notifications. - You can now only send people to jail for a maximum of 50 minutes. - Reworked the /report system. - Reworked the notifications for player robbing. These notifications now show more information about the robber... - Player join/leave + Death notifications font have been changed. - Airlines job vehicle unlocks has been redone in accordance with the requests from Airlines management. - Unicornjob has been modified in accordance with requests from their management (Mixology is now available for Bartenders, and the vault is now only available for the Boss and their 2IC). - Twilight garage has been relocated to a parking lot nearby. Fixed: - Exploit with reviving. Revive reward has been re-added. - The issue with the job vehicle seller and the low-end car dealer not properly saving vehicle information to the database. - The issue with property colour types not applying. - A few Airlines markers and markers for a few other jobs.

    G'day OzzyGamers. As always, if you have any suggestions for the FiveM Server, you can start a thread here. If you have found any bugs, then you may report them here. Notes: This is a small update mainly consisting of mainly bug fixes and just simple changes. Notable changes are that new players will now spawn at the Airport. Additionally, when you die, you will now spawn at the airport, this is mainly to make it harder for people to re-engage in role-play to further emphasis death. You may also notice that we have moved the Legion Square garage a couple of blocks to the west in the hopes that it might mitigate the constant trolling in Legion Square. We have also reverted our lock script back to the base ESX version as this has the least amount of issues with it, unfortunately, most lock scripts suffer from de-sync issues as a result of how Grand Theft Auto 5 handles locking vehicles, there is not much we can do to mitigate this. Added: - Bike stand to the airport for new players to access. - Tablet (Press "M" to open the Tablet). This has basic information, however, in the future, this is where a CAD will be located. - Police/EMS placeables menu (Press "Shift + F" to access it). - Robbing script. To rob someone, they MUST have their hands up (Holding "X"). The hotkey for robbing is "G". When you are robbing someone it is imperative that you simply only have the gun in your hand, there is no need to point it otherwise it will not work. - NPC skin selector at most clothing stores, if you wish to revert to your basic character model, you must re-log. - Hotkey for crossing your arms (Press Shift + 3 to trigger the animation). Modified: - Many markers have been redone, floating markers have been fixed, etc. - Moved Legion Square garage to a nearby parking building to the West. - Moved Police vehicle spawner menu to the bottom left. - Reverted Lock System to basic ESX lock system (this will fix cars despawning). Fixed: - Police weapon/vehicle unlocks. Removed: - Random type popping.

    G'day OzzyGamers. As always, if you have any suggestions for the FiveM Server, you can start a thread here. If you have found any bugs, then you may report them here. Notes: Another small update mainly consisting of vehicle mod fixes. This means that some cars modified before the update will require re-modding. Due to the immense number of cars on the server (around 6,500), we cannot compensate players for this. We have asked that the mechanics (JCS and the newly added BBC) offer cost price upgrades for the weekend. Added: - The Star Casino has been released with a couple of features I will let you all find out for yourselves at the grand opening ;). - The Star Casino has rolled out their second line of Scratchy Tickets since the first round was so successful, you can buy these from any store. - BBC Mechanics have now moved into their new building and are pending a grand opening. - Maze Bank business apartments have been re-added. Modified: - After a very long process most cars should be able to be modded, however, it is possible some may have been missed, so if you find any that cannot be modded please let us know. Fixed: - Various resources that were lagging behind have been fixed.

