FT Update - September 17th, 2017

 

Heya,

 

I apologize for the mix-up with the last update posted by Franco. This is the new official fancy pantsy update for September.

 

New leadership

I am now the Faction Team Leader, and will remain as Legal Supervisor as well. @LokiHavok will remain as the Illegal Supervisor. Additionally, we'd like to welcome @Peaky to the team on the Illegal side.

 

Legal Factions

 

(Mis)Use of Faction Privileges

The faction team will be constantly monitoring, particularly from now on, for misuse of faction privileges. This will not be tolerated and the Faction Team reserves the right to enter any faction at any point without notice to check for potential abuse. Every interior and vehicle in particular should have a actual tangible use to a faction and doing things such as setting personal cars or interiors to factions to change the interior or avoid hogging a vehicle slot will not be tolerated. This should particularly be noted by those now just receiving their faction status.

 

New Legal Faction System

As requested following the previous update, we re-evaluated Legal Factions and their f3 system to lower the barrier of entry. Note requirements such as membership and interior slots can be waived on a case by case basis where a faction needs f3 status to function, i.e, for a Dealership or Property Selling faction The new system is as follows:

 

 

 

Incorporated

Incorporated, as the name implies, is a base level company for any group of friends starting a business. Incorporated will be available to any group of committed friends starting a business, with the following requirements/benefits:

  • CEO/Owner must have minimum 50 hours, 20 on the character applying. This is to ensure players will stay on the community and not leave and hold up a faction slot.
  • Must have three active members at time of applying.
  • Must have a faction thread. No more requirement for how long it's up.
  • 5 interior slots, 5 vehicle slots (15 vehicle slots if a Dealership)
  • Incorporated status can be achieved via a public contact or being accepted as a Dealership via Vehicle Team.

 

Established

Established maintains as before; with several weeks of confirmed activity, a active faction thread and updates, and several members, a legal faction can/will be updated to Established.

  • Granted after several weeks of continued activity with a active faction thread, five active members and no incidents during Incorporated phase.
  • Given 10 interior slots and 10 vehicle slots (again, 15 vehicle slots if dealership)
  • Custom interior and skin uploads.

 

Official

After several months of continued activity and contributions to the community legal factions may be bumped to Official.

  • Must be active for several months with a active and detailed faction thread, ten active members, and a positive contribution to the community as a whole.
  • 10 interior slots and 15 vehicle slots.
  • Script support within reason
  • Subforum(s) under Legal Factions
  • Guidance/support from the Faction Team

 

Faction Promotions

The following factions have been accepted or promoted. Report in game for a FT leader to set your f3's as needed.

  • Griffin Automotive(Formerly LS Occasions) Dealership > Established @Deuce
  • Petrov Realty Unofficial > Incorporated @Salsa
  • Arkwright Corporation Unofficial > Incorporated @Kaasisbaas
  • Sabzanov Construction Unofficial > Incorporated @LikeMike
  • Verdant Corporation Unofficial > Incorporated @Vubstersmurf
  • M-Corporation Unofficial > Incorporated @OXIGENT
  • Vista Enterprises Unofficial > Incorporated @SazLore

 

Congratulations all around!

 

 

Illegal Factions

 

Faction Organization Classifications

In order to better create a realistic underworld in Los Santos, the Faction Team will be using a new standard in its interactions with illegal factions. Along with the Regular-Establish-Official grading system this new classification will help us better serve the entire illegal RP sphere and the factions themselves. Going forward, this will allow us to have a better grasp as a team on what we can do to create a more dynamic and interdependent illegal RP sector.

 

  • Tier 1 - Gangs and Cliques:

    • Criminal gangs and local crews whom are confined to a small locality. This includes street gangs sets, prison gangs, and youth crews.

  • Tier 2 - Domestic Organized Crime

    • Criminal organizations that are forged in America. From LCN to homegrown syndicates that have their origins in the United States.

  • Tier 3 - Transnational Organized Crime

    • Criminal organizations that have connections to other more powerful organizations abroad. Capable of complex cooperation that cross international borders.

  • H&O - Hybrids and Other

    • Criminal organizations that don’t fit neatly into the aforementioned tiers. From outlaw motorcycle clubs to political extremists.

 

What does this mean for the illegal player groups? Quite simply this means that now there will be a faction team that can be more understanding of the RP concepts that factions are based around. This also means that certain mechanics involving the Faction Team and the Virtual Market will be catered around certain Tiers. We hope this will encourage more intra-faction dependency and generally a more realistic criminal underworld.  

 

Street of Rage V3

Overall, the new VM system that has been rolled out is far superior to what existed before Streets of Rage. However, it has not been without it’s shortcomings. We will be designing a more streamlined version of the street corner VM that will result in a better experience for the elements of the team handling the backend and the player who is participating in the Drug VM.

 

In the coming week, as series of changes to the rules pertaining to the VM will be rolled out in segments to assure a seamless transition from the older method of verification & processing to the new system.

 

Contraband Export System

 

Currently in the works is the Contraband Export System. It will be the crux of a series of modules that will simulate the the domestic & transnational export of various illicit goods from Los Santos. These modules will be mini-systems of their own that are designed to work with the CES to be applied as they are developed. From stolen vehicles to human trafficking. These will be the focus of the coming updates to hit the Virtual Market in the foreseeable future. Here is a little peek:

There's no updates for individual illegal factions this update - but stay tuned for our next update!

 

Signed,

OwlGaming Community,

OwlGaming Faction Team.

vm for news article please!!!

This exactly. I've wondered for a while as to why VM no longer applied to anything on the legal side, and is literally only there for the people who do illegal RP. People should be able to make news articles, and get some sort of reward out of what they made, dependent on the amount of likes it gets. I'm pretty sure there used to be a system like this, but it was removed. #MakeLegalRPGreatAgain

yo ardman idk if vm is still the same as it used to be, but if the system is still set for street gangs to control districts, remove that and change it to street(s) cos a street gang on this contains like 6 members, servers too small to have a crip set control willow lol.
