  18. So the only reason you joined was because there wasnt enough ems on, not for role play or anything
  19. Los Santos Emergency Services - Resignation Form Callsign: - 4C-04 Name: - Zhao Cheng Lin Reason for Termination: - When I was playing around on my civ character, I used to die a lot and there weren't many ems or no one responded to my calls. So I got a bit frustrated and I gave up my civ character and signed up for ems. When I just drive around saving people and talking to them as RP, it's really fun but the job doesn't really fit right in my comfort zone. when I'm doing my job, it gets really boring but you still need to be alert ingame so that you make the fastest response possible but when you are waiting, you can't do much on your pc and when I'm on my phone I get distracted and doesn't work out. But before like I said, I only joined because there weren't enough people on as ems but now I think there is a sufficient amount and now I would like to have the freedom with my civ character. Sorry if I am resigning too recent but I have stated the reason above for why. Do you wish to return in the future? - Well if the same issue pops up again and again, then I'll probably join again stay for a month or two and wait for more EMS to join and maybe stay with that job and quit another job as a civ.

Prison breaks should not happen every single time someone is put in jail, but rather be a mini event, similar to Pacific Standard. We have also changed breakout script timings, Prison break script now has as an autolock feature on the gates, so after the third gate is opened, a 5 minute timer is started, after which the gates auto lock. EMS MDT will now be in full affect, with abilities similar to cops such as call history, quick call for PD / Mechanics / Supervisor. The difference being the EMS MDT does NOT include BOLOs. Obviously. /er changed to take words instead of a phone number. Example: /er Blake Sanderson EMS will now be able to see each other on the map PD can run license plate checks by manually entering a number plate (Rego Checks) New Additions Hunting Job New sub job, does NOT require you to get the job at a job center. The job is conducted in Paleto Bay, and the Chilliad Mountain Wilderness. You will be required to source your own weapon, and knife (now purchasable from Ammunation) BOLO System for Police Police will now have BOLOs in their menu, to keep track of criminals they are searching for. It stores information such as name, description and location. The police radars will also have the ability to detect vehicle BOLOs. They will be alerted if the vehicle in front has an active BOLO Server Event Over the next 12 days, there will be a Christmas themed scavenger hunt. Each day you will need to find visit Santa at legion square to get a hint, and locate one ped for a special item. After the hunt is complete, you can hand in your items for a reward! If you manage to collect every single item, you will also receive a bonus!
  21. Hi All! Sorry for the late notes. I promise this won't happen again until next week! As for changes, there was not a whole lot this week due to the dev team doing exams, going on holidays and becoming pro rocket league players... Changes Drug rehab center sell point disabled. This was never designed to be a spot where you could repeatedly sell drugs, and people exploiting the traffic forced us to remove it. At this point in time, there is no new sell location, however next week we will be shuffling the locations, and all existing drug locations and prices will be changed. A few changes to the PD cars, such as minor handling tweaks and livery changes. We I also accidentally made the City Raptor have no sound. The weather system has been redone, which now has presets, to avoid going from snowy to extra sunny... There is also weather forecasts from famous Aussie weather reporters, which will tell you the upcoming conditions. ELS was updated, ever so slightly less terrible Changed the clothing models for the duty belt and radio. They look awesome (pics at bottom) Option to remove all tattoos at tattoo shops. Note: this will remove all tattoos. There is no option to remove one, sorry!

  23. At this time a second Car dealer or Mechanic is not going to be implemented.
  24. "This is not an RP Server,this is a Life Server" -Staff Dosnt matter how hard you try or how good your RP is,you will always face punishments if your RP goes against the law. Sad to say but many people on this Server have no interest to do any actual RP. Especially not the Cops as they are understaffed and overwhelemd by the amount of BS the Players give them so they just try to get each call over whit asap but on the outher side the current generation is also poorly trained and many arent serious enought about it. Also you have to see that they try to walk a thin line of realism and fun in the game,wich is why SWAT also does normal Duties,also in the current state of the Server they need every officer they can get. Then you need to check your facts.. First being in Police isnt nearly the highest paying job the pay is actually pretty bad. Besides that the amount of Active Officers has ben pretty low lately.. "Asspulling" isnt a thing anymore everyone can have 1 two handed weapon slinged to his back,this also counts for Civilians further the Rules that favor the Police is not because they want an unfair advantage but its due to how the Players on this server act. Specificly the Rule to comply whit police for misendamors. It was lifted a Month back and the entire Server became a Pursuit Simulator as literally no one would pull over anymore and instead imidiatly run. The Police and the Staff simply respond to how the Civs play. As an example from me whenever i try to Detain someone while holding a Tazer at them they imidiatly attack me or pull a gun due to that next time i will use a Lethal Weapon instead. Cops arent OP they can be easily outgunned and outplayed but people just go yollo it if they actually put togheter a plan they can easaly succed. Also i know its a huge issue whit Corrupt Cops, that is a thing that can only be dealt whit IC wich complicates it imensly. And i agree and even expect Staff to slowly start dealing whit it themselves as it completly destroyes the server and is a downwards spiral as when civs see the cops not following laws they wont either. Whit the Drugs i totally aggree. The new server was supposed to discurage illigal activities and hostile RP instead it did pretty much the Oposite. But i have started taht topic plenty of times but Staff does not want to change anything.