    Greetings everyone, I am a little perplexed that I even have to make this post but we have mutterings among the community which are concerning and I would like to address them in the open before certain groups spread misinformation further. Easier to head this off than wait at the bottom of the cliff, if you will. "X server is being neglected because of Y server" This should be blindingly obvious to everyone but I will explain this in detail to help everyone, just in case you believe it. Every one of our servers has a standing staff team and at the moment of writing this post the numbers are: All servers (Executive Team): 6 staff members (includes Ryan) FiveM: 16 staff members Squad: 4 staff members (Excludes Molotov) Altis Life: 11 staff members Exile: 2 staff members (Excludes Silverback) CS:GO: (Assuming the server ever gets its little error fixed) 1 staff member We have a grand total of 1 staff member who is both FiveM and Altis Life - Which is Justin granted by Ryan, this is unusual because we prefer staff not to be split between servers. Claims that 'everyone is focusing on X server' are completely unfounded. While our staff may play multiple servers they don't actively staff them and generally only direct issues to the staff responsible for that server. Access to the FiveM servers is already an issue for the FiveM staff, unlike Squad (and Arma if we needed to) FiveM has no ability to reserve slots that we can keep open for staff to jump on and resolve issues. This seriously limits their ability to get on and solve issues. But every night we have a highly active helpdesk and almost all tickets are resolved within 24 hours and most issues can be resolved outside of the game. But what about development, Molotov? It is true, our development teams are quite small. Mainly due to lack of people putting their hands up but also they are highly trusted positions. They gain a literal copy of our server files and it is certainly not unheard of for devs to run off and make their own server (Yes, it has happened many times to Ozzy). So you'll have to forgive us for not being extremely trusting in this realm. But to hammer home this point: FiveM: Caldweld and Boss Altis Life: Ryan, Infinity and (Brand new, welcome btw) Nano Exile: Chris Evans and John Smith But what about my never-ending need for more customs cars, Molotov? Just a quick update with the FiveM custom vehicles. Unfortunately, we have reached GTA 5's limit on how many custom vehicles we can modify with the mechanic role. Simply speaking, there is room for 30 cars that can have engine upgrades. Anything past that 30 vehicle mark will not be able to be modified. You will be able to have minor cosmetic changes such as paint, however, that is the limit. Management has decided to set up a vote over the weekend that will determine which 30 cars will be able to be modified. Do not fret, this does not mean the end of custom cars, we can still add more, they just cannot have engine modifications. Over the past month, we have had people voice their concerns over particular vehicles not being able to be modified. This is due to GTA 5’s limit. The vote will run for one week. But Molotov, X thing remains broken! That is unfortunate but fixing things is not as simple as snapping your fingers and hoping it is resolved. Most outstanding issues have had multiple attempts to fix them. The games which are being coded for were never designed to be edited for this exact purpose - Even Altis Life, Arma 3, is not built to run persistent missions (hence we have to do restarts). But as you can see, there is literally no overlap between our dev teams. This all comes back to the main point: No server on Ozzygaming is getting more or less attention than any other. They are all parallel workstreams, they are not competing with each other. We completely understand that bugs are frustrating, they frustrate the people trying to fix them more than the players and if we could 'just' fix them we would. But no system is without bugs and efforts are being made to remedy issues. FiveM is having more time spent being developed each week than our most active players plays - and our devs do want to play games too. Nothing is quite as insulting as when a developer stays up late and loses sleep over working on the servers and then often well into the next day their work continues - only then to play some games at night and get hit with snarky comments about them always playing games and not doing their 'job'. Do the last 10 hours of work mean nothing for them to play a few hours of games? Please do not harass our dev teams, if they up and leave because of peoples gratuitous entitlement to their time then we will not have a dev team at all and suddenly everyone will see what 'nothing being done' really looks like. And no one wants that. TL;DR: No server is being favoured over any other and while we are used to the normal baseless groaning, we don't want new people infected by these complete myths. Hence, it has been decided to address this non-issue when normally it would just be ignored. Regards, Molotov.

    G'day OzzyGamers, After a very long process consulting with the staff team and interviewing our final short list, we have finally chosen our Altis Managers. I would like to congratulate both @Grumpy and @Rose2g on becoming our Altis Managers. I would also like to thank all those who put up their hands for this role, this decision was not made lightly and was made thanks to the direct input of the current staff team. As you will most likely know, these two have been members in the OzzyGaming community for a long time and have a history of stepping up to the plate when needed. They have a big job ahead of them, and I trust we can do our best to welcome them to the role and assist them to create the more combat orientated server our Arma community has voted on. As we now have two dedicated Managers for the Altis server, all Altis Life related queries that need to be escalated above admin are to be directed to either Grumpy or Rose. Again, a big thank you to both Grumpy and Rose for stepping up! Exciting things to come...

    Hi everyone, I've been roleplaying in various forms for more than ten years and have been playing GTA 5 pretty much nonstop since it first came out, but I've only recently heard about this kind of roleplaying and modding. I've been watching a lot of videos online of people playing on similar servers, and I've just upgraded my computer so I'm keen to start playing soon. I've looked through the rules and will be trying to get set up soon, but if anyone has any advice that would be great.

    Greetings everyone, It is with great pleasure that I can announce @Boss has returned to the servers staff team - granted he never truly left but that is beside the point. Boss returns to us as an Executive to look after all our servers and services. Please note that he is not a FiveM Manager and all related FiveM issues should be passed through the FiveM staff first - the FiveM managers will escalate issues to the Executive team directly. Just one of the realities of such a large server, the Execs are currently being bombarded by many issues that our support staff can easily deal with and we want to play games too sometimes! Boss has been supporting the server from the background with development efforts and will continue to do so but please do not contact him directly about such things as we have a large staff team to spread the load - we don't want anyone getting burnt out (again) from all the work being dumped on their doorstep. I'm sure everyone will join me in thanking Boss for his return and looking forward to his continued support for the server! Regards, Molotov On behalf of the Executive team.

