Police Team Balance Changes!

  • alt text

    Good Evening!

    It's no secret that the police team has been made largely redundant for quite a while now with very little people spawned aside from the odd new player and eager squad recruit.

    We have deduced that one of the primary reasons for this is the lack in variety due to a large quantity of the spawns being "locked" behind the ProCops qualification.

    Consequently, the SAPD team have put together a number of changes in an attempt to both increase the variety and motivation in playing as a police team member which is more appealing to both new players and non-squad players alike.

    These changes primarily feature increasing the availability of the previously locked ProCops spawns while also trying to maintain the value that holding a ProCops qualification once held.

    The changes can be found below:

    Thanks,

  • Was about to suggest it, radio must be locked to PC/Squads only or it's gonna be a mess.

    Weapons aswell can be stored in disks so it might be abused.

    And setting speedtraps, barriers and stingers should be either locked to specific spawn or just PC .. prefer if just PC imo.

    and ye PC can get wanted if spawned as non-PC spawn.

    Thank you.

  • @Kain change the name of Sheriff to Sheriff Deputy, and add Sheriff and Sergeant spawn for PC-only so we don't get stars when we kill an unwanted crim
    or make a script so PC members don't get stars while spawned as Cop

    (Sergeant for LVPD,SFPD,LSPD, etc)

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I would like to try and keep the radio as is, any abuse of the radio will lead to mutes.
    More communication is always better.

    Speedtrap we would like to keep public as this is under utilised currently.

    Barriers/Stingers will remain locked to PC. (A fix will be be pushed to stingers).

    Getting wanted on a non-PC spawn is also an intended feature.

  • Pretty fascinating changes, I hope it will be sufficient to balance both sides.


    ;From my perspective, the skin of the Prison Warden does not fit. It's just a point of view

  • @Kain What about PC members getting stars? can we make them not get stars while spawned as a non-PC cop?

    Or should Sheriff be kept for PC, deputy sheriff for public spawn, and sergeant for SAPD?

    I think it's a simpler, and good idea if we, PC members don't get stars in these spawns.

    Police Detective has been added to all counties and I would recommend choosing that for now.

    If this is something, more people want then feel free to suggest it

    Your suggestion is implying ranks that can make PC sound like a squad or similar to SAI.

    What would be better is a feature like you saying for PC not getting wanted even when spawned as Marine or any public / non-PC spawn

    In other words, you get wanted as Police Marine if you are not PC but if you are PC and spawned as Police Marine then you don't get wanted on killing by mistake or sth.

  • @Marko If that was true, then it's already a squad ._.

  • Weapon storing has also been patched for none Trainees.

    Stinger fix also pushed.

    Thanks for spotting.

  • @Kain I'll use that spawn for the meanwhile I also like it, but I also liked the Sheriff spawn for PC-only as my PC character is Rick Grimes, but what you did was great, and I applaud you. maybe I should suggest that script, but for the moment this suggestion should be #1 waiting ticket.
