My questions
Will the current functions for Pawn be fixed
Will there be more functions for pawn (SetTimerEx, DCMD support etc)
Will there be plugins for pawn (MySQL, sscanf etc)
Will there be actual rcon commands like in samp

That's all my questions for now

Here's my modest little list, of things I think most of us would like to see / be fixed.

---BUGS---

Player crashes and experiences weird bugs when his health is being setted while he is in a car.
Player sometime crashes when uses all of the ammo in a setted gun.
Player behaves weirdly when using classic controls. For example: Shooting north, bullets hit player that is standing east.
Players that aim with a sniper cannot be harmed from far range with most weapons like M60.
Players that aim with a sniper get zoomed out when someone joins the server.
Player that aim with a sniper can sometimes get a random shaking effect that can repeat it self multiple times in a row.
When spawning to a corpse of a dead car, it goes on fire again.

[EDIT]

If a vehicle is seted to re spawn and a player is teleported to it before it does, the vehicle becomes immortal.
If a vehicle is teleported & burned between a wall and a player is teleported to it after it re spawns the vehicle becomes immortal.
The clothes pickup causes powerful lag for the player near it and eventually crash.
Setting player skins multiple times to multiple players can sometimes cause weird anomalies. Player can't die, can't enter cars, can't see him self shooting and sometimes disappears at all from the sight of all other players.
Setting player skins to invalid ids crashes all the players inside the server.
When calling multiple animations one after another they begin mix up. Selling anim starts switching into turning around, ect.
When having two colored types of announcements on the same screen the center announcement turns into pink.
Vehicles cannot be locked completely anymore so even the passenger couldn't exit. Yes I'm talking about status 4.
Setting player team to an id that doesn't exist causes complete chaos in the chat box. Messages repeat them self in many different colors. 
Voodoo crashes! (as always).
At some point the server doesn't allow you add more different types of vehicles.
Vehicles cannot be locked if they haven't been ever entered.

That pretty much exceeds all of my knowledge about the current version's bugs. Some of them are pretty small and don't really mean much, but at least I pointed them out. Some of they may have been already fixed in the beta version, but at least I checked Tongue

---IMPROVEMENTS---

SetPlayerSkin Should be synched to server instead of online players.
SetPlayerTeam Should be synched to server, visible to everyone.
SetPlayerHealth & SetPlayerArmour should go higher than 100 (immortality included).
SetVehicleHealth should go higher than 100 (immortality included).
Players shouldn't be able to pass the enter car detection with some bizarre "keep holding enter key" mambo jumbo.

---SUGGESTIONS---

An optional ammu nation.  
An option to change vehicle colors.
An option to spawn and remove markers visible to a specific person.
An option to remove markers visible to everyone and synched to the server.
An option to  spawn and remove "auroras" that are synched to the server.
An option to detect when someone touches an aurora.
An option to spawn a "soundless" pickups. This has been done to the save pickup in R2. So why not make an option for it?  
An option to SetAlarm that would work when none is in a vehicle and could maybe only be heard to local players.
A function that would inform the clients to start a classic Vice City countdown. Which I believe would be much more precise than doing it with a script.
Weapon ammo detection.
Far more animations.  

---CRAZIER STUFF---

An option to enable/disable ammu nation.  
An option to spawn objects that are synched to the server.
An option to disable players from going to the spawn screen when dieing and instead teleporting to a certain cord.
An option to enable walk mode which is basically a walking animation called instead of running.
An option to generate all kinds of explosions and flames.
An option to spawn interactive props, like movable boxes and exploding barrels.  
An option to set the auroras wideness.
An option to text draw in the game using Vice City font.

