  1. I don't see reasons not to, I guess? Kind of defeats the purpose of a lifer character, but at the same time, at no point has it been stated that lifers are on life without parole (to my knowledge, but it also says jail-only so we could argue). Also, as far as I remember, the SD already has a program for parole which you can apply for, so this therefore should not be that difficult to implement.
  2. I had it happen once, I successfully distracted a robber and escaped, only to find out that later they've gotten themselves killed by the cops to avoid consequences. They respawned with no issue. They must've started blasting first. I 100% agree with this.
  3. It sounds good on paper but in reality for many people it's just gonna be a pain in the ass and an useless bar that you have to keep filled. Unless you add RPG mechanics related to it like fat, weight, strength, fainting when you don't consume anything for excessive amounts of time etc. it's literally an useless bar which would boost businesses on the server as more people would end up eating food, but at the cost of the feature itself being a pain in the ass for the players. RPG features associated with this would not be added like, ever, because people would fucking FLIP.
  4. Like I said, I wanted to mention this briefly just so I don't come off as some snowflake who is triggered over transgender characters being portrayed as stereotypical fuckmachines with nine inch cocks. What you said is completely valid and whilst we're here, I think it is good that you mention it and bring it to light. It still has little to do with the issue at hand, I was talking about portrayal itself. The stereotyping and dehumanizing of trans characters to the level of ERP bots with traits that aren't even humanly possible. Transgender roleplay itself is fine, it can be funny at times, even. But I do see how this connects to the real world - trans people getting shit because of a loud minority, this can be compared to transgender characters on GTA World getting a bad rep as a whole because of ERP bots. Just like I said in my post. I just want people to realize that not every character is going to be like that and that those characters do not always deserve to be ignored, avoided or to be shit talked behind their backs on an OOC level. Like I said, IC prejudice, discrimination and harassment is 100% valid if your character has those kind of viewpoints. To be honest this goes for all characters. Do not throw everyone into one bag, be it trans characters, LEOs or gangbangers. Anyone and everyone deserves to be respected in roleplay, and I do not mean IC respected, I mean OOC respected. You do not go out of your way to NOT roleplay with someone because their character happens to be someone specific. This shit has to end and it is coming to an end, it is an issue that is slowly disappearing within our community and I am proud of GTA World for progressing past that bullcrap. I do currently roleplay a trans woman character and I've been having nothing but genuine fun, I do hope that my character can be an example of how you can roleplay being a normal trans human without the need to base your character around sexual stuff. To finish this off, this once again comes back to the real world. People who base themselves around their sexuality, make it their whole personality are frowned upon, ignored, and all for good reasons. They are fucking unbearable, I do not even blame people for being how they are, all things considered.
  5. It wasn't you specifically, it's just a dumb idea over all to put anything behind an application. Also plus one on the Fire Marshals, I hate them with a passion.
  6. I don't want to be this one snowflake so please don't take this reply as such, I'm not a SJW or crazy on the opposite side of the spectrum but I am honestly fucking sick and tired of it too. Trans characters get the same treatment that trans people do in real life - someone in the loud minority of the LGBT community does some stupid shit, like saying that for some reason trans people need rainbow or trans-flag-colored sidewalks to walk on, otherwise they will not survive properly, and everyone flips their shit. To further prove that I am not going anywhere crazy with this, I wanna state that I do not associate myself with the LGBT community for this reason, a lot of other people who are gay, trans etc. also do not associate themselves with that community. There are some good things they do as a community, and a lot of dumb shit that they do which I will not call them out for because that would completely derail the topic and get me convicted of multiple hate