  1. Hi, From my time working at the Dealership I have done several finance deals which have resulted in the car having to be repoed via the Goverment. A suggestion I have is for an app on our phone or tablet that we can have all our current ongoing fiance deals listed where they can login and make payments as they have the money etc. An addition to this would be an option that when they have not made payment within the specified timeframe we can mark said vehicle for repo where anyone who is or logs on to Tow will receive a text with a list of the current cars that are up for repo. Possibly this even alerts them if the car is retrieved from a garage and is seen in the streets etc. If a tow driver is able to tow the car back to the dealership they receive an award something like 5% of the vehicles MSRP price. We at the dealership can then have an option to store the car until the finance is paid or it is put back in our name come the end of their weeks grace period. I think this would open up a lot of RP possibilites with Dealerships possibly hiring full time repo men and other repo companies competing to get the tow etc.

  3. I was wondering if it would be possible to move the hats on characters up a few cm. As of right now, there are major clipping issue with both male and female hair sticking through hats. It's not realistic that you would need to go bald or have super short hair in order to wear a hat. Hats are a good way to express ourselves and our styles so it would be nice if we could utilize them more in game.

  4. You don't really need mechanics for this. Just an imagination. The lost was doing this for Mosleys for months awhile back, After putting the effort and time into attempting to reach out to a few dealerships about this face to face in game. One of them actually took a chance on the idea. It was pretty engaging having to legit find and hunt these people and the cars down all in RP without a mechanic aiding it. Just going by descriptions of the people and the car. We stopped doing it mostly due to the move to Paleto, But honestly the times when someone actually defaulted on their payments and we was needed to repo was very rare. That said. If mechanics were to be put into a repo system. A one major thing I would say that would help at the very least is the ability for a dealership to reclaim ownership of a vehicle if brought back. As long as a contract is wrote up and receipts of payments are all documented for legality sake. Cuz to be honest that aspect will open up more DOJ RP. But I am not a fan of a mechanic that takes away the roleplay of walking into a dealership and having a conversation and getting information on people and vehicles and then actually hunting the car down in favor of something that just makes it a notification on your phone to go to this spot and get this car and bring it back.

  8. Fishing has been in the server since I've been around and before, and it's always been a mechanic that's just kinda... there. It's never been a spectacular moneymaker, and I would bet a large sum of money the code has sat largely untouched since its first implementation. It's a great way to chill out and socialize while making a little bit of money on the side. It is, however, woefully basic and has much room for improvement. My suggestions to improve fishing are as follows: - Vary the types of fish able to be caught. I'd rather catch a small trout or a hefty whitefish instead of a generic "High Quality Fish." - Regulate fishing. Overfishing is very much an issue IRL, and if fishing licenses were introduced alongside wildlife conservation laws it would make for an interesting "semi-legal" way of making money as well as introduce a use for law enforcement's marine units. - Let us cook our fish. The server has seen a lot more food making its way into the community, especially with the BadEats app, and letting people who own houses with grills have a seafood cookout is a logical step in the right direction. These are only a few ways the forgotten fishing system could be brought to the forefront of player's minds and expand passive roleplay further, out on the sea. I'm sure our community could think of more ways that this mechanic could get put to use, and I'm eager to hear what everybody's thoughts on the matter are.

  9. Thanks for this just put out a warrant! See you in Paleto punk! Jokes aside, I think the whole evidence collection/processing could use a rework. Not only for it to make sense to criminals but to the PD as well. Maybe even procedures/standard on what/how much evidence is needed in order to place a warrant out for an individual who may have been involved.

  10. Going to leave this here and walk away XDDD. This is game breaking and needs to be looked at, it makes no sense IRL and it gives crim 0 ways to evade warrants no matter what. "The residue that leaves fingerprints is a combination of oils (from cheetos, your hair, your face… take a shower already), and sweat. The sweat/water component would be vaporized, and while the oils may stick or corrode the cases, the heat and friction will take its toll and lower the quality. Add to that the size of the object. A 9mm or a .22 cartridge isn't very big so there isnt a great surface area to pull from. The handling required to remove the cartridge from the box, load into the mag, and ejection creates a lot of friction, and touches it several times (this is getting cheeky) and so there is a good chance prints get smudged or removed. So police can and do look at them but in the grand scheme of fingerprint evidence fired cases are borderline usless. In a case review at my lab I'll find a print at least 13/100 times on the magazine vs 1/1000 on ammunition. Give me the gun and I'll find a print 7/100 times."

