Allowing players to test drive before buying vehicle

Post by papanomaly » Mon Jun 19, 2017 2:39 am

Before you buy vehicle you should be able to test drive it for 5 minutes or something, actually how it goes IRL.

What you guys think?

Already in place via roleplay from players selling their vehicles.

Dealerships? Easily abusable to the point where it's not worth implementing in my eyes.

if u wanna test drive a car just hop on a movie server. if every single vehicle had special stats then yeah, itd make sense, but for every premier to perform the same theres no point.

There's literally no point to implement this.

People abusing it by using the cars to go to far places like some already do with the license exam's cars.

That could be solved by maybe restricting an area around it, as in an instructor would be sitting next to you or something and he would tell you not to cross a certain circle around the area. Or by putting a timer on how long you can stay in there.

Yes, players already do this when they sell their cars. However, if we want to let the same from the Dealership then there's a risk of huge abuse.

This game is like over 10 years old and I'm pretty sure 95% of the people playing this already drove every vehicle

We're not talking for the game, we're talking for realistic dealerships. If there is time limit on the test drive you can't go that far.

Maybe you tried every car in the game, but a lot of people didn't.
Management can think for other ways to stop the abuse, it's not that big problem.

I saw post with good idea, restricting the players to drive the cars in specified area. If they pass the borders of the area the vehicle will be despawned. So if they abuse, they will need to walk afterwards.

Guess there could be a track like the driving area in LV for a unique dealership that lets you test them.

Worst idea ever, this is roleplay server, you should be able to test drive the vehicles.

I see no point either. It does sound like a good idea, however I do only see abuse from it like the license exam vehicles. If it teleports you to a restricted area, it sounds stupid as well.. even if there's a restricted area around the dealership, people will still use it to reach to the borders faster than running.

No, we're talking about a secluded area like the boxed in single player driving arena, and having a whole new dealership there, no teleporting or abusing the cars.

Please read over the comments, and don't think about the abuse, the abuse is going to be avoided, it's not like the license exam. For the license exam you need more space, to test your driver skills (speed driving skills :mrgreen: ) You can do test drive in closed area with 3-4 turns and one straight road where you can test the speed of the vehicle.