  25. The server obviously revolves around the police, usually the majority of the players on the server at any one time are police, they are the highest paying job on the server (despite them having terrible pay in real life), and they get rules specifically to benefit them and only them, such as being able to ass-pull 2 handed weapons, having a rule that forces people to pull over in traffic stops (literally the definition of 'power gaming'), and getting cars that can hit lightspeed in half a second. They also break the very laws they are supposed to enforce all the time, usually road rules, and just because they're cops they get absolutely zero repercussions. I also see 'SWAT' officers pulling people over and doing simple traffic stops and whatnot all the time, which is NOT what Swat officers should be doing and is extremely unrealistic RP, but nobody seems to care because, y'know, they're cops. Realism and 'roleplay' gets thrown out the window when it comes to cops on this server. But sadly, this seems to be the trend on nearly every RP server out there, the cops are the main aspect and everything else revolves around them. Another thing that I don't agree with is drugs, and how they basically make up the entire economy on the server. If you want to be rich on this server, you have no choice but to get into the drug business, or at least it is BY FAR the quickest way to get rich. Sure, it's illegal, but I rarely, if ever, see cops actually bust people for trafficking drugs, and even if they do, chances are that person is already filthy rich so whatever fine they might get doesn't even phase them. The highest paying legal job I know of is fishing, and even if you spend 2 hours straight getting fish, you'd be lucky to get 200k, but in the same amount of time with drugs, you'd probably make 500k. For me at least, it really takes away from the RP knowing that practically everyone driving expensive cars/bikes around are most likely drug lords. There is no variety in the roleplay, and most of the legal jobs become obsolete after you've made enough money to start buying and selling drugs. There needs to be more risk surrounding drugs. If you get caught, you shouldn't just get a fine and then be thrown in jail for like 20 minutes, you should have that character thrown in prison for days, and in the meantime, you have to play on a different character. Or maybe have it so known criminals can have a tracker (an ankle monitor) put on them, which shows the cops where they are at all times which would make it much harder for them to engage in illegal activities in the future. At least that way you'd actually be discouraged from doing illegal stuff, instead of being encouraged, and the variety of roleplay would be greatly increased instead of the server being a police and drug lord haven. But as much as I'd love to see drugs on the server get nerfed, if it means making the cops EVEN MORE OP, then I'd rather them stay as is. Whinge over. Sorry for hijacking the thread.
  26. As someone who has been on different role-play servers for nearly 5 years, it disappoints me to have to have this whinge. (petty bitch incoming). Role-playing becomes very boring and stagnant if you power game or don't let the role-play "work itself out". What do I mean by this? "Power-gaming (or power gaming) is a style of interacting with games or game-like systems, particularly video games, board games, and role-playing games, with the aim of maximising progress towards a specific goal, to the exclusion of other considerations such as storytelling, atmosphere and camaraderie. Due to its focus on the letter of the rules over the spirit of the rules, it is often seen as unsporting, un-fun, or unsociable." By definition, going by the 'rules' one hundred percent of the time is just repetitive and boring. I do not mean server rules, they should be followed 100% of the time. My complaint is about the way certain players use their powers as Police officers. This evening I was playing as a homeless ex-vet. I was stumbling around the street and was role-playing as a bit of a bum. The cops arrived and threw the public intox spiel at me. At one stage I did use the /me smells of alcohol. Rather than offering assistance in the form of a hotel / support services, I was arrested and taken to the police station, fined $1,000 and thrown in jail. Let me reiterate... I was a homeless character without a home or money... and had been fined $1,000. The first breathalyzer was role-played as 0.00 BAC. The officer went out to his car and brought in his alleged 'infallible' breathalyzer. Again it was role-played as 0.00 BAC. The officer then said "I don't know what device you're looking at... mine says 1.07". I believe this would come under 'power gaming'. My intention with the character was to pose as previously a drug addict however the role-play was essentially cut. My main concern isn't that I was fined or what not. It was the fact that the police (it may be a small percentage) rarely break from their plastic mould of 'law book'. I would ask that there be more compromise and open ended roleplay enjoyed. A second issue I have. There was a situation shortly after the above where both myself and another were arrested for seperate offences (him GTA, me allegedly firing a gun in public). The other guy was taken to jail essentially immediately whilst I stood on the side of the road with the Officer I was being arrested by while he waited for a lift back to PD. When I was finally processed and put in jail the other guy (who had the exact same length sentence) was already half way into his sentence. Now I understand there has to be jail and all of that good stuff. However as a civillian there is literally 0 roleplay possibility whilst standing in jail or being processed. I had been in cuffs for 10 + minutes, processed for 5+ minutes and then jailed for 10 minutes. I dunno ... I just feel a little discouraged about playing. Why would people want to play as civillian and roleplay a situation... if all that is going to result is 30 seconds of roleplay and then 25+ minutes of being in cuffs standing doing nothing. It's probably me being salty or a sore loser. Anyway... if you've got this far... thanks for reading my whinge / bitch. Have a good night.
