  1. Good Roleplayers *Dabs* Someone's probably already made that joke.
  2. They read like the kid that you all hated to play with cause they're like: "Nyeheh you can't hurt my action man with your anti-shield gun because I have an anti-shield gun shield." A lot of people have a paranoid 'give an inch, take a mile' perspective. Though if it's prevalent that they think someone is gonna kill them over some shitty in character meme then that's a different can of worms to be dealt with.
  3. Yeah, my original question was slang being used in /me's, not about talking in /me's if it came out that way. Personally for the latter having a conversation partially in /me's is fine. But Selena covered that. People do actions whole talking, they don't immediately drop their actions,l and go robotic, I can understand the aversion to it a little, but not the almost vehement hate towards it. But I'm used to DnD and other games where it's completely acceptable to do that and even encouraged.
  4. Yeah I've no issues with it being used when talking. Me not understanding someone talking is completely fine, that's an IC issue. Like I said,I was meaning when it bleeds into trying to understand a /me. I've seen it pop up only a couple of times. I'm not trying to frame it as some huge issues, I'm just curious as to why do it.
  5. As an outsider to this sort of RP, I've noticed through screenshots and reports that every now and then that /me's end up containing phrases or descriptions using Slang or words associated with gang culture. I get that you're enjoying your character and you might find it immersive, but doesn't it make it harder for people to work out your actions or lead to issues when people are trying to RP with you? I remember a report a couple of weeks ago which ended up being mistaken identity because when he asked why the person shot him they responded with pretty much "Mandem got gatted blud no ting haha OwO xD" and so they reported them, but it turned out they were just messing around. This is me just being curious I guess. I'm not interested in that side of the server when I do play and this is 'General discussion' so...Why do it? I understand your character talking like that, but why make your actions harder to read when it's just that, explaining an action?
  6. I think one of the main issues people having staring in from the outside is that most of the times the gangs just aren't appealing. There's no soul or character to them and it devolves Into just 'we live on these four houses so we gang now.' Theres nothing unique to most of them, people get shit on for trying to make a 'Ballas' faction or whatever the SP gang was called but honestly even if we had them they'd still not really be anything different to what we do have. Also I think a lot of people like to read the reports because we're nosy, it's like slowing down to see a car crash or watching police shows on TV. When the majority of reports are summed up as 'gang shot my gang so report' it's so boringly dry and the responses range from being a smug cunt or so caustic to one another that it just sets a bad precedent. From what I'm told (though wouldn't be able to back it up) most gangs end up being the same group of people cycling characters rather than any new blood. It's probably because people see how they treat one another OOCLY and the rampant issues in the player reports section that they just go 'fuck it'. Like places being extorted by bikers who literally go inside a food joint, get turned down and then MURDER one of the workers for it. Or someone being pushed down the stairs in there own place after telling them no while trying to extort them Infront of everyone in a half filled restaurant and then running out the door before people can respond. No one wants to take you seriously because most of you treat it like GTAO with a little bit of writing or a Gmod DarkRP server. The problem is mostly the people, can sugar coat it as 'script issues' all you like.
  7. I made a character with a friend to do the same sort of thing, being a more indie and chic jewellery and clothing store. We realized that stores would be kind of awkward to take a hold of because the main draw to using something like that (a clothing store) makes FAR too much money passively to be given over to players, and then no one is going to buy the items because...well, it's not worth it serverside. No one really cares about it when you can just pay the 100 and do it that way.
  8. Except there's nothing to show for your apprent background differences between people. The issue I feel is that being 'rich' isn't something that's incorporated into the servers style. Money can ultimately bring a lot to bare in reality. In server what can it do? That number at the top right is just a sink for property, cars and other assorted vehicles. There isn't anything there that is explicitly for 'rich people'. I think the starting funds kind of goes into it personally. Id like the choice to sit down with an admin, wipe the 40hour new character period and get a lump sum at the start that's agreed on.
