    ID 16,19,24. (6.6.1 Non-RP)

    Player(s) being reported: ID 16,19,24 Date of rule breach: 17/1/2019 Time of rule breach: Aprox. 11:10 EST Your characters name: Jonathan Mercer Other players involved: - Specific rule broken: 6.6 Non-roleplay 6.6.1 Actions that are unrealistic or promote poor quality roleplay are considered as non-roleplay. 6.6.2 Examples of actions that are considered as non-roleplay: • Theft of a vehicle by hijacking the driver without any roleplay, when there are no circumstances to justify it, such as your character being in immediate danger of getting killed or arrested; • An attempt to provoke a police chase, without a realistic reason, also known as “cop baiting” (a realistic reason would be to divert police units away from an area, where your allies plan to commit a serious crime or are in the progress of one); • Hurting an injured player, because they ask to be killed, also known as “mercy killing” (usually done to respawn their character quicker, it’s unrealistic, because in reality people do not respawn). • Use of an expensive vehicle, such as a super car, to ram into other vehicles (players should show care and value their luxury vehicles, because they are costly to repair).

    It doesnt, just elaborating on cristiano's claim on how the other side (us) can interpret it as baiting.

    ID 96 ( DM, NCZ )

    You just forgot to add my ID my dude, no worries though. ID 115 checking in, name Jonathan Mercer, the dude on the bf400 in the video. When i stopped at parking to type on my radio, patryk pulled to the side (on the sidewalk) and you went into it, getting off your drag and pointed a gun at me for a considerable amount of time, (clearly not a MC due to both of your positioning, and you continued to aim at me as i drove out of it.) while not saying anything, i let it go because i figured 'meh'. But then when i went to pick up cris from MD patryk tried to run me off the road/block my path (or desync ram me, whichever). After which he proceeded to follow me to MD when i picked up cris, we went back to parking lot were there were more zetas (4 ish from memory) one of which drove off after you guys left when seeing how outnumbered you are (i assume). after we got to parking, cris hopped into the car seen in your video, then you came back to taunt us and make a death threat (as per your video, callin us 'dead men') when you realized we were gonna clap you for all the shit you said, the threats, and most importantly your actions you fled to MD. which as previously mentioned, i doubt it was a mere coincidence. So... I think 'baiting' is a fair statement for what you did, to then proceeded to run inside the NCZ. Edit: first sentence, got 2 interactions mixed up, now its up to date with proper info. Below are the 2 screenshots of what i mentioned.

    I think baiting is a fair categorization for what took place, you threatened them saying 'dead men' and did other things to provoke a reaction, then once you realized you were outnumbered (1 on the bike, 2 in the car) you ran back to the NCZ behind hospital (or i guess in front, depending how you look at it). Not defending him trying to cap you in the NCZ, just saying that i just somehow doubt that it was a mere coincidence you going to that location with patryk after your threats and actions

    Motorcycles and Jerrycans

    Apologies if this suggestion has been made in the past but I have noticed that when you buy a jerrycan from a general store and use it, it doesn't fill your vehicle up by liter/gallon, but by a flat 25%. This causes motorcycles to get screwed over in terms of the cost relative to the benefit of the jerrycans. If we take the fuel tank of an F-150, the standard size is 87 Liters, whereas if we take a bike such as the CBR 600, its tank size is 18.2Liters. Taking this into account ingame it is far less realistic and it is clear that the drivers of cars and trucks benefit far more from jerrycans than motorcycle riders. So my suggestion is to make the jerrycans refuel by a set volume, and not a flat%. Motorcycle before Jerrycan After Car before Car after

    Sure, maybe if in supercars or motorcycles... But no side or rear mirrors is a massive issue. Also with forced FPP i would bet 100 monopoly dollars there will not be anywhere near the amount of truckers there are currently.

    These are also 2 great points, alot of people want to see their customized vehicle from the outside when driving, not just the fuzzy dice on the non-functional mirror. For me if this game was Arma 3, I would be all for it. However GTA V first person is absolutely shite.

