  1. I was just thinking in whether it could be a cool idea to replace server 3 or 2 with a modded or white-listed server for more hardcore RP'ers or people looking for a modded altis life within this great community?
  2. Now this isn't a full on complaint about the ban or me having a go at anyone on the server so I'll clear that up now. Basically I am looking for some help/advice from some admins or more experienced players on this server (although I have been a member for over a year) on a situation that i was involved in with a mate that ended up getting us both 72 hour bans for fail rp. Now what happened is me and my mate had just spawned in Athira and decided to go and get my helicopter from the airport so we could fly down to the rebel store (south) and get some more mags for our guns. As we were flying near the rebel trader I was told my dinner was going to be ready in 5 minutes. I obviously couldn't have just logged off in the sky so me and my mate ([EWC] Biggle) worked out that rebel was the closest place that I could store my heli and log off. When we landed I stored my heli and there was one other guy (slightly kitted) at the trader and he said hi to us (was being a bit weird). We spoke to him for a couple of minutes and then I realised my family dinner would be ready very soon so we decided to run out of the the rebel store zone so we could log off. As we were out of the complex (just slightly) and about to log off the guy who we had just said bye too decided to drive his car up towards us. At first I thought he would just drive past but then he started circling me and my mate which was extremely inconvenient as we knew he had a gun and did not want to get held up and lose our gear; but we also really had to log off. My mate Biggle asked him to leave a few times however he just kept circling us almost expecting us to have to stand still to abort therefore giving him a prime opportunity to hold us up in the end my mate shot his wheels which led to the guy getting out of his car and killing both me and Biggle. He then handcuffed us and told us our comms had been taken but as the medic was 18,000+ km away and we both really had to go I had to go afk (stayed in game though). When I got back about 20 minutes later we were still bleeding out and the medic was 18,000 km away and getting further away. We were over halfway bled out I believe so the medic would not have got to us in time. We both then just logged out (clicked escape in bleeding out mode) and left for the day; only to find the guy had made a report against us later on. basically I don't understand and need help with Why he made the report when he didn't lose anything As the medic was so far away and it had been such a long time he would not have received anything off me or Biggle anyway. How it is fail rp to bleed out and die. As we both got shot multiple times I don't see how with out medical attention we wouldn't bleed out and die. What I was supposed to do? I had to log off and I knew that before the event happened. The guy was the one being annoying for just randomly circling us in his car outside of the rebel zone when there isn't anything with in walking distance so there would have been no other reason for us to have gone out there and towards a forest. As we aborted when the bleed out bar was under half and we didn't break the comms rule or anything I am not sure of any rule that was actually broken? Please help as even though our 72-hour bans end tomorrow i don't see how we could have prevented this situation, what we actually did wrong and also 72 hours for this? I've reported mass rdm'ers and seen them get 24 hour bans and me and Biggle are ex- Cop, NHS and HATO members as well as long term players. Thank you for reading :) <3 Link to the guys video with his report - https://grandtheftarma.com/topic/58573-report-a-player-ewc-biggle-ewcbenportas/
  3. Today I got into a discussion on TS with two officers and a few extra people because I was RP'ing as a lawyer and I was trying to help with a friends case and basically this DET said you don't know this man (even though we got out of the same car together) and that I need to leave the PD. So I go on TS and we discuss this and what I took out of that convo is that if you want to be a lawyer go for it but you can't be in on every case that is going down with an officer and a suspect but if your RP'ing as a lawyer then that's your job. So I would love some clarification whether your allowed to RP as a lawyer because I didn't see anything against it in the rules but if you're only allowed to be a lawyer then why can't you help in every case? I think if there are going to be rules for Lawyers they should be published.
