    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
  8. Edelweiss206

    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.
  9. Edelweiss206

    "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.

    Now imagine if we flipped this to what's below and the shitstorm you'd cause. Yikes. That's a no from me. I guess I'll just be Schitz.
  11. So I want to add some more. I've just gone through San Andreas Boulevard, Palomino Boulevard, Eclipse and Tinsel Towers with someone I decided to room mate with. These are arguably some of the most expensive apartments on the market, 200k, 240k, 300k, 325k. They're all the same apartment. In a 125k bracket, where the majority of available UCP buildings for high class homes are apartments. They are: All the Same apartment style. All 'Multi-Interior Interiors'. What I want to know is why? Why is their no deviation in the apartments and why offer the service to renovate when a huge chunk of them are illedgible for a reason that isn't publicized ANYWHERE? I dug into the refund requests and while hindsight is 20/20, a lot of the refunds are because of this bullshit. Why?
  12. So I didn't really know what to do with this. Since the discord states not to pester Admins and I wouldn't count this as emergency. Last night I made an Interior Request which was promptly denied, the reason given was simply what the title is: We do not change multi-interior interiors. Now I'd be fine with this if not for a few issues. I'm going to work off the assumption that Multi-Interior Interiors is to mean apartment complexes. Such as mine 'Ocean Walk - Floor X, Room X'. Taking this into account I can understand why you would want to keep all the apartments similar for thematic reasons. However I find it kind of redundant because we don't have access to all those apartment blocks. This isn't a solid building made up of 10, 20 apartments all looking the exact same that we can enter. They're each individually generated and loaded in, it wouldn't be possible to see these glaring differences, nor would it affect anyone. As well as this. There are certain buildings that are apartment / flat in nature. Such as a portion in Alta Street (I believe it's 205,206,207). That are stacked atop each other, and the only reason for having this numbering system is the doors you can enter from, which is through a stairwell at the front, however at the back of the building there is also what looks to be a main door, making it apartment style in nature. But because you decided to set it up as the main door uses the ladder way, they are now separate entities. My other complaint is the prevalence of the flat I'm trying to replace. ID6. Pushing aside my personal distaste for the building. I spent a day riding around different apartments and looking around. I found ID6 in use at Ginger Street for 85k, Sunshine Apartments for 100k, my own, ocean walk for 120k, next door are a set of far higher class apartments for 140k, and directly on the opposite side of what the UCP map currently shows for sale, 135k at Powerstreet. This leads me to assume that the apartment ID, 6. Is the default for any 'Middle Class Apartment / studio'. I don't understand the huge disparity of regions for this apartment to be so commonplace. I could understand it being used in some cheaper areas. But it's cramped, wholly impossible to renovate due to how finicky it's interior manager is. (Floating lamps, porno mags stuck to a wall, coffee table deleted, remotes floating above it, side doors to cabinets just gone, leaving a poorly rendered empty cupboard) and dosen't fit with an aesthetic in a lot of areas. Additional While Writing this up: I went and checked a building, the 111* Row of buildings at Palomino Avenue. This is for all intent and purpose a flat block. Would this count as 'Multi Interior Interiors?' it's an apartment block, surely it should fall under the same pretense as Ocean Walk, it's a multi-interior interior. Except I'm guessing it's classed otherwise because I can individually enter each room. I also checked inside, this is ID 11, the one I requested the change too. This is 150k, so only 10k more expensive then a building using ID 6, and for myself would only be 5k more to purchase than the combine building cost and renovation cost (120k+25k) However, this is still counted as Middle Class. As well as this. After looking through the main portions of the forum reference interior changes, which is mostly just the document to fill out, as well as the information stating the 3 Rules of changing your interior, there is No Mention what so ever of this in play. In fact the only stated forum rules are: No where is We do not change multi-interior interiors. Which is an issue. I followed these and applied, thinking it was fine. Anyone else making an application to change their appartment is likely to be met with the same comment and either shrug it off or just live with it. But I don't think that's fair. So for a TL;DR - Why can't I change my apartment interior?