    Disclaimer: These rules are constantly being revised, please make sure you bookmark this page and check back here on a regular basis. Last Update: 14/08/2018 1.0 General 1.1 Offensive Behaviour: Do not outright abuse another community member too much in role-play. Administrators can on a case by case basis determine what is not acceptable so don’t go too overboard. 1.2 Trolling: Do not troll. Trolling can be defined as continuously performing an action to annoy/upset or provoke a reaction from other players. 1.3 Ban Evasion: Do not try to evade your ban, fill in a ban appeal on the forums if you disagree with your ban. If you are caught circumventing your ban, the original ban will be extended. 1.4 Cheating/Hacks: Nobody likes cheaters, do not modify your game to gain an advantage over players. We do not need to expand on this point, you should know what is right and wrong. 1.5 Exploiting: Do not exploit in-game mechanics to gain an advantage over other players. 1.6 Job Vehicles: Job vehicles sold from the "Job Vehicle Seller" (Located next to the Job Center) must be used for jobs and jobs only, Strictly no hostile RP. 1.7 AFKING: Do not AFK on the server for more than 10 minutes. 1.8 Real World Trading: Real world trading is the act of trading anything outside of OzzyGaming FiveM for in-game items, or vice versa. Players who RWT risk being permanently banned from all services without warning. 2.0 Roleplay 2.1 Criminal Activities and Hostage Situations: If you are conducting criminal activities including hostage taking, you must be prepared to negotiate with the police, after each robbery, there is a 30-minute cooldown for your group. If you or your group are conducting a robbery or are in combat with the police you may not use sniper rifles. Only police tactical units are permitted to use sniper rifles in these instances. Continued: - Police can only be taken hostage/kidnapped when there are 6 active police online - Maximum group size of 6 persons for illegal activities. - Nobody is permitted to block the entrance to the building with a vehicle in a role-play scenario. - Criminals must attempt negotiations with the police before engaging in hostile RP. - Police must be prepared to negotiate with the criminals before engaging in hostile RP. - Players cannot force their victims to withdraw money from an ATM. - When switching to a larger weapon (shotguns/assault rifles) you must be standing near your vehicle or locker (you cannot just pull them out of nowhere). 2.2 Metagaming: Do not metagame. Metagaming can be defined as the act of gaining information outside of roleplay and using it in roleplay, for example: using out of character communication to summon a friend to help you. 2.3 Fail Roleplay: You must roleplay all scenarios. Fail Roleplay is the act of failing to stick to your in-game persona. This is a roleplay server, you must be willing to stay in character. Example: - Cop baiting/pestering cops so that they have direct most of their attention to you is forbidden. 2.4 Fear Roleplay: This is a roleplay server, you must be willing to value your life. For example, if you are clearly outnumbered in a gunfight, you must consider giving yourself up. 2.5 Crashes: You must role-play your crashes. If you are involved in a high-speed crash, you are expected to role-play this with realism, for example, if you crash into another vehicle/object at a high speed, you shouldn't then drive off like nothing happened, the appropriate action would be to get out and act like you've been injured. 2.6 New Life Rule: New Life Rule applies every time your character respawns. Your character must not return to or rejoin the last RP scenario which resulted in your death. 3.0 Combat 3.1 Random Deathmatch (RDM): You must have a valid roleplay reason to kill another player, randomly strolling up to a player and killing/attempting to kill them is not permitted. You must be prepared to explore alternative roleplay avenues, realistically, not all scenarios should end in a firefight. Example: - Walking up to another player and beating them to death - Shoot another player without a valid roleplay reason. - Using a vehicle to run someone over and subsequently killing them. 3.2 Declarations: Foreword: Declarations are designed to give players a chance to comply, you should not be playing our server for the purpose of just killing people, if the RP turns that way, then you must declare. When you are declaring on someone, you must include the following your VERBAL communication: - Demand -Consequence -Timeframe Example: This is a robbery, place your hands on your head or I will be forced to respond with lethal force, you have 10 seconds to comply. Players must declare before engaging in hostile role-play, this must be done in person, face to face. You must give the victim reasonable time to comply with your declaration before acting. Players must set their voice setting to "shout" when declaring, to avoid any issues regarding players not hearing each other. 3.3 Combat Logging: Players are not allowed to disconnect from a roleplay or combat situation. If your game has crashed, just let the involved parties know, and try arrange to continue the roleplay once you have reconnected. If you are found logging out while waiting to respawn intentionally, you will be dealt with accordingly, as this would fall under exploiting. 3.4 Vehicle Deathmatch (VDM): You must have a valid roleplay reason to run another player over with a vehicle, randomly running over a player and killing/attempting to kill them is not permitted. You must be prepared to explore alternative roleplay avenues.. 4.0 Safe Zones 4.1 Safe Zones: You may not start hostile role-play in any safe zone. If hostile role-play enters the safe zone, then you may continue it, however, you must actively try to resolve it as soon as possible. You may not steal any vehicles from safe zones. Current Safe Zones: - All Police Stations - All EMS Stations - All Car Dealerships 5.0 Emergency Services 5.1 Working as an EMS/Police Officer: Police/EMS on this server are whitelisted positions, it is required that you join the appropriate TeamSpeak3 channel at all times whilst on duty. All rules about the EMS/Police Department are located on the Forums. Failure to meet the terms will result in a kick, or even further, a ban. 5.2 F6 Menu: If you are off duty, you are under no circumstances allowed to use your F6 menu. 5.3 Weapons: Emergency service weapons can ONLY be transferred to another player in the event of waylay. *Note that all emergency service weapons will be wiped from the server after every restart.

    Hi all. We have teamed up with various Australian FiveM servers to combat the increasing number of script kiddies, if you are banned for cheating, your details will be passed on to the other Australian servers, and you will likely be banned. If you are banned from any other Australian server for cheating that ban will apply on our server. This is the first step in creating a global Australian cheating ban list. Don't cheat. Kind Regards, OzzyGaming FiveM Management Team.
