It's an internal joke, like I learned russian by playing samp

(you can't learn russian playing samp)
Then I have another suggestion - GetPlayerCodePage that would return the Windows codepage the client uses (like 1252 etc.) so you can check what character set it is and perhaps do player-specific conversions.

No, the reason is someone made repack of GTA SA with SA-MP 0.3e and published it on one of the most popular russian torrent tracker. ATM this torrent has about 3000 seeders and 200 peers. I can provide link but I'm not sure it's legal
People just download it and they don't care is it the last version of multiplayer or not

How about removing the limit of created textdraws and playertextdraws (instead just keeping the limits of "shown" textdraws) ?
Also, I would really like a system where we could use {colors} in textdraws.

i have one question for version naming.

Why samp is 0.3.9?

#define GAME_VERSION_MAJOR (0)
#define GAME_VERSION_NINOR (3)
#define GAME_VERSION_PATCH (9)

is it all because of the patched client/server versioning!!!

I don't think plan of creating 0.3.9 and uniting everyone under it will work, what you got as a change ? Maybe one or two minor things, not big like custom skins and stuff I don't think it matters to have 0.3.9 if there will be just few minor updates.

I'd like to see Custom Models&Skins being in 0.3.9, if people don't want to play with custom skins they can join other servers which don't use them. I'd like to see custom weapons, custom cars and stuff.
Yeah..
For me, the best version is DL.

Well, samp is a pretty old mod. There's a struggle between finding a new path forward with custom content and keeping it as it was during its prime.

There are plenty of online games I wish never changed, so I could go back and play them as they were. Some people left TF2 after hats and crafting were added.

But that depends on how servers would use the custom content. It might not neccessarily change the SA-MP as whole, but simply enhance it a bit. I can tell that players were eager for that controllable yacht or even for that beta skin of LVPD bike patrol officer, which I recently introduced on my servers. These are simply features that make the game enjoyable no matter how old it is. Because even new games can't bring so much of features or possibilities that SA-MP has.

I'll just take your word for it.

The servers will do it, if for no other reason than to compete with other servers. Then players won't really have a choice.

But players mostly want the DL feature too. What about reducing the amount of objects and skins server can use for download? Let's say 100 skins and 100 object models? Or limit it by overall size (10 MB?). I recognize you are unsure whether downloading wouldn't annoy players, but if downloading would take less than minute, I guess players wouldn't have any reason to dislike it.

If HTTP download could be somehow set by default in the server package (or enabled HTTP downloads only), I assume downloading 10 MB of models and skins would take even less than 15 seconds for most players.