  4. Best RP I've had from 4:34 into the video - The initial RP was poor to say the least when I pulled over asking for help from the black SUV (which turned out to be NATO) from the APC, however, that aside - some fantastic APC comms - Apologies for sounding smashed, the drugs I list that I take are infact the drugs I take due to a spine operation, so I was definitely spaced off my tits haha (also the wife & young one was in bed so I couldn't be too loud) Without giving it away - 36:03 is GENUINE confusion as to what the f*** happened!!! haha - great night boys! @VeX @Switchblade @AWOL @Change @Hawky Rojoman @Tek @OllieJordan

  6. Hey guys, its Daz here, and I am going to do an event... DAZ'S DAY OF DIVING! Its going to be a big event held at Kavela where I will be leading a fun expidition into open waters! It will start on Thursday 27th October at 12PM (mid day) at GMT time (London time zone). I will be taking out a boat of people to go dive and fish in the local areas around Altis. You will need: Diving Lisence Boat Lisence (if you want to bring a speed boat with us) *Possibly* a microphone A diving suit (full gear needed, you can poach for turtles at one location we are going to so get rebel lisence if you want) Good roleplay sense! If you want to come, meet at the alloted time on the beach of Kavala by the fish market and I will pick everyone up. We will go to 3 dive locations and have a fun time all the way. Hope to see you there!
  7. Hello GTA just a quick question about RPing gas station robberies in game. Currently I am finding it very frustrating to pull of gas station robbing because of restrictions. At the moment I am not allowed to shoot at cops that arrive to the gas station with sirens blaring (as any actual armed robber would probably do) and I am forced to wait for them to come into voice range to finally engage them. However the big problem with this is that it allows the cops plenty of time to completely out manoeuvre me . Such as today cops arrived in full sight of my rifle and parked in the middle of the field just to the left of the gas station and I could have shot them easily (they were out of voice range) I was then required to wait and watch them casually stroll around till they make it to a hill behind the gas station overwatching, then once they have set up enough cover they send one man forward in plain sight who i still cant shoot (because of RP reasons) to cover right behind the gas station to yell at me hands up. At this point im forced to leave as there is no way I can take on the heavily covered cops while holding off the assault at which point I drive away and they open fire. In this occasion I got away (with nothing) and I'm feeling these sort of encounters would go very much differently had I been able to fire at them while they are in plain sight. I understand that I cannot just shoot every cop I see because I am robbing a gas station but when it is so clear they are heading and setting up for me it seems very unlike an armed robber to just let them get on with it without firing on them. Can anyone suggest anything or have you had the same sort of experiences? Thank, Sean
  8. 2.7: If you are incapacitated and you have been restrained, given blood or somebody has made an effort to speak you then you cannot execute yourself for at least five minutes otherwise it will be considered fail RP. If you have been restrained but the person responsible has made no effort to even speak to you then you are welcome to execute yourself. e.g. Player A kills Player B and then restrains him, shortly after tells him that he has called a medic and he should be here soon. If player B then executes himself then he will be subject to punishment. Being in APC I hate it when we restrain someone and as soon as they are able to, they finish themselves. Unfortunately, many people aren't familiar with this rule, nor can we expect every person to be aware of every rule. Because of this, and because it effects every officer who rps with someone just for them to bleed out, I think when you are restrained a notice should come up similar to one when your coms are taken. It could say something like 'you've been restrained. You are not allowed to finish yourself for at least five minutes if you are being RPed with'. Most people who finish themselves aren't purposely breaking the rules, they just maybe don't know about it. With this they wouldn't finish themselves and rp would be improved. please let me know what you think and if you like it, share what you think the message should say. Thank you.

