Easier phone commands

Post by TamTam » Tue Dec 20, 2016 11:51 pm

It's kinda annoying that when somebody sends you a message and then you have to click that green dot and stop driving your car...
Well, 20% of my time in LSRP is driving in my car. So let's make an additional way to check messages:

-Once you get a message you can do /viewmessages and simple as it sounds it'll show you the messages in the chat, you will no longer need to click that dot, enter the number and view it in the phone itself and stop driving or whatever you're doing.
(The messages will be finaly written in the chatlogs).

Example for the command:

/viewmassages
1) New message from 167213516.
2) New message from 172362134.
3) New message from 7573.

Then you can just /viewmessage 1 and it'll show you the message! (In the chat).

We already have /sms command, so let's add /viewmessages..

I see the current system as being more realistic. IRL you would need to actually browse your phone in order to get and see the messages. A simple command would just make it too simple. There already is a shortcut to the new messages (red text in the upper right side), this would be too easy IMO.

Well, the time you clicks on the green dot and the time you will /viewmassages it's the same time and you stop to drive at that time... So, not really supporting.
Ayo.

^ This. I love the realism in this game, and the phone system adds on to that. While a simpler command system would be easier for many other players, it'll just feel like it's just another old and cheap light roleplay server. It's just the little things that makes the biggest differences in the server, and the current one is one of those. Dunno, just me.

For all those who say it breaks realism~

In real life, when you browse messages you are not focused on driving, but you can still push the gas button. The current system stops you from driving, and controling the wheel, which can be done IRL while SMSing.

IRL it's not allowed, just like in game bro, this is an IC issue with the law enforcement, not with the game scripts.
This is a RP server, the point of SMSing while driving it's a role-play. This shouldn't be forced by the game script.
All the point is when you are SMSing while driving, you should RP not focused and show it, it's just like the rob role play, you are not forced by the game script to /pay, you are forced by the game rules and that how it should be with any script.

No. Simply no. It used to all be in the chat itself before the new phone system was implemented and it was pretty stupid and too easy to view a message in dire situations. I like how it is now.

You can already SMS your friend already in dire situation if you know the number, or if you have him in your contract: /SMS friend HELP MEEEEEEEE.
It involves the powergaming, we have admins to take care of power gamers, there always PG in the server, it'll not stop.

And what about players like him, with higher ping?
When I played 350 ping, when I was about to /phone, it had a delay of 5 seconds.

Why in the whole world would you implement a system which wouldn't work properly, knowing it will be abused and saying that admins will take care? Don't put it there, in first place, then.

Before, the whole phone system was in chat. Then this new system was implemented. Why in the whole world would you like to downgrade it?

I don't say to remove the current system, just add an other one.
There is more abusing in robbing, and scamming and more and more, should we add robbing script? No. Same here.

But if you add the system, people will obviously use that more than the current one we have, which is pretty much replacing the one we have now, and it's basically getting rid of the current phone system at the end of the day.

That's my point, to offer players to choose comfortable way to use the phone system. You are not forced to use it anyways, if you say most of the people will use it, it means the idea is great.