  11. Just posting this up since I buried it in a previous QOL improvement post. 1. There should be a way to see who is whitelisted for what under role management. Currently there is no way to know who is or isn't whitelisted for what role. Unless you manually write it down and pray you don't lose that info. 2. Being able to see what ID ordered what and when from the store menu. 3. Levels for doors. Being able to assign a level to certain doors so you can grant access to parts of business without giving it to all.

  16. Firstly, I absolutely LOVE the new BadEats app. However, there's no way for me to disable incoming orders when I am not working at the restaurant. This would only be a minor inconvenience, however when I am clocked into EMS, the notifications are coming into my dispatch. I haven't had too many issues, I just have to be very diligent to make sure my SOS calls are not buried, but it can get a little crazy on busy nights. Hopefully we can get a way to clock in and out of Burger Shot, the same way that I clock into EMS to get Dispatch messages.

  17. I actually agree with this. I’m not in PD so I don’t know much about their process, and I’ve only been arrested once on my crim, but if I had to put myself in this situation I would definitely of put a BOLO out, or tried to contact the person it was connected to so that I could ask questions. I wouldn’t of put a warrant out because who knows, technically the gun used could of been stolen after it was loaded. Ya know open up some rp options.

  18. The pay is absurdly low for truck drivers. I can drive halfway across the map with a big rig, spend tedious minutes backing into a tight drop-off location and still receive less than $1000. How is this supposed to entice players to roleplay as truck drivers? It's featured in the server title/description so I assume that the developers intended for, and wanted, people to roleplay truck drivers. I just want to cruise down the road while listening to outlaw radio, chain smoking cigarettes and making a livable wage. I'm not expecting to get rich driving a truck around the city and north county, but I do expect to make a livable wage. Truck driving is currently broken to the point that dealerships will talk you out of buying a truck so that you don't end up wasting your time and money.

  19. I’m saying there is a counter to it, you said there is literally no counter. Another counter is also not to shoot down 5 cops to breakout the 1 person that was caught. The majority of times shootouts happen, cops are shot down and no evidence is collected and nothing comes from it. Occasionally it does and we get enough to validate an arrest, that’s RP for cops, we can collect evidence, put the pieces together and execute a type of arrest we go through hours of training to understand how to execute properly. Our RP is more then just negotiating for hostages and shooting people, we put in the work to collect and process evidence, get a warrant, find said person and execute an arrest. You may not see this side of it, and this is a level of RP for beyond just getting into shootouts. Could evidence be tweaked a bit? Maybe, as with everything else in the server it will always be evolving and changing. But if you want to think realistically what is the probability of a group of robbers coming back and attacking an entire police force to break out one member of the team who was caught?

  20. I understand completely about picking up casings and have done it before. I just feel it could use a rework. Someone has gloves on vs. not. etc. would be a tough script maybe? I do like the idea of possibly needing more to get a warrant because the scenario I am speaking of they had nothing but once casing to tie to the scene. could have put a fingerprint on that testing out the gun of someone else and gave it back to them who committed the crime with the prints of both parties on it. Hit comes back on the one but doesn't mean he/she was actually on scene. You get blood, nail them. you physically see or hear them, WARRANT ISSUED! The one print pinned several charges from multiple locations to one person because the mechanic is known that "the only way fingerprints can be on this is if that one person fired it here on scene". It would be nice if some RP could be played out instead of relying on the mechanics and knowledge of how they work to nail someone on a warrant with minimal evidence. This could just be my love of the TV show CSI coming out here lol. I also get 100% what Kota said about lawyers. Its the same with EMS IMO. they are most of the time made to be a revive bot by many which is why I try hard to give them great RP especially, work up injuries, go to surgery, etc. We all need to work better on that for sure and more people would be interested in clocking on.

  21. LOL there is a reason my crim has gone 4 months without a charge. Be a smarter criminal and PICK UP YOUR CASINGS!!!! And my personal experience and conversations I have heard. Is people need to stop treating lawyers as a joke and a get out of jail free card. Even when they flat out gun people down in front of said lawyer or shoot said lawyer in the crossfire of their dumb shit. Then have the balls to be like I am gonna need you in a min. Is an example of why some lawyers I am sure are tired of clocking on. They're treated as a bot or a mechanic to strong arm the sentence in crims favor vs actually fighting legit instances of misconduct by officers or false sentencing.

