Virtual Market Update - Streets of Rage - April 27th, 2017

Recommended Posts

Introduction

This update provides more variety to the drug dealing scene and aims to create a dynamic and involved ecosystem in the criminal underworld. For too long the Virtual Market revolving around narcotics has been too simple. This update seeks to make it more complex and varied without burdening the FT whom calculates it. These new systems seek to rectify the problem of minimal roleplay by making the drug dealing scene in the game far more in-depth. The drug dealing will now be a more prolonged affair that takes into account several factors. Below you will find pertinent information that describes the broad-strokes of the new system and how it affects you, the player. These are some of the new features:

 

Drug Operation

Each form submitted now represents a Drug Operation. Meaning a particular brand that you as a narcotics pusher has established in a particular area with your virtual customer-base. This means that whoever holds the product makes the rules. You can assign others to operate drug territories in your stead and send multiple guys out on the streets to assure that your sales go smoothly. These Drug Operations will be sustained over long periods of time and will require a greater degree of communication with the player and their FT Handler.

 

Experience on the Streets

The longer that one keeps and maintains a Drug Operation, the more proficient one becomes. We have systems designed to mimic the growth and expansion of one's drug dealing operation. The longer you establish a street presence and continue to provide your virtual customers with what they desire the more grateful and dependent they become. Hence the more notoriety you have for providing the best narcotics this city has to offer, the more success you will experience with sales.

 

Drug Territory

No longer will be where you choose to sell your drugs simply a choice of convenience. Now it will matter where you sell and what your product is according to the demographic of the area. Also, the competition that other create will ultimately affect your sales. This will create a whole new sphere of drug violence focused on the total domination of a particular drug market. Below in the Index you will find a map that visualizes the major drug territories that you can operate in.

 

Trap Houses and Drug Hotspots

Previously, dealing in interiors was not allowed due to the lack of risk. However, the new system allows you to deal safely to the locals from how. However, keep in mind that your lack of visibility will hurt your sales. This is only temporary as the longer you continue to deal from a particular location, the more your sales increase. So does the risk involved. One's own home can easily be deemed a Trap House which carries the potential threat of law enforcement crackdown.

 

Also, certain businesses and establishments will have particular tastes when it comes to their drug consumption. This will mimic real-life to the best of our ability. So keep in mind what you are selling and where. 

 

Individual Dealing & Ad-hoc Drug Gangs

With this new system we have extended it to those flying solo as well. Individual characters will be able to take advantage of this new system as Independent drug operators. Beware though, this is a dangerous game. However, to the bold there are untold riches awaiting you. Are you smarter than the average thug?

 

Gangs that solely due to collaboration within this system will be examined and evaluated by FT as this new system is rolled out. There are many small unnamed gangs IRL that operate solely around narcotics. There are systems in place that will simulate such fluid affinity groups. There are strength in numbers, they say. But also, nothing in this world is free. Tensions over drug profits can quickly arise if you do not treat your compatriots properly. The choice is yours.

 

Requirements

  • Include the necessary information when filing out the form. This reduce the workload a ton.
    • Location on Map (Screenshot of F11)
    • Character's Surroundings (Screenshot)
    • Characters Inventory w/ Drugs (Screenshot)
    • Logs of Each Session (Logs)
  • Complete and comprehensive filing of the FORM
    • Be concise and provide as much information as possible.
    • Focus on ONE location is highly suggested.
    • Unsure of area? Use THIS MAP
  • Attentiveness to Communications 
  • Dedication & Activity
    • This system is best when those involved are active and involved.
    • It rewards those who spend time with it and make the drug scene more interesting.
    • The more time spent utilizing it, results in a greater experience.

 

This update is designed and catered towards Street Gangs and Drug Organizations. Hybrid organizations may take advantage.

Traditional organized crime factions have a different role in the ecosystem, but can participate as individuals. Not as a whole.

 

I will be leaving this thread open to field any questions and concerns by the player-base. This thread will be edited as time goes on with a FAQs to follow.

Lets say everyone knowns that area belongs to X, and someone was caught in the area dealing, auto ck clause or an app to be made?

 

On topic, this is a very good idea, thanks FT.

I would suggest to make an app. Handle it as any other disagreement.

I would rather people not resort to killing all the time, and would love to see more creative ways for people to resolve the issue.

The longer you work with the system you'll realize that it's rather complex behind the scenes.

And can produce some varied results depending on what the people involved do.

Let the situation escalate naturally, from negotiating to threats, acts of violence etc, possibly eventually leading to killings.

I always wondered why the FT started limiting all factions to 1 spot per week and started capping amounts weekly. 

Factions were getting 10 kilos a week but were only able to push 1. 

This is a step in the right direction. Getting factions to work together or compete. Finally. Competition.

As time progresses. This thread isn't about that, however, please direct any overall FT questions to a PC.

Questions on this thread should be about this update only.

Although turf wars and business negotiations would be great to have back again.

I was implying the latter. Business arrangements and such. I'm sure alot of interesting situations will arise out of this.

No, read the thread.

 

A map has also been added to the official form so there is no confusion on where the districts are.
