    Owlgaming in 2014

    It was a time when vehicle and property tokens didn't exist so it was a little more of a stuggle to own something. It was also a time when it was just me and my mate who RP'd together. I would play in the server for a day, quit, and return in a few months.
  8. Logging forever instead of 10-20 is actually a great idea. It's what I wanted to suggest initially. However I didn't want the server's database tables for tow/attachment logs to become too bloated eventually which might cause lag so I suggested the limit. I also didn't know the other logs kept records of everything from current to forever. Nevertheless, I'd like to suggest logging tows from recent to forever now if it won't cause lag.
  9. Script Suggestion What would be the name of the script(s)?- Vehicle Tow/Attachment Logging What kind of script(s) are you suggesting?- General What is the suggestion?- Logging a vehicle tow or attachment for reports in case of non-rp tows and other inappropriate acts. What are the advantages?- It will deter general non-rp impoundments/vehicle seizures and other inappropriate acts such as when people tow a car to different places just to troll or powergame in general. What are the disadvantages?- None. Do you have any resources to support our scripters in making said suggestion?- I don't really have a video or screenshot to show which would demonstrate the feature. I hope the information below helps. How would you go about implementing this idea?- Log the last 10 or 20 people who had towed/attached a specific vehicle. When someone tows a car, it would say something like this: "(( This 2017 Ford Focus belongs to John Doe. ))". That indicates that the server is made aware that the car is being seized since the vehicle and owner information are being queried from the server's database tables which keep records of the server's vehicles and players. Perhaps you could add some code that will log the tows/attachments made for each vehicle just as the vehicle/owner information are queried from the DB so we know who towed the vehicle and what vehicle they used specifically to perform the tow. That way an admin would be able to look up the last person who towed the car and what vehicle they used to attach the vehicle. If an admin decides to check vehicle 1247, it shows a log of people who attached the vehicle like this: Last 10 tows/attachments for 2017 Ford Focus (VIN 1247): Liam Smith - 01/09/2017 10:27 Richard Peterson - 01/09/2017 12:14
  10. I believe the current system is fine since the identities are only revealed OOC'ly which in my humble opinion helps prevent powergaming. I disagree with this suggestion because it will do more harm than good. People would buy phones to powergame the impersonation of another person just to troll, which is much easier to do in a game than IRL. I can assure you that most people would powergame being someone else even though they didn't RP concealing their identity (calling someone normally and RPing as though someone else made the call by lying about not being that voice over the phone). Or worse. Someone powergaming an impersonation despite not having the proper tools to alter their voice or tamper with any data that goes through their phone which would conceal their identity.
