    So if I'm correcting, APC must always value the lives of the hostage during hostage situations right? The problem is? Thanks to medics, the hostages will always survive even if the kidnapper shoots them all in the head due to APC not complying to demands, attempting to storm the building, etc. I think that a new option should be added where a kidnapper can 'execute' a restrained hostage which will instantly kill the hostage and skip the incapacitated state. This will encourage the APC to actually plan a strategy on how to arrest the kidnappers without endangering the hostages or comply with the demands if there is no way to retrieve the hostages safely. This will also ensure that the APC will try their hardest during negotiations. Right now APC can just skip negotiating and inmediately try and taze/kill the kidnappers since all they have to do is call a medic to get the injured hostages back on their feet again should they get the hostages killed. What do you think?

  4. So today I did a couple of gas station robberies with 2 hostages at each robbery. What I noticed is that the APC behavior on each robbery can vary very differently. For example: Encounter 1: I started robbing a gas station with 2 hostages. The police arrived with guns pointed at me but once I made it clear that I had 2 hostages they stopped aiming at me and lowered their guns. A police officier entered the building and we started negotiating. I demanded free passage + 50k ransom money. The officier agreed to this and handed over the money. After that I told him that I would release 1 hostages and let him free and that the remaining one would come with me when I drove off. I would then drop the hostages off 100 meters down the road. The officier agreed to this and everthing went smoothly. They tried to chase me at the end a couple of times but they failed. The officiers valued the hostages life and did not attempt to shoot me. I was keeping a close eye on all the officiers at all times while having a hostage as meatshield. Encounter 2: Same as encounter 1, I rob the gas station with 2 hostages, police arrivés, we start negotiating. I had the exact same demands as encounter 1. The officier told me that he would fetch the money. Before he left to get the money, I asked him to tell all the blueberries at the scene to stand down (there were quite a few bluberries running around and I got a little nervous. I told him that if anyone opens the backdoor or shoots at me, the hostages die. The negotiator told me that they would not do anything and that I had nothing to fear. So negotiator leaves to get the cash. Eventuelly said nogotiator returns with the promised money. In return I unrestrained 1 hostage (just like in encounter 1. A few seconds after unrestraining him, I heard the back door open and heard gunshots behind me. Apparently 2 blueberries attempted to shoot/tase me. I inmediately grab the remaining restrained hostage and use him as a meatshield. The blueberries continue shooting so I shot one of them down. I eventuelly got tased and restrainend. The hostage apparantly was injured from being the meatshield but was not incapacitated. They brought me to the police station where the blueberries procceed to blame me for shooting one of the blueberries down when they tried to shoot me. Afterwards, I was sent straight to jail but they did not seize my stolen money (110k in total). So my question is, what are the general guidelines for the APC when dealing with hostage situations? Are they allowed to just storm the building like that when hostages are involved or were the blueberries violating rules by not fully valueing the hostages life's and obeying their higher-up? Is encounter 1 the best example for the APC when dealing with such situation or was encounter 2 the better solution for the APC on resolving the situation?
  5. So earlier today i made a plan on how to perfectly take a hostage and get out with the money. I then proceded to take a cop hostage (unfortunately only a PCSO) and got 20 grand for him, uncluding some drink and a snack. I went to my escape route and got out without any cops being able to chase me and let the PCSO go. I hid my mask and gun in my backpack and went to an ATM so store my money. I deposted the money, with an extra 190 pounds i had on me and thought: "Hah, theres no way they can find me now if i mix into the crowd. They dont know my name. I was wearing a common outfit and i had a mask on during the hostage situation." So then i thought: 'What if, like in real life, the police had some way to see if you suddenly deposited a lot of money in your bank account." Off course they would be able to see every deposit and the amount and maybe even the location. so if I got 20 grand off a hostage, I would need to wait with my deposit or they would see: "hey mr Abou Toblow deposited 20 grand in a Kavala ATM, right after we gave him 20 grand for a hostage near kavala." That way they know a name and a location of the hostage taker, so the hostage taker would still need to be careful and get out of there swiftly. It would make hostage situations more realistic and more of a challenge to remain anonymous for the hostage taker. This would force both the hostage taker as well as the cops to put more thought into a hostage situation. The tracking would be very simple. In every police station there is a laptop used for looking at the cameras in the Neochori bank and the Royal Mint. There would be another option that would open an interface where they can get a list of all bank transactions in the last 15 or 25 minutes (the time would depend on how hard it is for the server to keep track of this) and they would see an amount, a name, a time and a location of the transaction.
  6. Just another little video I've put together. Feat Dominico Morello, David [The Police] and a couple others at the end. Hope you guys enjoy Episode 8 :).
  7. Managed to survive an encounter with TJM without having to shoot my way out. Nice not to kill people for once :P http://raptr.com/jackster100/news/54574903eedba415a4/taken-hostage-by-tjm Be warned: Rather low quality (720p apparently) and my mic is really loud - I should really lower the volume a bit. Just thought I'd share this as I managed to rp and survive - without just getting RDM'd by some random noob for once.