    When doing my initial training from CSO to PCSO in the APC one thing that was discussed a lot was whispers and setting them up correctly. One thing that confused me is that despite the APC's high roleplay standards they do not currently use any form of police dispatch, instead talking among themselves via teamspeak. I brought this up to many upper ranking officers who both thought it was a fun idea but bad in execution. The idea itself is for a set number of persons to be designated as dispatchers, these people are usually non sworn members of the APC, civilians who work for the police with no arrest powers who's sole function is to update the APC when responding to calls, making traffic stops, and calling for backup. How the implementation of a civilian class working for APC having access to police dispatch and such would go about, I am not sure. But in theory this is how a dispatcher would operate. Scenario 1: Officer alerts dispatch he is making a traffic stop outside a fuel station on X street, across from the X shop, dispatch alerts nearby units of the stop and is standby if the officer needs help, after completion officer informs dispatch they are ok, and all is good, and we know that officer is safe. If they don't respond to dispatch, they know to alert officers nearby to check on him. Scenario 2: A officer is driving down the road and a dispatch is received, instead of taking his or her eyes off the road and reading a possibly long dispatch that may be across the map from him or her, the dispatcher notes the severity of the crime, the location and informs the proper party( closest available units) over whispers (radio) of the scenario. Scenario 3: A officer is in a vehicle pursuit. Instead of constantly having to key in to update nearby units via whispers, the officer would simply inform dispatch who could track the location of the unit via map and inform the responding officers of his or her position, if he or she is bleeding out, etc. Overall I know the argument could be made that this seems great on paper, but horrible if implemented, since a human would have to physically be doing this job and it is not the most exciting. But to that I would say it the job could be rewarded on it's own. It could fast track applicants to police positions, assist officers in receiving promotions for volunteer work etc... Overall i think this would be amazing and all so much immersion to policing. There's a reason why cops in real life use dispatch instead of talking among themselves. In the heat of the moment you don't want to have a finger keying up your radio, you want it on the trigger, dispatchers could save lives, because sometimes the difference between life and death is a split second.

    Hello there, So hear me out, the other day I was thinking about some tools to enhance the RPing experience and/or give some rope to make it easier establish an RP situation. What if it would be possible to write a little backstory/bio for your character, just like the Kavala Coffeehouse but then in-game. Player X could scroll-down in front of Player Y to read Player Y's bio and vice versa. The menu design could be simple with just some space (a few lines) for a short bio or can be more comprehensive with multiple headers which include things such as: age, race, gender(?), eye colour, height, weight, occupation, nationality, nicknames, physical marks (e.g. scarfs, tattoo's, birthmarks, deformations, etc.), personality traits (maybe your character is very sarcastic or extremely envious), whatnot. This would all be non-compulsory. So people who don't like to write such a wall of text, or want to leave their Bio open so they can establish/change it later or are just not interested in this kind of RP wont be bothered with it. But for players who seek more in-game RPing or want to heavily RP a certain role this could give them a nice tool to do so. What are your thoughts, has this already been suggested, maybe it's not even possible with the current ARMA engine? Please feel free to respond.
  11. While playing as "Honest civilian" I some times see a lot of people who would gladly run away than give you some money. For example while me and my friend tried to rob 1 person he said how fast can you shoot me and started running. Me and my buddy are not little kids holding hand guns, or water pistols. I am almoust 19 year old male and my buddy 21 years old,equipped with bullet proof vests and holding automatic rifles and he doesnt want to raise hands and starts running. Ok ok It happens one guy. Right? No thats a thing appereantly on this server (again no offense I like the server). Guy at Proccesing place in box driver surrounded and cant escape tries to run me over with truck and doesnt listen our commands, and then he says grow up... Now you will say report them post a video about them. And lets say he gets perma ban? There are lot of other people doing same thing. Ah you killed me let me return to that place and take my stuff back. How can we fix this? Simply we just add larger spawn timer. Not 40sec but 10minutes or even 15minutes. Now lot of you will tell thats to much or it wouldnt work, there will be lot less people on server. Firstly Cops, Hato, and medics(god bless medics), are all registered to site. They applied to site for that specific role and for them to break RP is likly not going to happen so they should be spared from that timmer. Civilians on the other hand are "animals" and are more likely to do that. If they are people who want to play on server for long time and not just passers looking to troll and so on they will accept this this with a little rebelion but will get used to it. The idea is for then not to almoust instantly re spawn but if they are killed and have to wait 15 min to respawn they will think about it and next time wont be so recless and will probably not go rambo style next time. Which means there will be less cases "How fast can you shoot me?" or trying to run away without saying a word. If they already dont care for gear and are like I dont care I just earned 5m he can shoot me all he want, then at least he should wait 10-15 minutes for respawn. Which is not a lot of time but it can change RP on server drasticly with more talking and less running because I dont want to give you 981$ and my backpack. Sorry for any grammaticly incorrect sentences, or any typos Your fellow terrorist ♥

    Hello guys today I got some ideas for HATO. 1) I think HATO should be able to tow vehicles, for example is one car crashed into the water HATO can tow it back. ( I'm not sure if admins can do it on Altis Life mod ) 2) There will be more RP if HATO have to tow the vehicle to HATO RCC and there should be an NPC where you can impound vehicle, and then if you want your car back and don't wait until the server restart you shoud pay some money. ( I don't know how much ) I think in this way there will be more RP than ( put a car in your pocket ) impound in the middle of nowhere.
