  1. I'll just say as someone who has been in serious roleplays across a lot of different games (Arma, Gmod etc.) this is one of the most OOC based roleplay servers I have ever been in, despite this server's weird obsession with witchhunting people for "bad roleplay" and "dealing out of character" almost the entirety of the server is based on OOC cliques / connections and deals. The elephant in the room no one wants to talk about is that this romanticized ideal of going into a bar, having a drink with a guy, and then through conversation buying illegal items or joining some gang or organization is completely bullshit. First of all, if you even ATTEMPT to discuss illegal activity, despite your character being brazenly a criminal themselves, you will almost always get told to fuck off by people UNLESS you join their discord and give them CK permissions. It's only then you're treated as one of the various "locals" or "associates" and you essentially have to follow what is most likely a group of OOC Discord Play-To-Winners around, as usually one of them is a supplier. I find it comical that a server that tries to work so hard on its roleplay basis obtaining guns and drugs through an OOC process, which usually results in an OOC clique going around and picking on people attempting to join their faction because they applied for a role OOCly. Sure, there's the exception here and there, I have bought some drugs on some characters in the past, but the majority response to you attempting to roleplay is a prompt Ay cuh bro blud run yo pockets hur dur. Driving around I don't see roleplay. I see cops and robbers, and the fact there's really 0 ways to legally earn money as a citizen goes to show. There's also no crimes to be committed except drugs and selling guns, so it's obvious the only thing crims will be interested in is murder. but thats just my perspective as a noob of 6 or 7 months now.

  2. Businesses It seems extremely counter intuitive that business owners, who are essentially Creators of events / roleplay for their many customers (who then get RP fed to them), are the ones who have to pay to advertise it. Mapping The same is true for mappers - People who create some of the nicest interiors the server has to offer have had to pay for the privilege to do so - Imagine how many developers we would have if the dev team was told it had to pay to add a new feature to the game. If anything, both the above people should be rewarded - it just feels odd the status quo is that they are having to pay to do the server, a service.

  3. PRESTIGE GLOBAL NETWORK STATEMENT REGARDING BOMB THREAT INCIDENT On January 11th, at approximately 7:30p. Both the Police & Sheriff's Department responded to a bomb threat call located at Autopia Parkway, where Prestige Wine Gallery is located. During the initial approach, all civilians and staff were asked to clear the building, which was immediately done, with everyone complying. I must say that I am appalled with the incident that happened yesterday at our Wine bar & Art Gallery. The wine bar is located within the area close to LSX, an incident like this, is tragic. Due to the fantastic work from our government agencies, those responsible for this tragedy is now serving time, as anyone involved in such an incident should be. After co-operation with our law enforcement agencies, we were able to find out who was the person was and confirmed it being a hoax. Needless to say that everyone in our venue went through a big psychological shock, due to the incident, and in name of our Company, I would like to publicly apologize to everyone that was present at the incident. I would also like to thank our government agencies for the outstanding work they had done, I believe that our city can't be in better hands than with those heroes. Specially to Los Santos Police Department, Lieutenant Kavanagh and Sheriff's Department, Detective Vaughan who helped closely by solving the investigation at the scene and liaising with myself and my staff. Ashley JA Hendricks, Chief Executive Officer, Prestige Global Network. COMMENTS MODERATED. All of the current media inquires may be directed to our Chief Communications Officer, Daniel Yoshimuri.

  8. The thread above already contains plenty of reasons, but this is also a pointless change. The problem is not really minor characters, but the players behind some of them. You can combat a bunch of symptoms all you like, but if the underlying problems are not addressed, they will just appear somewhere else.

  9. Kind of have to agree here. It's unfair. We suspend our disbelief to see 'hourglass' or 'bulky SD deputy with tightly fit uniform' or 'actually not a 6'0 tall female', so it shouldn't be too difficult to imagine a checkered shirt is probably a different jersey. Admittedly however it is hilarious, especially from a cop perspective, to be chasing people who resemble amputees in checkered shirts like it's a new species of human going around. So for these reasons, and others, it gets memed and the roleplay quality of these interactions tanks on two sides overall. The problem here is that it is hard for people discern color or representation of these items when the examine range is so short, or provide a distinctive and proper report on someone who looks like that. While you seem to have an understanding of the dilemma, there are maybe two dozen more who won't play ball here, or who will exploit this. It's unfortunate. Hopefully your roleplay will attract a better kind of roleplay to you, but I would honestly suggest making a thread to see some of these mods make it server-side so our options from hair to clothing are more diverse and inclusive. I do not see the modding team disagreeing with those additions considering we have about 83 dresses that barely cover the ass and chest and hairstyles that are more fitting for a Teletubby than human being.

