  1. I'm not sure about Steam, I've never attempted to purchase G1C through Steam but I'd pretty surprised if taxes weren't applicable to CC purchases. It may not show up on Armas interface but it may be something as a separate transaction your CC provider does on the backend. I'm obviously not going to purchase something to try it out.
  2. It's VAT. The VAT is 24% in Greece which is consistent with the picture you sent. I live in Australia and I pay nothing really like 10% extra. You should get this whenever you go to purchase something in the Armas marketplace telling you which taxes/fees are applicable to your purchase. "All prices include 10% sales tax. The name for this tax varies by country (VAT, GST, JCT)."
  3. Piercing is really overrated.

    Nvidia Ansel Support?

    The freestyle tool is pretty cool as well, I've played around with that a little in Skyrim. Basically allows you to play with shader settings while you're in game in real time, I'd like a feature like that in APB, I think it'd be pretty cool. Unfortunately the tool is still in beta and has a limited catalogue of games that it works in but the feature is still very much there and I imagine with the upgrade to 3.5 LO are going to have to get into contact with a representative at NVIDIA anyway to push new drivers.

    - Overall weapon balance pass

    Jesus, as it has been previously re-iterated over and over the person who's currently working on the balance for APB was one of the original developers for APB that worked on the game balance. LO specifically hired that person to do that task but LO have yet to disclose who they're talking about. There has been speculation about which developer they're actually talking about when they brang it up during the QnA. I welcome changes to balance, it's one of my biggest issues with APB and I'm glad they're finally looking into the Anubis hopefully they look into the RSA, SWARM and ISSR-A because those weapons for all intents and purposes are POS.
  6. Just suspend someone who repeatedly posts suggestions in general for 7 days I'd say. Give them 3 warnings and then a 7 day suspension.

    Even if you were to get a mission going you'd just be matched with the same people over and over. I don't like playing the same people over and over, because people get familiar and I don't wanna have to play against people I know very well.
  8. I think it was clearly stated that if there was enough substantial evidence to warrant your ban then they'd not unban you. So in your case they have enough evidence where there is no doubt in their mind that the ban was reasonable.

    Regardless of what people want for the server now it's clear that the server needs a more active player base before any decision can be made. Hopefully the update to 3.5 or 4 will attract more people to the game but I'm not holding my breath, it's a stretch but if that doesn't materialize in getting more players then I could see no future for Han.

    Yes we're aware and if you've seen replies within previous threads on this issue including this one. We're trying to make the case that isn't the correct procedure to take. Giving people the option to migrate to Jericho is a nice gesture. It however doesn't help with the underlying issue, that and a lot of the people on Han already have seperate accounts on Jericho anyway. The reason people on Han may choose to stay on Han are purely for network based reasons and Jericho cannot accommodate that niche for SEA and ANZ players.

    Why..? The remaining population of the server is either Australian, New Zealanders with the minority being South East Asian. Besides are the South East players getting such a raw deal having to play on a server in Japan..? If what you're saying is actually true and it actually isn't wouldn't the South East Asian players of stayed because as I said they wouldn't be getting a bad experience right now. As I recall the server slowly started to die once they had decided to move it from Australia to Singapore because everyone got pissed off with the decision that G1 had decided on. I also recall the submarine cable being damaged between Singapore and Australia at that time which further caused huge instability with latency for Australian players. The submarine cable being damaged is actually a pretty common occurrence these days, it happens at least once a year and that can last up to 2 months, if the break is bad enough. That's just one of the very few issues with placing a submarine cable in a high traffic area where there are a tonne of fishing boats. https://www.computerweekly.com/news/450431205/Australia-Singapore-submarine-cable-connection-cut-again This was just last year. ^ And this is this year https://subtelforum.com/perth-singapore-subsea-cable-down-again/

    So far, so great

    The stuttering I was experiencing is gone.
  13. Happy that this milestone is out of the way now so I don't have to deal with the plethora of threads asking about BattleEye or generally on the conversation of BattleEye itself. So I guess that means the engine update is next, which is what I'm looking forward to more honestly.

