  1. To start, I've re-read any thread gang related that exist here in badlands. After reading all of them, I wanted to bring one of them back to life, but figured its a new time, new group of people around, and more importantly, the city is constantly changing and growing. I personally, someone whom mains cop, want more gang activities, features, and QoL for gangs. So here's another thread.-= I joined Badlands to interact with Criminals and Gangs. Whether its verbal, bantering (<3 Panda Gang), or honestly a great shoot out / ambush setup by them. For me, the intensity of some scenes is where I really enjoy my Cop RP. Whether I'm in a shitty situation outnumbered, or chasing down a crew. I don't care what that situation is, I don't even care if it pisses me off, because as long as there's interaction or non cheesy engagement, I fucking love it. However, I feel the features & forced grinding of the current criminal organizations really puts them down because the time and energy they have to put into that, to only have ONE bad night to lose it all. The usual comments come from this, "They should have been smarter", "They should have done something more creative" or it stems down to PD winning a scene and it changes "PD is OP" "Things need to change on PD side" or "PD Ruined our RP we planned". I personally don't think the struggles of being a criminal; is to blame on PD side, I personally think its the lack of features gangs have. Sure they have there hideouts, and there own personal customized whatever it may be, but from what I've gathered, they have grinded to get everything. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- First Suggestion - Gangs don't just need a hide out, but they need a "block" or "area" that's there's. An essential location where they can be feared the most. Not a safe zone, but at least an area where there numbers can be there numbers. They put the work in, but the restriction of having a group larger than 5 baffles me. Okay, Gang Member A, you can represent today, but Gang Member B, you can't because us 5 are representing today. Police have Mission Row, you go to Mission Row, everyone in PD comes, it doesn't matter if your one criminal, two, or a group of 5. Police can show up in the numbers of 20 to defend its HQ. Each individual ACTIVE gang need a HQ where they have the same freedom to defend in numbers as well and allowing anyone at there HQ in the gang to be allowed to REPRESENT. So short version, Gangs need an HQ with a defined land zone to determine where there numbers can be whatever, just like at Mission Row. The HQ can be raided but NEVER shut down. Its also a place they will own and be able to return to. Yeah it can be raided, but again not shut down. Second Suggestion - Land Grabs. So the suggestions in the past was in regards to being able to claim lands essentially like how you could originally in Grand Theft Auto San Andres. I'm not recommending that, what I'm recommending is "X" amount of locations that grant gangs, especially active gangs benefit for HOLDING locations. To protect scum cheesy take overs when gangs are offline, the gangs would have to be online, and they don't receive the benefit unless X amount are actually defending it, which would allow other gangs to initiate a potential takeover. These lands or whatever they may come would support the 5 Player rule. To balance, Police can never raid or attempt a shut down of this location with more than 5 to match the potential threat at these locations defending. Police Raids won' take place daily and without releasing the exact time / amount wouldn't be able to hit for "X" amount of time. Makes sense when I say it to myself here, but wouldn't even know where to start coding wise, or whatever. Can label them whatever you want. Third Suggestion - Cost of Gear & Weapons. Granted, I'm aware OOC how these have to be done, without going into detail, the price of them that's been strong armed is a bit much that's being laid out. Based on the actual income of illegal activities, as a server, clearly a player run economy on these items is a problem. Now I could be wrong, but based on what's been mentioned before it cost over 60,000 for a criminal to be fully geared and I'm pretty sure my number is low compared to the actual number. This should be addressed to either come up with another solution for weapons and armor to be drastically lowered in the player run economy of these items, or another means of getting this is possible. Fourth Suggestion - The gang rule that another gang cannot break out another gang. Personally would like to see this rule tossed out. There's a couple of reasons why. (1) It doesn't necessarily mean that gang is personally breaking out that gang for there freedom, but in fact it could be to get them out so they could secure them for there own means, whether its payback, ransom to that said gang, or whatever. (2) Why