    Vinewood in many ways is a paradoxical society. On the one hand, you got the city of dreams with Vinewood as the center of upper class glamour and snobby celebrity superstars. On the other, you got the strange and bizarre cult of aspiring youth that pursue the fame and glory of the flipside at all costs. This thread will showcase a collection of tales depicting events of a modern multi-ethnic community of youngsters that settled around the Alta and Hawick area in Vinewood to escape their distinctive pasts and seek better fortunes.

    Used to love the interactions between PD and my former faction when we were roleplaying in Rancho. Some of those cops are still around, shout out to them. I had my best roleplay experience with these people but I gotta be honest though, for the past half-year I have seen a huge deterioration in the PD on this server, sure it's hard to control the quality of one's members, especially when the faction is as big as PD but had any other faction's members been acting the way I've seen members of the PD act, it would have caused serious consequences for that faction (Not saying there been no consequences, I genuinely don't know as I'm not staff or in the PD). Nonetheless, I respect the work PD put in and I genuinely hope I've been unlucky with meeting these people as like I stated before I have had some great roleplay with members of the PD. I know not everyone is a metagaming trigger happy robot without emotions in the PD and that's not what I want to say either as I know and had the pleasure of roleplaying with several good roleplayers from the PD. I am also unable to say if the leadership in PD has a close watch on their members as I don't do police RP but as a faction leader that has been in leadership in many factions I've often had to be responsible for my members and their actions, this does not seem to apply to the PD though. Is gang unit still a thing? Have not seen them for a long time. Would be very nice to see them again as well as maybe a second police station. Keep it up.

    LSPD replaces fines with loot boxes to improve the experience Nobody likes getting fined. No matter how it's managed, it usually is a bad moment for the person receiving it, and an instant of joy and delight for the officer issuing it. This was seen as a discrepency by Wilson, the new Marketing and Customer Experience Manager hired by the LSPD. His solution? Balancing the joy more, and offering the people receiving fines a more enticing experience. Of course, having to pay for a (supposed) vehicular crime is hard to make fun. It took Wilson several months of research, and after observing the officers' behavior for so long, he finally figured out what the best solution was. Inspired by the mechanics used in video games, he suggested to replace fines with loot boxes, containing various amounts of money the person receiving it would have to pay. « It creates a true element of suspense and surprise! And with the right animations it can even be an EPIC moment! ». The mechanics are quite simple. Every time an LSPD officer pulls you over, he will provide you with a loot box to open. This loot box will contain 4 cards, whose quality range from "common" (a $200 fine) to "legendary" (a $5000 fine). The combination of the four cards you obtain will indicate how much money you must pay, regardless of the crime you may or may not have actually committed. For the few lucky ones, we were told a special Apex Legendary card can sometimes drop... Will you be among the first? Some groups of citizens feel concerned about potential abuse, especially about being fined for crimes they never committed in the first place. However, many remarked this was common practice. And from an operational point of view, the LSPD chief of police was certain this novelty « will not fundamentally change the way our officers give away fines. ». It will merely « Make it a more friendly experience, with lights and music » instead of « something so grim ». As for Wilson, he claims to be « delighted by that change, although we will most likely use another term than loot box, since it doesn't contain loot. It's more of a surprise mechanic! ».

    I put my two cents together already and don't feel like i've been given a fair answer. No cop is going to stand and argue with a paramedic whether to self transport or not from a realistic point of view like they did with me. I do not accept to take such things In Character when that's just a clear fault in mindset of the faction members and their portrayal of American law enforcement officers in a metropolis. They can be trained all they want to be trained but it's not their job to do paramedic duties despite understanding, like I said, the fact that they sometimes must given circumstances. I understand the very volatile nature of crime rates spread across neighborhoods but it sounds like those types of situations need to be addressed in IC terms by bringing in city wide tactical alerts, forcing officers to partner up and a much more broader and cautious approach with high regard to officer safety. They did not portray such fear when encountered the situations I did, and they weren't even in the same neighborhoods to begin with. In regards to clearing officers and having officers on scenes, you're still not getting my point and it seems like ranking people's mindset is also to attend 3 calls and spread 3 officers across them instead of putting all of 3 officers in 1 call to provide quality police role-play. You instead seem like you want to police the server and put as many players in jail. Just because you've been stuck with FD and someone got away with a robbery isn't going to hurt anybody and especially not you as a police role-player. I'd appreciate a leadership point of view. If not, I've just said what I wanted to say and we'll agree to disagree. I appreciate your responses, I just don't see things the way you see it is all. I'll look into PLM to see if it's indeed of poor role-play quality in their eyes having cops argue with paramedics with an ambulance on scene on who should transport an injured victim, and I'll be sure to start reporting people to them for poor role-play from now on. And if not, I'll make ends meet and take it IC to see how far it goes. Interjecting with an injured person could cost a police department a hefty lawsuit and there's quite a track record of that in real life. It's why most cops either administer first aid if they can but generally don't touch a victim by saying they're not medics.
