  1. WELCOME! I hope you brought plenty of honey to share with us. It's delicious. Should go without saying but be sure to keep a weapon on you at all times. The streets of San Paro are not very nice, and the forums tend to follow the same path. What am I saying, I'm sure you will do just fine. You have insurance, right?
  2. I just want to clear up that you were not banned for expressing your opinion. The server is all about expressing your opinion. You were banned, the first time (by another mod), for harassment (against multiple patrons), using racial slurs, and threatening to repeatedly harass the server if moderation is used against you. You were banned, the second time (by me), for ban evading after you held true to your promise to return to the server after you were banned the first time. Moving on, Most of your points just make it seem like you haven't really played the game, or are just purposely trying to spread misinformation. In comparison to every other weapon in the game (not talking about balancing issues), I don't see any problems with the ones released by LO. Sure, LO has had some mistakes with some things (as seen by a majority of the players) but none of it is something I would call as being "worse than the G1 days." The downtime this month is laughably ignorable in comparison to the previous G1 days. On the issue of bugs, bad implementations, etc. all I have seen of LO is that they try to push fixes or completely pullback things ASAP when/if it is needed. Something that was almost never done by G1 in the past. I'd say (obviously this is my own opinion) that the only time G1 could be looked at and seen as being fairly decent would be the first couple of years (2011-2013, maybe 2014). Eventually, everything just went to hell and the only thing I would count as decent are the JMBs released (even some of those had problems for a long time before getting fixed).
  3. I am a fan of the EMP grenade idea, but I am not completely sold on the look. Maybe that is all they could do right now, but I would hope for something a little more hi-tech looking in the future. (Unless they are going for a built in my garage look, or a prototype look.) I was bored enough here at work so I made this in MS paint. lol I tried to make something following the rough shape of the grenade, so it would fit into the player models hand the same way all the other grenades do. It's far from perfect, but I like the look more than the copper wire wrapped look from the newsletter. Either way, can't wait for the grenade to be in the game. It sounds fun.
  4. Q1. & Q2. I'm Mr. Sadira because my wife is Sadira. Q3. I don't really remember names after a mission and I normally don't play missions. I got nothing.
  5. I don't see whats so hard about winning the skin, and then just stick to 2nd Place for your oh-so precious JT. Maybe the best thing would have been to have kept the 1st Place prize as only the skin and make JT the reward for everything else to prevent this, but I'm sure they didn't think about the usual APB "want the best prize? git gud" way of thinking for this event in particular. If you can't give up 1st place after winning once, it just sounds like greed with no thought for being considerate to others in an event where the important prize (the skin) is from being 1st place. They made their rules (stated in the districts to allow others to win 1st place and have a chance at the skin) and then they eventually chose to actually enforce it. If you have the skin, and either win again or still keep making it to top without stopping right before you win, then my opinion is that you fit into the category of people able to be removed to give others a chance. Now, if you don't have the skin, or didn't win again, and you were kicked then there is a problem, but according to the conversation on Discord this is not the case and you did win the event.
  6. I'll look into getting something like that when I get out of work, and after eating dinner.
  7. Does this paved path stop once it gets to hell or does it continue on through and out the other side? Could be like when you have to go through a period of torment and pain before you can return to a more peaceful time?
  8. USPStyle gave them the source code because LO did not know if BE would detect the advanced launcher program as harmful. This was just a precaution since most players use the advanced launcher to edit their config and start the game, and they did not want BE to give false-positives for it. What the advanced launcher does, though, is just make .ini edits easier with a GUI. You do not need the advanced launcher to change the config files, and as far as we have seen, BE does not detect harm with certain changes to user-editable config files. I could be wrong, so correct me with proof if I am. There are other config files that you can change for aesthetic purposes that are not included as part of the advanced launcher, and these do not trigger BE (as of right now at least). To make it easier to understand, you can do the same thing that the advanced launcher's main purpose is with Notepad, Word, etc. and it is not adding any additional files to the game. Crosshair shaders add additional files to the game which are not normally a part of base APB. This is technically considered illegal game modification, since APB was not built with modding in mind.
  9. I would assume there is a line between certain types of griefing and what is, or is not, allowed. Until we get an official statement though, I would take it on as per-case basis and probably a decision from individual GMs to give a warning or not.
  10. RNG is RNG. There are JMBs that I spent $100+ before I got a legendary. There have also been JMBs where I just spent $5 and got two of the associated legendary.
  11. I do believe that Matt's response was that they are looking into ways to add crosshair options built-in to the game. They just don't like people using 3rd-party or edits because it should not be needed and is just bad game design to not have that option for your players. I could be wrong, but I have a memory of something like this being said.
  12. I use Advanced Launcher to increase every setting so my game can look the best it possibly can because I'm a man of aesthetics. (Put slider on Ultra, and the customize to increase everything else.) Since the days of RTW I have always had a rather beefy computer and played APB at "Max" settings. I'm just like most modern gamers who want the game to look the very best. I've been playing video games for almost 3 decades now (first video game I played was 27 years ago) and I'm not going back to playing them with "Low" settings. I still play at ~100 FPS with my setting choices and rarely experience any stuttering with the game (which, when I do, is easily fixed by restarting the game; it is also not a problem with APB alone but a problem with GPU drivers and certain games.) There was a time that I used a crosshair shader when I felt I needed learning assistance when I first started running with shotguns a lot back around 2012-2013, and my recorded videos from that time show the crosshair in full view. I do not need one now because I've learned how to keep my aim mostly on point through practice and muscle memory (except for my random hand muscle spasms that cause me to fling my mouse a few inches off target, but that's a medical thing).
  13. People need to understand that different tax laws where the company is located and where you live affects how taxes, etc. are handled on your purchases. Some people who have posted don't get taxed when they buy through Steam. Well, I get taxed when I buy through Steam. Some people here get taxed when buying through PayPal. I do not get taxed when buying through PayPal. PaymentWall charged tax when I used them to make a CC purchase. I'm switched to using PayPal exclusively now because I do not get charged tax as long as I go through them. Doesn't matter if I used Debit/CC or bank withdrawal so long as I go through PayPal to do it. This will obviously be different for others due to where they live and their local tax laws and how PayPal has to abide by those laws.
  14. Eligibility wouldn't be an issue for me if it didn't decide I wasn't eligible until 10-15 minutes into the survey. I managed to get two surveys to work properly and get the G1C awarded, but getting 2 out of 20 to actually work and not waste 2 hours on two different nights is not my idea of a good solution to get that 20 G1C you're short to buy what you need. In the end, though, I guess it's a small price to pay to get free G1C instead of spending $5 to get <20 G1C. I've decided it's worth it to spend the $5 instead of having to sit through that crap again. My free time is valuable and $5 is a much cheaper option. The worst survey was the one that didn't kick me out right away but kept giving me different surveys back to back for 30 minutes and then decided that I wasn't eligible.
