  2. In a realistic scenario, you would not, would not even think about killing a cop. Even the most violent gangs avoid killing law enforcement because of the repercussions. There's also the fact that if you get caught, it's life in prison, not 2 hours of watching game of thrones, there's asset forfeitures, and RICO. However, on the server, there are barely any repercussions, so it happens after almost every pursuit. It's not necessarily the worst thing, it is a game and some concessions have to be made, and they have been made, major concessions in realism just for the sake of making life easier for criminals. However, we are now at the point at which we are saying that attacking an armored police convoy is too hard? Everyone should seriously reconsider what they are saying, and how it will affect the server in terms of realism.
  3. With these modifications, I think the idea can create a lot of interesting roleplay, and I support it.
  4. I think that some of the points raised in this topic are quite ironic. The issue raised by OP is that law enforcement has a "play to win" attitude, and does not want to lose, because they do not treat an NPC as a real person that might be injured. As far as I know, currently NPCs are not treated as real people by anyone, and if you want to do advanced RP with a cashier, you can request an admin to take it's place. The problem is that the flip side is never considered. What is your complaint really? The fact that you dislike that when you take hostage a defenseless NPC, that will never try to run, escape, or do anything, it does not mean that you automatically win the situation. That is a problem? I've been with the department for a good amount of time now, and I can tell you for a fact that when people have a real hostage (a player) it gets treated very seriously, and out of five or so hostage situations I was personally involved in, in four of them the hostage takes got away with the cash, and were never caught. The only one that I can recall in which the hostage takes were killed/captured was when they decided to take a hostage on top of a crane. However, you never considered the flipside. How many times has it happened that cops are arresting someone's very good friend/brother, and then you have the rest of his gang shoot up the scene with AKs, and ram cops with heavy vehicles. Why is that alright? How is starting a shootout, with the person that you're trying to save in the middle, not playing to win, and very unrealistic? If you really want the RP standard that you're preaching, it has to be two-ways.
  5. I believe you may be suffering from the effects of nostalgia. The GTA SA map is definitively smaller than the GTA V map.
  6. You were asked to be patient, it has barely been 10 hours. Please avoid posting again unless asked to by members of staff.

  10. There is a way to dodge them, don't speed.
  11. Selling a moderately nice looking house, with space for three vehicles in the garage, and your own pontoon in front of the house. offers here
  12. They can create a new character in the second character slot. With that they will have four chances.
  13. You roleplay killing your character off in the way of your choosing, then you walk into the precinct and change your name. If you didn't use the name before, your record will be cleared automatically, no admin assistance required.
  14. The max prison time is 2 hours, if you got your tickets wiped every time you went to prison, people would voluntarily go to prison. I don't see what's so unreasonable about having to pay the money you owe to the government.
  15. If someone had a criminal history, and can't obtain a firearm permit because of it, he can decide to kill his character and start fresh. (keeping all of his assets) That is the main avenue, or staying in his gang, and obtaining guns from them. The only different is that a felon can't carry them legally anymore, which is very welcome.
  16. I don't think that it should matter that much to you, there seems to be a specific group of players that respond very rashly to any suggestion that might impact illegal activities, but you also got a lot of reasonable responses, and you should focus on those.

  18. Everyone on this server is equal, no one is nor should be barred to making a suggestion just because they are in a certain faction, that's a great example of attacking the person, rather than the idea. The difference between admin jail and DOC is the fact that you can roleplay. If you get arrested with five other gang members, and you all just say "I'll see you when my time is over", then you're part of the problem, and you're the reason there is "fuckall to do in prison". This is a roleplaying server, and no one should be waiting to be spoon-fed roleplay by DOC.
  19. TRANSFER REQUEST Character to Transfer From: Darnell Stacks Character to Transfer To: Jason Steel Requested Transfer: 1x Hakuchou Drag 1x House in Vespucci Canals Reason for Transfer: Following the disbanding of the Almighty Vice Lord Nation, Darnell has left town, and as a result of this his assets are effectively useless. Jason has owned a gas station for several months, and as such, it stands to reason that he would not be homeless, as he currently is, and that he would be able to afford a sports-bike. In the current housing market, it's difficult to obtain a house, and having this property on Jason would allow me further character development options, and aid with the realistic portrayal of a business owner. How would you transfer the asset(s) if approved? I would receive assistance from a trusted acquaintance.
  20. How do you propose consistent RP will form around prison when most people sit there for an hour and change? (with VIP). Increasing prison sentences will add population, and with it, roleplaying opportunities. I also refuse to believe that most people afk prison, with how often people attempt and succeed prison breaks, prison smuggling, and other prison related activities.

  22. This has been brought up in a lot of different threads, but I think it's time we bring it it's own thread to talk about. The current maximum prison sentence is too short, and it's having a negative impact on the state of the server. If there are no serious consequences for committing serious crimes, then they will be committed at exaggerated rates. This results in people robbing people in the middle of the street, or even people robbing cops for a bag, because they get a chase and even if they're caught? Release is a Netflix show away. The very exaggerated amount of crime also means that the LSPD is not free to deal with non-emergency stuff like the Impound Lot. @Kai There is also another problem with having the max prison sentence being so relatively low, in that, someone that commits any felony and then evades, would receive max. time anyway, so he has no further incentive to not commit more crimes in his evasion (such as shoot cops), which results in people shooting a lot more than they should, when realistically, no one would be shooting cops over 3 reckless operation charges. It was stated multiple times that max. prison time will be increased when DOC settles in as a faction. In my opinion, that has happened. DOC, especially now with the new leadership, is stable, recruiting, and maintaining presence in almost all timezones. What's the actual suggestion? Increase the maximum prison time to eight hours. (480 minutes) but no crime sentencing should be changed. That means that no one should be getting the max time, unless they really do commit that many crimes. For reference: Attempted Murder is 150 minutes, Felony Evasion is 75 minutes. Therefore, someone that shot someone else, then evaded in a car, would receive a sentence of 225 minutes. (105 minutes over our current max) Armed Robbery is 105 minutes, Felony Evasion is 75 minutes. Therefore, someone that robbed someone with the use of a gun, then evaded in a car, would receive a sentence of 180 minutes. (60 minutes over our current max) There will be an increase of about an hour for most reasonable criminals, however those that commit a lot more crimes before getting arrested will get a longer sentence, as it should be. Under the old system, someone that killed 10 cops would get the same sentence as someone that robbed a store and evaded, because of the relatively low max. sentence.