  22. I would like to add that officers always have /me to take my gloves off when printing me at MRPD which means they understand you can’t get prints with gloves on. Also, how can that one bullet casing tie this person to several crimes the “crew” allegedly committed when no other evidence was found? Blood on scene, absolutely ties you to the scene but a casing? As JT saiid, it seems pointless for criminals to do jobs in disguise in an attempt to not catch a warrant if they get away. How is that possible if a print can be pulled off every casing even if the gun is not registered to you personally? I’m all for taking an L of cops take me down in a chase or shootout but when you think you got away with it and finally got a W on a job (which are all much lower payouts now) just to have the entire force pick you up because a print on a casing was on scene makes it tough to even want to commit crime. I get that cops are tying to stop crime but in GTARP you need crime for the server to work or else cops will only be giving traffic violations from here on out as crims will stop doing jobs because there is never a chance to win with all the mechanics PD have at their disposal. Again, love all the interplay between crims and PD in this server but it does seem like PD will always get the crim in the end regardless which makes it not as fun for crims IMO. stay safe everyone! See you out there! Duke Kaboom

  23. I have some thoughts around this topic and I appreciate what everyone has contributed so far. I think as police expands there will need to be changes along the lines of what's discussed here, whether it be making armor/gear for PD more expensive, making illegal class 3s less expensive or changing response numbers based on call types, however, cops have been disadvantaged for a long time, and I'm only seeing us get closer to balance so far, not further from it quite yet. I would 100% agree that its harder for crims than it was 2-3 months ago, but I think crims can put more effort into escapes and being on the run to counter that. There will be more pressure on crims, but I believe it's being done in a way that makes escape more rewarding and effort oriented in the long run. Crims should feel that pressure and be put in a position to run for their freedom if they want to maintain it. If everyone ends up working at legal business and nobody commits crime because it's not worth it, that's when nerfs to PDs or buffs to crim life need to be adjusted, but on an average day, we still have 1-2 big bank robberies, 2-4 vangelicos and 5 or more 24/7s. I hope the increase risk makes it more rewarding and challenging to get away, but I think all the cops would agree that only having 1-2 robberies a night with almost no gunfights isn't what were looking for either. I hope this will continue to be an open discussion, and I believe everyone on the crim side is reasonably correct in their assessments of how things have changed, however I trust the mods/devs to be sure everyone has a fair and challenging experience too.

  26. I'd disagree, obviously the civilians have rights so they should be read. Not only this, but mirandizing could be interesting especially when it comes to the legal side of RP. Reading them their rights is to ensure the admissibility of what they say while in custody to be used in court/lawyer interactions. Plenty of opportunity there. I get it's another thing but honestly I think it's a good suggestion.

  27. so, i know i haven't played for a long time and therefore haven't experienced all the new aspects of the city (whether legal/criminal), the server has definitely come a long way and options available that help RP/content/UI wise is better than it has ever been, but here are a few things i've come across that i think could help improve things, minimally but, further - adjust it so that putting your hands up or pulling your phone out while driving means you cannot steer your vehicle in the meantime (at all for hands up and more difficult for while you're on your phone), something small and realistic like this can help cement the notion that poor driving/attention to the road can cause accidents (opens up more instances in which someone would need to call for a tow-truck/taxi) - be able to change general cosmetic things such as hairstyles, makeup or facial hair etc at your apartment/home/hotel in front of the mirror (excluding dyeing of hair/facial hair, not because people cannot dye their own hair at home, but to prevent such immediate changes to your character's appearance and keep the salon relevant), this would also help for when you go into your apartment to change clothes quick but don't want to drive to a salon just to change your hairstyle - be able to toggle shoes on/off like other articles of clothing (useful for small things like being at the beach/pool, showing LSFD where an injury is) - a medical storage bag to reduce the time spent transferring items from inventory/vehicle and back again for when you want space after clocked off. i'm unsure if BCSO/LSPD have a similar issue, but if so, maybe a "locker" they can use that would allow an automatic transfer of all relevant items/equipment purchased for the job - (this one is likely to be suggested to factions directly but:) there should be accepted hairstyles while on duty for LSPD/LSFD/BCSO/DOC, it's a bit immersion breaking (mainly for the female hairstyles) to see hair being worn in a way that IRL would be considered unsafe/unprofessional - bank statements (being able to see a history of deposits and withdrawals from your account) i know a few of these are pushing towards more serious RP/realistic RP, but hopefully those suggestions are not seen as wanting to hinder possibility but rather to help immerse. i'd also love to hear any QoL suggestions from people who have actually been in the server for the past year! edit: did not know we could already take our shoes off! :]

  29. Hey everyone, Just wanted to bring the attention to the limited car imports we have. I love the idea of having certain cars be in stock at a limited number, bringing overall value to it. Also, the fact of having a limited car stock allows taste to come to your car, instead of have 1 million+ Itali GTOs on the street. I feel like we should continue to do this more often, and overall expand with it. Will like to have everyone's thoughts below.

