Nightmare and Vorny are right about the situation. I get the application for unofficial factions to get drug distro, but official factions? They've worked hard for their official status, why are they not trusted to help out with the distribution?Vornyy wrote: ↑Wed Mar 07, 2018 6:04 pmNightmare. wrote: ↑Wed Mar 07, 2018 4:52 pmI think the main issue was that FM thought it was unrealistic for gangs to have one - ten kilos of cocaine. I think everyone here can agree that gangs IRL have a whole lot more passing through than that. FM wanted the drug game to be realistic and thought handing out ounces of cocaine/weed every week was the answer.. Which of course, wasn't.
Exactly, but the problem it's still only shitty little amounts being handed out from what I'm witnessing personally. The fact you've got to fill out a job application to apply for drugs is pretty ridiculous alone if you ask me, these little few ounces here and there being passed on weekly/monthly simply aren't enough.. Especially when official faction's want to help out/supply unofficial ones. I don't understand why official faction's don't have the ability to create their own, doing crops etc.
You've got unofficial gangs relying on you for weight because you've built/are building in-game connections with them and the most you can hand them is about 2-3 ounces for their whole gang to work off, because if you try any more you'll have fuck all for your own faction. If each gang was to fill out their own application and got accepted there'd no longer be any need for faction's to build connections with one another & do business, other than for guns.
I'd have an easier time supplying people in real life with bulk than I do on this game at the moment and i'm a regular guy, nevermind a high ranking member of a big fuck off gang in America.
Why not put the power back in the official faction's hands so connections have to be built, it's only similar to how shit works in real life, people need to build connections with one another in order to buy weight and push it to their people.
It's flawed as fuck in my opinion & isn't getting any better, the roleplay around drugs might seem better as a whole but the system and way it's working is shit because people are posted up with fuck all and have to consider an ounce as "weight". Every single gang on this server should have enough work to be pushing constantly on the corners in their neighborhood, and with the amounts being handed out at the moment, there's not a chance that's going to happen.
I've no doubt in my mind that members of Tres Puntos or 3rd Gate Piru are the one's in charge of the drug distribution scheme and determine who gets what and how much.
As Vorny was saying, ounces is not enough. My faction South Central, Ganton, can move ounces within a couple of hours, but we can't. Instead we're forced to sell lower weights and turn people away, just to try and make our drugs last until the next re-up. It's like not like we're asking for kilos to be introduced every week, but how about a quater pound / half pound to the faction distributors?
