  1. Customization - I really do not know any other game that allows this much freedom of creation.
  2. Yesterday I had serious issues with general lag, constant lag spikes, freezes and FPS drops as low as 5 FPS in the Financial Districts (EU Server). So I wonder if something significant has been changed server-wise. A year ago I was able to play just fine, even on a full server. Somehow things went downhill steadily from that point on. Nothing has changed on my end as I am still using the very same computer, have the same internet provider and am even utilizing the advanced launcher (without it I could not run the game). Granted my laptop is an old potato with low specs and I have to run the game pretty much with very low/minimum settings, but like I said I did not have these massive issues a year ago (sure it did not ran great back then either but it surely did not run as bad as it does now). So what changed? Is anyone of you guys having the same problem/experience?
  3. The weekly installment of the "LAPD Squad Meet Up" is being held in its usual slot on Wednesday. As always it is going down in combination with the "Chipp's Car Club" (CCC) player event. The starting time for the "LAPD Squad Meet Up" is around 19:00 GMT. We usually meet up at least an hour or two before CCC starts and do regular patrols together as well as custom high speed chases (depending on whether or not open world crime is going on). If you want to participate - on the cop or the criminal side - just let us know. The CCC player event does start at 21:00 GMT and the location for this week should be the Financial Gold district. Please use either the CCC Discord LINK or the CCC APB Forum LINK for more details about the CCC event and the specifics about the district's event location. Members of LAPD Squad will again take care of traffic control during the street races after the CCC car show (where participants present their newest customisations). Any other enforcer or criminal interested in helping out - and thus doing something entirely different in game for a change - is welcomed to keep the traffic at bay with us. If you have time to attend we will see you on the streets. In any case please stay safe out there and make sure to use all necessary precautions to stay healthy!
  4. Wonder how APB fares on consoles - any console user can chime in on this and offer his/her experience? I also assume there is no cross-platform play between the console and PC versions, right?
  5. Hmmm - what about making dethreathing impossible from the get go? - If someone gains silver they can not drop down to bronze or green and are restricted to play on silver servers (but may join gold servers). - If someone gains gold they can not drop down to silver, bronze or green and are restricted to play on gold servers. This would mean that those players that are constantly stomping bronzes will be silver in no time and then have to play on silver servers against other silver players. If they are really good enough on those silver servers they will eventually gain gold and be pitched against other golds on the gold servers. That should result in full silver and gold servers since I see LOTS and LOTS and LOTs of golds and silver in bronze each day. Being pitched against golds and silvers in bronze district missions usually results in players like me being shredded to pieces as we certainly pose no real threat to them. No fun for us certainly, and whether or not it is fun for them... - ...well probably these players like to stomp others or they would not come to bronze instead of playing on silver or gold. But I like to think that most people rather would like to have a bit of a challenge when playing - right? Anyway if dethreating is removed people would have to play against others closer to their skill level - that should equal an increase in the population on silver and gold servers. (And it might be a good idea to let NA players come to and join EU servers and the other way around.)

Hopefully you will have time to attend. Please stay safe out there and use all necessary precautions to stay healthy! -------------- Note that last week, due to a changed maintenance/patch schedule, the "LAPD Squad Meet Up" could not take place. Nothing about this week's schedule has been posted yet, but we will keep you informed, if it has any impact on either our clan meeting or CCC.
  7. Glad the servers came up eventually so at least CCC could take place. Thanks again for the screenshot collage Fox!
  8. Yes please - that would be great! @AlgizGI - Are you sure there is an option already? There is definitely one to turn off those "Death Themes" (did that as soon as it became available), but do not think there is one for music yet.
  9. @Officer_Foxtail - Thanks for posting Fox and remembering to take a screenshot!
  10. You guessed right - tomorrow is Wednesday and thus time for the the weekly installment of the "LAPD Squad Meet Up", held - as always - in combination with the "Chipp's Car Club" (CCC) player event.

  11. @Shawnna - Thanks Shawnna, this is much appreciated! We are in fact happy to have taken up this weekly "responsibility". It not only fits the LAPD Squad role playing style, but at the same time it is a great opportunity to engage with fellow players who also like to do their own thing and be super creative! We are looking forward each week to seeing the new customisations the CCC participants are turning up with. It is certainly no overstatement when I say that not a single week as passed, where we have not been amazed by the huge amount of creativity and ingenuity displayed all around. And the street races after the presentation do remind us of the days of playing Midtown Madness! The best thing is that people coming to CCC are all relaxed, friendly and welcoming - no matter if veterans are dropping by or new faces are showing up. Even the races themselves are good-natured affairs since purposely crashing into other racers is frowned upon by all. Things are very different from the "normal" toxicity so rampart in APB. Essentially if a player loves customisations he/she should check this player event out. Even if they only stay for the car show part of the CCC event - to present and show off what they made or just enjoy looking around - it is totally worth it in my humble opinion. We love you guys and thank you for having us

  13. @Officer_Foxtail - Well done on the videos and thanks for sharing! Good that you "picked up the torch" so to speak and now make videos as well (especially since FC is sadly MIA at the moment). Generates interest for APB Reloaded and does show the type of RP we do. Keep them coming! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Tomorrow the weekly installment of the "LAPD Squad Meet Up" is coming up, held - as always - in combination with the "Chipp's Car Club" (CCC) player event.
