Dude I mean in the game... I don’t need my money back in my ATM, I want my tag color back for example, I can provide I bought from my logs... that’s why I’m asking, I saw more they bought DLs in game, so there is alot of money which we need to get back but with proofs... logs or screenshoots, this is my question ? How and where, will be one special topic created bu Arran for this problem ?

WTF are you talking about... What's so hard to understand that EVERYTHING is reverted to when the backup was made... If you bought anything in-game obviously you won't have it when you login but any cash you spent to get it would be with you again. FYI there is only 1 donation reward that needs re-activating.

The best thing is to remove the earning limit for at least 1 day  (◔◡◔)

Why, because you know of an exploit..? :fp: Triple pay means tripled earn limit.

Pretty tragic and rough situation, hope the relocation goes along smoothly without too much of a hassle.

Through my longer than a decade play of MTA SA, CIT's been one of the few servers that stuck around for a long time, which I kind of took some solace in.
As if recent times have not been hectic enough heh, hope you guys bounce back fine.

Once you guys do get the new server up and running, might wanna conduct some stress tests on it just to see how it holds up during the worst case scenarios but I feel you guys would've done it already anyways.
Anyways again, good luck on getting things back online.

There might be some issues from shaders side tho. Mainly if someone has paid shaders for another server individual after the backup date (05/03/2021 12:00 UTC+1)  they'll probably lost their income as well as the one who bought the shader will still have the money he paid for.

There might be some issues and I'll try to solve them in the best way for both parties, however this being an ingame issue will take to have ingame server enabled to see the entity of losses. In the mean time I ask those who sold a shader with ingame money (AFTER THE DATE ABOVE) to collect as much evidence of their ingame transactions until we will be online again.

The last in-game remotely saved database backup was 05/03/2021 17:00 so again anything you did after that date has been lost. We will make sure to make up for this loss, so at a minimum I'd say triple pay event for 2 weeks and you can post your own ideas. I'd give a load of cash to each account but it's a bit unfair if someone has access to multiple accounts which is why triple pay is fairer.

If I understood correctly this also means any account created in those days will also be deleted (correct me if I'm wrong) maybe there should be a warning on the login screen to new players who haven't yet logged into the forum about this possibility so they'll create a new account

this should also mean stats will be lost so maybe a double/triple XP event should be in place as well

I am agree with this but please include the triple exp in civ job thanks. It is random so I think it's fine. I hope everything goes fine as well. Patience players we will bounceback.

Do not attempt to join the server that shows up on the main server list, some pathetic copy server is abusing an exploit that uses our server name and then redirects you to their main server which happens to have an identical looking login screen, don't be dumb enough to go through their shitty slow 90 MB download to then try and login with your account on there. Thanks to thund3R for noticing this.

We are still waiting for OVH's backup server service to set up the server and make everything read But unfortunately they haven't gave an exact date yet.

Hopefully, everything gets back as usual and if you need any financial aid, I'm ready to help aswell, and pretty sure a lot of people will be willing to do the same.

Before you speak ask yourself if what you are going to say is true, is kind, is necessary, is helpful. If the answer is no, maybe what you are about to say should be left unsaid.
