Well, seems like everybody took this thread too seriously.
The point the OP was trying to make is that construction companies would be a great addition to the server or more so normalized.
Some of the best mappers on the server did just this (that being Tiddy and Y3) out of their own volition. Mind you, same people involved in big mapping projects such as The Richman Motel and Pillbox Medical. The problem is most people don’t do this. They arrange these projects by OOC means and complete them through OOC means as well.
Yes, it’s dumb to rp /me throws plaster on the walls and lifts up a bed when your character is a 4’11 white woman but the reason why these are brought up is because truckers and yes…. MECHANICS are held to a standard regarding these.
The argument of “well it’s in a different dimension than the public” doesn’t make much sense in the context of garages that sometimes have a private area for work to commence. Mechanics and Mappers go hand and hand of how their work is under appreciated yet if they weren’t around people would cry out.
It’s not a problem when you tell a mechanic to rush out his work but it’s a problem when you ask for rp out of a mapper, that is the point the OC is trying to make. Some people might already do that, that’s good but the point is that it should be normalized.
If you think this thread is discrediting mappers, I’ll give you a step by step process. Stand up from your desk, walk outside, place your palm out, then make sure all of your hand collides with the grass.
