  1. The timer should not come down, i think a factor you are forgetting about is the fact the owner should be given a reasonable window of time to have a chance to get the car back. Anything that would go down to lets say 3-5minutes it would narrow the window of time for the owner to put out a BOLO or hunt it down and get to chopshop significantly. At that point it wouldnt be fair for the owner of the vehicle as they would have little to no chance to retrieve it. Maybe an in-between could be interesting? No way an instant chop would be healthy for the server in my opinion. This would be way, way too easy for the thief and make BOLOs for stolen vehicles nearly useless. The owner would have such a short window of time to intercept the thief on his way to chopshop it wouldn't be reasonable. Perhaps you can 'drop it off' at the chop while the mechanics are working on it, allowing you to go and get another vehicle but with the risk of the owner being able to sneak it and get it away while you are no longer looking over it? Im sure there could be a lot of counters to this suggestion, just looking for alternatives of OP's and your suggestion. Now keep in mind, 3k is the minimum you can get, once you know the locations that a lot of people tend to leave their cars or you set up a proper operation to chop you can make more than the numbers you have mentioned. You can also get much higher value cars if you rob people for the ones they are in, you just have to be properly organized and have the required firepower. You have a choice not to chop and wait for our operation to be over (i.e bigger situation going on we have to tend to) or pay the small fee to keep the rest of the money the chop yields. Personally i do not think the amount the chopshop gives should be changed based off of IC events/issues such as people 'owning' the chopshop and taxing its users. I do have a biased point of view as i am part of the group that 'takes over' chopshop and does the contracts to tax people using it, but i think it is really great RP. It would be much easier and lucrative to just rob them all but that wouldn't be as enjoyable for either side. I do not think the interactions at the chopshop would be the same if you could instantly chop the vehicles. You make a decent point here and the expensive cars are targeted heavily when spotted by those who can take them on and rob their owner. Though the amount that they will be targeted versus their less expensive counterpart will probably not change change as there are so many chebureks, warreners, or other much less expensive vehicles. I disagree with the yellow highlighted text though unless you meant for it to apply just to the very cheap cars, then maybe i would agree. There has to be a cost for your vehicle to be chopped because you failed to park it in a safe spot, got mugged, or any other scenario. If there isnt then the vehicle owner can just take their 2 most expensive cars out of their garage when they go offline or know they wont need it for awhile and let their buddies get the cash for the chop with little to no cost for the owner. This could be interesting, but on the other hand the main risk would now move to the lockpicking of the car and i can see a lot of arguments also being made against that such as being exposed in the open for too long. Maybe a skillcheck could be added? as the better you get and more cars you chop you would get better over time and improve your efficiency with chopping vehicles? I have absolutely no idea how this could be added or if its possible, just thinking of other options. Making it instant would be bad for the above mentioned reasons having to do with the owner getting it back along with removing a decent amount of RP having to do with it. But i also think making it instant AND increasing the cash payout would be making it way too lucrative. I'm unsure whether to +1 or -1. Lots to think about, and sorry for the long ass read.
  2. I (Jonathan Mercer) was the one who was talking to PD to set up the swap for the hostage.I forgot to save the part on my end where the shootout started, But Jay, Palmer and Reefer can confirm that Dick Vane was the other officer there, Dick started shooting at the 3 irish who had the hostage point blank with his pistol and Palmer hopped in his cruiser and went to run them over.
  3. Player(s) being reported: ID 61/159 Date of interaction reported: 2019/03/18 Unix time stamp from HUD: Your characters name: Jonathan Mercer Other player(s) involved: @Anatoly Specific rule(s) broken: 9. Non-Roleplay (NRP) ● Actions that are unrealistic or promote poor quality roleplay are considered as non-roleplay. ● Examples of actions that are considered as non-roleplay: • Cop Baiting - Provoking a reaction from emergency services without a realistic reason. • Mercy Killing - Asking to be killed by a friend (Killing a friend falls under deathmatching). • Unrealistic stunt jumping or the use of an expensive vehicle to ram into other vehicles. • Spawning a scripted work vehicle and using it for crimes or submerging any vehicle in water. • Swimming in water for an unrealistic amount of time or without a destination during a chase. ● Players who disconnect during roleplay must reconnect and inform other parties in order to resume roleplay. If you are unable to reconnect it may be excused after providing proof. ● In a situation where a player’s game crashes or the player is kicked from the server, they should be allowed to have the same advantages as they have had before their leave. How did the player break the rule(s)? After he stole our friends car we chased him to the location you see in the video, i saw him run to the bushes but wasn't sure which one so i cleared them with my trophy first at low speed to make sure he wouldn't die and i wouldn't be ambushed. I found him and held him up but he did not obey my commands I start to shoot at him to kill him, he had 12seconds from the commands given to the first bullet that hit. Along with the "Cunts" in /b he Combat logged twice(the first, then came back around 20min after) so we couldn't completely finish him off. Evidence of rule breach:
  4. I dont think he means the bank NCZ. It could be the Fleeca bank near chumash, or countless other banks already put into GTA V. +1 OP
  5. This is good to hear, but I think something should be done until then This is my contention, PD should not know the chopshop even if there is a BOLO out on someone's car until somebody makes a 911 call about it. I.e the guy who's car got stolen asks around for chop location, goes to it waiting for his car to show up and when it does he calls the cops
  6. The issue being if you use KBM which most do to be able to RP properly, accidentally forgetting to press L and set cruise control to 70, or leaving the bank too fast/ holding 'W' a little bit too long (especially on fast accelerating vehicles such as the drag) can get you wanted, and a full 2 hour sentence. I like the concept, but it needs a lot of tuning in my opinion. This should not come from the players pockets until the devs find 'a fix' or a proper way to implement speed cameras because alot of players will get shafted until the change is made.
