  3. As suggested by the community, a thread where you can express compliments on roleplay publicly towards other players. Please @ the people you're talking about so they are tagged and get a notification of your compliment. If you want to post anonymously, just DM it to myself and put the subject as "Roleplay Compliment Thread". Positivity Only
  4. Dear Revolution Community, Over the past few weeks as the Senior Admin here, I’ve noticed a lot of things about the way that people have begun to roleplay and what has become acceptable in this community. These are not positive things, and they are all mentality issues in regards to roleplay. I wanted to write this letter as a way to try and connect with those issues, address them, and maybe offer up some additional insight from someone that has roleplayed and been a big part of this community for over 3 years now. It has always been the biggest joy in my life to lead this community and be the person that is always open to discussing everything with each and every one of you. Know that my door is always open for you guys, and I will continue to hear you guys out and take what you have to say to heart. I will continue to go to bat for each one of you to make this place the best it can possibly be. I am writing this letter in part because I don’t know how else to express to everyone what these issues are, and how we can collectively go about fixing the state of roleplay here. I want Revolution to continue to grow, improve, and be a home base for continuing the amazing stories that we’ve all been writing all of these years. I am begging this community. Please, listen to what I have to say. Even if you feel like your roleplay is perfect, please still try to take something away from this. See the different perspective, be willing to admit that no one is perfect, and we all have room for growth. That we all have room to help each other grow and expand, and most of all, have fun. 1. Let’s talk about the box truck issue. This is one of those things that is so commonplace now, that it seems normal. We’ve also discussed having the ability to put people in vehicles, and what the heck is going on with that? The box truck problem is way bigger than the majority of people realize. As an EMS, I probably see the effect of the box truck issue more than any other department or person on the server. Most of you just think that you use it for the dire situations to help your buddies who are injured try to escape some jail time. In reality, it is a chronic, widespread issue on the server. People use them when EMS are clocked in. We’ll go hours with 1-2 calls, but watch trucks and cars pull up and people being dumped into the hospital with no regard to roleplaying their injuries (which is where it falls into Fail RP). Even at these big shooting scenes, there’s no regard for ripping off a piece of your shirt to tie off the bullet wound. Just mechanically grab, jump, dump, and drive. Where is the roleplay in that? Now, I can also understand the other side of the coin. If we can’t help our guys, then what do you expect us to do? Isn’t it Fail RP that my gang-loyal character has to just walk away from their hurt buddies and not help them? Yes, I understand. We have discussed putting people in vehicles mechanically for all, and that is on the list of things to do, it just keeps getting pushed down the priority list. So what do we do in the meantime? After hearing out the Community Representatives, Admins will stop drawing such a thick line on this particular rule, up until the point where the regular mechanical feature is implemented. That will be fully explained in an announcement. To all of you that rage-quit out of the server the other day instead of trying to talk things out, or go to your Community Representatives – that does nothing to make this place better. If you’re angry about something: an Admin decision, things going on in the server, speak up. Be heard. At least help us try to fix what you perceive as being a wrong here. 2. (Box truck issue, extended) EMS are neutral, and we don’t utilize them enough The EMS department has fought LEO’s a few times over on their rule of neutrality. The EMS department prides itself on their stance on remaining neutral. On being the people that are just there to help you and to save lives, regardless of who the person is or what they have done. We want to do our jobs, we want to help save lives. We don’t want to be kidnapped to help you rob a bank or a store. But if you kidnap us to help your hurt friend, we’re there. Shoot, you don’t even have to threaten us. Just tell us what happened, and we’re there. That’s an EMS’s purpose. We will always care more about saving lives than getting anyone in trouble with the cops. 3. Selfish roleplay and how its only fun for you One of our biggest issues as a community right now is selfish roleplay. The kind of roleplay where only your needs matter, only your character matters, and only you are having fun. Every complaint I’ve gathered from criminal, civilians, cops, EMS, everyone, boils down to this. When you are roleplaying, everyone in the situation should matter. Consider how your character’s actions are going to affect other characters. Are you the only one laughing? Are you shutting down someone else’s roleplay just so you can come out on top? 4. Your character is a character. It isn’t you. (Also – taking IC to the OOC) For many, there is a thin line between the real you, and your character. It’s easy to fall into a trap of just playing yourself, especially considering Revolution might be the first place you’ve roleplayed, and its easy to have your first character be a reflection of yourself. But even if you’ve designed a character as a mirror image of yourself, you still need to separate what is happening in the game versus how you feel out of character. If you find yourself doing this, fill out a character sheet and stick to it. Change something about your character that makes them different then the real you. Find the separation. Without separation, you are bound to translate OOC feelings into IC feelings. When you play yourself, those aren’t two different things. In game toxicity, harassment, combat logging, “salty” behavior, has become some of our biggest complaints and reports within the last month. Why is it that every time you’re caught by the cops you berate them with every word in the book? Yell over other people to shut down everything their trying to say in the interaction? Push people to the limit of quitting because they can’t even interact with you? How is that enjoyable? Why can we not find a common ground to stand on that says – this is my character, and I’m here to roleplay with another person? 