is there a restriction on gangs breaking out other gangs? The argument that Gang A is always beefing with Gang B shouldn't prevent the need to wanting to break out Gang B. "It doesn't make sense". How does it not make sense? Gang A and Gang B both hate law enforcement. Law Enforcement prevents Gang A from conducting business with Gang B because Gang B will be locked up for "X" amount of time. (Granted that eventually time will increase with no cap one day). That last statement I hope will prevent , "We'll they will be out in 30 minutes, so they can then" lol. Just saying, think it should be allowed. Final Suggestion for now - Illegal Medical, Player Run only, not NPC. That way if said Illegal Medical isn't available at the time it would create the balance of being forced to have to go to the hospital. However, I think with popularity, criminals will gang the ability to potentially NOT having to use a legal means to get medical treatment. I personally feel there shouldn't be any said location on the map that can be immediately located by Police. However these MULTIPLE locations, would , just like Drug Locations would remain hidden from Police until a criminal discloses and a potential raid takes place so long evidence is properly gathered that deems a warrant. There's a few options for this. There for sure is a lot more smarter people in regards to this subject that could provide a better light on it. Still think it needs to happen. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- My brain is constantly spinning with the need of activities for criminals. I get there is a ton of work that needs to get done on the back end for this stuff. I just want there to be more options which lead to more potential arrests lol or engagements in general. Some criminal activities, yes I'm aware some of these will generate an increased amount of gun play. Grand Theft Auto - Having to steal specific cars, more mini games involved with stealing those specific cars, rather than stealing random cars. Vehicles would be specifically targeted. GPS gets activated, having to have to disable these. Require a two person job rather than a single person job. I'm aware this idea exist elsewhere, but its a great idea and looks fun as hell. Armored Car - Details really are not needed, but yeah. There's options, could be a stationary target that requires multiple things to happen to get to the vehicle. Breaking into a door, gate, etc. Explosions, etc. or a mobile one, which I'm sure would require a lot more work coding wise. Large Drug Deals - Rather than minor drug sales to locals, there would be a location presented after (X) amount of drugs have been accumulated. Criminals would contact there source to make the deal. (Kinda like how they order leaves). These locations can and will change, however NOT ever single time, but a percentage or random time that police can be notified, or MAYBE at the same time of the request of the deal, which these locations won't be immediately presented to the criminal , the police receive a notification, and would have to complete a series of mini games in order to gain the intel of that location. Both options would help with balancing. Weapon Deals - Same way as above. Store Robberies - Instead of the good ol "Safe Cracking Tool" please change the name of this lol. But yeah, umm small stores need a good SMASH and grab. Obviously wouldn't be a means of income, at least if used in a simple manner. There's possibilities to make money from doing these if the mind allows for the success of it. For instance, MAYBE instead of hitting the safe, which more small stores don't actually have large safes like these, but instead break the registers open, add NPC's to the register like the base game of GTA, to some of the stores, not all. As we know some like to RP owning a store which is awesome. Cash Registers, "Stolen Goods" "Stolen Lottery Tickets" "Stolen Carton of Cigarettes" , etc etc. These stolen products could be resold at RP driven stores, or sold in bulk to a market. (Using Weapon/Drug deals as examples). These would be QUICKER grabs, as in the need for hostages would be ridiculous. More of an intense grab. Potential for cops to respond, or potential for them not to get there at all. This could also work for Liquor stores too. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- That's all I got for now. Brain is getting fried and I feel like I'm rambling more than anything and honestly I personally feel ALOT of people have some great ideas that could support the need of increased server supported features, NOT just RP driven features. RP features are great, I get it, but honestly both can exist. There's a lot of good criminal RPer's that go unnoticed. Argument will say otherwise, but some do there best to provide. I didn't re-read any of this, so I am sorry for any spelling errors or down right shit that don't make any sense.

