  1. Too much work, absolutely not worth their time right now. In a few years, when they aren't busy with way more important projects? sure why not? Aside from that, there are some legal implications about having an official exporter that may or may not be very dangerous for LO, especially considering that they don't own the APB rights anymore. This analogy is completely wrong. Think of it more like this. Ninjaripper is a toy gun, a cheat is a real gun. From 10 meters away you see someone holding a gun to someone else's head. Are you going to let them pull the trigger because you think it's a toy gun, or are you going to stop them because it could be real?
  2. You don't get it, do you? It doesn't matter what the program does, but HOW it does it. EAC is a program. It can't think about what something is. It detects cheat-like behaviour, and therefore blocks it. Trying to get around this without also opening a window for actual cheats to come through is simply not possible.
  3. If you seriously think that the rendering community alone is going to make this game "great again", you're legitimately delusional. To explain why what you ask is impossible: Ninjaripper is a third-party injector/wrapper based software. It works by adding code to the game client which is normally not there. Very few software use this functionality, and most of those are cheats. This is why EAC blocks it. to EAC, ninjaripper looks and behaves exactly like a very rudimentary cheat. If you allow Ninjaripper through EAC, cheat makers could just make their cheat look like Ninjaripper, and be allowed through.
  4. This has been notoriously buggy with the key to the city pack also in my experience
  5. This is already a thing, was a reward in 2018 xmas iirc

    Gifting

    Gifting was disabled due to incidence of credit card fraud and false charge backs, as those have serious financial and legal implications for LO. Until they find a way to effectively stop this from being an issue (unlikely, but not impossible), I don't see a way for gifting to come back.
  7. Do you have an RTX card? If you do, that's the culprit and you'll need to use the advanced launcher to set your graphics to bare minimum
  8. As a Citadel player, I can't remember the last time I encountered a macro so obvious that it was noticeable.
  9. Few outfits I made since my last post. WTB more clothing inventory.
  10. RIOT was not a failure because it did what LO set out to do, get familiar with how APB works and finish implementing a way to detect city blocks which has been said multiple times will play a role in future missions, events etc. This is your opinion. My opinion is that the Thunder is super fun to use and easily my favourite shotgun. The New Glory has nothing to do with the original N-TEC 7c, other than sharing the model. LO also didn't make the model for the Showstopper for that matter, so the argument is kinda moot. What exactly else should they do? Premium is one of the very few things that they can give out that really only compensates the people who lost out, since giving anything else would require them to filter players who are actually active, which is incredibly difficult to do. I'll also let you know that giving out premium or it's equivalents is basically what most MMOs do as downtime compensation. Also, here are your options for the server: New York, or none at all. The EU servers are currently stuck in customs, so instead of leaving the EU servers down over the weekend LO decided to host them in NY while they have to wait. Completely out of their control.
  11. Title says everything? What time did the servers go down? Did the Login, EU or NA server go down? All of them? What error message does it show? Did the servers recover by themselves?
  12. Very nice quiz, especially part 3 gave me quite a few oof moments. Definitely worth having a go for anyone interested in the lore!
  13. I quit once, thought it was for good. 2 years later I crawled back though. Nobody can truly quit this game.
  14. Don't you know? getting stuck on parts of walls you were physically unable to see is a meta strat
  15. I'm going to make a bold statement here, but I think LO has a LOT of way more important things to work on than the server shutdown countdown.
  16. As Kev said, this is gonna go back to normal after the Halloween event ends. This has happened every year since the horseman event was introduced, and is caused by some workarounds to make the fog look the way it does iirc.
  17. Adding NPCs is not going to happen (any time soon anyways), mainly because adding NPCs is a lot more work than most people anticipate. Especially any kind of NPC that is supposed to play an objective based game such as APB is. NPCs would be an absolute non-challenge to play against, see Counter-Strike bots as an example. On top of that APB is a multitude more complicated than CS is, meaning the bots needed to run it would need to be just as complicated, and they'd run on the server, which can struggle enough as it is. And this isn't even addressing issues like pathing, logic or prioritisation in the AI.
  18. You need to rename the APB_EAC exe file before you rip, and you can only rip from the character selection.
  19. Brilliant idea, why didn't LO think of this before? oh wait....
  20. In general, file edits are against the ToS, so no, removing or changing the audio files is not allowed.
  21. Define "basic pathing." Any pathing that isn't just simply what APB civilians already do is by definition not simple. Any free-form path finding is complex and requires an absolute butt load of level design work
  22. The "AI" in APB is ridiculously basic. It can only travel on preset paths, and if knocked off this path (crashing into a car) they are completely incapable of even finding their way back onto it. An AI that just swarms a player is likely not too complicated either, but it would have to be able to do a lot of things that they cannot do at all atm, which includes stuff like: Open doors, climb ladders/walls, respect collisions of the world and props in their pathing, car jack players (so that you can't just sit in a car and insta win) and a whole pile of stuff I can't even think of right now. In general, PvE is off the table for the foreseeable future, APB has a LOT more pressing concerns to work through than adding a buttload of systems for a zombie horde mode
  23. With that we get back to the other point, which is that increasing the texture res is a MONUMENTAL undertaking. There are several hundreds of textures that would need to be completely remade from scratch, and there'd be absolutely no guarantee that the aesthetics would remain the same, considering that the artists that made the original textures are long long long gone. It's also entirely possible that some items don't have their source high-poly models left anymore, which would just further increase the already absolutely massive workload. Not to mention that any artists working on this would obviously not be able to make new content.
