  1. I think part of the reason that this seems unusual is an issue that plagues roleplay servers in general - woman are taller than average. Don't get me wrong there are a lot of tall girls out there, but at 5'10" the majority stand below me. Overall consensus is around 5'4" in America. This becomes especially notable when you have females of common Asian ethnicity. From my experience at university, I never had a Hmong, Chinese or Japanese girl stand over me, very few coming close. Once again, doesn't mean they don't exist but it's much less common. I imagine this is a symptom of guys playing girl characters and likely either a honest mistake or the result of someone wanting to play a 'strong' female character, as well as people from other countries where females may be taller on average. But it causes characters in the less than five-six range to seem shorter by comparison as they are less common.
  2. I'll say it once and I'll say it again. Don't break the rules don't get reported. If two players decide they're okay with rape roleplay it doesn't mean they can do it. You know what's cringe? People getting in accidents from their own mistakes and covering it up with 'I didn't see you' or 'you didn't load in for me' promptly before parking and getting their car because it's damaged on their screen. Crash roleplay isn't fun but you know what fixes it? Drive reasonably.
  3. Having some form of shadowplay running is always what I'd recommend. If you're okay with continuing the roleplay, great both parties get something to do. Otherwise having video evidence will allow admins to easily let you off the hook, though many people will understand if you pass them the clip without an admin involved. To get back on track, I think the worst single experience I had was when I was driving through Paleto Bay and a pink Radius pulled out in front of my Yosemite. Another car pinned the right side, believe it was a pink Futo. The occupants stepped out with bats and attempted to rob me. I bunkered in my car and while I was considering a reply they gave up, like the ten seconds I was processing what was going on was stalling or something. I think the hilarity was really the outlandish robbery gear and cars. I could have simply reversed out, or shot them anyway (though I try to not whip out my CCW unless I have to). Probably would have gone with it if they were actually properly dressed for the occasion and gave me a chance to reply. Honorable mention goes to the car scene here. Surprised it hasn't been mentioned in detail yet. Not reflective of everyone, but generally 'street racing' involves people driving up and down a road like nutters and ignoring crashes, overuse of radios, driving cars that aren't realistic to age or job entitlement. Characters feel like they're out of an animation, or just don't make a lot of sense in Los Santos like first generation Japanese characters better suited to star in Initial D. As someone who is into cars in real life, I'd love to be able to do things here that would either pose legal risk or are out of my financial ability but the disconnect between my real life experience and what I witness in GTAW always steers me away. Oh yeah and when you're law enforcement and actually catch someone on motor vehicle contest they often get sour OOC over it. I'm okay with racing but if you take the risk there can be consequences.
  4. I'm going to be really honest. I think people skipping MVA crashes is a minor concern. But by all means if you break the rules and an uninvolved party that witnessed it reports you, they have every right to do so. Just because your rule break has no effect on the player, does not mean you did not break the rules. Not the topic of discussion here anyway. Just a healthy reminder, I don't feel it's fair to blame anyone for not knowing every example in the rules with how lengthy they've grown. Especially when it was acceptable on other communities.
  5. Per the server rules, failing to roleplay a car crash, unless it was clearly caused due to desync (contact an admin through /report if you wish for a crash to be voided); Applies under Common Courtesy. Agreeing to skip isn't permitted, it's simply hard to enforce. Might be something to consider in the future as that party would have every right to report if the footage clearly indicated it wasn't desync.
  6. This is unfortunately just the state of legal roleplay. It happens in the government, it happens frequently in legal factions from my experience with LEOs. It's very much the 'we're realistic when it's convenient'. They enforce a policy strictly because the real life equivalent does not or will not do so, and then make entirely different decisions to the real life equivalent on personal preferences because we're 'divergent' from them. You can't have your cake and eat it too, and you can't say you are reflecting your real life equivalent when you pick and choose when to do so. Besides the point, most people have taken protests and abused them at this point. I'm not in favor of OOCly restricting protests, but I don't think anything good can come out of them when even protests outside of Davis like at the city hall are turned violent by a few bad actors. The protests of 2020 were motivated OOC - they were told they couldn't roleplay the real life protests and found an excuse to throw hands. I'm on the 'I wish they could be organized, but they probably won't be' boat.
  7. I've done some testing on the subject, and I'm pretty confident it's 10% of the vehicle's cost. This is regardless of class - a Sports car costs 10% to recover, a Van costs 10% to recover. As an additional note, this is based on the current price of the vehicle. So if you paid $45,000 unregistered price for a vehicle, and the current cost at the dealership is $65,000 the cost to recover the vehicle is $6,500.
  8. In the past my understanding was there would be a fee of 5% of the unregistered value of the vehicle if it was scrapped or physically destroyed. I'm unsure if that's still the case. See below.
  9. ngl every time someone gets capped here I'm like
  10. South Central is a low income area, but it's not a warzone (at least from a realism perspective). Gangs don't 'own' the streets. This isn't some third world country (or Minnesota) where law enforcement have a complete loss of control of regions of the map. We do patrol in South Central, but you'll find many deputies avoid traffic stops in the region. Those who do engage typically request extra backup. We come prepared for the hazards of the area. We can't just stop driving around because we should be 'afraid' of gangs. That'd indicate a loss of control of the area, and then you'd have to RP getting martial law'd by the national guard as they get involved.
  11. Forcing people to go out to the county for fishing doesn't 'benefit' county roleplay nor does it make any sense to prevent people from fishing off the city piers with the script. If someone wants to kill time with their friend at the pier, there's no reason to prevent them from casually script fishing while interacting. If someone wants to sell fish from the pier, this can be better controlled by where you are allowed to sell fish at. Allow fishing on city locations where it makes sense. They will be less profitable anyway because they're not 'hot spots' which provide more valuable fish. Everyone wins.
  12. I do actually like this idea, among the few that have suggested it in this thread. Having a notifications such as "Do not use /outfit to change outfits without roleplay or to clothes that would not realistically be present, especially immediately following a crime." in bold in the chat may only serve as a deterrent to honest people, but will at least serve as a warning admins can stand behind if someone's caught in the act. And a good reminder if you're having an off day.
  13. The reason I included scrolling was to account for actions such as robberies that don’t involve firing the weapon.
  14. I understand misclicks happen a lot. If you read the bullet points, it’s 5 minutes if you punch someone is what I recommended. You also wouldn’t be restricted if someone punched you, only if you were struck with a melee weapon. Misuse of the commands is pretty wide spread and this would limit the unneeded time for admins to deal with such reports.
