Option to see who killed as ID

Recommended Posts

Can police get a ctrl+x option on dead bodies and an option to say who killed him as ID so IB can roleplay fingerprints, CCTV footage and such? It would make more sense. We can drastically increase RP over every dead body in the city. That would give us more chances of RP. Also if you can tell what ID belongs to the dead person would increase RP chances as well

-1 this will just end up with some cops abusing this like it happens with running IDs through the MDC, whilst we all know it is MG and is not allowed it still happens.

Shit like that should be left to admin. 

Although, role-playing being dead could be interesting. Getting to rp a scenario of performing an autopsy with the "dead" person using /do etc.  Also would add more depth to investigations and such. But then we're left with, if the person is just RPing being dead....how do they RP their body being taken away as they cant just cancel the animation and run out of central MD.

-1 there should be zero OOC way to link an IC killer to an IC dead body. This would be blatantly mixed and abused. If you didn't see the killer then it's an IC issue that you can't carry out detective work against them. 

It's bad enough that people already get heavy charges placed on them with the minimal investigation rp of "/ldo would your fingerprints match in the mdc to bullet casings". 

Leave it to the admins with kill logs to assist situations like these, if and where it may be required. 

We should be encouraging not to use ID's to link with IC info, instead of the polar opposite, It's blatant mixing and there are other means to get to this goal.

I totally disagree with this suggestion.

The reason why is that criminals are going to be weak and cops are going to be OP. There is already a solution for this which is /ldo.

If cops can track who did it. Every criminal will be placed with charges and everybody is going to be wanted.

Well from all the replies. Almost everyone missunderstood the suggestion. You're not going to use the ID to abuse MDC and look him up through his ID. You'll get the ID to ldo with the ID that killed the man asking him questions for investigations for example: running his fingerprints on the dead body if he took his belongings without RPing sliding gloves on. Which brings great factor for RP here. Also it is realistic. I have never seen a crime IRL when no one witnessed the killer people just bag the body and throw it, calling it a day. Makes no sense. It's not a feature to be abused.

Cops will abuse it. The sentences and prison is already fucked up. We don't need another amazing feature to torture some players. It's not being used in any other server too and there is a reason for that.

This sounds really bad but do you expect people to do crimes and never get caught? Sad part about being a criminal is getting caught. You expect people to do crimes and enjoy their lives? They get tortured by being in jail which is fair. Rofl what you're saying is wanting a system where you cant get punished for crimes or crimes that its punishments is in seconds.

Let's not make inflammatory statements like that about other factions fella.

I agree with @CallumMontie - People already take dying out of character too much as is, not a fan of any suggestion that supports that further. If you need to know who did what for a forum report or whatever, then you can contact the staff.

I said “some” because I have only experienced a small amount of cops (1-5) abusing the IDs in MDC. A small amount of abuse is still annoying when it happens to you ya know

On one hand I agree, there is little room for IB and their investigations as it solely relies on the trust that other parties wont/aren't lying in /do

But it is a possibility it could be abused and used for metagaming.

Nice idea though!

Hello, thank you for your suggestion.

We are not going to be adding this option because unfortunately, people will end up using this to gain an unfair advantage or just maliciously in general. Instead, if a Detective wants to do this kind of RP, they can always coordinate with a staff member who can make sure that information given is not used maliciously and to anyone's unfair advantage, and purely for Detective RP.
