  1. Have you ever watched a film or show, and thought to yourself, "that was a waste of time, but it was fun?" It's the same here. This game is meant to transport us to a world that isn't ours, and exists as a way out from the stresses and hardships of everyday life. The moment your enjoyment is taken away to the detriment of too much realism is when the ship starts to sink. The lines between escapism and realism are blurry, so it's impossible to draw them. Escapism is built itself on realism, and realism relies on escapism to keep us reeled in, so both need to coexist. It's about finding the right balance.
  2. Thank you for all the memories throughout the years. You shall not be forgotten. Rest in peace.

  3. I'm into thought-provoking books. I've read plenty but those who stood out the most for me were: The Myth of Sisyphus by Albert Camus; 1984 by George Orwell; Beyond Good and Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche; Being and Nothingness by Jean-Paul Sartre.
  4. Using Microsoft Edge fixes this too.
  5. Keep in mind this causes input lag. It's not a big deal in slow-paced games like GTA V RP because it doesn't demand instant results from click to screen like fast-paced games such as CS:GO do, but it may cause instability in graphical spikes which V-Sync won't be able to handle fast enough in the event there's a lot of action going on. It's still a great performance boost and I recommend using it if you can compromise the input lag.
  6. San Andreas shouldn't be based off of California as per continuity rules. It should be its own independent state.
  7. I'm going to speak for PHMC because it's the faction I'm mostly familiar with and have been a member of since day one. Yes, activity issues exist and the faction is short-staffed. There's no denying that. Can we as a faction put in more efforts to help fighting these issues? Absolutely. But it needs to go both ways. It kills our motivation every time someone skips roleplay with us, it makes us feel unappreciated and undervalued. Perhaps you don't realize it, nor do you care, but it's true. It's also extremely frustrating that 95% of the ER visits are gunshot wound victims or patients with either a minor concussion or a broken leg after a car accident. They may be fun the first few times, but they become way too boring to deal with that it's no surprise we avoid a lot of them like the plague. Give us more unique roleplay opportunities. It's winter season, and there are plenty of illnesses that are too common around this time of the year. Colds, croups, strep throat, pneumonia, stomach flu, influenza, acute ear infections, to name a few. Look up their symptoms and roleplay them accordingly, it's honestly not hard at all and takes little to no time. Also, play this game with us where you don't tell us what your character is suffering from straight away unless it's painfully obvious, but make it so we have to keep asking questions, run tests and gather medical history information in order to make a diagnosis. I can assure you we'll have a great time if you do that, and so will you. Something as simple as the above would most certainly help boosting activity levels and, ultimately, help sorting out staffing issues. And I'm sure the same applies to other factions listed on this thread. There's most definitely work that could be done on their end, but maybe if the community starts approaching them differently and providing them with unique roleplay opportunities, most of these issues will be eradicated.
  8. This is like asking whether you'd report someone to the cops if you saw them breaking the law. If I noticed someone trying to break into a car, I'd absolutely call the police. But if I saw a 16 year-old drinking alcohol? Meh, why bother. Ultimately, it all comes down to how severe a player's actions are. A lot of people nowadays forum report everyone for anything and everything when it should only be done as a last resort. Learn to take a seat and talk things through with other players. If you truly love this game, it doesn't matter if you win or lose.