  2. So I think an unconscious state would be a cool feature to have. It would make fight night events, or just a little boxing match a lot less time consuming because of the fact of EMS needing to pick them up or be transported to a hospital. Basically after getting knocked unconscious you have to wait a brief amount of time before you are able to stand back up again, that state could only be caused by punches and any bullets/melee weapons would always cause the dead/downed effect. I don't really feel like this would take away from EMS, if people still wanted to RP out their injuries caused by the fist fight further they can still request for EMS,

  3. You’ve seen it before in action movies- the chemical used to knock people out—Chloroform. The idea is that chloroform could be used on someone to knock them “unconcious” (they can’t see or hear) for about a minute. The user would have to successfully complete a mini game to successfully knock out their target with Chloroform. To prevent Chloroform from being abused, there should be a cool down timer after every time someone successfully knocks someone out with Chloroform. Another way we might be able to prevent chloroform from being overpowered is by having the victim do a perception check (kind of like what you do in dead by daylight while fixing generators) where they have to react and press a button at the right time to avoid being successfully knocked out by it. I feel like adding chloroform could bring in more unique ways to spice up roleplay, such as used in kidnappings, or maybe the FBI will use chloroform to knock someone out and take them in for questioning. overall, I’d love to hear some feedback on the idea!

  4. As someone who works actively at a restaurant and has for months, I feel like removing our "pantry" to purchase our smaller ingredients and moving them to a grocery store such as Willie's in Paleto would be a good addition to restaurant RP. This would require there to be attention to supply levels beyond just meat, and with our larger size business storage is actually possible now. Items from the 24/7 that would make more sense at a grocery store (drink packs/taco kits) could also be moved here. I do understand that due to Paleto being gang territory that Willie's may in theory not be the best, however it does have the best store front. I also feel we need more things brought up to the county, so if there's any way to revert Wonderama Arcade in Grapeseed to the Supermarket, that would also be pretty cool. Even better: Either have the purchase circles on different aisles based on categories of items, or if shelves have visible items use third eye. Note: I don't think it should be a player owned/run thing just because it would be a snoozefest.

  5. Let me put it this way in the hopes it is more understandable- Restaurant A limits food, focuses on roleplay and the experience but gets limited customers because the majority of citizens don't need their service. Restaurant B is selling in bulk to many customers who hoarde it in cars, giving limited roleplay surrounding the exchange, making a ton of money, and doesn't need to see the same customer frequently at all because both the vendor and customer are maximizing-minimizing their video game needs over roleplay. While we would love to have an item spoilage system that reduces Restaurant B type behaviour, it is not an immediately viable system for dev but is something they hope to accomplish in the long term. In the meantime, we need players to understand that there are OTHER legal restaurant workers who also wish to make more money and more importantly, have more frequent roleplay interactions, but are not getting that because of the actions of restaurants behaving like a Costco wholesale factory.

  6. In the recent few months there have been major reductions in how much money a legal person can make. And I understand that there needs to be a balance with how much crime pays out vs how much legal jobs pay out. But now it is being pushed that restaurants are only aloud to sell a certain amount of food. So we don't make as much money. That's fine but I want the admins to take some responsibility for there decision and tell all the customers. They are literally pushing everyone to go criminal. As restaurant owners, we want restaurants to be about RP, not just cash grabs. It has been a problem for some time that multiple restaurants struggle because players have been stockpiling the meta food that is of the best quality. Moving forward, it's requested that you minimize the amount you allow people to purchase, to give the opportunity to push people to other places of business and have repeat customers more frequently. We suggest you keep your food items sold to a reasonable amount a person could get "full" off of. Example: Sandwiches and Water Bottles from 24/7; 5 each would be a good amount. Please share this with ALL of your employees. Please react to this message when you see it and have told employees.

  7. I agree, but this isn't an option for everyone. Some people don't have the budget and have to work with what they have. I agree it's annoying, especially as a cop when someone barks at me over the radio, but sometimes you just have to pretend you don't hear certain stuff.

  8. Before reading this, keep in mind that I only have a basic understanding of the economy and that this is all personal opinion. Being legal at this moment feels like an impossible task financially. There seems to be only two routes that you can take to make any substantial amounts of cash, and that's EMS and PD. I do not mean that PD and EMS do not deserve the money that they get, the pay for both of those jobs is well deserved. What I am referring to is the jobs that everyone in the city can do. Car dealerships already have employee's, Real Estate and DOJ only hire so many, and restaurants are packed to the brim with employee's. Basic jobs like, Trucking, Delivery, and Go Postal, the pay is not worth the amount of time and effort you have to put into it anymore after these "nerfs" of pay. (ESPECIALLY TRUCKING) I agreed that deliveries needed to be tuned down a little bit because it could get silly with the profits. Tweaks were necessary in some cases but I personally believe that job pay was tweaked way too hard. It feels to me like Hunting is the only option to make any REAL money legally at this point in time without a whitelisted job which are limited to say the least. Hunting in my opinion should also be a sport/hobby that you do in your free time, not a main source of income. Having to hunt to grind out that car that you really want in the least tedious method possible is an RP nightmare. Having a single "basic" job that makes way more money than the rest leaves a really bad taste in your mouth; just like the delivery job did before it was nuked. The reason I think it needs better balance is because of the rest of the economy, price of cars, housing, food, etc... A perfect example for this is a trucking run I did last night. I have an un-upgraded hauler, which is the cheapest semi at about 35k, with a trailer it does about an average of 50mph (being very generous) on the highway in a straight line. My trailer drop was 6 miles away, I was hauling a gas tank. For that 6 mile haul, it ended up taking me about 10-15 minutes due to different variables. When I dropped my trailer I received $2,464. I returned back to my garage to place my vehicle which took approximately 5 minutes. In 20 minutes I made $2,464. A 10-10 at burgershot costs roughly 7k-8k. By that math its going to take me roughly an hour to get myself food for the day. Now I know someone is going to say, "WeLl TrUcK dRiVeRs DoNt DrIvE sUpEr CaRs 4head". Truck drivers also typically aren't homeless and hungry either. The other jobs in the city could use work in my personal opinion too with a slight pay raise or alternatively dropping the price of other things in the economy instead (housing, cars, and food), I focused my attention to truck driving particularly because I believe it needs the most attention. To conclude my rant here, I welcome opinions and my mind is always willing to be changed. I just wanted to see how the community felt about this also.

