Timed arrest for cops
« on: May 14, 2013, 02:35 pm »
So pretty much this adds more realism into the Dark RP world, i think. I recall someone made a MOTD change request about this sort a thing - http://www.bybservers.co.uk/index.php?topic=12351.0

So anyway, i'd like to see some sort of a 'click n hold' thing for the arrest baton with cops to stop the lunging and ruining a battle. The 'arrest move' would freeze the criminal and not allow him to draw/fire weapons whilst being arrested. The arrest would take about 5 secs i guess. The only thing stop that sorry ass criminal getting arrested is his buddies who haven't been frozen yet. I feel this is good because it simulates a real arrest like situation I.E. a cop throwing some fool down and cuffing him. This may also help with that problem of RDA when a cop is chasing a criminal through a crowd and accidentally takes the wrong guy before proceeding on with his chase.

+/- support and all...

PERFECT IDEA!

Under powers cops, but is really awesome.

Also, it could be made so the freeze has a wider radious but the arrest needs to be an exact click so cops can arrest people easier without spamming everywhere.

Also, should add a hud thing like the keypad that says "arresting" :D

LOVE THIS :D

No.

1: extreme easy to abuse (like tazers on some servers)
2: spending 5 seconds in DarkRP not moving is just asking to be killed
3: more reasons probably, you go figure

-If this were ever to be added it would be on a seriousRP server, such as RP2 was.

-support
Gangs already can eradicate an entire police force attempting a raid or anything. This would completely throw off the balance because as far as I am concerned an on-street gunfight between gangs and cops is somewhat balanced. exept I may request an "arrest undo" type of thing later.

jail-bug?

80% of the time the person isn't teleported to jail, even though it announces they were arrested.(And it auto-releases them because it looks like they escaped.)

Which is the reason why I don't arrest: I just gun them down.

Rather have them spend 300 seconds in jail, than them respawning with full weaponry again anyways :)

Not if said class spawns with guns.
