v5.0 and Reset 3rd of July 2016

Posted on: June 28th, 2016 by Dave

A little while back we promised an update of Street Crime.

Finally, that time has come!

On the 3rd of July 16:00 GMT Street Crime v5.0 will be released and the game will be reset. On this day the only thing that will remain is your character. Even your characters rank will have been reset.

Along with the reset comes a whole bunch of bug fixes and tweaks to existing features. Such as changes to plot, re-introduction of trade, and UI improvements.

Players whom previously purchased credits in the old version of Street Crime (v4.0) will have legitimate original credits returned, but not until the 1st of August. This is to avoid the balance of the game being upset again.

This release has deliberately been kept very minimal. In order to restore parity to the game and get us moving forward in a fair world.

It would be our pleasure to see you all there 3rd July 2016 16:00 GMT.

More information to follow later this week.

Pre-register with the email address that you will use to sign up to a new account after the reset and receive 2 energy packs completely free. Worth 80 credits (£10.72).

Pre Register for v5.0 Now

See you online!

Reset and v5 Game Update

Reset and v5 Game Update

Good evening,

I (Synthasize) would like to wish you a very Happy New Year, I hope you are all settling nicely in to 2016!

As you know, with every new year, comes new change. 2016 is the year for Street crime to jump forward into a better place, creating a greater experience to be enjoyed by all. I for one am ready to see the game shine back to its former glory. As you can expect with every new beginning, comes a little sacrifice. I must begin with a game reset to create stabilisation, in order to release new exciting things to come.

The Reset

When? Sunday January 24th 20:00 GMT

Some information about the reset;

  • All money and items will be completely wiped from the game.
  • All accounts will be removed and you will need to re-sign up with new ones.
  • Credits purchased and un-used will be held in a quarantine for 14 days, before being released.
  • Memberships active on your previous accounts, will be carried onto the next account. Providing you use the same email address to sign up.
  • All crews and domination will be removed.
  • All profiles will need to be recreated.
  • All casinos and city assets will be owned by State and made slowly available for ownership/purchase throughout the month of February.
  • Trade will remain closed.
  • Attack will be turned on after 7 days.
  • I will be actively looking for new helpdesks.
  • Promotional adverts will be created (to drive some new users to the site).
  • Voting rewards for external sites are increased.

v5 Game Update

Included in the January 24th reset is a new release of the game dubbed v5. This includes the below features;

This release is not a big release and focuses mostly on stabilisation.

  • Tweaks to Plot feature.
  • Re-enabling of Attacks.
  • Tweaks to heavies Feature.
  • Solid reporting functions and centralised cash + item handlers.
  • Tweaks to the UI.
  • Removal of the external shop, there will no longer be the option of purchasing credits after you die and before you return.
  • Simplified account death system. Opportunity to lose less when killed.
  • Tweaks to returning accounts ability to be attacked/attack.
  • External site voting rewards are increased.

See you soon!

Version 5 Progress Update

Posted on: May 19th, 2015 by Dave

Credit Shop

Some weeks back I posted my intentions for Street Crime. I am conscious that it’s now been a month or so since this update and I haven’t posted any further progress reports. So here’s what I have been up to;

  • I have collated information from various sources and found new bugs with the help of many of you (you know who you are, and will get a full mention in the credits of the new version).
  • I have moved the game to new servers.
  • Put the foundations in for better more robust development of the game going forward.
  • I have squashed a number of bugs (these are currently in testing)
  • And I am redeveloping several areas of the game. They are getting a medium sized overhaul and it will change the dynamic of the game. I am excited about this.

The question everyone wants to know is whether or not the game will be reset when the work is complete. The answer, yes. Let me clarify on a few things that will happen when the reset happens;

  • The game will be entirely reset.
  • Each player will need to sign up with a new account
  • If your email has/was used on a previous account, a lookup against memberships/credits/some credit items will be made and these items will be returned to you.
  • Stricter rules around duping will be implemented
  • Assets will be slowly released into the community

I expect to make a new code release to the game shortly. However, I do not have a date for the proposed reset, just yet.

I’ll be sure to try and post more regular updates in the future.

A New Dawn

Posted on: March 18th, 2015 by Dave

Hi,

My names Dave (Synthasize) i’ve been the owner and later the co-owner of Street Crime for as long as it has run.

Street Crime has enjoyed some good years and lately some not so great ones, it’s path has had many transitions, versions and re-incarnations. Through the 7 years we’ve been lucky to have had more than 100,000 players register and play, this is both humbling and amazing! So, thank you for being a part of that!

As Street Crime has grown up and matured and so have the guys behind it. I myself am quickly approaching my 30th birthday, long gone are the days of hacking on Street Crime in my university room, the days of no responsibility, and so indeed are the days where it was acceptable to not get dressed all day!

With that in mind Elliot (Sylar to most of you) has decided to bow out of managing/building Street Crime and I have decided to carry on solo. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank Elliot for everything both as a colleague and a dear friend.

So what does this mean for you?

In short this means, bug fixing, new features, new servers, a game mechanics overhaul, version 5, and a game reset.