  30. Hello everyone! My name is Nesbit, I flew into Los Santos about a week ago, and at first I was just going around doing some delivery things, you know working for Santos Delivery. I was then introduced to being a Mechanic a couple days ago so many of you may have seen me at the mechanic shop at Elgin and it's been a pleasure meeting a lot of you. I came from a city named Athone. I flew here to escape my criminal family and to avoid something that happened in my past that made me a wanted person at my home. Something that wasn't my fault. I studied law abroad and have plans to use my knowledge eventually. For now though I will continue to be your friendly neighborhood mechanic! Come on down and visit!

  37. It's three sentences. You can memorize the same three sentences that you hear every time you watch any sort of crime show or cop movie. It's an immersive step forward and assists the Department of Justice massively with establishing common law from existing case laws and making judgements based on that. This isn't a "cops and robbers" server where we shoot and book, shoot and book, shoot and book. Roleplay.

  39. Firstly, with the potential updates to 'Gang Rules', I agree that there are a lot of gangs that aren't following the rules in place. And one thing I will say to that is stuff like that needs to be reported to staff for anything to be done about it. Other than that, I think the gang rulings could have a an update for sure, I am just curious to see what other gangs/criminal mains would like to see changed. As far as the LSPD and BCSO thing, I disagree completely. As a server, we can't and should not limit what types of calls or areas officers go to. The word jurisdiction is thrown around a lot with BCSO coming into the picture however it simply isn't reasonable. Limiting how officers move around the map and respond to calls would honestly wreak havoc around the server. Some evenings there are constant alerts through dispatch for hours on end and having to take a moment to think whether you should be responding or not will just cause more stress for the officers. At the end of the day, LSPD and BCSO work for the state in the same capacity, while IRL they'd stick to their jurisdiction under most circumstances, it just wouldn't work well here on a RP server. Side note, if you are seeing officers/deputies responding to situations with larger amounts of force than deemed fair. You can always submit an IA on them for doing so. Officers/deputies should be matching force with the threat level. And with Miranda Rights, I'd expect something like that in the future. With the introduction of callsigns and other things into the factions, we are heading into more of an immersive LEO position. So 100% I think there should be a standard and a process when arresting someone.

  40. MODEL: Toyota MKIV Supra CATEGORY: Sports Cars PRICE TAG: $160,000 +++ FEEDBACK: The supra is a limited edition car so it's more expensive than sticker. I've spoke to several owners and all of them have mentioned that the car used to be quicker and less oversteer. I understand that the sliding is probably to make it more fun, and it is, but the speed department is lacking a lot. With the new seizure updates, no one is going to be using this for getaways because it's so expensive and the speed should be hitting 160 on a flat, no bumps road at least. Would also love it to be better in handling as @DJ Ramirezmentioned.

Businesses showing who is whitelisted for what roles under role management. Along with having a transaction log of who took what out money wise. For said business. I like the idea above of storage bags. That can be dropped with a limited amount of space in them. That you can toss on the ground or in a trunk. Vs just drop. You can pick it all up at once or just go through said bag and leave it on the ground.

