  1. For those that are complaining about the fines being too much for doing illegal jobs let me put it in perspective: 1. Possession of weed - 5k 2. Possession of Controlled Substance (Meth and Coke) - 10k 3. Incidental charges for contraband (dirty money, lock picks, seeds, kits) - 2k As I said earlier getting caught with those items is not what's hurting your ability to make money. You have a choice. IRL most of the people who get caught using or dealing drugs don't get into a huge gun fight with the cops - not all of them run. That is where the fines start to increase. You have a lot of choice in the outcome of your story. Mix it up... sometimes the risk of the run can be a lot of fun... it's a choice. In addition you have the choice to provide really good RP to drive your charges down. You also have the ability to team up and avoid even getting caught by working smartly in groups. There are a multitude of options that YOU have that can influence the outcome in many different directions. To me the in balance isn't in the fines, it's in the attitude that you have to shoot everything out. Sometimes a little bi directional understanding goes along ways. This does not have to be a legal vs illegal, civ vs cops, good vs bad topic. If you want to grind to make some coin - fine, but just remember that the core experience here is to facilitate RP. I use to love the grind of money - I find it fun and relaxing... and then I had what I needed to go screw around. It's not so much about how you get to your RP journey just as long as you get there and don't constantly hide underwater or in a bush to avoid it
  2. There was a time where there was actual civ RP. It wasn't all Gang vs Cop Rp.. I miss those days. When I could actually make a traffic stop and not get held up. Or how about a chase where you weren't also getting chased by 3 other 'gang vehicles'. I have no problem with Gang RP... but the extent of 90% of my gang experience for the past month has been gun play. Cops can't even investigate drug activity without being shot at - mind you no initiation.. just shooting out tires so they can be kidnapped. The issue is that for some reason everyone feels the need to be a part of the gang... and the majority want to RP as the angry gang member who shoots first and asks questions later. Then when they get busted by the cops they get salty for hefty fines. I can tell you a year ago I rarely gave a max ticket. That was because the RP wasn't all Guns, Revenge, and hostility... and there was still crime! For some reason the community has shifted to the mentality that everyone must be a part of a gang and that the gang needs to hate the police, target the police, shoot first ask questions later, and occasionally RP. Now all of that is very generalistic. There are many of you who put a lot of effort into your RP and I am not trying to marginalize it... but my experience has been very negative lately. On the occasion that I arrest someone, I try to rp with them and all I get is a rushed 'give me my ticket so I can move on' attitude. It seems that the interest is just in doing illegal things with your friends and not truly having a dynamic rp exchange with a variety of people. For those that think that the ticketing guide is too severe - remember it was designed this way (long before me) to encourage RP. The server was started with a RP over Gun Play mentality and the rules, laws, and fines were designed to encourage that. Again for the first year and a half i was here it was rare to max out tickets... but there has been a HUGE increase in violence and the violence is cyclical - meaning it just goes back and forth. God forbid that a cop arrest you - now they are targeted and harassed for the rest of the server cycle. While loosely realistic... not really... and certainly not enjoyable when it's the constant not the rare activity. So before you start to throw any group under the bus for discouraging anything... perhaps we could all reflect on how we contribute to the community RP wise.. not just ourselves, our friends, or our gangs.
