* Fixed inability to go to the previous page in the /racerecords dialog.

* Redesigned the bottom bar textdraw. It looks cleaner and more modern now!

* New vehicle export minigame. Every so often, a vehicle will be selected for export and it will be announced and visible with an icon on one's minimap.

* Introducing the long awaited Cops and Robbers minigame:

Description:

Cops and robbers is a minigame in which robbers commit crimes (typically robbing) and cops are responsible for
bringing them to justice. It is set in San Fierro where many businesses are located. Cops have a base in the SF Police Department
building and robbers have a base in Chinatown.

Cops should seek to /arrest (or key Y) criminals they encounter. Once a criminal is arrested, the arresting officer will need to
transport the criminal to the police station for them to serve jail time (directions shown in-game). The most wanted robbers can
be seen through /wanted.

Robbers should seek to find businesses to rob by exploring the area. Once inside of a business, robbers may /rob the business for cash.
Police will be notified of this and will likely pursue. If a robber is arrested and brought to jail, they will need to serve time for their crimes.
However, imprisoned robbers may /escape, or /bribe the officer who arrested them, or receive a /bail from a fellow team-mate.

Other information:

Refill stations (located at gas stations around SF) offer NOS, refueling, and vehicle repairs for a price.

Weapons can be purchased at the local Ammunation or through a weapons dealer indicated on your map. Weapons may also be acquired
from killing (players will drop the weapons they're holding when killed).

Vehicles are spread plentifully around San Fierro but they can otherwise be purchased at Otto's or Wang's.

The hospital is available to treat injuries at any time for a cost.

For more information, join /cnr and view /cnrhelp!

Other changes

* Smarter safe zones. Spawn killing is still entirely protected against, and weapons are allowed in them (or anywhere) if godmode is disabled.
* Weapon sets (/weaponset) can now be modified on the fly in permitting deathmatches (e.g, Battlefield, DMIsland, War).
* Gang ranks can now contain spaces. Example: 'Senior Advisor'
* New two duel arenas (a warehouse, and the LVPD) to accommodate duelers with lower FPS.
* Spectators will now be returned to the location at which they started spectating when finished (/specoff).
* Improved the derby vehicle lineup - fewer slow vehicles and more fast ones.

Map updates (thanks to @NoType)

* Renewed Jizzy's stuntpark (/sf)!
* New DMIsland map (click here to see a behind the scenes look of its construction!)
* New rainbow road challenge (/rr)!

* Fixed a race exploit which allowed for better race times.

I'd like to remind everyone that reporting of problems/bugs is encouraged so that they are fixed in a timely manner. It was brought to my attention that this exploit in question was abused by many knowingly. This is disappointing. Finally, I'd like to thank @Nightmare for working with me to correct this issue.

* Several years ago, there was an announcement of Infernus Paradise 3, but it never made its way to release. IT'S FINALLY HERE! @NoType has spent many hours perfecting this map, we hope you enjoy (and are up for a challenge)! Click here for a preview.
* Courier job/minigame: This is a solo minigame inspired by the courier side mission in San Andreas. Use /courier to select
a client for whom to deliver goods. Then, once one enters the marked vehicle, the mission will start. There are four levels and
a time limit. The locations order is randomized each time the mission is played, making this potentially challenging. The objective is to deliver all goods to their destination in time. Feedback for improvement/new locations is welcome.
* Added SEVEN new themes to /maze. They will change after every round along with the maze route.
* New achievements:
Punctual courier: Complete a courier mission.
Exporter: Export 100 vehicles.
Veteran player: Spend 1000 hours online.
Hitman: Kill 2,500 opponents.
Executioner: Kill 10,000 opponents.
* Prevented deathmatchers with full health collecting DM health pickups.
* Racebuilding option 'load existing submissions' now shows submissions from newer to older. Requested by Vertex.
* Players now respawn in the gang zone if they are participating in a turf war. Should promote more deathmatching!
* Jetpacks are no longer permitted in gang zone wars. Suggested by Akira in https://sf-se.net/forum/threads/no-more-jetpacks-in-gangwars.625/
* Fixed the 'player is in safe zone' and 'player has /godmode enabled' game text message behaving incorrectly sometimes.
* Fixed chance of spectators not having their object streaming preference restored after spectating.
* Fixed players needing 50hrs of onlinetime to spawn a taxi.
* Possibly fixed the 'shooter boost bug' which sometimes occurred for people. Please let me know.