  50. Server Rules Current as of January 3, 2021 Welcome to Badlands RP. We are a large FiveM role-play community with members from all regions of the globe. Our rules are structured to promote RP over rule play whenever reasonable or possible. The defined rules below function as a framework to promote a fair, fun, and balanced experience on our server. Our hope is that all community members will strive to promote role-play and enjoyment of the role-play community at all times. General Rules Role-play Our expectation is that you put thought and effort into your RP and that your interactions, behaviors, and actions are all based on RP appropriate to the given scenario. We encourage you to develop a character persona and that your interactions be based on that characters story and personality. Your character cannot and should not be a ‘master of all trades’. Players should choose jobs and activities that align with their backstory. All players must have a working and quality microphone at all times. We are an English speaking server. Please use English for all game voice and text communication. You should remain in character. If there is a problem, RP the scenario out and file a player report after without bringing it up in game New Request - BadlandsRP. Breaking RP (including /ooc) could result in corrective action. Your actions should be based on your character's persona and appropriate to the RP scenario. Use of /ooc should only be to ask a question or provide help. It’s encouraged that players learn about server mechanics in game and not through the use of /ooc. Characters must have a proper in game identity consisting of a first and last name. If you choose to have multiple characters on the server, these characters should be unique and have no relationship to each other. They are not allowed to be a part of the same gang or business and you are not allowed to transfer items or money between them. Players shall RP out any injuries obtained in game and their character actions should take these injuries into consideration. This includes any injuries recently addressed by EMS or at the hospital. In order to rob a player, you must be directly involved and have a valid RP reason to do so. You should not be pocket wiping players, using it as a farming tool or robbing incapacitated players you come upon without having been involved with the scenario. Erotic and Suicide RP are prohibited. General Behavior Harassment and repetitive trolling that impacts other players experiences in a negative way can result in corrective action by a staff member. Hate Speech, sexual harassment, sexual assault and inappropriate sexual comments, personal attacks on players and spamming side chat are all examples of unacceptable behaviors. In addition, repeatedly blocking players from accessing content in the game may result in removal from the servers. Players are prohibited from doing a robbery within 20 minutes of a server reset. If you share, allow, or fail to secure your PC from others, you are still responsible for any actions that occur on BLRP servers. Disruptive Behavior Any behavior that is deemed disruptive by the staff may result in a kick, or ban from the server. Disruptive behavior is defined as any behavior that negatively impacts the game play experience of other players. Examples include VOIP spam, horn spam, police baiting, pocket wiping/chain robbing and out of character discussion. Directly or indirectly threatening another player with a player report or admin action with the intent to intimidate them. Players observed spamming service calls (911, towing, taxi, etc) may receive a kick or temporary ban. Players observed abusing job mechanics for the sake of being disruptive will receive a temporary ban. Random Death Match (RDM) With our focus on RP over rule play, the responsibility on the player is to use violence where it’s appropriate and reasonable to the engagement. We encourage verbal interactions before the use of guns and other violent means. Not every conflict needs to have weapons or guns involved. For example, killing a cop over a joint in your pocket or attacking someone for a scratch in your car may not make sense unless there are other factors in play. If violence is appropriate the following should be considered: Using violence against another player or group without role play leading up to the event is not allowed. You must either state a clear and reasonable demand to an intended target, with reasonable time to respond, or there must be adequate RP leading up to the event in such a manner that all parties recognize the sense of tension and hostility. Hostile RP is valid for 1 hour from the point of initiation. The use of a 'hitman' is not allowed. You are allowed to work with other players to track an individual down however if you want them dead, you are responsible to RP out the scenario yourself. Text (including the /me command) may not be used to initiate hostile RP. Vehicle Death Match (VDM) A vehicle may only be used in immediate, last resort self defense. ie. there is someone standing in front of your vehicle pointing a gun or shooting at you. It should not be used to chase down and run over other players during hostile roleplay. Vehicles may also be used to escape a barricaded location, or to disable another player's during a vehicle chase. All other uses of a vehicle as a weapon are prohibited. Kidnapping If you kidnap another player it's expected that they be held for no longer than 15 minutes unless they choose to continue with scenario. The player shall indicate their request to be released if they are not wiling to RP past the initial 15 minute timer. EMS is a neutral faction on BLRP and as such have no means to defend themselves. As such, EMS may not be held hostage or kidnapped for any reason while they are on duty. Kidnapping players is prohibited at the integrity apartments. Combat Logging, Storing, and Re-spawning Disconnecting from the server or using the re-spawn function to avoid active RP is considered Combat Logging and will result in corrective action. Storing a vehicle into your player garage that has been used as part of the RP scenario is also considered combat logging. Exploiting BLRP has gone through great efforts to ensure that you have all that you need to have an enjoyable and fair experience on our servers. The use of external tools which give you an advantage in game are considered an exploit. This includes, but is not limited to: The use of external cross hairs. The use of macros and scripts to automate functions in a manner which gives you an unfair advantage by reducing the time to execute