5. Gunplay > Roleplay, and what happened to the long-term stories? No one is scared of each other anymore, and no one is scared of guns anymore. We pretend that our characters value their lives, but then start shooting each other after saying nothing to two words. Why are we all so quick to pull the trigger? This is rampant on both sides, not just one. What happened to talking to each other before shutting down the roleplay with bullets? What happened to smart criminals that stalked you, got to know who you were, and figured out a way to hurt you beyond all comprehension by not even shooting you directly? There is no regard for long term stories anymore. Anyone who wants to start up something long-term generally gets shut down. Why? Why is everyone living for a few hours to do their daily motions, and not thinking about the rest of their lives? This is why we all keep getting burnt out on roleplay. This is why we need breaks, need to play other games for a while, need to step away to find the love in roleplay again. When you’re just here to exist for a few hours, and you have nothing drawing you back in for the long game, then you’re not going to want to come back. Set a long term goal. Start a long-term heist (yes, those resources ARE available to you). Start a long term story with someone. Make a new character with a long-term purpose. Expand your business. Be more than just a singular drone that is here just to clock in, or just to shoot cops and rob bank. Think about how everything builds up and should change your character’s goals and daily life. I may have gotten long winded. You may all just skim the points and not take the time to listen to me drone on. But again. I am begging all of you. Each and every single one of us are responsible for the status of the community. This is not just a place for the staff. Revolution is ALL of us, collectively, agreeing on a set of rules and making our own place here. Every single person matters, every single opinion matters, and every single character matters. Please, let’s collectively take this to heart, and try and make this the best fuckin place imaginable. With all my love, Ruby Blaze
  5. After a lengthy meeting between Admins and Community Representatives, the Admins have decided to not have as thick of a fail RP line on box trucks being used as means of transporting someone medically injured to the hospital. We've decided on the following compromises: If you use a box truck to help someone who isn't actively being chased by someone/cops/other criminals as a way to avoid medical roleplay and not roleplay your injuries, its Fail RP. If you use a box truck to help someone who is in danger of being caught by cops/others BUT take the time to at the very least provide that downed person some level of medical help, it isn't Fail RP. That being said, we do still beg of you. If you know there are EMS clocked in. Please drive them to a different location and call EMS. EMS are neutral and are only there to help you medically. Please stop eliminating a whole group of eager roleplayers from doing their purpose by just driving everyone straight to the hospital and flinging them in a bed. This compromise is only good up until the point where mechanically everyone can put people in vehicles. Once that happens, ALL box truck transports will return to being fail RP every time because of how it devalues the life of the person/their injuries. The timeline for being able to put people in any vehicle is roughly 2-3 weeks, as other things have been bumped into higher priority. We know this is something you guys really want and are working diligently to try and make sure we implement it correctly.
  6. We have determined our stability is good enough to increase the server restart time length. We will be restarting the server beginning tomorrow, 9 March 2020 and restarts will happen every 12 hours (instead of every 6 hours). Server restarts will now be every day at 3 AM EST and 3 PM EST only.
  7. Due to real life reasons, one of our Criminal Community Representatives has had to resign from the position. We are looking for your nominations for voting for this reason! You may nominate ONE person. If you are nominated, please reply whether you accept or deny the nomination. Requirements: Currently not a staff member Cannot have previously held a seat No disciplinary action in the last 6 months Must actively be playing in the server 3+ times a week More information about the specifics about what is required of the position can be found >>HERE<< Nominations will close on Monday, 9 March 2020. Voting will begin shortly after and conclude on Thursday, 12 March 2020. Everything will be posted in this thread/edits to this original post.
  8. At the urge of our community representatives, I have posted an addition to the reporting template & guidelines. This addition lays out all of the different ways you can report someone, or if you choose, other means of discussing the rulebreak with the individual. You can find that as a second post on the original template page (HERE)
  9. If there are any errors in the reimbursement system: Please take a screenshot of what it offers you Take screenshots of what the garage shows as different (proof of the difference) Fill out a compensation request Once you have all the evidence, you can return it and show proof, and we will compensate the difference
  10. ALSO: After the 9pm EST restart today (Feb. 20) ALL VEHICLES WILL BE MASS UN-IMPOUNDED so you can return those as well
  11. THE VEHICLE RETURN IS NOW OPEN 😭 You must drive your vehicle to the junkyard located in the city. The money will first go to your pocket, and then immediately be switched to your bank account. There will be a police presence for the first few hours at least.
