  1. This is just great comedy at this point. Every new staff post we get another bizarre bit of information like jannies below administration (of what? there's no server LOL) not being allowed to contact mmartin, taking a million years to perform basic tasks like writing a summary of a meeting or a man's incapability of, in the year of our lord 2022, having an internet connection for 5 minutes during an entire month or more.
  2. Gonna delete this thread too? I'm sure that'll bring back everyone who left cuz this shit is a year behind schedule LOL
  3. What a joke. What is this, the 4th or 5th delay? And now not even a release date? Personally my interest has essentially disappeared. There's no way you ever thought the server was going to be fit for release 4 months ago and now can't even give us an estimate lmfao. If this server even ever releases (at this point, I wouldn't bet on it), it will likely be DOA. As someone else said, you can only ride the nostalgia train for so long.
  4. RageMP is not MTA or SAMP. It cannot handle the load. People have been trying to tell you this the entire thread. It's not about what we want, it's about what is FEASIBLE for the server.
  5. Six clubs? At my most optimistic estimate I think we'll get like 400~ players every night (and this is very optimistic past the first few days). That's a nightclub per 66 players. If we end up with 300, that's one for every 50. And that's not counting the 6 players and other staff each nightclub needs to have. Should be limited to two. One high/mid end and one low end. Edit: Six clubs and one bar (in Vinewood). No pawnshops, no restaurants or anything else more low-key? This isn't the way to go imo.
  6. RageMP isn't nearly as stable as SAMP and MTA were (lol) so I don't know if this is a good idea. Maybe keep them spawned on a hour or so timer if possible, as a compromise?
  7. That sounds very good and like the perfect solution to my problem.
  8. I'm sure many will be available. But what's the actual plus of limiting roleplay this badly when going by caliber and general similarities to allow people to roleplay what they want is much simpler and beneficial to RP? What issue has there ever been with people roleplaying different firearms as long as they're similar to what's in the game? There's no point in adding every Glock generation into the game as a different gun when you can just say so in a /do and let people roleplay having an older or newer model. I believe we should be allowed to roleplay weapons as whatever we want as long as they're fairly similar. Roleplaying my AK as a vz. 58 or my SNS as a PF-9 isn't exactly going to hurt anyone. But the gun you have in the script won't. It will do the same damage, expend the same ammunition and be reloaded the same way. It doesn't matter if you're RPing having some piece of shit Jimenez Arms 9mm or a modern Taurus g3c. It's just RP flavor that never hurt anyone and can add to a character. Stifling roleplay like this is incredibly unnecessary for the very few gains to be had.
  9. Not gonna lie I was thinking everyone had already silently agreed to ignore that for being really stupid However, now that I'm reading this with more attention, the part about weapons feels wrong to me. It unnecessarily limits weapons roleplay and makes it far blander. Why not just force you to roleplay a weapon with an appropriate caliber, which, while it does rule out a lot of exotic firearms, still gives you at least some freedom?
  10. Pretend there's a fictional river on the north ocean side of the map. Problem solved. Just kidding. Anyways is this really that big a debate though? Replace the state with SA and call it a day. I never referred to VC, LC, SF or LV much myself but I really don't care if it's "allowed" (no matter how much you want to, new players WILL still mention it) or not.
  11. Roleplaying LS as an island would be absolutely bizarre. The map limitations suck but I think we're all smart enough to pretend we're not in the middle of the ocean.
  12. Getting on the character customization server reminded me of how much I hate GTAV's version of it. Any word on when/if we're gonna get ped skins? All the hairstyles look like complete ass and I don't want to regress to spamming /ame's so I can properly RP a fat character.
  13. Should have seen the discord/mmartin stream that day. There were dudes 100% struggling with it and getting 10 or 15 answers wrong. Honestly I don't think it matters that much, we used to have the questions you had to answer IIRC and half of it was complete bullshit like having to reword rules which was more annoying than hard, and we had plenty of DMers and dudes who could barely roleplay anyway due to people sharing answers/it being available online. I can def see why you'd be concerned though. Story requirements were fine too imo. I don't want to have to write a novel to get on the server, especially if your character is young there really just isn't that much to say that's relevant, the point is making your own story on the server.
