To prevent metagaming we have ingame rule two in place.
And on the other hand, the widely available body armours are not yet as far as that they would be concealed (and no matter how you rp your armor- if I wear my thick leather coat irl, you can also spot right away that is less penetrable than a t-shirt).

And in return, if someone's armed visibly, I will be less likely to fight them- no metagaming in that part. It's meant to discourage people from encounters.

If anything, armour-users should be forced to wear proper clothing all the time, as that item is actually ic (pun intended against people arguing to take /mask ic on the other thread), and would realistically be visible (no matter if simulated by a tactical vest, a military skin or the mentioned stiff leather jacket that we also have as skin ingame kinda, for example).

Armour can't be concealed?

If you encounter the right one, you wouldn't instantly go "He's got a vest". You can barely even see the difference.

I fully support this idea, as it does lead to MG. Even though there's a rule placed against it, you can not prove that the player went on the armour bar, to "rob" you or what-ever.

I did not say it cannot be concealed. I said that in most options it would not be, realistically.
On a sidenote, that dude sure looks good on his staged pictures, I highly doubt from his posing that once he moves, his vest stays completely concealed. T shirt slips up etc.

Perhaps but it depends on what gun is used, a Deagle almost instantly destroys all the armour in one shot, and I doubt people will cry HH because they took one additional shot as opposed to the usual 4.

Supporting this all the way, it would be really useful and since it it's scripted different armour types could be implemented and they can have different levels of toughness.

This needs to happen. People constantly metagame people with armour above their name and then pick them out for robbing since they know they have a PF/CCW.

I agree to this as a lot of people just simply look up to your AP bar and be like "nise kevler dood!". It's annoying.

Instead of having it visible on the nametag, it should be thrown in /stats.

Definitely reasonable to me.

If it weren't for this, people would be easily able to spot out who has CCW or PF (if those who have their licenses even buy armour). If the cop's names were a standard white while on-duty, it wouldn't let people be able to MG that they're a cop by their username color and/or whether they're wearing a vest or not... That's irrelevant though.
