  1. Can admin lock & archive the topic. I’m leaving the community.
  2. Introduction to the French Organized Crime Family The Rochette Family is a French organized crime family with heavy ties to the Corsican mafia. The French organized crime or loosely known as "Milieu", is well known for creating the "French Connections" scheme (mainly the Corsican mafia) during the 1930s that gave birth to the smuggling of heroin from Indochina through Turkey to France and then the United States and Canada. At its peak, during the 1960s, the French and the Corsican crime families managed to create themselves a ludicrously rich drug smuggling empire until its dismantlement in the 1970s. The French mob holds many close ties and roots to the Corsican counterpart, its organizational structure and ways of dealing with business is no different. However, their culture is. While the Sicilian or the well known Italian-American organized crime only allows people of Italian descent to join the mob, the French equivalent doesn't harshly discriminate on its membership requirements. Anyone regardless of their race is allowed to join the French mob as long as they speak French, are of French descent or come from a nation that is a member of the Francophonie (or post-colonial state of France/a nation where French is lingua franca or customary language). Only members of French descent are allowed to become Capitaine (Captain) and beyond. The Rochettes The Rochette family was founded by Gilbert Rochette. They were a small-time crime organization in Marseille during the French Connections era until its dismantlement in the '70s. With the death of the most important source of income, the organization was dissolved. The New Era - 2021 The last remaining son of Gilbert, Raymond Rochette emigrated to the United States with promises from the Unione Corse that the second generation of the French Connection is coming. He's to help establish links to distribute the drugs in Los Santos while setting up a foothold within the state of San Andreas for the French mob for a variety of criminal activities such as money laundering, racketeering, prostitution, extortion, corporate crime and contract killing. As the French community grows in the city, Raymond established an imports company under the name of "L'Aigle". The company imports the finest French alcoholic beverages and cheese with hopes to promote the French culture, but also to create a legal front for the organization. ____ OOC Information: While the information on the French mob is limited, I tried my best to use my imagination to fill in the gaps. You can see this faction as a French counterpart to Italian-American LCN, but with much different culture, ways of dealing with business and way of life. The faction is not only here to create a criminal RP, but also to kickstart an IC French community in Los Santos where the faction would be heavily involved in its development and creation of the "Los Santos French Association". We're not a gang, we're an organized faction with structure and internal rules, but as the idea is new the faction develops with you. RP as a respectful individual, not a gangbanger. We don't use radios - I believe they break the immersion and realism of criminal organizations. Use phones to meet up, talk with each other and get to know other members by hanging out. We encourage to roleplay the legal front of the faction which is the imports company L'Aigle or any other further ventures. We're here to do business, not to control the city. We will only go so far if pushed around. By associating yourself with the faction you give us permission to character kill you if deemed necessary/for valid RP reasons. I would like to admit one thing. It's the first time I ever went around creating a faction in a very long period of time that I RP, so please bear with me. I know the topic might be a mess and graphical work is missing (which I'm hoping to get sometime soon), but I will work on ensuring the topic is maintained and clean as time goes by.
  3. And your reasoning behind the idea of it not really needed right is? Part of me somehow think it's due to "low playerbase" "it won't be used due to low player base" etc. If so are we going to say no to every single suggestion there is due to the fact that the playerbase is low?
  4. Script Suggestion What would be the name of the script(s)?- Public Phones/Payphones and LSPD ability to get phone call records What kind of script(s) are you suggesting?- General What is the suggestion?- We see public phones all around GTA 5 and I think it's time to get them to work. Give a player ability to use payphones like a normal phone player has, each payphone has its own static number and the player has to pay a charge of per minute its used? It would be automatically taken from their credit card or create a new item called "Payphone Card/Prepaids" which can be purchased at a 24/7 with values from , 50, 100 and 200 After each use of the card, the payphone will display the remaining balance. Now when it comes to LSPD I think they should be given an ability to check phone records of each player with obvious approved authority and backtrace who the number belongs to who. This would give a whole new meaning for LSPD to conclude their investigations against organised crime or gangs and organised crime to use payphones as a way of mask their tracks and avoid being bugged by the LSPD. Now that also could give a whole new meaning and potential for different suggestions and RP to come. What are the advantages?- Gives players a whole new ways of RPing, both for legal and illegal factions. Crime factions can use payphones to avoid incriminating themselves and having a clean record to prove they have no connection to certain people and avoid being wired by the LSPD during their investigation. Gives LSPD more possibilities to gather evidence on criminals What are the disadvantages?- None as far as I can see. Do you have any resources to support our scripters in making said suggestion?- No. How would you go about implementing this idea?- Same way as you implemented player phone system.
  5. I agree with this. Perhaps the better idea for this suggestion would be enable more places for food & drinks RP. Additionally I was thinking of some sort of benefits player gets from dining on a fine meal (unlike some who eat 4 chicken steak sandwiches in their car) but that would of be easily abuse with people bum rushing those places and not RP'ing anything just to get the benefit. The need for water & food is great on paper but shit in practice. You end up turning the server into an MMORPG survival at that point, if anything people should be encouraged to do more passive RP.
  6. Script Suggestion What would be the name of the script(s)?- Test Drive What kind of script(s) are you suggesting?- Vehicles What is the suggestion?- Ability to test drive a vehicle before purchasing it from the dealership to find the perfect vehicle for yourself without wasting money on it. Truth is, not everyone is a GTA 5 guru, myself included, therefore knowledge of vehicles and their performance is limited. What are the advantages?- Gives the player an ability to test drive a vehicle to find their perfect match + gives more realistic RP vibe to the dealership. What are the disadvantages?- Possible misusing of the system where players could be stealing the vehicles while test driving. Security measures could be put in place to prevent that e.g. A cooldown, timer of max five minutes and the authorities are made aware of a stolen vehicle + players description? Do you have any resources to support our scripters in making said suggestion?- No. How would you go about implementing this idea?- Include a GUI button in the vehicle selection mode either in the middle top/bottom of the screen saying "Test Drive" and provide necessary information to the player that they're given max 5 minutes or something along those words.
  7. Is it really worth moving everything to Mirror Park? Spawning the player I understand, it's a good move. But moving everything to accommodate that just does not sit with me. I think having things the way they are encourages the player to explore, but also remember that the RP hub is located at Mirror Park. Not to mention, the commodities themselves e.g. DMV isn't that far away from Mirror Park either. I feel like this is a solution to a short temporary problem.
  8. Thanks everyone. Getting used to GTA V shenanigans is definitely something.
  9. Hey, Been a while since I've touched RP, most likely 2018. Started off with SA-MP back in 2007, been part of that community for a very long time and have to say I'm not that surprised that it died. Recently I was hit with a nostalgia train, remembering the good old days and I thought I might try it out once again which proved to be really difficult... Especially looking for a text-based roleplay community on FiveM or Rage-MP. Personally was never a fan of GTA V nor its RP style (thanks streamers) and since SA-MP RP died with the community, and MTA was never my forte (despite trying out Owl back when it was on MTA) this was the only way in. My RP skills are currently rusty, but give me some time and a little breather when you see Frank Jakobson and I will be back in the game in no time. So see you in game.
