What would be the name of the script(s)?-
Ability to hear /m inside of an interior
What kind of script(s) are you suggesting?-
General What is the suggestion?-
We've all seen the typical SWAT sits involving a barricated suspect/hostage situation at least once before, haven't we? The police officers trying to co-operate with the suspects inside a building by... Screaming from the top of their lungs? Suddenly, that's where the immersion wall is broken - Why would a police officer have to yell so that the people inside would be able to hear them if they are given a megaphone as part of their duty tools? Because /m, which is the command that lets you speak through your megaphone (if you have one) hasn't been scripted to be audible from inside an interior. This suggestion is asking to bring just that to the table.
What are the advantages?-
Well, first off:
-You'd raise the immersion bar by quite a bit if this gets implemented, since you'd normally be able to hear it if this were to happen in real life;
-You wouldn't have cops screaming off the top of their lungs when trying to co-operate with someone during something like a SWAT sit, which is overall good if trying to use a calm approach instead of the usual yell, making the police officer trying to talk with the suspects seem less menacing and more "I'm just trying to be your friend here";
-You could give people more roleplay opportunities - Maybe some guy is going around talking through his megaphone and annoying everyone on purpose, maybe you have some other guy driving one of those advertising vans with megaphones ontop announcing something like an upcoming event, or maybe even a newly opened buisness. It could even be used during the elections - You could have people supporting one party driving around one district saying things such as "Vote for this person, he will be a great leader" etc.
If you can think of any other advantages, feel free to post them in this thread
What are the disadvantages?-
-Again, you could also have trolls going around spamming things in /m, but you don't really see that happening often in the first place.

Do you have any resources to support our scripters in making said suggestion?-
-Shout (/s) script;
-Megaphone (/m) script How would you go about implementing this idea?-
Simply just recycling the part of the shout script where it lets you hear someone shouting if inside of an interior and applying that to the megaphone script.
