    July Update

    Keep on mowin'!
  2. There's literally other, easier ways to distribute weapons illegally not through gun dealers. Like just grant a certain amount of these to leaderships of illegal factions so they could distribute them to their members, which then could either chose to keep them or sell them off to random people in the street for crack money.
  3. Anything out of moral norms was already banned a long time ago and people were okay with things the way they were. Sexual roleplay used to bring a lot interesting roleplay venues into lsrp - strip clubs, underground clubs, brothels, adult movie studios, prostitution rings and so on. And all of those venues would bring something to do for everyone - illegals, civilians, cops and so on... And it wasn't forced onto anyone, everyone had the choice if they want to take part in it or go on with their own roleplay.
  4. Depends on the location. but it is illegal in, if not all, but at least in some parts of the US. Unrestricting these weapons will undoubtedly lead to 90% of the population carrying them. With the advertised in-game internet system I'm sure you could potentially create online stores selling them that would somehow make it a bit harder to purchase them, but they simply cannot appear in physical stores.
  5. I agree with all, except brass knuckles and switchblade knives - those are illegal and can't be purchased in stores.
  6. Speeding, illegal parking, putting pineapple on pizza
  7. You already have to accept the frisk. You'll get the same outcome, just with extra steps and this doesn't prevent stalling at all. Exactly. And stalling is also not allowed, therefore you can forum report that as well. This is just a closed loop - restricting one party will allow the other to abuse and vice-versa. And in the end of the day we'll still all meet in the forum report section. This doesn't solve anything. And there's no exact definition for stalling, naturally, native English speakers will type much faster then, for example me, for whom English is the 2nd or even 3rd language. I've been accused for stalling numerous times, when the robber would type in the speed of a court stenographer, whereas I have to think over what I'm about to write,
  8. I'm sure this would lead to heavy abuse, because it is less risky. And it would make robbing someone using an M4 assault rifle and a sports car even more convenient.
  9. I think the way we had it in SAMP was sufficient - it wasn't done in public, there were basic rules surrounding it and in 99% of the cases people would follow them, haven't heard about any complaints regarding since like 2014. Micromanaging peoples roleplay seems a little too invasive to be honest, especially as long as it's realistic and doesn't bother anyone not involved. After all, this would be quite hard to control anyways, and in my opinion, it's a waste of staffs time. Yet, I would target to punish players that use LSRP as a platform solely for erp and nothing else - that I wouldn't approve. And another thing, this kind of restriction would eliminate various roleplay ventures we had before - prostitution rings, unlicensed strip clubs etc. Things that involve both the illegal and legal roleplayers. I've had a quite a lot of interesting investigations into the prostitution rings back when I was VICE. I'd say this is a bit of an overstatement. I personally haven't engaged in any of those acts myself, but I'm against restricting roleplay which isn't unrealistic or bothering/offensive to others. I'll repeat myself once again - the way we had it in samp was perfectly fine. And as for age verification - I'm sure that by collecting personal data like DOB etc. LSRP would be violating the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and could even potentially lead to legal actions. However, most of the donators are 18+ as banks don't allow online transactions on junior cards, nor they give out credits cards to minors. But even that is pointless as I don't see any way how you could implement a age verification system in-game. TL;DR The way we had in samp was perfectly fine.
  10. Agreeing without any doubts. Cars never meant much to players in ls-rp, because they were really easy to get and didn't require any care, hell, you didn't even need to refuel them that often - maybe once per two months, if you haven't sold or scrapped it yet. They must become assets that players worry and care about. Unpopular opinion - this should apply to faction and company cars too. I'd love to see some proper fleet management done,
  11. I've always been an advocate for niche civil and legal roleplay. I think there are certain agencies that would bring some interesting roleplay, but again, neither PD or SD does what those agencies do. I.e. IRS - would make sense as we're going to have some sort of taxation system, therefore it would be interesting to see some sort of tax enforcement being done ICly, rather then it being hardcoded to happen automatically, opens new opportunities for both legal and illegal roleplayers. I remember a long time ago there was a small group of people roleplaying as coastguards and I really found them interesting after seeing their screenshot thread - they brought some life into the waters, as usually it would be only people spam-fishing and occasional police chases. Sadly they were asked not to do that by staff as they weren't an official faction. I think these kinds of small groups could bring good roleplay opportunities. I used FBI and Park Rangers as a poor example, as they wouldn't bring anything in value or unique, they do what PD/SD basically does, but there's plenty of unique things that I haven't thought about.
  12. Doesn't require much OOC regulations in my opinion. They just need to balance out how much cash "appears" and "disappears", as a closed-circuit economy is not possible.
  13. It's just not enough to have it as entire separate faction. There's a lot of interesting LEO faction concepts that would die down due to only small groups of people being interested - FBI, IRS, Park Rangers, US Marshall service etc. I could see them being incorporated into a government faction under a unified leadership. I.e. Have a faction called "LS LEO Agencies" that would have a few people as leadership and just have a bunch of ranks "IRS Agent", "FBI Agent", "Park Ranger", "Constable", "Coast guard" - where those small interested groups could be housed. This way if one of them goes inactive they simply get replaced by another group that has a good idea. Eventually, if one of those groups shows superior performance, activity and roleplay quality, they could get the chance to become a legal faction.
  14. More civil roleplay, instead of being focused on gangs and cops only.
  15. The stash car is just an easy way to eliminate the majority of risks that come when selling drugs. There could be a cooldown period once you despawn a vehicle, let's say you need to wait 30 minutes before you can spawn that specific vehicle back, however, this won't eliminate the abuse issues to the fullest, as people will still metagame to go around. /pm srry bro, I gotta wait 10 mins before I can sell you. - stuff like this.
  16. Setting prices in stone event for assets being sold by players shouldn't be done, the economy shouldn't be micromanaged to this point. You wouldn't even be able to scam people this way.
  17. If there's ever to be another LEO faction, it shouldn't be something this niche. Niche Departments or Units can be easily implemented under any existing factions - what GOV is basically doing. As we spoke with Mmartin during one of the legal factions - if there's enough professional interest for a niche LEO faction, it should be considered and created under one of the already existing factions and if there's ever going to be another LEO faction, then it's going to be something bigger and more multifunctional, like State Police.
  18. This is too niche too be a whole separate LEO faction. At this point I agree that LSSD is more then enough to handle it. The Government consists of multiple departments that have nothing to do with each other, but we understand that there's completely no point of even trying to separate them into different factions.
  19. Sure, as long as you can't specify what make and model that car is, otherwise everyone will be once again driving a 2022 Mercedes Benz G500 BRABUS while in-game the car is a Picador.
  20. No, let the thing die already. I myself was a die-hard refusing the switch, but as time goes I saw how many more possibilities Rage offers, how many old players return and how hyped everyone is. Server hasn't even launched and I'm already stoked. Besides, no one has the resources and time to upkeep and manage a server that would simply provide freeroam grounds, as staff is extremely busy with the V server. Afterall, three weeks left...
  21. Instead of having scripted jobs there should be server-owned companies which players could join freely and that would pay less then player owned companies, encouraging players to switch to a player owned company, that does the same tasks, as soon as possible. In my opinion, jobs where you just walk onto a spot and type a command should be a thing of the past and we should move on to more immersive systems. While hunting and fishing shouldn't even be considered as jobs, in my opinion. You get a rod and you go fishing, selling your catch to a fish processing plant. Same with hunting - you get a rifle, a license and go hunting, selling the hunted animals to a butcher. Hunting now could be especially interesting, as it is possible to have actual wildlife.
  22. We always had these. But they weren't used that much tbh.
