The Grinch….and much more!

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

Today we have added further developments to Street Crime. Below is a summary of what we have added.

Christmas Pack

We have added a Christmas Pack in the Credit Item Store where you get over 200 credits worth of items for just 80 credits! It will only be available at this discounted price for a limited time only so be sure to snap yours up quick!

Within the Christmas Pack is a Christmas Pack special “The Grinch”. The Grinch is not available separately in the Credit Item Store and can only be obtained by purchasing the Christmas Pack. The Grinch allows you to steal Presents from other players Christmas Trees!!

Once you have activated The Grinch you can go to a players profile then click on the View Turf button under the actions bar.

Please note each player can only purchase 1 Christmas Pack each.

More Premium Membership Perks

As a way to say thank you to our Premium Members we have now allowed Premium Members to deposit double the amount of normal members in the City Bank which is $1,000,000,000.

In addition to this Premium Members also get a 33% higher interest rate at the City Bank when depositing money. This is available on both daily and weekly banks.

We have plans to improve our Premium Memberships even further, so stay tuned for further updates.

Competition Update

Congratulations to the winners of the first competition. The second competition is now underway and is due to finish at 21:00 game time this evening. If you have not managed to participate in either of the first two competition don’t worry as we have our 3rd Christmas Competition starting on 22/12/2012 at 18:00.

Once again we wanted to wish you all a Happy Christmas and we hope you enjoy the new additions.

Recent development changes / bug exploitation

Thursday, December 13th, 2012

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.


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!!!!