Player crashes and experiences weird bugs when his health is being setted while he is in a car.
Haven't been able to reproduce in beta.
Player sometime crashes when uses all of the ammo in a setted gun.
Did occur in earlier version, but I am not completely sure if this is fixed.
Player behaves weirdly when using classic controls. For example: Shooting north, bullets hit player that is standing east.
Will disable classic controls.
Players that aim with a sniper cannot be harmed from far range with most weapons like M60.
Mostly fixed. Remote player aim might not be accurate when the local player zooms though. Will work on that.
Players that aim with a sniper get zoomed out when someone joins the server.
Fixed. Check the thread.
Player that aim with a sniper can sometimes get a random shaking effect that can repeat it self multiple times in a row.
First time I hear this and I've never seen it.
When spawning to a corpse of a dead car, it goes on fire again.
Haven't checked this out. Not really critical though I guess.
If a vehicle is seted to re spawn and a player is teleported to it before it does, the vehicle becomes immortal.
You mean when it respawns because it blew up? Haven't noticed this.
If a vehicle is teleported & burned between a wall and a player is teleported to it after it re spawns the vehicle becomes immortal.
Between a wall? I don't understand what you mean because the location really isn't relevant.
The clothes pickup causes powerful lag for the player near it and eventually crash.
Haven't tried this, but I am planning to change the pickup system so that things like this wouldn't even be possible.
Setting player skins multiple times to multiple players can sometimes cause weird anomalies. Player can't die, can't enter cars, can't see him self shooting and sometimes disappears at all from the sight of all other players.
Haven't noticed any bugs with skins at all in the current beta.
Setting player skins to invalid ids crashes all the players inside the server.
Fixed.
When calling multiple animations one after another they begin mix up. Selling anim starts switching into turning around, ect.
That seems to be the default behaviour of the animation system. I am not really sure this needs changing.
When having two colored types of announcements on the same screen the center announcement turns into pink.
Any bugs related to the old chatbox are irrelevant.
Vehicles cannot be locked completely anymore so even the passenger couldn't exit. Yes I'm talking about status 4.
I have never really understood why anyone would want to lock someone INSIDE a vehicle.
Setting player team to an id that doesn't exist causes complete chaos in the chat box. Messages repeat them self in many different colors.
Haven't tested this in new chatbox.
Voodoo crashes! (as always).
Voodoo hydraulics are disabled now.
At some point the server doesn't allow you add more different types of vehicles.
It wasn't the server that stopped it, it was the game engine. This limit has been raised now.
Vehicles cannot be locked if they haven't been ever entered.
Locking system is now interactive (OnPlayerRequestEnter).
SetPlayerSkin Should be synched to server instead of online players.
Done already.
SetPlayerTeam Should be synched to server, visible to everyone.
Done already.
SetPlayerHealth & SetPlayerArmour should go higher than 100 (immortality included).
Not implemented (yet). For immortality I might make different functions (set immunities).
SetVehicleHealth should go higher than 100 (immortality included).
Same as previous.
Players shouldn't be able to pass the enter car detection with some bizarre "keep holding enter key" mambo jumbo.
Vehicle entry is now completely controlled by the server and there shouldn't be any way to bypass it.
An optional ammu nation.
Can be done with already available scripting functions.
An option to change vehicle colors.
Will do.
An option to spawn and remove markers visible to a specific person.
Maybe will implement, not sure yet.
An option to remove markers visible to everyone and synched to the server.
Already possible, although I'm not sure if synced properly.
An option to  spawn and remove "auroras" that are synched to the server.
An option to detect when someone touches an aurora.
Maybe. Not sure yet. Depends on how many other things I have to do.
An option to spawn a "soundless" pickups. This has been done to the save pickup in R2. So why not make an option for it?
No sound when picking up? Either way, with the new pickup system the server would have to manually play the sounds anyway.
An option to SetAlarm that would work when none is in a vehicle and could maybe only be heard to local players.
I don't understand what you mean by "could only be heard to local players".
A function that would inform the clients to start a classic Vice City countdown. Which I believe would be much more precise than doing it with a script.
Not sure if this will be implemented.
Weapon ammo detection.
Will be done.
Far more animations.
If I don't have anything better to do.
An option to enable/disable ammu nation.
Scripts are for that. There will be no hardcoded Ammu-Nation.
An option to spawn objects that are synched to the server.
Already implemented.
An option to disable players from going to the spawn screen when dieing and instead teleporting to a certain cord.
Can be implemented by scripts by forcing spawn immediately.
An option to enable walk mode which is basically a walking animation called instead of running.
You mean make the player "tired"?
An option to generate all kinds of explosions and flames.
Explosions done, flames not.
An option to spawn interactive props, like movable boxes and exploding barrels.
Would need sync also, probably not going to implement (yet).
An option to set the auroras wideness.
If they will be added, might do that too.
An option to text draw in the game using Vice City font.
Not sure if I will implement this. Depends on other things.

@max: try to set the hp to lower when in car. I have tried to make a realistic mod, which decease the hp, when car is damaged. It didn't worked properly just because sometimes after setting new hp, my actor was teleported outside the car, but was still controlling it (?).

I think that's because of desync since R2, was not present in R1. See my vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mqOH09Qqfxo

VC doesn't have a countdown, it is a simple script that uses draw text stuff + play sound.

I have never really understood why anyone would want to lock someone INSIDE a vehicle.
In RPG, you might want to lock someone in your car to kidnap them.

Or make them walk by default while holding the alt key and moving forward, like in SA:MP.

Correct me if I am wrong, but in SA it is possible to walk without any modifications (robbery missions?).

Shouldn't the "bugged" bug be top priority here?
When someone is bugged and can't shoot, the player just floats around...

Than you  for the awesome response Max, I really appreciate it Grin
I'm going to to clear up a few things though.

Quote
I don't understand what you mean by "could only be heard to local players".
As you probably noticed the alarm is heard by everyone in the server. So my suggestion is to do a radius for it. Or at least play it for selected players only so it could be scriptable.
Quote
You mean when it respawns because it blew up? Haven't noticed this.
No. If you use SetVehicleToRespawn to respawn a vehicle and you teleport in it before it respawns the vehicle becomes immortal. It also respawns immediately if you exit it.
Quote
Between a wall? I don't understand what you mean because the location really isn't relevant.
Excuse me for my lack of clearness. What I actually meant was that if a vehicle is burned and teleported to a location where it keeps scratching it self and gets a player immediately teleported in it after it spawns, it becomes immortal. I'm not really sure if it still works in R2 tho. But it sure worked in R1.
Quote
First time I hear this and I've never seen it.
You should do a bit of snipping sometime in a really crowded server like XE. You will eventually get this issue.
Quote
Any bugs related to the old chatbox are irrelevant.
I was actually talking about announcements. You know, big letter messages that can be scripted to appear almost anywhere in your screen.
Quote
Haven't noticed any bugs with skins at all in the current beta.
It seems that I am the only one that experienced this, probably because my server is the only one that uses the set skin function so much. Hopefully it's fixed Smiley

I have a feeling that the 0.4 version is going to be sweet!

Sometimes the sniper got bugged and it plays the punch anim! That's why the camera shakes.
