  1. Welcome, hope you have fun here!
  2. Hey man welcome to Badlands and GTA RP. It can be a lot to learn to get started so let us know if you have more questions.
  3. Thanks man, that's really nice of you to say. I'm glad you think that I make a difference. You do a great job yourself and put in a lot of effort in to PD and your RP so keep up the good work.
  4. I have a couple of simple suggestions. First one is to add the ability for mechanics to wash cars. Maybe tie it to the Wash Windows animation and they could have another avenue for RP as a mechanic with people coming to them instead of going to the car washes where there is no RP. I don't think they have this ability currently so I apologize if it's already a thing. Also I thought the gas pump in front of the mechanic shop near Sandy Shores airport was operational but it doesn't seem like it is. I think making the pump there work would add to the full service station feel since there is already pumps there. As PD I drive by there all the time and typically need a car wash, repairs, or fuel so it would be a good place to stop and RP with the mechanics that have been using that area. A gas pump at Mission Row PD and Pillbox garage area would be pretty cool too similar to how we have the ATM added nearby to help those factions be easily supplied/resupplied for their shifts.
  5. Me and the boys getting ready to fly our fighter jets when we need to start fighting crime in the sky
  6. Just took a look at the whitelist template and the beginning which I posted below might be confusing to new players. My suggestion is just updating it to reflect that the 2.0 is in fact released and live, unless this is intentional. "Welcome! BadlandsRP is in the process of transitioning to a private roleplay community, known as Badlands 2.0. We are currently in the pre-approval stage. Applying (and being approved) for whitelisting at this stage will ensure you have access to Badlands 2.0 as soon as it is released. If you are interested in joining us, begin by filling out the application below, and submitting it here. This application will test your understanding of the Badlands 2.0 Server Rules, as well as give us a demonstration of your roleplay ability. Please put as much effort into your application as possible, and respond as your character would, where appropriate, to the best of your ability. Doing so will give you the best chances of being approved. If you do not know your BadlandsRP User ID, connect to fivem.blrp.net in FiveM to find it."
  7. It seems like the admins have been buzzing through the applications so I think it's unlikely that he wouldn't have gotten a response by now if it was submitted properly
  8. I'm torn. I really want a full server but I've been having a lot of good RP and it's nice not having to worry about the Sierra Limas
  9. Yea different punch in spots for each job would be more interesting
  10. Depends on the mic you got! What is it? Pop filters help with lessening the amount of air you breathe in to your mic when using plosives like P and B sounds. They also stops you from spitting in to the mic which will keep it alive longer. I recommend looking up some youtube videos specific to your mic and you'll be a pro in no time. That's how I learned how to use my Blue Yeti
  11. It would be kind of cool to have like an "illegal scanner" or something that they could listen to 1 of the pd channels or something. It wouldn't be something that I'd want to see be really easy for them to have or for everyone to have but could be interesting
  12. Happy to have you in the city @Juggsrp
  13. Amazing article! I knew you were being modest when you said you weren't the best writer. Very well written and fun to read. I love Kye and the Money Mafia. Can't wait for the next article!
  14. Hey Miller! If you click on your name up on the navigation bar > go to account settings > you should be able to find the spot to link your Twitch and Discord.
  15. Starting up a YouTube series documenting some police interactions on Badlands starring my character Officer Brady. Hopefully in some future episodes I'll be able to have some guest stars and include content from the perspective of other officers on the LSPD and possibly civilians as well. I'll post all episodes in this thread as they are released. Not sure of the time frame between episodes but I'll try to get them out regularly going forward. Would definitely appreciate any thumbs up and new subscribers to the channel! Thanks for checking it out. Here is the pilot episode:
  16. I watched a clip back of me getting punched down last night. I had a vest on that was already damaged and the punches only hurt my health and then the vest disappeared. I have seen fall damage take away vest HP though so not sure exactly how it works.
  17. I think more options to launder money would be cool like for example an illegal area at the casino (I've seen this on another server) where players could use mechanics to launder it like how you turn weed buds in to joints or something similar. Some things to balance it could be alerts to police after a random amount of cash has been laundered, a set amount you can launder before police are alerted, or a cool down period after a player has laundered cash that would alert PD if anyone else attempted to launder before the cool down was over. You could also make it so that laundering money this way yields significantly less than using a business so that way there are more opportunities for RP if players want a better yield. I'm sure there are other ways to make this work as well, I'm just throwing out some ideas. It seems like the system now is too high risk for the reward but I'm also not entirely familiar with the whole process. It would just be nice to have more ways to do it. Maybe instead of having it automatically alert police that someone is laundering with a business make it so that it only alerts them after a certain amount has been laundered in the ways I described above. I think it would be fun to have the amount that would alert police unknown or just be RNG so that you never knew if they were coming to investigate or not. This would allow businesses that stick to laundering smaller amounts at a time to go unnoticed but would still leave room to be caught in the act especially if they were getting greedy with how much they were trying to launder. As far as determining whether money is dirty or not you could have police ignore dirty cash unless the suspect has either robbed a store, sold drugs, were in the possession of drugs/illegal guns, or in the act of laundering money in which case it would be confiscated when they were charged with such a crime. Otherwise PD could question about why they have so much cash on them but if there was no probable cause to believe it was dirty cash then the player could keep it to avoid unrealistic RP described by the OP. Apologies if any of this has already been mentioned or if I'm not exactly familiar with the current system. I'm just basing these ideas off of how it's been described to me. I'd love to know what other people think.
  18. Not sure who's behind the character but running in to Fredrick Bankman III at the bank yesterday was really awesome! I was shocked to see people working in the bank when I walked in but ended up opening up a savings account and making some investments that yielded a substantial return. Thanks for the great RP Edit: I think it was @Merr Khan as Bankman. Thanks!