  9. Please fix the bug where crouching resets your walk style to normal. Especially when as EMT I crouch almost 100% of the time I exit my ambulance in order to serve downed people. My walk style, I feel, is so much a part of my character. It gets extremely tiring having to continually set my walk style over and over all day every day. Please fix this! Can we maybe even make our walk style persistent?

  10. @ZaxxYs The energy level is really not constructive. To give you an example of a recent court case, a citizen wanted to get their seized vehicle back and argued as to the vagueness of the law surrounding car seizures. Because of that case, the law was changed to be more explicit as he had asked, and got his car back. So you can say taking it to court doesn't do shit, but maybe instead, it's actually that you are not keeping up or in the know. In terms of the pc law regarding offroading, I believe the wording could be a little more clear to reference that there is PC when you commit the act of offroading as defined in the ticketing aid. It's defined as 5 meters, so your example of 2 is wrong, and it is easy to take a picture and use that as evidence, not only of asking for the law to be changed but your charge to be appealed. As to the original post. I can agree that offroading alone should not grant probable cause. Our police departments train to exercise best judgment. So one would not charge or search people having fun with their dirtbikes for offroading unless there are other factors involved, like 911 calls coming in. Im sure most everyone has been pulled over for doing 20 mph over the limit but have not been searched even though police could by rights do so. This is an example of police using their discretion and reserving their right when it makes sense to do so. If you feel like a cop is going overboard, senior pd wants to know about it. Feel free to submit IAs and include video if you have it.

If anyone wants a custom colour done, either respond to this topic or send me a dm on Discord (Lion Luke.#9514). Here some of my work I have done already, feel free to download and use anywhere (related to Badlands)

  13. -1 to this. My main character Roger is a counselor, yogi, rub down specialist, podcaster, etc etc. I do all of that and still have only recently been able to afford a nice car and a place to live and I've been on this server for awhile. I only am able to dedicate a few hours during my play sessions and sometimes....people just don't pay their bills. I too am to blame because I let my feelings of friendship and love make charging people outright difficult. Roger's big ole heart gets in the way. That being said, it is still a grind even with the 125 dollar supplement. I'm not buying cars or houses with that govt assistance check. I'm buying food and paying medical bills. It's all about time, sure if you can be on for long periods of time, then you are getting compensated for your awake time. Just as those who don't have quite as long to dedicate. A part of my journey has been showing others that you don't need to join PD, EMS, or gangs to make money. You don't even need to clock into scripted jobs to make money. Sometimes apart of the fun is figuring out what your path is. The 125 paycheck is there to help you not be forced into one or the other. Namaste, y'all

  14. I think it would be unique to make more hobbies available to rp in the server, one of them being cooking. Basically, the idea was that you could use an oven (purchased at the furniture store) to cook certain foods. The foods would be cooked with ingredients gathered by different jobs throughout the city. (Ex: sliced white fish from fishing, eggs from the market, veggies grown like jute is, deer meat from hunting, etc.) This could add the option to rp that you have the hobby of cooking. You could also take that experience of cooking and use it to help you get a job at a restaurant in a city. Some might argue that this would negatively impact the restaurants in the city, however, I disagree for a few reasons. 1. not everyone is willing to do multiple jobs around the city just to cook a meal when they could save time and just buy a ready-cooked meal from one of the restaurants 2. You wouldn’t be able to cook any dish that can be made in a restaurant, so you’d still have to buy those dishes from the restaurants 3. Restaurants have an easier way to get their ingredients. I feel like this idea is a cute way to incorporate a cooking hobby. The cute girl next door might make cupcakes for people, or maybe you just have a barbecue outside with friends. Either way, I thought the idea would be cute to incorporate.

