  2. oh hey a necro'd thread: tl;dr the below is no longer my opinion nor do I currently agree with my old opinion. CK apps rn are pretty heavily vetted and not a kangaroo court, which is nice.

  3. Short description: A starter job that is an office environment, as an alternative to the blue-collar starter jobs currently available. Detailed description: At the moment, most "starter" jobs for new players and those in need of immediate work, are blue-collar positions such as the gas station and trash collecting, whereas slightly more difficult application-joined businesses are almost routinely at bars, garages, pawn shops, and trucking companies. I have yet to see a white-collar job opportunity that best simulates working in an office environment without requiring significant legal experience or some preestablished association to existing offices (of which I have found none). So, in the interests of having an office somewhere, I am suggesting a starter office job be created. It will use the FIB office suite, as a single location in which people show up, /startshift, and roleplay just about anything they feel they would be best in an office environment. File TPS reports, research statistics, shoot the breeze at the water cooler, complain in the break room about getting egg salad again, dick around in a cubicle, schedule staff meetings that totally should have been an email instead, find that one printer, drive it out to an empty field and smash it to pieces.... But most important of all, roleplay. Being a single easy-access job means people can tack on another entirely new environment in which to meet friends and socialize - at the office. It has the possibility of becoming a hub in which roleplayers can meet, civilian jobs can happen with actual interactions (as being one location means a steady flow of people, whereas with 24/7 it is spread all over San Andreas), and roleplay can thrive. The job is to have fun roleplaying in an office environment, and I honestly believe it can work. Commands to add: None Items to add: Literally nothing at all How would your suggestion improve the server? It would fill a very large civilian roleplay experience gap, and it would serve as a core meeting ground for roleplayers to meet and connect. Plus,it would encourage more office-work type characters, which we have so few of today as it is. Additional information: This suggestion is likely to not be well received by some, as there are a few that have insisted this should be a job that fills some niche in the server with actual work scripts. I do not agree with that position, but I do still believe this can help the server, so whether it is approved here or not, it will happen in some form. Already I am looking into simply creating the business via IC means and paying into it funds accrued via IC endeavors. No personal profit is planned from this, and the aim will still be to add an easy-access roleplay office environment for those that want it. This suggestion is moreso an attempt to set it up so that it does not simply dissolve overnight if I am struck by a car and reduced to a road waffle while heading home from work. Post-suggestion Notes - Pay increase per person present (Kappaurel) Employees are paid more depending on how many are present and /startshift'd, to encourage more people being present and interacting. - A theme is needed (Winged) It cannot just be "a business" without having focus. Determine what the office deals with, so that there's actual direction and theme, as opposed to being just a generic do-everything company/corporation. - Theme and payment (orca112) The business theme could possibly be government employee, lower-tier infrastructure accounting. Payment can also be further made to encourage interaction by increasing pay proportionate to the total roleplay of all /startshift'd employees. - Helping other businesses (Chuck Lee) This proposed office job can also serve as a centralized source through which other office-oriented businesses can find and employ staff for more specialized jobs. New players would be able to better make connections with existing companies, corporations, and businesses that they would have otherwise never known about. - Helping other businesses financially (knpple) Assuming some profit is made off of the business, said profit can be accumulated and utilized as a support fund for other office jobs that may be struggling. - Employment center office jobs (mj2002) This office job could be a component to further enhance the job center of the server. People working in this office would have some work by seeking out and maintaining contact with businesses in need of people.

