  5. I'm assuming this is the header you are referring to.Everything lines up really nicely and is in one row beneath the top menu. The size of the image links don't adjust when you change the size of your window unless you reach a point (for me just above half screen) or are on mobile then the links disappear all together.
  6. The results of these polls was announced in the community meeting but in case you were not there and have not seen the community meeting notes here are the results. Should player reports be privatized? Result- No, we already have the issues tab if someone wants it private. If you would like to make a private player report- Use the same player report format Include your name A private message will be sent from the Admin team to the players involved so it can be handled privately. Repair costs? Result - Could be reduced a little. Costs have been reduced by 90% since the last community meeting and is currently active. Mechanics will still make it cheaper. Key Cards? Result - Punish those who are excessively rob or are robbing with no RP Still in discussion on how to proceed with this.
  7. Additional important information provided from the DOJ meeting

What is the point in playing here if you aren't enjoying it. The balance comes from the grind provided by the professions system, the debt system, police RP, and medical RP. It is becoming clear that the player ran economy isn't working. Profession system The profession system was created with the intention to prevent players from being jack of all trades and promote player interaction with a player ran economy. The professions system also offered perks/bonuses if you stuck with one job. We has staff began the in depth look at the profession system. How to open more room for RP and not restrict so much to the professions, jobs, make everything so heavily tied to professions and manufacturing/crafting. Right now everything is restricted to a small frame for RP and we want to allow more room for RP to grow. Just about everything requires crafting and manufacturing. By reducing this you open more room for RP Some changes to the profession system was already being worked on and you will see some of those changes coming up soon. Our Developers are looking at a few of the options we discussed in the staff meeting to see what we can do to open things up more. Whitelist Jobs (Mechanic/Tow Truck, Pilots) Debt system We have been looking at everything people have been saying. The biggest complaints were: It was suddenly dropped It wasn't suddenly dropped. It has been mentioned periodically over the year. Even if we said you have two weeks before this goes in, it would have caused the same reactions and server actions. The dealership no accepting cash payments This is a valid point, however the reason it was implemented was because if you have 200K for a car, you have 200K for your debt. You can still rent cars, have friends purchase the vehicles for you, purchase cars from others. Debt forgiveness is not something we can do at this time. This would require a lot of time to look into We are looking into new ways to pay off fines and reducing how much is accumulated over time. DOJ is having a meeting and reduction of lesser crimes is a topic. Police RP and Imbalance A feeling that there is not an equal chance for a win. Any situation should allow 50/50 chance. Police have flash bangs, however criminals have Molotov Molotov's have to be crafted (another point of the grind factor). It takes roughly 1 hour to make 1 Molotov. Yes they are a one hit KO but they are very difficult to aim and have a small radius. Only 4 members of LEO are certified to use flash bangs, but training's are intended. Anyone can shoot out of a car, but LEO must be certified. Several situations recently that have left people feeling like cops don't want to give any chances to criminals. Known to exceed 8 max SOP - calling in additional in situations Criminals can and have also been know to call in additional Gangs are allowed 12 in group 8 max when committing major crimes. Major crimes according to Rule 21 are Bank and Jewelry Heists Requested that cop shoot outs be included as a major crime. It is believed that this should not be allowed by either cops or criminals to call in more help, but no decision was made. Excessive actions - Spike strips in all directions, 6 car chase after a store robbery Robo Revive - Get shot, heal at hospital, return to scene like nothing happens. It was questioned if this was ethical and a large discussion happened. Mistakes happen IRL and happen in game also. Talk to someone before you accuse them of doing wrong no matter what side of the line you are on. Medical RP It was reminded that according to rule #8: You are expected to role play out both your afflicted and voluntary injuries realistically and any consequences that your injuries involve. ( This includes lying to EMS/LEO about your injuries) This includes after healing. It happens a lot that EMS take people to the circle and suddenly they are up and sprinting out the door after saying they are bleeding out, have been shot multiple times. Why are we asking cops to stop RoboRevive when Civs/Criminals do it too. Medical RP information is easy to find and available on the forums A lot was discussed regarding medical RP for more information please listen to the recording (starts at 52:30 and goes until 1:24) LEO LEO applications are open again >HERE< LEO/CIV meeting in September Recording >HERE< EMS EMS is actively hiring >HERE< Had a lot of recent promotions and so you should see more paramedics out and about. DOJ DoJ is always recruiting >HERE< Judge elections Need more people versed in the DoJ who can step up to the plate. Would like to add more to the roster Civic court and other avenues DOJ keeps balance Code of Law is going under a revamp View change log >HERE< When it comes to the debt system they are keeping an eye on it. Unable to do anything RP wise for debt forgiveness at this time but is being looked into. Will be looking at fines in the DoJ meeting 09/16/19 Appreciate all those who participate with court RP It does take time due to the small DoJ roster Topics that were discussed and can be listened to in the recording: Change the limit to 4 criminals and 3 cop vehicles Safe/Green zone (No Crime) at the hospital is this restricting RP? Being taken to discuss in the next staff meeting. Housing/Storage Offline Jail Timer How can we be a serious RP server with Vampires, Androids, and Racoons. Tuning Chips How do you see the population living in Los Santos? How do you use this when interacting with people? When/How to value a hostages life. Where is the line for NVL? Downed/Critical and Alone. Mandatory airlift taking items?

