Personal Information

  • Character Name(s)
    Distritic Crews, Billy (Nasty) Long, Richard Brown
  • Character Background(s)
    Distritic has seen it all, from the lowest of the lowest to high-end businesses. Knowing he can't trust anyone, he keeps himself very wary of the people around him, especially while on-duty. Raised in a drug-addicted family, he is keen to end all the drug operations in the county. Now climbed up the ranks and ready more than ever to commit himself to the city.

    Nasty Billy is a homeless drunk after an IRS mishap, he turned bankrupt and is now living the streets. From his previous family life, Billy is greatly orientated in major crimes and gun violence with his son which he drag down with him. Billy has lost his wife before going bankrupt in a police shoot-out accident. Ever since, he formed a very strong passion against the authorities.

    Mr. Brown is an amateur lawyer who originated from Vice City - a spoiled child back in the days, his father, a notorious businessman, shaped his future for the best causing Richard to live the high life without having to achieve much. A court case has caused Richard to move to Paleto Bay so he can protect his family; after a corrupt police officer issued a bounty on him when Brown presented himself as prosecution at the Supreme Court against the officer. Brown's family is in witness protection completely separated from him, causing him to be able to focus on his professional life.

    Force DOA Characters

    No one should be forced to kill their character after any scenario, but it makes a good story when someone does, which is what the server should aim for. The death of a character can have a big impact on not only its story but the stories of the characters connected to it, which doesn't really happen much nowadays. I feel people are scared of change or trying something new in a new environment, kinda sucks. In general, my idea in a goal of a character is to provide others with an immersive experience and add to each others stories. Some people may not be able to expand their character further, simply due to influence of other characters. I feel not enough common sense and understanding is used when playing, where people focus more on winning than making a good story which benefits everyone. I also feel the city isn't a realistic state. Here, there is no balance for a character. How many locals have you killed just for their car? Nothing to do with your story, is it? If you decide to become a drug-lord, serial killer and gang member on a spree, the player behind this character should expect to be caught, short-lived and punished with a death penalty. There's plenty of rule limitations and lack of protocols which simply make this impossible without scripting, which is another limiting factor of expanding a character and building a story. I partly think it's a staff issue too, and that there isn't enough done to punish those who continually use mechanics like motorbikes to win and act like shitlords in-game, because it's lowest quality roleplay. Measures such as more grinding and a harsher economy are the only counter-action to this issue. This is why I think full-auto handguns are shit, and should be gone - it's just another mechanic which people use to win, win, win. Overall, the concept of making a story and developing your character is brushed off all the time. It's incredibly hard to encourage players to do this in a public environment, where everyone plays to win and 'own' the streets. I've watched countless streams of shitlords on motorbikes just driving off when cops pull up to a drug call. It's simply not roleplay, not making a story, not building a character. No interaction.

    Co-owner saves when you disconnect

    I believe this might be a bug, either way we're not too far off the update so it isn't something crucial. Thanks! You can find the list of changes here: https://trello.com/c/64d8kUqc/597-usarrp2

    My license plate keep changeing

    This is how car insurance works. If you lose a car and claim it, it will be a new car. Not the same one. Why? Because the car was lost, that's why it was claimed. If it wasn't lost you wouldn't have to claim it. When you lose a car, you lose the things in it. It's common sense. You don't get the same car back when you lose it... it doesn't magically reappear.

    failed handsake to server

    The server was most likely restarting, best thing to do is wait until it's back up. It should be fine now.

    Hmm, I think the script itself isn't quite fitting for a professional and serious roleplay server anyway. I'll take a look.

    Drug-Weapon Distribution Scheme

    Of course, but they won't get them for free lol? Everything will require effort, we want people to think twice before any actions - and value what they have. It won't be very hard to get an illegal firearm if you know the right places, along with the best ways to pay for it. That's something that requires a team effort which gangs can exactly put in. Again, nothing will be for free. California is very strict on gun laws, (which is where the server is based) and we fully want to support roleplay over gunplay. It's not fun for everyone to have guns and shoot each other all the time, since half the server can't respect the appropriate time and place to use one. People tend to shoot a local in a car just to steal their vehicle - not ideal, doesn't develop any story. It's just potato behavior. My point is, guns will be harder to come across because right now they're not respected for what they are enough and people use them for the most absurd reasons, which have nothing to do with developing their story or character. Yes you will most likely be able to have one, but you will need to treat it with more care and purpose - otherwise you'll see how quickly you lose it. There's much more to the server than guns, guns, guns. Just take a look at the medical logs, mostly gun wounds. Do we want to stop this or keep it up? Common sense. Also*, gangs are already doing great in keeping themselves going. There is absolutely no need to make it even easier for them, as right now it's merely possible for the police to stop them.

    Drug-Weapon Distribution Scheme

    In my opinion, gangs should utilise the already available mechanics to traffic and sell illegal products between themselves. There isn't really a need of another mechanic for it. We aim to develop characters along with their stories, not cause total gang occupation with firearms. It adds to the aspect of gunplay over roleplay which we're trying to counter. As for the update: There'll be opportunities for more crime such as burglaries and what not, but nothing more apart from that. A lot will detail in the state maintaining power over the city, as currently it is a huge struggle for law enforcement to actively engage in interactions without the use of a firearm. Weapons will be much harder to come across, where black markets are more expensive and Ammunation firearms are only obtainable when a Judge issues a firearms permit. Even when that permit is issued, all firearms will be tracked with a serial number; ultimately making it much harder to launder firearms. They will link right back to the person who purchased it, making it more of a burden when you give someone a gun recklessly without consequence. Worst case scenario you will be arrested for firearms laundering and have their permit revoked permanently. The economy will be completely redone from rock bottom, and people will need to be jobs much more often - be it legal or illegal. Each type with it's own pros and cons. More on this can be found on the Trello.