  14. idk about feeling like an npc but it makes me mad as hell when it looks like I'm rping with a dude's keybinds this stretches from the cop who may as well be a police officer soundboard to criminal whose favorite sentence is "where you from cuh?" /me rushes the individual
  15. Can't wait for the old forums to come back so i can actually rescue all the old shit that's still around
  16. Is ALT:V really that much better? What I've seen from RageMP and FiveM has definetely not impressed me (about as bad as SAMP before lagshooting was fixed). Obviously it's not gonna change but I hope RageMP really does improve a ton.
  17. Again I have to say I 100% understand what you're trying to say. Slippery slopes are real, obviously, but in my opinion this is one of the few topics that's best left behind a locked door and completely inaccessible. Nothing to gain, everything to lose. GTA V isn't SAMP - SAMP was incredibly obscure compared to online GTA especially with the boom of voice "rp" servers. All the other shit you need OOC perms is almost equally weird to want to roleplay but pedo shit is really on a completely different level. Again, especially consider the fact that krisk was an admin here once.
  18. I can definitely see your point in trying not to restrict anything but I can't see anything positive coming from allowing pedo RP. It's an incredibly sensitive topic for very good reasons. It doesn't benefit the server, much to the contrary, it opens it up to media attention (you never know when a bored "journalist" is around) and attracts the lowest of the low onto the server. Not to mention you have to legit be a weirdo IRL to want to RP that. And again, I have to mention that LSRP already has a somewhat unfortunate past with nonces. There's no positive and a whole lot of negatives. Plus it's just morally wrong to have that shit portrayed in something that's decidedly not very mature. There's a difference between Lolita handling the topic and a GTA V RP server, to say the least.
  19. gonna miss pming random people and asking for rape perms anyways, yeah, no real reason for pedophilia rp to be around in any case though i suspect this is a case of it falling through the cracks we really don't need or want another krisk situation or similar
  20. i dunno man I don't want to talk shit or anything but I've been thinking of what street gang faction to join and all the terrible grammar I see on a bunch of threads is really putting me off This one looks interesting though.
  21. I never thought that was too bad. It compensated for how unreliable houses were as stashes (who never had the server reset in the middle of the night and come online to an empty ass stash spot before?). Old car ownership system and everything surrounding it worked 100% fine for me tbh, not really anything I'd change about it.
  22. lmfao people who do that shit don't care, they're going to namechange, go right back up their OOC friends and restart the process. I've seen it happen in real time (over VOIP, yes) probably more than 50 times in the years I RPed on LSRP. They're not here for the roleplay, they're here to be on VOIP with their friends while they find thinly veiled excuses to shoot people for sick block wipe compilations on youtube. This has happened as long as there have been RP communities and it will continue to happen, forever. trying to fight shitty rpers by hurting everyone is just fighting a losing battle. They will always be there and it's why ajails and bans were made. LSRP already forced you to CK in these situations IIRC anyways. It just rarely applied because only very rarely are you actually caught in a situation where a CK is truly justified.
  23. have fun playing there then? tf this is just proof that this shit doesn't actually do anything but get people to spend money on namechanges, or else it wouldn't happen at all
  24. I don't agree with universal forced CKs. The only thing that results in is shittier characters because you have to pump out another every time you get hit with a stray in a city where crime will undoubtedly exceed the rate of the average warzone. Faction CKs have always been there. CKs for shootouts with the PD give too much power to legal factions unless you want to start enforcing them for both sides in which case it results in the first problem anyway. I'm OK with CK applications though and especially faction CK wars as always. I think LSRP had it down fine. This is a bad/good roleplayer issue and bad roleplayers should eventually be weeded out. You have to remember at some point that it's a game. No one's gonna shit themselves and die if you don't roleplay having been in a thousand shoot outs.
  25. I can't find anything about that. https://gta.fandom.com/wiki/Bolingbroke_Penitentiary