  10. August Community Meeting Recording can be listened to >HERE< Community Announcements Meta Gaming - There has been a lot of outside talk of meta gaming happening, but none of it is being reported. If you believe someone is using meta'd information. Please bring it up to one of our staff members so it may be investigated and addressed. We cannot put a stop to it if it is not being reported A question was raised after the community meeting about being able to use someone's stream to report Meta without permission, but still requiring permission for player reports and such. There were 3 topics brought up that requested polls be posted on the forums. Privatizing Player Reports, Repair Costs, Police Key Card. Please see >HERE< for additional details and a polls.

RP guide, How to get started, Navigate the forums, ETC. Lack of Communication to the community - It was brought up there was a lack of communication to the community by staff. This is primarily a result of server members being told the server was coming down and to wait for word from Floppy before getting back on and then no word happening before the server went back up and them feeling cheated when losing queue spots by waiting. This is something we will strive to do better as a team in making sure everyone is equally informed. Request for an update on the "Server 2 Challenge" Posted on the forums. This is a topic regularly being discussed by staff. LEO LEO applications are open again >HERE< LEO/CIV meeting Recording >HERE< Medical RP by LEO Was discussed in the LEO/CIV meeting and will be worked on.

Onesync
  11. There were 3 topics brought up in yesterday's community meeting that majority felt the entire community should have a chance to weigh in on. Please read through each section and select your options on the poll. Discussion will be allowed in the comments as long as it is kept civil. Privatizing Player Reports - There have been some questions regarding keeping these things private. Community members have voiced being hesitant and reluctant to post player reports due to the salt fest or undue attention that usually arise from them. This has also been the case with why people have avoided speaking to other players OOC before placing player reports. Reminder from the community manager - If you do receive harassment please speak up. Rule #8: We have ZERO tolerance for racism, sexism, homophobia, abuse, and/or harassment. Your immediate and permanent removal from the community may result. The general idea of how it would work is the accuser would submit a player report which would only be visible by the OP and the Mod/Admin team accounts. They would then create a private message between the involved parties so the accused may be able to defend themselves. Keeping the report in private setting. During the community meeting people seemed split or impartial. Some cons that were brought up: 1. People could still find out anyway because we are a small community and rumors spread like wildfire, so if it's not public things may be obscured and wrong information given. 2. We have the issues tab already. The only problem with this is the OP/Accuser is kept anonymous so it is difficult to reach out with further questions unless they give their name. 3. Someone who may have seen the situation and have information may not be able to know it was reported and be able to speak up. 4. People may feel staff aren't doing their job if action is not shown publicly. We are not required to prove action was taken, but we have been getting called out for not doing our jobs cause you don't see all the back side stuff being done. Repair Costs - "Along time ago the community talked alot about not wanting this to be all about grinding, yet that what people do since the repair costs are so high. Almost 2 weeks ago it was stated in the patch notes and by developers on the forum, that the repair costs would be reduced due to the issues with desync. We have yet to see any significant reduction in repair costs and the desync is still a thing. My question is; When will the repair costs get reduced to more acceptable level? Right now it's unfair to pay 5-10k for a vehicle that randomly starts smoking without getting a scratch or bump." Desync is client side and can not be fixed. Handling is under constant development and there are constant development. Developers would need more finite detailed issues around what it is that is destroying your vehicles in order to tweak things. What vehicle, circumstance around the incident An attempt to make sure teleport locations (storage) don't cause vehicle damage is being made. There is a logical reason why the costs are the way they are. It isn't just deciding to charge a random large amount. Key Card Abuse - "Key card abuse is crazy, how key cards are all the same and never change encryption. No where in the real world would you have a key card system that could not be re-encrypted if compromised. You have criminals stock piling cards like guns and can just use another one after another one if their last one gets taken away. Honestly it's effed up. Been saying this for a while." This is something that has been extremely abused and cops are getting robbed multiple times a day, EVERYDAY. It is ridiculous that they can be stock pilled and never expire. Devs are cautious because this may seem like favoritism to cops and they are already accused of this. The constant robbing is lacking RP, no one is robbing with reason but to stockpile key cards. Cops are getting burnt out of this constant behavior. It is not conducive to a healthy RP environment On the other side if they are expiring won't they get robbed more? This does not feel like a win mentality but goes more along the lines of the more serious RP we strive for on the Revo server. Could a compromise be met regarding the key cards. Like changing it randomly so there is an expiration on it. Crims keep stockpiling them. Would a way to reduce being able to stock pile them work as a compromise? At the most 1 on your person and 1 in storage (option suggested) Devs are not sure what kind of encryption change are possible, but if the community is okay with moving forward with a compromise system they would look into options for coding this.
