  2. @Shagglehod @ViscariaYasssss! Congrats! Congrats to all others as well!
  3. As a legal rper my response to people having alarms where normally irl they wouldn't is simple. It's an IC reaction to living in the most crime riddled city in the history of the world. No, as for the alarms going off 100% of the time, I do agree that if the proper development of the skills required to disarm the alarm is proven, and the alarm is disabled with proper roleplay, then yeah, I agree it should be possible to conduct a break in without the alarm going off.
  4. Robbery free areas/times. That would be an amazing first step. Give legal rpers places the can go that is outside where they don't have to fear like they are on the streets of an apocalyptic wastland city.
  5. If you need to actually write the rule that jetski's are banned for use in robberies, it really is time to start looking at the application process again, as it is not doing the job it is supposed to.
  6. This is all an elaborate joke right? Guys? People? The server really cannot have fallen into that poor a level of RP can it? Also, fun fact of the day, it's technically not piracy as for it to count as piracy the act of taking over the vessel without permission has to occur in international waters. Therefore, if this is a legit thing that is happening, then they are committing nothing more than GTA, albeit in an incredibly stupid and unrealistic way.
  7. And thus a thread that could actually shed some light onto the real issues in the server devolves into pointless jabs that will see the thread locked archived and never looked into by the admins. But yeah, people don't want to RP outside? There is little point. Any meaningful or decent RP will usually be snuffed out by the imminent line of "Gangbanger shouts: HANDS!".
  8. "standbar" could work nicely I think
  9. Unfortunately, I also have to agree with this statement. There are so many places that could be hubs for nice chill RP. Take the beach for example. No one goes to what is really one of the busiest beaches in the world because in all likelyhood, someone would run up all dressed in black with a pump shotgun in order to rob you of anything you have on you. (Yes, this actually happened.)
  10. I think the issue the rule is trying to fight is that, what if you had been kidnapped and were trying to send a location to your friend to help? The kidnapper has no way to stop you if you just send the command and let then see the /me. I'd say the rule is there to stop powergaming. I'd be amazed if any admin punished someone for using the command in a situation that didn't require clarity on whether the person would be able to do it (simply sat in a car under no threat for example.)
  11. Username: Alykat Comment: Dennis, while you might have been a slimeball piece of shit who didn't know how to treat a woman, you had your moments of kindness. You didn't deserve this. Rest in peace. **IP would trace back to Anchorage, Alaska.**
  12. Personally, while I disagree somewhat with the reasoning for this suggestion, I do think it is right in part. I don't think people should be forced to put in things like "Has gang tattoos showing affiliation to X Gang" but I do agree that some description of the tattoos should be there. This way if people know the gangs, they might be able to figure it out. I also agree with Wuhtah however. While I do think that some people simply don't put the effort into their attributes. I think that many may just misunderstand what is required and need more guidance and not punishment. Perhaps a part of the attributes page should be a list of dos and don'ts.
  13. The problem is the realism of it. There is a lot of stuff you need to think about that simply could not be represented in game. Realistically, it is a very poor way to scam. You are using a most likely, monitored, publicly accessable advertisement system. Meaning that once ads were made, it would likely be pretty damn easy to discover who made the ad. And therefore very easy to track down the scammer. I think it would fall under RPQM and poor portrayal. As for using an unlocked HQ you find, that's just idiotic really. People really should be able see why that is terrible RP.
  14. Username: Alykat Comment: I have to ask. Do you suck off as many SD as you can so they will pay for your news channel? Or so they will help you cover up all that shady crap you get up to with women? Please, SD detectives couldn't find water if they fell out of a boat.
  15. Username: Alykat Comment: Sheriffs: Due to our tireless efforts we located him. Sidwell: My goodness. How on earth did you find him? Sheriffs: We were sat on our ass watching TV and he came on your show. Fuck me sideways, they got some serious detectives working over at the LSSD. I'm sure no one else, not even Sherlock Holmes could have figured that one out.
  16. Username: Alykat Comment: Jeeze Dennis why don't you just get on your knees and blow him for his money like you make your workers do for you. It'll save you some time and the public embarrassment of these articles. I'd so love to see this "research" you did that says people trust the LSSD. Because jesus fuck I have met some people who fear them more than the gangs on the streets of LS.
  17. Username: AlyTate Comment: Interesting to see that LSNN are still on the SD payroll. Sidwell always did did have his nose shoved firmly up the Sheriff's ass.
  18. I hope you enjoyed that burger! Was a funny as hell scene though made for some hilarious RP.
  19. That right there is what this is for. I think I may have been able to explain this a little better. This suggestion isn't really to allow full roleplay to be taking place in other games. (Although that could be a very out there possibility). The intention of the idea is to allow people who wish to express more in depth about their roleplay stories by using images from these games in their threads. The only thing I would say about taking it deeper into the RP is allowing players to talk about that mission they were on together that is something they actually played through in another game. Rules would be there simply to make sure this wasn't "remember that time we were in the SAS and saved the world." but more about realistic taskings. The primary focus of this suggestion is to provide a solid ruling on what screens players may use to express and deepen their stories whether t be a character thread, faction thread, or simply a facebrowser post. Thanks for the comment, hope this helps give a better idea of what I am suggesting.