  13. i think it would be a cool idea for police cars to have megaphones on them, that way we would be able to tell cars to pull over during chases and communicate with people running on foot, especially as people can't hear you talk while you are in a vehicle atm. i think it would deffo add some new interesting role play and would be a good addition. let me know what you think.
  14. So my event idea, is a stereotypical movie idea where the president of altis just arrived to the island as he left for a long time. He has a plan to give an important speech infront of the hobos about the well being of the island. Because of the growing tensions. As president arrives at the airport with his escorts and as they begin their way to the city. A group of rebels are keen to stop them and to take the president hostage, for their personal gain. That at is the main thought of the even t but there is different opportunities that the rebels and the cops can take advantage of. Before the the president arrives , his second hand advisor decides to head to the airport early as he doesn't want the president to get mad, his advisor leaves alone in his car with just a driver. The rebels have a chance to hit the advisor to get information about the presidents arrival such as ( what car he is in , how many escorts, what kind of firepower, etc ), remember this is a rp situation so the rebels can make a fake car crash to lure the driver out, so he can't call for backup. Even though if the president reaches the city the rebels have a chance to take him there, but it will be much harder as there will be snipers and road blocks, and the rebels must smuggle there weapons in. So the rebels can decide what to focus on. Either take him in the city or the road. Each decisions has their pros and cons. Remember this is a rp situation where you can't be trigger happy. You must make the hobos interested. As the president arrives to the city, he will exit his vehicle where he will be greeted by the fine hobos of the island, where he will then say a speech. Always imagine it's real life, the odds of something happening by mistake in real life is much greater than arma, so coincidences shouldn't be taken seriously by cops and rebels. Basically , the rp situation will include much more details, but I just wanted to receive feedback from you guys. I wanna see if this event is worth me adding more things, or if I should trash it. YOUR FEEDBACK is important. So even if you wanna be mean to me that's completely fine. :) thanks guys sincerely pumba
  15. Tried to role-play my way out of a bad situation. Turned out a really fun and enjoyable experienced, lost my truck full of coco but fuck it. Was worth the RP. PLEASE WATCH THE FULL VIDEO! Also, Massive shout-out to @Original, @Sharky and other NATO members involved for their brilliant RP.
  16. Welcome my good friends of Altis! Lawyers have now officially come to Altis. If you need a lawyer, send us a text, The APC have to acknowledge your right to a lawyer. We deal with any case, and aim for the best possible outcome depending on the case. Of course, there are some things we cannot do as lawyers, Yet there is alot that we can do. We are the official Lawyers of Altis, Do not be fooled by others they cannot get the same outcomes we can. Unfortunately we do not have a legal aid system in Altis just yet, This means that we are private Lawyers and you do have to pay for us. How do you know we can do the job, Well watch this footage of our very best in action. We were founded back in 2020, when the revolution first began on Stratis, First there was the militia, They tried to make amends with violence. The militia soon learnt that Violence was not their only problem, Diplomacy was an area they were not used to... So they hired certain individuals with certain skills, that took the very essence of diplomacy and started taking things back within the courts of law, Very soon NATO pulled out as we started to gain a foothold, Violence began to decrease, or so we thought! Soon after Nato pulled out we realised they had come to Altis, To help maintain peace they said, There operations decreased they said, yet this angered the locals and another phase of rebels began. For years, The rebellion cost many lives, All lives, Civillians, Rebellions and Nato's, The local APC tried to maintain Law and Order, yet they too became corrupt. The rebels needed help, attacked now from both Nato and APC, They were fighting a losing battle, Often most Rebels would not survive The ensuing gun-fights, and if they did their lives would change forever in the midst of the APC Prison's. No longer does this have to happen Rebels, Us here at Corrupt Lawyers Association will fight for your freedom alongside you, within the bounds of the law. We aim to keep you out of jail, so you may live, once more freely, to fight another day. So Brothers We say to you, Do not be afraid, call us when your in need and we will do the diplomacy for you!!!