  8. See you say that, and I used to say that as well until I was on a receiving end of it. Got CKed by a guy who's app was literally the denied revenge fantasy example given in the CK rules. Took them almost three weeks to even look at the appeal and then told me that because three weeks had passed and RP had happened, it was denied. It took 40 days and a staff report on the admin who handled it to get the CK appealed, and they didn't finish it on their own. They only unCKed my character after we PMed the team telling them that they've taken way to long and I'm just going to move on to another character. Only then did we almost immediately get a response saying the app shouldn't have been accepted so it would be appealed. Oh, now 60 days later they still haven't handled the report on the players who broke a dozen server rules on their way to CK me and members of my faction. The system works great, if everyone does their part and is being honest. But in my situation, not only did the original admin just not care. They straight up lied to cover their ass and said that IFM had voted on the app as a committee when in fact we had testimony from every other member of IFM saying that they either had no idea the app had been accepted OR that said admin wanted to handle it by themselves. So no wonder CK's seem to be such a cluster fuck when their treated like an after thought. There was always a reason they couldn't look at the app. First it was the normal "Staff is very busy and this could take some time" to a few weeks later "Oh well it's a holiday but I promise you'll it'll be handled once we're back from break". Then it was "Oh well we had to handle this situation in PD". Then finally they said "Hey, it's unacceptable that it's taken this long, I'm almost finished with looking into, I just need to talk to a few more people but if I can't reach them by this weekend you'll have your answer" Did we get an answer that weekend? Absolutely not. CK's are a very very final and serious system and their appeals should be treated as the most important thing an admins responsible for. One bad CK can lead to an entire faction losing the motivation to play or disrupts roleplay to the point where it's unenjoyable for said faction. CK appeals should be handled in a matter of days not weeks and definitely not a fucking month. If that's the way the admin team wants to treat CK's, then get rid of the system all together because it's very clear that nobody really cares to manage the system and make sure it run smoothly.

  10. Short description: Choose vehicle 'Extras' when buying from dealership Detailed description: When buying a vehicle new from the dealership, you are met with a plethora of manufacturer options to choose from. While not entirely reflected in GTA 5, the vehicle extras script does somewhat provide this in a way. From things like grille options to interior cupholders. Roofs up to roofs down. Small taxi roof signs to large taxi advertisement signs. All very little things that can be changed on a car. This should be something we can change at the dealership when buying new. Commands to add: Allow for an option, like when choosing your cars color. A box that opens the vehicle extras menu. Items to add: Vehicle extras at dealership purchase screen How would your suggestion improve the server? Provides a little more authentic personalization and customization when buying from a dealership. Drive some additional appeal into buying from the dealership compared to the used market.

  11. Short description: Spawn vehicles in their parked place from Business Garage Detailed description: After server crash or restart in the mornings, as a trucking company we routinely find ourselves spawning in our trucks and parking them in an orderly fashion. When you've got a fair few trucks to spawn in, this process can take a while especially if there's only one person to do it. At the moment, when a business vehicle spawns in - it spawns in at it's last location, then immediately teleports to you. What i'm proposing is that we add an additional button alongside the green button in the garage menu below, so that when we spawn in the trucks we can leave them in their original parked positions. This may have it's downsides to some people, because some vehicles may not be used for some time, and it may spawn on top of another, etc - However I think for us it would provide us the advantage of knowing our vehicles are parked in and save us the 10-15 minutes a day it takes to spawn them! Of course, if a vehicle has been parked in the garage, then grey this icon out perhaps? (If possible, or use the last stored location before it was parked?) Commands to add: Proposed solution: Items to add: N/A How would your suggestion improve the server? Save business users time after server restarts and crashes when it comes to reparking vehicles.

  12. It's great there are suggestions popping up for the white-collar legal side, always nice to see. Is there a reason to have this as anything but a faction, though? Most of what you described is already being accomplished by a few corporate legal factions on the server. That also allows the people RPing in the office to be focused around a certain topic. I fear that if people are allowed to RP whatever they choose that loosely fits office RP, the RP could become questionable fairly quickly. I'd personally like to see more white-collar legal factions delivering this type of RP experience to players. Of course this is just my opinion, I'd love to hear what your take on that is.

  13. Why would that be the case? I want to play the game in peace. I don't want to be one of those guys who have one finger ready on the Screenshot keybind and the other one on the record keybind. I find playing the game more amusing than filing reports, that is it basically. Improve my quality of life in the game. But if you think that I'm not entitled to complain about it or say my piece as why I do what I do, then I'll probably just shut up already.

  18. Can we get some sit smoking and sitting while on our phones animations? Why every time we wanna roleplay smoking and sitting down it automatically makes us stand up which lowkey kills the roleplay. Same thing with being on the phone, we gotta stand up to be on our phone. I would love it if we could be on our phones/smoking while sitting down.