    It's a dumb argument. The fact that there are plenty of games already available that offer these customization options to players is a detail not lost on me. But it seems to be lost on a lot of people in this thread. There are literally dozens of monitors available now that have the ability to even enable a crosshair, I'm actually using one. As I recall it sounds like Matt wants to enable features like that eventually anyway. There is literally 0 discussion to be had because in my mind, it's just pretty much the consensus you have that much customization in your game if you're going to have your game on PC in 2018. The hold crouch or toggle sprint are features that should've been there from the very beginning. When players integrate those features themselves via configuring the ini files I just don't have anything against it and I completely understand as to why they'd do that. It shouldn't of been an oversight by G1 not to notice that those features were surely needed sooner but decided instead to go with the heavy handed approach and ostracize the players that decided to just implement those features themselves. The Advanced Launcher in itself does pretty much the same thing, it changes features not normally available through the ingame settings, I wouldn't see that as an exploitative tool and I'm sure many other people here wouldn't either. I feel it's a double standard for someone to use advanced launcher and with the same mind ostracize people who edit ini files manually.

    HAN migration to Jericho

    Didn't realize your ping was so bad, I'm not sure how you can play so good on Jericho with that ping. I get 191 on Jericho and 110 on HAN and even I complain about that.

    So do we not have AntiCheat at this time?

    Go right ahead, E3 is right around the corner, plenty of new games to be released.
  17. Banning cheaters isn't going to improve the game all that much, not sure why people keep hyping up BattleEye. The actual biggest addition for preventing cheaters isn't even BattleEye itself, it's the addition of a new engine upgrade. You implement BattleEye and the hack websites only need to create a new bypass. You upgrade the engine however and the hack websites need to take down their cheat and re-code everything and on a low population game like APB, it's going to be hard for those websites to find the financial incentive to continue to support the cheat any longer.
  18. Huh..? I'm not under the assumption that BattleEye would be implemented today, I crushed that expectation days ago.
  19. Pretty sure regular server maintenance is today, was sort of thinking that they may use that chance to implement BattleEye. It could also be a good opportunity to post a blogpost giving a brief update or doing something extra with the servers to mitigate DDOSing.

    Yes, this is true. However do Little Orbit want to set the precedent that banning people for simply editing things in the game that lets be honest, should've been there in the first place. I know plenty of TPS and FPS games on PC that have a toggle feature for sprinting and a hold feature for crouching. Look at any recent Battlefield game, although those games aren't entirely representative of the pinnacle of PC gaming the amount of features they allow you to change in those games including crosshairs, color of the crosshairs, transparency of HUD icons etc etc. It's just not good enough in my opinion anymore to just have the anemic features in APB, the game has been out for ages and its settings have remained pretty much consistent throughout its lifespan with the addition of anti-aliasing which no one uses because it's non competitive. Matt said, not to make changes to the files of the game in the QA but said he'd look into adding some of the features into the game and I'll definitely hold him to that, being half blind I'm still waiting for features that allow me to see colors a little better like the red of enemy name tags.
  21. I mean you can sort of do that anyway, 2 hours in both FC districts and you should have enough tickets to get yourself a high rank mod for a week. I don't think they should ever lower it however, I think it's a good deterrent to get people to not cheat. If you work your way through the ranks, it'll pay concessions, but if you decide to cheat you'll never get to have availability to 4 slot cars you can purchase with in-game cash or high level modifications. The availability of thos mods and cars, weapons are the only things we can sometimes have over cheaters.

    [GAME] Merging all servers

    Colby had the best culture, an unfortunate victim to segregation, tko is a product of Colby.

    How dramatic, but it looks like I already have a fan. No, I'm no fan of Little Orbit, in-fact there is nothing to be a fan of. I'd be lying if I said I was a fan of their other work which I know nothing of, I'm just not such a huge fan of neuroticism and melodramatisation, that's all.

    Do I even need to say at this point, I'm just baffled.

    Shini's spawn...

    So what you're actually saying is we should flip out and blow everything out of proportion and bash the new GM's? Gotcha.
