  2. The only active trucking company I see nowadays is IMEX. I believe the main problem is that garages require a lot of components and they are located close to the Terminal. Regular businesses usually request 200 crates on average while garages request 10,000+ and that number goes up extremely fast too. Truckers can focus on those garages only and they won't ever run out of work while other businesses are left unattended. One way to solve this is to increase the capacity of the trucks. Currently Speedo holds 5 crates, change it to 7, Boxville from 8 to 10, Mule from 12 to 15, Benson from 15 to 20, Pounder from 20 to 30. That way truckers will have a legitimate chance to keep up with the amount of components garages spend and then focus on other businesses too.

  5. Also, I'd remove the 20 hours limit for new chars if the account has more than that on another character because it does not make sense if an experienced player wants to start trucking on a new char for the purpose of RP.

  6. People don't want to grind for money anymore. New players can tolerate it but it gets boring for most people really fast. They do it because it's a fast way to grind your way to a mirror park house and an elegy. There are companies out there that are really fun to be a part of but the trucking job itself needs an overhaul imo. I dont blame truckers for rushing through intersections and speeding wherever they go to get their deliveries done. Having done a delivery job myself irl it's perfectly normal for that to happen. I only quit as I found myself learning a bad and unsafe way of driving. Maybe the server needs a different system than we have now. Get paid for the time you spend doing deliveries rather than the amount of deliveries you do. Maybe that way truckers won't be rushing all over the map anymore.

  7. Name: David Lee Alias(es): Delly Occupation: Fraudster, Match-Fixer, Gambling Syndicate Ringleader Status: Currently incarcerated in Los Santos Federal Prison and serving a 6-year sentence for money laundering and forgery charges. DOB/AGE: 09/23/XXXX — 34 years old Street Background Information The crooked tennis players knew him as “Delly." To federal investigators, the Korean-American based in Little Seoul is known as the alleged ringleader of an organized gambling syndicate suspected of fixing hundreds of tennis matches and paying off more than 100 players across Los Santos. The picture emerging from months of digging by police working across Los Santos is of a massive match-fixing scheme, organized via encrypted messaging, involving dozens of low-ranked players in small tournaments with little prize money. Police say David Lee employed mules, people hired for a few dollars to place bets for the syndicate that were small enough to slip under the radar of gambling watchdogs. In all, more than 100 players are suspected of having worked with the syndicate, fixing matches, sets or games in exchange for payments of $250 to $2,000. On September 10th, 2020, David Lee was found guilty on all charges during trial and was additionally ordered to pay an $80.000 fine by the judge who condemned him to a 6-year long prison sentence. He was sent to Los Santos Federal Prison where he remains incarcerated to this day. Name: Joseph Lee Alias(es): Joey Occupation/Status: Pico Union High School Senior DOB/AGE: 10/24/XXXX — 17 years old Street Background Information Joseph was born and raised between the Little Seoul and Pico Union sections of Los Santos. He is a senior at P.U High School and is often seen hanging out with Mexican gang members in the Pico Union district where his grandmother lives. On May 30th a video was uploaded on Instagram by a female student from Pico High. The video shows Joseph exchanging blows with a Mexican high schooler and winning the fight after dropping his opponent to the ground and repeatedly pouncing on him. Joseph is a repeat juvenile offender who has been arrested a total of four times for crimes such as bike theft, possession of an illegal substance with intent to distribute, shoplifting and fencing. He is the cousin of a reputed Korean-American gangster David "Delly" Lee, who is currently incarcerated in federal prison for his role in an organized gambling syndicate suspected of fixing hundreds of tennis matches across small tournaments in Los Santos.

