Solved Suggestion: "Role-play" handcuffs

  • Hi everyone,

    The Idea:
    Adding a pair of handcuffs that are strictly for role play usage. They should be restricted to SAi, Secret Service, DE, HLS, ProCop. Adding them to official squads could be considered, however, I just feel like it is too easy to become a part of an official squad. They didn't earn it the same way you did in the restricted groups - you had to prove your worth, that you know how to role-play and actually play the game. Not just play the arrest and kill everyone game.
    These handcuffs are supposed to be used to put people that are a threat to either the national security (Secret Service) in custody.

    How should they work?
    They should restrict the person who is cuffed from running (shift-running) - or perhaps at a limited speed. They should not be allowed to pull out any form of guns either.
    Both parties (the one cuffing & the one being cuffed) should confirm the action, this should be added to prevent any sort of abuse. Considering they are STRICTLY for role play usage, a confirmation system should not be troublesome whatsoever.

    Why?
    To allow more role-play ideas. The entire role-playing scene is getting saturated, and people are getting tired of the typical - get pulled over, talk for a few minutes, and then get a bribe to role-play episode. Therefore, it is time to add some new features, that would give people the interest of role-playing.

    Looking forward to seeing your criticism.

  • Not bad bish, finaly a good idea from u Howlze

  • Nice idea, would boost cop & criminal Rps by a mile and I doubt its hard from a scripting perspective. The cuffed player could be attached to the cop similarly to that of the VIP escort script, f.e.

    it's far from ready
    if anything, could add an image of handcuffs above a player's nametag for the first version

  • Perhaps, but in the future, think it would be cool to look at

  • I'm down for this but i'd suggest something on it, make it so that both players must agree that the crim is getting cuffed (meaning a cop doesn't just cuff anyone regardless if the person wants to RP or not, or wants to be given a chance to flee RP-wise) after that the cuffs had to be removed by the cop who put it, if he quits the server or dies. Also making it so that the cuffed player cannot be arrested to prevent random trainees from ruining a RP

  • Yes yes yes, hell yes.

  • @Pera98 That's why it is restricted primarily to groups that should know exactly this. But yeah, I get your idea.

  • Would you player need to approve handcuffs being used on them? Just for the sake of abuse. I get they'd be for specific groups but bare in mind our player base lol (me for example I will deffo handcuff @Joe )

  • it was already made by me

  • @Jay I wouldn't mind any form of approving - it wouldn't hurt the role playing, and considering it could limit abuse - why not?

  • @Carter Could you post the script here?

  • Bump-idi-bump.

  • @Jay

    Not necessary confirm, but also could be something like having to stand next to x person, and it would take around 5 seconds to handcuff. If any person would move, it would stop the handcuffing

  • @Bunny I'd definitely prefer the confirmation part. Just to ensure that both parties are agreeing to participate in the role play.

  • Roleplay ded anyway, why bother?

    I agree with that ^
    If it's for RP purposes then during the roleplay, both people should agree on it in the script itself, also making it so the person that's cuffed(if wanted) cannot be arrested by other cops is a good way to prevent any form of trolling.
    It would be appreciated if you add those bits to your suggestion, if you agree with them of course @Howlze

  • @Albie Yes, done.