crimes. This post is not my opinion about that community and I do not wish to indulge in any further conversations about it, just stating my position. It has to be said that trans characters are indeed, sometimes, roleplayed by idiots who do not do their research of what goes into transitioning. Does everyone do this? No. There are people who roleplay normal, everyday people but they happen to be trans. With jobs, with partners who do they do not cheat on, with careers and decent jobs. The problem also lays on both sides of the spectrum. And I will prove it to you in my next point. I really want to prove a point and I apologize for this not being an unpopular opinion but more of a fact, but it has to be said. I literally live in the worst county for LGBT people in the EU - Poland. And I am trans. And hear me out... I get less harassment, gossip, weird looks from people when they realize I'm not "real" than I do on GTA World as a trans character. This is not to say that trans characters are often victimized or bullied, but you do see massive amounts of people who just talk shit about them for absolutely no reason and avoid them like the plague. This comes back to what I said earlier - people not doing their research and roleplaying stereotypical, bland, overly sexualized and perfect characters. Lesbians have already been destroyed by this, now trans people get destroyed because more and more people are aware of the fact that "holy fuck trans people exist lol". Certain people on GTAW have gone as far as to propose that trans characters should be put behind applications. I think putting anything behind an application is the most retarded move you can make, so let's not do that. Let's call out people who roleplay these bad characters and report them. And do not report them because they are offensive, I can tell you on behalf of trans people in real life, we do not give a fuck about these characters being offensive, we have more serious shit to figure out lmao. Report them for breaking rules - portrayal, realism, but also for being unfit for our community and roleplaying something that is a walking stereotype. Unfortunately, transitioning is often very ugly, it has a massive toll on your mental health, it is an extremely long process and in the end it might not produce the proper results you wanted in the first place. The chances for very specific things to go wrong with you during transitioning are slim, but never zero. And these sometimes are not properly roleplayed by people, everyone is the perfect trans chick with nothing in particular sticking out until they happen to whip a pair of male genitals out. Working male genitals too, despite the character being on hormones that kill erections and sperm in the majority of trans women, especially when you're at that phase of it where you have the looks you wanted (multiple months or years). I dunno about trans dudes because I have honestly never seen a trans man on this server as a character, but they probably get shit too. I want to avoid talking about this on any deeper level, because someone might get triggered, but it literally HAS to be said. Not even to soften the harsh treatment that these characters get, but I feel like this has to be said because actually decent trans characters deserve some recognition in our community. Lastly, my unpopular opinion: trans characters getting IC harassment or hate is real and roleplaying someone who has prejudice against them is totally fine and realistic. Stop pretending like this server is an utopia, it's the same shithole real life Los Angeles is. You might get away with being trans because the state is progressive as hell, but someone will still spit next to you and call you the f-word. But also stop avoiding these characters only because some retard has ruined their reputation for you. Roleplay with them, treating them how your character normally would, if they show signs of being a dumbfuck, /report. End of the thread. TL;DR: I agree and I hate to agree. Trans characters get shit just how trans people do in real life, good job GTA World, you destroyed lesbians, now you will destroy the trans folk too. This isn't said totally seriously, the fact that people roleplay walking stereotypes doesn't somehow ruin my personal life, but it is sad to see.
  7. On the side, that scent is fucking magical so anyone who uses it IC gets a pass from me for having it in /examine Actually no, explain that is has notes of vanilla and pink pepper and whatever the fuck else they use. Most people won't know what half of these ingredients smell like anyways but at least it's a step in the right direction.