  10. imo there's too many chars around that jsut don't make sense from a realistic pov, given the fact this should be a high standards roleplay server it's kinda embarrassing seeing barely no difference between the characters that are portrayed here. from the lesbian depressed PF license having pink sportscar driving stripper/escort/bartender/store clerk with 3 houses, 6 cars, cat ears and their "hourglass shaped body" up to the 15 y/o mass murdering savage ass all too active fearless gang char who's down to blockwipe his opps the first day he hops off the porch. many cop chars feel too robotic, making most police interactions quite unpleasant even tho i really enjoy a nice encounter with cops, i'm even down to take huge L's icly but when it comes to the point where i have 7 units on my ass just cause my window tint turns out to be darker than allowed it just kills it for me tbh. this server is divided between "mallrats" and "hoodrats", there's not much in between and both sides seem to try their best to not interact with the other. "hoodrats" associate most non-gang chars with what we know as "mallrats" same as "mallrats" associate urban chars with "hoodrats" almost instantly. me as someone who uses dlcmods (simply cause the vanilla clothing is fucking garbage cause it makes you look like u bought ur clothes at the dollar store back in 2008) notices how i pretty much get denied at any place outside the ghetto cause they instantly associate me with people who chain rob civilians with piss poor rp. i get that seeing a character with a checkered shirt and clipping torso can be annoying as well but people seriously have the audacity to use their ooc right to take this shit ic'ly and roast my character cause of how he looks on their screen when they know that my character just looks like this cause of mods. in a server where i have to rp someone being a 6'3" muscular badass or some girl to be the baddest hourglass shaped female just cause they put it into their /attributes i dont see the issue to just let someone be who decides to use clothing mods, instead i'm being clowned. it's hard to respond to that shit icly too cause i just have to accept people roasting me icly for the things they see cause i'm using mods after all. i also dont see how that shit helps them to immerse themselves into a situation even more when straight up taking some goofy outfit icly. its sort of the same as if i'd be walking around roleplaying everyone has the same tattoos, same height and same the same weight instead of roleplaying how their character is described in /attributes. it's just retarded. it's too much porn influence on here, if you check the ads most of the things u see is that yet another strip club hires dancers, an escort offers her/his services or how someone advertises their new porn with the grey haired thicc goddess as the main act. of course in a city that resembles L.A things like this realistically should exist, but it's just too much. the erp culture got out of control, this server feels more like a cops and robbers or a sex simulator than anything else. my facebrowser newsfeed is flooded with menyoo pics of half naked overly thick characters who only post about sexual content. also correct me if i'm wrong but from what i'm seeing it just seems like staff aims their focus mainly on law enforcement in terms of updates or w/e, giving the "regular player" little to no attention. of course law enforcement rp does need it's improvements as well but what about the rest of the players? just look at the piece of shit clothing we have. you're totally fucked if you're portraying a male hood character cause it already fails by trying to give your character a time appropriate outfit hence why people use dlc mods in the first place. same goes for female characters, yes you can make decent outfits and it's not as bad as with the male chars but besides those erp "mallrat" dresses there barely is anything u see a female irl would wear, especially in a city that resembles los angeles. male afro american characters have a very limited option on hairstyles and the tattoos just look like shit. i was shocked when i took out my mods just to check how i look on other peoples screen, i instantly made my characters more vanilla friendly. of course this server isn't all bad and theres lots of cool people on here who rp good as well and i enjoy playing here, it's just that those things i've listed above sort of kill my motivation sometimes cause it just gets tiring, especially cause it's fixable issues. but if u address these issues like i did rn people just get triggered cause they find themselves in what i've written above. but instead of thinking about what i said, people rather play the hopeless victim which also is another problem. now i feel weird cause of how much i wrote, but as someone who's barely saying anything i just had to let it out. in times like these i also have to address that i'm not trying to offend anyone, i'm just pointing out what i think goes wrong on this server and just cause it's my oppinion it doesn't mean that those problems are as deep as i feel like they are.
