LEO RP will have another aspect to it. Clothing descriptions will mean something to us now.
As long as nametag apprears above your head, description if clothes dont matter at all, all they need is *describes John_Doe* not actual description of his clothes
That's borderline metagaming.
That is only done because it leads to confusion when one describes another player. It's also not done by most of the server, not just law enforcement.

Yes and no. Given that most of the time, people who break the law don't describe themselves or have a /attributes filled out? If you can see someone's face, its been accepted as old as... Well hell, 2008 and probably earlier. Most people don't even use /mask properly, and just use it to hide their face despite having no mask on or anything that should hide your identity.

Yeah, that's not how it works anymore. I'm not willing to turn this topic into a flame war about who metagames and who doesn't, but in the Sheriff's Department, we now don't accept such descriptions given ICly on an OOC basis. Unless there are at least three clothing items of the actual suspect being described given, we simply don't take it in consideration. Changing clothes and putting on an actual mask or an OOC mask if you're wanted should work just fine.

Note to self: Clothes are all that matters. Not facial features, or height, or race.

That obviously comes into play too, but nine times out of ten people with asian skins roleplay being caucasian, so it can be a bit tricky!

Its really not. Most of the time if someone does the *Describes X* its because the other doesn't offer up a description. The clothes they wear may not match the skin they use, as we have more than a few skin mods and its easy as dirt to make your own. The other person can also just say that the description doesn't match them. In my experience, the describes X feature works so long as the LEO who arrives uses their best judgement on if they should arrest the person or not.

(This is also why I use this shorthand, but usually put "In vivid detail" to emphasize I actuallygot a look at them. I mean, changing clothes doesn't suddenly change your facial features, your tattoos, your hairdo, etc. That most people seem to think it does)

True, true.
Also as an aside: Was not trying to appear like flaming. Just my view as a former SD. Came off more sarcastic than I meant xD

This is going to be insane. Actually get to use clothing discriptions when calling out suspects and off duty deputies wont all look the same now. All gang members wont have to look the same either, Bikers could actually benefit from this too. Cant wait.

By the way, was just curious if there are planned any vehicle mods installed in-game as well, because I didn't find any other topic but this one. As example, maybe there could be a possibility to add mods for the auction cars, like Turismo, Super GT, Infernus etc. It would add more realism into.

Hope this is the right topic. :D

Black guys with hoodie can actually be black ig now. This is a revolution
And to clarify, I am not being sarcastic, I've seen the hoodie skin and /me is black like, so often.
I mean try that after being robbed, describing a guy who has a hoodie and is black. :D:D