  12. IMPORTANT UPDATE ABOUT MODIFICATIONS As of today, our wonderful developers have found a working way to automatically find and refund your vehicle modifications. This will happen at the same time that you sell back the vehicle, and will be a one-click for everything. IF YOU HAVE REMOVED MODS in preparation of this change already, you can use the compensation request on the forums to get that money back, and we apologize for the time you spent preparing that evidence. **Any current compensation requests that DON'T state that the mods were removed, will be denied. If you are denied and your mods were removed, please re-post your request.
  13. Q & A - last updated 18-Feb-2020 @ 1 PM EST Why is this compensation dependent on the player, but when you guys removed the Ram recently, you did it all? The Ram compensation for ~8 owners of the vehicle took >7 hours to complete. Over 7 hours for only 8 vehicles. We want this compensation to be done in a timely matter, so you're not waiting months for your money to be returned to you while our small staff team scours the database trying to get everything. This also ensure, as we are common with human error, the error of an overworked staff team potentially missing a part of something. This way - you know exactly what you're getting and what you're losing, because you personally tallied everything up. What if we already got rid of our upgrades to get an accurate price, and don't have screenshots? Provide all the evidence you possibly can. Screenshots are the best evidence possible. BUT if on the first day you did something else, we will take that into consideration (such as spreadsheets) but that will only be accepted for those who have asked permission ahead of time, and who did it on the first day. Please message me directly if you are part of this group of people who did it the first day and removed your upgrades. Why can't you automate refunding of modifications, if you're automating returning of vehicles? Can't you just automate registering the vehicles to their owners and all the upgrades? Coding wise for how modifications are stored connected to your personal vehicle, it is not possible to automate. Returning of vehicles is a simple you own it > connecting name to name in dealership > refunding that money. After tirelessly working - devs have found a way to automate the upgrade reimbursements. So you guys got the prices of all upgrades of all cars? We will be refunding a base price for all upgrades proven in screenshots. If you do not get exact figures, you will get the base refund. Can we get garage names for the names you put on the list? We will do our best to get that completed before Saturday. The way cars go in versus what they appear as in the garage is different and stored in different areas - so it will take some time to update the list. What is going to happen to the economy? There will obviously be a huge influx of money back into banks with the vehicle removal on such a short timeline. As we have been making adjustments to the economy over the past year to combat rising costs, this influx of money isn't going to directly affect the in-game price of anything. If you're worried about what you're going to do with the money, there are lots of options already in game, as well as things that are coming in future updates. Housing is still on the table for a future update. It has moved down the priority list of fixes, but it is still on the list. There will still be car updates and new vehicles! Consider investing the money into some fun roleplay idea. This would especially help our newer characters and newer players who have little to no capital. We are always exploring new options for spending money, and new features that could be a good roleplay sink. If you have any ideas, please post them in dev suggestions, or consider talking to staff or community representatives about your ideas.
  14. What is happening? All import vehicles on the list below will be completely removed from the game on Saturday, 22 February, 2020. How is this happening? On Thursday's (Feb. 20) patch there will be a place separate from the garages (TBD) where you can sell the vehicles back for their original sticker price. For modifications still on the vehicle - when you sell the car back, the modifications will also be automatically refunded Any vehicle modifications that have been removed in preparation for this - will need to have screenshot proof of amount, and be placed in a compensation request on the forums. On Saturday's (Feb. 22, Midnight CST) patch all of the vehicles will be removed disabled from being spawned. Anyone who does not use the in-game means of compensation in time can file their compensation requests via the forums. How long is it going to take to get my compensation? For any compensation requests submitted via the forums, it is going to be our highest priority to get them all pushed through. Please make sure you take screenshots and total up the amounts. Without screenshots, we cannot prove your claims, and your claim will be denied. From the date of posting, we are shooting to have the money compensated from 3-7 days. Why is this happening? There are several reasons why this happening, but more importantly why it is happening now. When the import vehicles were originally imported, there was no regard for how big the files were, and how long it took to render those files in the world. The original creators of the import vehicles had no regard for how GTA 5 handles vehicle renderings in the world. This wasn't immediately noticeable because we were still running on a 32 person limit. The rendering times were noticed when we switched to OneSync and continued to optimize so we could continue to increase our player limit. How do we know that it's the vehicles? There have been numerous reports of vehicles spawning invisible, vehicles not spawning at all, modifications and repairs not sticking to vehicles when put away in the garage, full world texture loss when vehicles were taken out of the garage, texture loss when driving vehicles, texture loss when coming close to vehicles, frame rate loss being around certain vehicles, frame rate loss driving vehicles, "headaches" in vehicles, among others. Once our developers looked at vehicles and broke down the rendering and textures, it was clear which vehicles were causing the issues. There is no way to fix them - as the vehicles themselves were modded elsewhere, and cannot be completely redone. Our only option is to remove the problematic vehicles, and hope in the future that modders are able to mod vehicles properly. I have questions?!?! Direct all of your questions to the Support room in Discord. Any questions asked there will be filtered into this post with answers so everyone can view them without having to scroll forever.
