  1. 200IQ play right here. Seriously, that's a good idea to at least for now, prevent unwanted ear (and basically any other) no-no.
  2. Well I'm sure wondering now. I mean it could be any reason some games are beginning to scratch that customisation itch but never with enough depth and really why should they bother with so much customisation when everyone is going to be forced to turf those characters when a slightly updated version of the same game but with a brand new price tag is released the following year? Also APB is free which I think scratches a lot of people's good places. Oooh also most games goes Console first then PC after, and really you need a mouse + keyboard to really take advantage of APB's APBness. Lies, i totally saw you online the other day.
  3. Ah yeah, I'm assuming this will be done after the Matchmaking and Server Phasing stuff is done. But you're right - it will be easily exploited in a way that will disadvantage players that are simply good at the game and not cheating or toxic.
  4. That and the fact that nothing has really come close to replacing it. They sure "tried" or at least others pretended that they did, but those who know what make APB, APB, know why those games failed and APB remains.
  5. INALOE but AFAIK it's tolerated and probably part of the reasons why they're being awesome and working on getting us a beautiful Mute Themes button. The only issue is the hassle of having to do it almost every time there is a patch, or whenever it does a scan of your game folders and FWIW if there is something spoopy with your files, EAC won't let you into the game but don't stake your account on my behalf, it only happened to me once when I was replacing APB_Catcher and once they fixed that from doing it's cloning trick EAC spun into gear and wouldn't let me do it again.
  6. That’s part of the double-edged nature of the solution, it could be mitigated by maybe having the blacklist a small list so a single player can't have the entire district blacklisted. Or maybe having the blacklist reset every week? Day? Or on log out? But if a player has gotten to the point where they can't find any OP due to having the whole district blacklisted - the issue probably exists with that player and not the district, like everyone in this thread has stated the whole game isn't full of cheaters it's just a couple of toxic ones that ruin the fun, so we should have the choice to not play against those since detection and prosecution of toxic players is a long and difficult process. *IF* players want to abuse the blacklist by putting players who simply beat them on the list rather than were being toxic - that's their issue imo, you reap what you sow. I do see another exploit thinking about it - a gold puts all the golds on the blacklist and now they only get matched with silvers/bronzes once the matchmaking goes into "find any player" mode. But that can be solved by removing the "find any player" mode. Again, if a player is blacklisting so many other players that they run out of OP - the issue is them, not the game.
  7. I just want to use this opportunity to plug my "Player Blacklist" idea - basically works like the /ignore list, but instead of ignoring their themes/banners/chat, it tells the Matchmaking system "Hey, I don't want to be matched against this player ever again." and then it removes them from your matchmaking queue for as long as they are on the blacklist for that player. It's a double-edged sword I know, especially with such a low population - but it does stop the "constantly being matched against the same toxic group" issue that ruins district pops. Sucks for FC though where there is no matchmaking but since we're talking about genie wishes here - if Player X joins a FC and which has the majority of players who have Player X on their Blacklist, then Player X gets infinitely stuck as a neutral player in "Waiting for Players" mode. It'll probably take a wizard to code all that in, but I can dream! Also I know that most cheaters can just reroll - but then it works just like the /ignore list where you've got to be vigilant and delete/cycle names/players who you haven't seen in a while because no doubt those throw away characters are long gone.
  8. Not all the guns and their variants are up for trial unfortunately - also last time I bitched about it - some agreed that 30mins-2hours isn't really enough to full appreciate a gun but I get that the ARMAS store users have that same dilemma. My particular one is that I bought base (no slotted) versions only to find out that I *should* always get slots. Little gripe I know, but still pangs I bit that I cant trade it in for a % JT refund and buy the next one. I mean, it's not the expense that's the issue - it's more the fact that when I do earn enough JTs to get the slotty ones - I'll then have a bunch of basic weapons I'll never use again just eating up space and I hate deleting things.
  9. It's true - there is no "best gun" to buy the best thing about the new JT weapons is that there is enough variety now that you can pick the role you want and then have a selection to choose from. My only gripe is that there is no way to refund/sell JT weapons if your selection happens to be a bad/regrettable one.
  10. Would be nice if information like this was an Official Permanent stickied Thread somewhere in the forums that's dedicated to customisations/outfits.
  11. Well nuts, this thread just reminded me that I forgot to use that Halloween Code. Also forgot about the Contest.
  12. I set my brightness to wherever the Glow in the Dark skin works.
  13. Orlenz is Prentiss, but he's got a Praetorian gauntlet?
  14. Oh ok. But let's say Cop Shirt (M) is #CS01M and they did make both MF versions, could unlocking that not unlock #CS01F in the background? Or would that like double the amount of data a character takes up? But also if they did MF everything they could just make the algorithm just swap the #M with #F, no?
  15. How about making all clothing available to both genders? Then gender change would just be a quick swap, yeah? I've always wondered why they decided to make things M/F only. (*cough* wtf Cop Shirt *cough*)