  3. Change Log May 18, 2019 General Knowledge 3. (Updated) An officer may ask for your ID but you are only required to provide it when being detained for committing a crime or suspicion of committing a crime. Probable Cause 1. (updated) An officer has the right to detain and search a civilian, their vehicle, or a vehicle which they have keys to within the following parameters: They witness the civilian committing a Misdemeanor or Felony crime. They witness the civilian actively selling drugs. They witness the civilian attaching a speed bomb to a vehicle. They witness the civilian driving off road in any vehicle. They witness you stealing cement from the Cement Works Factory. Note that being in possession of cement outside of the Cement Works is not considered illegal. They find you at the same coordinates in which the illegal informer notified them of drugs being manufactured. They find you at the same coordinates in which they received a 911 notification of drug selling activities. An undercover officer witnessing any of the above scenarios may relay the information to a uniformed officer and their testimony provides probable cause. 2. (added) An officer has the right to detain you and perform a Gun Shot Residue (GSR) test if they find you in the general area of a 911 call reporting gun shots. A positive provides probable cause to detain and search you as part of the investigation. 3. (updated) The current illegal weapons and items are as follows: Guns: Deagle (Pistol50) Melee: Cavalry Dagger, Broken Bottle, Switchblade, Battleaxe Equipment: Cannabis Seeds, Coca Leaves, Dirty Money, Lockpicks, Mobile Meth Lab Kit, Safe Cracking Kit, Speed Bomb, Weapon Disablement Kit Drugs: Cocaine (any form), Meth (any form), Weed (any form) 3. When LSPD receives a notification of a 'suspicious transaction' from a business store, they are granted cause to investigate the shop financials. If they are informed of 'unreported income' then they are granted PC to raid the business store. The business owner will be wanted for Money Laundering at that time. Lawyer You may request to have a lawyer present whenever you have at least one Felony charge against you unless it's 15 minutes prior to the storm at which time your request will be denied. If there are hostile threats or hostile activities around the police station, the request for a lawyer may be denied for safety reasons. A lawyer can RP down a Felony ticket to a pardon (Jail time, Restitution, and Fines). Once you have been jailed and have requested a lawyer an officer will make the formal request for the lawyer to report to the police station. The lawyer will have 10 minutes to arrive. The lawyer must be dressed professionally, provide identification, provide board certification, and consent to be searched. If any of these requirements are not met the lawyer will be sent away and the officer will resume processing you. A lawyer who has recently been hostile towards LSPD, is currently wanted for a crime, or has illegal items found on them at the time of the search will be turned away by the LSPD. “Time served” in police custody does not apply when a player requests a lawyer to represent them. There shall be a limit of 1 lawyer per suspect.
  4. I've started to RP it as their injuries as too severe for me to help. That the local EMS is overwhelmed but we have called for a life flight to bring them to the hospital. In order to get them ready for the flight their pockets need to be emptied of all contents (EMS removes clothing for major trauma IRL anyhow)... that way when the life flight picks them up and they are healed at the hospital it answers the empty pocket syndrome.
  5. I can't comment on the code side but as a player I think this would be a huge and valuable addition.
  6. I would add and ask that if you feel any specific officers broke policy that you file an IA report and the leadership will look into it further.
  7. If police receive multiple calls to the same location for various crimes then they have a right to ask people to disperse. It would happen IRL. I would suggest that you be more safe. You're comments on RP are appreciated.... people dying constantly I would not consider the best RP in terms of value of life. They are responsible for public safety and if people are constantly getting downed due to behavior then it would be more than appropriate to break up a dangerous party.
  8. It was one of the reasons that we introduced undercover officers. I think we just need to bring the UC out more.
  9. With 70 people in a queue, 1/2 hour is way too much to have 1 of 32 people sitting idle doing nothing. While i get people want to hold their spot, we have to be fair to those who have the time to be active.
  10. Officers are not allowed to camp illegal areas but they do patrol them from time to time. You just need to be sneaky. There are several tactics that you can use to your advantage. Trust me, people make millions each day doing illegal things
  11. Ok well if that's the path you want to take then go for it... I'm not going to coddle you and your passive aggressiveness. The reality is we listen to all feedback and often implement changes based on the feedback as long as it's inline with the BadlandsRP philosophy and our goals for the server. Your suggestion was listened to but the answer from an admin side is that the rule will not change. Just because we don't agree with you doesn't mean we didn't listen. So if you want to take your opinions and run away - your choice, but enough of the grief on this tread please.
  12. It's the answer that I give when someone doesn't take no for an answer. You were given answers but continued to argue for it. So from an Admin perspective I'm saying that rule will not change.
  13. It's not going to happen for all the reasons already stated.
  14. Just make it so we can inspect them for blood at the scene of a crime Pls like and subscribe
  15. I kind of like it. I know that there have been a lot of threads on 'new' stuff to do but for me personally I'd like to see a few new illegal things added especially if they spread activity across unused parts of the map.