  8. i am tired of replacing my swear words with bababooey, how the fuck am i supposed to bully whitenames? plus juan
  9. 1) - What sort of business do you find yourself wanting more of on GTA World? I want to see more businesses which provide services of any sorts. Corporations to roleplay in, public works, maybe the postal service or delivery services which aren't strictly trucking. We could do with a few more restaurants too. Hell, even travel agencies could be fun if your imagination is crazy. 2) - What types of businesses aside from clubs and bars would make the city feel less empty in your opinion? The city currently feels empty due to blips being gatekept behind a paywall. It does not matter what type of business, it matters where and how dense the area is. We are at a point where we desperately NEED competition between businesses. If you even had three different bars in a single street, you could have something for everyone. This would lead to people roleplaying more in a dense area, therefore eliminating the empty street feeling. Let's say that besides those bars you had two restaurants open, within walking distance. You could literally get fucked up in a bar or club and then go eat at a spot two minutes away. This would be great. The question said no bars and clubs, so there you have it - businesses that are there ALONG WITH the bars and clubs. Restaurants, hookah lounges, food trucks, beauty salons, just everyday regular grocery stores or some hippie vegan bio stores. We're in a California-inspired setting after all, how come most of our businesses are so fucking boring when real life Los Angeles is booming with different stuff around every corner? 3) - Are you pleased with the current state of the GTA World business scene? No. I am not pleased, I hate some of the aspects. There is a complete lack of competition due to the paywall behind blips. I do not find the over-mapped nightclubs entertaining, I do not go into most bars. I avoid working at most of the server owned businesses as there ain't shit to do besides /ame breathes when nobody is watching you roleplay. I like to interact with the game so trucking and the businesses associated with it from the companies to the ones you deliver to are a fun addition but I think that trucking itself is way more entertaining and stimulating than slaving away at a 24/7 or gas station. I can only speak from the experience in trucking and some other jobs, I'd say trucking creates some dope networking if you work independent. Other businesses don't really give you that option. Also please do not take this as me derailing the topic but the Fire Marshals can go fuck themselves with their closures of businesses which violate the fire code or whatever. I understand that it adds to realism and such but they, as a faction, do not bring anything worthwhile to the server and yet they hold such a high power, where they can shut down a business over the fact that a Player couldn't give two shits about their stupid paperwork. I am bringing this up because said paperwork and bureaucracy is ridiculous. I work at a corporation in real life, we have a very loose and chill workflow but we are still a corporation and nothing will change that. And yet still, I file LESS stupid paperwork than I would if I wanted to open a business on this server. 4) - Do we need more server-owned businesses with some ''RPG'' elements to them? Or are player-owned businesses strictly the best option, or would a mix of both be better? Both. Some businesses would benefit from being owned by the server or at least being overwatched by an administrator or a team of administrators. Let's say we wanted a corporation to roleplay in, or at least some kind of office where we could roleplay and get the 4k paycheck for putting in work. I think that there is a only handful of players who could fit the role of any executive at a company like that. Same goes for how it is in real life. Whilst we do not need real life CEOs and directors to run a corp on a roleplay server, I think that having at least the right mindset is the bare minimum. I can see Aurum is doing mighty fine so kudos to them for being an example, I hope more large companies open up. I am certainly not against having the 4k paycheck there for everyone, with the possibility of an increase in pay the longer you work at your workplace. Not even depending on the position you hold necessarily. This would allow players to create actually fun and entertaining businesses, instead of picking out something from a list that hasn't changed for the past 5 years. If you think for a moment you will definitely find ways to establish a company and give 10+ people jobs for different positions which might require actual roleplay work, from paperwork to management, marketing or even PR. The bureaucracy surrounding most businesses should not be totally destroyed in my opinion, it's cool to keep things in order and have them on track. But it needs to be lowered from where we're at now. 5) - Should businesses/companies move towards the county? Do you believe this would increase county RP's popularity? Yes and no. They should move towards the county for sure. It will probably not boost the popularity by a lot due to the fact that many players prefer the city itself.
  10. I don't care about the tits too but the fact that this server cators towards minors at all is dumb. I don't think this is an upopular opinion, just nobody really talks about it since it probably won't be changed.
