    2. To anyone that really posts on the forums, I don't want anyone to ever feel like we're gonna bash someone for sharing a constructive opinion. Typically that comes from people firing out threads ranting until their fingers go purple from typing out a really long angry curtain call. With this, I don't think that's the case but I am indeedy, one person. I would of course, do my part as a player primarily just voice my points as well since forums are a place for big discussion. So with big discussion comes big responses because that's how I do. So let's get started. I do believe and I can definitely say from me having the honor to be in a position to see all parts of the city in equal light, I know deep in my heart, that people made the best decisions they could with the information and resources at hand to make things better for their corner of the city, I guess a portion of the initial problem we deal with on the daily is that it does develop small tiny closed groups in the city, crushing inclusion which is a key part of roleplay. I can see that from the numbers alone, being a logitistical nightmare that would not be easy to set up, nor would it become really the discussion that solves all our problems. We do hear our players across discord, the forums, tickets, streams and their general feelings on things and that ideally helps us determine what is right or wrong for the community however guaging that exact yes/no factor on if something is good or bad isn't really something we can nail each time. It's not like we're reading analytics off a page nor is it impossible. It's just difficult to get right every iteration we try to take the server. I've also heard the doomcries of many players. They scream to us to give them the saving grace and truly I say this. What or whom are we trying to save? The performance of the server boxes? That's always been the priority and required more than just funding a box and plugging and playing with resources. The players from breaking rules? If we removed players any faster with our strict system. No one would be left and we've had to very much since the instantiation of this system take absolute full discussions on roleplay situations to determine if it contributes to a healthy or toxic server The mechanics and how much you can do in the city? This is a 50/50 because we create the sandbox and the players imagination fills the gaps on that. We can't make the players creative but we can definitely keep pushing for things to allow for more flexibile and enjoyable roleplay. Every step that management can take on their end to fix things, we do it as much as we can, every single day of the week. In the end, we can't make players roleplay, we just moderate, supplement and support players where possible to help reach that goal. With every game, there are trends, highs and lows. No game stays actively hyped forever, you can even see that same effect across a lot of the FiveM communities. I wouldn't say that we're dying more than any other server but we are feeling a bleed-off this time of year like we have like for like every year. Some people come in and try out RP, some people after a long time hang up the roleplay cape and move onto other games or interests. I would probably sooner kick a wall until my foot goes numb than say management isn't active. I think the demand from players on management has definitely increased and we're seeing us struggle to meet that demand at times. We haven't really dropped in what we can do for players, we're just always adjusting to ups and downs in busy periods for what we do behind the curtain. I do believe wholeheartedly that this is not an issue that the management team can solve for the community on it's own. You're 100% right, for a community to have good roleplay. It must have a community willing to work together to help solve problems like this. I know that discussing it will never be enough but it does fire up the need to draw attention to this. As always. management is here to help in however we can. That has never changed and I don't think anyone really understood where the phrase "wElL if tHeY doNt LiKe iT, tHeY cAn fUcKiN lEaVe" came from. AFAIK, it was always directed at a few portion of players that wanted this city to be their personal sandbox and made frequent demands of players and management to do what they wanted, not what others wanted. We stood by the principle that this city is for everyone, not for a small few to enjoy. As always, love me a good discussion. Have great days and happy lives!
    3. If I hear one more motherfucker tell me their Speed Unit can't brake fast enough into the motorway barriers. I may commit murder. Committing to these changes may require consistent, direct and specific information to be given to Nardah as what Soledad said. We'll definitely need to revert to a baseline before we can start the changes and it would take a hot minute to fully incorporate.
    4. Hello everybody! It's your favourite guy in a box. Today I'd like to push for a fix to the cinematic bars. As you can see from this image (Don't mind the black box in the chat) There's various elements that are not hidden while cinematic mode is enabled. 1. The chat bar (Top Left) 2. Your current cash (Top right) 3. Your meters and chat status (Bottom left) 4. The FiveM build information (Bottom right) Currently this can look a bit broken if cinematic is enabled so my suggestion/request is to put the cinematic mode IN FRONT of all these elements so they're hidden. Chat can be temporarily hidden if you disable it but if you attempt to type anything in there, it'll just come right back. I'm a massive fan of the cinematic bars and it's a really cool feature. However when the cinematic bars look overlayed by everything else, it just looks borked. #MakeCinematicGreatAgain Thank you for taking the time to read this /me drops mic.
    5. Hi folks. I do some digging, I find some things. These are generally things I've found that would be roleplay-friendly additions to the server.

