Community Update #4

So, we have a lot to talk about. We haven’t had a community update for more than 2 years, damn!

Sup guys, so it’s Kar here.. obviously. So as you’ve all noticed we’ve been through a VERY rough couple of months and needless to say you all have noticed how inactive I and the admin team have been over the past couple of months and I now with great pleasure to say that no longer will you see such failure coming from me or KCNR. 2017 has probably been the worse year for us with all these attacks especially in February.. it all started going downhill from then. There wasn’t much we can do about it. Players from certain countries started causing constant rampage on the server, even players from my OWN country started and are still causing rampage on the server. We decided to temporarily ban these countries. It helped bring the server back to a calm state but losing a lot of players. It was worth it in my opinion. I don’t know what’s wrong with some of these players, some of them don’t even hate KCNR, they just want to cause rampage.

KCNR got it’s popularity because it was a server that people could come in and play without any disturbances, any cursing, any rdmers. It was once paradise. I don’t know where that paradise has gone.

From today, I stand to bring this paradise back. Bring KCNR back to quality. Bring back constant updates. Version 20 is ending early, it took too long to complete. Version 21 will begin shortly. As you’ve seen, the website’s theme has changed and little things have been smoothened out around the website and forums. I’m actively working to make everything seamless and bug-free.

In other news, SA-MP has received a very minor server update and a client update is upcoming, fixing issues with the launcher and hosted list from all these servers that are filled with bots. Also I’d like to say that SA-MP was also being attacked over the past couple of months and we got caught in that loop. A result of this is the hosted list has increased to $30 USD a month which is double what we used to pay which is now why we have a monthly donation goal (you can see it at the side ->). We really need this in order to keep the server running.

Tomorrow the server will be moved back to Europe (This is our first step in getting back in line with our players).

All countries are obviously now unbanned (Select IP ranges and players will stay banned).

I’d just like to thank Peter for even being so busy with work, is still supporting us in EVERY way that he can.

Thank you for your continual support for the server and let’s work together to rebuild what we have lost!

KCNR is shaping up! [Community Round Up #1]

Well, it seems like San Andreas Customs has once again upgraded their stock with reinforcements this time! Below is a picture that shows how these new reinforcements work.

Now at SAC, you may purchase 5 Armour upgrades, from levels 1-5. In the picture, the camper had no Armour upgrades and took 30 shots of an mp5 and you can see that it neared death from just 30 shots! Now look at the sultan, with a level 5 Armour upgrade taking 30 shots of mp5 ammo! DAMN that’s a massive improvement huh? Armour upgrades are worth it and San Andreas Customs welcomes you all to purchase this upgrade. It saves and loads just like any other SAC Modification. *note this armour upgrade only lowers BULLET damage and not collision damage*.


Oh, did I mention that you need score to unlock Armour upgrades? Yes! Each upgrade is unlocked with an achievement. 10000 score unlocks level 5 Armour upgrade, that’s all I’m saying!

Here I attempted to host a very cool low rider event, but sadly it died due to my internet slowing down dearly causing me to not see anything in-game but pure pause icons 🙁


The Halloween event is now officially over.

KCNR is on the look out for new admins! Over the past weeks of my inactivity, (I am now active again) I have noticed the decreased in admin activity in-game. This is not healthy. We will be experimenting over the next few weeks.

The KCNR map goes for a live beta test! Yipppie! Long awaited map feature is finally here! You may few the map by clicking here. Please report any bugs to Peter at his forum thread! There will be an official link on the website sooner or later when the beta test is over and it’s ready for the full release!

Version 18 is in full forced development! Great new things are coming to KCNR! You’ve already seen a few things implemented, SAC armour upgrades, improved Visual Contacts, Major crime system revamp, improved jail system and more! Right now I’m looking into how can I make cop vs criminal chases more interactive by using the new visual contact feature! Version 18 is heading down the right road with all those bugs squashed!


Just look at all those bug fixes and there are more to come!

Your refunds all will be processed, please stop spamming me about refunds ingame, on the forums and on IRC! The admin team are doing the best to get your stats back (Clothes may not be refunded, I’m sorry)! Especially with the lack of admins right now, it’s sorta hard!

In other news SA-MP 0.3z r2 has been released and this fixes issues with users with fairly new intel graphics card having troubles seeing health bars in SA-MP! If you have this issue, please update here!

I’ve noticed an increase in videos on Youtube over the past month, thanks guys! KCNR needs more advertising and we should all work on that as a community!

The hosted list is something KCNR lacked for a month or two, this decreased the player count for awhile, right now the hosted list is back and I can already see an increase in the player base. We are lacking donations here, not many people tend to see the need to donate. The price of the hosted list has risen. I paid for it with my own money, that’s ok. We’re not in a crises or anything. Just please remember to keep on donating to KCNR as we need your donations in order to continue running!
