First off thanks for writing the post, thought I would jump on during my lunch break to answer it for you guys so that you know we are looking at things as and when they come in.
1) Ideally we asked players to roleplay guards and such due to the start of the apocolypse where there was an awful lot of firearms and other equipment still on the server. These have been removed in a big bulk in order to try provide a better playing field for those roleplaying - As lets be honest in any Shit hit the fan scenario there wouldn't be a huge bulk of resources that are incredibly easy to obtain. Since this has been a couple of weeks of roleplaying time, theory would indicate that there would be barely any people hanging around. So for guard NPC's you would no longer need to roleplay them. However this doesn't necessarily mean that everything is easy to access, bare in mind in situations like this there would be some members of groups still hanging around and holed up or have taken everything they could, hoping for order to once more happen. Therefore places such as Law Enforcement and such, would still be hard to get in, and have less resources that are available now.
2) Legal/Illegal - The reason we had corruption permissions still needed is because those who are in said factions would have access to an awful lot of equipment that can easily have them at a huge advantage to others who are playing. We heard that everyone wants to be on the same level which is why we had this rule in place, however what I could do to get around this is remove people from the F3 who are law enforcement etc so they can roleplay how they want to OR change all the gate settings/remove current equipment. As it stands those in the Government factions do have an advantage if we let them use anything they can access.
3 Factions - We have removed majority of the heavy duty vehicles from factions, I understand this caused a few people to be angry but again everyone wanted to be on the same level with no one having a better advantage. Those who are roleplaying the remains of Government were allowed one or two vehicles each to keep this going, but if they were abused they will get removed. As for faction deletion I do know some people are using factions to help them build shelters, however I agree we should remove most buildings or set them to no one so people can't abuse the /gates etc. I will look into this with other admins to see if we can come to a comprimise.
In regards to an F3, shoot up an FT contact and we can discuss making new factions and giving people that perk.
4 Interiors - I do believe admins have been setting none owned properties to no one so people can roleplay this and break in in order for shelters to be used. I'll try go on this weekend when possible to have a nose around to see what I can do to add more to this.
5 Money - I believe money wise this would have to be up to @Chaos since its a major script feature in MTA and can't just simply be deleted easily.
6 Admins - We had only recently open up applications and allowed people to apply just for MTA if they want to, obviously staff can either be on MTA or V and aren't forced to do one of the other. However staff activity is still expected and those who aren't helping out on either server will face internal action, this has always been the case however I do feel its time more action was taken. If there comes a time when we do need more staff then of course apps will be reopened.
7 Lore - Of course without players there would be no server, as I often find players shape the roleplay into how they see fit in any scenario. Would be awesome to hear peoples ideas for Lore and perhaps work as a collective to work out the exact lore of the server. I've seen some great ideas but I think it should be the majority of the community who decided instead of one or two people.
8 Events - Admins are always allowed to provide more roleplay for players on both MTA and V, and I will be actively encouraging them to do so on both servers. I will try think of ideas that could even include no admin supervision whatsoever. If you do have an idea for an event we are more than happy to listen and work with you to make it happen.
As for script ideas I've spoken to @Unitts who will be looking at suggestions and such this weekend and looking at implementing things. I of course understand the frustration of admins not being on when players are or things needing continous supervision. We are listening and are looking at ways to resolve this. Obviously there is a lot going on behind the scenes but one thing I want to continue bringing is clarity for both servers.
I do want to thank players who have been creating decent roleplay and not rule breaking, sadly there is a very small minority who do try abuse the system but we are working hard to ensure the rest of the community have fun and enjoy their experience. Whether it is roleplaying survival or through normal roleplay on V. This community of course can always improve, but it's nice to see groups coming together and most of all having fun.
I hope this answers/puts to rest some questions people have. Bare in mind this whole server scenario on MTA is very new and can be somewhat different to what staff are used to, so I appreciate those who are baring with us.