  7. Sure, until you are the passenger and also get charged because the driver is speeding which has happened multiple times to those i have spoken to. It appears the script charges everyone in the vehicle which clearly shouldn't be the case.
  8. I was told by many PD members that the rule in place is just for drug labs, not chopshops. They can currently camp the chopshops, patrol to find it and drive by them or come back later if a BOLO is placed. Chopshops do not require a call placed the same as drug labs from everything i have been told. there is no ooc rule against camping or patrolling them.
  9. Another simple suggestion and addition to the OOC PD rule for patrolling drug labs. Add a similar one one for chopshops. They can only go to them when someone calls them/makes a report about the chopshop directly making the call at the location or describing it in the report. I have had multiple encounters where PD are camping/patrolling at or near a chopshop waiting for someone to start chopping or on a BOLO to catch them. Obviously chopshops are in set locations because of the script, however i do not think PD should know the locations ICly as they can be chopped anywhere, in your own garage,with an illegal connection you have,etc. This suggestion would make it so that even if there is a BOLO out PD should not be able to patrol the chopshops and drive by the areas in hopes to see cars there as they shouldn't know the locations ICly unless someone makes the call and reports it. The mentioned drug lab suggestion post: Let me know your thoughts!
  10. -1 IMO. Taxis are still preferred over fagios when available because a fagio tops out at 70 as you said. Nerfing the fagio in terms of cost or speed would shaft the whole server. Taxi's still are far better when doing any sort of considerable distance, the cameras are only in the NCZs not everywhere. I don't think the small areas a taxi would have to slow down justifies nerfing such a widely used service like the fagio, not to mention fagios are available 24/7 but majority of the time 1 or so cab drivers are online and cannot possibly answer all the calls.
  11. Can't disagree with you on this point, but a form of criminal counter like a license plate cover could still be interesting to implement in the future. I'm curious to see what direction it is taken in for later updates but I dislike the implementation of speed cameras in its current form.
  12. +1 to this especially the mech and VOIP suggestion. If there could also be added an option for the mech bill to fix only the tires for less it would also be a good addition in my opinion especially considering how damn buggy they are and admins having more important issues to deal with. 2tires popped shouldn't cost the same as my engine eating 3 shotgun shells.
  13. I'm unsure about LA so I might be wrong on how it functions there, but where I live (Montreal) speed cameras may only give a fine, no demerits and the person would not be wanted for it. I might be wrong on this, and correct me if I am but it seems that the speed cameras add you to the wanted list for reckless driving. Twice that you are already looking at max sentence. I'm not entirely opposed to the idea, but I think it needs abit of tuning and you shouldn't be added to the wanted list IMO especially when wearing a mask or driving a stolen car (still charges the driver when driving a stolen car, there should be no charges). There should be a form a form of counterplay like OP mentioned, you are able to toggle your plate being covered if you interact with your vehicle (maybe a seperate item, and an added option in the ctrl+x menu?). Having cops on you for driving too fast twice and getting max sentence is nonsense to me. And being required to have your phone off at all times because of it.
  14. Me:"Look everywhere, tell me where the fucking stash is." You: "i don't know" Me: "you're gonna look" You: "i dunno men" Me: "i'm not asking you to talk, i'm telling you you're gonna look everywhere and you're gonna fucking tell me where the stash is" Then you get hit by me and ID 18 after talking again. When speaking i established very clear orders and steps for you to follow. The yellow highlighted part implies steps for you to follow: First: You will stop talking. Second: You will look everywhere in the house you are currently in Third: You talk once the second step is completed to tell me where the stash is once you find it. This is very clear that you did not follow my orders. And you got punched for it. I am pretty sure i could argue that i also would've had a valid reason to kill you. But i didn't as it would not help me find the stash. I didn't expect this petty report to happen, but no problem. I now know to save every interaction i have with the Bych's in the future. I was simply saying having the previous 5mins would be better for context to the entire situation (which would include you running into the house after you saw us pointing guns at you outside then coming out 10-30seconds or so later, and me telling you multiple times shut the fuck up unless you have been directly ordered to speak).
  15. +1 don't know how it works behind the scenes or if it's just desync, but a kick does more damage than a shotgun...