  20. Thanks for the reply and the support in your first sentence there. I completely agree with you that there is a real potential for how unrealistic events could be portrayed in with this. Out of interest, would you have any suggestions to add to or to edit this idea that could help to mitigate that? Same to you as well, thanks for your comment on the spirit of the idea. I can certainly see where you are coming from on the things that are already posted under this sort of idea. That would be what this rule is there to regulate. To add a clear guideline on what games are allowed to be used and what is allowed to be done in said games. Would you have any suggestions or any hypothetical examples of rules that could maybe be used whether they be for Menyoo or for the other games as mentioned?
  21. Again, you have misunderstood the suggestion here. Please read what this suggestion is. People talking about the games they have played is already allowed ICly.
  22. That is literally the point of this suggestion. It is a suggestion to provide a rule to regulate this sort of thing so that in cannot be used in any sort of metagaming way. The idea is not to roleplay as a character from a game. It is to use that other platform to play as your character to facilitate your RP. To put it simply, No, you cannot play as agent 47 in hitman and then say you are a hitman in GTAW. But yes, you could play as a snowboarder in the game Steep and portray this in game as your memories of a trip to the alps. (This was the situation that was actually approved.) This is a complete misunderstanding of the rule I am trying to suggest here. Please try and understand that I am not suggesting people roleplay as characters already established in other games. Any game where you play as a specific character with a story would simply not be allowed under this rule.
  23. As a premise for this, I'm also looking to gauge people interest in a rule like this. And if you have a meaningful suggestion to add to this, something I haven't thought of maybe, throw it in. Please keep the thread clean though. I know how this sort of thing could get some people a bit irked. Short description: Add a rule that allows and regulates the use of other games to facilitate roleplay. Detailed description: What I am suggesting here is as the title suggests, allowing other games to be used and taken IC to a certain level. Allow screens and footage from these games to be used in character stories, on facebrowser, in faction threads, or wherever else they might be used. The rule would be in place to actively give players a solid understanding of what they would be allowed to use ICly and what would be off limits or considered unrealistic. Example: A while back, myself and some friends approached an admin in charge of facebrowser about using screens from the Ubisoft game Steep as photos from an IC group trip to the alps. We were approved for this, but obviously we needed to keep it realistic. So we had our own set of rules in place of what we could and couldn't use ICly. In the game, you can literally use rocket wing suits as they were part of a DLC. Now while they are fun as hell, those things are, in reality, rare as hell and exceedingly expensive, so they were off limits. Another thing that was off limits was some of the unrealistic riding that was possible on snowboards, skis and the like such as monumental jumps from cliffs. I believe that this rule could extend to a large number of games with all sorts of potential RP that could come from them. An example of how this could help people could be a recent report against a few players who were racing "Rally" cars around the mountains. It was mentioned in the report that these cars are usually used on a closed track, which they also admitted was very hard in GTAW. What if these players were allowed to actually take a game like Dirt Rally ICly as a smaller, amateur event that they had to travel out of state to go and take part in. Of course, a rule to add to that game would be that competitions against AI drivers could only be taken as small time non impactful events. We can't have 37 World Rally Champions running around LS, it's just not realistic. But putting up footage from your small time race up in another state on facebrowser, I can't see too much of an issue with that. Take Minecraft for example, I know of a group of players who have a Minecraft server that they take ICly. What I mean by this, is that they play the game together, and take it ICly as it is their characters playing the game. I think this is a really neat little way to add some flavour to the roleplay within certain groups. How about Arma or Squad? Hear me out here, what if a person wanted to play a military character? Perhaps they could be deployed to the islands of Altis and Stratis and might come back with a few war stories that would affect the development of that character. Maybe they could not play the character on GTAW while they were deployed overseas. Perhaps multiplayer PvE situations could be used so that these players have real war buddies that they can go and drink their troubles away with at their local drinking establishment while they remember their times abroad. I'd suggest making a dynamic list of games that all players had permission to use ICly without need for further approval. This would simply include what games are allowed to be taken ICly, and what the specific rules are for those games. Example: How would your suggestion improve the server? I believe that this rule would have a number of effects on the server. Firstly, it would allow for people to deepen their own RP in certain areas they choose to enjoy. Characters who do not have current in GTAW means to reach their full potential would be given a new lease of life and be able to far more in depth as to what they would be doing both in the state of San Andreas and further afield. I also believe that this would mitigate certain situations where characters are caught in bad ways while trying to do what their character does. Additional information: This will be a dynamic post, I will edit with further suggestions about the rule and make changes where they are needed. Please feel free to add your own ideas on this rule and make suggestions about where my idea could be improved. I'm always open to make changes to my idea.
