Give us an official thread regarding the current stage of faceinvader, then update it properly? I think it is quite incompetent to give selective replies instead of an official, frequent and updated summary on what is BEING done. It's been so long since the deadline and the work has not even started?!
I believe the initial thread's definition of a deadline wasn't clear! The 'deadline' is referring to the 'deadline' for application submission, not for the plan's execution. I can't reply to precise technical details or the approach, but I can get back to you with this information. The current situation is and has been that the selection of an adequate team is still undergoing, and that is really just why the thread hasn't been updated—as there hasn't been much new information of substance to be added.

you should put in the adverts about the 5 hours you will have to sit and wait and do literally nothing for stealing a car and not stopping. but really, I think the long prison sentences aren't sustainable anymore, I wish there was some discussion about limiting the max sentence to 2 hours or allowing prison timers to go down when you're offline/on an alt char

Hi! Indeed, stealing a vehicle combined by using said vehicle to escape from police would get you four hours in prison. That kind of comes granted once you begin commiting crimes on the server, which is punished as per the Penal Code. There are many threads addressing this subject already, and as mentioned in this one, it's going to be discussed and reviewed in the upcoming times. The consesus still remains: "don't do the crime if you can't do the time".

that literally equates to "don't play the game". I really think it's a bad path to think that these long sentences are in any way. Making somebody sit somewhere, constantly having to tab in and out in an environment where there is zero actual rp anymore for hours and hours is stupid. Especially when a system could be implemented with their prison time going down whilst playing on another character, therefore they can help boost player numbers and interactions whilst still being punished for a pursuit or whatever. People shouldn't be punished OOCly for doing IC crimes and currently, thats what the five-hour long prison sentences look like.

I honestly feel a server-wide poll would show that people want this to be changed. Even capping the sentences at 2 hours, or making them go double-length whilst playing on another char on the same master account.

And if people are constantly getting into unrealistic trouble, always provoking for pursuits or whatever then that's what the admin team are for. That's what ajail is for, the IC prison and IC police should not be enforcing punishments on OOC rulebreakers which seems to be what they do now when they add max time, charge stack and enhance charges. But then, the response is always going to be "thats an IC problem, make an IA report" when sometimes it just isn't the case and people are only punished more for OOC reasons.

I don't know why you're trying to explain shit to these kids, lmao. Let them keep shit the way it is. That's why everything is trash now. They'll come up with any excuse or counterargument to try to justify the long prison punishments (that must be served while in game) without seeing their error in logic or what's good for the player and the server in the long run. I wrote something about this a while ago, saying our characters are the ones doing the crimes, so they should be the ones doing the time, and not the person behind the screen. My character is a female and goes to prison with males... Most of the characters are trolls who don't want to be there or are just idling and waiting to be released. But then the people who are roleplaying are realistic and have a lot of bullshit to deal with, and, this is just an example, it wouldn't be realistic for a male and a female to be in the same cell together. That's not roleplay, it's stupid and kills the immersion for whoever is seriously trying to roleplay. But nobody is going to do shit, so I just wasted my time writing this after I encouraged you not to explain shit, and I'm still going... Let this server die already so someone can be motivated to make a new and better one. I can't wait for the day when a good roleplay server is made. Then we can let all these kids who love this stay on their dead server with their long prison sentences and stupid rules and ideologies.