    6. Hi there. I'm Vexx and this is a proposal about [Insert title here] The problem Right now, we have our businesses and various other ads split across the forums as well as advertised primarily in-game through twitter as a form of digital thing. I realised at the moment, we use GCPHone or a similar name. Can't remember it off the top of my head but hey. Right now, we don't have a specific way to collectively keep all the advertisements in a complete in-character way or at least try and move these kinds of things in-game to clean things up a bit. SO...Summary of that. Advertisements of any kind are not entirely kept in-game The phone doesn't have a specific function to do present these ads to us in a more organised manner. The solution! (Or at least, my prophesised fix) Update the GCPhone to the latest version and clone Twitter with a UI rework to include a yellow pages app. It would involve both changing the GCPhone from old to new as step 1 where step 2 encompasses creating the new app on the updated foundation. I believe this to be semi-reasonable and not overtly like an overkill thing to ask for. I've attached what I believe to be GCPhone 3.0 https://github.com/manueljlz/gcphone/tree/master/resources/gcphone/client The issues in implementing the solution that I'm aware of: Firstly, the app seems to be partially written for spanish users. I totally would not ask Tardis to assist in this as a native speaker to help format the spanish into an english translation. Secondly, ensuring that the update does not break upon implementing. I would be happy to assist in debugging and testing to help troubleshoot the problems that we had testing another phone a long while ago. Thirdly, creating the Yellow Pages app. After some experience in our prior UIs. Developing the exact menu is a lot easier for me this time around to assist in the implementation of it. Lastly, why should we? The phone is quite old and it's not seen some love in a long while. I feel that both the update and a new app would rekindle our love for it and hopefully fix a few other issues we have with it. It's a very integral part of a character and I would love to see the business/ad side of things be more openly available across the city in a nicer and more collective format. Tl;dr We have old phone, I find new version of same phone. Let's add new phone so we can then add yellow pages app and support businesses in a way that doesn't involve forum related sales or advertisement. Thanks for reading, I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on it.
    7. Welcome to the community! We hope you enjoy your stay
    8. The ability to customize the interior of a car model would require it to be compatible with native modification. It'll more than likely be a case by case basis of what cars we can and can't customize to what extent.
    9. Seems like a decent idea. High frequency dispatches make hearing things problematic
    10. I've found the RP in Brooklyn to be always a lot better. You tend to see familiar faces a lot more and it generally leads to more fun roleplay but that's just in my own opinion
    11. Good find! Every job that provides a service should in reality be substituted out for players when they're around. With this. We can at least cover the quiet periods and avoid people needing to be asking emergency services for rides.
    12. Yeah! The NPC could be random. Sometimes they're in, sometimes they're not. That unknowing really adds to the risk of the burglary! Some stealth to the game when the NPC is in could make it really fun without you just walking in and yanking their shit. I was keen on the lockpicking mini-game and that's a really good start to the house burglaries. We just need to push the idea a little further and flesh out a really in-depth Thief like experience.
    13. Hi, I'm Vexx. I'm a cool guy. I recently had this eureka moment while I was writing up some stuff for a character I had in the mix. For those that don't know, I spent more time helping people create really cool characters and support them in really taking their roleplay to the next level. (If by now, you think I'm doing a sales pitch. I promise I'm not selling anything.) The idea was simple. What if I could create a little group workshop that was outside the constraints of roleplay and focused entirely on group supported improvement of a player's roleplay? I got some feedback from Discord (I think it was feedback?) and I've decided to set up the first workshop to see how things go. Here's the rough gists: What is it?: This is a voice only group meetup on the BCRP's Teamspeak where we help each other improve our roleplay through various topics I'd set up each week or so. When is it?: It's currently going to happen within three days of this posting. To get a feel for a headcount before I organise it. Contact me on Discord to find out when it's going to happen -> Vexx#0001 Where is it?: It'll be hosted in a private channel we have in the Teamspeak itself. (Vexx's Olympus Incarnate) How will it work?: Think of it as a big player discussion/critique where we as a group try to improve our abilities to roleplay. Trust me, you can tell the difference between good and bad roleplayers. It's typically based on how much fun you're having funnily enough! For any questions, I can answer them here! Happy roleplaying!
    14. Hello peoples! Had a little thought to change the tone on the forums recently with a little question I'd throw out once a while to see what kind of discussion we can get going on this. So... this week's question is: What's your favorite inside joke from the community? For me, it was about a year ago. I was spouting off my random bullshit ideas again and out of the blue, Crunch says "Vexx. I need to you just climb into a box and close the top". So, I decided to carry this joke to the MAXIMUM. I got a Fiverr artist to draw a literal box with eyeholes cut out and use this as my avatar for the next while. All of my dealings with people, I maintained the fact I was in this box and some community members even tried to start a cult following to #FreeVexx. It was glorious and it still remains a joke today. You can find an emote in the Discord and on Bau wearing the same box art. It's pretty cool. Let's hear your story to answer the question!
