Happy new year! With 2020 finally behind us, it’s time to reflect on everything we have achieved together and look forward to all that 2021 holds for us.
What a year it was. There is a lot going on in the world, but there are positives to look back on as well.
- We’ve broken all player records. On the 19th of May we’ve hit a staggering 165k concurrent online players with more than 619k unique players over the whole day! Over 2 million unique players played FiveM and RedM that month. Did you know we ranked as high as #3 in the Steam player charts?
- You’ve all been busy on our forums. Over 778k new people have registered in 2020. More than 145 million page views have been registered last year!
- With Tebex being supported earlier this year, we’ve opened up a long awaited possibility for server owners to monetize their in-game content and for developers to sell resources. And we’re not done yet. We’ve been listening to your feedback and know what we need to improve.
- 2020 has seen our biggest UI update yet. In August, we launched a new unified design language across our website and in-game UI that many of you have been very positive about. We thank you for your feedback!
Now, what do we have in store for you?
- FxDK: This is what you’ll want to look forward to. Still in early stages of development, we are building an incredible developer toolkit that provides all the tools you need to build a server. A code editor, a world editor, and much more.
- Afraid of having your resources stolen when distributed through Tebex? Fear no longer. We are working together with Tebex to implement improved resource protection and provide ownership validation for purchased resources. With this coming soon, you no longer have to worry about ‘protecting’ resources through questionable means.
- To those who are looking forward to RedM updates: Streaming support has been implemented and OneSync is coming. Much progress is being made, so keep an eye out for this.
- Documentation will see a big update. This has been a pain point for many of you, and we’re working on it. Natives will no longer be a separate website, and all content will be reviewed and improved.
- Our Discord guild will transition into a creative community hub, and less of a support platform. We are launching a new support site this year which will help everyone get an answer quicker.
- Formalized release procedures for FXServer to help server owners mitigate issues. We will post a topic to update you on this.
- And of course, many more things to come which we’ll surely update you on!
Thanks to everyone supporting us, we wouldn’t be here without you. What are you looking forward to in 2021?