  9. Well the problem with starting at the top is you can't. There's some people who are just rich, but it isn't really accounted for on the server. I doubt the average player could go up to an Admin and say "Hey I'd like X amount to start my character and roleplay them how I want." But that's because I'm a cynic. Who knows. Maybe someone COULD come up with a well drawn out character plan, idea scape and offer something legitimately interesting to the server, but I think it'd end up being shackled so heavily or your be forced to dance to a tune that it'd end up being so guided that it feels like it isn't your character anymore. It's some check boxes you had to fill to attempt to play what you want and that's all its allowed to be.
  10. Only using your quote Aldo because you're to the point, this goes to everyone else making this comment. It'd be an IC issue if there could be a way to solve the problem ICly. There isn't. Apart from blocking people so you don't see them. Or the police proactively going out of their way to respond with a cybercrimes style unit (which will never happen) there isn't a way to deal with it. If it was most of these posts wouldn't exist, they'd be flagged immediately, logged and deleted. They likely wouldn't be up more then 10 minutes. There is no oversight or ic admin team to deal with it. It's just spawn and Nervous making sure people don't get out of hand. If you posted an image of an AK on a Table with boatloads of fucking cocaine around it, I'm pretty sure you wouldn't be surprised to have ATF or local police battering down your door, why should LS be any different? But that would mean having to grab a group of people who simply moderate FB from an IC / OOC perspective constantly which is imo untennable. You don't have anyone to play management because of the sheer effort it would take to manually check each post for 'Sureno number one look at my drugs' garbage posts. Because they are, they're made because they know they can get away with it.
  11. From experience. Carefully turn tapping with the Hakuchou brings it's top speed from 120 to about 200 while still having some turning capability and a rather slow bleedoff when your return to two wheels, on a good day in the highway they're going nearly double the speed of the lesser end cars, and +50 than the higher end cars. Couple this then with a viewrange of what...about 500metres now? It doesn't take long for them to be gone, after that the lead gets exponentially worse as without Heli aid that person is gone. The police have very little in the way of keeping up.
  12. So we're at a point of: The Bikes are able to outrun most vehicles due to GTA's handling of wheelies and top speeds, leaving nearly everything but the interceptor in a position to be outran. At this point in time being hit with a beanbag causes the downed system to kick in, meaning the person is ejected from their bike. This is against most IRL practices and goes against IRL conventions. That being said it's the only way for them to be dealt with. I get that it's frustrating but I'd rather the cops not have to go 'Welp can't fuck with this guy'. That being said I personally believe if you got hit with a beanbag for whatever reason, you should honestly go with it, if they intercept you from the front and dome you, which is going to be your helmet or sternum as you're travelling into it, you're fucking gone. I'm a biker myself with sports bikes and have had a few close calls. If you get yourself into that mess because you can 'pop a wheelie and outrun everything' they're well within their rights to try and stop you with what they have. Fuck I'd probably take the CK as I hit the ground and pretend the asphalt is a cheese grater. Because that's reasonably what would happen if you come off at that those high speed. Or very serious Injuries 30 and below. Edit: Sorry, I realised my phone cut out words. I'm meaning a biker on server, not IRL. Well I do own one but I don't go about popping fucking wheelies all day because I'm not a cretin.
  13. You're not getting my point. Watch the video you linked, see as he gets hit his body jumps from the blow, his motions become sluggish and her slumps forward, limping in. He isn't just 'Walking' like nothing happened. It takes him a second or two to recompose himself. Which is fine, he's on his feet and walking, he stumbles in and continues on. I'm not saying "BEANBAG FLOOR MAN HE OFF BIKE." I'm saying that if you had that happened to you and you turned into jello for a second or two going at speed, while your body instinctively tries to veer away from the threat, you're not going to be going to control it very well and more then likely be flung off.
  14. That's a man stood up, with a firm stance, taking the blows in a position where he is braced, not on a rickety crotch rocket that you're trying to navigate through being slammed with Less that Lethals. Yes he stays up, but watch the way his chest trembled and collapses, he loses most of his structure, even sending his legs trembling as it rolls through him. Now imagine that happening on a bike.
  15. "If I get hit by something designed to throw me to the floor or at the very least keel me over and wind me, will I be knocked off of a Motorbike?" I think the real question is asking if the guy is trained well enough TO HIT, but that's a different debate entirely.
