  1. Done right = not getting caught. The better your police are, the harder that gets. If police got paid on commission only on fines & arrests, it would be harder for the crims to make all that money.
  2. Fair enough, Just wondering what players thoughts were 56% vs 43% so... we got some room for debate. I don't mind either way again, however I do see each side of this coin, as we don't remove police here for doing crime as would happen in rl if they got caught. Maybe cops that get caught have to do a set number of police dispatch hours "like desk duty". Maybe... crims go to jail, cops get dispatch duty with reduced pay Also thinking that if not at max number of police on then maybe they cant clock out?
  3. Should police characters stay clocked in all the time? Should police characters be aloud to commit crime when not clocked in? Is it fair that police get paychecks that help them do criminal activity when not clocked in? For example 2 characters start at the same time with the goal to buy a meth lab. One is a police officer that gets a paycheck, the other is a civ crim that gets a welfare check. The criminal has to do things that could cause his cash flow to go backwards if they get caught, However the police character plays a cop while racking up a large paycheck. I'm not saying that a crim can't beat the paycheck clock but it would be hard to do so. As the Lab is only 60k, imo the police officer would be able to make that faster. Note: this is a non gang crim i'm talking about, just a normal criminal. maybe a safe cracker or drug seller. hes not robbing player characters. https://strawpoll.com/dgh4zg1g <----straw poll on if your police character should also be aloud to be a criminal. This is just a question, i'm totally fine how it is now.
  4. First off if we decide that loans will be in game, then I think we need a repo man to get back the cars the loans were used for. How would this work? Well im thinking when a player defaults on a loan then the car that was paid for with that loan money is now up for repo. First, the repo player would have to be logged in on the repo job, at the job center, plus own a tow truck. Next the repo driver would be able to open his map and see any cars that are on the map that are up for repo, maybe by a star icon that moves as the subject drives around. Next, the repo driver would have to have a set of lockpicks, to open the door. imo, the car that is getting repossessed should have an alarm this way the owner knows when the driver enters his car. The repo driver would have to notify the pd as to the location of the repo and type of car. this will stop false stolen car reports by the subject. The repo driver then loads the car on the tow-truck, and takes it to the impound. If the subject wishes to recover the car all missed loan pmts and a late fee will have to be paid to get the car back. The code could end there or go as far as a button that could bring up current repo reports showing all names, all last known locations of the car etc, maybe the garage it was last parked in last, maybe the repo driver can access that garage and get the subject car out of the garage (after all it is still a garage). Or... you don't pay the loan back and the car just disappears from your garage no need for for a repo job.
  5. New players that are riding these ridiculous granny bikes around? Players running from the cops that ditched their car in some dark alleyway? Players that don't own a car and cant afford a taxi? Players on the way to work saving to afford a car? Players that are delivering? Drug dealers that get off at bus stops to sell to the ai waiting? Players that as mentioned before want to be bus drivers? A new way to explore the train system where one person has to be on the vehicle for it to spawn? Players that want to rob ppl getting on and off the bus at the bus stops? Imo a bus has a use in a city that not everyone wants to drive a super car. BUT... possibly all the reasons above are why we don't want or need a bus and would rather wait for a train with less stops but at a faster rate of speed. Maybe the player buys a metro ticket and that spawns the train, above and below ground? I like the subway a lot better there is so much potential that is lost.
  6. Shout out to the Homie that landed a chopper on Strawberry yesterday #Vagos
  7. I knew someone suggested this, however my post was more about if the code would allow an AI bus to pick players up and shuttle them more like a train
  8. I know we have talked to serpico in detail about how trains could work and the problems with making them run. I'm thinking of taking the problem and using it to make an even better situation. So from what we have talked about on twitch trains can only work if someone spawns them and if that person leaves the train would be gone. So what if we take that and use it for a bus stop , the player enters any random bus stop and a bus comes to that stop and stops at the next closest bus stop/station. This would be a great idea because it could open up a number of rp situations, plus a new Bus driver job could be implemented. This would also eliminate the need for starter area bikes. (Stand in the bus stop circle bus arrives seconds later), as long as that player is on the bus it would continue to do its bus route. Maybe the bus could also have a moving icon on the map to show players where active routes are .

    We know you know him, here is his body cam
  10. Thanks for the time to anyone that reads this to start. I was thinking about car prices for a casual player. I'm thinking of another game mode idea that can spice things up a bit imo. As a tow driver you don't get many calls so.... that got me thinking. Cars would not only have a price but then a monthly in-game timed lease that would come automatically from ones bank account. Lets take a low price car to start this example. changing it from woning it for 400 to 400 being the down payment for example, as to buy the cheapest car is 300 or 400, i think its 400 for this example it will be 400 down, and in addition there would be another number on the buy list that says lease 300, per mo ingame time. So every 30 days in-game money comes out, if you run out of money your car is up for repo. this would do a few things. A. Let,s say the average player has 5 cars each car has a monthly fee or it gets repossessed. 5 of the 400 priced cars would have a total of 1500 a in-game month being deducted from the bank accounts. B.<--- a New in-game job<-- from the job center "must own tow truck" must have repo license. 20k Drivers get locations of color coded cars on map, drivers can accept and or decline repo jobs. C. The more expensive the car the more the lease. D. Lets be honest, almost no one pays for a car in cash, it's all down payments and a monthly fee. E. In this concept, if your car is successfully reposed and brought back to the impound lot, each day not paid would compound interest and cost more to release. A max time before car is sold at auction and gone, player must re-buy after IMO 5 in-game days of impound. Could open up an auction idea also F. This idea would stop players from using multiple trunks as storage. Guiding those players to buy housing for storage, as housing IMO should be a monthly in-game cost also before the sheriff serves the eviction notice G. the Repossessor would get a blip on radar of where the players car is each time it comes out of a garage and /or is started then the repossessor must actively retrieve the car from the owner, and must notify the police before they attempt any repo, this way the police know the location of possible hostility. The repo driver could imo simply walk up to the player and tell them the car is up for repo, that player could ride with the driver back to the impound and pay the fines and back pay to get the car released. H. Or the driver could wait till the owner leaves the vehicle and use a lock pick to open it and then load it on the tow truck. I. Or the owner could flee, and or fight for his/her vehicle, as then the repo driver could then fight back, and or flee and release that job order due to violence, that could be given to the next driver as a blip of a dif color on the map to indicate to that driver that there could be hostility. Thanks for your time to anyone that reads this. Ps... it doesn't have to stop at cars , this can be for trucks motorcycles, and or aircraft and boats Too bad that other tow truck still doesn't work, that one could just back up to the car and pick it up, or as they call it a Hook and Book! Extra. There could be payments rather then using the word lease and could need to be payed by phone app via the Player. If the player misses a payment the car gets flagged for repo <--- possible edit
  11. based on the video i think that we need to add more barricades around the doors so that police ai can enter without cars blocking them outside, there are 3 blue barricades that cars can not break at the south side of the main bank near the fire exit , those should be made to block around that exit and main entrance to allow for a fix to the car parking exploit and further allow ai police to enter the bank.
