I will reiterate the points I listed on the first page of this thread.
Nobody cares about the roleplay being done on their car.
They want their vehicle done up, re-colored, etc. but cannot do this unless a garage opens.
Garages are the only script businesses that require players to keep them open.
Players who play at odd times are out of luck.
Garages should be treated like any other script business. (24/7, clothing store, etc.)
I understand a lot of people take great pride and joy in their mechanic roleplay, but that is not relevant whatsoever to the key problem at hand; the key problem being: garages should be treated like any other script business.
I notice a lot of mechanic role-players saying there is a supply and demand issue with truckers, it is expected as trucking is a noob job and people should be advancing out of trucking and into more fruitful avenues of roleplay. If we can solve the key issue with garages (that being they are not treated like any other script business) surely we can also solve the supply issue as well.