    Other than it being a bad idea for all the reasons the others have brought up. FORCING it would make the trucking job nearly impossible for most people, having to back up into tight spots without functioning side mirrors., Sure it can be done but would take 100 back and forths,currently third person is needed for many jobs or activities,even if somehow it is fixed I don't think anyone should be forced into a PoV they don't like.

    If that's what you think you clearly haven't read any sort of counter-arguments in this thread. There are many reasons. Here ill number them to make it nice and neat. 1) How would it be billed, flat $ or a percentage of what you have in the bank? 2) would it bill the owner, in this case what would happen with stolen vehicles? 3) would they be in fixed places, if so where? literally every street, or just near NCZ areas? 4) would they add other RP elements to be able to contest the speeding tickets i.e court system? 5) would the police and emt be immune? because you can see them be frequent offenders as well. 6) Would it bill automatically, or notify the police of locations of frequent speeders? 7) Would there be any form of counterplay to this other than the scrapyard cars? perhaps be able to purchase a fairly expensive item that blacks out your plate? 8 ) How would it effect those of us who do legitimate jobs in transportation, currently it is based off of distanced travel so there is even more of an incentive to not follow the traffic lights and speed limit. Get it done as fast as possible so you can get paid as fast as possible. (The exception to this would be salary income employees such as taxi drivers). Would they increase the pay to make it an incentive to do those jobs, or just keep the same pay but now you have to follow the laws to not get dinged by a ticket. (also, to add onto this, if youre driving a truck or any sort of other vehicle for a job, it would be great not having to pay out of pocket for gas, companies cover that.) With literally no information to go off of on any of the topics, the better question instead of asking "why would you vote no" is why would you vote yes? they have not elaborated on any points brought up or how it would effect those in the server. I'm sure i forgot a thing or two, but those are some of the biggest points i have brought up, and seen brought up.

    That's as silly as me saying "if you vote yes, you're an idiot who votes for things with little to no information provided." Why even bother saying that? Needless confrontation.

    Whats the scale you are going by though? I can change the qualification and say that most RP heavy moments usually happen when a situation goes bad and it turns into a gunfight/fisticuffs or other forms of violence. But point taken. If we are focusing on driving realism can we talk about how if at all would the pay change for truck drivers, parcel drivers, etc? if we want to make it more rp and they have to stop at red lights and the whole 9 yards... would there be any form of compensation to the salary or would it stay the same? Speaking of driving trucks or operation vehicles at as a job, what about refueling? currently you pay your fuel even when you're driving to a delivery and you are supposed to be working for company so they should pay your fuel and not you with out of pocket expenses. Edit: as i mentioned before, and will mention again, there is currently 0 incentive for drivers of law abiding jobs to follow the laws of the road because they will not be paid as much... no point in following the laws to a delivery and get to it in half an hour when you can speed, run red lights, and do it in 15. i hope this changes if people want to be more strict on road laws, speeding, red lights, etc.

    Thats a great idea! But why focus on driving only? If we want to make it more like RP and like real life, cops should die from a 9mm placed between the eyes

    +1. Asking if we want them, and not asking how they should or would be elaborated. just a 'yes/no' question. They can look at this poll and say 'huh, most people want speed cameras, lets put them in!' if most people vote yes because they can see it as a seal of approval as people voted yes so they should be implemented without creating another poll asking HOW they should be implemented... To re-iterate i think this poll is just irresponsible

    IF we really wana be anal, and follow the "more like real life" argument people seem to be putting forwards as a reason why they should be implemented... When and if speed cameras are implemented they should remain stationary, so once you know the map you know where they are (with lets say the exception of a few cameras that move) because IRL, usually theyre mounted on intersections or on the other side of the shoulder on the highway, permanently there. The exception being those that get towed and moved around based off of the time of day. This would allow people to learn the map and dodge the cameras, and in turn make it more realistic... You know, because of RP and all. Also, adding a radar detector would be interesting (apologies if its already in the game. havent looked in every store) because that would be more realistic too, and then if you get caught with one you get a massive fine, similar to IRL depending on the country.