  15. For this to work without hindering restaurants I feel a couple things would need to happen in my opinion. 1. The food would need to spoil pretty quickly faster than restaurant food. 2. It can't compare at all to filling hunger like restaurant food otherwise people will ult find a way to cheese it and just make this stuff at home. Killing the restaurants purpose. It should be more for RP than it should about filling your hunger.

  16. Can tell you some of these are already being done with gangs, with some groups just gonna go through each suggestion from top down. 1: turf is 100% needed a area to call your stomping grounds for any and all groups is important allows people to come and interact with you so onboard with you, but I also don't want to deny cops rp if they have hard investigation rp to prove that a place is being used for illegal activities. 2: Landgrabs is a idea im not really fond of I have seen them in other servers and it turns into hide in a corner until you have influence its unrewarding and does come off as demoralizing, plus as described earlier it would bring alot more gang wars over something scripted rather then organic from in character beef. 3: I hate the grind but i enjoy interacting with people who rely on grinding materials to make income. 4: I know the feeling where it can come off as it forces you into a position where you cant help your mates from another gang, but that rule is in place because some gangs were using other groups to fight their wars and settle the beef they started, the intent of that rule is to avoid making a convoluted mess for gang task force for the police to figure out who is fighting who for investigation rp. Now onto the illegal activity/jobs Grand Theft Auto: Big fan of this something other then the current grind of steal specific car chop specific car is fun gives cops a specific bolo for a unique car and some need for speed style chases. Armored Car: Ive seen armored cars in other servers I can tell you its a dumpsterfire id avoid this like the plague just turns into TDM. Large Drug/Weapon Deals: Done some of these with mysterious characters in game and its fun roleplay, not sure how I would feel if its automated/scripted but im always for creating more roleplay for cops I just don't want it to be a one sided money grind sort of thing. Store Robberies: You can technically do smash and grabs with some stores but I like interacting with police, if your suggestion is somthing along the lines of just robbing cash out of the register that would be abused and block people from doing normal 7/11 store robberies so this im not really a fan of.

  18. First off, there are vehicles specifically designed to be driven off-road. Am I to assume that any time I use one of these "off-road" designed vehicles for it's intended use I am subject to probable cause search and seizure? Secondly, am I to assume that any time any wheel, in the case of any standard wheeled vehicle, or track, in the case of any standard tracked vehicle, touches anything other than concrete, pavement, or specifically created roads of other material designed specifically for vehicle travel, I am subject to probable cause search and seizure? This law of probable cause for search and seizure lacks the proper definition and description enough to warrant use that would not and could not violate the rights of the citizens of Los Santos and it's contained and neighboring towns, cities, and boroughs. I believe this is in violation of our Fourth Amendment rights as described in the Constitution of The United States of America, where, in fact, Los Santos and it's contained and neighboring towns, cities, and boroughs reside. If it is in fact the position of the government that such a law be in place to protect law enforcement from being evaded during situations where a crime has already been suspected of being committed and a pursuit has ensued that has caused such suspect(s) to flee onto "off-road" terrain in order to gain an unfair advantage over pursuing law enforcement, it should be the pursuant suspected crime that warrants probable cause search and seizure and not that of said vehicle traversing off-road. Further more, if it is in fact the position of the government that those vehicles not considered "off-road" in design and use that are used on "off-road" terrain for the purpose of hunting, legally or illegally, are to be considered under the law for probable cause search and seizure, then this should be stated clearly and concisely in the law, with condition that proof of the act of hunting be a requirement for such action.

  19. I'm all for more jail time, on a crim stand point there needs to be changes to prison though. I would like to see automated jobs that reduce jail time little by little just to give you some way to reduce the jail time. When we get to the point of having big jail times then I feel like you should be able to serve your full sentence offline/ on a another character, or maybe just 80% of your sentence. DOC is cool when they are around but there needs to be something in place that can help off set the huge amount of time. If not then it'll get to a point each day that we as PD will have nothing to do because every crim will be setting in Bolingbroke AFK for 2+ hours.

