Chop Shop exploding tires

Recommended Posts

Hello! A suggestion to remove the sound from tires exploding after removing them with tools. As its not realistic and people can use it against you to "know" its a chop and raid it and etc.  To remove the popping sound or make a rule against it.      Example - Someone drives past a house and hears vehicles popping from inside a built garage with walls and roofs.  They use that knowledge to their advantage to either snitch or raid themself.

I think we should have at least some advantage when we are doing illegal activity, right now i think cops have all the advantages and its very very HARD to be a criminal so I support this little advantage for owner of chop shops. it already gives out sounds when you picking up the chop so...

Honestly think this could be considered MG on the same level of seeing someone's ID or hearing them over VoIP through a wall.

Tires popping does seem like a weird bug, but lets not pretend that dismantling an entire vehicle with absolutely no sound is somehow ''realistic''.

If the suggestion is to correct an apparent bug +1

If it's a suggestion based on realism -1 (sounds should be present during the process, just not the tire pop sound)

Sounds should be present abselutely, personally i think its good as it is right now, just not the exploding tires.  In my opinion

As this just happened, someone heard a tire and broke into 4 doors to eventually find out if it was a chop or not. they raided it succesfully. I heard them say "i drove past and heard a vehicle tire popping, so we raided it" 

 

realisticly if you drive in a random neighbourhood and you hear a vehicle tire popping, do you think its an illegal activity?

But if there would be someone on a roof camping or seeing me bring in a couple cars and never comming out with them, that would be a better reason for an illegal activity which gives reason to attack/rob/break into properties middle of the daytime when people are walking the streets and driving around. 

 

We need clear rules and for those vehicles tires to stop exploding as you dont blow up your cars tire by changing it.  Here in my country we change it 2-3 times a year. Never have any of my tires ever exploded using the same tool to remove them, specially not continue exploding 500 more times.  If it has to explode ingame, then let it blow up one time when removing and thats it.

I think it is unrealistic to operate a chop shop in complete silence.

The issue is it should be completely silent when you're not doing anything to the car but the tires still explode 24/7 regardless.

I'm all for adding more sounds while the chop shop is being operated don't get me wrong, but I think it's a bad idea to have sound while the chopshop is idle.

It seems pretty obvious that tires that are gone flashing back then exploding away is a glitch so I'm not sure why you're giving this a -1.

-1 I agree with alex on this. Taking a part  a car is pretty load on it’s own and the only way that we have sounds right now is the tire popping. This it should stay until they are able to give a proper fix. Secondly it’s looks like a rage issue so I doubt it will ever be fixed.

There are a ton of other sounds, the wrench sound you can always hear, sound when you are cleaning up the debris, sound when you are removing the car lift, car hoist, tool box. Also sometimes the game bugs out and the glass does break non stop every 2 seconds aswell as the tire popping every 2 seconds, which shouldn't be normal and it's NONRP. I don't know who said that the chop shop has to be completly silent, we only pointed out the bug with the glass and the tire popping. If you really want to hear the tires pop and glass break, play it only once after we removed the door, tire. Not every 2 seconds so you can take advantage of it.

Also I forgot to mention that you can hear the wrench, tires popping, glass breaking, debris cleaning, dismantling the setup from very far away. Which will give away more than 60% of the houses where you could build a Chop shop, so you don't have to take advantage from a bug where you can hear the pops non stop popping. (Also you shouldn't know if it's a chop there or not since a tire can pop from being shot aswell)

As we all have said more than once on this topic, non of us is saying to remove sounds.

The sounds work good right now, EXCEPT the tires blowing up when being removed with a tool. Im having a hard time understanding why people think its normal having tires exploding more than one time each, and that it in the first place blows up when removing the tires bolts and lifting it off like any other vehicle in this world. 

And having a hard time understanding why its ok to raid a house for hearing vehicle's tire popping. RP wise they dont know anything about what might go on in there. A regular man working in 7/11 might be working on his bike inside his own personal garage. A father might change from winter tires to summer tires. using tires popping as a reason to raid is using OOC knowledge that it 100% must be a chop to their IC advantage.  Just like we cant rob people at Humane Labs, even tho they are buying ingredients for an illegal activity and we know it OOC wise but not IC wise including cameras, people working and etc at Humane.  What about having people break into random houses for hearing one single vehicle's tire exploding 30 times in 3 minutes.  ONE single vehicle tire can only blow up once, then its out of air and simply cannot blow up more. 

If i walk around in a forein neighbourhood, i walk past a garage and hear the sound of a vehicle tire popping/popping noice.  Im not gonna automaticly know he is stealing cars, chopping them and selling parts.  Thats the last thing i would think off, its not justifiable thinking that, its assuming and fail rp.   BUT if i walk in the same neighbourhood or camp a house i have a sus on. I personally see cars going into the garage and never comming out again "or they watch a person lockpick a car and bring it to the garage" THAT is a good RP reason. 

 

This is how the sounds should be if it were realisticly
Removing doors, panels, wheels shouldnt make much noice at all as we are using manual tools to remove and lift it off. That doesnt make much noice, depends on how rusty the bolts are. But still shouldnt be loud enough to blow through thick walls 5-10 meter out from that wall and out on the street. 

When you start using the engine hoast there should realisticly be some metal hitting eachother and rope sounds as the engine often is tight placed in the vehicle.

Then the Saw which is automatic and makes a loud noice. Which it does ingame with the heavy metal crushing sound when cleaning/cutting. 

But when the vehicle tire is the loudest sound of them all, most loud, goes the longest distance and etc. You should see that something is wrong, and people are using it to raid it and be completely ok. 

If the tire popping cant be removed, it should be clear that its not a valid reason to raid. That does not give them a reason to believe an illegal activity is going in. 

The Chop shop update was to involve more players and more RP scenarios.  If RP is to drive past a house, hear an vehicle tire's explosion, i raid it.  Thats incredible poor RP with 0 exculation and reason.
