Trucking Addition

Postby Akiba on Sun Sep 16, 2012 9:29 pm

So recently on IRC I was speaking to krille120 and SirEric about an extra truck for the job. Almost everyone has used a Packer in single player and tried transporting cars across the city. This suggestion would make a great addition to the current system for trucking.

- After reaching the max level of trucking you can then use the Packer.

- The packer receives notifications from dealerships when they create orders.
- You're able to check back logs of notifications for ones that are outstanding.
- The packer drives to Ocean Docks to retrieve the vehicle needed for the order.
- The packer then transports the vehicle to whichever dealership ordered it.

This suggestion coincides with the Business suggestion for dealerships. viewtopic.php?f=318&t=267347

In my opinion the risk is way too big for this to be implemented in-game. People would be driving up and down on these trucks - stunting or just tossing random vehicles on buildings. An average, new, unfortunate player of this community would never resist the chance of using this truck as a ramp, at least once in his play-time.

Importing this truck into LS:RP would cause complete chaos and destruction.
I'm not supporting this.

This truck would not cause any chaos or destruction to the server.
Its a normal truck like any other.

The ramp cant be abused like on the picture above. The ramp will be lowered only when you are about to load some vehicles. Even if that happens, you can report them to admins.
This truck would bring more RP to truckers job. I dont think truckers with "Trucker Specialist" rank(max rank) would do any problems in the city. The Packer is slow and hard to control due to its long body and wheelbase.

I like the idea of adding more trucks to the server for the trucking job. Big trucks for those with high ranks @job.

I also don't think it will cause any harm to the server because players who already reached a high rank @job and drive the Linerunner can also do "damage" around. But it doesn't happen.

Also I would like to see the Cement truck with its own missions, the Roadtrain and Tanker in addition to the current Linerunner. The more diversity the better imo.

I can't see no good out of this. Just imagine how easy it would be for truckers (we all know how many truckers drive NON RPLy) to tip and troll player's cars, lagging and completely trashing people's cars, NONRP drivers going off the ramps for the sake of fun which ruins other people's Rp atmosphere.

Also, transporting cars for dealerships? So, it would rely on this job for cars to be in stock? I like the current system better, even if it is less realistic. The fines for tipping or breaking the cars should be HUGE, I mean dealership price huge!, and we all know that would just introduce a new target for trolls or lag and the refund section being filled up.

All in all, while I agree more jobs in LSRP is good, this job is best left out of the server.

Just imagine people lag pitting these things over, or them being left in the middle of the street.

There's nothing stopping players from doing that right now with the current high level trucks.

+ It's nowhere as bad as it was back when the trucker job had just got implemented. I -never- get lag pitted by a trucker these days. Aslong as -YOU- personally drive with the respect of other drivers in mind, you will be good. To be honest, I get more lag pitted by government agencies than truckers.

I'm 100% sure that the good old truckers won't be abusing this, but that doesn't mean your average Joe wouldn't resist the chance of using this as a ramp whenever he sees it being driven on the road, or just parked somewhere. Imagine this truck passing through Idlewood and the chaos it would create. People would be driving onto it, using it as a ramp and whatnot.

Implementing this is into the server would be like leaving an unlocked car in the middle of Harlem. We all know what the result would be. There are enough ways of grinding money on this server - we're better off without the Packer.

My thoughts exactly.

I would love to see a greater diversity between bigger trucks. especially the cement truck looks great!

What if the ramp wasn't movable, and the cars attach to the top when delivering? Nobody could drive up the ramp then.

If that's possible - sure, go ahead and import this into the server database. I don't have anything against it - less people would be trolling and crashing into the Packers on purpose with the ramp being disabled. You have my okay.

Also there is/was an ocean docks faction. They could be used to guard the cars at the docks while being loaded on?

I'd rather have a flatbed truck than this for Ocean docks. This would serve little purpose for the faction IMO. It's not like actual scripted cars are unloaded from the ships.

I thought they said somewhere about driiving cars onto the ramp.

Turn Los Santos RP to Los Santos Stunt, Unsupport. But in addition more ranks would be nice.