  21. Obviously this isn't that big of a deal really just something that would be nice. Would be cool if the inventory UI, trunk UI, and glovebox UI got a little love. Obviously what we have now works and that's good, just think a different UI for all of those would be refreshing. Also the health, armor, food, and drink bars getting changed from the vanilla lookin GTA V bars would be pretty cool as well. Like I said what we have now works perfectly fine, however a change would be really cool to see eventually.

  22. Pretty simple, imo melee weapons are to strong for the fact of the lock-on mechanic. It used to get abused quite a bit by a LOT of people not as much anymore, however there are still some that do abuse it. Think it would be great to remove the lock-on because people do a lot of cheesy stuff with melee.

  25. I just want to post a quick message to say 2 things: 1- Yes, legal jobs need to be looked at and rebalanced because of all of the reasons that you guys have mentioned before, its an issue and even tho the players should come to an RP server to RP I also believe that people should be allowed to play and RP HOWEVER they want, you cant force them to play the game and enjoy their time the way YOU want them to, so if they want to grind for a car, awesome, if they wanna RP as a crazy person, awesome, if they wanna sit at the same place waiting for people to talk to, awesome. 2- I love Razec and Levi for bringing out the fact that the jobs we are referring to should and are beginner jobs, jobs that will teach you the roots of the server and how stuff works, they shouldn't be looked at as a main form of income or as the only thing to do. Like Razec said, the best money comes out of player to player interactions, I can not remember the last time I did ANY of these jobs or ANY illegal robbery and I have millions in my character's bank account, all of that money came out of player to player interactions and businesses, now you will never be able to do this if all your focus and attention is on driving around delivering sandwiches for 3 out of the 4 hours that you play in the server. So we need to look at both sides of the coin "Do we need the legal jobs to be looked at?" ABSOLUTELY, "Are they or should they be the only way to make money or the best way to make money?" ABSOLUTELY NOT. Much love to you all.

  26. From a personal perspective and not speaking behalf of staff when I say this, I think the queue system right now is fine. I think adding priority to whitelisted players would make it so newer players are waiting in long queues at peak times and even long time players who aren't whitelisted will be sat in queues which is not fair at all. Having everyone on the same playing field is honestly the best way to be in my opinion.

  29. Illuminati Confirmed. -My opinion is that all the jobs from the job center need a full rebalance. Taxi, tow truck, mechanic & semi delivery, should get more $ hourly. Deliveries could use some TLC after that slap down. After all, you gotta spend $ to make $ this way... & I feel like I'm forgetting something... (EDIT: GOPOSTAL cause I haven't done it at all..) -Hunting CAN be more than just a financial hobby; for some people living in Sandy Shores, Paleto, or even the homeless camp on the side of the freeway, I'm sure it could be a full time source of income. -It's not good when someone new to the city comes in and asks "what's the best way to make money to get started out?" Then what you hear is "Go hunting" or "Go do deliveries because all the other jobs aren't worth it." -They're always watching.

  30. Not a fan of suggestion 4 and here is why. Group A is friends with group B so group B tries to break them out of the prison transport. Group B tells their friends group C that they are doing this for group A. Group B fails. PD take them to hospital where group C sees their friends in group B so they attempt to free them at Pillbox where they fail. Group D who is friends with group C are hanging out at Integrity and now they want to help their friends so when PD is leaving Pillbox they attack....the cycle could be endless if this is allowed. Just saying.

  31. Drive by's are the new meta IMO. Seems to me like there isnt on foot shoot outs anymore. At least the ones I have seen from recent gang wars or crims trying to break people out of prison.

  32. I can tell you that as EMS, we have already talked about this. We talked about it being either SUPER expensive or having it to where its like a 50/50 chance you go down again. It wont take away EMS RP as long as there is a downside.

  34. I'm on the fence with this one. I agree it can immersion breaking, but there's a lot that people won't have control over. For example, I've asked my roommate not to make as much noise and have received the dirtiest looks in response, he's mindful when I'm trying to train for EMS, but sometimes it's unavoidable in a shared living space. I can understand asking for someone to lower their environment noise if they are the ones making it, but families and pets are just going to keep on being families and pets. I have the ability to be mindful of what's going on in my household, but sometimes the only resolution for that is not to play, or fly out.