  17. Me & my gang were messing around on @DnA's "NMD Sandbox Altis" mission and decided to create ourselves a little role play scenario. We use this to train etc, but we decided to scrip a little situation and record it for fun. Nothing special, but hope you guys enjoy! PEACE!
  18. So our Gang, 'Celestial Rebellion' was notified of an alternative way of robbing the bank. We had a look at it and decided to test it for ourselves. We created a private contractor company called 'Celestial Floor & Door'. We explained to the cops that we were contracted by the government to go to the bank and redo all the flooring and replace the vault door. Had ALOT of fun role-playing and as you can see, everything went smoothly. This is a great idea and I would encourage everyone to give it a try. We weren't even bothered about the money, we just wanted to have some good fun and RP. I personally thank all the APC/NATO involved, absolutely brilliant RP from them guys. If you want to join us, you can visit our recruitment page here: ENJOY!!
  19. Best servers, best staff, best admins, best players and what a fucking community. Who else agrees? Everyone reply with something they love about GrandTheftArma...
  20. Anyone who is interested in an Investment service in which you input lets say 50k at the start of the day and end up with 300-400k at the end of the day please message me. The formula works better the more money you invest so if you invest 1million or even 5 million you can expect a realistic return using the same multiplier! This is done through my company in Altis and is not a fraud I repeat its NOT a fraud I play on the server regularly and so any concerns you may contact me with my name Ronnie Kray, oh and we can give investment updates when requested as well as the profit turned over at the end of each working day and I also have screenshots of how we operate and I can tell you we always operate within the Altis government laws!
  21. Just a briefing I was AFK, when the police first shown up and had to do some quick thinking... Even the police said it was cheeky but could not argue :)

  24. I was RP:ing outside Kavala police HQ for a while when Mr. Mix approach to me with a question. After answering him I felt a strong urge to help this newcomer and decided to give him a tour around the island. When in the SUV I noticed his lack of experience regarding the in-game communication - more specifically switching between direct chat and vehicle chat - which of course caused a awkward situation; how am I gonna explain to him that he needs to switch to vehicle chat, without double-slashing it? Well, I guess this is one way: What happened later? Good question. We visited quite a few places around the island during our two hour ride (it's true). Unfortunately the ending was somewhat harsh: rebels VDM:d us and I died in the explosion together with the hostile driver; left was Mr. Mix and a very unforgiving rebel that ordered him to put his hands up or get shot. Unfortunately, again I know, Mix wasn't quick enough with shift+t and got blasted. RIP my hobo friend.

    Alot of police officers seems to not care about cilvians during hostage situations they mostly just storm in to kill the rebels without being considerate of the hostages. This eliminates the whole point of having a hostage if police dont care. there should be set of procedures that the police should follow when in a hostage situation to make it fun for everyone. negotiators should be sent down as a standard procedure to confirm the hostages and ask the rebels what they want. A negotiator should be nominated from the police department. The negotiator will have alot of responsiblity on there hand as a death of a hostage due to their careless decision should have some sort of punishment. the negotiator should be able to decide whether to keep a swat team on standby or to rush in however if a hostage dies a punishment should be put on the negotiator for endangering the hostages lives. This prevents pointless gunfights which the hostages just sit and watch while also having a chance of dying. punishment for causing hostages to die should be a fine for the negotiator as jail wouldnt be possible (i assume) there should be a set price for hostages to stop ridiculous prices being claimed for example hobo hostage 10-20krebel 50-100klow ranking officer 100k-150khigh ranking officer 200k-300k this money should come from goverment deposit so that the negoitator doesnt have to pay out the prices feel free to add a comment not sure how to make this work out properly was going to add money as a reward for saving hostages but it may create a loophole or encourage the police to just storm in anyway