  8. It's very realistic that there is a driver shortage on the server as well as in real life. Best RP.

  9. History The Hoover Criminals are allies of all Hoover sub sets. Their main ally outside of the Hoover Criminals, were the Main Street Mafia Crips. This alliance came to an abrupt end when an alleged confrontation between the two groups lead to a shoot-out outside the residence. Although in their formative years, they were known as Hoover Crips; by the 90s they renounced their Crip title - instead replacing this with Criminals. Likely as a result of a feud, they began to claim "EBK" (Everybody Killer) which comprised of "BK" (Blood Killer) as well as "CK" (Crip Killer) and "0K" (Rollin 0's). This EBK model can be compared to the tax-free Mexican American street gangs. Most Hispanic gangs in South Los Santos ally with the Mexican Mafia. The decision to wage an all out war against surrounding Bloods and Crips, as well as Hispanic gangs essentially severed alliances with any other gang. 59 Hoover Criminals Gang The 59 Hoover Criminals Gang (59 HCG) also known as the 5-Nine Hoover Criminals Gang and formerly known as the 59 Hoover Crips Gang, are an African-American street gang located on the East side of South Los Santos, San Andreas. The 5-Nine Hoover Criminals originated in the 1970's, as a sub-set of the larger Hoover Criminals Gang. The 59 Hoover Criminals Gang, often replace the two O's in Hoover with an "X" due to a long-standing feud with all Crip sets under the Rolling card. It's common to see H59ver in wall graffiti and various other vandalized property throughout their territory - which spans through Rancho, beginning at Roy Lowenstein Boulevard, continuing through to Innocence Boulevard. They have been known to sport apparel related to the Houston Astros baseball team, with the "H" in Houston Astros used as a sort of insignia for the group. The usage of orange as their identifying color was also inspired by the famous team. Activity On Monday, January 21th 2021, the Los Santos Police Chief reported an alarming surge of violent crime on the East side of South Los Santos, synonymous with a trend of increasing crime across the city. The statistics show that their were 59 shooting victims within the first three weeks of the 2021, compared to seven in the same time last year. The chief tweeted that "Local officers made over two dozen arrests, with 90 firearms being taken off the streets. Gang intervention is doing it's best - but we urgently the support of our elected officials and community." This led to an increase in police presence in the area; with the intent of suffocating gang activity. A dedicated gang unit has been in deployment for some time, working alongside institutions like R.A.C.E (Reclaiming America's Communities Through Empowerment), gang intervention workers, city officials and local businesses to stop gang conflicts and improve relations. Unfortunately, economic stresses, distrust between law enforcement and the community with the rise of controversial police shootings, social media and drugs are all contributing factors that gang intervention workers have highlighted when speaking about the heightened tensions. This problem is indeed complex and intertwined with the city's history, seemingly unlikely to be resolved quickly. 20 ARRESTED DURING MULTI-AGENCY GANG SWEEP IN RANCHO STEMMING FROM FEDERAL INDICTMENTS Monday, June 1st, 2020 A joint operation conducted by the FBI and local law enforcement officials has led to the arrest of 20 people who say they were connected to a street gang in the Rancho area. Those arrested on Tuesday are suspected members of a gang named in federal grand jury indictments, alleging the manufacture and sale of crack cocaine in and around the Pico Park in Rancho. Four were still being sought out. Officials claim the operation took months to coordinate but it deals a serious blow to the gang plaguing that area. As per the U.S Attorney's office, the suspects are charged in nine federal indictments filed in L.A. that allege violations of federal narcotics and firearms laws. The operation, dubbed "Allegiance Matters," involved some 350 federal agents, LSPD officers and L.S. County sheriff's deputies. The arrests were processed at the Roy Lowenstein parking lot in Rancho. During the investigation, authorities allegedly seized 35 firearms -- including five "ghost guns," or firearms lacking serial numbers -- over two pounds of crack and 12 pounds of cocaine, according to prosecutors. The primary indictment centers on Jarquez "Batman" Upchurch, 43, and Yonatan "Click-Clack" Jaimes, 39, both documented Hoover-based gang members, according to prosecutors. The 15-count indictment also charges Upchurch's alleged network of narcotics suppliers, manufacturers and distributors. From April 2019 to last July, Jaimes obtained powder cocaine from suppliers and, along with Upchurch, manufactured or "cooked" crack in Rancho, then prepared and packaged the drug for other distributors and customers in the housing complex, according to the indictment. The conspirators allegedly collected monies from the crack cocaine sales after distributing the drugs to customers via hand-to-hand transactions.