  35. EVERYONE should have nvidia broadcast downloaded to take out background noises. Literally takes 2 minutes to set up and its worth it for you and everyone else. I used to always hear my fan in the background of my mic but its not an issue anymore.

  36. Personally I would welcome that store with open arms and I personally don't think people need to worry about people blocking them from using that location. It would be dick move 1000 to do such.

  37. +1 to the grocery store and the farming job! Great job idea, incentive to travel to Paleto and maybe it could even have exclusive snacks like veggie pots or granola bars you can't get anywhere else! I know Kate would LOVE to visit the farms, talk to the farmers, admire the tractors and reminisce on her days as a farmer.

  38. Our discord server has a help channel where you are able to recieve assistance more immediately. The discord is linked on the top bar, right next to "Unread Content." As for your issue, this is intentional. When you connect to the Teamspeak server while logged into the game, you will be moved into the correct channel automatically. If this doesn't work, connection can be manually attempted while in the lobby channel by going to Plugins > TokoVoip > Connect. If you do not have a Plugins dropdown at the top of your Teamspeak client, refer to this guide:

  42. This depends on the officer you're dealing with, but if I witness a vehicle that's meant for off-roading, doing so, I won't pull it over. And speaking of probable cause, I would only search said vehicle if it's for instance a semi truck in the mountains. If it doesn't make sense, then yes I will pull them over and or search. Probable cause however doesn't mean we have to search you and your vehicle, it just means we can. Again depends on the officer you're dealing with.

  43. As someone who is full time crime, here's my input: Being a Criminal is not cheap at all. Every action you do can literally make you suffer, even if its something you think is soo little. The life of crime is tricky since in order to make money or buy the stuff you want, you need to take the risks in order to do so. Those risks come with very heavy consequences if you fail, so sometimes you need that little help from the back doors. Personally, I think the system in place right now is fine, but that's just me from a criminal standpoint.

  44. +1 It would make a lot of sense for you to be able to save the whole outfit while within the store. I would also love to see clothes starting to cost money as well.

  45. Would be nice to have a little popup notification when someone transfers to your account. Just having the convenience to see a notification of the transfer and amount, rather than keep opening and closing the app to see if the transfer went through

  46. The change before last was pretty bad. I usually will do 150 and 150 in the mornings before people start popping in the city. I used to make 33-36k and hour which seemed pretty high but I was speeding around town and risking a ticket. When the change before last happened that changed to about 22-24k and hour which sucked but it was still worth doing. This last change....in my opinion just take it out of the city if that is the way its going to stay. You spend $40 dollars on water/sandwiches and get $50 per delivery. If I do 100/100 I make 2k profit. If I need 1 repair and 1 refuel I am left with 800-1k profit. This is for 45minutes to an hour depending on how you drive. Seems like a zero is missing somewhere like this is a mistake. Because 2k an hour is insane. Gopostal still feels meh I make 8-10k a run which is about 25-30minutes depending on traffic. The last time I did trucking I made 13k an hour. As far as I can tell the point to making things less grindy is to increase the opportunities for RP. The problem is, you are always going to have people who just grind. You will never beat that in an economy driven server. Hurting the people that are trying to make a living day to day in the process to stop the grinders, in my opinion is not the way to go about it. It just make me want to take my legal character and turn to crime since drugs and bank robberies are paying out fairly decent. I don't know whats been going on but the last month or so have felt really hard to make any legal money.

  47. I do agree that jobs need to pay more. Also take into account that while working these jobs things like crazy locals smashing into you, doing stupid turns. So there’s $500 every so often too for repairs, or $900 if no one is around if you wanna keep some decent speed. None of the jobs from the centre ever seemed worth it to me, mechanic was once good but now the place is flooded with people and you barely make money (this is based on my own experience recently and I’m GMT+1 time zone.) so I avoid that now. Also, your paying 7-8k for 10-10? Can you please let me serve you cause I’ll make bank. 10-10 moneyshot is $3,500 and that’ll last the average person about 10 hours in game if not longer. On a serious note though I know it’s not all about money, people say focus on the RP, but where is the RP in grinding on your own in a truck for 8 hours a day to end up with $16,000.