  11. At this point we're missing high tech implants, megacorporations with their own military divisions and overly bright lights. You add that, and boom! You get Cyberpunk 2077 roleplay. Glad we got a TV script, I can't wait to see this kinda shit on the news... Good morning, Los Santos! Yesterday's body count lottery rounded up to a solid and sturdy thirty! Ten outta Davis, thanks to unabated OOC beef. One officer down, so I guess you're all screwed, 'cause the LSPD will not let THAT go. Got another shootout in East Vespucci. Gangbangers at it again, poking holes in robbery victims! While over in Downtown, the Admin Team is scraping VDM victims off the pavement. Aaaand in Murrieta Heights... Well, Murrieta Heights is still Murrieta Heights. Jokes aside, this is worrying. It's worrying how an intro to a game set in a dystopian shithole is the perfect base to soon be the intro for our roleplay server, supposedly set in a place inspired by modern day California. Is California this bad in real life? Yes, Los Angeles is riddled with crime, including violence, with guns too. Does it happen on the rate that it does on this server? Fuck no. We are not simulating LA by any chance, we're just a roleplay server, let me get this straight. But, you have to remember that lowering the bars down for this much violence to be allowed on a massive scale has a significant impact on the players from all sectors. LEOs will naturally start rolling around in SUVs with 3 different armored vests, civilians will buy more and more guns. Most civilians on this server are already on such high alert, constantly, that roleplaying becomes a chore. You get mentally drained of all the will to play on the server, in public, because you're living in a constant fear of being pulled up on by some gangbangers. Does this shit happen in real life? No, it doesn't. There are always civilians in the streets, there's always a cop or two on patrol, there's CCTV and open businesses that will witness crime, report it and get the criminal into some shit. In my opinion, as someone who has played here since October 2018, I think that the biggest issue is player density. This is mainly due to the fact that business blips are gatekept behind a paywall. This causes a complete and utter lack of open businesses, competition and therefore a lack of player activity in any area. We do not need businesses to roleplay, right, but we need the streets to look and feel like they're alive. We need tighter groups of players roleplaying in a predominant area, rather than having a group of friends who will drive someplace else every day for drinks, food et cetera. The hood looks and feels alive and surprisingly safe because their players have the proper mentality, they sit outside, have fun and do activities together. Most people will call me mentally retarded right now because I stated a fact. Nobody shits where they eat, the ghetto areas on this server are alive, fun and occasionally dangerous for someone who is a local civilian. There are exceptions of course but for the most part, it's like that. Meanwhile, the rest of the city has civilians on high alert 24/7. Always walking with a hand on your waistband, just in case four (M)asks pull up in a sedan to fuck with you. I think most of you will see where I'm going with this - the ghetto doesn't need businesses as much as we do, they can do hood shit and make the streets their own. Other people, so LEOs and civilians, we can't really tag up walls for fun or play turf control like that. We need communities to make roleplaying outside fun. The more of us roleplay outside, the safer the streets will naturally become without the need to impose any OOC control and such. Of course you will not cover the whole city with 800 players, but that is not needed. Back in the day when we had 200 peak players, we had Mirror Park as our main hub for roleplaying. I am not saying go back to Mirror Park, because fuck Mirror Park, but look at Textile City. Textile City has so much potential, there are people randomly walking around there every day. I don't ever get harassed there. It is also in the heart of the city, close to South LS. Also look at Little Seoul, it has a massive civilian population, gang shit happens there all the time too, but it's under control to the point where you don't actually get caught in the cross fire when group A is screwing with group B. How to solve this? I don't fucking know, to be honest. We can start with roleplaying outside more and creating those roleplay hubs, I think that we desperately need active streets because that is the best way to naturally lower crime levels. People will not be so eager to go on hits in broad daylight when there's a civilian around the corner, with a phone, and ready to potentially inform the law about what you just did. I also think that people should roleplay the repercussions of hurting other people more than they do now. It is okay to roleplay being tough, but most of you are not crazy sociopaths. You're not that guy, pal. You will be haunted by the shit you do, it will be discouraging. Not everything needs to escalate to those levels of violence.
  12. idk how they do it nowadays but back in the day we'd roll or flipcoin our attacks and whoever landed like 5-10 attacks wins, then you can do roundhouse kicks and be bruce lee all you want, you might not hit it lol the mechanical fighting in 5 is also just dodging constantly, if you swing first you're fucked, fucked and fucked again, i hate it
  13. If I feel burnt out, which is literally every time I play on this server for more than two days straight, I just take a week long break and then come back. Rinse and repeat. I don't try to battle the feeling, it is normal and comes with being an adult, having a job, things to take care of. Sometimes you feel like you could be doing something better and more worthwhile than having virtual sex with people on GTAW. Most of the time I go do something totally not worth my time anyways, but I think that just proves that GTAW can naturally burn you out like any other hobby. I have a hard time staying motivated on this server simply due to the fact that some core issues aren't addressed. They do not hinder my player experience to the point where I'm unable to play, but the fact that they exist and that they could be replaced by more efficient, less pain-in-the-ass inducing mechanics and so on really fucks with my brain.
