  1. The voiding of IRL issues is getting annoying. I don't even understand why we voided the Ukraine war. There's probably a 90% consensus on that subject. That being said, people clearly aren't mature enough to handle polarizing topics and will likely inject their passionate OOC views into their RP. Void it, not because it's an uncomfortable subject, but to spare us the retarded drivel of what is essentially OOC politics.
  2. You can't always offer maximum interaction. When you open a garage after a drought, which was the case through much of last year, you get SWAMPED. When you have eight cars waiting, you simply can't walk up to each one, wait for them to reply if they alt tabbed, then exchange your RP lines. That's on top of juggling all the orders, verifying what people actually ordered ("yeah just tint and wheels" when they ordered 8 things), then actually trying to RP all the mods as well. More mechanics isn't the solution either. Three people on shift makes it pointless money-wise, even more so after the components nerf. Plus, you can't just pull (good) mechanics out of thin air. A /createscene for a stack of catalogs or these other adaptations just streamline the process. A lot of people view it as a chore or are spoiled by shitter garages, which I can't blame them for, so you don't want to make it tedious for them either. Mechanic RP is mostly redundant and not social, so the interactions are what make it. It's just not always feasible. These garages aren't necessarily lazy, the system is just imperfect.
  3. I haven't personally dealt with much shit criminal roleplay in a long time. It peaked for me earlier in 2021. However, the server does absolutely tilt in a cops/robbers direction from what I've seen. There's constant LEO updates, yet we can't so much as get a working group chat. We can't get a working wheelchair (for the 2nd time). Hell, people bought $15/mo dogs when the update was announced, and the update was pulled. Cops don't seem to give a shit about boring scenes. I've seen cops drive past dumbass drivers and people drifting several times. As much as I hate the traffic laws, the high expectations of driving in an empty city, robocops that play cat and mouse with racers (two sides of the same coin imo), etc., traffic enforcement seems to be nonexistent in 2021. Might just be me but I'm actually struggling to get a ticket this year, and I don't give a fuck about how I drive, other than checking intersections so I don't get t-boned. Recently, I heard of 3 cop cars driving past a car flipped over from a crash in Alta, something that's HARD to miss, while no FD is online. I've seen LEOs tend to scenes only to leave dead bodies, weapons/casings, or blood spots. That might be because no coroners or even FD are around, but that's the problem. That shit is boring compared to getting into gunfights with carbines. BF400 robberies got banned so now I guess the new meta is burglaries, because someone actually put forth the idea of 500k house alarms to make them easier for criminals. Why? For the sole purpose of getting guns. Swiping them from legal holders is the easiest way because there's a steady supply, and everyone has them, ironically because criminals are such a problem. I'm sure you've seen the recent report where a mapper nicked a stockpile of PF guns like he was ever going to get away with it. People get punished for looting and metagaming gun drops constantly. Why are guns that much of a commodity that many people seem to be willing to risk any punishment for them? You can't tell me there's a lack of them, the sheer quantity of gun crime says the complete opposite. All I can deduce is that there's a lot of shit criminal roleplayers that constantly get into shootouts, and that's likely all that they do. This could all be the result of people getting bored and the server losing steam as COVID ends. Creative efforts get dropped and it devolves into basic gameplay. It is what it is, but it doesn't make for a fun game mode when doing anything cool on this server already required jumping through hoops, writing applications, meeting seemingly arbitrary portrayal standards, and possibly even clearing IC regulations. To top it off, these applications are fucking closed half the time. That leaves us with a stale interior-based dating sim.
  4. I sympathize with this. Considering you have to (I would imagine) plan out a burglary and then wait for an admin, it's not fair if you don't even get a chance. That being said, this idea is WAY out in the other direction. To start, you can't pull the "in real life" card because it's never an apples to apples comparison. Crime is nowhere near as prevalent in any civilized city as it is in our Los Santos. You need to pay IRL money (consistently) to have a fucking camera outside your house which is sooo easy to get in real life. Window guards, which are commonplace in any big city, aren't possible on the server. None of this compares to real life, which is fine, but you have to recognize that. House alarms aren't even hard to acquire in real life. Nerf them if you want. Instill false positives, make them less effective, let IFM disable them, add that alarm notice. That's all good. 80k for 50% effectiveness, 160k for 60%, then easily the cost of a house for the more reliable ones? You're off the shits if you think this makes remotely any sense. Only for major companies and businesses? You mean all the bars and custom item scripts that store nothing that anyone cares about? I'm sorry, but do you even know how affordable those things are?
  5. It affects more than plateholders. Illuminated lowrider plaques don't work because the new menu doesn't have the color option, but apparently the old menu did. Would be nice to have the choice like we do with clothes.