those actions in game. Abusing a bug in the game or mechanics. This includes glitching into the map, duping money, etc. Meta Gaming Do not use information gained outside of the game-play environment to your benefit, or to locate, stalk, harass or interfere with another player's experience. The use of external communications (ie: Discord, Twitch Chat) to relay or learn in game information is prohibited. External communication should not be used to disrespect or otherwise harass members of the community (directly or indirectly). Disputes between players should remain respectful and in-character at all times. While connected to the server you cannot actively watch or interact (through twitch chat) with a streamer that is also playing on the server. However you can join their stream and mute/minimize it in-order to support the streamer. Game Play Unrealistic Game Play Players should not perform actions which would pose a significant threat to the player’s life in situations where one would not realistically perform that action. Examples include taking extreme jumps off mountains, buildings, and bridges with your vehicle. Players should not utilize unrealistic game mechanics to perform unrealistic actions. Some examples include (but are not limited to): carrying a player on your shoulder while riding a motorcycle, getting inside the trunk of vehicle where you would not realistically fit or does not have a trunk, walking around with a parachute or SCUBA gear equipped when not skydiving or diving, or dropping materials in areas you know other players cannot search or find them. Power Gaming We do not support a must win or must lose mentality at BLRP. Your actions should be focused on promoting RP within and outside of your group. You should not take advantage of in game mechanics or server rules to gain an unfair advantage over other players. There are no predictive outcomes in RP and your actions should not attempt to control the narrative of other players. You are not allowed to force a condition or belief on others. This includes supernatural rp, coming back from the dead, etc. You may, however, RP your belief of those situations. Server restarts, timeouts, or disconnects should not be used to change the direction of a RP situation. For example, a kidnapping victim should not use the opportunity to attack kidnappers. You should not use the rules of the server to gain an unfair advantage. An example of this would be baiting a smaller group into hostile interactions as a means to bypass gang rules (defined below). Value of Life, New Life Rule (NLR), and Revenge Killing Players should value their lives at all times and should make reasonable attempts to preserve their life in any situation. This includes response to hostile interactions as well as avoiding risks in game which would jeopardize their health. During hostile RP it’s expected that you’ll follow reasonable demands from a hostile player when you are in an indefensible situation. This does not mean that the first person to brandish a weapon gets to control the scenario as players are allowed to defend themselves from hostilities if an appropriate opportunity presents itself. Upon incapacitation of a player during hostile RP, neither player may re initiate hostile RP with, or attack the other players, for 15 minutes. There should be a valid reason within RP to participate in revenge hostilities to avoid an endless cycle of violence between parties. Green Zones BLRP has created some areas on the map that are considered Green Zones. The purpose of these zones are to promote and foster RP between potential criminals, the LSPD and DOJ. No external attacks or breakouts from these locations are allowed. For example, if you are detained in MRPD, your group cannot storm MRPD to free you. Given the opportunity, you are allowed to use force to break yourself out. Note: Kidnapping players is prohibited at the integrity apartments. Gangs Gangs are defined as any organized group of players that engage in illegal or hostile RP. Gangs, when possible, should develop a backstory which includes how they were started, what their goals/mission are, identify their turf, etc. The BLRP staff reserve the right to disband any gang that breaks server rules or behaves in an overly toxic manner. The police are not considered a gang however their behavior, response, and numbers will be controlled through the Standard Operating Procedures of each department in coordination with the BadlandsRP Staff. Gang Behavior Active gang members should wear attire that matches style and color in such a manner that they are easily identifiable as a gang. Gangs are expected to participate in RP and should only engage in hostile activities if it makes sense as part of their RP Story. Gangs should not harass or otherwise disrupt the game play of other players. Conflicts between gangs should remain civil and within RP at all times. Gang Sizes There is no limit to the number of members that can belong to a given gang, however gangs are limited to a maximum of 5 active players that are participating in an illegal or hostile scenario. This includes the following: Gang members participating in the RP scenario in any fashion such as providing information as a lookout or, functioning as a getaway driver Gang members seeking to rescue other gang members who are being detained. The detained members count towards the maximum of 5. The exception is for the PRISON BUS TRANSPORT ONLY where the incarcerated do not count towards the gang count. Upon being freed, they are expected to flee the scene and not take part in hostilities. Gangs should not ally with other players, gangs, or security groups to increase their effective size. This includes not only illegal and hostile activities but also relaying information for an active scenario. Gang Violence Initiating hostile RP on any active member of a gang, or being initiated on, constitutes initiation with all active members who are present at that location. Gang members arriving after hostilities have begun must properly integrate themselves into the RP scenario by initiating in a reasonable manner. Gang violence must adhere to all server rules, including hostile initiation, NLR, and meta gaming. Police Raids Gangs are allowed to have up to 10 active hostile members if and only if the LSPD communicates a coordinated raid on your gangs hideout. When undergoing a raid the hostility must be kept in the general area of the hideout. If the LSPD backs away from the scene then the raid should be considered finished. Once the situation is over the allowed hostile gang members should be reduced back to 5.
