This update will go live on 16/02/2020 at server restart

Hey there guys, just a small update today but it's regarding a relatively contentious issue so I thought I'd post something to explain.

An idea was posted by @BigBenji last month, this idea was regarding the police department. As we all know, many players have raised multiple issues with the way the department has impacted the server, the idea to implement drastic change has also gained traction as of recent. Todays update will implement a former version of the Police Department, showcasing a similar structure to what we had before the complex police system was introduced and a whitelisted form of policing was live on the server.

Another idea was posted by @Duffy which proposed we revert to a specific version of the department, this update is mostly in line with his suggestion and my response to it. Should the option to revert to a former iteration of the department win, this is mostly what the initial implementation will be based on.

What has changed:
  • Going on duty no longer requires you to fill out a questionnaire, everybody who goes on duty will have the rank of Sergeant.​
  • TFU will only require premium status to gear up.​
  • The Dispatch role will be disabled for the duration of this trial.​
  • TFU will no longer feature a light gear option and the range rover will no longer be obtainable, TFU will be required to stay at the PD until called out.​
  • plpd.online will be disabled for the duration of this trial, any and all policies and procedures are void during this time.​
  • All laws are required to be followed by any Officer on duty, as per rule 4.1 (Follow the law)​

The duration of this trial is one week starting from today (16/02/2020), a vote (in-game) will take place after the trial and the following options will be present:
  • Return to the current implementation of the Police Department (semi-whitelisted, intranet, rank structure etc)
  • Implement an unwhitelisted version of the Police Department (1 Lieutenant, 2 Sergeants, multiple Officers)

There will be an ongoing disussion with the community following this trial, allowing us to work toward the correct solution to this issue. The options presented above are to be seen as the most basic version of a future department, changes can be made once either option has been selected.

Have fun & please make sure to highlight any issues/bugs in the bugtracker so we can swiftly fix them.

UPDATE ::

Hey guys, just a heads up:

Obviously all previous laws/rules that existed to negate issues in the pre-whitelisted department have been removed and replaced with policies. For now, these things should be treated as temporary laws for the duration of the trial:
  • All individuals in TFU gear should ensure that they remain at the Police Department until called out to an appropriate volatile situation.
  • Using any TFU equipment whilst not geared up into full TFU gear is prohibited.

I may add more to this list in the near future, so please do keep checking back here throughout the week to avoid any punishment by staff. If you believe there's any more vital laws that need to be added for this trial, please do comment with suggestions.

A further note: Shotguns will be removed in their entirety following a hotfix tomorrow by @Samantha

Literally all I've heard since this was posted is @nutrient10 complaining about how he doesn't like it, please cancel the revert specifically just so he shuts the fuck up, thank you.

Thank you Ayjay for implementing my idea along with following the will of the people.

Due to this fact alone, I intend to return to the server on the 24th February.

Together we are strong!

All divisions are redundant right now, if we were to implement an entirely unwhitelisted PD, we would likely have X amount of RTU cars available and we could just give the speed camera etc to everyone.

I cant see this helping imo. I can just imagine people getting, banned and earned for fucking around with no IA. People are just not going to care and the amount of reports are just going to go up with barely any staff. Lets say the server hits 40 players, ban 5 people and you've lost 12.5% of your playerbase, 10 people would be 25%. Because lets face it. People are going to get banned over issues usually dealt with by IA

There is a very nice option staff can use, “blacklist”. We can just blacklist minges for like 2 months.

I highly suggest you remove everyone having a shotgun as police. Imagine cops responding to a raid, 12 cops. 4 heavy TFU And 8 Cops with a Remi and HK, there is no way to try and even win.

I also suggest limiting TFU slots, to how many players are online like it used to be for SWAT

There is also not enough staff to be stopping the minges. I can already feel that imma be sitting in my base doing absolutely nothing wrong and some cop battering rams my door and arrests me, I can't even call for a supervisor


Also no policy so we can just do this?!

Removing all policies was probably a mistake, should just have staff enforce the major policies and policies that used to be server rules.