Over the next few months I plan on releasing what I am dubbing “Version 5” of Street Crime. I’ve been carefully listening to feedback and combining that with my own vision for the future of Street Crime.

How as a player will I see this happen?

After you have logged in, you will see a new version number on the main page, this indicates which version of Street Crime is currently running. Each week/fortnight I will increment this until we get to what I think is worthy of Version 5. For example next time you login you will see version 5.0.0-alpha1. This will be incremented to alpha2 etc until we reach a beta which will be something close to a stable release of version 5. Each time this version changes a blog post and posts on our social media outlets will be made, explaining what has been done, and letting you all know what the impact/opportunities from these changes are. So please keep an eye out for regular updates.

I’m personally stoked about working on Street Crime again, I look forward to seeing some old faces back and actively playing.

With all that said i’m REALLY excited to invite you all back for the next chapter of Street Crime’s journey.

Stay tuned!

Dave

This easter on Street Crime

Posted on: March 30th, 2013 by Elliot

This weekend the Easter Bunny is coming to Street Crime to hide eggs, make sure you are online to participate in the competition to win some excellent prizes. We will also be running several offers on Credit Items during this period.

Join the competition now »

Easter Egg Hunt Competition

During this long weekend 31/03/2013 @ 20:00 and 03/04/2013 @ 22:00 we will be running an easter egg hunt competition where you will find eggs in various places whilst playing Street Crime. Prizes can be collected for collecting different combinations of eggs. Eggs are not tradable so if you want to earn prizes you will have to earn them!

There is no limit to the number of each prize you can collect so hard work is rewarded, get hunting!!

Credit Item Sale

Throughout the duration of the competition we will also be making various offers so make sure you login to grab yourself a bargain. Kicking off tonight with a 24 hour sale across our entire item store!

Street Crime: Valentines Competition

Posted on: February 10th, 2013 by Elliot

This year on Street Crime everyone is going to be playing Cupid and collecting hearts. Throughout the game you will come across hearts which require energy to collect. The competition starts on 13/02/2013 @ 21:00 and ends 16/02/2013 @ 10:00.

24 hours before the competition is due to start a new menu option will appear in the menu which will give details of the competition and show you how many hearts you have accumulated.

Be careful when playing Cupid as if you come across a black heart you will loose one of your red hearts! However you will also come across triple hearts which are worth 3 hearts but cost 12 energy to pick up so make sure that you have enough energy to collect.

Hearts can also be mugged from other players so why not take revenge on your enemies by stealing love hearts from them to prevent them from winning the competition! Each heart has a points value which will be revealed at the end of the competition. The top 3 players with the most points at the end of the competition will receive a prize.

Credit Item Sale

Recent development changes / bug exploitation

Posted on: December 13th, 2012 by Dave

If you’ve been active on Street Crime lately you will have been hard pushed to not notice tweaks and changes we have been making and the actions we have taken on players exploiting bugs. We wanted to write this summary blog post to explain everything we have done and why it’s so important.

Tweaks and changes

  • We have re-structured the amount of energy possible from a combination of perks and premium membership to 12 every 3/mins (previously 24). We made this change to make ranking a little more challenging.
  • We completely re-coded our anti script protection. All core aspects of the game are now protected from simple scripts.
  • In our re-code of the anti script protection we also added a strike system. A strike is received for not entering an anti script check in a reasonable amount of attempts. If you receive the strike you will be automatically logged out and will need to re-login to continue playing. If you receive 3 strikes you will receive a weeks ban for suspicious scripting behaviour. You have been warned.
  • We added improvements and fixes to the crew invite and organised crime invite systems. Which had become a little corroded as we’ve moved through the versions. They now work just fine.
  • We added some niceties to our helpdesk ticketing system to speed up answering all of your tickets.
  • We worked on 3 new competitions (1 of which has already been and gone) but we still have 2 new ones coming. With the next one kicking off on saturday 15th.
  • We made various security improvements to alot of key pages.
  • We prepped and got ready the crew chat feature for release again next week.

Bugs

As you’ll know if you have been playing we have swooped to cleanse Street Crime of some of it’s buggy accounts and players. Due to earlier glitches in the system some subtle but serious bugs went un-noticed. We worked hard to gather evidence and follow the breadcrumb trail until we found the perpetrators and the problems. A small list of bug fixes can be found below:

  • Script prevention on core aspects of the game
  • Higher than normal energy levels bug (super gangster)
  • Turfs not having correct amount of buildings on them
  • Players not having a location set
  • Airport script security
  • Redirections from protected pages now working
  • Valid referrals have been fixed

We hope you enjoy the tweaks and the fairer world it should leave behind. If you do find a bug or think something is not working quite right please do alert an admin, if we find that you have exploited a bug you will only have yourself to blame when your account is banned. In some cases we even offer rewards!!

Now that your all gearing up for the festive period and we are looking forward to seeing some super competitive competitions in the coming weeks!!!!

Premium Members get 5% bank commission!

Posted on: November 8th, 2012 by Elliot
