Goooooooood Afterrrrnooooooooonnnnnnn! How are you today? I'm good thanks for asking...

Anyways, it's time for a Community Feedback Survey! We haven't done one of these in a long time, (have we ever? lul). It's way long overdue, but it's very important to hear the voices of a community. This is your chance to potentially make an impact on the community by expressing your frustrations, happiness, or whatever emotions/feelings you go through while interacting with the community, playing games, and doing community things.

Every question on this form is completely optional, so don't feel pressured to fill out every single one. I'm really looking forward to reading all of your feedback and ways to either improve or even disprove? (is that a word?!?)

So, what are you waiting for? Let all your anger and happiness out onto this form!

Stingrqy was a very good friend to everyone in this community, he made people feel comfortable and happy. He would always push forward and get the job done. He had many talents on-screen and off-screen. He would always talk about how he’s a straight-A student, at one point, he told me he needed to take a break for a month just to get back up in the A+ rank, even if he was still passing, he wouldn’t stop, he wanted those very good grades to get in good schools.

Around December of 2020, he was diagnosed with cancer. He fought super hard to try and flush this cancer out of his system. A couple of days ago, I got a call from Stingrqy (Ralph), and he could barely speak with me. After a couple of breaths, he told me he was just informed that he doesn’t have long to live, and needs to resign effectively. I promised him that he will forever be in our hearts, and all of us will pray for him & his family.

Today, August 22nd, 2021. Ralph S. 1K-03 has passed away from cancer. Rest easy Stingrqy, you will be missed very much. Thank you for all you have done in TX... Take care buddy.

Afternoon all,

We've recently done a revamp with our staff team on who does what, and what guidelines our staff members are expected to follow. We choose to share this with the community as either you might be curious what we hold our staff members accountable to, or maybe you're interested in applying, but want to know what you're getting into first.



Staff Rank Descriptions:
Community Director:
The Community Director is responsible for the entire network. They are in charge of the developers, managing the backend, frontend, finances, and pretty much everything.

Community Executive(s):
Community Executive(s) are responsible for overseeing all community and staff team operations and decisions. This group of people will ensure that the community and staff team runs smoothly, efficiently, and most importantly, professionally. While their main priority is to uphold superb activity and supervise the community/staff team, these people will also be expected to maintain direct communication with the Director.

Community Administrator(s):
Community Administrator(s) will serve as the backbone for moderation. Their primary focus is to guide their fellow staff members to their success in their position. These people are expected to uphold superb activity and be able to communicate with the Community Executives about any situations that they come across.

Community Moderator(s):
Community Moderator(s) are the front-line personnel within the community. These people are expected to uphold superb activity; moderate with professionalism, efficiency, integrity, and honesty; and most importantly, help those who need assistance within the community.

Trainee(s):
Trainees are the prospects of the Community Moderators. While these people are expected to be very active within the community, their main objective is to learn all aspects of...

Heading into the future...

Morning Everyone,

Before getting started with this, I want to say we’ve been a public server since January 2018, and it has been one heck of a ride. We’ve had so many ups and downs, sadness and happiness, good times and bad times...That part of a community won’t change, but a bigger part will be changing.

This coming Wednesday, July 21st, we will be going into a “Semi-Public” stage where the server will be “allowlisted”, and the only way to join the server is either by being in a department, or answering 3-4 questions and receiving the “Allowlisted” role, but! Be careful with this role, as if you get punished, you get the role taken away and will have to re-apply. The only limit of applications is that once you put one in, you have to wait 7 days in order to submit another one. That’s it!

Allowlisted Applications: #allowlist-applications in the Discord Server.

We hope you enjoy this change and will continue to make beautiful roleplay scenarios. oh btw, there are still many, many changes coming to TX, it never ends. If you think at some point we stop, well newsflash...we don’t stop.

Have a fantastic rest of your day/weekend!

Note: it spawns in with the colors White & Green. The recommended colors are as following, Primary: Metallic Rolled steel & Secondary: Metallic Black.

Textures include TST, DPD, DCSO, & DFR and the rest of the textures are just random colors I put together.

- Decreased the tint to 60 percent on some of the Whelen Pack vehicles.
- Downgraded the Shadow Security car pack liveries down to 2k instead of 4k.

Hello all,

After speaking with the Community Executives, it has come to our attention that people are being punished for “unrealistic driving” while higher command staff personnel don’t (simply because of their superior position of power).

Let me first start off by apologizing on our behalf for not addressing this situation and taking action on this sooner.

As you may have noticed, the FiveM roleplay dynamic has been rapidly evolving from a strict and rigorous DOJ-styled environment to a more relaxed and casual environment. Following this pattern, our priority as a staff team is to make your experience more enjoyable in the TX Network. While we want to maintain a serious roleplay environment, we also do not want people to feel as if they are being bossed around or forced to act a certain way when it comes to roleplaying.

Therefore, as of today, unrealistic driving will become the least of our concerns when it comes to department rules and regulations (and will become the least of our priorities when it comes to rule breaking). To simply put it, we do not care about the way you drive. Obviously, we don’t want you to drive off Mount Chiliad going Mach-2, but mild speeding or aggressive lane changes will pretty much be ignored. But, please don’t think that this gives you the right to start running over people or purposely wrecking into other vehicles. You will be punished accordingly if this were to occur.

So, with that being said, from this point forward, if you have been punished for "unrealistic driving," please direct message any of the community executives, and they will revert that punishment.

Thanks,
Ted Wentz

Finally, the lockdown period is over and the rebrand of TXDPSRP is here! We’ve come a long way in the community, with the same sort of “style” we’ve had since the beginning. Well, today that changes. Our Logo is now rebranded to “TX” and the forums have gotten a massive upgrade thanks to BenjDesigns and our development team for finalizing the touches.

As you probably already saw, the infamous “rank bug” was a myth. We’ve redrafted the way our staff structure works. TX has had the same structure for our staff team for a very long time. This structure has had its ups and downs, but now we feel that it's time for a change.

Our main concerns for the current staff team structure were centered around the assessment of the differences between the current staff positions. Due to the implementation of sub-teams, we felt that certain positions generally felt the same, as they carried very little difference in their permissions and responsibilities (such as Junior Moderators + Moderators).

Therefore, we would like to introduce you to the revamped staff team structure. Each position will have different goals, responsibilities, duties, and requirements to meet.



Community Executive:
Community Executive(s) are responsible for overseeing all community and staff team operations and decisions. This group of people will ensure that the community and staff team runs smoothly, efficiently, and most importantly, professionally.
